Stormzy has a double victory on the Official Charts Company's U.K. sales charts, rising 2-1 with his Heavy Is The Head album (Merky/Atlantic/Warner) and starting a second week atop the singles countdown with “Own It,” featuring Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy.

The rapper, singer and songwriter's second album takes the album crown from Lewis Capaldi's Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (EMI/Universal), which returned to No. 1 last week and now falls a place. Sheeran's No.6 Collaborations Project climbs again 4-3, its highest ranking for nine weeks, and Harry StylesFine Line (Columbia/Sony) is up 5-4.

Billie Eilish improves 6-5 with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (Republic/Universal). Also on the rebound are two more former No. 1s, Tom Walker's What A Time To Be Alive (Relentless/Sony), 10-8, and Post Malone's Hollywood's Bleeding (Republic/Universal), 14-9.

“Own It” stays at the singles summit as Capaldi's “Before You Go” holds at No. 2, Dua Lipa's “Don't Start Now” (Warner) at No. 3 and Arizona Zervas' “Roxanne” (Sony) at No. 4. The highest new entry of the week is Justin Bieber's “Yummy” (Def Jam/Universal), which bows at No. 5. It's Bieber's eighth U.K. top ten single.
