Roses by Saint Jhn is Number 1 on the UK's Official Trending Chart

The track - first released in 2016 - is making big waves in the UK right now.

Saint Jhn's latest track Roses is blooming at the moment, landing at Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart.

The track from the Guyanese-American rapper and producer (real name Carlos St. John) - first released in 2016 - has seen a huge leap up the Official Singles Chart over the last five weeks, last week zooming 19 places to Number 21. This week it could climb into the Top 10, currently at Number 8 in the latest midweeks.

But if Roses was originally released in 2016 – why is it just hitting the charts now?

In September 2019, 19-year-old Kazakh producer Imanbek released a remix of the tune through Russian record label Effective Records, which initially gained traction in Eastern Europe but is now sweeping west in a big way.

Justin Bieber’s latest release Intentions ft. Quavo, from his upcoming album Changes, is making waves in its first week, set for a Top 40 debut this week, while Joel Corry's new single Lonely continues to grow this week, potentially earning him a second Top 20 hit this Friday (Feb. 14).

Elsewhere, Pussycat Dolls feature on this week's trending chart with their possible return to the Official Charts for the first time in almost a decade with comeback single React. The US girl group last appeared on the charts in 2009 with Top 20 hit Hush Hush; Hush Hush.

Finally, four more brand new tracks - Destined For Greatness by YouTuber siblings Tobi & Manny, ft. Janelle, London by UK rappers M24 & Tion Wayne, Anne Marie’s Birthday and Know Your Worth by Khalid & Disclosure - are all making a big impact in the UK this week.
