    Sam Ryder's SPACE MAN closes gap on Harry Styles in race to Number 1 on the Official Chart following Eurovision success

    As the country rallies behind Sam Ryder, could the UK Eurovision hero end Harry Styles' six-week reign atop the Official Chart?
    By Carl Smith
    UK Eurovision hero Sam Ryder has closed the gap on Harry Styles overnight in the race to become this week's Official UK Number 1 single, the Official Charts Company can confirm.

    After placing second to Ukraine's Kalush Orchestra and their winning track Stefania in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 last weekend, Essex singer and songwriter Sam Ryder continues to rocket up the midweek Official Singles Chart with SPACE MAN.

    Sam scored 466 points at this year's competition in Turin, proving the UK's most successful entry since Imaani's Where Are You in 1998, and today closes the gap on Harry Styles in the increasingly-tight race for this week's Official Number 1 single.

    A very special Official Charts Company update today shows Sam has rocketed overnight past Cat Burns and her hit Go, and now currently sits at Number 2. Just 1,880 chart sales separate SPACE MAN from Harry Styles' Number 1 As It Was. Will Sam be able to catch up? It's all to play for before the Official Chart is unveiled this Friday on BBC Radio 1, but unlike Eurovision, it's the British public alone who will decide this one.

    Could Sam end Harry's six-week reign at the top and boast the first Eurovision song to hit Number 1 since Gina G's Ooh Aah...Just a Little Bit in 1996? If the UK continues to embrace SPACE MAN, there's no telling how far this song could go - in what is proving to be the most exciting chart race of the year so far.


    MORE: Sam Ryder 'couldn't be happier' with record-breaking Eurovision success


    As the country gets behind Sam in his bid for Number 1, a Top 5 position looks very likely indeed. Should he manage it, SPACE MAN would prove the first UK Eurovision entry to reach the Top 5 since Scooch's Flying the Flag (For You) back in 2007.

    Martin Talbot, CEO of the Official Charts Company, says: "The UK has gone Eurovision crazy this year, so it is fantastic to see Sam Ryder’s SPACE MAN making a genuine bid for Number 1 in the Official Chart this week.

    "And, just as the nation was cheering him on last Saturday, they will no doubt be cheering him on through the rest of this week too. Let’s hope he can go one better than his second place in Turin and lead the field in the UK’s Official Singles Chart.”

    Florence + The Machine heading for fourth UK Number 1 album with Dance Fever

    Plus new entries from Kendrick Lamar, The Black Keys, Bear's Den and Radiohead spin-off Smile.
    By George Griffiths
    Florence + The Machine look set to secure this week’s Number 1 album with Dance Fever.

    The fifth studio album from the English alt-rock group lead by Florence Welch, they previously topped the Official Albums Chart with Lungs (2009), Ceremonials (2011) and How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (2015).

    So far, Dance Fever is leading the charge with over 26,000 chart sales and is currently the best-selling album of the week in the UK, both physically and digitally. See Florence + The Machine’s Official Charts history in full here.

    Kendrick Lamar returns this week with Mr Morale & The Big Steppers, his first album in five years is the most-streamed album in the country of the week so far and set to debut at Number 2.

    The Black Keys are also on course for a fifth UK Top 10 album with Dropout Boogie (4), while British folk band Bear’s Den’s Blue Hours could become their highest-ever charting LP in the UK (5).

    Legendary rockers The Rolling Stones are also looking to add a 42nd Top 10 record to their collection with Live At The El Mocambo (7) and Radiohead spin-off band Smile’s debut album A Light For Attracting Attention could be the final new entry in the Top 10 this week (9).

    Outside the Top 10, Toyah Wilcox’s band Toyah have re-released their 1981 live album Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! (11), which could outperform its original chart position of Number 22. Further down the chart, Slipknot’s 2001 classic second album Iowa has gotten a retrospective 20th anniversary re-release and is tracking to enter the chart at Number 22, it originally peaked at Number 1.

    Finally, Elvis Presley’s greatest hits collection Elvis – 30 1 Number 1 Hits could re-enter the Top 40 at Number 37 as anticipation grows for the upcoming biopic of the rock’n’roll legend. It’s recently been announced that former Eurovision winners Maneskin will cover If I Can Dream for the film’s soundtrack.

    Eurovision: Sam Ryder SPACE MAN smashes into midweek Official Chart Top 5 - can it ride the wave all the way to Number 1?

    Sam's competition for Number 1 currently consist of Cat Burns and Harry Styles.
    By George Griffiths
    Sam Ryder's SPACE MAN continues it's exciting journey up the midweek Official Singles Chart post-Eurovision, breaking into the Top 5 and surging past its placement on yesterday's First Look.

    Yesterday, our Official Chart First Look saw SPACE MAN set to break into the Top 10 at Number 8 - the last Eurovision entry to score a Top 10 on the Official Chart was Scooch's Flying The Flag (For You) in 2007 (!).

    Following his second place finish at Saturday's Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Sam has the entire country behind him, and Official Charts Company data now sees SPACE MAN rocket up even further, smashing into the Top 5 and currently placing at Number 3. Keep track of Sam Ryder's Official Charts journey here.

    This means that right now, Sam is potentially on the road to a UK Number 1 single - but first has to beat competition from rising singer-songwriter Cat Burns and dominant chart force Harry Styles.
    MORE: Sam Ryder "couldn't be happier" with record-breaking Eurovision success


    SPACE MAN is already the most-downloaded song of the week in the UK so far, and it's current midweek chart position is yet to reflect a large proportion of post-Eurovision streams...which means that you could expect the song to rise further still overnight.

    Just 340 chart sales separate Sam at Number 3 from Cat Burns and Go at Number 2. A Top 5 finish for the track seems assured, but if Sam does want to challenge for that Number 1 spot, he will have to sustain his current momentum...and needs the country behind him to do so!

    If the UK does rally around Sam and nab him a consolation Official Chart victory this Friday, SPACE MAN would be the first Eurovision to hit Number 1 in the UK since Gina G's Ooh Ahh (Just A Little Bit) all the way back in 1996.

    Martin Talbot, CEO of the Official Charts Company says:

    “The UK has gone Eurovision crazy this year, so it is fantastic to see Sam Ryder’s SPACE MAN making a genuine bid for Number 1 in the Official Chart this week. And, just as the nation was cheering him on last Saturday, they will no doubt be cheering him on through the rest of this week too. Let’s hope he can go one better than his second place in Turin and lead the field in the UK’s Official Singles Chart.”

    Looks like Down Under and Make Me Feel Good are on ACR as expected...We will have to wait and see if the increase that was less than that of the market for Peru and Bam Bam last week is considered a decline (and hence DCL-2 and DCL-1 respectively) by whether Peru goes to ACR next week (assuming no increase again this week).

    ^ I suspect Robbie was just trying desperately to inject some greater excitement around the No 1 single by suggesting there might be some jeopardy of Mr Styles finally being topped! While to my ears 'As It Was' is infinitely superior musically and melodically to its nearest suitor and is therefore a more deserving chart-topper for me, there is no doubt that the whole upper tier of the chart has been seriously stagnant for some weeks now and more fresh entries, upward and downward motion would be welcomed whatever the relative quality of the tracks occupying those positions. It seems even ACR isn't suppressing some of these long-enduring hits. All feels a tad 2016 to me!

    Not that close on singles.

    On the week of Jack Harlow album release Harry Styles lead of 3k on Single charts is quite confortable - he will certainly be #01 again.

    Last week Harry was 5k ahead on Monday and ended the week 11k ahead.
    This week Harry is 3k ahead on Monday so will end the week 6k ahead most likely.

    Harry is still way ahead with 3 times more sales on iTunes at #02 in UK (Jack is #14 on iTunes) while on Spotify Harry Styles is #01 with over 25% more daily streams than Jack Harlow that is till at #02.

    Arcade Fire on track for fourth UK Number 1 album with WE

    Canadian alt-rock group Arcade Fire lead what looks set to be an all-new Official Albums Chart Top 5
    By Carl Smith
    Arcade Fire look to set to claim their fourth UK Number 1 album with WE this week.

    The Canadian alt-rock band – comprising Win Butler, Régine Chassagne, Richard Reed Parry, Tom Kingsbury and Jeremy Gara - currently lead a barrage of new entries midweek with their sixth studio album. To date, they boast three chart-topping albums in the UK; 2010’s The Suburbs, 2013 LP Reflektor and 2017’s supercharged Everything Now.


    MORE: See Arcade Fire's full Official Charts history


    Elsewhere in what’s on course to be an all-new Top 5, Sigrid sits at Number 2 midweek with her second studio album How to Let Go. Should it hold on, the album will prove a career-best for the Scandinavian star, following her 2019 Number 4 debut Sucker Punch.

    At Number 3, Soft Cell’s fifth studio album and first in over 20 years *Happiness Not Included could see the synth-pop duo return to the Top 5 for the first time since 1983. The record is also potentially on track to give the group – made up of Marc Almond and David Ball – their highest-charting album in their chart career that spans 40+ years.

    Also eyeing a Top 5 placing is London-born rapper Knucks, whose fourth release Alpha Place currently sits at Number 4. Meanwhile, Pennsylvanian rockers Halestorm look set for a Number 5 debut with their fifth record Back from the Dead.

    Meanwhile, Belle & Sebastian’s tenth studio album A Bit of Previous is on course to provide the Scottish indie group a career-high (6), Louisville rapper Jack Harlow also looks set to score his first UK Top 10 album with Come Home the Kids Miss You (8) and Californian rockers Warpaint also seek out a career-best peak with Radiate Like This, this group’s first album in six years (10).

    Great reviews.
    Perhaps although in fairness to Radio 1 on this one it was on that station that I first heard 'Levitation' - it's been spun a couple of times at least on Clara Amfo's 'Future Sounds' show weekdays from 6-8pm. In fact, despite the significant tide of trash that gets played on that programme, nowadays it is primarily through that source that I find out about better new releases which aren't getting played on most other channels; when I glance through my '2022 Singles' playlist the majority were first heard on 'FS' or its follow-on show 'Future Artists' with Jack Saunders. If you can stand all the dross (such as the new Drake single!), there are usually some worthwhile nuggets interspersed among it. Just don't expect any of them to ever make the Top 100 charts!

    I like most of Blossoms' songs but why have they gone all 1970s on us in their appearance?! Watching too many Harry Styles vids perhaps. I hope it's that as I really wouldn't want to see a mainstream return to flared trousers and frilly shirts.
