Ed Sheeran on course to claim seventh UK Number 1 single with Beautiful People ft. Khalid

Plus Ed is set to have three entries in this week's Top 5 following the release of his No.6 Collaborations Project.

Welcome to the first Official Chart: First Look, which launches today (July 14) and offers an early glimpse of how the Official Singles Chart is shaping up.

The First Look provides the earliest possible glance at the Official Singles Chart based on early sales and stream reports - ahead of the regular weekly Friday rundown hosted by Scott Mills. 

The Top 20 chart will be posted on OfficialCharts.com every Sunday, while the First Look show will air on BBC Radio 1 between 6pm-7pm, hosted by Cel Spellman and Katie Thistleton.

Highlights from this week's Top 20 are:

Ed Sheeran’s Beautiful People ft. Khalid is at Number 1 and is on course to become Ed’s seventh UK chart-topper, this Friday.

Following the release of Ed’s No.6 Collaborations Project, two more songs from the album are set to land in this week’s Top 5: Remember the Name ft. Eminem & 50 Cent (3) and Take Me Back To London ft. Stormzy (4).

Update (July 15): How Ed's No.6 Collaborations Project is performing in the UK this week.

A new remix of Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy ft. Justin Bieber could send it back into this week’s Top 20, currently up ten places to 13.

New entry for Krept & Konan’s I Spy ft. Headie One & K-Trap at Number 20.
