U.K. CHARTS: SLOWTHAI SECURES #1
2/19/21

Tyron (Method) by British rapper Slowthai hits #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart while Olivia Rodrigo holds onto the top spot at singles despite fierce competition from Lil Tjay and 6LACK.

Tyron was a clear winner on albums this week, selling more than double the amount shifted by its closest competitor, last week’s #1, Foo Fighter’s Medicine at Midnight (Columbia).

The second album from Manchester band Pale WavesWho Am I? (Dirty Hit), is new at #3, followed by Dua Lipa’s Moonlight Edition of Future Nostalgia (Warner Records) at #4.

The Pretty Reckless’ Death by Rock and Roll (Century Media) enters at #6, while the David Bowie live album Look at the Moon (Parlophone) is new at #16.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Rodrigo’s “drivers license” (Polydor) remains #1 for a sixth consecutive week.

The track sits just 1,700 sales ahead of “Calling My Phone” (Columbia) by Lil Tjay and 6LACK, which settles for second place today despite claiming the most-streamed release of the week with 7.2m plays.

“Friday” (Ministry of Sound) by Riton & Nightcrawlers f/Mufasa & Hypeman climbs six places to #10, while Taylor Swift’s “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” (EMI) is new at #12.

ATB’s “Your Love (9pm)” (EMI) with Topic and A7S lifts two places to #21, West London rapper Central Cee’s “Commitment Issues” (ADA) lands at #23, and Lipa’s “We’re Good” (Warner Records) is new at #25.
