U.K. MIDWEEKS: WILL LIAM TIE NOEL?
5/30/22

Liam Gallagher is on course to tie his brother Noel with 11 U.K. #1 albums while Harry Styles is eyeing a ninth consecutive week at #1 at singles.

Gallagher’s third solo studio album, C’Mon You Know (Warner), is #1 on the Official Albums Chart at the midweek mark. He’s hit #1 seven times with Oasis and three times as a solo act, most recently with 2020’s MTV Unplugged. Gallagher’s live set, Down By The River Thames, a recording of his December 2020 lockdown livestream also released on Friday, sits at #3 midweek.

Meanwhile at #4, Def Leppard’s 12th studio album, Diamond Star Halos (UMC), is on track to give them their first Top 5 album in 26 years. Will Young’s 20 Years: The Greatest Hits (Sony Music CG) is #5 and is likely to become his 10th Top 10 album.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, Tate McRae’s I Used to Think I Could Fly (RCA) looks set to debut at #7, and Sex PistolsThe Original Recordings (UMC), a collection of 1976-1978 works, eyes a #8 entry. The release precedes this Friday’s re-release of 1977’s “God Save The Queen” and Pistol, Danny Boyle’s biopic of the group’s guitarist Steve Jones, on Disney+.

The vinyl release of Doja Cat’s Planet Her (RCA) pushes the set up 11 places to #10 and the debut of the ABBA Voyage show in London has led to Gold: Greatest Hits (Polydor) rising to #11 and 2021’s Voyage (Polydor) to #28.

At singles, Styles’ “As It Was” (Columbia) appears to not be leaving its perch. Right behind it is Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” (Atlantic) at #2 and Cat Burns’ “Go” (RCA) at #3. Ed Sheeran’s newest, “2 Step’ (Atlantic), could enter the Top 10 for this first time this Friday; it’s currently #9.

Ella Henderson may be in the Top 20 twice this week: “Crazy What Love Can Do” (Warner) with David Guetta and Becky Hill is #12 and “21 Reasons” (Warner) with Nathan Dawe is #16. “Potion” (Columbia) from Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa f/Young Thug is the highest new midweek entry at #14.
