New York rapper 6ix9ine is on track to land a second UK Top 10 hit in the space of a month as new Nicki Minaj collaboration Trollz opens as the week’s highest new entry at Number 5.
Trollz is the follow-up to Gooba - 6ix9ine’s first single since being released early from prison under house arrest amid coronavirus concerns. The track could also mark Minaj’s 13th Top 10 outing in the UK, and highest charting song since 2018’s Woman Like Me with Little Mix.
The pair are donating a portion of the proceeds from sales of the song to the Bail Project which provides free bail assistance to low-income individuals to protect and support those working on the front lines of social justice, using their voices to demand an end to the targeting of Black Americans by the police.
Viral hit and reigning chart topper Rockstar by DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch’s looks set for a fifth non-consecutive week at the top of the Official Singles Chart, with Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande’s Rain On Me also a non-mover, just behind in second place midweek.
A one-place climb and new peak position is on the cards for German/Croatian DJ/producer Topic ft. A7S with Breaking Me (3), the song has enjoyed an unbroken 10-week ascent up the chart.
Potential new peaks this week also on the horizon for Regard & Raye with Secrets, up one place to 11 after the first 48 hours, while Harry Styles also journeys one spot north with latest single Watermelon Sugar (14). Check out the Official Chart First Look Top 20 in full below:
