Can Harry Styles extend As It Was’ lead as 2022’s longest-running Number 1?


Last week, Harry Styles’ As It Was officially became the longest-running Number 1 single of 2022 so far in the UK, overtaking the cast of Encanto’s mega-hit We Don’t Talk About Bruno with a total of eight weeks at the top.  

And it looks like Harry isn’t going anywhere, as he races ahead for a ninth consecutive week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart.  See Harry Styles’ Official Charts history in full here. 

Harry’s bestie Lizzo could be looking to jump up her highest-ever peak in the UK Official Singles Chart with About Damn Time (2), Cat BurnsGo looks to hit a re-peak (3) while Ed Sheeran’s newest hit 2 Step could enter the Top 10 for this first time this Friday (9). 

Ella Henderson could have two singles in the Top 20 this week; with Crazy What Love Can Do with David Guetta and Becky Hill (12) and 21 Reasons with Nathan Dawe (16) both possibly reaching new peaks. This week’s highest new  midweek entry belongs to Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa who team up once again for post-disco jam Potion featuring Young Thug (14).

Diplo & Miguel are eyeing a new peak for their team-up Don’t Forget My Love (31), while there are further possible new entries from Kanye West and the late XXXTentacion with True Love (32) and The K**ts’ Prince Andrew Is A Sweaty N***e (36).

I hope Lizzo gets her first number one this week.

It would be nice but it seems no one can outstream Harry right now until ACR finally ends his reign. I don't think he'll match Bryan Adams 31 year old record.
