The Weeknd provides a blinding efficiency on today’s Official Albums Chart as he lands his second UK Number 1 album with After Hours.
With 26,000 chart sales – 78% of which is comprised by streaming comparable sales – After Hours more than doubles the efficiency of its closest competitor, Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Degree.
After Hours is the Canadian’s second Number 1 album in the UK, following 2015’s Beauty Behind The Insanity.
On the other hand, Morrissey debuts at Number 3 with I Am Not A Pet dog On A Chain, his 15 th Leading 10 as a solo artist. The late Kenny Rogers arrives 10 with All the Hits & & All New Love Tunes at Number 6, a brand-new peak for the 1999 album, following his death aged 81 on March 20.
Mancunian rock band The Slow Readers Club land their highest charting album yet with The Happiness of the Return, debuting at Number 9, while formerly unreleased David Bowie EP Is It Any Marvel? gets in at Number 10 following its release on vinyl – the week’s most significant seller on black wax.
Childish Gambino’s brand-new album 3.1520 lands at Number 20 after being surprise-released mid-week on March 22; Nottingham rap duo Young T & & Bugsey reach Number 25 with their first full- length mixtape Plead the 5th. United States pop newbie Conan Gray gets in at 30 with his debut album Kid Krow.
