Looks like Ed's reign atop the albums chart is coming to an end, at least momentarily (with the OST selling 5.2k yesterday vs. Ed's 3.0k).

Can't believe he'll likely replace himself next week at #1 on the singles chart lol.

Plus the way streaming contributes to album sales, the more established albums seem to gain by the end of the week as more plays of more tracks are spread throughout the week. Ed seems to have gained quite a few album streaming sales at the end of the week quite a few times in recent months.

He may still end up at number 2! Though he'll probably still get at least another week or two at the top once the Brits take place on 21 February as he's favourite to win both the Best Male and Best Album categories...

Camila Cabello is on track to bag this week’s highest new entry on the Official Albums Chart.

The singer’s self-titled debut is currently at Number 2 on today’s Official Chart Update, behind The Greatest Showman soundtrack. Featuring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams, the album reached Number 1 last week and currently leads this week’s chart by 5,000 combined chart sales.

Meanwhile, Camila’s album – featuring five-week Number 1 smash Havana – could become her highest-charting album in the UK. She previously reached a high of Number 6 with Fifth Harmony on 2016’s 7/27.

New entries and high climbers
Also on course for their highest charting album yet are US rockers Black Veil Brides, who open at Number 10 with their fifth record Vale, while Scottish punk rock group The Skids, who have not released an album since 1981, look to impact the Top 20 with Burning Cities, their first album in over 37 years, at Number 13.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are racing towards a sixth UK Top 40 album with Wrong Creatures (16), American guitarist Joe Satriani could also earn his sixth Top 40 entry this Friday with What Happens Next (17), and Leo Sayer’s The Gold Collection is at Number 21.

Songs of Praise, the debut album from post-punk act Shame is new at Number 25, and one slot behind them are Australian rockers Tonight Alive; Underworld (26) could become their third UK Top 40 record this week.

Finally, heavy metal band Corrosion of Conformity sit at Number 38 with No Cross No Crown, which could be their first UK Top 40 album since 1996.

Eminem on course to claim ninth UK Number 1 single on the Official Singles Chart
Plus singles by Craig David, Sigrid and Camila Cabello are set for big climbs on this week's Official Singles Chart.

Eminem could be claiming his ninth UK Number 1 single this week as his latest single River sets course for the top spot on the Official Singles Chart.

The rapper's current track features Ed Sheeran and is taken from his latest album Revival, which topped the Official Albums Chart last month.

After three weeks at Number 2, River is set to topple Ed Sheeran's Perfect (2) from the top spot, currently 3,000 downloads and streaming equivalent sales ahead at the halfway stage of the chart week.

Eminem already claims the most Number 1 singles for a rap artist in the UK and could extend that record to nine this Friday (Jan 19). Eminem's previous Number 1s are: The Real Slim Shady (2000), Stan (2000), Without Me (2002), Lose Yourself (2002), Just Lose It (2004), Like Toy Soldiers (2005), Smack That (2006, with Akon), and The Monster (2013, with Rihanna).

Meanwhile, Craig David is set to leap up the Top 10 with I Know You ft. Bastille, currently up seven places to Number 3, Ramz's Barking holds firm at 4, and Jason Derulo's Tip Toe is currently up seven places and on track to break the Top 10 at Number 5.

New entries and high climbers
Two more singles are set to make their Top 10 debut this week: Jax Jones' Breathe ft. Ina Wroldsen jumps from 14 to Number 6, and Sigrid's Strangers vaults 86 places to Number 8 following her BBC Sound Of 2018 win.

Camila Cabello's latest effort Never Be The Same edges closer to the Top 10, up 16 spots to 13, Portugal The Man's Feel It Still lifts 11 places to 21, and Dua Lipa's IDGAF has so far climbed 12 places this week to Number 26.

Further down, BRITs Critics' Choice winner Jorja Smith could make her Top 40 debut with Let Me Down ft. Stormzy at Number 35, Andra Day's 2015 single Rise Up re-enters at 37 after its appearance on The Voice UK over the weekend, and rising star Tom Walker moves 13 places to 39 with Leave A Light On.

Eminem's 'River' Flows to the Top of Midweek U.K. Singles Chart
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... gles-chart
1/16/2018 by Lars Brandle

Shady really is back. Eminem is cruising to his ninth U.K. No. 1 single as “River” (Interscope) featuring Ed Sheeran flows to the head of the midweek survey.

The track, lifted from Em’s latest album Revival, which summited on the Official Albums Chart last month, is 3,000 downloads and streaming equivalent sales ahead of its nearest competitor, "Sheeran’s" “Perfect” (Asylum), at the halfway point in the chart cycle, the Official Charts Company reports.

Eminem’s eight No. 1 singles are the most for any rap artist in the U.K. His hit list includes “The Real Slim Shady” (2000), “Stan” (2000), “Without Me” (2002), “Lose Yourself” (2002), “Just Lose It” (2004), “Like Toy Soldiers” (2005), “Smack That” with Akon (2006) and “The Monster” with Rihanna (2013). “River” will join that roll and extend his record should it hold onto top spot when the Official Singles Chart is published on Friday.

Just behind “Perfect” is Craig David's “I Know You” (Speakerbox Recordings) featuring Bastille, up 10-3 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart Update; while, Ramz's “Barking” (Polydor) is unchanged at No. 4; Jason Derulo's “Tip Toe” (Warner Bros) featuring French Montana rises 12-5 and Jax Jones' ”Breathe” (Polydor) featuring Ina Wroldsen improves 14-6.

Norwegian newcomer Sigrid could cap a spectacular week with her first U.K. top 10. The singer’s “Strangers” (Island) soars 94-8 after she collected the BBC Sound of 2018, an accolade previously won by the likes of Adele, Sam Smith, Haim and Ellie Goulding.

Meanwhile, Camila Cabello has the highest new entry on the Official Albums Chart Update with her debut solo album Camila (Syco Music), which starts at No. 2 behind The Greatest Showman (Atlantic) soundtrack.

Camila could become the pop singer’s highest-charting album on this side of the Atlantic, eclipsing the No. 6 peak of 7/27 (Syco Music), released in 2016 by her former group, Fifth Harmony.
