U.K. CHARTS: 'PHONICS CLAIM 8TH #1
3/11/22

Stereophonics have scored their eighth #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with Oochya! (Ignition). Over on singles, Dave has hit #1 with the fastest-selling single of the year.

Oochya! outsold its closest competition by 2:1, resulting in Stereophonics joining the likes of Taylor Swift, Oasis and R.E.M. as artists with the most Official U.K. #1 albums ever.

Marillion’s An Hour Before It’s Dark (Ear Music) is also new at #2 today, scoring the band their highest entry on the chart since 1987. Following his first arena tour, Dave’s second set, We’re All Alone In This Together (NBR), climbs back into the Top 5 at #5.

Elsewhere, a 20th anniversary remastered edition of The Coral’s self-titled debut (Run On) re-enters the chart at #7, and the debut from Kojey Radical, Reason to Smile (Warner Music U.K.), lands at #11.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Dave’s “Starlight” is the first song to go straight in at #1 in 2022. It’s his second #1 with combined chart sales of 63k, including 7.7m streams—the biggest opening week for a track this year.

Luude’s “Down Under” (Warner Records U.K.) has cracked the Top 5 for the first time, moving up one to #5. Sam Fender’s “Seventeen Going Under” (Polydor) rises one to #6, Mimi Webb’s “House on Fire” (Epic) also rises one to #7, and the self-released “Overseas” by D-Block Europe and Central Cee does the same to #8.

Outside the Top 10, A1 x J1 and Tion Wayne have a new entry at #11 with “Night Away (Dance)” (EMI), while Russ Millions, Buni and YV have this week’s highest climber with “Reggae & Calypso” (One Of A Kind Music) rising 34 places to #12.
