Mabel is leading the race for the UK’s Number 1 album this week, as she eyes up her first-ever UK Number 1 album with pop-tastic record About Last Night…

Centred around a house party, the second studio album from the 26-year-old star follows on from two previous Top 40 collections; 2018 EP Ivy To Roses (28) and 2019 debut LP High Expectations (3). See Mabel’s full Official Chart history here.

But there’s still all to play for, as beabadoobee’s Beatopia tracks for a Number 2 debut this week, currently the biggest release of the week on physical formats. The Filipino-British singer-songwriter, born Beatrice Laus, could enjoy a career best with her second studio album. Debut record Fake It Flowers reached Number 8 in 2020. 

The UK’s current Number 1 album, Harry’s House by Harry Styles is also in contention at Number 3 midweek.
