U.K. MIDWEEKS: DAVE'S DOMINATION

British rapper Dave looks set to top the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart on Friday with his second release, We’re All Alone in This (NBR). Over on singles, he has three entries in the Top 5.

At the midweek point, Dave is outselling the rest of the albums Top 5 combined and has so far racked up the most physical, downloads and streaming-equivalent sales of the week. In the first three days of its release, We’re All Alone in This has already surpassed the first-week sales total of Dave’s 2019 #1 debut, Psychodrama, and is poised to post one of 2021’s biggest opening weeks.

Anne-Marie is on the cusp of a new personal best with her second set, Therapy (Atlantic), opening at #2—one place higher than her debut peaked at in 2018.

Paul McCartney’s McCartney III Imagined (EMI) starts at #4, and The Kid LAROI’s F*ck Love (RCA) mixtape is on track for #6.

Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black (Island) has returned to the Top 10 at #7 following the 10th anniversary of her death, while Miley CyrusPlastic Hearts (RCA) moves up to #9 following its vinyl release.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, Dave’s Stormzy collaboration, “Clash,” is up six to #2, his “Verdansk” is new at #3 and “In the Fire” opens at #4.

Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” (Atlantic) appears to be claiming a fifth week at #1 with a current lead of 7k in sales. Anne-Marie and Little Mix’s new collaboration, “Kiss My (Uh Oh),” is on track for a Top 20 debut at #14, while Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow’s “Industry Baby” (Columbia) opens at #16.
