British grime star Stormzy’s debut record Gang Signs & Prayer has knocked Rag’n’Bone Man off the top of the U.K. album chart.

The two Brits were engaged in an intense back-and-forth battle for the number one spot, with the 23-year-old rapper taking over at the top with combined sales of 69,000.

Gang Signs & Prayer also racked up the most first-week streams in U.K. chart history.

Reacting to his album’s success, Stormzy tells OfficialCharts.com “It hasn’t sunk in yet. Honestly, I wish I could take every person who bought and streamed the album out with me, have dinner with them, dedicate a whole night to them. I don’t take your support for granted. I can’t thank you enough.”
