Taylor Swift is gearing up for a major impact on the U.K. singles chart. With the release of her latest album, “Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition),” on May 26, three tracks from the album are already making a strong bid for the top 10 spots.
Early sales and streaming data suggest that “Karma” has the potential to jump from 67th position to an impressive 2nd place on the chart. This surge in popularity is attributed to a new version of the song featuring Ice Spice. Another fan favorite, “Hits Different,” is expected to make its debut at No. 8, while “Snow On The Beach,” featuring Lana Del Rey, may enter the top 10 due to a re-recording with additional vocals from Lana Del Rey. “Snow” starts its ascent on the chart at No. 10.
Rapper J Hus is also poised to make a significant impact on the Official U.K. Chart with his track “It’s Crazy.” The song enters the chart blast at No. 6, and if it maintains its position, it would mark J Hus’ fourth appearance in the top 10.
Dua Lipa’s soundtrack for the upcoming Barbie film, “Dance The Night,” is generating considerable buzz. The song enters the chart blast at No. 16 and is expected to become Dua Lipa’s 23rd top 40 hit in the U.K. The film, directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Margot Robbie as Barbie, features a soundtrack titled “Barbie the Album,” produced by Mark Ronson. The album includes tracks from renowned artists such as Lizzo, Nicki Minaj, Karol G, Khalid, Ice Spice, Charli XCX, HAIM, The Kid Laroi, Ava Max, and more.
Meanwhile, Kylie Minogue’s latest song, “Padam Padam,” is gaining momentum across the country. The catchy electro-pop track is climbing the charts and has the potential to break into the top 20 for the first time. Currently, it sits at No. 18 on the chart blast, after debuting at No. 26 on the previous chart. This achievement marks Kylie Minogue’s highest position on the survey since her 2014 hit, “In The Blue,” which peaked at No. 12.
At the pinnacle of the chart blast is Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding’s throwback rave anthem, “Miracle.” The song is on its way to securing its eighth non-consecutive week at the top, equaling Calvin Harris’ longest reign for a single.
Music fans eagerly await the publication of the Official U.K. Singles Chart on Friday (June 2) to see how these songs perform. Taylor Swift’s dominance, J Hus’ potential breakthrough, Dua Lipa’s soundtrack, Kylie Minogue’s rise, and the continued success of “Miracle” will all be unveiled in the official chart rankings.
