Noah Kahan Set to Extend ‘Stick Season’ Streak – Billboard

Written by on 23/01/2024


It’s Noah Kahan season in the U.K., as the American singer songwriter looks set to extend his reign over the singles chart, and separately land the top debut.

The Vermont artist’s folky hit “Stick Season” (via Republic Records) appears set to capture a fourth consecutive chart crown. Based on midweek sales and streaming data published by the Official Charts Company, “Stick Season” mounts a lead of 7,000 chart units over its nearest rival.

That rival is Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s “Murder on the Dancefloor” (Polydor), which keeps grooving thanks to its prominent sync in the black-as-coal drama Saltburn. Originally released back in 2001, “Murder on the Dancefloor” is forecast to rebound 3-2, to equal its best chart position.

Kahan should snag the week’s top debut with “Homesick,” his collaboration with British singer and songwriter Sam Fender. “Homesick,” a version of which appears on Kahan’s Stick Season album, is expected to give both artists their second U.K. top 10 single.

Meanwhile, Benson Boone, the U.S.-born singer, multi-instrumentalist and TikTok star, who was named as MTV’s Global PUSH Artist for October 2023, is on target for his first U.K. top 20 appearance with “Beautiful Things” (Warner Records). It’s new at No. 16 on the Official Chart Update. Previously, Boone nudged the chart at No. 46 with 2021’s “Ghost Town,” and cracked the top 40 for the first time with 2022’s “In The Stars,” peaking at No. 21.

Finally, Becky Hill and Sonny Fodera are eyeing a top 40 debut with their collaborative effort, “Never Be Alone” (Polydor). It’s new at No. 26 on the chart blast, and is set to give Hill, the English singer and songwriter, her 19th U.K. top 40 single, a tally that includes a No. 1 with Oliver Heldens on 2014’s “Gecko (Overdrive)”; and Fodera, the Australian DJ and producer, his second.

All will be revealed when the Official U.K. Singles Chart is published Friday, Jan. 26.
