Drill rapper Digga D has landed his first number one record with Noughty By Nature.
he 21-year-old London artist, real name Rhys Angelo Emile Herbert, topped the charts with his third mixtape in the genre’s latest moment of success.
In May 2021, Tion Wayne and Russ Millions’ Body became the first drill song to top the UK Singles Chart in what has been dubbed a “milestone” moment.
Characterized by its distinctive trap-style beat and menacing sounds, the hip-hop subgenre has enjoyed a steady surge in popularity since 2018.
Digga D previously peaked at number 11 with his 2019 debut Double Tap Diaries, while his 2020 release Made In The Pyrex peaked at number three.
He said: “Thank you all for your support. I look forward to releasing more music so keep supporting.”
The mixtape is also the fifth independent number one album of the year and is the second week in a row that an independent release has topped the charts after indie duo Wet Leg smashed their debut last week.
Ed Sheeran’s Equals was second, while Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour was third and Wet Leg’s self-titled effort was fourth.
Little Mix’s Between Us returns to the Top 5 as band members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock embark on their Confetti Tour – their final shows before a hiatus.
