U.K. MIDWEEKS: 3-WAY BATTLE FOR #1
6/27/22

A tight three-way race for #1 on the U.K. Official Albums Chart is brewing with Porcupine Tree in the lead over Harry Styles and Drake. It’s a two-way race at singles between LF System’s summery dance hit and Kate Bush’s classic from 1985.

Porcupine Tree’s Closure/Continuation (Music For Nations) is not only vying to be the band’s first #1, it will be their first ever entry in Official Albums Chart Top 10. While it has had strong physical sales, Styles’ Harry’s House (Columbia), at #2, and Drake’s Honestly, Nevermind (OVO/Republic), at #3, are still pulling in superb streaming numbers.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, Chris Brown’s Breezy (RCA) is eyeing #6, Luke CombsGrowin’ Up (River House/Columbiae) is one slot behind him, Conan Gray’s second studio album, Superache (Island) comes in at #8, and Eric Clapton’s collection of 17 previously unreleased live performances from 1994, Nothing But The Blues (Rhino), occupies #10.

A lot could change by Friday as the charts mirror the impact of performers at Glastonbury Festival over the weekend. Look for leaps by Billie Eilish, Sam Fender, Wet Leg, Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar, Diana Ross and possibly others.

At singles, LF System’s “Afraid To Feel” (Warner) is challenging Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” (Fish People), which has held the top slot the last two weeks.

Beyoncé’s comeback smash “Break My Soul” (Columbia) is up 17 places to #4, Drake’s “Massive” is up two to a new peak of #6, and Joji’s “Glimpse Of Us” () peeks in at #11 after climbing three slots.

Charlie Puth & Jungkook’s “Left and Right” (Atlantic) is currently #14 and most likely this week’s highest new entry. Taylor Swift’s new one, “Carolina” (Polydor), is pacing to enter at #17.
