U.K. MIDWEEKS: KYLIE EYES #1
7/1/19

Hot on the heels of her Glastonbury performance, Kylie Minogue is heading for a seventh #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with the hits package Step Back In Time–The Definitive Collection (BMG). Over on singles, Ed Sheeran has three tracks in the Top 5.

At the midweek stage, Kylie is outselling her closest rival, Lewis Capaldi, by more than 2:1. The set was released two days before her Glastonbury “legends” slot on Sunday.

The second highest new entry today is The Black Keys with Let’s Rock (Nonesuch) at #3, followed by Chris Brown’s  “Indigo” (RCA) at #4. A new three-disc Hank Marvin collection, Gold (Crimson), starts at #6.

Other acts benefitting from a post-Glastonbury lift include Saturday headliners The Killers, whose Direct Hits (Island) flies 47 places to #8 while Hot Fuss is back in the Top 100 for the first time in two years at #43.

Friday headliner Stormzy is up 59 places to #14 with his debut, Gang Signs & Prayer (Merky/Atlantic) as The Cure’s Greatest Hits (Fiction) rises to #45.

On the Official Singles midweeks, Sheeran's “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber (Atlantic) remains at #1, his new track “Beautiful People” f/Khalid starts at #3 and “Cross Me” f/Chance the Rapper and PnB rock remains at #4.

Meanwhile, Sigala is up three to #8 with “Wish You Well” f/Becky Hill (Ministry of Sound), and Mabel’s “Mad Love” (Polydor) climbs four places to #9.
