Ariana Grande has once again proven her dominance in the music world as she secures her fifth UK Number 1 album with her latest release, “eternal sunshine”. The American singer, known for her powerhouse vocals and chart-topping hits, has consistently impressed fans and critics alike with her stellar music releases.

“eternal sunshine” marks Grande’s seventh studio album and showcases her evolution as an artist. Straight out of the gate, the album soared to the top of the Official Albums Chart, solidifying Grande’s status as a force to be reckoned with in the industry. This achievement adds to her impressive track record, with previous chart-topping albums, “Dangerous Woman” from 2016, “Sweetener” from 2018, “thank u, next” from 2019, and “Positions” from 2020.

Notably, “eternal sunshine” also reigns supreme on the UK Official Vinyl Albums Chart, underscoring Grande’s appeal across different formats and mediums. The release of the album also saw three Grande tracks make an impact on the UK Official Singles Chart with “we can’t be friends (wait for your love)” debuting at Number 3, “yes, and?” experiencing a resurgence climbing to Number 6, and disco-infused breakup anthem “bye” makes its debut at Number 13.

Joining Grande in the charts this week is Birmingham-born heavy metal band Judas Priest, whose 19th studio album, “Invincible Shield”, debuts at Number 2. This milestone marks a career-best for the group, led by iconic members Ian Hill, Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Scott Travis, and Richie Faulkner.

New Jersey’s Bleachers also make waves with their fourth studio album, landing at Number 5 on the UK Official Albums Chart. This achievement marks their first-ever entry on the UK album charts, signalling a promising milestone for the band. It was also this week’s most-purchased physical album from UK Independent Record Shops, going on to top the Official Record Store Chart.

Meanwhile, Leicester-born protest singer-songwriter and comedian, Grace Petrie, achieves her highest-charting album to date with “Build Something Better”, landing at Number 28. The success of this album underscores Petrie’s growing influence and relevance in the music scene.

Additionally, pop icons Bananarama make a triumphant return to the charts with their seventh Top 40 album, “Glorious – The Ultimate Collection”, debuting at Number 30. This compilation serves as a testament to the group’s enduring legacy and contribution to pop music since they debuted in 1981.

In a nostalgic turn of events, Kylie Minogue’s 2003 album “Body Language” and Girls Aloud’s 2004 LP “What Will The Neighbours Say?” make a spectacular comeback to the Top 40. Reissued on vinyl to commemorate their anniversaries, these albums remind fans of the timeless appeal and enduring popularity of both artists. They managed to rechart at Number 34 and Number 35, respectively.

As Grande basks in the glory of her latest chart-topping achievement, the music world eagerly awaits what she has in store next, confident that she will continue to captivate audiences with her unparalleled talent and creativity.
