Sam Smith's 'The Thrill of It All' Leads U.K.'s Midweek Chart
publish date: 2017-11-07
Smith will be hopeful of going two-from-two. His debut album, In The Lonely Hour, went straight to the top in June 2014 with 102,000 units shifted in week one. The album spent eight non-consecutive weeks at the summit and is poised for a top 20 re-entry; it’s at No. 19 on the Official Chart Update. Early forecasts suggest Smith should also lock up No. 1 on the 200.
Meanwhile, last week's No. 1 U.K. album, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe's Together Again (Decca) dips to No. 3 on the midweek tally while George Michael's Listen Without Prejudice (Sony Music CG) holds at No. 4, and Pink's Beautiful Trauma (RCA) comes in at No. 5.
Canadian rock veteran Bryan Adams could earn a tenth top 10 album with his new hits set, Ultimate (Polydor), which starts at No. 6 while Maroon 5's sixth studio effort Red Pill Blues (Interscope) sits just outside the top tier at No. 11.
