Ava Max’s ‘Heaven & Hell’ Leads Action-Packed Midweek U.K. Chart

Ava Max’s debut album Heaven & Hell (Atlantic) blasts into an early lead in what’s shaping as a classic U.K. chart race.

Heaven & Hell leads an action-packed midweek chart, ahead of Live At The Roundhouse (Sony Music CG), the 2019 live recording from Saucerful of Secrets, the prog-rock supergroup of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason.

The top five is bunched tight at the halfway point.

According to the Official Charts Company, just 1,700 chart sales separate Heaven & Hell from the fifth ranked album, Potter Payper’s Training Day 3 (2020 Potter Payper).

Also cracking the lead pack, at No. 3, is Yusuf / Cat Stevens’s Tea For The Tillerman 2 (UMC), a rerecording of the veteran singer-songwriter’s 1970 set which originally peaked at No. 20.

Also, hip-hop outfit Run The Jewels reenter at No. 4 with RTJ4 (BMG) following its release on physical formats, while Alicia Keys’ latest effort Alicia (RCA) starts at No. 7 on the chart blast, one place ahead of Australian country star Keith Urban’s The Speed of Now (Capitol Nashville), at No. 8. If it holds its position, Speed will give Urban his first U.K. Top 10 album.

Over in the U.K. singles chart race, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” (Atlantic) regains the lead, pushing 24KGoldn’s “Mood” (Black Butter) featuring Iann Dior into second place. “Mood” briefly took the lead on the First Look chart, which captures sales and streaming activity from the first 48 hours in the chart cycle.

The Official U.K. Singles and Albums Charts are published last Friday, local time.
