Drake clinches this week’s Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart with Certified Lover Boy, following a close battle with Iron Maiden’s 17th studio album Senjutsu.

Certified Lover Boy finishes with 46,000 chart sales, overtaking at the final whistle by just 1,200 units; with the album only available digitally, Drake’s total includes 96% on streaming. Across the album’s 21 tracks, fans in the UK racked up 70.4 million streams.

CLB marks Drake’s fourth Number 1 album in the UK, following Views (2016), Scorpion (2018), and Dark Lane Demo Tapes (2020).

Meanwhile, London rapper Little Simz claims her first Top 5, and indeed Top 40 album with Sometimes I Might Be Introvert, which debuts at Number 4 and is the biggest-selling album in independent record shops this week. Close behind at Number 5 is ABBA’s Gold: Greatest Hits album, which lifts seven places following their comeback announcement and is at its highest position since August 2008.

Imagine Dragons bow at Number 7 with Mercury – Act 1, their fifth Top 10 album, and North East rockers The Wildhearts finish at Number 9 with 21st Century Love Songs, their second Top 10 collection.

Drum & bass group Rudimental return to the Official Chart with their fourth album Ground Control at Number 16, their fourth Top 20, while Tom Grennan’s chart-topping second album Evering Road returns to the Top 20 thanks to a new Special Edition featuring five new songs.

Finally, Lady Gaga’s Chromatica re-enters at Number 34 following the release of its new remix album titled Dawn of Chromatica, which itself bows at 56.
