Katy B scores first Number One album with ‘Little Red’

Temples also break the Top Ten with their debut album 'Sun Structures'

Katy B has scored her first Number One album, after her second LP ‘Little Red’ hit the top of the Official UK Albums Chart today (February 16).

The 24-year-old Peckham singer released her debut album ‘Katy On A Mission’ in 2011 after studying for a degree in Popular Music at Goldsmiths College, University Of London. On ‘Little Red’, Katy B enlisted the help of Guy Chambers and Adele-collaborator Fraser T Smith.

Elsewhere in the Official UK Albums Chart, Kettering psych quartet Temples‘ debut album ‘Sun Structures’ is the second highest new entry, landing at Number Seven. Meanwhile the Top Five is dominated by women as Ellie Goulding’s ‘Halycon’ takes the Number Two spot, followed by London Grammar’s first full-length record, ‘If You Wait’, at Number Three and Beyonce’s self-titled album at Number Four. Avicii completes the Top Five with his ‘True’ album.

Clean Bandit have bagged their fourth week on top of the Official UK Singles Chart with their song ‘Rather Be (ft Jess Glynne)’, beating off competition from ‘Stay The Night’ by Zedd ft Hayley Williams. The Grammy winner and Paramore frontwoman have to settle for the Number Two position this week, knocking Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ into third place.

David Guetta’s Skylar Grey-featuring track ‘Shot Me Down’ is at Number Four while Katy B has yet more reason to celebrate as ‘Crying For No Reason’ crawls up two places to Number Five.
