Sigala scores debut Number 1 with Easy Love: “I wrote this song in my bedroom”

Plus: Justin Bieber makes Official Chart history.

Congratulations to Sigala, who scores his first chart-topper this week with Easy Love. The track - which samples Jackson 5’s 1970 Top 10 hit ABC - has racked up a combined chart sales figure of over 82,000 this week, rocketing 71 places to secure the Number 1 position following its full sales release.

 

Sigala told OfficialCharts.com: “This is so amazing. I had no idea this would ever be a Number 1 record. I wrote this song in my bedroom on a Sunday evening after a couple of beers. I had no idea it would go to the top of the charts!”

Elsewhere, Justin Bieber earns himself a place in the Official Charts history books today as What Do You Mean? breaks the UK’s all-time streaming record, clocking up 3.87 million plays in the last seven days. The feat means Justin overtakes previous record-holder Wiz Khalifa’s See You Again feat. Charlie Puth, which counted 3.72 million streams back in April.
