Post Malone is Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart thanks to new album beerbongs and bentleys

Two Postey songs are making a huge impression this week.

Post Malone takes the top two spots on this week's Official Trending Chart with tracks from his new album beerbongs and bentleys.

The US rapper released his second studio album last Friday (April 27) and is on course to debut at Number 1 on this week's Official Albums Chart.

Leading the way on the trending Top 20 is album cut Paranoid, while Better Now is in second place. Both are on track to be the two highest new entries on this week's Official Singles Chart, currently places at Numbers 10 and 11 respectively. Read this week's Official Chart Update in full.

Elsewhere, David Guetta and Sia's latest collaboration Flames continues to grow, set to break the Top 20 on the Official Singles Chart, while Paloma Faith's latest single Make Your Own Kind Of Music is also making a big impact this week. The track, which features on the new Skoda advert, is on course to enter this week's Top 40. 

Further down, Rob Doherty's You're Amazing - a charity single released earlier this year in support of toddler Alfie Evans who was at the centre of a long-running legal battle over his treatment - is climbing back up the chart following his tragic death.

Finally, other songs making waves this week include No Roots by German-Canadian-English Alice Merton, and rising star HRVY is seeing an uplift for his new single Hasta Luego, a duet with Cuban star Malu Trevejo. Read more about HRVY here, including his current obsession with stalking fans on Instagram.

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 already highlighted emerging hits such as Number 1 singles Mike Posner’s I Took A Pill In Ibiza and Drake's One Dance.

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).
