U.K. MIDWEEKS: FLYING HIGH
8/5/19

UMG label Polydor has the highest new entries on the U.K.'s Official Albums and Singles midweeks: Ariana Grande Social House, who have shot straight in at #1 on with “Boyfriend," and Mabel at #2 on albums with her debut High Expectations

Should “Boyfriend” hold onto its top spot by Friday, Ariana will have her sixth chart-topping single in Blighty and Social House will earn their first chart entry.

She comes from a talented family of musicians: Her parents are Neneh Cherry and producer Cameron McVey (Massive AttackPortisheadAll SaintsSugababes).
