Lewis Capaldi returns to Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart

Plus, Lighthouse Family make a Top 5 debut with comeback album Blue Sky In Your Head.

Lewis Capaldi returns to the top of the Official Albums Chart this week as his debut album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, logs a sixth non-consecutive week at Number 1.

Following his biggest ever headline show at Kew Gardens on July 10, Lewis knocks last week’s chart-topper Kylie Minogue’s Step Back In Time: The Definitive Collection down to Number 2.

The week’s highest new entry comes from Lighthouse Family with Blue Sky In Your Head at Number 3. It’s the duo’s first studio album in 18 years, since 2001’s Whatever Gets You Through The Day reached Number 7.

The Killers continue to enjoy post-Glastonbury success with their collection Direct Hits reaching a new peak at Number 5. Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody OST rebounds six places into the Top 10, landing at Number 7.

Meanwhile, Spice Girls’ Greatest Hits album is back in the chart at Number 15, thanks to a release on picture disc vinyl, and best of album 1 by The Beatles climbs five places to Number 21, boosted by the recent cinematic release of Yesterday.

Finally, UK Rapper Jay1’s brand new EP One Wave debuts at Number 28, and three records return to the Top 40: Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys lifts 13 places to 31 following the release of new single Goodbyes, Eminem’s Curtain Call – The Hits climbs six to 36, and Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours hops four to 37 to claim a 178th week in the Top 40.

only no.1 due to streaming as Kylie still has the biggest seller




The longevity for Lewis' album has really impressed me, even with his performance at Kew Gardens this past week!
We all knew who's coming for #1 next week though... :P

It's too bad. Sheeran's album is like a quickie "let's see how many artists we can toss on a disc". Love the Cabelo track, until Cardi B rolls in with her typical boast of how hot a part of her body is. Seems like Ed needed a few bucks.




I personally really like it!
Ed could've easily gone down the uptempo or ballad pop route throughout this new album of his, but outside of 'I Don't Care' & 'Best Part Of Me', he mostly didn't. Along with going back to his earlier rap & grime influences, he's also trying a lot of genres like rock & even hints of Latin or EDM, so I really respect him for that.
His content also seems a lot more personal this time around; it's what he wants to write, not what he needs to write to get the sales nor streaming records (even if he might anyway simply based on name recognition alone).
I do agree that 'South Of The Border' is a really good & actually my favourite from the album! Like you, I would've preferred it without Cardi B, but she's done worse verses on a pop song.
