 U.K. CHARTS: SABRINA CARPENTER RULES SINGLES, TAYLOR SWIFT RECONQUERS ALBUMS
5/17/24

We’ve exhausted every possible coffee and caffeine pun, so we’ll just state the fact: Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” is the U.K.’s #1 pop song for the third week.

“Espresso” was streamed 8.5 million times during that week. Carpenter held off a bid by Post Malone and Morgan Wallen, whose multi-genre hit “I Had Some Help” came in at #2 and trailed “Espresso” by less than 2,000 chart units.

“I Had Some Help” is the ninth Top 10 single for Malone and the first for Wallen, who is crossing over in the U.K. much as he has in the U.S.

In other chart action, Kendrick Lamar’s diss track “Not Like Us” moved up four spots to #6, and “Belong Together” by Mark Ambor elevated to #11.

And on the album chart, Kings of Leon’s Can We Please Have Fun rocketed to #2 in its first week, giving the KoL their ninth U.K. Top 10 album.

You’ll never guess who’s #1: Taylor Swift. As the Eras Tour voyages to Europe, THE TORTURED POETS DEPARTMENT rises one spot, spending its third non-consecutive week at the top.

In non-Taylor album action, Gunna’s One of Wun sits at #4, Dua Lipa drops from first to third with Radical Optimism and the 20th anniversary re-release of Keane’s Hopes and Fears lands at #3.
