KSI is one of the big breakout music stars of 2020, so far landing five Top 40 hits this year alone. View KSI's Official UK Chart history so far here.

His debut album Dissimulation narrowly lost out on a Number 1 debut in April after a close battle with The 1975. A small consolation was that KSI didn't have to shave his head, which he promised to do if the album hit the top spot.
