Kenya Grace's Strangers battles Doja Cat's Paint the Town Red for Number 1

Can Doja Cat make it a straight month at Number 1, or will Kenya Grace take Strangers to the top?
Kenya Grace and Doja Cat

In the week she releases fourth studio album Scarlet, Doja Cat could make it a straight month at Number 1 with Paint the Town Red. But, while she currently tracks for a fourth consecutive week at the top, Doja faces some tough competition from breakout British artist Kenya Grace.

Kenya Grace’s drum and bass-infused major label debut Strangers continues its speedy ascent up the Official Singles Chart, jumping one spot midweek to what could be a new peak (2). Might Kenya claim her first-ever UK Number 1 single on Friday?

Sussex-born singer-songwriter Tom Odell looks set to earn this week’s highest new entry, with Black Friday currently eyeing a Number 15 debut.

As blink-182 announce their ninth studio LP One More Time…, its title track could provide the rock group their highest-charting single in 19 years. ONE MORE TIME sits at Number 17 midweek.

Rising star Tyla looks set to break into the UK Top 20 for the first time with addictive Amapiano cut Water (20), as the track and its accompanying choreography challenge become a viral hit on social media. Read our exclusive interview with Tyla here.

Nice to see Sam Smith  , Peggy Gou and Tyla climbing this week.

Did expect Nanana to be on Acr this week so I am glad it hasn't 😊 yet!




So good to see DOJA CAT remaining at number 1 for a 4th week! And so well deserved 😊!




'Paint The Town Red' is definitely getting next week at the top with Doja's album boost. 

Happy for Kenya Grace in the runner-up postion though. Glad to see 'Strangers' continuing to move up the chart and challenging for #1! 




Woah, very surprised to see Tom Odell and Blink-182 among the new entries! 

I can't believe how some of the songs here like 'Cruel Summer' or '(It Goes Like) Nanana' haven't been hit by ACR yet. 




Good to see Tyla in the Top 20. Really starting to like 'Water' now! 😊
