U.K. CHARTS: FAT BUOYS
5/21/21

Olivia Rodrigo claims her second Top 5 single on the Official Singles Chart as Paul Weller extends his #1 success at albums across five decades.

Weller, the former frontman of The Jam and Style Council, claims his sixth #1 as a solo artist as Fat Pop (Polydor) opens at #1, with 91% physical sales. Weller first hit #1 with The Jam in 1982; his solo sets have topped the chart in the ‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s and ‘20s.

Weller held off J. Cole’s The Off-Season (Interscope), which registered the most streams of album in a single week this year. St. Vincent scores a new chart peak—#4—with her  sixth album, Daddy’s Home (Loma Vista). The Black KeysDelta Kream (Nonesuch), at #5, is their fourth U.K. Top 10 album. Be Right Back (Famm) by BRIT Award-winning soul singer Jorja Smith debuts at #9, becoming her second Top 10 record.

At singles, Rodrigo’s “good 4 u” (Geffen) opens at #2 behind “Body” by Atlantic’s Tion Wayne & Russ Millions, which clocks its third week at #1 with 71k chart sales. “Good” follows “driver’s license,” which went straight to #1 on its release in January and spent nine straight weeks at the top.

Three songs from Cole’s The Off-Season pile into the Top 20: “My Life” (#13) “Pride Is The Devil” (#15); and “Amari” (#16). The other Top 40 debut comes from Warner’s  Bella Poarch, whose “Build a Bitch” opens at #37.
