U.K. MIDWEEKS: A MANIC MONDAY

Manic Street Preachers are currently sitting at #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums midweek chart with their 13th studio release, Resistance is Futile (Columbia), while The Damned enter at #5 with their first album in 10 years, Evil Spirits (Search & Destroy/Spinefarm).

Elsewhere on albums, Kylie Minogue has dropped to #3 with Golden (BMG) while George Ezra is down to #4 with Staying at Tamara’s (Columbia). Dua Lipa is up three places to #8 with her self-titled debut as the accompanying tour kicks off in the U.K.

Over on the Official Singles midweeks, Harris and Lipa's “One Kiss” (Columbia/Warner Bros.) has risen two places and is challenging Drake for the #1 spot. It’s currently 3.3k combined sales ahead of “Nice for What” (Island). 

Climbers include “Lullaby” (Ministry of Sound) by Sigala & Paloma Faith rising three spots to #6 while Bebe Rexha is on the cusp of her first Top 10 as a lead artist with “Meant to Be” (Parlophone) f/Florida Georgia Line at #10.

Zayn looks set to claim this week’s highest new entry with “Let Me” (RCA) at #17, followed by Nicki Minaj with “Chun-Li” (Island) and “Barbie Tingz” at #21 and #22 respectively.
