The UK Official Album and Singles Charts now include Streaming.

Sam Smith's "In the Lonely Hour" is the first no.1 album on the newly integrated Charts.

Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" is the first no 1 single.

Single "sales" for last week totalled 6.6 million - but streaming made up almost 60% of this figure.

You wonder how artists are making any money these days with Google Play allegedly helping albums chart by selling albums at 99p!   Google Play reduced albums by the Brit Award winners to £3.99.
