She’s working late, ‘cause she’s a record breaker!  

Sabrina Carpenter today becomes the youngest female artist in Official Chart history to hold the Number 1 and Number 2 spots on the Official Singles Chart in the same week, with Please Please Please and Espresso respectively. 

Having recently enjoyed a five-week stint at the summit with Espresso, Sabrina’s latest single Please Please Please lifts two this week, becoming her second chart-topper in less than two months. 

Aged 25 years, 1 month and 10 days, Sabrina surpasses a record previously held by Ariana Grande. Grande was 25 years, 7 months and 20 days old when she achieved the same feat in February 2019, with 7 rings and break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored occupying Numbers 1 and 2 respectively. 

Please Please Please is also the UK’s most-streamed song this week, totalling 9.8 million combined streams. Espresso comes in second here, with 8.1 million.
