U.K. MIDWEEKS: TINA & TAYLOR TIME
5/30/23

Two Tina Turner albums are heading for the U.K.’s Official Albums Top 10 as fans mourn the death of the singer. Over on singles, Taylor Swift has three tracks in the Top 10.

Turner’s greatest hits compilation, The Platinum Edition Collection (Parlophone), is set to land at #8 on Friday. The album peaked at #14 in 2009. It could be joined at #10 by Foreign Affair, which hit the top of the chart in 1989.

Two more Turner albums are in today’s midweek Top 40: The Collected Recordings at #12 and Private Dancer at #31.

At the top of the albums chart, Lewis Capaldi looks set for a second week at #1 with Broken by Desire To Be Heavenly Sent (EMI). Swift’s Midnights (EMI) is up eight places to #2 following the release of the Til Dawn Edition.

This week’s highest new entry could be Simply Red’s Time (Rhino), starting at #4. Arlo Parks My Soft Machine (Transgressive) is another high new entry, at #5, followed by Sparks The Girl Is Crying in Her Latte (Island) at #6.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, “Karma” from Swift’s new edition of Midnights looks set to rise 65 places to #2 thanks to its Ice Spice remix. “Hits Different” is a new entry at #8, and the rerecording of “Snow on the Beach” f/Lana Del Rey is also new, at #10.

“Miracle” (Columbia) by Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding is on track to remain at #1 for an eighth week.

J Hus could have Friday’s highest new entry, with “It’s Crazy” (Black Butter) starting at #6. “Dance the Night” (Atlantic) by Dua Lipa from the Barbie soundtrack looks set to debut at #16, while Kylie Minogue’s “Padam Padam” (BMG) could crack the Top 20 at #18.
