BTS storm clear in albums chart race

BTS storm clear in albums chart race

K-pop kings BTS are in pole position to claim their first UK No.1 album with Map Of The Soul: Persona. 

The LP has sold 17,104 copies to date, according to the Official Charts Company midweeks, putting it well clear of another new entry, No Geography (6,864 sales) by The Chemical Brothers, which is at No.2, and last week's chart-topper When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (No.3, 6,248 sales) by Billie Eilish. 

The Top 10 also features new entries by Dogrel (No.4, 5,214 sales) by Fontaines DC, My Happy Place (No.5, 4,227 sales) by Emma Bunton and Dreamboats And Petticoats Presents: The Very Best Of Marty Wilde (No.7, 4,043 sales). 

Elsewhere, Lewis Capaldi's seven-week reign at the top of the singles chart could be coming to an end as Lil Nas X's Old Town Road (24,678 sales) holds a narrow lead over Someone You Loved (23,023 sales). 

Keisha & Becky by Russ & Tion Wayne surges 30-7 with sales of 12,567, while BTS & Halsey's Boy With Luv (11,729 sales) and SOS (9,648 sales) by the late Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc are new entries at No.8 and No.10 respectively.
