Pharrell Williams' 'G I R L' takes No. 1 spot in U.K.

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Pharrell Williams has been riding the success of his latest single, "Happy." However, he now has another accomplishment to add to his growing resume. His newest solo album, G I R L, took over the No. 1 spot on the U.K. album chart.

G I R L sold over 70,000 in the U.K. last week. This album is now the fastest-selling release of 2014 from an arist so far, Billboard reported. Back in January, Bruce Springsteen's High Hopes sold over 40,000 copies, but now that is in second place for the fasting selling album of 2014.

Williams' Oscar nominated song, "Happy," fell to number two on the single charts last week in the U.K. after spending three weeks at number one.

Rounding out the top spots on the album charts in the U.K. were Ellie Goulding, Avicii and Bastille.

Two albums made their way back into the top ten after being knocked out a week before. Katy Perry's Prism moved up from the 24th spot on the charts to the seventh position. Imagine Dragons returned with their album Night Visions, which broke into the top 10 by taking the ninth spot on the charts.

Williams recently performed at the Future Music Festival and audiences are raving about the performance that Williams gave to the crowd, Sydney Morning Herald reported.
