Great news to start 2014 with! The Official Charts Company revealed today that having shifted 1.1 MILLION copies in over a year, the RIGHT PLACE RIGHT TIME album was the 5th biggest selling album of last year in their end of year chart, whilst DEAR DARLIN’, Olly’s 3rd huge hit from the album last summer, was the 20th biggest selling single of last year! Meanwhile over in the States TROUBLEMAKER has placed as the 82nd biggest seller of 2013 on Billboard’s End of Year Hot 100! Congratulations Olly from all of us at OM Daily :)
UK charts: 'Dear Darlin' goes TOP 5 and album back in top 10!
Olly’s current single ‘Dear Darlin’ shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon as it’s now climbed into this week’s top 5 on the Official UK charts - it even stopped Union J’s debut single from getting in there! The 'Right Place Right Time’ album has also climbed back into the top 10 at number 9! Congratulations Olly from all of us at OM Daily :)
'In Case You Didn't Know' in top 10 biggest selling albums of 2012 so far!
We’re now halfway through 2012, would you believe, and Olly’s chart topping and triple platinum second album ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ has continued selling healthily ever since it’s release last year in November - so healthily in fact, that the Official UK Charts Company have revealed in the Official Chart of the Year to date today that it has in fact shifted another whopping 209,200 copies placing it at number 9 on the bestselling albums of 2012 in the UK so far!
That means it’s shifted more copies than the likes of Rihanna’s 'Talk That Talk’ and Gary Barlow’s 'Sing’ EP. On the singles front, his third number 1 also from last year, 'Dance With Me Tonight’ is in the top 30 of the 40 biggest selling singles of 2012 so far after its continued success in the earlier part of this year. Here’s hoping album 3 and the singles off that will be joining them in the Chart of 2012 before the year is out!
Olly’s had two big selling number 1 albums this year with continued successful sales for last year’s ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ and great opening sales for 'Right Place Right Time’, and his fourth number 1 single with 'Troublemaker’ - but the question is have they all sold enough to make it onto the Official Chart of the Year?
BBC Radio 1 will countdown the 150 best selling singles of 2012 in the UK from 7am to 7pm on New Year’s Eve so make sure you tune into find out where Olly charts!
