Three tracks from J. Cole’s new album The Off-Season are heading for big debuts on this week’s Official Singles Chart.
On the midweek Official Chart: First Look, the North Carolinian rapper is locked on for the highest new entry with 9 5 . S O U T H at Number 9, which would mark his second UK Top 10 single.
Other album highlights set for singles chart success are M Y . L I F E ft. 21 Savage & Morray at 10, and A M A R I at 11. The album’s lead single I N T E R L U D E reached 25 on last week’s Top 40.
The Official Chart: First Look airs Sundays on BBC Radio 1 between 6pm – 7pm, offering a first glance of the Top 20 ahead of Friday’s Official Singles Chart Top 100. The chart is based on preliminary sales and early streaming reports.
On course for a third week at Number 1 are Tion Wayne & Russ Millions with Body, the most-streamed track across the first 48 hours of the tracking period. The song has also reached Number 1 in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
Ahead of her debut album release this coming Friday (May 21), Olivia Rodrigo’s new single Good 4 U is on track for a Top 20 placement, currently at Number 14.
Finally, BRIT Awards momentum continues for Rag’n’Bone Man & Pink, as Anywhere Away From Here ascends three places midweek (6), and Rising Star Award winner Griff is the First Look’s highest climber, as Black Hole rockets 16 places (19).
