Labrinth looks set to score his first Number One in the Official Singles Chart with his track, 'Beneath Your Beautiful' which features Emeli Sande.

According to midweek data from the Official Charts Company, the song is 14,000 sales ahead of the current Number Two, Swedish House Mafia featuring John Martin with 'Don't You Worry Child'.

Meanwhile, JLS are on track for their ninth Top 10 single in the shape of the song 'Hottest Girl In The World', which is currently at Number Three. Calvin Harris and Florence Welch's 'Sweet Nothing', a former Number One, is now in the fourth spot, followed by Rihanna's 'Diamonds' at Number Five.

Over in the midweek Official Albums Chart, US country-pop star Taylor Swift is looking to nab her first ever UK Number One, with 'Red', her fourth LP, which follows 2010's 'Speak Now'. The album is followed at Number Two by the deluxe edition of Emeli Sande's 'Our Version Of Events', which it is outselling two to one.

Lawson's debut album 'Chapman Square' is at Number Three, whilst Jake Bugg's debut is at Number Four and Mumford and Sons' 'Babel' is at Number Five.

Dappy's debut LP 'Bad Intentions' is in at Number Six in the midweeks and Stone Sour – made up of Slipknot's Corey Taylor and Jim Root - are straight in at Number Seven with their fourth album, 'House Of Gold And Bones Part 1'.
