U.K. CHARTS: ANOTHER #1 FOR WELLER
7/10/20

Paul Weller has scored his fifth solo U.K. Official Albums #1 with On Sunset (Polydor) on 24,000 sales. Over on singles, “Savage Love (Laxed—Siren Beat)” by Jawsh 685 & Jason Derulo (RCA) holds onto the top spot for a second week.

Including chart-topping records with The Jam and The Style Council, Weller has seven #1s in the U.K. overall. This means he claims the feat of reaching #1 on the Official Albums Chart across five consecutive decades, alongside Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

Pop Smoke’s posthumous release Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon (Republic) is #2, making it  the highest-charting debut album by an international rap artist in 17 years; 50 Cent’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ debuted at #2 in 2003.

Completing an all-new Top 3 this week is Katherine Jenkins Cinema Paradiso (Decca). The classical singer’s 13th studio album is her 10th Top 10 collection and highest-charting since 2007’s #3-peaking Rejoice.

Sparks are new at #7 with A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip (BMG), and Cannibal (Music for Nations) from metalcore band Bury Tomorrow ends the week at #10.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, “Savage Love (Laxed—Siren Beat)” claimed the top spot again on 63k chart sales, including 7.2m streams.
