You can always rely on Rita Ora for a bit of chart action and new single I Will Never Let You Down certainly lives up to its title. The 23-year-old Londoner’s first new release in over a year has zoomed into the lead in this week’s singles race ahead of reigning chart topper Mr Probz.
Should Rita manage to retain her lead through to the weekend, I Will Never Let You Down will become her fourth Number 1 overall, following her feature on DJ Fresh’s Hot Right Now, and solo chart-toppers R.I.P. and How We Do (Party).
Mr Probz, who spent his second non-consecutive week at Number 1 with Waves, slips a place to Number 2 in today’s update while John Legend’s All Of Me shows no signs of falling out of favour this week, the track continues its yo-yoing inside the Top 5, rising back up one place to Number 3. Summer, the former Number 1 from Mr Rita Ora, aka Calvin Harris, drops another two places to Number 4 at this midway stage.
Calm After The Storm, a huge climber from Netherlands’ Eurovision act Common Linnets rounds off today’s Top 5. Find out more about the Eurovision entries in today's Update.
Australian YouTube stars The Janoskians are on course to nab their very first Top 40 hit with Real Girls Eat Cake debuting at Number 22.
Further down Michael Jackson’s Love Never Felt So Good also enjoys a surge – it climbs 13 places to Number 11, while US hip-hop star Twista is in with a shot at returning to the Top 40 hit this week with Hope FT Faith Evans, new at Number 36 following its appearance on Britain’s Got Talent.
It’s been a big week for Eurovision 2014 songs, with FIVE entrants from Saturday night’s glittering event grabbing a Top 40 placing in today’s update. Take a look at which international favourites are making an impact on the Official Singles Chart at this midway stage.
