There's an instant No. 1 for Ariana Grande on the Official Charts Company singles chart with “Thank U, Next” (Republic/Universal). Plus, The Prodigy land their seventh chart-topping album in the territory with No Tourists (Take Me To The Hospital/BMG).
Grande topped the U.K. countdown twice in 2014 with “Problem,” featuring Iggy Azalea, and “Bang Bang,” with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj. “Thank U, Next” delivers robust combined units of 73,000, achieved in just six days after its release last Saturday night (Nov. 3). That total included 6.7 million streams, and saw the singer finish some 26,000 combined units ahead of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's “Shallow” (Interscope/Universal), which falls to No. 2 after two weeks at the summit.
