Today, Harry Styles marks a mammoth nine weeks at Number 1 in the UK with As It Was. It becomes the longest-running UK Number 1 since Ed Sheeran’s 11-week long reign at Number 1 with Bad Habits last year.
In its ninth consecutive week at Number 1, As It Was racks up over 65,000 chart sales and is still the most-streamed song in the country, with over 7.4 million streams to its name. See Harry’s Official Charts history in full here.
Cat Burns could offer up a challenge to Harry, however, as her breakout hit Go ascends to a new peak (2) and not far behind is Lizzo, whose About Damn Time rises two spots to a new high (3), becoming Lizzo’s highest-peaking single in the UK.
Tion Wayne & La Roux continue to hit new heights with IFTK (7), while Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill returns to the UK Top 10 for the first time since 2012 (8 – more on this story below) and Ed Sheeran’s 2step enters the upper echelons of the chart for the first time (9).
David Guetta, Becky Hill and Ella Henderson are up one with Crazy What Love Can Do also managing a new best position (13) and this week’s highest new entry comes courtesy of Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa and Young Thug with Potion (14) becoming Calvin’s 37th, Dua’s 22nd and Young Thug’s 11th UK Top 40 entry respectively.
Lady Gaga’s Hold My Hand enters the UK Top 40 for the first time (24) following the release of Top Gun: Maverick, while Tom Grennan’s Remind Me hops up three (30) and our final new entry of the week comes courtesy of Kanye West and the late XXXTentacion on True Love (31).
