Meghan Trainor's 'All About That Bass' remains at the top of the UK singles chart

'All About That Bass' by American singer Meghan Trainor has held onto the top spot of the UK singles chart for a second consecutive week.

Meghan Trainor shot to No. 1 last week and has fought off competition from other high-charting new entries by selling a further 100,000 copies.

This week’s highest new entry comes from Nicki Minaj with ‘Ananconda’ which has landed at No. 3.

Minaj also takes up the No. 2 spot with ‘Bang Bang’ alongside Jessie J and Ariana Grande. Taylor Swift is down one to No. 4 with ‘Shake It Off’ and at No. 5 is a new entry from Jeremih featuting YG with ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em’.

New entries to the rest of the chart from Ella Henderson at No. 7 with ‘Glow’, ‘Resonance’ by Luvbug is in at No. 13, and Usher’s ‘Came To Give It To You’ debuts at No. 16 and gives Nicki Minaj her third appearance in this week’s chart thanks to her guest verse on the track.

A final new entry to this week’s chart is an all-star cover of The Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows’ at No. 20. The cover which features 26 artists – including Pharrell Williams, Lorde, Kylie Minogue, Florence Welch and Sam Smith – was recorded to mark the launch of BBC Music with proceeds from the track going towards Children In Need.
