    And there wasn't a big single on the last one like My Universe so Kuba is probably half-right about the BTS reach.
    Exactly! Because they aren't really "coldplay" songs. That's why they got Max Martin and other hit makers songwritters (to make sure they would have a hit album) and commercially speaking it worked. On critics not so much as they are having mixed reviews.

    and they have 3 top 20 singles from it, previous album had 1 top 40 song. And yes it's far more pop than previous one. Shame there's no gem like Midnight there

    Coldplay's Music of the Spheres set to become the band's ninth Number 1 album with big midweek sales

    Plus there could be Top 10 entries from The Beatles, The Charlatans and Kylie Minogue.
    By George Griffiths
    Coldplay are kicking off a bumper quarter four schedule in impressive fashion this week, with Music of the Spheres on course to enter the Official Albums Chart at Number 1.

    Over the coming weeks, brand new albums by Adele, Ed Sheeran and ABBA will turn 2021 into the hottest Christmas release line-up for many years - and Coldplay's ninth album has well and truly kicked the season off, after shifting more than 81,000 chart sales over the weekend to lead an all-new Top 6 in today's Official Chart Update.



    As a result, Music of the Spheres has already surpassed the current fastest-selling album of the year, Dave’s We’re All Alone In This Together, which amassed 74,000 chart sales in its opening week in July.

    It is also on course to become the first album to surpass 100,000 chart sales in a week since Ed Sheeran’s No. 6 Collaborations project sold 125,000 in July 2019. The last time an album topped 80,000 chart sales in a week was Coldplay’s previous studio album Everyday Life, totalling just under 81,000 chart sales in November 2019.



    Music… is set to be Coldplay’s ninth Number 1 album, extending their unbroken run of chart-topping studio albums, in order - Parachutes (2000), A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002), X&Y (2005), Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008), Mylo Xyloto (2011), Ghost Stories (2014), A Head Full of Dreams (2015) and Everyday Life (2019).

    Meanwhile, the brand new Super Deluxe Edition reworking of The Beatles’ classic last album Let It Be sends it to Number 2 midweek, putting the project on course for its first Top 10 placing in 50 years – aside from the “alternative mix” Let It Be… Naked which reached Number 7 in November 2003.

    In turn, Daniel O’Donnell’s celebratory 60 is currently at Number 3 and will become the singer’s 19th Top 10 collection if it stays on track. The Charlatans’ brand-new greatest hits collection A Head Full of Ideas is currently at Number 4, while South London singer and songwriter Joy Crookes rounds off the Top 5 with Skin.

    Elsewhere in the midweek Top 10, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes could earn their third Top 10 album with Sticky at Number 6, and Kylie Minogue’s Fever is at Number 9 thanks to a 20th anniversary re-issue for National Album Day.

    Adele also continues to climb in today’s Update as the release of her fourth album 30 nears; while 25 remains at 7, 21 jumps up four places to 10 and 19 is up 40 spots to Number 14.

    Outside the Top 10, Warsop folk-punk band Ferocious Dog could secure a place at Number 11 with The Hope, and Amy Winehouse’s Back To Black flies to Number 19 following a National Album Day picture disc release.

    Other new and re-entries set to land in this week’s Top 40 include OMD’s The Architecture and Morality Singles (21), viral sensation PinkPantheress’ debut album To Hell With It (22), US rapper Young Thug’s second album Punk (23), and Garbage’s self-titled 1995 debut album (24) which also enjoys an uplift thanks to National Album Day.

    English singer-songwriter Thea Gilmore could have two new entries this Friday, with side-project Afterlight (28) [not a side-project, it's just her under a new name] and The Emancipation of Eva Grey (36).

    Finally, Primal Scream’s Demodelica is on course to land at Number 30, and Sufjan Stevens and De Augustine’s collaborative album A Beginner’s Mind is heading for Number 33.

    My thoughts after listening First Look Chart since long long time, that music in the charts nowadays is shit as hell.... just look at the titles: (Uh Oh), (La Di Da), (Ah Ah Ah)....really listening full top 20 is a torture (and still they've skipped Visiting Hours thankfully). Thank god for Cold Heart and Easy On Me that at the end I didn't commint a suicide

    It was at number 65 on Tuesday, up from 74 on Monday. I expect the track to be top 60 when the new chart is revealed today.

    Can't believe Drake still have streaming enough to be #02 in UK.
    In US I get it but in UK...? Who listen to his songs? Some are kind of cool but his new album is garbage... not Garbage (I love Garbage)... is trash...

    Shivers is having more streaming... but is quite behind on sales.
    Let's not forget that even having less streaming "Cold Heart" have various version on both sales and streams (with insignificant streams but enough).

    I streamed "Cold Heart" today 40 times (all different versions in total) with UK VPN on so that it would count for UK Charts... I'm tired of Ed Sheeran dominating the charts - he will return to #01 almost for certain the week his album is out.

    Next week Adele is #01 almost for sure and I doubt "Cold Heart" can be #01 on the week Elton John album is out (not impossible but unlikely).

    Does anyone knows if today Madonna new live album is on TOP 100 Albums?

    I know it's not very likely since it was released only on digital sales and streams and she is an artist that started in the 80's (and in UK the live album isn't doing as well on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify as in other countries European countries) but looking at so low sales numbers on the album charts inside the TOP 10 my hopes got higher that her album would chart even without a physical release.
