Plus there are big new entries for Pop Smoke and John Mayer on this week's Official Albums Chart.

The record opens with just over 34,000 chart sales to claim the top spot. 54% of his opening week total came from physical (CD, vinyl, cassette) sales, and is this week's best-seller on vinyl, while the album’s 16 tracks notched up a total 20.9 million streams.

Celebrating the news, KSI told OfficialCharts.com: “Your boy did it! Finally got it, a Number 1 album - mad! Thank you to everyone who has supported, I wouldn’t have this without you. I’ve been doing music for so long and to finally get this is crazy. Official Charts Company. Number 1. I never thought I’d ever get one of these. I have no right – I’m a YouTuber! Thank you.”
