Seems like Lionel Richie will be saying “hello” to number one in the Official UK Album Chart following a successful Glastonbury performance.

The 66-year-old singer’s greatest hits album ‘The Definitive Collection’ is getting snapped up, which brings it in pole position in the official midweek chart update, a jump of 103 places, the BBC reported.

The ‘Hello’ singer said that when they told him about this, he was screaming like a kid with his first hit record, adding that he is trying to be very calm about this, but there’s no way to do so. “This is like Christmas.”

According to the Official Charts Company, 17 of the top 40 albums in the midweek chart are Glastonbury acts, including The Who, Paloma Faith, James Bay and Jungle.

The first Friday chart will be published on 10 July.
