U.K. MIDWEEKS: SOUR'S SAVORY START

Olivia Rodrigo is on track to secure an Official Chart double, with her debut album, Sour (Geffen), atop the album chart at midweek and “good 4 u” #1 at singles.

Sour, the most-streamed album of the week so far, is already 7,500 chart sales ahead of its closest competition, Gary Numan’s 22nd studio album Intruder (BMG). “Good 4 U,” one of three Sour tracks in the Top 10, is poised to dethrone Tion Wayne & Russ Millions’ “Body,” which has dropped to #3. Rodrigo’s “Déjà Vu” is #5 and “Brutal” enters at #10.

Back at albums, where Numan’s Intruder is the best-selling physical release of the week, twenty one pilots are on track for their third Top 10 with Scaled And Icy (Atlantic/Fueled By Ramen) at #3. P!nk’s concert film companion album All I Know So far: Setlist (RCA) is #4 and the most downloaded release of the week so far.

My Bloody Valentine’s 1991 album Loveless (Domino) is #5 thanks to a full catalog reissue that dropped on CD and vinyl on 5/21. The band’s other two studio albums also feature in the midweek Top 10: 1988’s Isn’t Anything is #8 and 2013’s MBV is #10.

Seeking New Gods (Rough Trade) from Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys starts at #7 and Waterparks’ Greatest Hits (300 Entertainment) could land a Top 20 debut at #14.

At singles, BTS is on track to secure the highest new entry of the week as “Butter” (Big Hit) opens at #2. Little Mix’s “Heartbreak Anthem” (Atlantic), a collaboration with Galantis and David Guetta, is #8, the second highest new entry of the week.
