Jess Glynne holds off Nick Jonas to claim third week at Number 1

Despite strong competition, Jess Glynne's Hold My Hand still rules the Official Singles Chart.

Earlier this week, it looked like Jess Glynne’s time at the Number 1 spot was up, but despite strong challenges from Nick Jonas and The Voice UK winner Stevie McCrorie, Hold My Hand gives the British singer-songwriter a third week atop the Official Singles Chart.

Buoyed by over 1.74 million streams, Jess Glynne lands at the summit almost 5,000 chart sales ahead of Nick Jonas, whose debut solo single Jealous has to settle for Number 2 this week, rising 111 places.

Former Number 1 from Years & Years, King, goes back up one place to Number 3, and was also this week’s most streamed song, notching up over 1.87 million listens!

BRITs Critics’ Choice winner James Bay falls one place to Number 4 with Hold Back The River, spending a sixth week in the Top 10, and rounding off our Top 5 is Ed Sheeran’s Bloodstream, which falls three places.

New entries

Stevie McCrorie was leading at the midweek stage, but today he scores a brand new entry at Number 6 on the Official Singles Chart. His version of Adam Levine’s Lost Stars makes Stevie the highest charting winner from The Voice UK, which he won last Saturday, overtaking series two victor Andrea Begley’s recording of Evanescence’s My Immortal, which reached Number 30 back in 2013.

Dutch dance duo Pep & Rash debut at Number 17 with Rumors, while Wiz Khalifa scores a seventh Top 40 hit – See You Again FT Charlie Puth is new at Number 22 today, thanks to huge numbers of streams. The track is the third most listened-to song of the week, racking up 1.8 million plays.

Meghan Trainor scores a third Top 40 hit, as Dear Future Husband climbs eight places to land at Number 40.
