Swedish House Mafia to beat Adele to Number One UK Singles spot?

Singer's 'Skyfall' track is lagging behind dance giants' new track

Swedish House Mafia are on course to beat Adele to the Number One spot in the UK Official Singles Chart this Sunday (October 14).

The ’21’ singer’s official theme tune for the forthcoming new James Bond film, Skyfall, claimed the Number Four spot last week after shifting a staggering 48,000 copies in just 48 hours, and was strongly tipped to be this week’s best-seller.

But according to data from the Official Charts Company, Swedish House Mafia’s new track ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ featuring John Martin is currently outselling the Tottenham soul singer by nearly 22,000 copies. The song is taken from the indie dance giants’ forthcoming new album, ‘Until Now’, which will be their final LP.


Last week’s Number One, Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’, is currently at Number Three, with Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ and Leona Lewis and Childish Gambino’s collaboration ‘Trouble’ at Numbers Four and Five respectively.

In the UK Official Albums Chart, meanwhile, Ellie Goulding’s new LP ‘Halcyon’ looks set to take the Number One position from Muse, who are currently down at Number Three with ‘The 2nd Law’. Mumford & Sons’ ‘Babel’ is still at Number Two, with All Time Low’s ‘Don’t Panic’ at Number Four and Jeff Lynne’s ‘Long Wave’ at Number Five.
