Following its surprise release last December, Swift’s lockdown LP bowed at No. 1 on the U.K. survey, and is her sixth title to hit the top.

Harry Styles’ Fine Line (Columbia) was one of the U.K.’s most popular albums in 2020, though it has never reached No. 1 on the weekly chart. It’s inching closer to breaking the spell, rising 10-2, a new high, following the release of buzzy new video for “Treat People With Kindness.”
Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (EMI), the U.K.’s biggest album for two years straight, according to the OCC, returns to the Top 10 in its 86th week on the survey. This week, Divinely Uninspired rises 12-6.
Meanwhile, Sydney-based, Los Angeles-based hip-hop artist The Kid LAROI enjoys his first Top 10 as debut mixtape F**k Love (Columbia) lifts 22-10.
The rising, ARIA Award-nominated artist gets a boost from his hit “Without You,” up 26-7 on the national singles chart, a new peak, and his latest track “So Done,” which is new at No. 40.
Over on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, Little Mix wins the race to as “Sweet Melody” (RCA) climbs 9-1 for its first stint at the summit.
It’s the girl group’s fifth U.K. No. 1 single, their first since 2016’s “Shout Out To My Ex” and the first since the departure last month of founding member Jesy Nelson.
“Sweet Melody” outpaces Ed Sheeran’s “Afterglow” (Asylum), up 13-2, and CJ’s “Whoopty” (Equity Distribution), up 14-3, while Justin Bieber bags the week’s highest new entry with “Anyone” (Def Jam). It’s new at No. 4, for the Canadian pop star’s 24th U.K. Top 10 hit.
