U.K. CHARTS: ARI'S PRIME POSITIONS
11/6/20

Ariana Grande has scored the double on the U.K.’s Official Charts, with Positions (Island) topping albums on 27,500 sales, and “Positions” remaining #1 on singles for a second week.

Positions is Grande’s fourth consecutive #1 on the Official Albums Chart after racking up 27.6m streams this week.

Over on singles, “Positions” is one of three entries for Grande in the Top 20: “34+35” is #9 and “Motive” f/Doja Cat is #16. The entries take her tally of U.K. Top 40 hits to 28.

Grande is the fourth artist to achieve the chart double in 2020—she follows DrakeEminem and Stormzy—and it’s the second time she has achieved the feat. She’s also the first female artist to score consecutive chart double wins in almost 10 years.

Elsewhere on albums, Sam Smith’s Love Goes (Capitol) is new at #2, followed by Cliff Richard with Music…The Air That I Breathe (East West/Rhino) at #3. Richard is the first artist ever to score a Top 5 album in eight consecutive decades.
