Captain Tom Moore’s battle for Number 1 heats up as The Weeknd closes gap

Captain Tom Moore’s battle for today’s Official Number 1 single in the UK is heating up, with the gap in between the Leading 2 narrowing today (April 22).

According to the most recent sales and streaming information put together by the Official Charts Business, The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights is capturing up to Captain Tom Moore and Michael Ball’s You’ll Never ever Stroll Alone, who still hold the lead with 60,000 chart sales accumulated up until now today.

Nevertheless, simply over 18,000 chart sales now separate the 2, compared to a gap of 27,000 the other day (April 21). Captain Tom Moore blazes a trail on downloads, while The Weeknd shows himself a powerhouse on streaming. Can the 99 year-old war veteran and one-man fundraising machine combat The Weeknd to declare success on this Friday’s Official Songs Chart?

Having actually currently raised over ₤28 million for the NHS, Captain Tom Moore has actually signed up with forces with Michael Ball and the NHS Voices Of Care Choir on a cover of the Rodgers & & Hammerstein/ Gerry & & The Pacemakers’ classic.

If Captain Tom does preserve his lead through to Friday’s final whistle, he might be bringing home a debut Official UK Number 1 single in the nick of time for his 100 th birthday on April 30.

The cut-off for streams and sales to count towards today’s chart is midnight Thursday. The final Official Chart Top 40 will be revealed on BBC Radio 1’s The Official Chart with Scott Mills this Friday from 4pm, with the full Official Songs Chart Top 100 released on OfficialCharts.com from 5.45 pm.
