U.K. MIDWEEKS: DUA VS. BEY
2/19/24

Dua Lipa and Beyoncé are locked in battle to take the #1 slot at singles while IDLES and Paloma Faith are competing for this week's U.K. Official Albums #1.

Lipa’s “Training Season” (Warner Records) is leading the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks. Should it hold onto its position by Friday, it will be her fifth U.K. #1 single. Beyoncé’s “TEXAS HOLD ‘EM” (Columbia/Parkwood), however, is just over 3k sales behind after rising seven places over the weekend.

Long-running #1, “Stick Season” (Republic) by Noah Kahan, has slipped down to #6.

Over on albums at today's midweek mark, IDLES are in the lead with their fifth set, TANGK (Partisan). Faith’s The Glorification of Sadness (RCA) is in second place. Liverpool band Crawlers are also new, at #3, with their debut, The Mess We Seem to Make (Polydor).

The third set from duo PET NEEDS, Intermittent Fast Living (Xtra Mile), starts at #7. Cast could score their first Top 10 in 25 years with their self-released Love is the Call at #8.

Back at singles, Ella Henderson and Rudimental’s “Alibi” (Major Toms/Asylum) continues its upward trajectory—it is expected to rise four to #11.

Kygo and Ava Max are also on the up, with the Shakira-sampling “Whatever” (RCA) on track to crack the Top 20 for the first time at #13. Calvin Harris and Rag'n'Bone Man have teamed up again for their new track, “Lovers in a Past Life” (Sony), which is set for a #17 debut.
