Stormzy Scores UK Chart Double / Tops Album & Singles Chart

Published: Friday 10th Jan 2020 by Sam

As hot streaks go, Stormzy‘s career is scorching!

The Brit-Ghanian rapper earned his third #1 in the UK last week with the Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy assisted ‘Own It.’ A track which now has the distinct honor of being the country’s first chart-topper of the decade.

Now, a week on, he’s not only retained the top spot – he’s mirrored the win on the album chart.

Full story below…

The latest issue of the tally sees the MC’s sophomore effort ‘Heavy Is The Head’ climb from #2 to #1.

It comes as quite the coup for the project, which opened at #2 during the competitive Christmas tracking week.

In rising to pole position, it matches the peak of Stormzy’s 2017 debut ‘Gang Signs & Prayer,’ while netting him the coveted chart double. A feat just two acts managed over the course of the last year (Ariana Grande and Ed Sheeran).

As for what lit a match under the LP?

Well, beyond the success of ‘Own It’ and ample promotion (see: album signings across the country), Stormzy has been locked in a high-profile beef with Grime pioneer Wiley – with both dropping multiple diss tracks. All of which have racked up millions of views + listens a piece.
