Lana Del Rey has earned her sixth No. 1 on the U.K. Albums Chart with Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd. The album is the fastest-selling LP of 2023 so far.
Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd is Lana’s ninth studio album.
Born to Die (2012), Ultraviolence (2014), Lust for Life (2017), Norman F*cking Rockwell! (2019) and Chemtrails Over the Country Club (2021) are her previous U.K. chart-toppers.
Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd surpasses the opening week of P!nk‘s recent chart-topper Trustfall for the best first-week sales of an album this year as well as Lana’s strongest first week since Ultraviolence in 2014.
The self-analytical LP also sees Lana tie with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead and Blur on the list of acts with the most U.K. Number 1 records to their name; boasting six apiece.
Lana now also ranks as the female solo artist with the fifth-most No. 1 albums in the U.K. Only Madonna (12), Taylor Swift (9), Kylie Minogue (8) and Barbra Streisand (7) have more.
“The achievement of Lana Del Rey in scoring six Number 1 albums in just 11 years is quite something, especially given she has done so with the biggest first week numbers of any album this year,” said Martin Talbot, Chief Executive, Official Charts Company. He described Lana as “a genuine superstar of our era.”
