The race for this week's Official Number 1 single is set to be a nail biter, as Jack Harlow overtakes former front-runners The Beatles in today's update.

Last week Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, made Official Chart history with their 'last' ever single Now And Then; debuting at the summit and smashing some incredible records in the process.

But, while early indications suggested The Beatles could clinch a second consecutive week at the top, Jack's brand-new track Lovin On Me has since sprinted ahead of the group.

The Kentucky-born rapper, full name Jackman Thomas Harlow, now tracks for his first-ever Official Number 1 single midweek, now sitting 1,600 chart units ahead of The Fab Four; his closest competitor at Number 2.

It's by no means a done deal, though, as Dua Lipa's Houdini is hot on the fellas' heels.

Currently eyeing a Number 3 debut, fewer than 900 chart units currently separate Dua's Houdini from The Beatles.

Should Jack retain his lead this week, he'll claim his first-ever Official UK Number 1 single.

Previously, Jack's achieved Top 10 tracks with 2021 Lil Nas X collaboration Industry Baby (3), 2022 track First Class (2) and, most recently, Jung Kook team-up 3D (5).

This comes as The Beatles track for their 16th Official Number 1 album with 1967-1970 (commonly known as 'The Blue Album') this week.

A reissued version of the group's second iconic hits compilation, which now includes Dolby Atmos-remastered tracks, rarities and new track Now And Then, looks set the reach the Official Albums Chart summit for the first time this Friday, November 17.

The Fab Four's 1962-1966 collection ('The Red Album'), also reissued across multiple digital and physical formats this week, also looks set to reach a new peak of Number 2 on Friday. The record originally reached a high of Number 3 upon its release in 1973.

Who do you want to see claim this week's Official Number 1 single? Are you Team Jack, Team The Beatles or Team Dua? Be sure to listen to this week's countdown on The Official Chart with Jack Saunders, this Friday from 4pm on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Sounds.
