Clean Bandit and Demi Lovato's Solo climbs to Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart

The trio's latest track is shaping up to be another huge hit.

Clean Bandit's new single Solo is shaping up to be another huge hit for the trio as they climb to Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart.

The track, which features Demi Lovato, made a strong debut at Number 12 on the Official Singles Chart less than two weeks ago and looks set to jump into the Top 10 on this Friday's singles Top 40 countdown (June 1).

If Solo holds its position, it'll earn Clean Bandit their ninth Top 10 single and Demi her sixth. Look back at Clean Bandit's Official Chart history in full

Meanwhile, Liam Payne sees his latest single with J Balvin, Familiar, rise on the trending countdown as it sets course for a Top 20 placing on the Official Singles Chart following his performance at Radio 1's The Biggest Weekend, as does George Ezra with the latest spin-off from his chart-topping album Staying At Tamara's, called Shotgun. 

Two Shawn Mendes songs feature in this week's trending Top 20 following the release of his self-titled album, Youth ft. Khalid and popular album track Nervous, while two tracks from A$AP Rocky's new album Testing - Praise The Lord (Da Shine) with Skepta and A$AP Forever ft. Moby - also appear.

Further down, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds land in the rundown as their latest single, She Taught Me How To Fly, is issued on vinyl, and fresh from topping the charts in their native Australia, 5 Seconds Of Summer's Youngblood rounds out the this week's Top 20.

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 Number 1 singles These Days by Rudimental, Eminem's River ft. Ed Sheeran, and Lil Dicky's Freaky Friday.

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).
