Nathan Evans’ sea shanty “Wellerman” is sailing towards a third U.K. chart crown.
After the first 48 hours of the chart cycle, “Wellerman” boasts a lead of almost 2,000 chart sales on its nearest rival, Riton x Nightcrawlers’ “Friday” featuring Mufasa and The Hypeman, the OCC reports.
There’s more than enough time for “Friday” to mount a challenge on “Wellerman”.
Following the No. 1 debut of his Evering Road album, British singer Tom Grennan could snag two entries the Top 10. “Little Bit Of Love” lifts 13-7 on the First Look chart, while his collaboration with Ella Henderson, “Let’s Go Home Together,” vaults 19-8 on the sales blast.
The highest new entry on the First Look survey belongs to Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” new at No. 15. The song and its controversial music video is lifted from the U.S. rapper’s forthcoming album of the same name.
Just one place behind is rising British singer Mimi Webb’s “Good Without,” dropping in at No. 16.
The Official U.K. Singles Chart is published late Friday, local time.
