Harry Styles begins chart assault with debut solo album

Harry Styles begins chart assault with debut solo album

Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber might be sitting pretty at the top of the singles chart after reaching No.1 on Friday, but this week is set to be all about Harry Styles and his self-titled debut. 

And while the One Direction singer is about to make his albums chart bow, lead single Sign Of The Times surges 10-3, posting sales of 12,960. Fonsi and co are at No.1 with Despacito (31,046 sales), with DJ Khaled’s I’m The One at No.2 on 17,888. Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson are at No.4 on 12,814, ahead of Shawn Mendes’ There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back, which rounds out the Top 5 on 11,815 sales. 

Now for that Styles album, which has, unsurprisingly, slipped straight into pole position. On sales of 40,769 (excluding two days’ Spotify streaming data), it’s ahead of Ed Sheeran’s ÷ at No.2 on 16,882 sales.

Then comes something of a bottleneck, with new entries in the shape of Paramore’s After Laughter and Paul Weller’s A Kind Revolution at Nos 3 and 4 with figures of 16,172 and 16,019 respectively. Rag’N’Bone Man’s Human completes the Top 5 on 11,034.
