Olivia Rodrigo turned 18 on the weekend, but her birthday celebrations could extend for another week at least.

Based on early sales and streaming data, the U.S. pop singer’s global hit “Drivers License” is on track for a seventh week at No. 1 in the U.K.

“Drivers License” leads the Official U.K. Chart Company’s First Look survey, which measures the hottest songs from the first 48 hours of the chart week.

The song that pushed “Drivers License” last week, “Calling My Phone” by Lil Tjay and 6Lack, dips 2-3. After leading at the midweek stage, “Calling My Phone” missed out on top spot by just 1,700 combined sales.

The fastest-starting debut belongs to Ella Henderson and Tom Grennan, whose collaboration “Let’s Go Home Together” is new at No. 17 on the chart blast.

It’s the U.K.’s most downloaded song so far this week and enjoys a boost following the pair’s performance of the track on BBC One’s The Graham Norton Show.

If it holds its momentum, “Let’s Go Home Together” would give Henderson her first Top 40 single as a lead artist in over six years, since “Yours” cracked the Top 20 in December 2014. Grennan has yet to impact the U.K. Top 40. He could double up when the Official U.K. Singles Chart is published this Friday, as “Little Bit Of Love” lifts to No. 36, the OCC reports.

Meanwhile, a trio of dance tracks are beating a path up the chart. Tiesto’s “The Business” lifts 6-4, Riton x Nightcrawlers’ “Friday” featuring Musafa and Hypeman vaults 10-5, and ATB’s “Your Love” (9pm) featuring Topic and A7S is up 21-14.
