U.K. CHARTS: CAPALDI BACK AT #1

Lewis Capaldi has claimed the first #1 of 2020 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent (Virgin EMI). Over on singles, Stormzy climbs to the top with “Own It” f/Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy (Atlantic/Merky) on 57k combined sales.

Capaldi has now spent seven non-consecutive weeks at #1 with his debut, which has racked up 641k combined sales since its release in May. 

Elsewhere on albums, Stormzy edges back up to #2 with Heavy is the Head, and D-Block Europe land their third Top 10 album in 12 months with latest self-released mixtape, Street Trauma, at #9.

A post-seasonal boost sees Sheeran's Divide (Atlantic) climbing 28 slots to #18. Following the Fleetwood Mac evening on BBC Four, 50 Years–Don't Stop (Warner Records) rockets 30 places to #22, and Taylor Swift's Lover (Virgin EMI) is up 16 to #25.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Stormzy rises to #1 from #5 to claim his third chart-topper in 12 months. Those 57k combined sales included 6.6m streams. 

The last British rapper to score three #1 singles in the space of 12 months was Dizzee Rascal more than 10 years ago, who landed a trio of chart-toppers with “Holiday” (Dirtee Stank), “Dirtee Disco” and “Shout” between September 2009 and June 2010.

Stormzy beats strong competition from Capaldi, whose “Before You Go” zooms to #2 from 12.

Harry Styles’ “Adore You” (Columbia) breaks into the Top 10 for the first time today at #7, and The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights’ (Island) reaches a new peak of #11.

Camila Cabello f/DaBaby's “My Oh My”  (Syco) rises to #13 from #49, and “Falling” by Alamo’s Trevor Daniel zooms 31 places to #14.

New entries this week come from D-Block Europe, who enter at #29 with “No Cellular Site,” and J Hus lands at #33 with “No Denying” (Black Butter).
