U.K.'S BIGGEST SELLERS IN Q1
4/9/21

Dua Lipa claims the #1 position on the list of the best-selling albums of Q1 2021 in the U.K. with Olivia Rodrigo on top at singles. Celeste’s Not Your Muse was the only British album released this year to appear in the Top 10.

Lipa's Future Nostalgia (Warner Records) has logged 33 weeks in the Official Albums Top 10 since arriving just over a year ago, clocking 334k U.K. sales to date. That includes 69k this year, boosted by the release of its Moonlight Edition.

In total, there are six (and a half, counting Fleetwood Mac) British releases in the albums Top 10; only Celeste’s debut, Not Your Muse (Polydor), was released this year. At #2, Foo FightersMedicine at Midnight (Columbia) brings 2021’s total release tally up to two.

Universal counts five albums, Warner follows with three and Sony has two.

Rodrigo's “drivers license” (Polydor) is the U.K.’s biggest song of 2021 so far with 707k chart sales to date, including 84.2m streams. The singles Top 10 is slightly more current than the albums list:  Of the seven British-born releases, two arrived this year, and Rodrigo increases that count to three when including international tracks. The label’s tally is exactly the same as albums.
