Blossoms’ debut album heading for UK Number One

Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MØ likely to hold on to Singles Chart top spot

Blossoms are on track to reach Number One in the UK Albums Chart later this week.

The latest NME cover stars released their self-titled LP last Friday (August 5), with the group telling NME that the record “sounds like Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey and Phil Collins”.

The Official Charts Company has now confirmed that Blossoms are leading this week’s race at the midweek mark. ‘Blossoms’ is ahead by 7,000 combined sales.


UK rapper Giggs is at Number Two with his fourth album ‘Landlord’. It would be his highest charting release yet.


Last week’s Number One, Viola Beach, are currently at Number Three with their self-titled posthumous debut, with ELO at Number Four and Wild Beasts‘ fifth album ‘Boy King’ at Number Five.

Major Lazer‘s collaboration with Justin Bieber and MØ, ‘Cold Water’ looks set to hold on to top spot in the UK Singles Chart.

Another Bieber-featuring track, DJ Snake’s ‘Let Me Love You’, is currently at Number Two, with Calum Scott’s ‘Dancing On My Own’ at Number Three, Jonas Blue’s ‘Perfect Strangers’ at Number Four and Chainsmokers’ ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ at Number Five.
