Elsewhere in the Top 10, a 40th anniversary expanded edition of The Rolling StonesTattoo You (Polydor) charts at #7 and the debut EP from Mimi Webb, Seven Shades of Heartbreak (Epic), opens at #9. Prioritise Pleasure (Universal) by Self Esteem is new at #11.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Adele’s “Easy on Me” (Columbia) remains at #1 for a second week with 103k sales, including 11m streams.

The Anxiety’s viral hit “Meet Me at Our Spot” (Polydor) climbs five places to a new peak at #12, and Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd claim this week’s highest new entry with "Moth to a Flame" (Republic) at #15.

Finally, Digga D’s “Red Light Green Light” (EGA) lands at #17 to become his ninth Top 40 single.
