U.K.CHARTS: AC/DC'S RECORD WEEK
11/20/20

With 62,000 sales of Power Up, Columbia’s AC/DC has claimed the biggest first-week album sales of 2020 in the U.K., landing at #1 on the Official Albums Chart. Over on singles, Ariana Grande wins a chart battle with Billie Eilish to remain on top. Power Up is AC/DC’s fourth #1 album in the U.K. and their first in a decade. 

Elsewhere, McFly’s comeback release, Young Dumb Thrills (BMG), is new at #2, followed by Andrea Bocelli’s Believe (Decca) at #3 and Paloma Faith’s Infinite Things (RCA) at #4. 

Dutch conductor Andre Rieu’s Jolly Holiday (UMG) is #6, Sophie Ellis-Bextor compilation Songs From the Kitchen Disco (Cooking Vinyl) ends at #8, and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s new arrangement of Johnny Cash songs, Johnny Cash and the RPO (Sony), lands today at #10.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles chart, Grande’s “Positions” (Island) has a fourth week at #1 on 5.6m streams. Eilish sits just 960 sales behind at #2 with new entry, “Therefore I Am” (Polydor).

This year’s BBC Children in Need charity single, “Stop Crying Your Heart Out” (Decca), finishes at #7 as the most downloaded single of the week with 22,000 digital sales.
