Kygo & Whitney Houston’s fast-rising summer hit Higher Love tops this week's Official Trending Chart as it sets course for the Top 10 on the Official Singles Chart this Friday, currently sitting at Number 8 on the midweek update.
The song, which has been ascending the Top 40 the past five weeks, was originally covered the song back in 1990, but it was a lesser-known recording due to it only appearing on the Japanese edition of her 1990 album I’m Your Baby Tonight. Now, it could become Whitney’s first Top 10 single for a decade.
Meanwhile, Joel Corry’s breakout single Sorry enjoys a huge boost after featuring on an episode of Love Island last week, and looks set to enter this week's Top 40.
The latest track by New York rapper, singer and songwriter Lil Tecca, called Ransom, is also growing this week, while two brand-new songs are already making a big impact in the UK: Gold Roses by Rick Ross featuring Drake, and Taylor Swift’s latest album track The Archer.
Elsewhere, Liam Gallagher’s Once - the third single from his upcoming album Why Me? Why Not - is also making waves on this week's trending Top 20, plus Bad & Boujie, a mega collaboration between rappers AJ, Geko, Ard Adz and Koomz, is off to a strong start.
