Harry Styles dominates UK charts with new album Harry’s House | Harry Styles

Harry Styles has dominated the UK charts with the release of Harry’s House, the fastest-selling album of 2022 so far.

Harry’s House reached No 1 with 113,000 copies sold – a number derived from streams, downloads and physical sales – and with Styles outselling the rest of the Top 40 combined in the vinyl chart. His previous album Fine Line returns to the overall album chart at No 8, and his self-titled debut is at No 29.

Lead single As It Was remains at No 1 in the singles chart, notching up an eighth week to make it the longest-running chart-topper of the year. The Top 3 is rounded out with two other Styles songs: Late Night Talking and Music for a Sushi Restaurant. Only Justin Bieber (in 2016) and Ed Sheeran (in 2017) have achieved such a sweep before.

As It Was is still growing in popularity, now notching up its highest chart sales since its debut week.

Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar are second and third in the album chart, with new entries by Everything Everything and M Huncho completing the Top 5.

Elsewhere in the singles chart, British singer-songwriter Cat Burns gets an 11th week in the Top 10 with her ballad Go – originally released in July 2020, it is the year’s slow-burn success story. Appearing in the Top 10 for the first time in 12 years is La Roux, who features on rapper Tion Wayne’s track IFTK singing the chorus from her 2009 hit In for the Kill.
