Jess Glynne Hold My Hand tops Official Singles Chart for second week

The singer-songwriter fends off competition from Ed Sheeran & Rudimental to claim a second week at the chart summit.

Jess Glynne claims a second week at Number 1 on today’s Official Singles Chart.

The singer-songwriter ousts midweek leaders Ed Sheeran and Rudimental to extend her reign at the top with combined chart sales of just over 80,000, including 1.62 million streams.

Meanwhile, Sheeran’s Bloodstream climbs 24 places to Number 2, finishing just 5,000 copies behind Glynne. The song, which was reworked with London-based collective Rudimental for its single release, was streamed 1.28 million times this week.

James Bay’s Hold Back The River takes third place, while Years & Years are a Number 4 with King and claim this week’s most streamed song (1.96 million streams), and Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk rebounds three places to Number 5.  

New entries and high climbers

Sia’s Elastic Heart reaches a new peak on the tally at Number 10. The song, which she performed on last week’s The Voice UK, climbs 13 places to earn her a sixth UK Top 10. Further down the chart, the Aussie singer’s track Chandelier is at 29 and celebrates its 40th  consecutive week in the Top 40.

New at Number 19 is Dappy’s Beautiful Me. The ballad marks the N-Dubz star’s first appearance on the Top 40 in three years and previously topped the chart with No Regrets in 2011.

Elsewhere, Olly Murs’ Seasons makes its Top 40 debut at 34, OMI’s Cheerleader enters the Top 40 ahead of its official release (May 3) on streams alone at 37, and former X Factor contestant Luke Friend bows at 40 with his debut single Hole In My Heart
