Fresh from scoring a UK Top 5 single with Midnight Sky, Miley Cyrus releases Prisoner featuring Dua Lipa, the second single from her upcoming seventh studio album Plastic Hearts, out November 27. Judging from the trailer, the track will be a gritty affair with a gory and provocative music video… and we all know no one does provocation as good as Miley.
It’s surprising that Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber haven’t teamed up before now, but the Canadian heartthrobs unite for Monster, the second single taken from Shawn’s highly-anticipated album Wonder, which drops December 4. The album’s title was a UK Top 20 hit for Shawn, while Justin will be looking to score his seventh Top 40 hit of 2020.
Other acts with new tracks out this week Marina, Sam Smith, Ava Max, Sia, Mabel, Iann Dior and Jason Derulo.
On the albums front, BTS will be looking to claim their second UK Number 1 album of 2020 with BE. The group’s fifth Korean-language studio album features their highest-charting track to date Dynamite (which peaked at Number 3 on the Official Singles Chart) and new single Life Goes On.
Michael Ball & Alfie Boe have scored three Top 3 albums as a pair, two of which went to Number 1, so no pressure for their fourth record – and first festive offering – Together at Christmas, which if their previous releases are anything to go by, will be a consistent seller across the entirety of Q4.
Other albums out this week come courtesy of Megan Thee Stallion, Josh Groban, Saint Jhn, Jamie Cullum, Tim Minchin, The Cribs and Raye.
