Perfect Strangers follows Jonas Blue's breakthrough single Fast Car, a cover of the Tracy Chapman classic that peaked at Number 2 in February - out-performing the original version's Number 4 peak.

Kent Jones' meteoric rise with his track Don't Mind puts him high on the trending tally, as is Dua Lipa with Hotter Than Hell and Olly Murs with his brand new single You Don't Know Love, which is heading for the Top 20 of the Official Singles Chart come Friday.

Meanwhile, Danish singer MØ makes a strong entry with her latest effort Final Song, which looks set to be her first Top 40 single as a headline artist this week, while the similarly named British girl group M.O hit the trending tally with Who Do You Think Of?, currently up 32 places to Number 54 on the latest Official Singles Chart sales flash. 

Sam Smith's cover of Whitney Houston's How Will I Know? rises following its outing on an episode of ITV2's Love Island, while Fifth Harmony's new single All In My Head (Flex) begins to make waves.

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 Number 1 singles Mike Posner’s I Took A Pill In Ibiza and Drake's One Dance.

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).
