The Official Streaming Chart is compiled by the Official Charts Company on behalf of the British music industry, and has been running since May. It is the first chart which ranks audio streams from both ad-funded and subscription streaming services in the UK, which reflects the increasing interest in the new generation of music services such as Spotify, Deezer, Napster and We7.
Former Official Singles Chart Number 1, Diamonds by Rihanna, surges up nine places to Number 2 on this week’s chart, knocking The Script FT Will.I.Am’s Hall Of Fame into third place. Taylor Swift’s We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together holds firm at Number 4, while Mumford And Sons complete this week’s Top 5 with I Will Wait at Number 5.
Calvin Harris FT Florence Welch’s Sweet Nothing (Number 33) leads the charge of ten new entries on this week’s Official Streaming Chart. Leona Lewis FT Childish Gambino’s Trouble is new in at Number 41, while Jake Bugg, who denied Leona her third Official Albums Chart Number 1 on Sunday with his self-titled full-length, has three new entries - Two Fingers (44), Lightning Bolt (61) and Taste It (82).
