Olivia Rodrigo takes vampire to Number 1, becomes female artist with most Number 1s this decade
Olivia Rodrigo has drained the blood of the competition to secure her third UK Number 1 single vampire.
The gothic ballad had previously peaked at Number 2 for a straight month, held off by Dave & Central Cee’s record-breaking Sprinter. Today, it performs a rejuvenation Dracula would be proud of, jumping two to the top of the Official Singles Chart.
vampire, the lead single from Olivia's incoming second album GUTS, completes a trilogy of UK Number 1s for the US singer-songwriter, joining drivers license and good 4 u, which both reached the pinnacle in 2021.
Olivia Rodrigo is now officially the female solo artist with the most Number 1 singles this decade so far as a result. See the list of every UK Number 1 single of the past 70 years, from 1952 to now.
