After catching us all off guard with their collaboration, Little Mix and CNCO land straight in at Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart with Reggaeton Lento.
The track - a remix of the song originally by CNCO only - tops the list of 20 songs making the biggest impact in the UK this week, based on movement up the Official Singles Chart (full chart methodology can be found at the bottom of the page).
Reggaeton Lento is currently locked in a three-way battle for Number 1 on this week's Official Singles Chart, up against Dua Lipa's New Rules and Justin Bieber & BloodPop®'s Friends. The original version of the song has already been a huge hit across South America and has notched up over 1 billion views on YouTube.
Bieber and BloodPop®'s collaboration Friends is also vying for this week's top spot and finds itself making a strong entry on the trending chart. Producer BloodPop® is responsible for Bieber's global smash Sorry, as well as hits for Lady Gaga, Haim and more, but this is the first time he's been credited as an artist on a release.
Elsewhere on this week's trending Top 20, US rock band Portugal. The Man are making waves with Feel It Still. The song, which is on course to climb into the Official Singles Chart Top 40 this week, has been featured on numerous TV adverts in recent months, including Apple's new iPad Pro.
Meanwhile, singles released last Friday (Aug 18) that are already making an impact are Chris Brown's Questions, the third single from his upcoming ninth studio album Heartbreak On A Full Moon, and the title track from Miley Cyrus's forthcoming set.

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 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).
