Miley Cyrus' Flowers set for highest new single entry - can she deny RAYE a return to Number 1?

She came in like a wrecking ball.

RAYE’s path to reclaiming Number 1 this week just got a little tricky. While Escapism. is right now on track to return to the top of the Official Singles Chart, Miley Cyrus is coming in hot.

With her comeback single Flowers, Miley has her sights set on this week’s highest new entry (2), but can she go all the way and challenge RAYE for Number 1?

With production from Tyler Johnson and Kid Harpoon (Harry Styles' go-to collaborators for his solo material) and a buzzy new music video that sees Miley learn to get over her heartbreak and love herself, Flowers is set to be her eighth UK Top 10 single overall. 

Miley was last present in the Top 10 in 2020 with two singles from her Plastic Hearts album; Midnight Sky (5) and Dua Lipa collaboration Prisoner (8).

Creepin’ by producer Metro Boomin’ featuring The Weeknd and 21 Savage has been rising steadily over the last few weeks, and now it could finally leap into the Top 10 for the first time (10).

Dance hits are on the rise! Both Joel Corry & Tom Grennan’s Lionheart (Fearless) (16) and Tiesto & Tate McRae’s 10:35 (17) could reach new peaks.
