The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights is on course to reclaim this week’s Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart.
The '80s-inspired track is currently back up one place to 1, knocking last week’s chart-topper, No Time To Die by Billie Eilish, down to 2. If Blinding Lights holds on until Friday, it'll be its third week at the summit. View The Weeknd's Official UK Chart history in full.
The Weeknd is set to land another Top 40 entry this week with the newly released After Hours, currently at Number 17. It’s the title track and third release from the Canadian’s upcoming album, which is out on March 20.
Elsewhere, Joel Corry is set to earn his second Top 10 single with Lonely, so far up seven places to Number 7. The British producer’s last single Sorry was a Top 10 hit last August. Earlier this month we asked Joel what his formula is for a dance-pop hit.
Following the release of their new album Map of the Soul: 7, BTS are on track to land their third UK Top 40 with On, currently at Number 8 and on course to be this week's highest new entry. There are two versions of the song on the 20-track collection, one of which features Sia.
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.
