U.K. MIDWEEKS: BRING VS. BICEP
1/25/21

Electronic duo Bicep and British rock band Bring Me The Horizon are locked in a tight battle for this week’s U.K. Official Albums #1. Over on singles, TikTok star Nathan Evans looks set to claim the highest new entry.

Bicep is currently #1 on the midweek albums chart with Isles (Ninja Tune), which is the most downloaded and highest-streamed release of the week so far. BMTH’s EP Post Human: Survival Horror (RCA) is just 103 sales behind, buoyed by its physical release (it arrived digital-only in October, peaking at #5).

Following his 80th birthday this past weekend and BBC special honoring the occasion, Neil Diamond’s All-Time Greatest Hits (Capitol/UMC) is set to return to the Top 40, currently at #4.

Acoustic album Under A Mediterranean Sky (InsideOutMusic) from guitarist Steve Hackett is at #7 midweek, and a vinyl reissue of David Bowie’s 1975 album, Station To Station (Parlophone), is spurring it back into the Top 10 at #8.

Norwegian folk group Wardruna could enter the Official Albums Chart for the first time, currently at #10 with their fifth album, Kvitravn (Sony).

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, Evans—who kick-started viral craze sea shantying on TikTok (dubbed ShantyTok)—is sitting at #4 with “Wellerman” (Polydor).

Leading today’s chart is Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” (Polydor), while The Kid Laroi is set for his highest chart position to date as “Without You” (RCA) scales three places to #2.

Irish DJ Shane Codd’s “Get Out My Head” (Polydor) is on track to rebound three slots to #7, while there are new peaks in the cards for Tiesto’s “The Business” (Atlantic) at #14 and Doja Cat’s “Streets” (Ministry of Sound) at #19.
