Demi Lovato will be Sorry Not Sorry to know she's Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart.
Based on movement up the Official Singles Chart, the Official Trending Chart is the UK's leading countdown of buzzworthy songs predicted to become future hits (the chart's full methodology can be found at the bottom of the page).
The former X Factor USA judge's latest track has been something of a slow burner, climbing steadily since its release eight weeks ago. Sorry Not Sorry leads today's Trending tally, looking set to hit the Official Singles Chart Top 10 for the very first time this Friday (September 8).
Brand new songs impacting strongly include Maroon 5's What Lovers Do featuring rising star SZA, and Taylor Swift's ...Ready For It?, is already making waves after being on sale just 48 hours.
What about songs that haven't made the Official Singles Chart Top 40 yet? Future chart smashes, according to the Trending lineup include Paloma Faith's comeback single Crybaby, Matoma & The Vamps' new collab Staying Up, and Either Way, from Snakehips, Anne-Marie and Joey Badass .
And congratulations to Khalid, who this week features on three trending songs. He features on Marshmello's Silence, and also makes an appearance on 1-800-273-8255, Logic's suicide prevention themed single featuring Alessia Cara – plus there's his solo single Young Dumb & Broke.

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).
