Lorde's 'Solar Power' Heats Up U.K. Chart Race

This week's U.K. singles chart will be solar powered.

Lorde is on track for the highest new entry on the Official U.K. Singles Chart with her comeback track "Solar Power".

The New Zealand singer and songwriter's first song in four years starts at No. 7 on the First Look chart, which gauges the popularity of singles after the first 48 hours of the chart cycle.

"Solar Power" has notched over half a million streams since its release on Friday (June 11), the Official Charts Company reports.

If it keeps its momentum, "Solar Power" will give Lorde just her second U.K. Top 10 single, and first since her debut "Royals" blasted to No. 1 back in 2013.

Also new to the chart blast is TikTok star Mimi Webb's "Dumb Love," at No. 11. It's not Webb's only chance for chart glory. The British newcomer's breakthrough "Good Without" is on course for a new peak at No. 6.

At the pinnacle of the chart blast is Olivia Rodrigo's "Good 4 U," which is on track for a fourth consecutive week at No. 1. Rodrigo made chart history last Friday with three concurrent Top 5 singles, becoming the first female solo artist to do so.

The Official U.K. Singles Chart is published late Friday local time.
