The teenager’s debut entered the chart at no. 8, the highest new entry for the week.
According to the Official Charts Company, the album has also reached no. 28 on Britain’s Official Independent Albums Chart, which measures sales across all formats.
Both charts are also measured using sales across all formats.
A video of Bradley’s Hootenanny performance that was uploaded to BBC Music’s YouTube channel (above) has since garnered almost 370,000 views.
Meanwhile, fans in Ireland and England will have the opportunity to catch the young talent live at two upcoming shows.
