Ne-Yo, The Script and P!nk lock horns in Official Singles Chart battle

US R&B star Ne-Yo leads an incredibly tight singles race today with new single Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself).

The track, produced by Stargate, features a chorus co-written by Australian singer/songwriter Sia Furler, who has also collaborated on two of 2012’s Top 10 biggest selling singles – David Guetta’s Titanium and Flo Rida’s Wild Ones. Ne-Yo faces stiff competition this week, as just a little over 2,000 copies separate Let Me Love You... from new entries from The Script and P!nk.

Judges of BBC’s The Voice, Danny O’Donoghue and Will.I.Am, hook up on new release Hall Of Fame (Number 2), currently trailing Ne-Yo by less than 5%. The Script frontman Danny O’Donoghue will no doubt be eyeing the top spot, as if they can overtake Ne-Yo ahead of Sunday, this would give Dublin rockers their first UK Number 1. Their previous highest charting single was 2008’s The Man Who Can’t Be Moved, peaking at Number 2.

Joining Ne-Yo and The Script in the Top 3 on today’s Official Singles Chart Update is global superstar P!nk. P!nk has joined forces on new single Blow Me (One Last Kiss) with songwriter/producer Dan Wilson (Adele’s Someone Like You), Blow Me... (3) is taken from her forthcoming sixth studio album The Truth About Love, out next week.

Current and previous chart toppers Little Mix’s Wings and Sam And The Womp’s Bom Bom bump down to Number 4 and 5, respectively.

Elsewhere, today’s new entries are completed by Flo Rida’s I Cry (22) and The VaccinesTeenage Icon (35).

The week’s highest climber so far is Plan B’s Deepest Shame, the third single from Ill Manors, after the release of the album's title track and Lost My Way. Deepest Shame is on course for a Top 40 placing this weekend, currently up 77 places to Number 27.
