It’s close…but who’s gonna be smiling come Sunday?

Earlier this week we reported that Avenged Sevenfold were set to land their first ever UK number one album with Hail To The King. Today we’ve been informed that current number two album – garage/r’n’b newcomer Naughty Boy’s Hotel Cabana – is making up some serious ground on Hail To The King, meaning that this could be the closest battle the UK album charts have seen so far this year.

With just over a day left, who’s gonna make a little bit of history? Will Avenged hold on? We guess we’ll just have to wait until Sunday to find out…
