U.K. CHARTS: THE WEEKND RULES

The Weeknd has his second #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with After Hours (Island) hitting the top on 26k combined sales. Over on singles, the reign of HITCO/Ministry of Sound's Saint Jhn continues.

After Hours sold more than double that of its closest competitor, Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent (Virgin EMI) at #2. Of The Weeknd's 26k sales, 78% came from streaming. 

Morrissey’s I Am Not a Dog on a Chain (BMG) is the second highest new albums entry today at #3. 

The late Kenny Rogers has reached a new peak at #6 with his All The Hits & All New Love Songs (EMI) compilation, which charted at #14 following its release in 1999. 

Manchester band The Slow Readers Club land their highest charting album yet with The Joy Of The Return (Modern Sky) at #9. A previously unreleased rarities EP from David BowieIs It Any Wonder? (Parlophone), closes the Top 10 at #10.

Following its surprise release on Sunday, Childish Gambino’s 3.15.20 (RCA) lands at #20, and their first full-length mixtape from rap duo Young T & Bugsey, Plead the 5th (Black Butter), arrives at #25.

On the U.K’s Official Singles Chart, SAINt JHN’s “Roses” (HITCO/Ministry of Sound) spends a second week at the top. The track scored 60k combined chart sales, including 7.4m streams.

Elsewhere in the Top 5, Joel Corry’s club anthem “Lonely” (Asylum) continues to climb, rising one place to #4, and Dua Lipa’s “Physical” (Warner Records) is up two to #5. “Boyfriend” (Polydor) by Mabel just missed out on this week’s Top 10, jumping six places to #11.

The Weeknd scores three Top 40 entries from After Hours: “In Your Eyes” is this week’s highest new entry at #17, marking his 15th Top 20 hit; the album’s title track rebounds 20 places to #24; and his recent chart-topper, “Blinding Lights,” is at #2.
