Liam Gallagher has responded to news that he has reached number one in the UK with his debut solo album ‘As You Were’. The former Oasis frontman released his first solo LP last week (October 6). It’s Gallagher’s first musical output since Beady Eye‘s ‘BE’ in 2013.
The Official Charts Company reports that Gallagher has topped this week’s UK Albums Chart with combined sales of 103,000, 91% of which coming through physical purchases and digital downloads. ‘As You Were’ was also the most streamed album of the week.
It makes Liam’s solo debut the third fastest-selling of 2017 behind Ed Sheeran’s ‘÷’ and Rag’n’Bone Man’s ‘Human’.
Reacting to the news online, Liam took to Twitter to congratulate fans, as well as himself, for “making it happen”.
“It’s official,” he said. “Rock n Roll is No1”.
