After her record-breaking first week last week, it was always going to be tough to shift Adele from the top of the Official Singles Chart.
Hello, which is the fastest-selling single of 2015 and last week set a new one-week streaming record with over 7.32 million listens, holds on to Number 1 for a second week, and has already been certified Gold by the BPI.

Adele’s tenure at the top keeps Justin Bieber’s Sorry at Number 2 for another week, racking up an impressive 4.41 million listens, while Sam Smith’s Bond theme Writing’s On The Wall climbs back up one place to Number 3.
The Weeknd’s The Hills rises a place to 4 and Drake’s Hotline Bling slides two to Number 5.
