Lana Del Rey scores her third Number 1 with Lust For Life on the Official Albums Chart

Plus there are new entries from Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, Dizzee Rascal and more on this week's Official Albums Chart.

Congratulations to Lana Del Rey, whose new album Lust For Life enters straight in at Number 1 on this week's Official Albums Chart.

The record overtakes mid-week leaders Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott, whose latest release Crooked Calypso settles for second place, to become Lana's third chart-topping album in the UK. Her previous Number 1s are 2012's million-selling Born To Die and 2014's Ultraviolence.

Paul & Jacqui still land their highest charting album to date as a duo (they notched up three Number 1s under their former band The Beautiful South) - 2014's What Have We Become reached Number 3, while Wisdom Laughter and Lines peaked at 4.

Crooked Calypso may have missed out on the top spot overall, but it does finish at Number 1 on this week's Official Vinyl Albums Chart. It was also the most purchased record on cassette, selling just shy of 700 on the format. Lana's Lust For Life is being released on vinyl and cassette later this year.
