Dave scores second UK Number 1 as Starlight becomes fastest-selling single of the year

Encanto's seven-week long reign on the Official Singles Chart has come to an end.

Dave’s Starlight has debuted straight at the top of the Official Singles Chart. It marks the acclaimed rapper’s second UK Number 1 single, following 2018’s Funky Friday featuring Fredo. 

Starlight arrives at Number 1 with combined chart sales of 63,000, including 7.7 million streams, the biggest opening week for any track this year. It’s also the first song to debut straight in at Number 1 this year too. See Dave’s Official Charts history in full

Australian DJ Luude also cracks the Top 5 for the first time with Down Under featuring Men At Work’s Colin Hay rising to Number 5, a new peak.  

Several tracks inside the Top 10 also see some upward momentum this week; with Sam Fender’s Seventeen Going Under (6), Mimi Webb’s House on Fire (7) and Overseas by D-Block Europe featuring Central Cee (8) all shifting up one place.

With Peru now on its 6th week at #2, does it now hold the record of spending the second most weeks at the runner-up spot (only behind Moves like Jagger)?

Funky Friday is almost 3.5 years old (October 2018)? Dang.

Dave doesn't look any older.
