Sir Paul McCartney crowned most successful act in UK albums chart history

Beatles icon Sir Paul McCartney has been named the most successful albums artist in British chart history

The Official Charts Company revealed data today that shows McCartney has enjoyed a total of 22 chart-topping albums over almost six decades (The Beatles, as a solo artist, with the band Wings, and in collaboration with ex-wife Linda), more than any other musical act. 

He accepted the award from the Official Charts Company in a video, in which he shared his gratitude:

"Okay, you know how it really feels? It feels unbelievable, because when you write your songs you don't count how well they're doing. I remember when Please Please Me [the Beatles’ 1963 debut album] went to Number 1, that was our first Number 1 record, and it’s a beautiful feeling to suddenly get this [award], I mean it's amazing.”
