Although Williams never reached great commercial heights in the United States, he can fill arenas and stadiums throughout Europe and in Australia, and is a phenomenon in his home country,

He has collected more BRIT Awards than any other artist (18) and all but one of his studio albums have topped the chart; the only album to miss the mark was 2009’s Reality killed the video starwhich peaked at No. 2. He has also led the Official UK Singles Chart with seven titles.

Coming in at No. 2 on the chart blast is Ozzy Osbourne’s Patient number 9 (Columbia). If it holds its position, Patient would give the heavy metal legend a personal best and hit No. 3 peaks for the 2020s Ordinary man.

Also new on the midweek chart is The AmazonsHow will I know if heaven will find me (Fiction), which is set for a No. 5 bow, which would give the British rock act their third top 10 in a row.

Close behind is the Brit Award-winning Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstallwhose trilogy of albums climaxes with Nut (Virgo), set to start at No. 6. Nut is Tunstall’s seventh studio album, four of which hit the UK top 10.
