Lana Del Rey is the latest artist to achieve six Number 1 albums in the UK.
With her ninth album, the self-analytical and hyper-personal Did you know that there's a tunnel under Ocean Blvd debuting at Number 1 today (March 31), Lana joins the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead and Pink Floyd in the hallowed halls of artists who have half a dozen chart-topping studio records.
Did You Know...joins her previous UK chart-toppers Born to Die (2012), Ultraviolence (2014), Lust for Life (2017), Norman F*cking Rockwell! (2019) and Chemtrails Over the Country Club (2021).
Lana now also ranks as the female solo artist with the fifth-most Number 1 albums in the UK. Only Madonna (12), Taylor Swift (9), Kylie Minogue (8) and Barbra Streisand (7) have more. See the full list here.Explore Lana’s extensive Official Charts history to date here.
