Lady Gaga’s Chromatica claims second week at Number 1 as Sports Team take highest new entry

It was an incredibly close battle as indie newcomers Sports Team took on a pop icon.

Chromatica by Lady Gaga holds on to Number 1 for a second week in a photo-finish Official Albums Chart race.

The UK’s fastest-selling album of 2020 so far retains the albums top spot finishing ahead of its closest competitor by less than 600 chart sales.

It means midweek leaders, indie band Sports Team score this week’s highest new entry at Number 2 with their debut album Deep Down Happy. The six-piece do however seize the title of the biggest seller of the week, leading on physical sales as well as having the edge on digital downloads. Sports Team score the best seller of the week across UK independent record shops and Number 1 on the Official Vinyl Chart after shifting 4,300 copies on wax.
