It’s a good week for fans of Harry Styles as Harry Styles by Harry Styles has topped the album chart on its first week of release.
The album shifted nearly 57,000 copies across streaming, downloads and physical sales.
It comes a month after the album’s lead single, Sign of the Times, ended Ed Sheeran’s chart reign.
This week’s other highest new entries by Paramore and Paul Weller debuted at number four and five respectively.
Harry becomes the second One Direction member to land at Number 1 solo album, following Zayn’s Mind Of Mine last April (Louis, Liam and Niall have yet to release albums).

Bieber also remains at number two with his DJ Khaled collaboration I’m The One, while Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson’s Symphony stays at number three.
