Clean Bandit are set to knock Pharrell Williams off the top of the Official Singles Chart this weekend with Rather Be FT Jess Glynne.
Fresh-faced London four piece, Clean Bandit, are heading for their first UK Number 1 with new track, Rather Be FT Jess Glynne, according to today’s Official Singles Chart Update.
Clean Bandit made their Official Chart debut early last year with the infectious Mozart’s House, peaking at Number 17, and now they are eyeing pole position this weekend with their latest offering, Rather Be.
Based on the latest Official Charts Company sales data, Rather Be has sold nearly 94,000 copies in the UK this week, should it maintain its lead through to Sunday’s final whistle, Rather Be will not only become Clean Bandit’s first ever Number 1, it is also on track to become the fastest selling single of 2014 so far. The current record holder, Pitbull and Ke$ha’s Timber had sold 82,000 at this same stage in its first week of release, and 138,000 copies total by the end of its first week.
The Vamps are on track to bag themselves another Top 5 single this weekend. Wild Heart, the pop rockers’ follow-up to their debut single, Can We Dance, is new in at Number 2 today.
Pharrell’s Happy is down two places to Number 3 today. Girl group Neon Jungle are new in at Number 4 with their second single, Braveheart, while Pitbull and Ke$ha’s Timber is down three places from Number 5.
