Elusive DJ-producer KDA scores this week’s Official Singles Chart Number 1 with Turn The Music Louder (Rumble).
The track – which finishes the week over 2,000 combined chart sales ahead of its nearest competitor, One Direction’s Perfect (2) - was originally released as an instrumental before being re-worked to include vocals from Tinie Tempah and Katy B.
“It feels great – as if I’ve been competing with One Direction," KDA told OfficialCharts.com, "The success of this record has happened all by itself - I had no idea what was going to happen when we put it out.
“I always wanted a singer and rapper on this track; and it feels like it’s become one of those songs that people are allowed to like - which is just amazing!”
Turn The Music Louder (Rumble) serves as KDA and Katy B’s first Number 1 single, and Tinie Tempah’s seventh - his most recent being Jess Glynne collaboration Not Letting Go in July.
Elsewhere, The Weeknd’s The Hills scores a new Official Singles Chart peak, up two places to Number 3 today.
Drake’s Hotline Bling slides one place to Number 4 today, followed by Justin Bieber’s What Do You Mean, which secures an eighth stint as most streamed track of the week with over 2.51 million listens in the last seven days.
New entries and high climbers
Canadian DJ and producer Sleepy Tom’s Diplo collaboration Be Right There is this week’s highest climber, up 83 places to Number 8.
Meanwhile, 2014 X Factor winner Ben Haenow scores a second Official Singles Chart Top 40 with his first single since winning the show, Second Hand Heart feat. Kelly Clarkson (21), while Demi Lovato’s Cool For The Summer (39) and Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams (40) both re-enter the Official Singles Chart Top 40.
