It's a banner chart week in the U.K. for Ariana Grande, who debuts at No. 1 with both the Thank U, Next album and its latest single “Break Up With Your Girlfriend I'm Bored” (Republic/Universal).
The album is Grande's third to top the U.K. chart, and records her best opening week with 65,000 combined units. Its 12 tracks received 59 million streams according to the Official Charts Company. Thank U, Next creates new records for most album streams ever by a female artist, and third overall, behind Ed Sheeran's ÷ (Divide) and Drake's Scorpion.
The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) is back up 3-2 as west London rapper A.J. Tracey's self-titled and self-released debut album starts at No. 3. Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody (Virgin/Universal) rebounds again, 6-4, while last week's new entry at No. 1, the Specials' Encore (UMC/Universal), falls to No. 5.
