The singer-songwriter’s seventh studio album shifted 70,000 across physical, download and streaming equivalent sales to top this week’s chart, earning the star her second Number 1 album in the UK, after 2008’s Funhouse.
It’s also the biggest opening week for an international act on the Official UK Albums Chart so far this year, beating Foo Fighters’ week 1 sales of 61,000 for Concrete and Gold.
64% of P!nk’s sales this week were physical purchases, and the album’s total opening week number is more than double her nearest competitor, Liam Gallagher’s As Your Were, which drops from 1 to 2.
P!nk told Official Charts: “Wow… a Number 1 album! Thank you UK for continuing to support me. Two very happy ladies here today <3”
Beautiful Trauma’s opening week number holds up well against her last album, The Truth About Love, which opened with 79,500 sales in September 2012.
