Over in the singles chart, Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa are on course for another week at the top with One Kiss (19,433 sales). Ariana Grande's No Tears Left To Cry (No.2, 14,062 sales) and Drake's Nice For What (No.3, 13,596 sales) swap places, and Jess Glynne's I'll Be There (9,304 sales) surges 13-7.
