They can't do golden rings, but they can do Official Number 1 Awards! Calvin Harris and Sam Smith have hit Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart with their collaboration Promises.
It's a big one for Calvin: Promises is his tenth Top 10 single in the UK, which means he joins the ranks of double-digit chart-toppers like Elvis, Madonna, Take That, and the Beatles. For Sam Smith, it's a seventh Number 1, drawing him level with artists like Michael Jackson, Jess Glynne, Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams, and Elton.

And it doesn't end there: Promises also gives Calvin Harris a new chart record: he's now officially the act with the most Number 1 hits this decade, topping the charts eight times in the 2010s
Sam Smith, currently on tour in the US, told OfficialCharts.com: "I am so overwhelmed that Promises has got to Number 1 back home! Thank you to every single person who has supported this song. And thank you to Calvin for being such a legend. I can’t wait to be home soon. I miss my mum's roast dinners desperately."
