It looks like Drake has another big it on his hands as his debut single Laugh Now Cry Later lands at Number 1 on the UK's Official Trending Chart.
Set to be this week’s highest new entry, Laugh Now Cry Later is on course to become Drake’s 17th Top 5 single, and follows a string of hits for the rapper this year including seven Top 20 singles in 2020 alone.
The track will be Lil Durk’s first Official Singles Chart hit, though the US rapper has previously had two Top 40 albums: Love Song 4 The Streets 2 (Number 39 in 2019) and Just Cause Y'all Waited 2 (Number 32 in 2020)
Miley Cyrus also makes a big impact this week as she heads towards a Top 20 debut with her latest track Midnight Sky, her first new solo work since August 2019's Top 40 hit Slide Away. Last Autumn Miley landed at Number 2 with Don’t Call Me Angel, a collaboration with Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey for the soundtrack of the Charlie’s Angels reboot.
Other songs making waves this week include Little Mix's Holiday, with its music video expected very soon; DJ Paul Woolford & Diplo's sad-banger Looking For Me ft. Kareen Lomax continues to grow; and Jason Derulo continues to ride the wave of his recent chart resurgence with Take You Dancing, which is set to climb up the Official Singles Chart for a third consecutive week.
Further down there’s a Dua Lipa double whammy with Levitating and Hallucinate, with the former potentially enjoying its first stint in the Top 40 this week following a remix featuring pop icons Madonna and Missy Elliott.
Burna Boy lands in the trending Top 20 with Real Life ft. Stormzy, taken from his brand-new album Twice as Tall; 17-year old rising Canadian star Tate McRae continues to grow with You Broke Me First, and British rapper Nines makes waves with his new single Clout.
