It’s a British hip-hop 1-2 on the latest U.K. albums tally as 21 Savage bows at No. 2 with American Dream (Epic/Slaughter Gang), for his best solo chart position yet.

Born Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph in London, now based in Atlanta, Savage previously led the chart with the 2022 collaborative LP with Drake, Her Loss, and enjoyed a top 10 appearance for 2020’s Savage Mode II with Metro Boomin, peaking at No. 10. Among his solo works, Savage enjoyed a U.K. top 40 with 2021’s i am > i was, peaking at No. 33. Three tracks from American Dream crash the current U.K. singles chart, led by “redrum” at No. 11.

Completing an all-new top 3 on the albums tally is The Vaccines’ Pick-Up Full of Pink Carnations (Super Easy). The London indie-rock outfit now extends is streak of top 10 albums to six, a run that includes the 2012 chart leader Come Of Age. Pick-Up is the band’s highest chart appearance since 2015’s English Graffiti, which peaked at No. 2.

As Teddy Swims hit single “Lose Control” lifts into the U.K. top 5 for the first time, its parent album climbs to a new peak. I’ve Tried Everything but Therapy (Part 1) (Atlantic) rises 24-21 in its second week on the tally, the OCC reports.

Finally, British singer and songwriter Bill Ryder-Jones earns his first solo top 40 album with Iechyd Da (meaning “good luck” in Welsh), his fifth LP. Released through indie label Domino Recordings, the album is new at No. 30. As a member of The Coral, Ryder-Jones landed a U.K. No. 1 in 2003 with Magic and Medicine.
