The promise of a Calvin Harris and Sam Smith collaboration has more than delivered, landing straight in at Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart.
The pair's new single Promises takes pole position on the Top 20 chart of songs making the biggest impact this week, based on movement up the Official Singles Chart.
The song is looking very likely to debut inside the Top 10 on this week's Official Singles Chart, currently at Number 5 in the latest update. Promises follows Calvin's huge Number 1 single One Kiss with Dua Lipa. Dua has already given her seal of approval to Promises, tweeting: "I’ve literally listened to Promises on repeat and this song is so f**king good".
Ariana Grande also makes a huge impact on the trending chart following the release of her new album Sweetener. Breathin' and the title track are proving the most popular songs from the record, which is heading for Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart.
Elsewhere, Jess Glynne is off a strong start with her latest track All I Am, set for a Top 20 debut on the singles chart, as is The 1975's new single TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME.
After entering the Top 40 last week, David Guetta and Anne-Marie's Don't Leave Me Alone is expected to make another leap up the chart this week, and the Baby Shark song by Pinkfong is trending as the catchy children's song goes viral online and zooms up the Top 100.

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).
