Coldplay and Adele Battle it Out For U.K. Chart Crown


Who is Britain’s favorite act, Adele or Coldplay? A heavyweight tussle for the crown will be decided when the Official U.K. Albums Chart is published this Friday.

As it stands at the midweek point of the chart cycle, Coldplay’s new album A Head Full of Dreams (Parlophone) is leading Adele’s record-breaking 25 (XL) by a margin of just 2,000 copies, according to the Official Charts Company.

Coldplay’s seventh – and apparently final – album has registered sales so far of just under 160,000 (gold certification in the U.K. is 100,000 units, platinum is 300,000) and is No. 1 on the Top 100 Official Albums Chart Update.
