DJ Khaled and Rihanna's Wild Thoughts dethrones Despacito from Official Singles Chart top spot

Plus there are entries from The Script, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez on this week's Official Singles Chart Top 40.

DJ Khaled has ended Despacito’s reign at the top to claim his second Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart.

Wild Thoughts – featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller - climbs a place to 1 after three weeks at Number 2. It gives the Miami producer his second Number 1 single this year, while Rihanna claims her ninth and first in almost four years, since 2013’s The Monster with Eminem.

Rihanna also matches Abba and Spice Girls’ tally of chart-toppers and becomes only the tenth act to claim nine or more Number 1s on the Official Singles Chart.

Wild Thoughts samples Santana’s Maria Maria, which peaked at Number 6 in 2000.
