Imagine Dragons’ ‘LOOM’ Debuts as Highest New Entry on U.K. Albums Chart

Imagine Dragons have made a remarkable entry onto the Official U.K. Albums Chart with their latest release, securing the highest new entry of the week. The Nevada rockers’ sixth top 10 album in the U.K., LOOM, debuts at No. 5.

Their latest release continues their streak of chart success, joining the ranks of 2013’s Night Visions (No. 3), 2015’s Smoke & Mirrors (No. 1), 2017’s Evolve (No. 3), 2018’s Origins (No. 9), and 2021’s Mercury – Acts 1 & 2 (No. 7).

However, it’s Taylor Swift who reigns supreme once again, with The Tortured Poets Department enjoying an eighth non-consecutive week at No. 1.

This week, the Official U.K. Charts named The Tortured Poets Department the biggest album of 2024 so far, having already accumulated over 542,000 chart units since its release in April.

Billie Eilish’s HIT ME HARD AND SOFT climbs one spot to No. 2. The Oscar winner’s third studio album has received high praise from fans and critics, securing its place as one of the year’s standout releases.

The album’s success follows her previous chart-toppers, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and Happier Than Ever, both of which reached No. 1 on the U.K. Albums Chart. The impressive feat makes the “Lunch” singer one of the few artists to have their first three albums debut in the top two positions.

Camila Cabello makes a bold statement with her new album C,XOXO, which debuts at No. 20. The album marks her fourth Top 20 entry, following Camila (No. 2), Romance (No. 14), and Familia (No. 9). Her debut solo single “Havana” topped the U.K. Singles Chart in 2017, marking her first solo No. 1 in the U.K.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé’s COWBOY CARTER surges back into the U.K. top 40, leaping 59 places to No. 40 following its vinyl release. Back in April, Beyoncé made history by becoming the first Black artist to take a country album to No. 1 on the UK’s Official Albums Chart.

The milestone also marked her first No. 1 on the UK’s Official Country Albums Chart.
