After 4 weeks, Ariana Grande's domination comes to an abrupt end at the hands of Dave, who dethrones Ariana on both the singles and albums charts. On the albums, his 'PYSCHODRAMA' debuts at #1 as the only ever UK rap album to reach the top, while over on the singles the 11-minute long 'Lesley' debuts at #1. Not only is it by far the longest ever #1, it's the longest track to ever reach my charts, with its 11:08 passing the 10:42 of Ed Sheeran's 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You (captured in The Live Room)'. It's Dave's 3rd #1, after 'Funky Friday' and '18HUNNA'. Dave has a total of 6 Top 10s this week, while 'PSYCHODRAMA' sees all 11 of its tracks chart, making it only the 6th album to chart in its entirety, following 'Camila', 'My Dear Melancholy,', 'beerbongs & bentleys', 'Kamikaze' and 'thank u, next'.

The highest climber of the week also comes from Dave, as his 'Black' climbs 14 places from #25 to just outside of the Top 10 at #11, while Lewis Capaldi's tracks are the highest charting non-Dave or Ariana tracks, with 'Grace' at #12 and 'Someone You Loved' at #13. Ava Max makes a chart return after 'Sweet but Psycho' peaked at #5 as follow-up track 'So Am I' debuts at a very high #14, considering the circumstances. Ariana Grande still has a total of 16 tracks on the chart this week, and when combined with Dave's 12 tracks that makes for 28 tracks between them, or 70% of the chart! There are also a couple of very high-profile dropouts, as both 'She Loves Control' and 'rockstar' drop out - both tracks have spent over a year on the chart, and were 2 of only 3 tracks to manage it. The other is 'Bloodstream', which spends its 96th week on the chart this week!

Thanks for reading everyone! :D

Hey Gameskiller! I hope you're good this weekend. :) I like the impact Dave had your impact this week! While I thought the album was decent to good in general, like you with 'Sucker Punch', 'PSYCHODRAMA' didn't really have much of an effect on my own chart! Interestingly, while Dave has 12 tracks inside your Top 40 right now, it's Ariana who still has the most charting songs with 16. Elsewhere, I'm happy that both of Lewis Capaldi's songs are continuing to do well & that they're set to climb further next week, as well as 'So Am I' being the highest debut not from Dave (that would've been Top 10 without the 'PSYCHODRAMA' impact!). I'll reply to you over on the OCC page shortly! Good chart once again.

Hey Piran! Dave's still set to have a big impact next week - his top songs will likely climb, but his lower down songs will likely fall. A few tracks from 'PSYCHODRAMA' will likely fall out next week, but replacing them will likely be some tracks from his 'Game Over' EP. Ariana managed to get more than Dave since she still has 10 tracks from 'thank u, next' on the chart, and combined with her 3 'Sweetener' tracks, 2 features and 'One Last Time' she still has a stranglehold over much of the chart. Dave only has his 11 'PSYCHODRAMA' tracks, plus '18HUNNA', which hold most of the top but not much further down. Lewis' tracks could very well both be Top 5 hits as Ariana & Dave's tracks fall in the coming weeks, while 'So Am I' could definitely be a Top 10 hit, since it would've been #7 if not for Dave's debuts and climbs. Thanks for the comment! :D

Hey Gameskiller! I found Dave's new album decent with some great highlights in there! I also like the debut for "So Am I" as well! Great chart!

Hey Sergej! I really loved 'PSYCHODRAMA', as is clear from this chart, and for the biggest highlight by far was 'Lesley', it may not be the catchiest song on there, but it has by far the best writing and storytelling, and it really showcases Dave's talent as a lyricist, songwriter and storyteller. 'So Am I' should be climbing over the coming weeks, as it would be been #7 this week if not for the Dave impact! Thanks for the comment! :D
