U.K. MIDWEEKS: SLOWTHAI EYES #1
2/15/21

British rapper Slowthai is heading for his first U.K. #1 with second album, Tyron (Method). Over on the U.K. Official Singles midweek update, “Calling My Phone” (Columbia) by Lil Tjay and 6LACK takes an early lead.

On the U.K.’s Official Albums midweek chart, Tyron sits 4,000 sales ahead of the second album from Manchester band Pale Waves, Who Am I? (Dirty Hit), at #2.

The Pretty Reckless’ Death By Rock and Roll (Century Media) is new at #4 midweek, followed by David Bowie’s live album, Look at the Moon (Parlophone), at #5.

Following the release of its Moonlight Edition, Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia (Warner Records) rises five places to #6. Just outside of the Top 10 at #11 is Taylor Swift’s Evermore (EMI), which scales the chart after the release of “Love Story (Taylor’s Version).”

On the singles chart, should it hold into its position by Friday, “Calling My Phone” will end the five-week reign of Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” (Polydor).

Swift’s “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” is new at #4, while “Friday” (Ministry of Sound) by Riton & Nightcrawlers f/Mufasa & Hypeman is up another eight places to #8. Finally, Lipa’s new single, “We’re Good,” starts at #20.
