U.K. CHARTS: TWO WINS FOR COLUMBIA

It’s a double win for Columbia Records in the U.K.: Harry Styles continues to have the #1 single and Arcade Fire has registered its fourth chart-topper on the Official Albums tally.

The Canadian alt-rock group’s WE follows The SuburbsReflektor and Everything Now to the top slot. It's also the week’s top seller on vinyl.

The second studio album from Scandinavia’s Sigrid, How to Let Go (Island), heads straight in at #2, while London-born rapper Knucks makes his Official Albums Chart debut at #3 with ALPHA PLACE (Nodaysoff). Jack Harlow makes it into the Top 5 for the first time as Come Home The Kids Miss You (Atlantic) lands at #4.

Soft Cell’s first studio album in 20 years, *Happiness Not Included (BMG), is #7, and Belle & Sebastian’s A Bit of Previous (Matador) is the Scottish indie group’s fifth Top 10 record, coming in at #8. Halestorm’s fifth studio album, Back From the Dead (Parlophone), opens at #9. Warpaint’s first record in six years, Radiate Like This (Heirlooms), is #21.

At singles, Styles’ “As It Was” enjoys its sixth week at #1, racking up more than 6.8m streams to remain the most-streamed track in the country.

Harlow’s “First Class” holds onto #2 as another two of his album’s tracks enter the Top 40: “Churchill Downs” f/Drake at #19 and “Dua Lipa” at #33. 

Lizzo gains her second U.K. Top 10 hit as “About Damn Time” (Atlantic) rises 11 slots to a new peak of #4. “Crazy What Love Can Do” (Warner) by David Guetta, Ella Henderson and Becky Hill rises two to #15. Lauren Spencer-Smith’s “Flowers” (Island) hits a new peak of #18.
