Sam Smith and Kim Petras Set For ‘Unholy’ Debut on U.K. Chart
Bebe Rexha and David Guetta have had a good week, but they aren’t certain to retain the U.K. singles charts crown ..
Guetta’s and Rexha’s hit, “I’m Good(Blue)” (via Parlophone), faces stiff competition from Sam Smith’s “Unholy (EMI),” which powers to No. 2 on the midweek charts.
Following the first 48 hours in the chart week, just a “handful of units” separated the two singles, the OCC reports, with “I’m Good (Blue)” still at the top of the leaderboard.
Also noteworthy on the Official Chart Update is Luude and Mattafix’s “Big City Life” (Warner Records), which is on track for a 10-7 lift, for what would be a new peak, while homegrown grime star Stormzy should grab his 25th top 40 appearance with “Mel Made Me Do It” (0207/Merky). The seven-minute track is climbing to No. 13 debut.
