The Barbadian singer is flying with “Elevate Me Up,” which can seem within the upcoming Marvel movie, Black Panther: Wakanda Endlessly.

Based mostly on gross sales and streaming information from the primary 48 hours within the chart cycle, “Life Me Up” is the No. 2-ranked music. The chief within the early levels is Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero,” which bowed at No. 1 final Friday (Oct. 28) for TayTay’s second U.Ok. chart chief.

Based on the Official Charts Firm, the race to No. 1 is “extremely shut,” with former chief “Unholy,” by Sam Smith and Kim Petras, at No. 3 on the First Look survey.

Heading into the second half of the week, lower than 300 chart gross sales separate the highest three.

If “Elevate Me Up” does certainly raise to the highest it might be Rihanna’s 10th U.Ok. No. 1, and first since 2017’s “Wild Ideas,” with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller. It can, virtually actually, give RiRi her thirty first U.Ok. high 10 look.

Elsewhere on the chart blast, a number of tracks eye new peaks contained in the U.Ok. high 10 — Oliver Tree and Robin Schulz’s “Miss You,” and Stormzy’s “Cover & Search” (No. 6), whereas Venbee & Goddard are chasing a primary look within the high flight with “Messy In Heaven” (No. 10).

SZA’s personal comeback monitor, “Shirt,” might put on a high 20 debut. It’s heading in the right direction for a No. 15 begin.

Lastly, Meghan Trainor “Made You Look” is the largest gainer on the chart blast, the OCC studies, up 28-18.

All will probably be revealed when the Official U.Ok. Singles Chart is printed this Friday.
