HITS Daily Double


Harry Styles Harry’s House is the hottest property on the U.K.’s Official Charts. The Columbia superstar’s third solo album is the fastest-selling record of 2022, the top vinyl seller of the week and home to the week’s top three singles.

It's the biggest first week since Adele’s 30 (Columbia).

Harry’s House, Styles’ second U.K. #1, doubles his previous personal best with more than 113k in chart sales. His debut, Harry Styles, which is #29 this week, managed just under 57k in chart sales its first week; his second album, Fine Line, which registered 49k, is #8 on this week’s Official Albums Chart.

On the vinyl list, Harry’s House outsold the rest of the Vinyl Top 40 combined.

Meanwhile, at singles, Styles’ “As It Was” becomes the longest-running #1 of the year, topping the chart for the eighth consecutive week on 80k in chart sales. This is the song's most successful week on the chart since its first. It was streamed 8.9m times, putting it ahead of Styles' “Late Night Talking,” at #2, and “Music for a Sushi Restaurant,” #3.

Styles is the first artist of 2022 to land a chart double—#1 at albums and singles. Ed Sheeran, Adele and Olivia Rodrigo did so last year.

Back at albums, Everything Everything secures its third Top 5, with Raw Data Feel (Infinity Industries) at #4. The debut from U.K. trap-wave rapper M Huncho, Chasing Euphoria (Island), drops in at #5, and the 2011 Greatest Hits collection (Around the World/Island) from the recently reunited N-Dubz rises 28 slots to a new peak of #10. (N-Dubz’s comeback single, “Charmer” [Xploded], enters at #32.)

xPropaganda’s debut collective album, The Heart Is Strange (ZTT), is #11, and the special, 40th anniversary edition of The Clash’s Combat Rock (Sony Music CG) calls in at #20.

On the singles chart, Tion Wayne & La Roux are up eight to #8 with “IFTK” (GDS/Atlantic). Camila Cabello and Ed Sheeran’s “Bam Bam” (Epic) returns to the Top 10 at #9.
