U.K. MIDWEEKS: A BIEBER BATTLE FOR #1

The U.K. is having a tough time deciding on a #1, but it all boils down to one superstar: Justin Bieber. There’s a fierce battle on Blighty’s Official Singles Chart between Major Lazer and DJ Snake, with just 3k combined sales separating the two at midweek stage.

Lazer’s “Cold Water” f/Bieber and MO (Because Music) is leading the pack and on course for a fourth week at #1. Bieber and Snake’s “Let Me Love You” (Polydor) takes the second spot.

Elsewhere, the highest Top 10 climber is The Chainsmokers f/Halsey’s “Closer” (RCA) leaping eight places to #4. The track has moved ahead of another Chainsmokers track, “Don’t Let Me Down” (RCA) f/Daya at #5. Calum Scott’s “Dancing On My Own” (Virgin EMI) holds at #3.

The new track from Olly Murs, “You Don’t Know Love” (RCA), has made a big improvement, leaping 21 places to #14, as has Tieks f/Dan Harkna’s “Sunshine” (Ministry of Sound), zooming 11 places to #20.

Over on the Official Albums list at midway stage, ELO are back on top with All Over The World—The Very Best Of (Epic). However, it’s not going to be an easy win, with just 230 combined sales separating it from last week’s #1, Blossoms’ self-titled Virgin EMI debut.

Drake’s Views (Island) stays at #3, while Christine & the QueensChaleur Humaine (Because Music) rises two places to #4. Bob Marley and The Wailers’ Legend rebounds six places to #5, its highest ranking since September 2014.
