U.K. CHARTS: REY'S F*#!ING #1
9/6/19

Lana Del Rey registered her fourth U.K. #1 album as Norman F**king Rockwell (Polydor) shoots to the top slot in its debut week. Ed Sheeran, who has the #2 album, continues to rule the singles side of the Official U.K. Chart thanks to a new remix.

Del Rey finished with 12,000 more sales than Sheeran’s No 6 Collaborations Project (Atlantic). Two-thirds of her tally came from physical sales; No 6 Collaborations Project is the week's most streamed album.

Tool returns to the Official Albums Chart for the first time in more than 13 years, with Fear Inoculum (Music for Nations) going in at #4, while the 25th anniversary reissue of Oasis' debut Definitely Maybe (Big Brother) lands at #6.

The solo debut from Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno, The S.L.P. (Sony), is #7 followed by British rapper Kano’s Hoodies All Summer (Parlophone) at #8. Sheryl Crow returns to the Top 10 for the first time in 16 years with her final album Threads (Big Machine) at #10.
