The record opens with just over 34,000 chart sales to claim the top spot. 54% of his opening week total came from physical (CD, vinyl, cassette) sales, and is this week’s best-seller on vinyl, while the album’s 16 tracks notched up a total 20.9 million streams.
All Over The Place’s Number 1 entry betters the Number 2 peak of KSI’s 2020 debut Dissimulation, and arrives after four Top 3 singles from the album: Really Love (3), Don’t Play (2), Patience (3), and Holiday (2). View KSI’s Official Chart history in full here.
Celebrating the news, KSI told OfficialCharts.com:
“Your boy did it! Finally got it, a Number 1 album – mad! Thank you to everyone who has supported, I wouldn’t have this without you. I’ve been doing music for so long and to finally get this is crazy. Official Charts Company. Number 1. I never thought I’d ever get one of these. I have no right – I’m a YouTuber! Thank you.”
KSI will celebrate his Number 1 album at a one-off free gig today, taking place at 4pm in London. Tickets are available on a first come first served basis at Camden Assembly from 2pm. The show is brought to fans by The National Lottery and charity Music Venue Trust in a unique initiative to help revive the UK’s live music sector, with 300 live performances set to take place over the summer.
