Heaven hell leads an action-packed midweek chart, before Living in the rotunda (Sony Music CG), the 2019 live recording of Saucerful of Secrets, the prog-rock supergroup of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason.
The top five is tight halfway.
According to Official Charts Company, only 1,700 sales of charts split up Heaven hell from the currently ranked fifth album, Potter Payper’s Training day 3 (2020 Potter Payper).
Yusuf / Cat Stevens also cracked the leading peloton, at No.3 Tea for the Tillerman 2 (UMC), a re-recording of the veteran singer-songwriter’s 1970 ensemble that initially reached No. 20.
Hip-hop outfit Run The Jewels returns to # 4 with RTJ4 (BMG) following its release in physical formats. Meanwhile, Alicia Keys’ latest effort Alicia (RCA) starts at # 7 on chart explosion, one spot ahead of Australian country star Keith Urban’s Today’s speed (Capitol Nashville), at No. 8. If he maintains his position, Speed will give Urban his first UK Top 10 album.
In the UK, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” (Atlantic) took the lead, pushing 24KGoldn’s “Mood” (Black Butter) with Iann Dior in second place. “Mood” briefly took the lead on the First Look chart, which captures sales and streaming activity from the first 48 hours of the chart cycle.
The official UK singles and albums charts were released last Friday local time.
