Ed Sheeran’s “Shivers” looks set to continue its U.K. chart supremacy, though the Rocket Man could still catch it.
“Shivers” leads the First Look chart, which ranks singles based on the sales and streaming activity from the first 48 hours, and is on target for a fourth straight week at No. 1.
“Cold Heart” is remixed by the Sydney electronic act Pnau, who teamed up with Elton on the U.K. chart topping album from 2012, Good Morning to the Night.
According to the OCC, “Cold Heart” is Elton’s highest-charting single as a lead artist since his re-release of “Are You Ready For Love” hit No. 1 in 2003, following its appearance in a Sky Sports football campaign.
“Cold Heart” is lifted from Elton’s forthcoming album The Lockdown Sessions, which includes collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Lil Nas X, Miley Cyrus, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Nicks.
Further down the list, Oxford band Glass Animals could see a new peak with “Heat Waves,” which lifts to No. 5 on the chart blast.
“Heat Waves” was deemed the most popular song in 2020 by listeners of Australia’s triple j, who voted the song to No. 1 in the Hottest 100 countdown in January of this year.
The Official U.K. Singles Chart is published late Friday, local time.
