Drake’s latest album Scorpion dropped this Friday and is currently being streamed 10 million times an hour! So we’re sure to see this dominate both the album charts and the singles chart in the coming weeks. But who’s doing numbers this week? Let’s go straight in and check out which of our favourite artists have been breaking new ground on the charts.
Headie One’s mixtape The One Two is has undoubtedly stolen the show in this week’s charts; debuting at number 32. Sequel to The One which dropped earlier this year; The One Two comes complete with a heavyweight line up of features with the likes of Yxng Bane, K-Trap and RV joining him behind the mic, it’s therefore little surprise that the project has been such an immediate success. The first video from the project, “Broni” was featured exclusively on our channel and has already amassed over half a million views in just over a week. Catch the visuals yourself right here if you haven’t already.
Jorja Smith’s debut album Lost and Found is still doing great after debuting at number three, the album still finds itself inside the top 20, hanging onto the number 20 spot. Unsurprisingly, after the tragic events XXXtentacion’s album ? jumped to number four, with the posthumous release of the official video for “Sad” we’re sure to see a lot more of the rapper in the charts over the coming weeks.
EO’s “German” remains the highest placing of a UK artist on this week’s singles chart, still firmly holding onto the number 15 spot. We caught up with the rising star in an exclusive interview this week, to find out what he has in store for us next-Check out the GRM Exclusive interview right here.
Skeppy and A$AP Rocky are just a few spots below at number 19 with the Skepta produced “Praise the Lord”. It’s been well over a year since Skepta treated us to a full length project, although he dropped his Vicious EP last year we’re still longing for an actual follow up to his Mercury prize award winning Konnichiwa.
The summer banger from AJ Tracey and Not3s “Butterflies” has slipped to number 21 but is certainly still shutting down raves and BBQs across the country, and is most certainly going to be doing bits in Ibiza this year. Not3s recently jumped on another wavey collaboration with Avelino on “Boasy” – be sure to catch more summer vibes right here if you missed it.
Despite a lengthy hiatus from music Dappy has proven that he still knows how to make a hit. His joint venture with AY Em “Oh My” has climbed three places since last week, and is now just outside the top 30 at number 31.
Ramz dropped slightly from last week but still remaining inside the top 40 with “Family Tree” now at number 38. You can catch Ramz and GRM Daily next weekend at Wireless! Be sure to tune in next week for the latest in chart updates right here on GRM Daily.
