Ariana Grande's Positions opens at top spot of UK chart

Ariana Grande's Positions opens at top spot of UK chart
Ariana Grande's new single 'Positions' opens on top of the UK chart, earning the popstar her seventh UK number one single.

Ariana Grande has notched up her seventh UK number one with new single 'Positions' after impressive first-week sales of 61,000, according to data from the Official Charts Company.

The track is the first release from her new album of the same name, released on Friday, and pushes last week's chart-topper, Internet Money's 'Lemonade', down to two.

KSI debuts at three with 'Really Love', a collaboration with Craig David, who lands his highest-charting single in 15 years, while Little Mix's 'Sweet Melody' opens at eight.

Elsewhere, James Arthur scores a surprise hit with a track from 2016, 'Train Wreck', which is in the chart at number 24 after gaining traction on TikTok.

Over on the albums chart, music legend Bruce Springsteen scores his 12th UK number one album with Letter To You, making him the first person to achieve a UK number one album as a solo artist in five consecutive decades.
