1/25/21

Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” (Polydor) has earned a second week at the top of the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, while British rock outfit You Me at Six enter at #1 on albums with Suckapunch (Underdog/AWAL).

“drivers license” shifted 117k in chart sales this week, three times more than its closest rival, “Don’t Play” (Atlantic) by Anne-MarieKSI and Digital Farm Animals, a new entry at #2.

With 13.7m streams, “drivers license” has the biggest one-week figure for a #1 single since Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” (Island) debuted at the top with 16.9m streams in January 2019.

Grande’s “34+35” rounds out this week’s Top 3 after rising eight places thanks to a new version of the song featuring Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat released on 1/15.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, there are new highs for The Kid LAROI's “Without You” (RCA) at #5 and Meduza’s “Paradise” f/Dermot Kennedy (Island) at #6.
