Lana Del ReyÃ‚Â has earned her third number one album with the release of Ã¢â‚¬ËœLust For LifeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ last week.
The album, which came out last Friday, overtook competition from Ã¢â‚¬ËœCrooked CalypsoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ by Paul HeatonÃ‚Â and Jacqui Abbott, which held the mid-week lead. Ã¢â‚¬ËœCrooked CalypsoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ holds the number one spot on the Vinyl Album Chart. Ã¢â‚¬ËœLust For LifeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ is not yet out for release on vinyl.
The success of Ã¢â‚¬ËœLust For LifeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ follows LanaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s earlier number one albums, the 2012 debut Ã¢â‚¬ËœBorn To DieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, which sold a million copies, and 2014Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬ËœUltraviolenceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. The new record is the first by Lana to feature guest artists, includingÃ‚Â The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky and Stevie Nicks.
Nine records by the band Linkin ParkÃ‚Â have also entered the official charts, following the tragic death of frontman Chester Bennington last week. Five of the records feature in the official Top 40, with three in the Top 10. Linkin Park are the first band in 50 years to achieve this. The 2000 debut Ã¢â‚¬ËœHybrid TheoryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ has peaked at number four, which is the same position it held when it was first released.

Elsewhere, Dizzee RascalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬ËœRaskitÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ takes the tenth position, his fifth Top 10 album. In the singles chart, Ã¢â‚¬ËœDespacitoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ has entered the number one position on a third occasion, making it one of only five records to do so.
