The British rappers’ first ever collaboration Clash, taken from Dave’s upcoming album We’re All Alone In This Together, goes in at Number 4 on today (July 11)’s Official Chart: First Look. Should Clash’s momentum continue, it will mark Dave’s eighth UK Top 10 single and Stormzy’s 12th.
The Official Chart: First Look airs Sundays on BBC Radio 1 between 6pm – 7pm, offering a first glance of the Top 20 ahead of Friday’s Official Singles Chart Top 100. The chart is based on preliminary sales and early streaming reports.
On course for a third week at Number 1 is Ed Sheeran with Bad Habits, who is currently over 10,000 units ahead of the pack with the most streams and paid-for sales of the weekend. But should football come home for the first time in 55 years, then his lead could be all for naught.
Speaking of Ed, he co-wrote the new single from Korean boyband BTS called Permission To Dance, which after 48 hours of sales and streams enters the Official Chart: First Look at Number 5. The track could mark J-Hope, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook, RM, Suga and V’s fourth UK Top 10 hit following Dynamite, Life Goes On and Butter.

A third new release could also impact this week’s Official Singles Chart Top 10; Australian rising star The Kid Laroi has teamed up with Canadian hitmaker Justin Bieber for Stay at Number 7, the lead track from the former’s upcoming debut album F*CK LOVE (OVER YOU).
Finally, just outside the First Look Top 20 at Number 21 is Billie Eilish with her new single NDA.
