Jack Harlow's Lovin On Me becomes UK's Number 1 Trending Song
Described by Jack as a "new era" for his career - and the first solo single he's released since dropping his third album, Jackman, earlier this year - Lovin On Me is a bouncy rap track, which twists a provocative sample from 2005 R&B track Whatever (Bass Solique) by Cadillac Dale, repurposing the song's first verse as it's chorus; "I don't like no whips and chains, you can't tie me down, but you can whip your lovin' on me..."
Originally predicted to debut at Number 2 on the Official Singles Chart, but is now currently in contention to leapfrog past The Beatles' record-breaking current chart-topper Now And Then and claim Number 1 for itself. It would be Jack's first UK Number 1 single. He previously reached the Top 10 on three occasions; with First Class (2), Industry Baby with Lil Nas X (3) and 3D with Jung Kook (5).
Elsewhere on the Official Trending Chart this week, we have new entries from Noah Kahan, looking to jump on the Top 10 success of breakthrough hit Stick Season with another folk-pop viral track (Northern Attitude), PinkPantheress has just released her accomplished and surprising debut album Heaven knows, and the biggest new track from that so far is shaping up to be her team-up with Central Cee (Nice to meet you).
There are also hotshot new debuts from Chase & Status and Stefflon Don (Selecta), Mazza L20, Aitch & Potter Payper (Murdaside), Stray Kids (LaLaLa) and David Guetta and Kim Petras's When We Were Young (The Logical Song) which samples Scooter's Y2K classic The Logical Song.
