Aitch’s Baby ft. Ashanti grappling for Number 1 with Dave’s reigning hit Starlight

The two songs are leading midweek with just a handful of chart sales between them.

It could be a clash of the UK rap titans on the Official Singles Chart this week as Aitch sits at Number 1 on the Official Chart: First Look with Baby ft. Ashanti.

The Manchester rapper is taking on reigning Number 1, Starlight by Dave – and as things stand the songs are neck-and-neck after 48 hours with just a small handful of chart sales separating the two tracks. If Aitch can hold on to his current position it will mark his first ever UK Number 1, and Ashanti’s second.

Meanwhile, Jax Jones could claim a new peak with Where Did You Go? ft. MNEK, up one place to Number 6 on today’s First Look.

Tiesto & Ava Max are eyeing up the Top 10 with The Motto, up three spots to Number 10 after 48 hours. If they keep this momentum The Motto will mark Tiesto’s 5th Top 10 hit in the UK and Ava Max’s second, following her breakout hit Sweet But Psycho which spent four weeks at Number 1 in January 2019.
