Unless you've been living under some form of rock or reside in a place with really shit wi-fi, you'll be well aware that Zayn Malik's debut album 'Mind of Mine' is now properly out there and slaying this spherical planet we call Earth. The lad's already broken records by hitting number 1 on iTunes in over 70 countries; and now the UK midweek charts are in.
Yup - Zayn looks set to score his first proper chart-topping record this week as he sits 5000 units ahead of Adele with 25. Y'know, that album we assumed every lad and his Labradoodle already owned?
Ah, he's just a little boy from Bradford and now he's SMASHING IT.
The Official Charts Company (and it doesn't get much more official than that) confirmed that Zayn's currently *just* ahead of Adele in the big number 1 race; with Joe Bonamassa at 3 with Blues of Desperation, Birdy nabbing the number 4 spot with Beautiful Lies and someone else in fifth place. We're not even sure who's in fifth place, to be honest. We don't have the press release to hand.
This all comes after ZAYN CAPITALISED launched the album with his first solo live show at New York's iHeartRadio Theater. You can see exactly what went down over here, if you're interested.
What d'ya make of all this, then? Well proud of the little boy from Bradford? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape, if you fancy. CHEERS.
