Lewis Capaldi sets the US chart on fire as he leaves the combined top-20 in the chart behind in number of record sales.
The new Lewis Capaldi album, “Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent,” has already outsold the top 20 albums on the Official Albums Chart combined and is on track to top the list.
The Scottish singer-songwriter’s second full-length LP, the album was released last Friday (19th May). Less than a week after its release, the album has already surpassed 68,000 chart sales and is quickly approaching the top of the charts.
Ed Sheeran now holds the top spot with his album “-” (also known as “Subtract”), which was published on May 5 and was recognised as the year’s fastest-selling album.
Prior to the release of “Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent,” the singles “Forget Me,” “Pointless,” and “Wish You The Best” all peaked at Number One on the Official UK charts.
Now that the complete album has been released, it is anticipated that it will surpass Capaldi’s debut album, “Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent,” which featured the song with the highest streaming volume in Official Chart history, “Someone You Loved.”
Other recent releases making waves on the albums chart are Sleep Token’s third album, “Take Me Back To Eden,” and the mysterious English rock band Def Leppard’s third album, “Drastic Symphonies,” which was created in partnership with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Paul Simon and the English prog band Yes, with their respective albums “Seven Psalms” (9) and “Mirror To The Sky” (6), could round out this week’s new Top 10 entrants.
Following the news that The Smiths bassist Andy Rourke passed away on Friday (May 19), Billboard said that the compilation album “The Sound Of The Smiths” is also anticipated to return to the charts.
