Noah Kahan takes Stick Season to full month at Number 1
It’s the season of Noah Kahan right now on the Official Singles Chart, with the Vermont singer-songwriter dominating at Number 1 for a full month and securing this week’s highest new entry, too.
Today, Stick Season stays strong for a fourth consecutive week at the summit, once again the most-streamed track in the country (8.7 million UK streams).
There’s more good news for Noah, as his brand-new Sam Fender duet Homesick debuts at Number 5. It becomes the second Top 10 hit in the UK for both artists in the process. Homesick’s success also pushes Sam’s biggest hit to date, Seventeen Going Under, back into the Top 40 (32). It originally peaked at Number 3 in 2022.
It’s tens across the board for Sophie Ellis-Bextor! Murder on the Dancefloor once again surges to a re-peak of Number 2, its original Official Singles Chart best from 2001, proving that Saltburn fever is far from over. Emerald Fennell’s gothic thriller is up for several nods at this year’s BAFTAs – including Best Supporting Actress for Rosamund Pike and Jacob Elordi for Best Supporting Actor.
Now is the time to release your inhibitions and feel the rain on your skin – Natasha Bedingfield’s Unwritten also rides the nostalgia wave, rising five to Number 13. The 2004 pop classic catches a second wind thanks to its inclusion in new rom com Anyone But You. Could it re-enter the Top 10 next week?

And, finally, Kygo and Ava Max team up for brand-new track Whatever, which crashes in at Number 38. Interpolating Shakira’s iconic breakthrough 2001 track Wherever, Whenever, Whatever becomes Kygo’s 10th and Ava’s sixth Top 40 entry (and first in nearly three years).
