DaBaby’s ‘Rockstar’ Blasts to Early Lead In U.K. Chart Race

DaBaby’s “Rockstar” featuring Roddy Ricch is on track for a sixth week atop the U.K. singles chart, while Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo’s “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” (RCA) could be the week’s big chart surprise.

Based on weekend sales and streams activity, “Rockstar” (Interscope) has a lead of 1,000 chart sales as it rules the Official Chart: First Look, ahead of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s “Rain on Me” (Interscope) and Topic’s “Breaking Me” featuring A7S, respectively.

Teenage Polynesian artist Jawsh 685 (real name Joshua Nanai) is converting TikTok buzz into a chart burst as “Savage Love” flies 22-4.

The fastest debut on the sales blast belongs to M Huncho and Dutchavelli, whose “Burning” opens at No. 15. If the track holds its position when the Official U.K. Singles Chart is published this Friday, it’ll mark Huncho’s first top 20 single, and Dutchavelli’s second, following “I Dunno” (Atlantic) with Tion Wayne and Stormzy, which hit No. 7 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart earlier this month and is currently at No. 9.

Pop singer Ava Max could bag a third top 20 song with “Kings & Queens” (Atlantic), lifting 26-20. The U.S. artist snagged a No. 1 with 2018’s “Sweet By Psycho” and its followup “So Am I” peaked at No. 13.
