Midweek Charts Update posted: 25/03/19

Fabulous news about "Coming Home To You": It hit the coveted #1 spot in the midweek charts. What does this mean? It's not (yet) the end of the first week of it's release. Those charts will be determined on Friday, but they publish midweeks, which do, what it says on the tin. Within the midweeks Michael is at no 1 and with a good chance to keep that space until the end of the week. It always helps to give him a push. So, if you still need a good present, get this album another time and support him.
