Ariana Grande’s ‘Positions’ Chasing Sixth Week at No. 1 In U.K.

News

Ariana Grande is on track for a sixth week at No. 1 in the U.K. with “Positions,” while Liam Gallagher is dreaming of his own career high.

Gallagher’s new charity single “All You’re Dreaming Of” is the most downloaded track in the early part of the week, and is heading for the week’s highest debut.

The former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman starts at No. 12 on the Official Chart: First Look, which tallies sales and streaming data from the weekend.

The Manchester singer’s personal best as a solo artist is 2017’s “Wall Of Glass” which peaked at No. 21, though he hit the singles chart summit eight times with Oasis.

Gallagher premiered the new song Saturday night on ITV’s The Jonathan Ross Show.

There’s a festive theme across the chart blast as Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” rockets to No. 4, and is one of four yuletide tunes aiming for the Top 10.

Among them is Wham’s “Last Christmas,” up 20-7; Justin Bieber’s cover of Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” roars 48-8; and The Pogues featuring Kirsty Maccoll’s classic “Fairytale Of New York lifts 26-10.

Further down the list, look for holiday tunes from Shakin’ Stevens, Jess Glynne, Band Aid, Elton John and Wizzard to jostle for Top 20 positions.

The Official U.K. Singles Chart is published late Friday, local time.
