U.K. CHARTS: CAPALDI BACK TO #1
5/22/20

Lewis Capaldi is celebrating the first anniversary of his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent (Virgin EMI), with a return to #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart. Over on singles, DaBaby remains on top with 57k combined chart sales.

Capaldi’s debut, which has racked up more than 900k sales so far, spends a 10th non-consecutive week at the summit this week. The record has yet to exit the Top 10 since its release this time last year; its lowest point was #7 in November.

Elsewhere, six new releases feature in today's Top 40, led by Future with High Off Life (RCA) at #5. Polo G is right behind at #6 with The GOAT (Columbia).

Despite peaking at #1 midweek, Sleaford Mods end at #10 with retrospective, All That Glue (Rough Trade).

On the U.K.’s Official Singles chart, DaBaby f/Roddy Ricch ’s “Rockstar” (Polydor) has its strongest week of sales and streams yet. The track’s 57k sales included 7m streams, fending off competition from Doja Cat, whose “Say So” (Ministry of Sound) remains at #2.
