Their new collaboration Wasted samples T2 and Jodie Aysha’s 2007 garage hit ‘Heartbroken’ and starts out at Number 6, while Ed Sheeran's Bad Habits is on course for an eighth week at Number 1, boosted by his latest drill remix featuring Tion Wayne and Central Cee.
Joel Corry and Jax Jones get together on new dancefloor banger OUT OUT featuring Charli XCX and Saweetie, the track which samples Stromae’s 2009 Europop smash Alors On Danse opens at Number 17.
Lizzo tags in Cardi B for her comeback track Rumors (19) – her first single since debut album Cuz I Love You. The fiercely unapologetic clapback track attempts to dismantle the gossip and haters and lands the pair a Top 20 entry midweek in the process.
Just outside tonight’s Official Chart First Look Top 20 lands Elton John and Dua Lipa’s brand new track Cold Heart, a mash-up of Elton classics Rocket Man and Sacrifice remixed by Pnau. The icon surprised holiday makers in Cannes when he popped up in La Guerite beach restaurant for an impromptu performance of the song which opens at Number 24 in this week’s Official Chart race.
After greeting his fellow restaurant guests, Sir Elton spoke over the intro to his song and said: ‘During lockdown I made this single – it came out yesterday – with Dua Lipa. So, I want you all to dance on your table and wave your hands and your handkerchiefs!’

Highest climber of the week so far comes courtesy of Nigerian superstar Wizkid. Essence ft. Tems, the fourth single from Made In Lagos, has enjoyed a steady nine-week climb up the UK Official Chart, entering the Top 40 for the first time on Friday. Set to be propelled even higher this week by a new remix featuring Justin Bieber, Essence is currently up 17 places midweek to Number 18, if it maintains its momentum Wizkid will snatch a personal best on Friday - his first ever UK Top 20 hit as a lead artist. Wizkid also guested on Drake's massive Number 1 hit One Dance back in 2016. See where all of Wizkid's songs charted in the UK.
Plus big climbs are in progress after 48 hours for Rain Radio and DJ Craig Gorman who fly all the way into the midweek Top 10 with Talk About (7), while Dance Monkey queen Tones & I rockets ten places to Number 9 with Fly Away, and Anne-Marie & Little Mix’s Kiss My (Uh Oh) ascends six rungs to Number 14.
