Funky Friday by Dave & Fredo reaches Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart

Buzzworthy songs from Lady Gaga, Halsey, and Charli XCX ft. Troye Sivan are making waves this week.

Dave & Fredo debut at Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart.

The Official Trending Top 20 tracks the biggest emerging hits in UK music, based on upward traction on the Official Singles Chart.

With an incredible 1.8 million YouTube views since October 4, playlist topping placings and the most paid-for audio streams for a track so far this week, Dave & Fredo's Funky Friday is proving hugely popular.

Headline-grabbing Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper also impact this week, as Shallow reaches Number 2. The song's accompanying movie A Star Is Born is in cinemas now, and is receiving rave reviews from the public and critics alike. Another song taken from the film titled Always Remember Us This Way, is Number 13 on the trending tally.

Halsey makes a big impression on the countdown, Number 5 this week with her latest single Without Me. The track is the first in a new era for the New Jersey-born singer.

Several big collaborations are also performing well in their opening week on sale, including Lil Baby & Gunna's Never Recover ft. Drake, Polaroid by Jonas Blue ft. Liam Payne & Lennon Stella, and 1999, Charli XCX's throwback bop featuring Troye Sivan.

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 has already highlighted emerging hits such as future Number 1 singles Rudimental's These Days, Shotgun by George Ezra, and Jess Glynne's I'll Be There.

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).
