Billie Eilish On Track For U.K. Top 5 Debut With ‘My Future’

Billie Eilish’s future is bright. And her latest single “My Future” is heading for a lofty debut in the U.K.

The new track opens at No. 3 on the First Look chart, based on downloads and streams across Friday and Saturday.

It’s on track for what should be Eilish’s fifth U.K. Top 10 single, though its some way from emulating her chart-topping success with the James Bond track “No Time To Die,” which is recognized as the biggest No. 1 of 2020 so far.

Joel Corry & MNEK’s “Head & Heart” leads the preliminary tally and is the most downloaded and streamed song in the early stage of the week. It’s charging towards a third week at No. 1, with a lead of 4,500 chart sales over the No. 2 placed “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” by New Zealand producer Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo.

Gareth Malone’s Great British Home Chorus bows at No. 5 on the chart blast with “You Are My Sunshine,” following its release on CD. Malone, a two-time chart-topping conductor, recorded the “choir” virtually with 11,000 participants, with all proceeds going to NHS Charities Together.

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