The latest iteration of the Official UK Album Chart has been unveiled and brings with it the news that Drake has debuted at #1 with ‘CLB.’
Launching with 46,000 chart sales, 96% of that sum was fueled by streaming. Indeed, UK plays of the album’s 21 tracks drummed up 70.4 million streams.
The project serves as Drake’s fourth #1 on the coveted count, following ‘Views’ (2016), ‘Scorpion’ (2018), and ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’ (2020).
Over on the Official UK Singles tally, Aubrey occupies three spots in the top 5: ‘Girls Want Girls (ft. Lil Baby)’ at #2, ‘Fair Trade (ft. Travis Scott)’ at #3, and ‘Champagne Poetry’ at #5.
The chart touchdown comes ahead of Drake’s rumored appearance at the 2021 Wireless Festival in London this weekend.
