US Christian hip-hop star NF lands at Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart with his latest track Let You Down.
The 26-year-old - real name Nathan Feuerstein - has released three studio albums since 2015, but Let You Down has become his worldwide breakthrough hit.
Let You Down, which is about NF's relationship with his father, has been steadily climbing up the Official Singles Chart Top 40 for the past six weeks, debuting at Number 40 in October. This week, it's set to gain even further, currently up from 16 to Number 13 in the latest update.
The song has already been a Top 10 hit in Ireland, Sweden, New Zealand and Norway and is currently scaling the Billboard Hot 100 in America.
Meanwhile, Louis Tomlinson makes a strong entry on the Official Trending Chart with his latest track Miss You, as does P!nk with her new single Beautiful Trauma and new US boyband Prettymuch with No More ft. French Montana. Each performed their singles on this year's X Factor final last weekend.
Speaking of which, this year's series champions, Rak-Su also feature in the Top 20 with their self-written winner's single Dimelo.
Finally, Taylor Swift sees two songs, Gorgeous and the Ed Sheeran/Future-assisted End Game, impact this week's trending Top 20 following the release of her latest album Reputation on streaming services.

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).
