Dance duo Nero are on course to go straight in at Number One with their debut album 'Welcome Reality' on Sunday (August 21).

The duo, who scored their first UK Number One single last Sunday (August 14) with 'Promises', are set to end Amy Winehouse's three-week stay at the top of the album chart.

Winehouse's second album 'Back To Black' is presently at Number Four, with Adele's '21' and Jay-Z and Kanye West's 'Watch The Throne' at Number Two and Three, respectively.

Charlie Simpson is currently on for a strong first week, with his debut solo album 'Young Pilgrim' presently at Number Five. Kids In Glass Houses are also looking good, with their third album 'In Gold Blood' set to hit Number 16.

In the singles race, the Top Three is set to entirely consist of new entries. Wretch 32 is currently leading the way with his new track 'Don't Go', while Emeli Sande is presently heading for Number Two with her single 'Heaven', and Maroon 5's track with Christina Aguilera, 'Moves Like Jagger', is set to hit Number Three.

Nero's single is down to Number Four, but another of the dubstep cohort, Modestep, are likely to make a big splash as their new track 'Sunlight' is currently at Number 12.

Check back at NME.COM on Sunday from 7pm for the Official UK Album and Singles Chart results.
