HITS Daily Double


Justin Bieber is this week’s highest new entry on the U.K’s Official Singles chart at #2 with BloodPop collaboration “Friends” (Def Jam/Polydor/Republic), thanks in part to high streaming stats.

Dua Lipa is #1 for a second consecutive week with “New Rules” (Warner Bros.). The track is a high performer on iTunes and Spotify, sitting at #1 on the latter’s U.K. Top 50 today and #3 on the iTunes chart.

Little Mix ended the week at #5 with their reworking of CNCO's Latin hit “Reggaeton Lento” (Syco).

Elsewhere in the Top 5, Calvin Harris is at #3 with “Feels” (Columbia), followed by P!nk and “What About Us” (RCA) at #4.

Over on the Official Albums Chart, prog rocker Steven Wilson is indeed this week’s highest new entry with fifth studio album, To The Bone (Caroline International), ending the week at #3. Ed Sheeran has reclaimed the top spot—÷ (Atlantic) has racked up 2m sales since its release in March—followed by Elvis Presley’s 50 Greatest Hits (Sony Music CG) at #2.
