Jack Harlow Eyes Third Week at No. 1 In U.K. With ‘Lovin On Me’

, , Comments Off on Jack Harlow Eyes Third Week at No. 1 In U.K. With ‘Lovin On Me’

Christmas songs are coming, fast, but for now Jack Harlow has the hottest single in the U.K.

The Louisville singer and songwriter leads the U.K. chart blast with “Lovin On Me,” which has already clocked up two weeks at No. 1.

Based on sales and streaming data captured by the Official Charts Company, “Lovin On Me” has the advantage after the first weekend of the chart cycle.

Meanwhile, bouncing EDM track “Prada” (Ministry of Sound) by cassöRAYE & D-Block Europe is forecast to hold at No. 2, while singer and songwriter Noah Kahan continues to climb with “Stick Season” (Republic Records), his breakout song. It’s up 4-3 on the First Look chart, and, if it holds its position, would mark a new career high for the U.S. artist.

Brits love a Christmas song, and this year is proving no different. Less than a month before Santa hands out the presents, three holiday themed numbers should get the gift of a top 10 appearance when the Official U.K. Singles Chart is published late Friday, Dec. 1.

Leading the way is Wham’s “Last Christmas” (Epic) at No. 6 on the chart blast, ahead of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (Columbia), while Sam Ryder is on the brink of his second top 10 appearance with his Amazon Music Original “You’re Christmas To Me” (East West/Rhino), flying 50-10 on the chart blast. Ryder is something of a national hero after he represented the U.K. in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with “Space Man,” which finished first in the jury vote and second overall, behind the Ukraine’s entry, Kalush Orchestra’s “Stefania”. “Space Man” is Ryder’s only U.K. top 10 appearance to date, peaking at No. 2.

Further down the chart blast, Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” (MCA) is set to climb 31-17 and Jorja Smith’s cover of East-17’s “Stay Another Day” (FAMM), also an Amazon Music Original, could fly 75-18, a new peak. “Stay Another Day” should give Smith a sixth U.K. top 40 hit.

As previously reported, Christmas came early to the U.K. singles chart earlier this month as those evergreen records by Wham! and Carey made their earliest annual appearance on the chart.

The chart race for the coveted Christmas No. 1 starts Dec. 15.
