Following his surprise double single release, Drake leads the way on this week's Official Trending Chart.
Both the rapper/singer's latest efforts One Dance and Pop Style make huge gains on the trending Top 20 after their unexpected unveiling last Tuesday (April 5).
One Dance, which features Wizkid & Kyla (and samples Kyla's 2008 song Do You Mind), is currently on course to become Drake's first UK Number 1 as a headline artist on this week's Official Singles Chart, while Pop Style looks set to enter the Top 40, currently at 29.
Another track that features highly on this week's trending chart - which tracks the songs making a significant impact in the UK this week - is Meghan Trainor's No. The single has been scaling the Top 100 for the last five weeks and receives a big boost this week thanks to her performances on The Graham Norton Show and The Voice UK final.
New releases from Benny Benassi and will.i.am also hit this week's Official Trending Chart. Benassi's Chris Brown collaboration Paradise and will.i.am's Boys & Girls featuring Pia Mia are both on course to enter this week's singles Top 40 following their release last Friday (April 8).
Finally, US DJ duo The Chainsmokers make two appearances on this week's trending Top 20, with their latest effort Roses and brand new track Don't Let Me Down.

About the Official Trending Chart
The Official Trending Chart is a brand new chart launched for 2016 to highlight the hottest new tracks beginning to make an impact in the UK every week.
The Top 20 rundown, published on OfficialCharts.com every Tuesday, based on the first four days’ sales of each chart week, is designed to highlight emerging hits as they begin to scale the Official Charts and build buzz.
The Official Trending Chart ranks titles which are showing week-on-week chart growth, and is the only “new music” chart to reflect audio track sales and streams comprehensively across all services.
Devised by the Official Charts Company in close consultation with labels, retailers and media, the chart since launch last month has already highlighted emerging hits such as Zara Larrsson’s Lush Life and Mike Posner’s I Took A Pill In Ibiza, both tracks went on to become Top 5 smashes in the Official Singles Chart.
The chart is designed to help highlight hit singles in their early stages of their growth, in the light of the shift in release strategies of record labels over the past six months. Under “On Air On Sale”, labels have started to release new music for consumers to buy or stream on the same day as those tracks are released to media (including radio stations and TV).
