Stormzy bags two number ones in this weeks charts

A big congrats to Stormzy who's single and album rose to number 1 in this week's charts

Stormzy's Heavy Is The Head reached number 1 in the official UK charts this week, while his single from the album 'Own It' held the singles top spot for a second week.

It’s been a busy week for Stormzy: he got into a Twitter spat with fellow grime artist Wiley, travelled across the UK signing copies of Heavy is the Head, and turned heads with his slippers on BBC News.

Pulling off the Official Chart double is no mean feat - 2019 saw just two acts manage it: Ariana Grande with Thank U, Next (who performed here last year) and 7 Rings/Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored (singles), and Ed Sheeran with No.6 Collaborations Project and Beautiful People (single).

Heavy Is The Head debuted at Number 2 in its first week of release last month and now matches the peak of his chart-topping debut Gang Signs & Prayer.

You can catch him here in Sheffield, Set to be one of the most highly anticipated tours of 2020, Stormzy has announced a huge 55-date ‘H.I.T.H. World Tour’ which will see the star perform here at Fly DSA Arena, Sheffield on Wednesday the 16th of September 2020.
