Congratulations to Jess Glynne, who not only tops this week’s Official Singles Chart, but enters the Official Charts history books!
Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself leaps a massive 77 places to Number 1 to give Jess her fifth Number 1 single; matching Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s record for the most chart-toppers for a British solo female on the Official Singles Chart.
The singer has also achieved the feat quickly; in just 18 months, compared to five years for Cheryl. Jess' previous chart leaders are Rather Be (with Clean Bandit in Feb 2014), My Love (with Route 94 in March 2014), Hold My Hand (April 2015) and Not Letting Go (with Tinie Tempah in July 2015).

“I can’t even begin to explain how awesome it feels to have Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself go to Number 1!" Jess told us.
"The past few months have been one long, emotional journey so to come back to so much love and support is insanely amazing. I just want to say a massive THANK YOU. This is the best feeling ever!"
Meanwhile, last week’s Number 1 Marvin Gaye by Charlie Puth slips to 2, and Calvin Harris & Disciples’ How Deep Is Your Love is at 3. The song is this week’s most streamed track for a second week, with 2.36 million plays.
Rounding off the Top 5 are The Weeknd’s Can’t Feel My Face (4), and French producer Martin Solveig is this week’s highest climber, vaulting 103 places to Number 5 with his GTA collaboration Intoxicated.
