Ariana Grande's new single God Is A Woman lands straight in at Number 1 on the UK's Official Trending Chart.
The track, released last Friday (July 13) enters in pole position of the Top 20 chart, which is based on new songs climbing up the Official Singles Chart Top 200.
God Is A Woman serves as the second official single from Ariana's forthcoming album Sweetner, which follows on August 17 (read about more albums coming out in 2018 here). The track made a huge splash on its release day, with its accompanying music video being decoded by fans and featuring Madonna quoting lines from cult movie classic Pulp Fiction.
Since then, the song has climbed to Number 5 in the latest Official Singles Chart Update, and looks set to secure a Top 10 debut this week.
Other tracks making waves this week include 5 Seconds of Summer's Youngblood, which is set to enter the Official UK Top 10 this week, and Tiesto's Jackie Chan ft. Dzeko, Preme & Post Malone, also on course to climb into the Top 10. If both can hold their current position, both acts will earn their first Top 10 single in four years.
Elsewhere, Cheat Codes and Little Mix's Only You continues to grow on the chart following the release of its emotional music video, and new singles from Childish Gambino (Summertime Magic) and US rap-pop duo twenty one pilots (Jumpsuit) also feature in this week's Official Trending Chart.

About the Official Trending Chart
The Official Trending Chart is a brand new chart launched for 2016 to highlight the hottest new tracks beginning to make an impact in the UK every week.
The Top 20 rundown, published on OfficialCharts.com every Tuesday, based on the first four days’ sales of each chart week, is designed to highlight emerging hits as they begin to scale the Official Charts and build buzz.
The Official Trending Chart ranks titles which are showing week-on-week chart growth, and is the only “new music” chart to reflect audio track sales and streams comprehensively across all services.
Devised by the Official Charts Company in close consultation with labels, retailers and media, the chart since launch has already highlighted emerging hits such as Number 1 singles These Days by Rudimental, Eminem's River ft. Ed Sheeran, and Lil Dicky's Freaky Friday.
The chart is designed to help highlight hit singles in their early stages of their growth, in the light of the shift in release strategies of record labels over the past six months. Under “On Air On Sale”, labels have started to release new music for consumers to buy or stream on the same day as those tracks are released to media (including radio stations and TV).
