U.K. CHARTS: A CROWN FOR ROYAL BLOOD

Royal Blood has topped the U.K. Official Albums Chart, with Typhoons (Warner Records) registering the biggest opening week for a British act in 2021. Over on singles, Tion Wayne & Russ Millions’ “Body” (Atlantic) lands at #1.

Typhoons’ 32k in sales was more than the rest of this week’s Top 5 combined. It’s Royal Blood's third chart-topping album.

The Coral’s Coral Island (Modern Sky) is new at #2 today, while live album Celebrate the Music of Peter Green (BMG)—a tribute to Fleetwood Mac’s founding guitarist—enters at #3.

Young Heart (Atlantic) by Birdy is new at #4 and Fortitude (Roadrunner) from French heavy-metal act Gojira lands at #6.

There are three more new entries in the Top 10: girl in red’s debut, if i could make it go quiet (AWAL) at #7, Pink Floyd's Live at Knebworth 1990 (Legacy) at #8 and DJ Khaled’s Khaled Khaled (Sony) at #10.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Wayne and Millions’ “Body” rises three places to #1 on 71k in sales (including 10.7m streams), becoming the first drill song to top the chart. The rise was powered by a remix featuring Bugzy Malone, Fivio Foreign, Darkoo, Buni, ArrDee and E1 & ZT.

Lil Nas X's long-reigning #1, “MONTERO (Call Me by Your Name)” (RCA), drops to #2 and Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More” f/SZA (Ministry of Sound) is lifted three places to a new peak of #3.

Billie Eilish has this week’s highest new entry with “Your Power” (Polydor) at #5, while The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” (Island) flies 12 places to a new peak of #8 following a remix featuring Ariana Grande.
