11/23/20

Michael Ball and Alfie Boe are battling with BTS to claim this week’s U.K. Official Albums #1. Over on singles, the latter could end Ariana Grande’s four-week reign at the top.

Ball and Boe’s Together at Christmas (Decca) is #1 at the halfway point, leading by 7,000 chart sales. At #2, BTS’s BE (Big Hit) is the most downloaded and streamed new release of the week.

Following its arrival on vinyl last week, Taylor Swift’s Folklore (EMI) rebounds to #3 from #36. Iron Maiden live album, Nights Of The Dead—Legacy Of The Beast (Parlophone), rounds out the midweek Top 5 at #5.

Neil Diamond and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Classic Diamonds (UMG) starts at #6, reissued Pink Floyd live album, Delicate Sound of Thunder (Parlophone), enters at #7, and another live album from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Idiot Prayer: Nick Cave Alone (AWAL), is #8.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweek chart, BTS’s “Life Goes On” are just 600 sales Grande’s chart-topper “Positions” (Island). Miley Cyrus is heading for her seventh U.K. Top 10 single with “Prisoner” f/Dua Lipa (RCA) new at #6, while Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber’s collaboration, “Monster” (EMI), starts at #10.
