U.K. CHARTS: A 5TH #1 FOR ARI
3/15/24

Ariana Grande has scored her fifth U.K. #1 album as eternal sunshine (Republic) shoots straight away to #1. Beyoncé has her longest-running chart-topper on the Official Singles Chart.

Grande joins Celine Dion, Prince and Green Day as artists with five U.K. #1s. For Grande, it’s five in a row as only her first two albums missed the top slot. eternal sunshine is also #1 on the Official Vinyl Albums Chart.

Coming in at a career best #2 is Judas Priest’s 19th album Invincible Shield (Columbia). They had previously peaked at #4 with 1980’s British Steel.

Also celebrating a personal best this week is Bleachers. Jack Antonoff, Zem Audu, Mikey Freedom Hart, Sean Hutchinson, Mike Riddleberger and Evan Smith score their first-ever Official Albums entry as their self-titled fourth album, released by Dirty Hit, lands at #5. Bleachers was the most-purchased physical album of the week in the U.K.’s independent record shops.

Another career-best was earned by Grace Petrie, whose Build Something Better (Robot Needs Home) hit #28.

At singles, Beyoncé celebrates a full month at #1 with “TEXAS HOLD ‘EM” (Parkwood/Columbia). It bests her previous record of three weeks in the top slot which she achieved twice: “Crazy in Love” in 2003 and “Beautiful Liar” w/Shakira in 2007.

Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” (Warner) came in second, just 1,700 chart units behind.

Grande landed three songs in the Top 15. She has the week’s highest new entry with “we can’t be friends (wait for your love)” at #3, followed by “yes, and?” rising five to #6 and “bye” debuting at #13.

Billie Eilish had two things at work this week pushing “What Was I Made For?” (Darkroom/Interscope) to #16: the release of a 7” vinyl and an Oscar win for Best Song.

Bryson Tiller’s “Whatever She Wants” (RCA) is up three to #17; 4batz has his Official U.K. Chart debut thanks to Drake as “act ii – date @ 8” (OVO) hits #18.
