Olivia Rodrigo and The Kid Laroi Duel For U.K. Chart Title

After the first 48 hours in the chart week, the strongest debut belongs to TikTok star Nathan Evans with his sea shanty debut single “Wellerman.”

The 26-year-old Scotsman made quite a buzz when video of his traditional sea shanty went viral on TikTok, and landed him a record deal with Polydor. Now, he’s quit his job as a quit as postman and he’s eyeing a U.K. hit single, his first.

“Wellerman” is the most downloaded song of the week so far, according to the Official Charts Company, and it’s the No. 4 ranked song on the First Look chart, just behind Little Mix’s “Sweet Melody.”

The Official U.K. Singles Chart is published late Friday local time.
