This week Zayn, landed the prestigious Number 1 on this week’s Albums Chart with his solo debut, holding off Adele.
‘Mind Of Mine’ takes the top spot on this week’s tally, finishing just over 4,000 combined sales ahead of his closest rival, Adele’s ’25’, which is knocked down to second place.
Zayn said: “I want to thank all the fans and my team at RCA and First Access Entertainment for everything they have done to help me start my journey as a solo artist”.
“It really is the beginning. I can’t believe that I have managed to achieve this as a solo artist. I am very proud coming from Bradford achieving this in my home country”.
He added to the official charts: “It’s mind-blowing to me. I don’t take the support I have received for granted. My life at 23 could have been very different.”
Anticipation for Zayn’s first album has been high since leaving One Direction a year ago.
The record’s lead single Pillowtalk landed straight in at Number 1 on the Singles Chart in February.
