Meghan Trainor scores one of the fastest-selling singles of the year: “It feels unreal!”

Meghan Trainor has rocketed to Number 1 with her debut single All About That Bass, and not only that – it’s one of the fastest sellers of the year so far!

The "body-positive" track has climbed 32 places to the top spot this week, notching up a combined chart tally of nearly 144,000 copies. Clean Bandit’s Rather Be FT Jess Glynne (which sold nearly 163,000 copies in its first week, back in January) holds the record for the highest first week sales of the year.

"It feels unreal! I still don't believe it! Especially on my first single. It's incredible!" Meghan tells OfficialCharts.com.

Not content with just racking up huge sales, last week All About That Bass also became the first song to ever enter the Top 40 based on streams alone. Meghan reflects, "My mom was the first one to tell me I was breaking records in the UK. I had to read it myself to believe it. It feels amazing."

All About That Bass is also the most streamed track of the week, having been listened to nearly 1.4 million times in the last seven days, with streams contributing over 9% of the song’s combined chart sales figure.

Five other tracks have been streamed over 1 million times this week; Calvin HarrisBlame FT John Newman (1.3m), Taylor Swift’s Shake If Off (1.2m), Lilly Wood & Robin Schulz’s Prayer In C (1.2m), Sam Smith’s I’m Not The Only One (1m) and Magic!’s Rude (1m).

Elsewhere in the chart, Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s former chart-topper Bang Bang slides one place today to Number 2, while Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off holds firm at Number 3.

Drum and bass duo Sigma are down two places to Number 4 with Changing FT Paloma Faith, and rounding out the Top 5 is Calvin HarrisBlame FT John Newman (Number 5).
