‘WHO’ is Number 1 in BILLBOARD charts and elswhere
The Who’s brand new studio album WHO is Number 1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart for the week ending December 21, 2019, and also earning the highest ranking debut album of the week. Album sales do not include free streaming so that’s quite a cool achievement for the band.
WHO charted at #2 in Billboard‘s Top 200 chart, the band’s joint highest charting album ever in the US alongside Who Are You (1978) and Quadrophenia (1973).
Here in the UK, The Who narrowly missed #1 last week. WHO is The Who’s highest charting album in the UK since 1982 and is on course to go silver this week, maintaining a second week in the Top ten.
WHO charted at #1 in the UK Official Vinyl chart and #1 in the Official Record Store chart (UK Independent stores).

The Who are also Number 1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart, the Billboard Rock Albums Sales chart and the Billboard Current Albums chart.
