Taylor Swift’s ‘reputation’ on the Official Chart is set to become even more glowing this week as she sets course for her third Number 1 album.

The singer-songwriter’s sixth studio album is leading the way on today’s Official Chart Update and could exceed 100,000 sales this week, currently at just over 65,000 three days after it went on sale.

Taylor is all-but-certain to make it a hat-trick of Number 1 albums in the UK, following 2012’s Red and 2014’s 1989.

Reputation is currently outselling its closest competitor, Sam Smith’s The Thrill Of It All, by more than double. The album, which claimed the top spot last week, drops to Number 2.

Meanwhile, British rock band Shed Seven could claim their highest charting album yet this week as their fifth studio album, Instant Pleasures, starts at Number 3 on today’s update, while Michael Ball & Alfie Boe’s Together Again (4) and Roy Orbison’s A Love So Beautiful (5) round out the Top 5.

New entries and high climbers
Three more albums are on course to debut inside the Top 10 on this week’s Official Albums Chart: Tears For Fears’s Rule The World – The Greatest Hits is at 6, Elton John best of Diamonds is at 7, and The Corrs could earn their seventh Top 10 album with their new collection Jupiter Calling (10).

Cliff Richard is set to claim his 63rd Top 40 album with retrospective Stronger Thru The Years currently at 13, while Evanescene’s fourth collection Synthesis (14), Bradley Walsh’s When You’re Smiling (15) and Seal’s Standards (16) are all eyeing at Top 20 placing.

Further down, the Kidz Bop Kids 2018 collection opens at 25, a special 25th anniversary edition of REM’s Automatic For The People starts at 28, actor/TV presenter/singer Shane Richie is set to claim his first Top 40 album with A Country Soul currently at 29, and remastered box set of Metallica’s 1986 album Master Of Puppets is at 30.

LOL at Nick Knowles. Despite being stocked in supermarkets he'll be considerably lower than Bradley and Shane Richie. :lol:
Just above Cannibal Corpse at mo. :lol:

Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' Is Dominating the U.K.'s Midweek Chart
http://www.billboard.com/articles/colum ... week-chart
11/14/2017 by Lars Brandle

Taylor Swift’s reputation for dominating the U.K. albums chart should remain intact when the latest survey is published.

Swift’s sixth studio album Reputation (EMI) is heading for the summit of the Official U.K. Albums Chart, having sold more than 65,000 units in its first three days since release, according to the Official Charts Company. Chart analysts say Reputation could exceed 100,000 sales in week one, good enough for gold certification.

Reputation currently sits at No. 1 on the Official U.K. Albums Chart Update and is outselling its nearest competitor, Sam Smith’s The Thrill of it All (Capitol), by a ratio of 2:1. The U.S. singer-songwriter’s LP is “all-but-certain” to make it a hattrick of No. 1 albums in the U.K., notes the OCC, following 2012’s Red and 2014’s 1989.

Elsewhere on the midweek survey, Britpop-era act Shed Seven is on track for its highest charting album with Instant Pleasures (Infectious Music), their fifth studio set which starts at No. 3, while Michael Ball & Alfie Boe’s Together Again (Decca) and Roy Orbison’s A Love So Beautiful (Sony Music CG) with the The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra respectively complete the top 5.

Meanwhile, a trio of albums are on track to bow inside the top 10 as Tears For Fears’ Rule The World – The Greatest Hits (EMI) appears at No. 6, Elton John’s hits compilation Diamonds (Mercury/UMC) arrives at No. 7, and The Corrs’ seventh effort Jupiter Calling (Rhino) is at No. 10. Veteran British hitmaker Cliff Richard should snag his 63rd top 40 album with Stronger Thru The Years (Rhino), his retrospective collection which sits at No. 13.

On the Official Singles Chart Update, Camila Cabello's “Havana” (Epic/Syco Music) faces a stiff challenge from Rita Ora and Eminem, all of whom who shared the stage at the 2017 MTV EMAs, held Sunday (Nov. 12) night in London.

Cabello’s “Havana” featuring Young Thug is chasing a third week at the top with Rita Ora’s “Anywhere” (Atlantic) at No. 2 -- and 2,000 combined units adrift -- while Post Malone’s “Rockstar” (Republic Records) featuring 21 Savage dips 2-4 and Eminem’s comeback track “Walk On Water” (Interscope) featuring Beyonce gets a fast start at No. 4.

They are counting the ISRC based on the album UPC for streams? This means ISRCs from non-album products aren't counted for the album charts? Sorry, but did we actually know that all the time? :lol: I just knew this from Germany, not from the UK ...

Looking at the Album chart rules it appears that your interpretation is correct but the UK chart rules are almost deliberately vague in places that it is difficult to confrm this with 100% accuracy... but certainly a quick read through the rules seems to confirm what you have posted.
