U.K. CHARTS: J HUS STREAMS TO #1
1/31/20

J Hus has surged ahead of Pet Shop Boys to claim this week’s U.K. Official Albums #1 with Big Conspiracy (Black Butter) on 24k combined chart sales. Over on singles, Lewis Capaldi has his second #1.

J Hus won the race on streaming, which count for 96% of his second album’s sales. Pet Shop Boys settle for third place with Hotspot (X2), as last week’s chart-topper, Music to be Murdered by (Polydor) by Eminem, claims second.

J Hus also has three songs in the Top 40: “Play Play” f/Burna Boy at #11;  “Big Conspiracy” f/iceè tgm at #19; and “Repeat” f/Koffee at #21.

British rapper M Huncho has the third highest new entry at #5 with his mixtape, Huncholini The 1st (Island).

Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go? (Polydor) lifts three places to #7 after cleaning up at the Grammys, and The Dave Clark Five retrospective, All The Hits (BMG), lands at #10.

Finally, in celebration or commiseration of Brexit day, remainer anthem “Ode To Joy” (Polydor)—Andre Rieu's version of Beethoven’s classic with the Johann Strauss Orchestra—secures the most downloads of the week at #30. A similar campaign was launched for a pro-Brexit song, Dominic Frisby's self-released “17 Million F**k Offs,” but the track missed the Top 40, stalling at #43.
