1/15/21

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” (Polydor) set an Official Chart record this week, racking up 2.407m streams in a 24-hour period on its way to #1. On albums, Barry Gibb claims his first U.K. #1 as a solo artist with Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers' Songbook, Vol. 1 (EMI).

“Drivers License” recorded 95k chart sales, including 10.9m streams, to outpace midweek leaders Little Mix’s “Sweet Melody” (RCA), which drops to #2, and Ed Sheeran’s “Afterglow” (Atlantic), which finishes at #3. Rodrigo posted the biggest opening week for a #1 debut single since ZAYN’s “Pillowtalk” in February 2016.

The record “Drivers License” set was for the highest number of streams in a single day for a non-Christmas song. The previous record holder was Sheeran’s “Shape Of You.”

Back at albums, Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers' Songbook, Vol. 1 finished the week with twice the chart sales of its closest competition with 83% of the album’s final made up of physical copies. Gibb’s previous chart peak as a solo artist was with 2016’s In The Now at #2.
