Cape Town – Capetonian singer and songwriter Matthew Mole has become the first South African artist to enter the iTunes album chart at No 1 on Monday, reports Timeslive.

Making South African chart history, his debut album The Home We Built, beat the likes of international artists Jay Z, The Rolling Stones, Michael Buble and Robin Thicke. It also beat local DJ/producer DJ Kent and NOW That’s What I Call Music to top the chart.

Mole, 21, from Fish Hoek in Cape Town, is already attracting international interest as his debut album has been chosen as Record Of The Day in the UK and A&R Worldwide’s 'Artist Of The Week' in the US.

Mole told Timeslive that it was "an amazing thing to see the album at No.1 on the morning of its release" and said it's "all thanks to the overwhelming support received from everyone".
