U.K. CHARTS: INHALER GETS A WHIFF OF #1

Irish rock band Inhaler has hit #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with its debut, It Won’t Always Be Like This (Polydor), on 18k in sales. Over on singles, Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” (Atlantic) has a third week on top.

Inhaler is the first Irish act to top the U.K. chart with a debut album in 13 years; The Script were the last to do so, back in 2008. The majority of Inhaler's sales were physical—92%—and the album is this week’s best seller on vinyl.

There are two more new entries in this week’s Top 10: Tom Odell’s fourth record, Monsters (Columbia), opens at #4; Muse’s 2001 album Origin of Symmetry (Warner Music) is at #6 following a 20th anniversary reissue.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Sheeran's “Bad Habits” scored 101k in sales this week to remain on top, including 11.1m streams. The track continues to better its performance week-on-week since its release.

Dave and Stormzy’s first collaboration, “Clash” (NBR), is new at #3 today, the highest new entry of the week. The Kid LAROI’s collab with Justin Bieber, “Stay” (RCA), is also new, in at #5, and the new single from BTS, “Permission to Dance” (RCA), charts at #16. Billie Eilish’s “NDA” (Polydor) debuts at #23.
