Ozzy released his new studio album Ordinary Man (opens in new tab) earlier this year – and it was an instant hit, smashing its way into the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

The vocalist’s first solo album since 2010’s Scream entered the Billboard 200 Chart at no.3 – the first time Ozzy has climbed that high since 2007’s Black Rain

While in the UK, Ordinary Man debuted at no.3 – making it Ozzy’s highest-charting solo album ever. His previous best was his 1980 debut Blizzard Of Ozz which peaked at no.7.
