Beyoncé’s ‘Cowboy Carter’ Is Galloping to U.K. No. 1

Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter won’t be caught in the U.K. chart race.

Based on midweek sales and streaming data published by the Official Charts Company, Cowboy Carter (via Columbia/Parkwood Entertainment) is outselling rest of top 5 combined.

The U.S. superstar’s eighth studio LP, Cowboy Carter is all set to become Bey’s fifth solo leader in the U.K., following Dangerously In Love (from 2003), 4 (2011), Lemonade (2016) and Renaissance (2022). As a member of Destiny’s Child, alongside Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, Beyoncé owns another No. 1 with 2001’s Survivor.

Queen Bey could lasso a chart double, as Cowboy Carter cut “Texas Hold ‘Em” eyes a return to No. 1 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, for what would be a fifth non-consecutive week at the top.

British shoegaze champions Ride could nab a career-best chart position with Interplay (Wichita Recordings), their seventh studio set. Interplay bows at No. 2 on the Official Chart Update, and should become the band’s fourth top 10 entry, alongside 1992’s Going Blank Again and 1994’s Carnival Of Light, both of which peaked at No. 5; and 2019’s This Is Not A Safe Place (No. 7).

Olivia Rodrigo’s Guts (Geffen) should grab the glory with a top three finish, thanks to the release of the deluxe “Spilled” edition. The one-time U.K. chart champion, Guts lifts 4-3 on the chart blast.

Canadian punk-rock outfit Sum 41 is eyeing a top 10 debut with Heaven :x: Hell (Rise Records), their eighth and final studio album. It’s predicted to start at No. 10, for Sum 41’s second top tier effort and highest charting record since their 2001 debut All Killer, No Filler hit No. 7.

Finally, new releases from While She Sleeps (Self Help at No. 18 via Spinefarm), BTS’s J-Hope (Hope On The Street Vol.1 at No. 20 via BigHit Entertainment) and Sheryl Crow (Evolution at No. 30 via Big Machine) are heading for top 40 berths.

All will be revealed when the Official U.K. Albums Chart is published this Friday, April 5.
