Danish band Lukas Graham could claim this week’s Number 1 single with their latest single 7 Years.
The soul-pop quartet’s debut UK release has pushed last week’s chart-topper - Zayn’s Pillowtalk – down to Number 2 on today’s Official Chart Update and currently leads the pack by 5,000 combined sales.
Lukas Graham’s 7 Years has already proved a huge success across Europe, hitting Number 1 in Sweden, Austria and their homeland Denmark. The track has been charging up the UK Top 40 since its release last month, entering at Number 24 and climbing to Number 6 last week.
Meanwhile, making up the rest of today’s Chart Update Top 5 are Jonas Blue’s Fast Car (3), Shawn Mendes’ Stitches (4) and Rihanna’s Work (5).
