Plus Wolf Alice see their LP sales soar after Mercury Music Prize victory
His latest album ‘Kamikaze’ has now spent four weeks in the top spot. Despite the French star, whose real name is Héloïse Letissier, being on course for number one in the midweek charts, her second LP ‘Chris’ eventually came in at number three behind The Greatest Showman soundtrack, reports the Official Charts Company.

In a five-star review, NME said: “On the evidence of ‘Chris’ – a deft and bogglingly-intelligent record, which somehow sounds blissfully effortless too – she’s earned her own place in the pop icon history books.”
The band also landed their first ever official singles chart entry with ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’, which went in at 100.
Elsewhere, Slash‘s new album ‘Living The Dream’ is a new entry at number four, while Suede’s new LP ‘The Blue Hour’ is in at five.
The week’s highest new entry is the posthumous collaboration between Lil Peep and XXXTentacion, ‘Falling Down’, which entered the charts at number 10. Co-written by ILoveMakonnen, the track features a verse by XXXTentacion’s which was recorded after Lil Peep’s death as a tribute, only for XXXTentacion himself to pass away months later.
