U.K. CHARTS: HARRY'S 2ND DOUBLE
6/10/22

Harry Styles has scored his second U.K. chart double with Harry’s House (Columbia) and “As It Was” while Post Malone has the week’s highest new entry at albums.

Styles is the first artist of 2022 to score a second week at the top of the Official Albums Chart. The year has seen a remarkably high turnover at #1: 21 different albums have topped the chart in this year’s 23 weeks. The record for most unique #1s—43— was set in 2020.

Malone’s Twelve Carat Toothache (Island) debuts at #3, his third U.K. Top 5 LP. He also has three singles in the Top 40: “Cooped Up” f/Roddy Ricch #18, “I Like You (A Happier Song)” f/Doja Cat at #19, and “Lemon Tree”  at #40.

Michael Head & the Red Elastic Ban crack the Top 10 for the first time with Dear Scott (Modern Sky) at #6. It’s also #2 on the week’s Vinyl Albums Chart.

Albums from earlier eras see dramatic spikes this week. ABBA’s Gold: Greatest Hits (Polydor) is up two to #7 following the opening of ABBA Voyage in London; Queen’s Greatest Hits (Parlophone) is #8 as the band heads out on tour; Oasis’ hits collection Time Flies… 1994-2009 (Big Brother) is up to #14 and Kate Bush’s The Whole Story (EMI) vaults 57 places to #19 following the viral success of “Running Up That Hill.” Prince & The Revolution: Live (Sony CMG), a 1985 concert recording from Syracuse, N.Y., enters at #21.

Angel Olsen’s Big Time ((Jagjaguwar) is her third UK Top 40 to date, debuting at #24.

At singles, Bush’s 1985 track “Running Up That Hill” (Fish People) runs six slots up the chart to #2 to land right behind “As It Was,” now in its 10th week at #1. It’s a new peak for the song, which rose to #3 when it was initially released.

Sam Ryder’s SPACE MAN” (Parlophone) rises to #3 following his performance at last weekend’s Platinum Party at the Palace. Another Platinum Party at the Palace performer, George Ezra, enjoys a boost this week as “Green Green Grass” (Columbia) lands a new peak of #9.

LF System’s “Afraid to Feel” (Warner) is the week’s highest climber, vaulting incredible 56 places to #13 thanks to TikTok.
