Noah Kahan’s ‘Stick Season’ On Track For U.K. No. 1

Music

Last week, it was festive season on the U.K. singles chart. Now we’re entering Stick Season.

Noah Kahan is on track to snag the first U.K. No. 1 single of 2024 – and the first of his career – with “Stick Season” (via Republic Records), which leads the midweek chart.

The Vermont, U.S.-born singer and songwriter should benefit as Christmas songs make their annual migration from the weekly chart, including last week’s leader, Wham’s “Last Christmas” (Epic).

“Stick Season” is expect to lift 10-1, for its first stint at the summit in its 14th week on chart, having previously peaked at No. 2, just last month.

Jack Harlow’s ex-leader “Lovin On Me” (Atlantic) is forecast to bounce 27-2, while Tate McRae’s “greedy” (Ministry of Sound) could return to podium, up 37-3 on the chart blast. Those three titles were the only non-Christmas themed recordings in the U.K. top 40 when the weekly chart was published last week.

Meanwhile, Sophie Ellis-Bextor is set for a return to the top 40 return with “Murder on the Dancefloor” (Polydor), powered by the 2001 pop song’s sync in Emerald Fennell’s dark feature film Saltburn. Lifted from the British artist’s debut full-length LP Read My Lips, “Murder” peaked at No. 2 followings its release more than two decades ago. It’s at No. 27 on the chart blast.

Finally, The Weeknd, BLACKPINK’s Jennie and Lily-Rose Depp should earn a new peak position with “One of the Girls” (Republic Records/XO). Lifted from 2023 HBO drama The Idol, “One of the Girls” is tracking for No. 20, well up on its previous peak of No. 60.

All will be revealed when the Official U.K. Singles Chart is published Friday, Jan. 5.
