Dua Lipa's 'Radical Optimism' Is Kinder Than Radical

Music news

Dua Lipa is also number 1 in Spain with 'Radical Optimism'

Dua Lipa enters number 1 on the Spanish album chart with 'Radical Optimism', her new album. 'Radical Optimism' equals in Spain the figure of 'Future Nostalgia', which also reached first place on the album chart in 2021 after the reissue of the album, originally published the previous year. Dua Lipa's debut came in 11th place in 2017.

The direct number 1 of 'Radical Optimism' in Spain also equals the figure for the United Kingdom and other territories such as France or the Netherlands. In the United States, Italy or Ireland it has been at 2.

Sia has worse luck with 'Reasonable Woman'. Sia Furler's first studio album in eight years enters at number 30 on Promusicae. Curiously, it equals the maximum of '1000 Forms of Fear', the album that contained 'Chandelier'. 'This is Acting' achieved a fourth place finish in 2016, helped by the enormous success of 'Cheap Thrills', which gave Sia her first and only number 1 single in our country. 'Reasonable Woman' has been number 14 in Australia, number 16 in Germany, number 22 in Scotland and number 59 in the United Kingdom.

In Spain, Isabel Pantoja achieves a better position than Sia: her compilation album '50 Anniversary' comes in at number 13.

Then, another interesting entry stars Alizzz. 'Reckless Driving' debuts at position number 67 on the list, only thanks to streaming, as it has not been released physically. 'There has to be something more' reached 34th place in 2021.

Other entries on the list are 'Reflexa' by Danny Ocean at number 67, 'SEVENTEEN BEST ALBUM '17 IS RIGHT HERE' by Seventeen at number 68, 'García' by Kany García at number 80 and 'Fearless Movement' by Kamasi Washington in 96. Finally, Teddy Swims, author of the macrohit 'Lose Control' places his album 'I've Tried Everything but Therapy' in 100th place.
