U.K. CHARTS: SELENA'S FIRST TOP 10
1/17/20

Selena Gomez’s Rare (Polydor) almost scored the Official Albums #1 in the U.K. this week, finishing 637 combined chart sales shy of Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (Virgin EMI). Over on singles, Future f/Drake’s “Life is Good” (RCA) is the highest new entry at #3.

Capaldi’s debut album , Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (Virgin EMI), logs an eighth week at #1. Despite coming in at #2, Gomez has another win: It’s her first U.K. Top 10.

Last week’s #1, Stormzy’s Heavy Is The Head (Atlantic/Merky), drops to #3. British band Easy Life, who had the highest new entry midweek, end at #7 with their third mixtape, Junk Food (Island), which is this week's biggest-seller on vinyl.

Sheku Kanneh-Mason has set a new Official Chart record today while entering at #8 with his second album, Elgar (Decca). He's the highest-charting cellist of all time in the U.K., and the first to break the Official Albums Chart Top 10.
