U.K. MIDWEEKS: WEEK 2 AT #1 FOR BILLIE

Billie Eilish is looking at a second week at #1 on the U.K. Official Album Charts as When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (Interscope) sits 3,500 combined sales ahead of newcomer Out Of The Blue by Mike & The Mechanics.

Out Of The Blue (BMG) is currently leading the way on physical sales and if they hold their position, it will be their highest charting album since The Living Years reached #2 in 1988. Khalid’s Free Spirit (Right Hand/RCA) is offering a challenge, though, sitting just 700 combined sales behind Blue at #3.

Prolifica’s Circa Waves is also positioned for a Top 10 debut with What’s It Like Over There sitting at #6. Elsewhere, Idlewild’s Interview Music (Empty Words) is #11 and looks to become their fifth Top 20 album; Spying Through A Keyhole (Polygram), a vinyl boxset featuring nine previously unreleased David Bowie recordings, sits at #20. Blackpink‘s EP Kill This Love (YG/Interscope) is #25.

On the singles side, the original version of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” (Columbia) looks like it will make a significant leap into the Top 5 from #39. It is sitting at #4, surging since the release of a remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.

The top two are looking to go unchanged: Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” (Virgin EMI) at #1 for a seventh and Eilish's “Bad Guy” at #2. 

Elsewhere in the Top 10, Meduza f/Goodboys’ “Piece Of You Heart” (Polydor) is up four places to #6, and Khalid's “Talk” rises eight spots to #8.
