U.K. MIDWEEKS: DOUBLE THE FUN FOR HARRY

Harry Styles is in line to register his second chart double—#1 on both the Official Albums and Singles charts—as Post Malone eyes the week’s highest debut at albums and a couple of decades-old singles are Top 5-bound.

Should Harry’s House (Columbia) return to #1, it would be the first record to score a second week at #1 this year. “As It Was” is still #1 as it vies for a 10th consecutive week at the top.

Malone’s fourth studio album, Twelve Carat Toothache (Island), sits at #2 midweek and is positioned to be Posty's fourth consecutive U.K. Top 10 LP.

Other contenders for Top 10 debuts are Prince & the Revolution–Live (Sony Music CMG) at #6, a 10th anniversary edition of You Me at Six’s Sinners Never Sleep (Virgin) at #7 and Angel Olsen’s Big Time (Jagjaguwar) at #10. It would be Olsen's first U.K. Top 10 record. Queen’s Greatest Hits (Parlophone), fresh off its record-setting chart week, is up to #11.

At singles, two tracks that first charted many decades ago are headed for Top 5 landings this week. Kate Bush’s 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill” (Fish People) is eyeing a six-slot jump to #2 thanks to its use in Netflix’s Stranger Things. The Sex Pistols’ two new vinyl pressings of “God Save the Queen” (UMC) has Johnny Rotten & company eyeing a return to the Top 5 for the first time in more than 40 years; the song hit #2 back in 1977.

Sam Ryder’s Eurovision anthem “SPACE MAN” (Parlophone) is up two to #9 following his performance at the Platinum Party at the Palace concert during the Queen’s Jubilee.

Malone’s “I Like You (A Happier Song)” is most likely the week’s highest new entry; its currently #19.
