French Montana's Unforgettable dances its way to Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart

Unforgettable's dance craze has caused the track to create huge buzz this week.

French Montana won't forget this in a hurry.

Unforgettable, the song behind the huge Unforgettable Dance Challenge that has gone viral across the world, is Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart.

First charting three weeks ago, the Swae Lee-featuring track has gained in popularity week-on-week, and is now the UK's biggest buzzworthy future hit, as detailed in this week's trending tally. A Number 1 position on the Official Trending Chart is a huge indication that a track is about to become a massive hit. With a viral campaign already behind it, Unforgettable has all the makings of a future Top 10 smash.

That future could become reality this Friday as the track is predicted to break into the Top 10 on the Official Singles Chart on Friday, a chart climb that translates to glory on the Official Trending Chart.

About the Official Trending Chart

The Official Trending Chart was launched in 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 has highlighted emerging hits such as Number 1 single One Dance by Drake, and The Chainsmokers & Halsey's chart topper Closer.

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).
