Busted's Greatest Hits 2.0 vs. Olivia Rodrigo's GUTS: Who's tracking for Number 1 album?

Who do you want to see take the top spot?
Busted Olivia Rodrigo

We're witnessing a battle of the pop-rock purveyors right now, as Busted and Olivia Rodrigo go head-to-head in the race for this week's Official Number 1 album.

Reigning champ Olivia, who debuted at the summit with her second LP GUTS last week, could be knocked off her perch by Charlie Simpson, James Bourne and Matt Willis, whose Greatest Hits 2.0 is currently predicted to top the chart this Friday, September 22.

Though, in today's update, GUTS narrows the gap and sits fewer than 6,000 chart units behind Busted's collection; which includes reworkings of their biggest tracks with the likes of Jonas Brothers, James Arthur and their 20th Anniversary & Greatest Hits Tour support act Hanson.

Meanwhile, Olivia Rodrigo is set to take her catalogue on the road on 2024's GUTS world tour; joined by the likes of The Breeders, PinkPantheress, Chappell Roan, and Remi Wolf.
