Olivia Rodrigo Rules U.K. Charts for Second Week With Album ‘Sour’ and Single ‘Good 4 U’

The ‘Drivers License’ hitmaker is unshakable atop the U.K. music countdowns as she dominates the charts for the second week with her debut album and latest single.

AceShowbiz -Pop star Olivia Rodrigo has scored a second week atop both the U.K.’s singles and albums chart.

The actress-turned-singer’s debut project “Sour” becomes the longest-running number one for 2021 to date, after a long spell of one-week chart-toppers.

She holds off competition from Easy Life‘s “Life a Beach“, which is new at two, followed by Texas‘ “Hi” at three.

Meanwhile, Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” holds steady at number one on the singles countdown, keeping “Body” from Tion Wayne & Russ Millions at two, as Doja Cat and SZA round out the new top three with “Kiss Me More”.

It was a record-breaking feat when Olivia Rodrigo first landed “Sour” atop the U.K. Albums chart last week. She became the youngest solo artist ever to land a U.K. number one album and single in the same week.

With 51,000 opening-week sales, she also scored the biggest sales week of 2021 so far and “Sour” is the biggest first week for a debut album since Lewis Capaldi released “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent” in May 2019.

Additionally, the album overtook Capaldi’s release on streaming charts, racking up 45.7 million track streams over the past seven days.

In the U.S. Billboard, the Disney star made history as well as she ruled Hot 100 with “Good 4 U”, just over two months after she dominated the chart for eight weeks with her debut release “Drivers License”.

According to Billboard, the feat makes Rodrigo the first artist with a debut album to boast two number one Hot 100 entries since Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ 2012 project “The Heist”.
