Sabrina Carpenter Eyes Another U.K. No. 1, Chappell Roan Aims for Top 10

Sabrina Carpenter is on track to secure another U.K. No. 1 single, while Chappell Roan looks set to break into the national top 10 for the first time.

Carpenter’s “Please Please Please” (via Island) holds top spot on the midweek U.K. chart and is positioned to take top spot for a second week — positioning Carpenter for another significant career milestone.

The track, produced by Jack Antonoff, is the second single from Carpenter’s sixth studio LP, Short ‘n’ Sweet, which was released June 6, following her previous U.K. No. 1 hit with “Espresso.”

Last Friday, June 21, Carpenter achieved a remarkable feat when “Please, Please, Please” dethroned Eminem’s “Houdini” to secure her second U.K. leader in less than two months, while “Espresso” held strong at No. 2.

The achievement set a new Official Chart record, with Carpenter becoming the youngest female solo artist in history to simultaneously hold the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on the Official Singles Chart, at age 25 years, 1 month, and 10 days old, surpassing Ariana Grande’s previous record.

Grande was 25 years, 7 months, and 20 days old when she achieved the same feat in February 2019 with “7 rings” and “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored” respectively leading the chart.

Meanwhile, Chappell Roan is making a strong bid for her first U.K. top 10 entry with her single “Good Luck, Babe” (Island), up 16-9 on the chart blast.

The single recently topped the Official Trending Chart, showcasing its growing popularity in the U.K. “Good Luck”, along with her previous hit “HOT TO GO!” from her 2023 debut album The Rise and Fall of a Midwest Princess, has solidified her status as a rising star in the pop scene. “Good Luck, Babe” has spent six consecutive weeks in the top 40, peaking at No. 18.

Roan’s strong social media presence has played a significant role in the single’s success, with “Good Luck, Babe” gaining substantial traction on TikTok with thousands of users featuring the track in their videos.

The Official U.K. Singles Chart will be revealed late Friday, June 30.
