U.K. MIDWEEKS: A 7TH #1 FOR TAYLOR?
4/12/21

Taylor Swift looks set to top the U.K. Official Albums Chart on Friday with Fearless (Taylor’s Version) (EMI) currently ahead of its closest competitor by 11k sales. Over on singles, “Rapstar” (Columbia) by Polo G is new at #2.

The newly recorded version could become Swift’s seventh #1 in the U.K. and, should it hold onto its midweek peak, Swift will take third place on the list of female artists with the most chart-topping albums behind Madonna (12) and Kylie Minogue (8). The original 2008 version of Fearless peaked at #5.

Following its vinyl release, Ariana Grande’s Positions (Island) is on track to return to the Top 40 at #2, while French composer Jean-Michel Jarre is heading for his highest-charting album since 1988 with Amazonia (RCA) at #4.

Following his death Friday, two greatest hits collections from DMX could enter the Top 10 for the first time; The Best Of (UMG) is #6 and The Definition of X: The Pick of the Litter is #10.
