BAD Boy Chiller Crew (BBCC) have rocked to the top of the charts, with their new album officially placing at Number 2 today.

“Disrespectful”, released February 18, has beat Adele to come second in the Official Album Chart and can boast being the highest new entry.

Kane, Clive and Gareth Kelly (better known as GK) just fell short of top spot, losing out to Ed Sheeran and =(Equals).

But it has been a double whammy for the Bradford boys, with single, BMW, reaching Number 40 in the charts this week too.

The gang also made it to Number 3 in the Official Record Store Chart today - a weekly music chart based on physical sales of albums in almost 100 independent record stores in the United Kingdom.

BBCC said to the Official Charts, on finding out the news: "We’ve got nothing but love for our fans, thank you. Our dreams are coming true.

"We want the world to party. It can be a dark place, but we just want to provide some feel-good beats.” 

It is a result that firmly puts BBCC on the map and confirms what thousands of fans have known, and have been saying, for a while now.

The trio have experienced a meteoric rise over the past two years – from the humble beginnings of comedy skit videos and raw tracks on YouTube, to now having released their second album, performed at Leeds and Reading Fest in August 2021, completed a hit tour last October and about to embark on another run of shows, including an overseas tour in the summer.

The new album features 22 tracks and takes you on a journey.

There is BBCC’s iconic wobbly bassline tunes, complete with Kane’s inspired rapping over-the-top and help from Clive and GK.

But “Disrespectful” also showcases the group’s sheer versatility, with the likes of BMW and Wasting Time having a more classic dance track feel, while Stick Around slows things right down and hits you right in the feels.

The Bradford boys have been encouraging people to buy their latest album all week, while also performing in a run of mini-shows to celebrate its launch.

They have also shared a number of hilarious mock-up pictures people have made of famous characters holding up “Disrespectful” on Twitter – including Bobby Moore holding it aloft instead of the World Cup and each of the Beatles handling a copy as they walk across Abbey Road.

Speaking of The Beatles, GK spoke to The T&A’s Brad Deas before one of those album launch shows, at The Wardrobe, Leeds on Monday night, and said BBCC want to be the modern day version of that famous Liverpool band.

The trio are well on their way to emulating at least some of that Scouse success and who knows where the ceiling is for BBCC.

GK himself said they want to blow that roof off and they certainly will be throughout this year.

Next up is their second full tour, in April and May, before heading to America, Australia and New Zealand in the summer.

There is also a third album coming, with Kane telling the Official Charts in an interview that it will drop in October this year.
