U.K. CHARTS: LUCKY #13 FOR ROBBIE
12/6/19

Robbie Williams has topped the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with The Christmas Present (Columbia) on 53k combined sales. In doing so, he equals a record held by Elvis as the solo act with the most #1s in U.K. chart history.

Williams now has 13 #1 albums under his belt as a solo artist, and 17 including his releases with Take That. Elvis is the top solo act with 13, and the overall record is held by The Beatles with 15.

Rod Stewart’s You’re In My Heart (Rhino) moves up one place to #2, while Coldplay’s Everyday Life (Parlophone) moves down to #3.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Tones & I’s “Dance Monkey” (Parlophone) spends a 10th week at #1 with 75k combined sales (including 9.39m streams). That matches another chart record as the longest running chart-topper by a female artist, sharing the accolade with Whitney Houston's “I Will Always Love You” from 1992, and Rihanna's “Umbrella” from 2007.
