Over on the Official Singles midweeks, Harris and Lipa's “One Kiss” (Columbia/Warner Bros.) has risen two places and is challenging Drake for the #1 spot. It’s currently 3.3k combined sales ahead of “Nice for What” (Island). 

Climbers include “Lullaby” (Ministry of Sound) by Sigala & Paloma Faith rising three spots to #6 while Bebe Rexha is on the cusp of her first Top 10 as a lead artist with “Meant to Be” (Parlophone) f/Florida Georgia Line at #10.

Zayn looks set to claim this week’s highest new entry with “Let Me” (RCA) at #17, followed by Nicki Minaj with “Chun-Li” (Island) and “Barbie Tingz” at #21 and #22 respectively.
