Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher signs third solo album # 1 with “MTV Unplugged”
After two consecutive weeks at No. 1 in the UK, Lady Gaga’s Chromatica has been pushed out of the limelight, and the race for the top spot on the albums chart hasn’t been close this time around.
Liam Gallagher, originally known as a founding member of the beloved rock band Oasis and now as a soloist, is back at No.1 on the UK album charts with MTV Unplugged (live at Hull Town Hall), his first live collection to lead the charge in the country. The set opens at the top of the list with 21,000 equivalent units, including 10,000 vinyl sales.
The track is his third number 1 on its own, and it follows in the footsteps of his two solo studio recordings, 2017 As you were and last year Why me? Why not.
As a member of Oasis, Gallagher has amassed an impressive eight chart leaders, which ranks fifth among groups in UK history. The group reached the top of the rankings with all of the following outings: Definitely maybe, (What’s the story) Morning Glory ?, Be here now, stand on the shoulder of giants, Pagan chemistry, don’t believe the truth, dig your soul and Time flies … 1994–2009, their only compilation to reach the top.
Looking at the top 10 titles, Gallagher has now landed 16 first place placements in all of his projects. Oasis has barged into the area 11 times, his second group Beady Eye has only done so twice, and now on his own he has entered the area with three outs.
No bachelor was derived from MTV Unplugged (live at Hull Town Hall), and none are likely to be. Live albums are generally not known for producing hits, although it is not impossible for someone to secure a spot on the song charts at some point.
