Ne-Yo has extended his lead in the race to top the UK singles chart this Sunday, but The Script with will.i.am are still close enough to catch him.
Having been placed in third spot behind Pink and The Script on the first Sales Flashes announced on Tuesday, Ne-Yo's Def Jam/Mercury single Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love) now has an 11.3% sales lead over the rest of the market, according to the Official Charts Company. This compares to a lead of 4.9% two days ago.
The Script featuring will.i.am's newly-issued Epic/Phonogenic single Hall Of Fame is placed second, while Pink's brand new RCA track Blow Me (One Last Kiss) is third having been leading the market at the beginning of the week.
Little Mix's Syco single Wings, which debuted at No 1 last Sunday, is down to fourth place and One More Tunes/Stiff's Boom Bom by Sam and the Womp drops 2-5.
On artist albums The Vaccines appear on course to debut at No 1 with their second Columbia set Come Of Age with Two Door Cinema Club's sophomore Kitsune release Beacon set to arrive in second place. Rita Ora's Columbia/Roc Nation album Ora is third having entered at No 1 last Sunday, while Emeli Sande's Virgin-issued Our Version Of Events has dropped 2-4 at this stage of the week.
The Vaccines and Two Door Cinema Club are joined by three other brand new albums among the Top 10 sellers in the week so far with Polydor act Ronan Keating's Fires fifth, Mark Knopfler's Mercury album Privateering seventh and Scouting For Girls' third Epic album The Light Between Us ninth. North, Atlantic-signed Matchbox Twenty's first album in nearly a decade, is showing up as a new entry at 11.
