The Weeknd Eyes Sixth Week at No. 1 In U.K. With ‘Blinding Lights’

The Weeknd is on target for a return to No. 1 with “Blinding Lights,” while Dua Lipa could land a hattrick inside the top 10.

“Blinding Lights” is in position for a sixth non-consecutive week at No. 1. It’s leading the Official Chart First Look, which compiles sales and streaming data from last weekend, with SAINt JHN’s “Roses” dropping one place from the summit.

Following the release of her new album Future Nostalgia, Dua Lipa races out early with a No. 3 for “Physical,” No. 4 with “Don’t Start Now” and “Break My Heart” is new at No. 7.

Girl group Little Mix has the highest new entry in the early stages of the chart week with “Break Up Song,” at No. 5.

Finally, grime artists Skepta and Chip team up with D-Block Europe’s Young Adz on Insomnia, which could unleash three tracks in the top 40, led by “Waze” at No. 13 on the Official Chart First Look.

The Official U.K. Singles and Albums Charts are published late Friday local time.
