Frank Ocean beats Dolly Parton and David Brent to UK number one…
Frank Ocean’s long-awaited new album has gone to the top of the UK album chart, beating Dolly Parton and Ricky Gervais’s comedy alter-ego David Brent.
The R&B singer’s album Blonde has had combined sales of 32,000, including 26,000 downloads, since being released via iTunes and Apple Music on Saturday.
That put it ahead of Dolly Parton’s 43rd studio album Pure & Simple.
And David Brent’s Life On The Road, the soundtrack for Gervais’s new film of the same name, is at number three.
Canadian rapper Drake is at number four with Views, followed by Bob Marley, whose compilation Legend is a non-mover at number five.
ELO, Christine and the Queens, Adele, Justin Bieber and Coldplay have all shuffled down the top 10 to make space for the three new entries at the top of this week’s chart.
But after two weeks at number one, Stockport pop band Blossoms have plummeted to number 13.
