HITS Daily Double


ZAYN’s RCA debut Mind Of Mine is poised to open at #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart. At midweek, the album is more than 5,000 combined sales ahead of Adele's 25 (XL).

Beyond the former One Direction member’s solo debut, the top 10 is looking at three new entries. Blues guitarist and singer Joe Bonamassa is headed for #3 with his Blues Of Desperation (J&R Adventures), Birdy's third album Beautiful Lies (Atlantic UK) is flying to #4 and Sumerian’s British metalcore act Asking Alexandria is pegged for #10 with The Black.

On the Official Singles Chart, Mike Posner is floating toward a third week at #1 with “I Took A Pill In Ibiza (Seeb Remix).” Lukas Graham's “7 Years” will hold on #2 while Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home” and Sia's “Cheap Thrills” are seeing improved sales from the week previous.

In other U.K. news, everybody over there is watching the election news, and they're worried about you, mate.
