Drake sets up camp in the charts with Scorpion

Drake sets up camp in the charts with Scorpion

The Official Charts Company Midweek Sales Flash is in, and Drake is setting up camp in the charts, with new album Scorpion making a big first impression.

George Ezra’s Shotgun is still No.1 with 26,371 sales, but Drake’s Nonstop surges to No.2 with 21,186 sales. The Toronto rapper has two more tracks in the Top 5 – Don’t Matter To Me (No.3, 20,428 sales) and Emotionless (No.5, 18,401 sales). Clean Bandit and Demi Lovato nestle at No.4 with Solo (19,906 sales).

New chart rules mean they won’t be visible in the final chart, but the 20 other tracks from the 25-song Scorpion can be found in what would have been the Top 25.

Unsurprisingly, Scorpion currently sits at No.1 in the albums chart, but its 30,545 sales are only marginally more than Florence + The Machine’s 29,572 for High As Hope. The Greatest Showman sits in third spot with 11,599 sales, while Gorillaz’s The Now Now (11,445 sales) and George Ezra’s Staying At Tamara’s (9,345 sales) complete the Top 5.
