Liam Gallagher’s ‘MTV Unplugged’ Hits No. 1 on U.K. Albums Chart

Liam Gallagher makes it three for three in U.K. album releases as his MTV Unplugged (Warner Records) goes straight to No. 1. DaBaby’s “Rockstar” (Interscope/Universal), featuring Roddy Ricch, leads the singles chart for a fifth non-consecutive week.

Gallagher previously topped the album survey with both As You Were in 2017 and last year’s Why Me, Why Not? The new MTV release debuts with 21,000 combined units, according to the Official Charts Company, of which almost half, 10,000, are on vinyl. That makes it the U.K.’s fastest-selling vinyl album of the year to date. It’s also the first live album to make No. 1 in the market since George Michael’s Symphonica in 2014.

Lady Gaga’s Chromatica (Interscope/Universal) is down to No. 2 after two weeks on top, as Lewis Capaldi rebounds yet again, 4-3, with Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent (EMI/Universal). Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia (Warner) and Harry StylesFine Line (Columbia/Sony) also jump back, 6-4 and 7-5 respectively. Singer-songwriter Jack Garratt lands a No. 8 start with Love, Death & Dancing (Island/Universal); its predecessor Phase arrived at No. 3 in 2016.

DaBaby’s single finishes the week 12,000 combined units ahead of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s “Rain On Me” (Republic/Interscope/Universal), which is steady at No. 2. “Rover” (Parlophone/Warner) by S1mba featuring DTG stays at No. 3 and “Breaking Me” (Positiva/Universal) by Topic featuring A7S at No. 4.

“Dinner Guest” by A.J. Tracey featuring Mostack (A.J. Tracey) is up again, 6-5, in its seventh chart week. There are top 10 arrivals for Regard & Raye’s “Secrets” (Ministry of Sound), which climbs 12-8, and “Don’t Need Love” (Polydor/Universal) by 220 Kid & Gracey, up 13-10. Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” rises 15-11 and the week’s highest new entry is “Trollz” (Scumgang) by 6ix9ine & Nicki Minaj, at No. 12.
