Madonna may have stumbled at this year’s BRIT Awards, but her new single Living For Love is carrying her up this week’s Official Singles Chart, OfficialCharts.com can reveal.
After less than two days on sale, the singer’s latest release is currently placed at Number 26, according to today’s Official Charts Company sales flash (February 27). She's just over 1,000 chart sales away from the Top 20, while another 10,500 would see her enter the Top 10.
The last minute entry means she is set to earn her 71st UK Top 40 hit on Sunday’s chart. Her last entry was in 2012 with her Nicki Minaj and MIA collaboration Give Me All Your Luvin’, which peaked at Number 37. Click here to view Madonna’s full week-by-week UK chart history.
Living For Love was released on Wednesday ahead of her appearance at this year’s BRIT Awards – her first at the ceremony in 20 years.
The star faced difficulty during her performance of the song, which closed the show, after she fell due to her cape failing to untie.
Living For Love serves as the lead single from Madonna’s 13th studio album Rebel Heart, which follows on March 9.
