Noah Kahan Extends Reign Over U.K. Chart With ‘Stick Season’

Mr. Nimbus | 01/29/2024

Noah Kahan extends his winning season in the U.K., as the American artist logs a fourth consecutive week at No. 1, and nabs the top debut.

The Vermont singer and songwriter’s “Stick Season” (via Republic Records) enters a full month atop of the Official U.K. Singles Chart, raking-in a market-leading 8.7 million streams, the OCC reports.

Kahan sticks another top 10, his second, as “Homesick” (Polydor/Republic Records) featuring Sam Fender debuts at No. 5.

“Homesick” is also Fender’s second U.K. top 10 hit, following “Seventeen Going Under,” which this week vaults back into the top 40 following the release of the new collaboration. “Seventeen Going Under” returns at No. 32, having peaked at No. 3 in 2022.

Meanwhile, the parent to “Stick Season” and “Homesick,” Stick Season, lifts 4-2 for a new high on the Official U.K. Albums Chart.

Saltburn continues to light a flame under Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s 2001 hit “Murder on the Dancefloor” (Polydor). The British pop singer’s disco number lifts 3-2, its peak position from 23 years ago. Emerald Fennell’s dark drama is in the hunt for five BAFTAs, including best British film.

Another British pop nugget from the noughts is riding high on the U.K. chart, thanks to a sync to the silver screen. Natasha Bedingfield’s international breakthrough “Unwritten” (Phonogenic) improves 18-13. Originally released in 2004, “Unwritten” catches flight after its inclusion in the romcom “Anyone But You.”

Meanwhile, Benson Boone, the U.S.-born singer, multi-instrumentalist and TikTok star, who was named as MTV’s Global PUSH Artist for October 2023, is on target for his first U.K. top 20 appearance with “Beautiful Things” (Warner Records). It’s new at No. 18.

English singer Becky Hill and Australian producer Sonny Fodera enter the top tier with “Never Be Alone” (Polydor), new at No. 34. It becomes Becky’s 19th top 40, a tally that includes a No. 1 with Oliver Heldens on 2014’s “Gecko (Overdrive)”; and Fodera’s second overall.

U.S. viral artist David Kushner scores a second U.K. top 40 appearance with “Skin and Bones” (Miserable Music), new at No. 36. It’s the followup to “Daylight,” which last year climbed the ladder to No. 2.

Finally, Norwegian EDM star Kygo and “Sweet But Psycho” singer Ava Max bag a top 40 on debut with “Whatever” (Columbia/Kygo). “Whatever,” which lifts its chorus from Shakira’s English-language breakout single “Wherever, Whenever” from 2001, is new at No. 39. It’s Kygo’s 10th and Ava’s sixth U.K. top 40.
