Mogwai, Olivia Rodrigo Lead U.K.’s Midweek Charts

Mogwai are leading a tight race for the U.K. chart crown.

At the halfway stage in the chart week, the Scottish instrumental rock veterans hold the edge with As The Love Continues (Rock Action), their tenth studio album.

As The Love Continues rules the Official Chart Update, though just 1,800 chart sales currently separate a Top 3 that also features Foo FightersMedicine At Midnight (up 3-2 via Columbia) and British grime MC Ghetts’ Conflict of Interest (new at No. 3 via Warner Records).

Should Mogwai stay on top when the weekly chart is published Friday, it would be their first No. 1 and third consecutive Top 10 studio effort.

Meanwhile, Ariana Grande’s former leader Positions (Republic Records) is on track to revisit the Top 5 for the first time since November 2020. Following the release of a deluxe edition, Positions is at No. 5 on the chart blast and is the most-streamed record of the week so far, the OCC reports.

Also aiming for Top 10 berths are the Whitesnake compilation The Blues Album (new at No. 9 via Rhino), and Yorkshire indie outfit The Reytons’ fourth EP May Seriously Harm You and Others Around You (at No. 10 via Scruff of the Neck).

Over in the U.K. Singles Chart race, Olivia Rodrigo holds her position out front with “Drivers License” (Interscope), ahead of Nathan Evans’ “Wellerman” (Polydor) and “Calling My Phone” (Columbia) by Lil Tjay and 6lack.

Rodrigo is chasing a seventh successive week at No. 1 in the U.K.
