Olivia Rodrigo earns the UK's top trending song with Good 4 U

Plus new releases from J Cole, Bella Poarch and Jorja Smith are making waves this week.

Olivia Rodrigo’s new single Good 4 U flies straight to Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart, as it speeds towards a Top 10 debut.

Olivia’s fiery third single and the latest release from her upcoming album Sour - set for release this Friday (21 May) - the pop-rock anthem has already racked up over a million UK streams in its first three days.

It looks as though 2021 is going to be Olivia's year, with two Top 20 singles already under her belt including Driver's License which spent nine consecutive weeks at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart.
