On This Day In Music History

On this day in 1978, John Travolta and Olivia Newton John went to number 1 on the US singles chart with ‘You’re The One That I Want‘ which was also number 1 in the UK.

In 2007, Rihanna went to number 1 on the UK album chart with her third album Good Girl Gone Bad, featuring the single ‘Umbrella’. The song spent 10 consecutive weeks at number 1. 

In 2019, Ed Sheeran was deemed the most-played artist in the UK in 2018, while ‘Feel It Still’ by Portugal The Man was 2018’s most-played song. Sheeran topped the chart despite not releasing new music; and without an entry in the Top 10 most-played tracks, suggesting his entire catalogue of hits remains on rotation on the radio.
