Drill rapper Headie One has reached number one with his debut album Edna, named after his late mother.
The 26-year-old’s record has reached the top of the UK Albums Chart, achieving 25.5 million streams in total, according to the Official Charts Company.
The album is dedicated to and named after Headie One’s late mother, and references his time in prison after being sentenced to six months in January for carrying a knife.
Three of the songs from Edna have also entered the UK Singles Chart top 40, with Ain’t It Different (featuring Stormzy and AJ Tracey) achieving the highest position at number two.
Meanwhile, Princess Cuts appears at number 11, while Parlez-Vous Anglais settles for number 24 on the chart.
British hip hop continues to dominate with the rap collective D-Block Europe hitting number two on the chart with their debut release The Blue Print – Us vs Them. Their track Density has also entered the singles chart at number 34.
John Lennon’s Gimme Some Truth, a new collection compiled by his widow Yoko Ono and their son Sean Ono Lennon has entered the chart at number three. It features reworkings of some of his greatest hits, and coincides with what would have been The Beatles singer’s 80th birthday.
Pop Smoke’s posthumous effort Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon, is at number four, after previously topping the charts back in September.
Finishing off the top five is Scottish rock brand Travis, with their newest record 10 Songs.
And last week’s number one record, Queen and Adam Lambert’s Live Around The World, has slipped five places to number six.
Over on the singles chart, 24kGoldn and Iann Dior are both enjoying a fourth week at number one with their collaborative effort Mood.
