U.K. MIDWEEKS: CHART DOUBLE #2?
6/6/22

Harry Styles is in line to register his second chart double—#1 on the Official Albums and Singles charts—as Post Malone eyes the week’s highest debut at albums and a couple of decades-old singles are Top 5-bound.

Should Harry’s House (Columbia) return to #1, it would be the first record to score a second week at #1 this year. “As It Was” is still #1 as it vies for a 10th consecutive week at the top.

Malone’s fourth studio album, Twelve Carat Toothache (Island), sits at #2 midweek and is positioned to be his fourth consecutive U.K. Top 10 LP.

Other contenders for Top 10 debuts are Prince & The Revolution–Live (Sony Music CMG) at #6, a 10th anniversary edition of You Me at Six’s Sinners Never Sleep (Virgin) at #7, and Angel Olsen’s Big Time (Jagjaguwar) at #10, which would be her first ever U.K. Top 10 record. Queen’s Greatest Hits (Parlophone), fresh off their record-setting chart week, is up to #11.

At singles, two tracks that first charted many decades ago headed for Top 5 landings this week. Kate Bush’s 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill” (Fish People) is eyeing a six-slot jump to #2 thanks to its use in Netflix’s Stranger Things. The Sex Pistols’ two new vinyl pressings of “God Save The Queen” (UMC) has Johnny Rotten & company eyeing a return to the Top 5 for the first time in more than 40 years. “God Save The Queen” hit #2 back in 1977.

Sam Ryder’s Eurovision anthem “SPACE MAN” (Parlophone), up two to #9 following his performance at the Platinum Party at the Palace concert during the Queen’s Jubilee.

Malone’s “I Like You (A Happier Song)” is most likely the week’s highest new entry, currently #19.
