Michael Bublé’s UK fans are showing him some mad adoration. His new album Love, debuted atop the UK Albums Chart, per an Official Charts Company report. The “Home” singer-songwriter edged out Mumford & Sons new release, Delta, which settled in under Love at No. 2.
Bublé’s album reportedly amassed 66, 794 combined sales in its opening week to claim the coveted No. 1 chart ranking. Bublé has previously topped the UK chart three times. His sixth studio album Crazy Love topped the chart in 2009. His renowned holiday collection Christmas topped the chart in 2011 and his eighth studio album To Be Loved hit the chart summit in 2013.
Bublé recently promoted the album in the UK by performing its lead single “When I Fall in Love” during a live results show on “The X Factor UK.” He also announced an extensive 2019 tour of the UK and Europe to support the album, which includes a three-night run at The O2 in London, England on May 30 (Tickets), May 31 (Tickets) and June 1 (Tickets).
Mumford & Sons slid into the second place slot on the UK Albums Chart with their fourth studio album, Delta, which dropped the same day as Bublé’s album (Nov. 16). Per OCC, the British folk rockers earned 5,500 fewer sales than the Canadian crooner’s love-themed album. Meanwhile, British female pop group Little Mix claimed the No. 3 chart position with their highly-anticipated new album LM5. The former “X Factor UK” champs’ album moved 56,840 units in combined sales.
Two soundtrack albums notably round out the UK Albums Chart Top 5, with The Greatest Showman having a notch up on Bohemian Rhapsody – OST by Queen. The former album is at No. 4 and the latter is at No. 5 on the ranking. Another wildly popular soundtrack, A Star Is Born featuring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, is within the Top 10, falling down two notches from No. 6 last week to No. 8.
Bublé’s latest chart-topping album boasts widespread appeal for hopeless romantics. The tracks are covers of classic love songs like “When I Fall in Love,” “I Only Have Eyes for You,” and “My Funny Valentine.”
Two original songs are on the album. Bublé co-wrote “Forever Now” with Alan Chang, Ryan Leman and Tom Jackson. “Love You Anymore” is the album’s second single, which was co-written by Charlie Puth, Ilsey Juber, Johan Carlsson and Scott Harris.
