Taylor Swift Sets Record as ‘Evermore’ Blasts to No. 1 In U.K. | Billboard

Also, it’s the fastest sprint to six No. 1s since Robbie Williams and Westlife managed that haul between 2000 – 2006.

She’s Swift by name, a swift chart-topper by nature.

It’s that time of year, and the top end of the albums tally is dominated by Christmas-themed records, including Michael Ball and Alfie Boe’s Together At Christmas (Decca), which dips 2-3; Michael Buble’s Christmas, up 7-4; and Andrea Bocelli’s Believe (Decca), up 10-5.

Further down the list are new LPs from Kid Cudi (Man On The Moon III – The Chosen new at No. 26 via Republic Records), British ’90s rockers James (Live In Extraordinary Times at No. 31 via Nothing But Love Music), Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins (Christmas Spectacular at No. 36 via Decca) and Australian electronic act Avalanches (We Will Always Love You at No. 39 via EMI).

Meanwhile, Mariah Carey rules the Official U.K. Singles Chart for a second consecutive week with “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (Columbia), ahead of Wham’s ‘80s classic “Last Christmas” (RCA), which has logged 70 weeks on the list and never lifted higher than its current position of No. 2.
