Beyoncé En Route For Third Week Atop U.K. Chart

By Michael Mar 5, 2024

Beyoncé should hold onto her U.K. chart crown for a third week, at least.

Based on midweek sales and streaming data tabled by the Official Charts Company, Bey’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” (via Columbia/Parkwood Ent) has the advantage.

Beyoncé’s country-tinged hit is her sixth solo U.K. leader, and her first in 14 years. She has an additional two U.K. No. 1s as a member of Destiny’s Child.

Meanwhile, Teddy Swims’ “Lose Control” (Atlantic) currently sits behind “Texas Hold ‘Em” at No. 2, with Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” (Warner Records) closing out the podium at No. 3.

After cracking the top 10 for the first time last Friday, Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign‘s “Carnival” (YZY) continues to move north. “Carnival” is set to climb 9-6 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, for a new peak position. The track appears on the Vultures 1 collection, which recently peaked at No. 2 in the U.K.

The top debut on the singles tally should belong to Olly Alexander with “Dizzy” (Polydor), the U.K. entry for the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest. Produced by Danny L Harle, “Dizzy” is new at No. 15 on the chart blast. As frontman with Years & Years, the pop singer scored 10 top 40 singles, including five top 10s and No. 1 in 2015 with “King”.

Close behind is Charli XCX‘s “Von Dutch” (Atlantic), new at No. 16 on the chart update, for what should become the British singer and songwriter’s 15th top 40 hit.

Meanwhile, Twenty One Pilots‘ is expected to land a third top 40 with “Overcompensate” (Atlantic). It’s new at No. 26 on the chart blast.

Finally, Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus could bag another top 40 with “Doctor (Work It Out)” (via Columbia), new at No. 32 on midweek tally. The collab has reportedly been in the works for over a decade, and was intended to appear on but apparently scrapped from Cyrus’ 2013 album Bangerz.

Miley already has 24 U.K. top 40 hits, with three No. 1s, including “Flowers” which led the national chart for 10 weeks in 2023. Pharrell has 19 U.K. top 40s, including four leaders.

All will be revealed when the Official U.K. Singles Chart is published Friday, March 8.
