The Geordie artists were included on the Top 40 list.

The Official Charts Company have revealed which albums topped the charts in 2022, with two albums by fellow Geordies making the prestigious list.

The list, which was announced yesterday (January 4) on the Official Charts website revealed which albums had been placed on the Top 40 biggest albums of 2022.

The albums on the list included artists of different genres and from different years. ABBA’s Greatest Hits album from 1992, ABBA Gold, was included at 10th place, meaning that not all of the biggest albums of 2022 were released in that year.

Taking the top spot was Harry Styles’ 2022 album Harry’s House, while second place was Ed Sheeran with his 2021 album =, and Taylor Swift’s most recent album Midnights took the third spot.

However, it was certainly a proud moment for the North East, as two albums made by fellow Geordie’s made the list.

Little Mix, which includes two South Shields-born singers, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards, were placed at 9th with their greatest hits album Between Us. The album was released in 2021, to celebrate the group reaching 10 years together.

Although former band-mate Jesy Nelson left the group in 2020, the trio (including Leigh-Anne Pinnock) released the special album of their best songs throughout their 10-year career, including Black Magic, Shout Out To My Ex and their debut single, Wings. Between Us was the last album that the girl group released before embarking on hiatus in 2022.
