Noah Kahan Nabs U.K. Chart Double With ‘Stick Season’

Noah Kahan scores his first U.K. chart double as “Stick Season” holds at No. 1 on the national singles chart, and his LP of the same name rises to the summit of the albums tally.

It’s taken 36 weeks (including 10 weeks in the top 10) for Stick Season (via Republic Records) to complete its first stint atop the Official U.K. Albums Chart, doing so in a tight finish. Stick Season lifts 3-1.

The collection enjoys a late flurry, thanks to the release of the deluxe edition, Stick Season (Forever), a string of in-store signings, and the buzz around his U.K. arena tour this August.

With his chart feat, Kahan joins some elite company. According to the Official Charts Company, the last artist to swing the U.K. chart double was Taylor Swift, who, in November 2023, simultaneously landed her 11th No. 1 album with 1989 (Taylor’s Version) and third U.K. singles single leader “Is It Over Now? (Taylor’s Version)”.

Coming in at No. 2 on the Official Chart is Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s Vultures 1 (YZY), the most streamed album of the week, the OCC reports. The No. 1 album in the U.S. and Australia this week, Vultures 1 becomes Ty Dolla $ign’s career high and first U.K. top 40 appearance. Kanye has 11 solo U.K. top 40s, including seven top 10s and three No. 1s.

Stick Season and Vultures 1 overpower Declan McKenna’s What Happened to the Beach? (via Columbia), the leader at the midweek point. It’s the best-selling album during the chart cycle, for a No. 3 debut, for the London-born singer and songwriter second top 10 spot, following 2020’s Zeros, which peaked at No. 2.

Also making a splash on the latest tally is Zara Larsson’s Venus (Black Butter/Sommer House), new at No. 15 for the Swedish singer-songwriter’s third U.K. top 40, after 2017’s So Good (No. 7) and 2021’s Poster Girl (No. 11).

And finally, Usher enjoys a post-Super Bowl score as Coming Home (Mega Gamma) lands at No. 24, for his eighth U.K. top 40, while former Mercury Prize winning British rapper Dizzee Rascal is close behind with Don’t Take It Personal (Big Dirte3), new at No. 27. That’s Dizzee Rascal’s eighth top 40.
