Kasabian end Ed Sheeran’s reign at the top of the U.K. album chart

Rockers Kasabian have scored their fifth U.K. number one album.
The group, led by Serge Pizzorno, have ended Ed Sheeran’s two-month reign at the top of the charts with their new release For Crying Out Loud.
Singer and guitarist Pizzorno says, “It’s absolutely incredible to have five number one albums in a row. Thanks to everyone who has supported us.”
Sheeran drops to two and Rag’N’Bone Man’s Human stays put at three on the new chart, while veteran rockers Blondie land their first top five record in 18 years with Pollinator, which debuts at four.
On the new U.K. singles chart, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s Despacito becomes the first foreign language track to hit the top spot in five years.
The Spanish tune, which features Justin Bieber, is also Fonsi’s first U.K. number one.
He told Official Charts, “It’s amazing, I’m honoured. It’s my first number one in the U.K. so it’s definitely a special one… I released the original song earlier this year and it’s slowly found its way to the top of the charts around the world. I’m so happy this song has connected with people even if they don’t necessarily understand the lyrics. It’s great to see people enjoying the vibe and feel of it.”
Bieber also features on DJ Khaled’s new track I’m The One, which slips a spot to two.
