Ed Sheeran and Stormzy on course for Number 1 single

Plus Taylor Swift could have three songs in the Top 20 this week.

The Official Chart: First Look, which is broadcast on BBC Radio 1 today between 6pm – 7pm, offers 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.

Here's how the week is shaping up so far:

Ed Sheeran is on course to gain a third Number 1 single from his chart topping No.6 Collaborations Project album (following I Don’t Care and Beautiful People) as his track Take Me Back To London featuring Stormzy leads the First Look chart. 

Taylor Swift’s new album Lover is out this week and three tracks from it appear in the Top 20 of the Official Chart: First Look; title track Lover leaps to 9, The Man is at 13 and Cruel Summer is at 16.

Headie One’s Both could climb into the Top 20, currently at 15 on the First Look chart.
