Ellie Goulding scored the coveted Official Chart Double for the first time in her career today. The singer tops both the Official Singles and the Official Albums Chart this week, securing a second week at Number 1 with Calvin Harris collaboration “Miracle,” while her fifth album, dance opus Higher Than Heaven becomes her fourth chart-topping LP.

Higher Than Heaven joins Ellie’s other Number 1 records, debut Lights (2010), dark pop delight Halcyon (2012) and the introspective Brightest Blue (2020). Her album Delirum also reached Number 3 in 2015.

With this newest chart-topper, Ellie now joins Adele as the British female solo artists with the most Number 1 albums to their name, with four titles apiece. Higher Than Heaven also ends the week as the biggest seller across independent record shops in the UK, topping the Official Record Store Chart.
