Flo Rida set for sixth UK chart-topper with GDFR

Flo Rida is on track to score his first UK chart-topper in almost three years with GDFR.

GDFR, which features rapper , is taken from Flo Rida's new EP My House (released April 7) and is currently over 8,000 copies ahead of its nearest competitor - reigning Official Singles Chart Number 1 Years & Years’ King.

Flo Rida previously topped the chart with Right Round FT Kesha (2009), Club Can’t Handle Me FT David Guetta (2010), Good Feeling (2011), and as a guest feature on Alexandra Burke’s Bad Boys (2009) and Olly Murs’ Troublemaker (2012).

New at Number 3, Usher is set to score his 19th UK Top 10 this week with Juicy J collaboration I Don’t Mind, while former chart-topper Ellie Goulding’s Love Me Like You Do is down two places to 4.

Rounding out today’s Top 5 is this year’s official Red Nose Day single, Sam Smith’s Lay Me Down FT John Legend (5). The song, which was released on Monday, lands at Number 5 today after jumping six places overnight. All proceeds from Lay Me Down go to Comic Relief.
