U.K. CHARTS: BEY REIGNS
8/5/22

Beyoncé has her fourth solo U.K. #1 album with RENAISSANCE (Columbia/ Parkwood). Over on singles, LF System claim a fifth week at the top.

RENAISSANCE outsold its closest competition 3:1 to reach the summit today. The set is also this week’s most-purchased on vinyl.

Harry StylesHarry’s House (Columbia) remains at #2, while Ed Sheeran’s = (Atlantic) does the same at #3. The Weeknd’s The Highlights (Republic) rises one to #5, as does Olivia Rodrigo’s SOUR (Geffen), up from #6 to #5.

Maggie Rogers’ second set, Surrender (Polydor), enters at #6. Just outside the Top 10, Elvis Presley’s ELV1S—30 NUMBER 1 HITS (Sony) lifts one place to #12, bolstered by Baz Luhrmann’s biopic, Elvis.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, despite strong competition from Beyoncé’s “BREAK MY SOUL,” LF System’s “Afraid to Feel” (Warner Records) remains at #1. The track accumulated more than 5.1m streams this week.

“BREAK MY SOUL” flies four spots to #2, affording Bey her highest-charting solo hit in 14 years (since “If I Was a Boy” in 2008). It’s the U.K.’s most-downloaded track of the week.

Two other cuts from RENAISSANCE debut inside the Top 20: “CUFF IT” at #14 and “ALIEN SUPERSTAR” at #16.

OneRepublic make a return to the singles Top 10 today with Top Gun: Maverick anthem, “I Ain’t Worried” (Mosley/Interscope), jumping two to #10.
