Justin Bieber should get another taste of the U.K. top ten with “Yummy,” his comeback single.
The Canadian pop singer’s new tune, his first solo release in more than two years, opens at No. 8 on the Official U.K. Charts Company’s First Look survey, which compiles sales and streaming activity from the past weekend.
If it powers-on through the week, “Yummy” will be Bieber’s 18th top 10 in the U.K. It’s the first track lifted from the Bieber’s forthcoming fifth studio album, due out in 2020.
“Yummy,” however, is well off the pace set by Stormzy’s “Own It” (Atlantic/Merky), featuring Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy, which is heading for a second week at No. 1.
Also, Lewis Capaldi is enjoying a strong start to the chart year. The British singer has two tracks in the top 10, led by “Before You Go” (EMI) at No. 2 and “Someone You Loved” at No. 6, while “Bruises” is just outside the top 10, at No. 12.
The Official U.K .Singles and Albums Charts are published late Friday, local time.
