U.K. CHARTS: MANCUNIAN MARVELS
3/8/24

The first partnership between former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher and Stone Roses guitarist John Squire—a bit of Mancunian rock royalty—goes to straight to #1 on the Official Albums Chart, outselling their closest competition 3:1. At singles, Beyoncé records her third straight week at #1.

Liam Gallagher & John Squire (Warner) earned 39,400 chart unit sales, 94% of which were physical and download sales. It was the week’s most-purchased album in the U.K.’s independent record shops; it tops the Official Vinyl Albums Chart as well.

Between his solo and band efforts, Gallagher now has 14 #1s; it is Squire’s first-ever U.K. chart-topper.

Coming in at #3 is The Mandrake Project (Duelist/BMG), the seventh solo album from Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson. Yard Act’s Where’s My Utopia? (Island) follows at #4.

The Kaiser Chiefs score their eighth Top 10 release as Kaiser Chiefs’ Eighth Album (V2) lands at #6. The seventh album from Manchester’s Everything Everything, Mountainhead (BMG), debuts at #9 followed by Skrapz’s Reflection (1&Only/EGA) at #10.

Following her impressive six wins at the BRIT Awards, RAYE’s My 21st Century Blues (Human Re Sources) rises 98 places to #5 and three of her songs climb into the Top 40 on Official Singles Chart: “Escapism” f/070 Shake is #13; her cassö and D-Block Europe collab “Prada” hits 18; and “Worth It” debuts at #38.

Atop the singles chart is Beyoncé’S “TEXAS HOLD ‘EM” (Parkwood/Columbia) which becomes her longest-running #1 single in 17 years. Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” (Warner) returns to its peak position of #2.

Moving up one slot each are Djo’s “End of the Beginning” (AWOL) to #4 and Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Carnival” (YZY) to #5.

Ella Henderson has her 10th Top 10 single as her Rudimental collab, “ALIBI” (Atlantic) hits, what else?, #10. At #26, Charli XCX’s “Von dutch” (Atlantic) is the highest new entry of the week.
