Calvin Harris on track for fifth Number 1 single

Calvin Harris is on track for his fifth Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart this week.

The producer and DJ’s latest track Blame, which features soul singer John Newman, is currently leading the tally on this week’s Chart Update following its worldwide premiere last weekend.

If the song manages to hold its lead, Blame will join Calvin’s four previous chart-toppers as a lead artist; I’m Not Alone (2009), Sweet Nothing (2012), Under Control (2013) and Summer (2014). He has also scored two Number 1s as a featured artist; on Dance Wiv Me (2008, with Dizzee Rascal) and  We Found Love (2011, with Rihanna).

Meanwhile, elusive house producer Mario Basanov aka Ten Walls climbs a massive 181 places to Number 3 with Walking With Elephants. The song, which gets its full download release this week, was originally released on an EP earlier this year and has since found success in the clubs across Europe this summer.

Aussie band 5 Seconds of Summer are on course for their third UK Top 5 hit with Amnesia, which jumps 34 places to Number 4 on today’s Update, and Taylor Swift rounds out the Top 5 with Shake It Off.

New entries and high climbers

Chris Brown is on course for his tenth Top 10 hit this weekend with New Flame, which features Usher and rapper Rick Ross. The song serves as the fifth single from his new album X, which is released on September 15.

Following its regular outings on The X Factor, A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera’s Say Something re-enters at Number 13. The track peaked at Number 4 in the UK earlier this year and logs is 12th non-consecutive week in the Top 40.

The Official Singles Chart Update Top 40 is as follows. The Official Singles Chart Top 100 will be posted in full, here, on Sunday at 7pm.
