New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Pioneering UK rappers KREPT & KONAN break yet another record by being the first act in history to have two mixtapes debut in the Top 10 of the Official UK Albums chart simultaneously.
7 DAYS enters at no. 6 in the Official UK Albums Chart, while 7 NIGHTS enters at no. 8.
A UK first (no other British artist has released two mixtapes on the same day), 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTS reflect the two sides of KREPT & KONAN's signature sound. While 7 DAYS boasts harder edged, grittier club tracks and features from J Hus, Skepta, Stormzy, Abra Cadabra and more; 7 NIGHTS showcases smoother, R n' B inflected, sultry jams and guest spots from Jhene Aiko, Hudson East and Tory Lanez.
Three singles (with accompanying music videos) have been released from 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTS to date: Wo Wo Wo, For Me and the recent Ask Flipz ft. Stormzy, which has debuted no. 30 in the Official UK Singles Charts today after receiving heavy rotation from Radio
1Xtra, Capital Xtra and Beats 1
The release of 7 DAYS and 7 NIGHTS signals a welcome return for the trailblazing duo whose ongoing critical acclaim and chart success has helped paved the way for the likes of J-Hus, Kojo Funds, Abra Cadabra, Yungen, Mo Stack and Section Boys (to name a few). From the 2013 release of their Young Kingz mixtape which shot into the top 20 of the Official UK album charts (earning them a world record for the Highest-Charting UK album by an Unsigned Act), through to the 2015 release of their debut album The Long Way Home (which became the highest charting British Rap album in UK chart history after debuting at no. 2 in the official UK album charts), KREPT & KONAN have repeatedly broken records while consistently breaking ground.
