Jess Glynne looks set to round off an already successful 2018 with another hit, as her latest single Thursday rises to Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart.
The track tops the list of 20 songs making the biggest impact in the UK this week, based on movement up the Official Singles Chart from the previous Friday (full chart methodology below).
Thursday is the third single from Jess' second album Always In Between, which topped the Official Albums Chart last month. The song is on course to leap into this week's singles chart Top 10, currently up 11 places to Number 7 in the latest sales flash after a performance on the Strictly Come Dancing results show.
If it holds, it'll be her 12th Top 10 single and third from her current album, following I'll Be There (1) and All I Am (7). Check out Jess Glynne's complete Official Chart history here.
Meanwhile, performers on The X Factor's results show - James Arthur and Jonas Blue - are also seeing big gains this week. Jonas Blue's Polaroid, which features Liam Payne and Lennon Stella, is on track to enter this week's singles Top 40, currently at Number 30. Similarly, Arthur's Empty Space is at 38, up 28 spots.
Elsewhere in this week's Official Trending Chart, P!nk's rendition of A Million Dreams from the upcoming Greatest Showman Reimagined album is making waves this week as it charges towards the Top 20, and brand new tracks from Clean Bandit (Baby ft. Marina & The Diamonds and Luis Fonsi) and Benny Blanco (I Found You ft. Calvin Harris) also feature.
Finally, new Little Mix track Joan Of Arc features in the trending Top 20 as they gear up to release their new album LM5.

About the Official Trending Chart
The Official Trending Chart is a brand new chart launched for 2016 to highlight the hottest new tracks beginning to make an impact in the UK every week.
The Top 20 rundown, published on OfficialCharts.com every Tuesday, based on the first four days’ sales of each chart week, is designed to highlight emerging hits as they begin to scale the Official Charts and build buzz.
The Official Trending Chart ranks titles which are showing week-on-week chart growth, and is the only “new music” chart to reflect audio track sales and streams comprehensively across all services.
Devised by the Official Charts Company in close consultation with labels, retailers and media, the chart since launch has already highlighted emerging hits such as future Number 1 singles Rudimental's These Days, Shotgun by George Ezra, and Jess Glynne's I'll Be There.
The chart is designed to help highlight hit singles in their early stages of their growth, in the light of the shift in release strategies of record labels over the past six months. Under “On Air On Sale”, labels have started to release new music for consumers to buy or stream on the same day as those tracks are released to media (including radio stations and TV).
