U.K. MIDWEEKS: 3-WAY JAM AT THE TOP

New albums from Muse, Olly Murs and The Beatles have entered the U.K.’s Official Albums Top 3 at the midweek stage while Ariana Grande looks set to hold onto the singles #1. Cheryl currently has this week’s highest new entry on singles at #8.

Muse sits at #1 with Simulation Theory (Warner Bros.), followed by Olly Murs at #2 with You Know I Know (RCA). The Beatles take third place with an expanded edition of their self-titled 1968 classic known commonly as “The White Album” (Apple Corps).

There are three more new releases eyeing a Top 10 entry: Aled Jones & Russell Watson's collaborative collection In Harmony (BMG) starts at #7, followed by Imagine Dragons' fourth album Origins (Polydor) at #8. I'll Remember You (Sony Music) from Britain's Got Talent 2018 finalists, The D-Day Darlings, is new at #10.

On the Official Singles midweek chart, Grande is on course for a second week at #1 with “thank u, next” (Island) leading its closest competitor, “Shallow” (Polydor) by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, by 20k combined sales.

Further down, Cheryl starts at #8 with “Love Made Me Do It” (3 Beat). Outside of the Top 10, Jonas Blue f/Liam Payne and Lennon Stella 's “Polaroid” (Virgin EMI) is up five to #11, while Zara Larsson is on the cusp of cracking the Top 20 with “Ruin My Life” (Black Butter) rising six to #16.
