Ariana Grande scores a record-breaking week with Thank U, Next

Ariana Grande dominates this week’s Official Singles and Albums Charts as her new album Thank U, Next debuts at Number 1 with huge streaming numbers.

Ariana’s latest album becomes her third to debut at the top of the chart, following Dangerous Woman (2016) and Sweetener (2018). Thank U, Next is the star’s biggest opening week for an album to date at 65,000 combined sales, including 59 million streams across its 12 tracks.

On the Official Singles Chart, Ariana lands her fifth Number 1 with Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored (85,000 combined sales), knocking her previous single 7 Rings down to Number 2.

Another track from the album, Needy, also debuts in this week’s Top 10 at Number 8. It makes Ariana the first female artist since Ruby Murray in March 1955 to have three Top 10 singles as a lead artist in the same week.

Aside from Ariana, Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved makes big gains in this week’s Top 10, leaping six places to a new peak at Number 3. Another Lewis single, Grace, vaults 14 spots to Number 26.

Khalid & Disclosure’s brand-new track Talk opens at 16, earning the US singer-songwriter his tenth Top 40 single and Disclosure their sixth and first in almost four years.

AJ Tracey’s Psych Out rebounds back into the Top 40 and reaches a new peak at Number 18 following the release of his new album, and Tom Walker lands his second Top 40 single with Just You And I, up 39 rungs to Number 30.

Three more songs make their Top 40 debut: Who Do You Love? By The Chainsmokers ft. 5 Seconds Of Summer (34), Breathe by Camelphat & Christoph ft. Jem Cooke (37), and viral hit Thotiana by US rapper Blueface (40).

Finally, following his tragic death last week, London rapper Cadet re-enters the Top 40 at 36 with his Deno Driz collaboration, Advice.
