As Barbiemania spreads across the nation, we dive into the tracks that are climbing the chart ladder, unveiling a mix of nostalgic classics and new hits that will surely set the dance floors on fire.

The Rise of Barbie on the U.K. Chart

As the U.K. singles chart witnesses a wave of Barbiemania, we see the first single from Barbie: The Album, “Dance The Night” by the talented Dua Lipa (via Warner Records), making a formidable climb from 12 to 3 on the Official Chart Update. With this surge, “Dance The Night” is poised to reach a new peak if it maintains its position. The track radiates the energy and charisma of Barbie, capturing hearts and setting the tone for the rest of the soundtrack.

A Nostalgic Resurgence

Barbiemania is not just about the latest hits; it’s a journey down memory lane with Aqua’s kitsch 1997 classic “Barbie Girl” (Universal) making an impressive comeback. The infectious tune is set to reenter the U.K. top 40 after more than 25 years, positioning itself at No. 34 on the chart blast. As fans embrace the timeless charm of “Barbie Girl,” it joins the esteemed ranks of the U.K.’s million-seller club, securing a spot at No. 16 on the all-time list.

Star-Studded Lineup: The Barbiemania Soundtrack

The success of Barbiemania owes much to the star-studded lineup behind the Barbie soundtrack. Executive produced by the acclaimed Mark Ronson, the album features an ensemble of pop’s biggest hitmakers, including Lizzo, Fifty Fifty, Kali, Gayle, Khalid, Haim, and Ava Max. Each track brings its unique flavor to the mix, creating an eclectic and vibrant collection that celebrates the spirit of Barbie in all its glory.

New Players on the Chart

While Barbiemania reigns supreme, the U.K. singles chart welcomes some exciting new entries. Travis Scott, Bad Bunny, and the Weeknd’s collaborative single, “K-pop” (RCA), storms into the chart at No. 21, making a powerful statement with its electrifying energy.

Not to be outdone, Stormzy and Raye’s team-up in “The Weekend” (0207/Merky) confidently enters the chart at No. 24, showcasing the creative prowess of British talents.

And let’s not forget Zayn, who is set to mark his eighth solo top 40 appearance with “Love Like This” (Universal Music Recordings) arriving at No. 31 on the chart blast. Zayn’s magnetic vocals promise yet another chart-topping sensation.
