Own It is Stormzy’s third Top 10, while becoming Ed Sheeran’s landmark 40th Top 50 hit this week.
Watermelon Sugar by Harry Styles (17) and Endor’s Pump It Up (18) are now Top 20 hits, and there’s a debut chart entry for Houston singer-songwriter Trevor Daniel with his TikTok featured viral song Falling (25). Just behind is YouTube star KSI who climbs nine places with Down Like That featuring Rick Ross, Lil Baby and S-X (26).
Khalid is this week’s highest climber in the Top 50, up 10 rungs to Number 37 with Up All Night, while returning to the Official Irish Singles Chart is Mariah Carey’s Christmas classic All I Want For Christmas Is You at Number 40; last year, the song reached Number 4.
