Brighton chart throb Conor Maynard is locked in a three-way chart battle with Maroon 5 and current chart toppers Florence And The Machine. But who will be Number 1?

Conor Maynard is on track to score this week’s highest new enty with new offering Vegas Girl (Number 3). Vegas Girl is the second single taken from forthcoming debut studio album Contrast, and will be the newcomer’s second Top 5 single to date. Conor rose to public consciousness after winning MTV’s Brand New For 2012 award earlier this year, his debut single Can’t Say No peaked at 2 in April.

Vegas Girl chases current non-movers Maroon 5’s Payphone (2) and the chart-topping Florence And  The Machine’s Spectrum in the race for this week’s race for Number 1.

Stooshe are on course to climb one place from 5 to 4 in Black Heart’s sixth week on chart, while Flo Rida’s summer anthem, Whistle, rounds off the Top 5.
