Gracie Abrams Celebrates Career Milestone with First-Ever No. 1 on U.K. Albums Chart

Gracie Abrams has secured her first-ever No. 1 album on the Official UK Albums Chart with her sophomore release, The Secret Of Us.

The Californian singer-songwriter’s second studio album follows her debut Good Riddance, which peaked at No. 3 in 2023.

Abrams celebrated her chart-topping success after a surprise appearance at Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour at London’s Wembley Stadium, where they performed “us.” from her new album.

“Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for somehow making my album The Secret Of Us No. 1 in the UK. I can’t wrap my head around that. This is the first time that anything I’ve ever done, ever, anywhere has gone No. 1.”

“Thank you for believing in the album, thank you for listening to it, and thank you for letting it into your lives. This means so much to me, and to the people I’m lucky enough to have made these songs with. I can’t wait until we’re all in the same place, to sing these songs together at a show and to dance. I’ll be crying! I love you, thank you so much,” Abrams told Official Charts.

The Secret Of Us also tops the Official Record Store Chart and the Official Vinyl Albums Chart, making it the best-selling record of the week on vinyl in the U.K.
