UMG TOPS U.K. Q1 BESTSELLERS
4/4/24

At the end of Q1, Noah Kahan has the bestselling single and album in the U.K. It’s the cherry on the cake for UMG, which counts nine out of the top 10 albums YTD.

“Stick Season” (Republic) is #1 on the singles Q1 Top 10 with over 850k U.K. sales in 2024 alone. It’s the most-streamed song of the year so far, with 99m streams since the beginning of January. Since its release, the track, which spent seven weeks at #1, has tallied over 1.4m chart units in total (it first charted at #69 in the U.K. in October last year).

Stick Season, Kahan’s third album tops the Q1 U.K. Top 10 with 123k 2024 sales. It’s the first of an impressive nine entries for UMG, which span releases from The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, Eminem, Elton John, ABBA and Ariana Grande.

UMG also rules the singles Q1 Top 10 with four entries. The remaining three are “Murder on the Dancefloor” (Polydor) by Sophie Ellis-Bextor at #3; “yes, and?” (Republic) by Grande at #8; and “Cruel Summer” (EMI) by Swift at #10.

Sony and Warner have three singles each in the Top 10. Warner counts the final albums entry with 50 Years — Don’t Stop (Rhino) by Fleetwood Mac at #6.
