U.K. CHARTS: A GOLDEN RISE TO THE TOP

King of streaming Drake has risen to the top of the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart to claim his fourth #1 and second this year with surprise track “Nice for What” (Island). Over on albums, Kylie Minogue has her sixth chart-topper and first with BMG, Golden.

Despite entering at #8 midweek, “Nice for What” rocketed to the top thanks to streaming. The second highest new entry on singles this week is “One Kiss” (Columbia) by Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa at #3. It was a close race between the Top 3 tracks with just over 2k sales separating them all. Last week’s #1, “Freaky Friday” (BMG) by Lil Dicky andChris Brown, moves down to #2.

Midweek #1, “Dreams” (Polydor) by The Voice winner Ruti, has plunged down to #14 after an initial sales rush.

Elsewhere, U.K. rapper B Young reaches a new peak with “Jumanji” (Columbia) up one place to #13, while Banx & Ranx, Ella Eyre and Yxng Bane’s “Answerphone” (Parlophone) zooms 24 spots to #25. Cardi B’s “Be Careful” (Atlantic) vaults 45 spots to #27, while her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, opens at #6 on the Official Albums Chart.

Elsewhere on albums, Golden finished 13k combined sales ahead of its nearest rival, The Greatest Showman soundtrack (Atlantic).

30 Seconds to Mars have the second highest new entry at #4 with America (Polydor), followed by The Courteeners at #5 with a reworked version of their debut album, St. Jude Re:Wired (Ignition). New British artist Tom Misch has hit #8 with his debut, Geography (Kobalt).
