Post Malone achieves his second consecutive U.K. No. 1 album with Hollywood's Bleeding (Republic/Universal), and there's a third week atop the singles chart for Ed Sheeran's “Take Me Back to London” (Asylum/Warner Music), featuring Stormzy.
Hollywood's Bleeding scores more than double the combined units of Sheeran's No. 6 Collaborations Project, which stays at No. 2. The Official Charts Company reports that 87% of Post Malone's tally came from streaming. His Beerbongs and Bentleys went straight to No. 1 in the U.K. in May 2018.
There's a new entry at No. 3 for 19-year-old Manchester native Aitch's AitcH2O EP (Since 93) as his “Taste (Make It Shake)” climbs again 3-2 on the singles countdown. Taylor Swift's Lover (EMI/Universal) is down 3-4 as Lewis Capaldi's Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, also on EMI, holds at No. 5.
