Olivia Rodrigo leads the race to UK Number 1 with Good 4 U, plus big new entries for BTS and Little Mix

Plus huge climbs for Years & Years, Mimi Webb and Majestic.

Olivia Rodrigo looks set to score her second UK Number 1 single on Friday as Good 4 U takes the lead in this week’s Official Singles Chart race.

The Californian singer/songwriter and actress’s latest track entered the chart at Number 2 last week and is now on course to topple reigning chart lords Tion Wayne & Russ Millions as Body slips two places to Number 3 midweek.

Pop-punk hit Good 4 U is one of three tracks from Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album, Sour, that currently dominate the midweek Official Chart Top 10 after 48 hours; previous single Déjà Vu is at 5, while album opener Brutal starts the week at Number 10.



Olivia’s breakthrough chart smash Drivers License, which spent 9 weeks at Number 1 earlier this year, is the UK’s biggest single of 2021 so far. See Olivia Rodrigo’s UK chart history.

K-pop outfit BTS are on track to bag the UK’s highest new entry of the week as Butter opens at Number 2. 

Heartbreak Anthem - the new collaboration that sees Little Mix teaming up with Swedish production duo Galantis and DJ/producer David Guetta starts out inside the Official Chart First Look Top 10 at Number 8 – the second highest new entry of the week so far.

Elsewhere, a new entry for Anne-Marie and Niall Horan who join forces on new track Our Song (12).

Huge climbs are on the cards this week for 21 year-old British singer/songwriter Mimi Webb as Good Without jumps 13 places to Number 11, while Years & Years’ latest single Starstruck rockets 25 places following the release of a new remix with Kylie Minogue.

DJ/producer Majestic could be heading for a new peak position on the Official Chart on Friday, as his rework of Boney M’s Rasputin climbs six rungs to Number 16 so far in its ninth week in the Top 40. The tracks current best to date is Number 18.
 
And finally Coldplay’s Higher Power (20) climb 5 places back into the midweek Top 20 following their Glastonbury livestream appearance yesterday.

For the final results tune in to The Official Chart with Scott Mills on BBC Radio 1 this Friday from 4pm.
