Former Oasis guitarist, Noel Gallagher, has topped the UK album chart with his new album!
His new album ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ has outsold the biggest rival Matt Cardle by more than 40% according to the official charts company. Noel Gallagher’s album was sold 120,000 times meaning Matt Cardle’s album was only sold 75,000 times, clearly not enough to take first position.
The first single from the new album has also made an appearance in the charts. ‘AKA What a life’ jumped from 55 in the singles charts to 24 in only 1 week.
Noel will be exceptionally happy that he’s beaten his brother ‘Liam Gallagher’, whose post-Oasis band peaked at number 3 last year with the album ‘Different gear, still speeding’.
It was bad news for the album ‘Steps’, as both Gallagher and Cardle pushed the album down to 3rd place this week and there was only 1 new introduction into the top 10 albums this week, by ‘Daniel O’Donnel’ who manages to reach his 14th top 10 hit!
Whereas, in the singles charts, Rihanna remained on top for a third week (hardly surprising) and The Wanted have managed to climb up to the number 2 spot with their new single ‘Lightning’!
It looks like a fairly exciting week for the music charts, maybe Rihanna will be number 1 for a 4th week in a row or maybe, someone else will steal her crown?!
