Maroon 5's latest single featuring SZA, What Lovers Do, has climbed to Number 1 on the latest Official Trending Chart.

The track tops the list of 20 songs that are making the biggest impact in the UK this week, based on movement up the Official Singles Chart. 

Released six weeks ago, What Lovers Do entered the Official Singles Chart at 23 and has steadily climbed since. The track is on course to enter the Top 10 this Friday (Oct 20), currently up three places in the latest sales flash. If it holds its position, it will be their tenth UK Top 10 single following last year's Don't Wanna Know ft. Kendrick Lamar. See where all the band's singles and albums have charted here.

Meanwhile, rising star Khalid makes two entries on this week's trending Top 20. The first is with Silence, his collaboration with producer Marshmello, as well as with his own headline track Young, Dumb & Broke. Both are on track to make sizeable leaps up this week's Official Singles Chart Top 20. 

Singer-songwriter Charlie Puth is also making strides with his latest track How Long, as is Anne-Marie's Heavy following the release of the song's accompanying video.

Elsewhere, brand new tracks released last Friday (Oct 13) that impact this week's Official Trending Chart include Pink and Eminem's Revenge from the former's newly released Beautiful Trauma album, Dappy's latest offering Spotlight, and The Vamps' new collaboration with Maggie Lindemann, called Personal. Maggie scored a Top 10 hit earlier this year with the Cheat Codes remix of her track Pretty Girl.

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).
