King of #1's.
Lewis Capaldi has officially done it again, lads.
King of number ones has moved from singles to albums now, and has only gone and whipped up his first ever UK #1 album for his debut!
The MTV PUSH: Ones To Watch 2019 winner's ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’ has not only slayed the charts, with three singles now in the Top 10 including ‘Someone You Loved’, ‘Hold Me While You Wait’ and ‘Grace’, but his album has in fact broken Ariana Grande’s ‘thank u, next’ record for fastest seller of the year so far!
It’s outperformed the rest of the UK Top 10 combined, with over 89,506 combined sales (Grande racking up 65,214), 46% of which go to physical sales, and 40.5 million plays across audio and video streaming platforms. Legends only.
