Dave scores biggest opening week of 2021 as 'We’re All Alone In This Together' album debuts at Number 1

Dave scores a huge Number 1 debut with We’re All Alone In This Together, claiming the biggest opening week of 2021 on the Official Albums Chart.

The rapper’s second album opens with 74,000 chart sales – far surpassing previous holder Olivia Rodrigo, whose debut album Sour picked up 51,000 chart sales in its first week in June. It’s also the biggest opening week since November 2019, when Coldplay’s Everyday Life opened on 81,000.

Among hip-hop/rap albums, WAAITT claims the biggest opening week in over a decade, since Tinie Tempah’s debut Disc-Overy in October 2010.

56% of Dave’s figure comes from physical (vinyl, CD, cassette) and downloads, while 44% is from streams, racking up 38.5 million plays across the album’s 12 tracks.

WAAITT is Dave’s second Number 1 album, following his 2019 debut Psychodrama, which picked up 26,000 chart sales in its opening week and re-enters this week’s chart at Number 40. View Dave’s Official Chart history so far here.
