The album, which marks a more mature direction for the former child star, outsold its nearest rival, Views by Drake, by just 600 copies.

But Drake kept a firm grip on the singles chart, where One Dance spent a seventh week at the top.

It's the longest run at number one since Leona Lewis's Bleeding Love in 2007.

The song achieved a "combined chart sale" of 92,500 - a figure that combines paid-for sales with streams.

According to the Official Chart Company, One Dance was the most-streamed song of the week, achieving 6.68 million plays.

The rest of the singles chart was relatively static - with Justin Timberlake, Calvin Harris and Sia non-movers at two, three and four respectively.

Take That scored their 27th top 40 hit, thanks to a guest spot on Sigma's Cry, which was new at number 21; while Craig David's One More Time was brand new at 30.

US singer-songwriter Gnash was the highest climber with his heartbroken, but lyrically explicit, ballad I Hate U, I Love U.

And Canadian singer Shawn Mendes, who found fame on social media, saw his signature song Stitches rack up its 40th week on the countdown.

In the album chart, Bob Dylan saw his 37th studio album, Fallen Angels, become his 37th top 10 hit, entering at number five.

Much like his last record, Shadows in the Night, every song on Fallen Angels (with the exception of Skylark) was once recorded by Frank Sinatra.

Fellow septugenarian Eric Clapton also scored a new entry at six with the cover-heavy I Still Do, despite lukewarm reviews in the music press.

However, he was spared the critical drubbing meted out to Richard Ashcroft, whose new album These People was called "the epitome of staid mediocrity" by Clash Magazine.

Nonetheless, the former Verve star entered the charts at three.
