It appears that many of you have been dance, dance, dancing to the distortion of Katy Perry's new single Chained to the Rhythm.
KP's comeback track, which features Bob Marley's grandson Skip Marley, is Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart, the Top 20 rundown of the UK's freshest tunes making an impact this week, based on movement up the Official Singles Chart (see the bottom of the page for more information on how the chart is compiled).
Chained to the Rhythm, co-written by Sia and produced by serial hitmaker Max Martin, marks Katy's second appearance on the trending tally - her first was for Rise back in 2016, which was released to tie in with the Olympic Games in Rio.
Other potential future hits performing well on this week's Trending Top 20 include Train's latest offering Play That Song, which is expected to climb the Official Singles Chart for a third consecutive week this Friday (Feb 17).
Anne-Marie's second solo single Ciao Adios is also making waves and could be making its Top 40 debut this Friday, according to yesterday's Official Chart Update.
Several songs from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack appear on this week's Official Trending Chart following the film's release last week. The highest entry is Sia's Helium, while Corinne Bailey Rae's cover of Coldplay's The Scientist, and Bom Bidi Bom, the new collaboration from Nick Jonas and Nicki Minaj, also feature.

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 highlighted emerging hits such as Number 1 single One Dance by Drake, and The Chainsmokers & Halsey's chart topper Closer.
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).
