U.K. CHARTS: A CELESTE-IAL DEBUT

Polydor’s Celeste is the first female British artist in five years to see her debut album open at #1 in the U.K. Over on singles, Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” spends a fourth week on top.

Celeste's Not Your Muse is the first debut album from a British woman to top the U.K.'s Official Albums Chart since Jess Glynne’s I Cry When I Laugh (Atlantic) in 2015.

The second album from London rapper FredoMoney Can’t Buy Happiness (Since 93), meanwhile, is new at #2 today; it’s the U.K.’s most-streamed album of the week.

Newcomer Arlo Parks also makes a strong debut with her first album, Collapsed in Sunbeams (Transgressive), at #3. The LP is this week’s best selling in U.K. independent record shops.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, Steven Wilson’s The Future Bites (Caroline) enters at #4, and Chip’s new mixtape, Snakes & Ladders (Cash Motto), lands at #7.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles chart, “drivers license” remains on top with 69,000 in chart sales, including 8.3m streams.

A remix of “Wellerman” (Polydor) from TikTok star Nathan Evans with 220 Kid and Ted climbs one place to #2, followed by this week’s highest new entry, Fredo f/Dave’s “Money Talks,” at #3.

Irish producer Shane Codd’s “Get Out My Head” (Polydor) rebounds three places to #8, while new peaks are reached by Tiesto’s “The Business” (Atlantic) at #11 and Doja Cat’s "Streets" (Ministry of Sound) at #12.
