Olivia Rodrigo should extend her stay atop the Official U.K. Singles Chart for at least another week with “Good 4 U” (Geffen).
The teenage U.S. artist and actor last Friday (May 28) set a handful of new records as her debut album Sour opened at No. 1 and “Good 4 U” climbed to the top of the national singles survey, for her second leader.
Rodrigo’s latest hit single rules the First Look chart, which ranks tracks based on the first 48 hours of sales and streaming activity, while her second single “Déjà Vu” (No. 5) and her debut “Drivers License” (No. 6) are impacting the Top 10.
At this early stage, Stay Flee Get Lizzy’s “Meant To Be” (Ye) featuring Fredo and Central Cee is on course to be the highest new entry. It’s at No. 16 on the chart blast.
Stay Flee Get Lizzy is the artist project of Dion “Sincere” Lizzy, the rapper and industry figure who landed a Top 40 hit with 2018’s “Ay Caramba” featuring Nottingham Fredo and hip-hop duo Young T & Bugsey.
Meanwhile, The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” (Republic Records/XO) lifts 8-3 following his performance with Ariana Grande at the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards while Rag’n’Bone Man & P!nk’s “Anywhere Away From Here” (Best Laid Plans/Columbia) is chasing a new peak, rising 11- 8.
