U.K. MIDWEEKS: SEA OF MADNESS

Madness is on track to claim its third U.K. Official Albums #1. Over on singles, Jack Harlow is set for another week at #1.

Theatre of the Absurd Presents C’est la Vie (BMG), the 13th studio LP by Madness, could be its highest-charting since 2016’s Can’t Touch Us Now, which peaked at #5.

Dolly Parton is another high new entry, at #3 with Rockstar (Big Machine). Following the release of a deluxe Scary Hours Edition, Drake’s For All the Dogs (OVO/Republic) is set to rebound into the Top 5 at #4. The National start at #5 with Laugh Track (4AD).

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, Harlow’s “Lovin’ on Me” (Atlantic) is heading for a second week at the top.

The Beatles’ former #1 single “Now and Then” (Apple Corps) is expected to rise four to #2. Tate McRae is eyeing this week’s highest new entry, with viral hit “exes” (RCA) starting at #10.

Making an early bid for 2023’s #1 Christmas single, Wham! ascend 13 places to #13 with “Last Christmas” (Sony). Zara Larsson and David Guetta’s latest team-up, “On My Love” (Epic), could break into the Top 20 for the first time on Friday, at #18.
