U.K. CHARTS: STORMZY'S THIRD #1
1/3/20

Lewis Capaldi has claimed the first #1 of 2020 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent (Virgin EMI). Over on singles, Stormzy climbs to the top with “Own It” f/Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy (Atlantic/Merky) on 57k combined sales.

Capaldi has now spent seven non-consecutive weeks at #1 with his debut, which has racked up 641k combined sales since its release in May.

Elsewhere on albums, Stormzy edges back up to #2 with Heavy is the Head, and D-Block Europe land their third Top 10 album in 12 months with latest self-released mixtape, Street Trauma, at #9.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Stormzy rises to #1 from #5 to claim his third chart-topper in 12 months. Those 57k combined sales included 6.6m streams.

The last British rapper to score three #1 singles in the space of 12 months was Dizzee Rascal more than 10 years ago, who landed a trio of chart-toppers with “Holiday” (Dirtee Stank), “Dirtee Disco” and “Shout” between September 2009 and June 2010.
