Although Automaton is riding high on charts all around the world, if you look at the official UK 'midweek' charts it seems that Jamiroquai won't be able to make it to the top spot when the final charts are announced on Friday. An article at the Official Charts website says the following:
"Jamiroquai are on track to be this week’s highest new entry and score a ninth Top 10 with their first album in over six years. The band, led by Jay Kay, are at 2 on today's update, with Automaton."
Oh, and the album that looks like it will be number 1 (for a fifth week).... Divide - by Ed Sheeran. Here are the total sales for Friday-Sunday for the top 5 albums in the UK:
- Ed Sheeran - ÷ (50,931)
- Jamiroquai - Automaton (16,054)
- Rag'n'Bone Man - Human (13,114)
- Take That - Wonderland (10,321)
- Goldfrapp - Silver Eye (9,007)
