Coldplay’s ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ to top charts for first time following Super Bowl performance

It was previously the band's only album not to hit Number One

Coldplay‘s ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ album looks set to hit the top spot on the Official Albums Chart this Friday (February 12), following the band’s Super Bowl halftime performance.

The record was the only one of the band’s albums not to have previously gone to Number One on the charts, but the Official Charts Company are reporting a spike of 8,000 combined sales since yesterday’s (February 7) sporting event.

If the album does make it to the top spot, it will be Coldplay’s seventh UK Number One. On its original release in December last year, it was kept off poll position by Adele’s ’25’.


Elsewhere in the Official Albums Chart update, David Bowie retrospective ‘Best Of Bowie’ falls to Number Two, while Elton John scores his 31st Top 10 album with ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’. Adele’s ’25’ stays at Number Four and Justin Bieber’s ‘Purpose’ remains at Number Five.

In the Official Singles Chart, Danish band Lukas Graham could knock former One Direction star Zayn off the Number One spot with their single ‘7 Years’.

Rihanna’s surprise single ‘Work’ is currently at Number Five, below Jonas Blue & Dakota’s ‘Fast Car’ (Number Three) and Shawn Mendes’ ‘Stitches’ (Number Four).

Coldplay have also seen a surge in combined singles sales, with their Beyoncé collaboration ‘Hymn For The Weekend’ one of the week’s highest climbers so far. The song has risen from Number 60 to 28.
