U.K. CHARTS: ROYAL CROWNED
5/7/21

Royal Blood have topped the U.K. Official Albums Chart with Typhoons (Warner Records) registering the biggest opening week for a British act in 2021. Over on singles, Tion Wayne & Russ Millions’ “Body” (Atlantic) lands at #1.

Typhoons’ 32k sales were more than the rest of this week’s Top 5 combined. It’s their third chart-topping album.

The Coral’s Coral Island (Modern Sky) is also new at #2 today while live album Celebrate the Music of Peter Green (BMG)—a tribute to Fleetwood Mac’s founding guitarist—enters at #3.

Young Heart (Atlantic) by Birdy is new at #4 and Fortitude (Roadrunner) from French heavy-metal act Gojira lands at #6.
