Take That’s latest album Progress knocks Susan Boyle off the top spot and beats Rihanna’s Loud. As WelcheMusic already reported, the lead single “The Flood” peaked at No.2 last week. A position that the group retains this week. Sales were helped from the performance on the BBC Children in Need charity event.
Rihanna prevented Take That from topping the singles chart last week, and the boys return the favor as Loud enters at No.2. The album also features the second part of the Eminem duet, which was covered in a previous WelcheMusic post. Over on the singles chart, Rihanna falls to No.4 with “Only Girl (In the World),” and bows at No.18 with the former US No.1 “What’s My Name?”.
There are plenty of new entries on the album chart with Andre Rieu’s classical album Moonlight Serenade bowing at No.4, followed by new entries from P!nk (No.5) and Bruce Springsteen (No.8).
