Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Suck It And See’ knocks Lady Gaga off chart peak

Plus Example scores his first-ever chart-topping single

Arctic Monkeys have gone straight to Number One with their new album ‘Suck It And See’ tonight (June 21).

Alex Turner and co, who played two homecoming gigs in Sheffield earlier this weekend (10 and 11), knocked Lady Gaga‘s ‘Born This Way’ from the top spot to notch up their fourth consecutive Number One album.

They made chart history in the process, becoming only the second band ever to take four consecutive albums – all studio LPs – straight to the summit. The other was Keane, who have taken three studio albums and an EP, 2009’s ‘Night Train’, straight to Number One in the albums chart.


There were three new entries in the Top 10 – America’s Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho at Number 4 with ‘Dream With Me’, Glee Cast‘s ‘Glee The Music Volume 6’ at Number 6 and girl-band Wonderland‘s self-titled debut at Number 8.

In the singles chart, Example scored his first-ever Number One with ‘Changed The Way You Kiss Me’ after shifting more than 115,000 copies in a week, according to the Official Charts Company.

Coldplay‘s new single ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’ debuted at Number 6, while Paramore‘s ‘Monster’ went in at Number 21.

Further down the chart, Katy B‘s latest single ‘Easy Please’ went in at Number 25, while Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts‘ debut solo single ‘Beat Of My Drum’ was straight in at Number 27.
