Fontaines D.C. Blast to No. 1 In U.K. With ‘Skinty Fia’ – Billboard

Fontaines D.C. are flying high on the U.K. Albums Chart with Skinty Fia (via Partisan), the Dublin rockers’ first No. 1.

Skinty Fia roars to the top of the Official U.K. Albums Chart by outselling its nearest rival by two-to-one, with physical sales accounting for 87% of its total, the OCC reports.

The Irishmen — Carlos O’Connell, Conor Curley, Conor Deegan III, Grian Chatten and Tom Coll — have landed Top 10 slots for each of their three albums, with 2019’s Dogrel peaking at No. 9 and 2020 LP A Hero’s Death reaching No. 2.

Little Mix’s career retrospective Between Us (RCA) rises 5-3, for a new peak, coinciding with the girl group’s Confetti Tour of the U.K. Between Us is said to be the band’s final releases before its remaining members, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards take an indefinite hiatus and pursue solo careers.
