Kasabian seek to challenge Ed Sheeran at the top of the albums chart

The Official Charts Midweek Sales Flash is in, and change could be on the cards at the top of both charts.

Lucas Fonsi & Daddy climb 4-1 with Despacito (22,524 sales), which means DJ Khaled’s I’m The One (21,269 sales) slips to No.2. Symphony, by Clean Bandit (feat. Zara Larsson) is at No.3 on 15,891 sales, with Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You at No.4 on 14,486 sales. Shawn Mendes’ There’s No Holdin’ Me Back (13,090 sales) climbs two places to complete the Top 5. 

In the albums chart Kasabian’s For Crying Out Loud has opened up a healthy lead ahead of Ed Sheeran’s ÷. The Leicester band have shifted 39,836 copies so far, while Sheeran posts a figure of 19,396. Rag’N’Bone Man’s Human holds firm at No.3 on 11,301 sales, ahead of Blondie’s Pollinator, which enters at No.4 on 7,563 sales. Behind them all, Gorillaz’s Humanz slides 2-5.
