DJ Khaled Set for Top Debuts on U.K. Singles Chart

Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo are on track for a fourth successive U.K. chart crown with “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)”. But they’ve got a battle on their hands.

The Kiwi producer and U.S. R&B artist lead the U.K. sales blast with their viral hit, which races to an early lead of 1,500 combined sales lead over Joel Corry & MNEK’s dance track “Head and Heart.”

After 48 hours of the new chart week, “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” takes top spot on the Official Chart: First Look Top 20. “Head and Heart” is “catching up,” the Official Charts Company reports. If the pair can outpace the incumbent, it’ll be both artists’ first No. 1.

Elsewhere, DJ Khaled is set to score the two highest new entries this week as his Drake-assisted tracks “Popstar” and “Greece” start at No. 8 and 11, respectively.

Legendary post-punk band Joy Division could see three singles reenter the top 40, following a vinyl reissue campaign celebrating the 40th anniversary of their classic album Closer.

On the sales blast, “Love Will Tear Us Apart” starts at No. 12, “Atmosphere” is at No. 21 and “Transmission” begins at No. 23.

The Official U.K. Singles Chart is published late Friday.
