Dua Lipa Dominates Charts with Barbie-Inspired Anthem!

For the first instance in a span of two and a half months, there is anticipation for a fresh leader on the U.K. singles chart, signifying an exciting transition. Currently, Dua Lipa seems to be the prime candidate for this coveted position.

The eminent pop icon is commanding the midweek chart with her track titled “Dance The Night,” released through Warner Records, which is among the array of hits emerging from the Barbie franchise.

Should it succeed in ascending to the top spot, making a leap from 3rd to 1st place, “Dance The Night” would solidify Dua Lipa’s achievement of securing her fourth U.K. chart-topper. Her previous accomplishments include chart-toppers like “New Rules,” “One Kiss,” a collaboration with Calvin Harris, and “Cold Heart,” a collaborative effort with Elton John, remixed by PNAU.

The pervasive influence of the Barbie phenomenon continues to cast ripples on the U.K. singles chart, mirroring its remarkable accomplishment of surpassing the $1 billion threshold in global box office revenue. This influence is discernible across the chart landscape. Impressively, the top two positions are currently occupied by tracks tied to Barbie. Billie Eilish’s poignant ballad “What Was I Made For?” clinches second place, trailing “Dance The Night” by a slight margin in terms of chart performance, as meticulously reported by the Official Charts Company.

Among the noteworthy contenders from Barbie: The Album making their mark midweek are “Barbie World” by the artists Nicki Minaj, Ice Spice, and Aqua, claiming the 7th spot; Charli XCX’s “Speed Drive” securing the 14th position; Ryan Gosling’s “I’m Just Ken” at No. 16; and Lizzo’s “Pink” at No. 34.

Meanwhile, Olivia Rodrigo’s soulful track “Vampire” (Geffen) takes its place in the third spot in the midweek standings. The Grammy-winning pop luminary is on the cusp of seizing the highest new entry on the national survey with “Bad Idea Right,” the latest release extracted from her highly anticipated sophomore album, GUTS. This new track gracefully enters at No. 5 on the Official Chart Update.

Fred Again’s “I Adore U” (Atlantic) is poised to leave an indelible mark on the chart, with a promising debut anticipated at No. 11. Such an accomplishment would mark a pinnacle in the career of this accomplished DJ and producer, who has garnered well-deserved recognition with a nomination for the prestigious Mercury Prize.

On a different note, it appears that the journey of Dave and Central Cee’s “Sprinter” (Live Yours/Neighbourhood) has reached its culmination. The standout hit enjoyed a notable ten-week reign atop the national chart, but is now poised to gracefully descend from the summit, even slipping out of the top 10. Based on comprehensive data encompassing sales and streaming metrics, “Sprinter” is expected to settle at No. 12.

The unfolding of all these developments is eagerly awaited as the Official U.K. Singles Chart is set to be unveiled on Friday, August 18th.
