Jess Glynne has scored her second number one album in the UK with her sophomore release, Always In Between.
Knocking the A Star Is Born soundtrack off the top spot, Jess shot straight to number one notching up 36,500 combined sales. According to OfficialCharts.com, around 67% of the album’s total figures were made up of physical sales, no doubt helped by the celebratory HMV signings held earlier in the week.
Always In Between is the first album by a British female to reach number one this year, an incredible feat considering the dominance of The Greatest Showman soundtrack, which has held the top spot for 21 weeks during 2018. Only eleven other albums, including Jess’ sophomore release, have managed to reach number one in the UK this year.
The album includes the lead single ‘I’ll Be There’, ‘All I Am’, ‘Thursday’, and ‘These Days’, her gargantuan collaboration with Rudimental, Macklemore and Dan Caplen.
Jess’s debut album, I Cry When I Laugh, also entered at number one upon release back in 2015. The album, which has since been certified triple platinum in the UK, includes a string of incredible hits such as ‘Hold My Hand’, ‘Real Love’, ‘Take Me Home’, ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’, and ‘Right Here’.
