And it means that for the last ten years the No 1 slot has been held by a British artist.
The top 10 albums in the UK in 2014 were:
- Ed Sheeran with X
- Sam Smith – The Lonely Hour
- George Ezra – Wanted on Voyage
- Paolo Nutini – Caustic Love
- Coldplay – Ghost Stories
- Paloma Faith – A Perfect Contradiction
- One Direction – Four
- Olly Murs – Never Been Better
- Pink Floyd – The Endless River (which also topped the vinyl charts)
- Take That – III
The highest selling foreign artist was Taylor Swift with 1989 which made No 11.
For the first time in 5 years Michael Buble didn’t have an album in the top 10.
FYI The top selling single was “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.
So well done all you British artists!
