Aitch and Ed Sheeran top Official Trending Chart with My G
Aitch and Ed Sheeran have debuted at Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart with their new collaboration, My G.
Taken from Aitch’s debut album Close To Home, My G seems set to become the album’s biggest new track out of the gate, and it’s currently heading for a debut inside the Official Singles Chart Top 10 this Friday.
Currently at Number 7, if My G hangs on it will become Aitch’s eighth and Ed’s mammoth 39th UK Top 10 single, and his fifth of 2022 - following Peru with Fireboy DML (2), The Joker and the Queen (2), Bam Bam with Camila Cabello (7) and 2Step (9). Check out Ed's Official Charts history in full.
Aitch is also currently not doing too bad for himself - in our midweek Official Albums Chart update, Close To Home is currently placed to debut at Number 3, but has stiff competition from Steps and Madonna if it wants to climb all the way.
There are further new entries from BLACKPINK’s comeback track Pink Venom (which could become the K-Pop sirens’ highest-charting UK single yet), Sam Ryder’s post-Eurovision single Somebody and Afrobeats legend Asake’s new track Terminator.
Elsewhere, we have two tracks with the potential for massive uplift this week; Tom Grennan’s uplifting track All These Nights and Lizzo’s Max Martin-produced bop 2 Be Loved (Am I Ready) could both lift up more than 20 places inside the wider chart, thanks to the release of both song’s official music videos.
