Beyoncé’s ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ Locks-Down Midweek Chart Lead In U.K.

Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” is proving tough to shift in the U.K.

Based on sales and streaming data published by the Official Charts Company, Bey’s country-influenced hit is on track for a fourth-successive week at the top.

If it holds on, as expected, “Texas Hold ‘Em” (Columbia/Parkwood Ent) will be the Houston superstar singer’s longest-reigning single in the U.K., passing the three-week run at No. 1 for 2003’s “Crazy In Love.”

Ariana Grande appears set for a fifth U.K. No. 1 album with Eternal Sunshine (vis Republic Records), which leads the Official Albums Chart Update. Three tracks from the new LP are set to crack the U.K. top 20, led by “yes, and?” at No. 4; “we can’t be friends (wait for your love),” new at No. 6 on the chart blast; and “bye,” new at No. 13.

Those new entries should lift Grande’s career U.K. top 40 tally to 34.

Grande’s seventh studio album, Eternal Sunshine enjoys a bump from her performance on Saturday Night Live and the release of a “Slightly Deluxe” version featuring four additional tracks, including her previously heard duet with idol Mariah Carey on “yes, and?”

Grande was also on hand at the Academy Awards on Sunday, March 10 to present Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell with the best original song Oscar for “What Was I Made For?” (Intercope) from the Barbie soundtrack. “What Was I Made For,” which the siblings performed at the Oscars, is set to a U.K. top 40 return. The melancholy single flies 98-26 on the Official Chart Update, as U.K. fans snap up copies of a limited 7” single.

Finally, Drake‘s rework of 4batz‘s breakout hit “​act ii: date @ 8 (remix)” (4batz OVO sound) should make a top 40 splash. “Act ii” starts at No. 20 on the midweek chart, and could add to Drake’s ridiculous tally of U.K. top 40 appearances, which currently stands at 91.

All will be revealed when the Official U.K. Singles Chart is published Friday, March 15.
