U.K. CHARTS: NEW PEAK FOR SCOTT

Travis Scott has secured his first U.K. Top 10 as ASTROWORLD (Epic) lands at #3 behind—what else?— Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (Polydor) and The Greatest Showman (Atlantic). Drake, meanwhile, notched his fourth week atop the Official Singles Chart.

ASTROWORLD, Scott’s third studio album, bests the performance of Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, which peaked at #19. Scott also landed three new tracks in the Top 40 on the Official Singles chart: “Sicko Mode” at #9; “Stargazing” at #15; and “Carousel” at #29.

JamesLiving in Extraordinary Times (BMG), which sat at #2 after the weekend, lands at #6, giving the Mancunian band their ninth Top 10. The LP is #1 on the Official Vinyl Albums chart. (Warners’ 50th anniversary pressing of The Doors’ “Hello, I Love You” tops the Vinyl Singles chart). Deaf Havana’s Rituals (SO/Silva Screen) debuts at #8.

Two catalog items saw significant spikes: Bob Marley and the Wailers' Legend (Island) rose eight slots to #16 and Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours (Warners) rose to #17 from #35.

After Drake’s “In My Feelings” (Island) saw the release of a video, the tune received 10.6m streams. George Ezra’s “Shotgun” (Columbia) is #2 for a fifth consecutive week and DJ Khaled's “No Brainer” (We The Best/Epic) ) with Justin Bieber, Quavo and Chance the Rapper, is up a slot to #3. Armada’s Loud Luxury f/Brando landed “Body” in the Top 10, coming in at #8.
