Rita Ora climbs to Number 1 on Official Trending Chart

Rita Ora climbs to Number 1 on this week’s Official Trending Chart with her latest single Let You Love Me. 

The track tops the chart of songs making the biggest impact in the UK at the moment, based on movement up the Official Singles Chart since the previous Friday (see full chart methodology below). 

Let You Love Me is the fourth single from Rita’s long awaited second studio album Phoenix, which follows on November 23. The track is on course to climb into the Top 10 on this week’s Official Singles Chart, currently up seven places to Number 8. View Rita Ora’s complete Official Chart history here.

Lady Gaga is also making a big impact on the charts this week as the music from her new film A Star Is Born is released. Shallow, which she performs alongside co-star Bradley Cooper, is set to be the highest new entry on the Official Singles Chart and could be her biggest UK chart debut in five years, since Do What U Want opened at Number 9 in 2013

British producer Sigala is making big gains this week with his latest single Just Got Paid. The song, which features Ella Eyre, Meghan Trainor and French Montana, is surging towards Top 10 – boosted by the release of his debut album Brighter Days. 

Elsewhere on the Official Trending Chart, Lil Wayne scores two entries from his newly released album Tha Carter V, while new singles from DJ Snake, Olly Murs and last year’s X Factor winners Rak-Su are also making waves this week.

About the Official Trending Chart

The Official Trending Chart is a brand new chart launched for 2016 to highlight the hottest new tracks beginning to make an impact in the UK every week.

The Top 20 rundown, published on OfficialCharts.com every Tuesday, based on the first four days’ sales of each chart week, is designed to highlight emerging hits as they begin to scale the Official Charts and build buzz.

The Official Trending Chart ranks titles which are showing week-on-week chart growth, and is the only “new music” chart to reflect audio track sales and streams comprehensively across all services.

Devised by the Official Charts Company in close consultation with labels, retailers and media, the chart since launch has already highlighted emerging hits such as future Number 1 singles Rudimental’s These Days, Shotgun by George Ezra, and Jess Glynne’s I’ll Be There.

The chart is designed to help highlight hit singles in their early stages of their growth, in the light of the shift in release strategies of record labels over the past six months. Under “On Air On Sale”, labels have started to release new music for consumers to buy or stream on the same day as those tracks are released to media (including radio stations and TV).
