Jay-Z scores his first No. 1 UK album with 'Magna Carta Holy Grail'

Jay-Z’s ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ is the twelfth studio album from the New York rapper and is his first to have reached No. 1 in the UK album chart.

‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ comfortably outsold its competitors at the time of the mid-week charts and has retained the top spot to be named the No. 1 album in the UK.

Mumford & Son’s ‘Babel’, last week’s top selling album, has fallen 4 places to No. 5. Michael Buble’s ‘To Be Loved’ has also gone down but by two places to sit at No. 4.

Passenger’s ‘All The Little Lights’ has climbed four places to No. 3 to spend it’s eleventh week in the chart.

Rod Stewart’s former No. 1 album has risen three places to reach No. 2 in this week’s album chart.
