Sales & Streams: Giggs goes top 10 with fifth album ‘Big Bad’ as NSG’ ‘Options’ continues to climb

Giggs Big Bad -- Hollowman’s fifth studio has secured himself another top 10.

Big Bad debuted at #6 on the album charts, while the lead single, ‘187’, entered the single’s charts at #42, with ‘Baby’ sitting at #53. This is the SN1 artist’s third consecutive album to chart inside the top 10, following on from Landlord (2016) and Wamp 2 Dem (2017). 

After spending two straight weeks in the top 10, AJ Tracey’s self-titled debut album slips five places down to #14. D Block Europe’s Home Alone clocks in at #17 and Fredo’s debut album, Third Avenue, falls to #59.


NSG finally cracked the top 10 last week and have jumped up two places to #7 with ‘Options’. Cadet and Deno collaboration on ‘Advice’ climbed up to #14 last week and spends another week inside the top 20 at #18 this week. Sitting a place below ‘Advice’ is ‘Kitchen Kings’ from D Block Europe, another single enjoying its second straight week inside the top 20. ‘Running Man’ ranks in the top 100 at #90.

Swarmz’ hit ‘Bally’ continues to sit in the mid-50s, this week placing at #54, up two spots from last week and could experience a huge jump soon following the release of ‘Bally Remix’, which you can watch here.
