Saint Jhn on track for second week at Number 1 on the UK's Official Singles Chart with Roses

Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton could be back in the Top 40.

Saint Jhn is on course for a second week at Number 1 with Roses.

The New Yorker’s breakthrough hit has made a strong start on today's Official Chart: First Look and is nearly 4,000 chart sales ahead of The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights (2). In its 11 weeks on chart so far, Roses climbed for the first nine before spending two weeks at Number 2. It then nabbed the Number 1 last Friday by just 210 chart sales.

The Official Chart: First Look airs on BBC Radio 1 each Sunday between 6pm – 7pm and offers 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.

Dua Lipa’s latest song Physical could reach the Top 5 for the first time. Fresh from a new remix featuring K-pop star Hwa Sa, the second single from Dua’s upcoming album Future Nostalgia lifts to Number 5.

Following the release of his new album After Hours, The Weeknd has two more songs in the Top 20, with Alone Again at 14 and Too Late at 17.

We could see the Official Chart return for Kenny Rogers this week after the country legend’s passing on Friday (March 20). Based on early download and streaming figures, Kenny’s duet with Dolly Parton Islands in the Stream could make its first Top 40 appearance in over 36 years and is currently at Number 40. Solo song The Gambler is just outside at Number 43.

The Official Singles Chart is revealed here on OfficialCharts.com every Friday at 5.45pm. Listen to the Top 40 countdown live on BBC Radio 1's Official Chart show with Scott Mills every Friday from 4pm.
