Headie One and Internet Money Duel for U.K. Singles Chart Crown

Very little separates Headie One and Internet Money in the early stages of the chart race.

Last week, it was the U.K. albums chart crown. This week, Headie One could add the national singles title.

With “Ain’t It Different,” the north London rapper takes an early lead in a tight chart race.

The song is lifted from Headie One’s debut LP Edna, which led the national albums chart last Friday with 25.5 million track streams, the OCC reports.

Featuring AJ Tracey & Stormzy, “Ain’t It Different” last week improved to a peak of No. 2, and it’s poised to go one better.

Nothing is guaranteed. U.S. rap collective Internet Money is close place behind with “Lemonade” featuring Gunna, Don Toliver & Nav. The margin after the weekend’s sales and streaming activity is just 123 combined sales.


Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus’ “Midnight Sky” is set for a new chart peak, rising 6-3 on the chart blast.

Further down the list, two songs are targeting some Top 20 action. Sam Smith’s “Diamonds” is up 23-15, and Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” improves 22-16.

It’s early days, but the highest new entry could come belong to Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco, as their ballad “Lonely” starts at No. 19 on the First Look survey.

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