U.K. CHARTS: CELESTE DEBUTS AT #1
2/5/21

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

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

The second album from London rapper Fredo’s Money Can’t Buy Happiness (Since 93) 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. It’s this week’s best-selling album in U.K. independent record shops.
