Dua Lipa's Houdini closes in on Jack Harlow's Lovin On Me in Number 1 single race
Earlier this week, The Beatles' Now And Then looked set to earn a second consecutive week at the summit as Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr took an early lead.

Today's sales flash shows Dua to be closing in on Jack's possible first-ever Number 1 single, with 4,500 UK chart units separating the two tracks.
Meanwhile, The Beatles' Now And Then looks set to slip to Number 4 this week, with cassö, RAYE and D-Block Europe's unstoppable Prada holding steady in the Top 5; expected to land at Number 3 this Friday.
Should Jack retain his lead, he'll secure his first-ever Official UK Number 1 single this week.
Meanwhile, Dua Lipa is on course to net her 14th Official Top 10 single this Friday.
Of those, Dua boasts four Official Number 1 singles to date: 2017's New Rules, 2018 Calvin Harris collab One Kiss, 2021 release Cold Heart alongside Elton John and, most recently, 2022's Dance the Night.
