U.K. CHARTS: GAMBINO HITS A HIGH

Despite a low start of #57 on Monday, Childish Gambino has rocketed up the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart to surpass Jess Glynne and claim this week’s highest new entry at #14 with “This Is America” (Columbia)—his highest peak in Blighty as a lead artist to date.

Gambino reached #51 with “Redbone” in 2016, and in 2012 guested on Leona Lewis single “Trouble” (Syco), which reached #7.

Elsewhere on singles, Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa have earned a fourth week at #1 with “One Kiss” (Columbia/Warner Bros.), and Drake has risen one place to #2 with “Nice for What” (Island). Ariana Grande is down to #3 with “No Tears Left to Cry” (Island). 

Glynne has started at #16 with “I’ll Be There” (Atlantic). The single is her first new music as a lead artist since 2015,and preludes a second album that’s expected later in the year. 

On the Official Albums Chart, Frank Turner is this week’s highest new entry at #3 with Be More Kind (Polydor). The Greatest Showman soundtrack (Atlantic) now has a 15th non-consecutive week at #1, replacing Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys (Island), which moves down to #2.

Plan B has the second highest entry with Heaven Before All Hell Breaks Loose (Atlantic) at #5. Further down, Shinedown have their first U.K. Top 10 with ATTENTION ATTENTION (Warner Music) at #8, as does Jon Hopkins with Singularity (Domino) at #9.
