Lionel Richie is top of the pops

singingLionel Richie has soared to the top of the album chart following his triumphant show at Glastonbury, according to the BBC.

Lionel Richie & The Commodores: The Definitive Collection previously made it to number 10 in the charts when it was released in 2003.

Lost Frequencies scored a debut UK number one single with Are You With Me.

This was the final Sunday broadcast for BBC Radio 1’s Official Chart Show, before moving to Fridays to tie in with the new global music release day.

Clara Amfo hosted the show before its move on 10 July to 16:00 BST on Fridays with Greg James, as part of his drivetime show.

Richie said he was already “overwhelmed performing at Glastonbury in front of all those people”, adding that “for the fans to make the album number one is unbelievable”.

Glastonbury headline act Florence and The Machine was at number two in the album chart with How Big, How Blue, while another performer from the festival, James Bay, was at number three with Chaos and Calm.

Taylor Swift stayed at four with 1989 and Ed Sheeran’s X stayed at five.

Number one single Are You With Me, by Lost Frequencies, the Belgian DJ and producer whose real name is Felix De Laet, has already topped the charts in Austria, German and Switzerland.

The single pushed Tinie Tempah’s Not Letting Go featuring Jess Glynne down to number two, followed by Rita Ora’s Poison, the week’s highest new entry.

Walk The Moon’s Shut Up and Dance stayed at number four, with the most streamed track of the week – Major Lazer’s Lean On, featuring MO and DJ Snake – at five. It has been listened to 2.21 million times in the last week.
