Ed Sheeran likely to return to Number One in Official Album Chart
David Zowie is on course to reach Number One in the Official UK Singles Chart this week in its first brand new Friday slot.
‘House Every Weekend’ by the Kent based DJ and producer is leading the sales figures in today’s (July 8) midweek update.
The song leaps 51 places on today’s Official Chart Update following its full download release. ‘House Every Weekend’ entered the Top 75 last week on streams alone. However, Years & Years’ new single ‘Shine’ is close behind, currently at Number Two, and could beat Zowie to the top spot.
The traditional Sunday slot for the Official Chart Show ended last week (July 5) with Friday July 10 seeing Greg James hosting the show in its new 4pm Fridays timeslot on BBC Radio 1.
Meanwhile, the first Number One album of the new era looks set to belong to Ed Sheeran (pictured above).
Sheeran’s album ‘x’ is back at Number One today ahead of his upcoming Wembley Stadium gigs this weekend.
Also new in the Top 10 at today’s midweek point is Krept and Konan’s album ‘The Long Way Home’, new at Number Two, while Saint Raymond and Lucy Rose are new at Seven and Eight respectively.
Jack Savoretti’s Written in Scars climbs 29 places to re-enter the Update Top 40 at 16, trailed by new entry Ezra Furman’s ‘Perpetual Motion People’ (21).
The full chart rundown is announced on BBC Radio 1 this Friday (July 10).
