Brit Sweep: December 17, 2016...


Let's head across the Atlantic once more to check out the notable singles and albums making the charts in the UK this week...

On the official British singles chart, Clean Bandit along with Anne-Marie and Sean Paul steal a sixth week at #1 with "Rockabye"...

Two new songs fought for the #1 spot this week, with neither winning even after appearing on the finale X Factor UK episode. First off, the third member of One Direction to have a solo hit is Louis Tomlinson, as "Just Hold On" with Steve Aoki lands in the #2 spot. It's DJ Aoki's first time in the top ten. His previous high was at #25 in 2011 with "No Beef"...
