U.K. MIDWEEKS: KSI GOES ALL IN
7/19/21

KSI’s All Over the Place (BMG) looks set to top the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart, having outsold the rest of the Top 5 combined at the halfway point. Over on singles, Måneskin are heading for a personal best.

Elsewhere on albums, John Mayer is on course for his third U.K. Top 10 with Sob Rock (Columbia) at #3, while Pop Smoke’s second posthumous record, Faith (UMG), is new at #4 midweek.

Foo Fighters’ release for the second Record Store Day, Hail Satin (RCA), starts at #7, while Tina Turner’s Foreign Affair (Parlophone) could return to the chart at #13 thanks to a deluxe reissue.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, Måneskin’s “I Wanna Be Your Slave” (Sony) has climbed four places to #3 following the arrival of the track’s video. The band’s cover of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons’ “Beggin” also makes midweek gains, up two to #6.

Ed Sheeran looks set to claim a fourth week at #1 with “Bad Habits” (Atlantic), while “Heartbreak Anthem” (Atlantic) by Galantis, David Guetta and Little Mix ascends four places to #2.

Jonasu could break the U.K. Top 10 for the first time on Friday with summer hit “Black Magic” (3 Beat), which rises seven rungs to #4 midweek.

The release of KSI’s album sees his single “Holiday” rise five places to #5 and his “No Time” f/Lil Durk sitting just outside the Top 20 at #22. Becky Hill’s collaboration with David Guetta, “Remember” (Polydor), advances five places to #10.

The highest new entry of the week so far is “Demeanor” (Polydor) from Pop Smoke and Dua Lipa, which starts at #14.
