    Beyonce's RENAISSANCE challenged by Eminem's Curtain Call 2 for Official Albums Chart Number 1

    Beyoncé's chart-topping seventh studio album faces some tough competition from Eminem's second hits collection Curtain Call 2 this week
    By Carl Smith
    The race for the UK’s Number 1 album is already heating up; as Beyoncé and Eminem are currently duking it out to see who will triumph at the top of the Official Albums Chart this Friday

    Last week saw Beyoncé score her fourth solo chart-topping LP in the UK with the disco-indebted RENAISSANCE, joining Dangerously In Love (2003), 4 (2011) and Lemonade (2016). At the mid-week stage, Bey could be set to score a second week at Number 1...but she has some serious competition in the form of Eminem.

    It’s none other than Slim Shady who's hot on the superstar’s heels with Curtain Call 2, the sequel to his 2005 greatest hits compilation Curtain Call: The Hits, which has spent an incredible 512 weeks on the Official Albums Chart to date.

    Less than 100 chart units currently separate Beyoncé and Eminem in our Official Chart Update, so it’s still all to play for. Can Bey hold on for a second consecutive week, or will Marshall Mathers secure his 11th UK Number 1 album? Keep your eyes peeled on OfficialCharts.com for more updates as they come...

    Calvin Harris also eyes a Top 5 entry with his sixth studio record Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2. The album, which sees the Scottish producer team up with the likes of Dua Lipa, Normani and Charlie Puth, could become Calvin’s fifth Top 5 to date, following 2009’s Ready for the Weekend (1), 2012 release 18 Months (1), 2014 LP Motion (2) and 2017 album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 (2).

    ABBA’s chart mainstay ABBA Gold: Greatest Hits enjoys a midweek boost as the Swedish superstars announce a 30th Anniversary Edition of the album (6). Set to be released on September 23, the reissue will see the ABBA Gold collection available on brand-new formats – including special 2LP picture disc - for the first time.

    Becky Hill’s Only Honest on the Weekend is also set to surge back into the Top 10 this week (10), already up 16 places following her performance at the 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro Final Show and the release of brand-new Joel Corry collaboration HISTORY. Meanwhile, Elvis Presley’s ELV1S – 30 Number 1 Hits collection could continue its ascent as Baz Luhrmann-directed biopic Elvis wows audiences (11).

    Four-piece metal group Dub War could be heading for their first-ever UK Top 20 album this week with third studio LP Westgate Under Fire. The Welsh group, comprising Benji Webbe, Mikee Gregory, Jeff Rose and Richie Glover, currently track for Number 12 after a weekend of sales.

    Neil Young and Promise of the Real look set to claim a Top 20 debut with live album Noise & Flowers this week; an LP recorded during their 2019 European tour (14). Meanwhile, American ska group The Interrupters could mark their first-ever appearance on the Official Albums Chart with fourth studio album In the Wild (17).

    Sitting just outside the Top 20 midweek is Heather Small, the voice of English dance group M People, aims to land her second Top 40 solo album with Colour My Life (21).

    Oxford-formed indie rock outfit Glass Animals could see their 2020 Number 2-peaking record Dreamland re-enter the Top 40 following the release of a special anniversary edition featuring new artwork and format availability (27).

    London eight-piece collective KOKOROKO look set to enjoy their first-ever Top 40 album with Could We Be More this week (28). The rising group will discuss the LP on The Record Club with host Jess Iszatt, this Wednesday August 10 at 6.30pm.



    Swedish death metallers Amon Amarth eye up a third UK Top 40 album placing with The Great Heathen Army (30). Meanwhile, Australian DJ Mall Grab could score his first with debut work What I Breathe (33).

    And finally, Tool’s Fear Inoculum could return to the Top 40 this week thanks to a deluxe vinyl release (36). The LA rockers’ fifth studio album originally peaked at Number 4 upon its release in 2019.

    This was a smart move, release the remixes on the peak week for streaming to get an higher peak. Will it be enough?

    So Harry and George (and of course Beyonce) have all increased compared to Wednesday last week and so may be reset.....!
    Apparently less data is missing this week, so may still be a decline for Harry and George....

    it is - see iTunes thread. But there isn't the same frenzy for it as it directly refers to the men's game. They did play it after the win at Wembley but Sweet Caroline is more popular.

    But other artists can sell more than that as we've seen. Maybe they didn't manufacture many CDs as they expected her to do best on streams. It's not really a typical mainstream Bey album. There's no big world-conquering radio hit on it. Asda don't even have it in stock so how are casual buyers even supposed to find it? https://groceries.asda.com/search/cd...arch-cd&page=1

    Beyonce sets sight on fourth UK Number 1 album with RENAISSANCE currently outselling the Top 5

    With BREAK MY SOUL also flying up the Official Singles Chart - can Bey secure an Official Charts Double this week?
    By George Griffiths
    Beyoncé’s chart RENAISSANCE continues in abundance today – as her seventh solo record sets its sights on becoming her fourth UK Number 1 album.

    RENAISSANCE is currently out-selling the rest of the Top 5 combined, with its lead single BREAK MY SOUL also currently challenging for the UK’s Number 1 single. Could Bey claim the Official Chart Double this week?

    The US superstar has previously topped the Official Albums Chart on three occasions as a solo artist; with debut LP Dangerously in Love (2003), 4 (2011) and magnum opus Lemonade (2016). As a member of Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé also counts Survivor (2001) as a chart-topping album. Discover Beyoncé’s Official Charts history in full here.

    Maggie Rogers’ expectation-defying second album Surrender is on track to become her first-ever Top 10 record in the UK this week (3), while electronic duo Orbital could net their fourth Top 10 album with 30 Something (5).

    Wakefield indie-rock outfit The Cribs’ re-release of their first three albums might see them net a hat-trick of Top 10 entries this week; Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever (4) has the potential to become their highest-charting album ever, followed-up by The New Fellas (7) and The Cribs (8).

    Elsewhere, Kate Bush’s greatest hits collection The Whole Story could re-enter the Top 40 (23), as could The Chemical Brothers’ special 25th anniversary re-issue of their second LP Dig Your Own Hole (26). Both albums peaked at Number 1 upon their original releases in 1986 and 1997 respectively.

    And finally, US country-rock outfit Whiskey Myers’ sixth album Tornillo could become their first-ever entry in the UK Official Chart Top 40 (36).

    Pleased to see Paolo hanging on in the top 10.

    As per, there's more than a handful of legacy or hits albums in the top 40, the staying power of albums like Legend, Gold and Rumours is astounding.
