Yungblud lands first Number One album with ‘Weird!’

He's going to melt the award down and make safety pins, which he'll send to 150 fans

Yungblud has secured his first Number One album with his second record ‘Weird!’

‘Weird!’ topped the Official Albums Chart with 39,000 chart sales (91 per cent of its total made up of pure sales) and beating Michael Ball & Alfie Boe’s ‘Together At Christmas’.

The Doncaster rocker’s previous chart peak was with his 2019 EP ‘The Underrated Youth‘, which landed at number six.

Yungblud, whose real name is Dominic Harrison, said he will melt down his award and turn it into safety pins, which he will send out to 150 fans to say thank you for all of their support.

“We went Number 1! What the hell? I just can’t really speak right now, it’s mental,” he told OfficialCharts.com. “I just want to say a massive thank you to each and every one of you who got the album, as always this is ours.

He continued: “To have a Number 1 rock album at Christmas is mental. Up the rock ‘n roll scene, up the punks, I just want to say thank you so much. Yungblud is not me, it is us, this is our award. We are weird! Stay weird, be proud to be weird, be proud to be different, I love each and every one of you.”
