P!nk and Stormzy Continue U.K. Chart Reigns
The continuing success of Hurts 2B Human is especially notable as it's the first time, among P!nk's three U.K. chart-toppers, that she's spent more than a single week at No. 1.
She holds off the challenge of Vampire Weekend, who arrive in the runner-up spot, a career best, with Father of the Bride (Columbia/Sony).
Billie Eilish holds at No. 3 with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (Interscope/Universal), and there's another personal best at No. 4 as Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes debut with End of Suffering (International Death Cult). The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner Music) is down 4-5.
Tom Walker's What a Time to Be Alive (Relentless/Sony) is steady at No. 6, as is Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody (Virgin/Universal) at No. 7. The new edition of Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next (Republic/Universal) helps its 14-10 revival. Long-running British rockers Wildhearts open at No. 11 with Renaissance Men (Graphite) and Lucy Spraggan at No. 12 with her fifth album Today Was a Good Day (Cooking Vinyl). Now That's What I Call Music 102 (Sony Music CG/Virgin EMI/Universal) spends a fourth straight week at the top of the compilations chart.
The Official Charts Company reports streams of over 11 millon for the Stormzy single, 1.3 million ahead of Lil Nas X's “Old Town Road” (Lil Nas X/Sony), which is steady at No. 2. Lewis Capaldi moves back 4-3 with the former No. 1 “Someone You Loved” (EMI/Universal), as well as landing the highest debut of the week with “Hold Me While You Wait” at No. 4.
Eilish is up 6-5 with “Bad Guy,” while Shawn Mendes starts at No. 9 with “If I Can't Have You” (EMI/Universal).
