Avicii and Rita Ora's Lonely Together hits Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart

Plus listen to the Top 20 new singles impacting in the UK this week, including Niall Horan, Craig David and a Lorde remix.

Avicii's comeback continues to gather apace as his collaboration with Rita Ora, called Lonely Together, reaches Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart. 

The track tops the list of the songs making a big impression in the UK this week, based on movement up the Official Singles Chart.

Taken from his AVĪCI (01) EP, released last month, Lonely Together has been scaling the Official Singles Chart for the last five weeks and looks set to zoom into this week's Top 10, currently up 13 places to Number 8. 

The recent boost has in part come from increased radio play and a performance of the song by Rita on BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing.

Lonely Together is on track to become Avicii's ninth Top 10 on the Official Singles Chart and marks his return to the top tier in over two years, since Waiting For Love reached Number 6 in June 2015. 

Elsewhere, tracks released last Friday (Sept 15) from Niall Horan (Too Much To Ask), Post Malone (Rockstar) and Craig David (Heartline) impact the Official Trending Chart - all are set to enter the Official Singles Top 40 this Friday (Sept 22).

Sampha also earns a spot on the trending Top 20 with (No One Knows Me) Like The Piano following his Mercury Prize win last week, Foo Figthers' Run is proving popular after the release of their new album Concrete Gold, and Lorde's Homemade Dynamite appears following the release of a remix with Khalid, Post Malone and SZA.

About the Official Trending Chart

The Official Trending Chart was launched in 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 highlighted emerging hits such as Number 1 singles Sign Of The Times by Harry Styles, New Rules by Dua Lipa and Taylor Swift's Look What You Made Me Do.

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).
