Rudimental’s latest single These Days takes the top spot on this week’s Official Singles Chart.
After a mammoth seven consecutive weeks at Number 2 – a record jointly held with Maroon 5’s Moves Like Jagger - the group’s latest track These Days ft. Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen climbs a place to become their third Number 1.
Rudimental told OfficialCharts.com: "It feels amazing! The fact the fans are still sticking by us and keeping our song in the charts for as long as they have is amazing. A massive thank you to all the fans who are supporting us out there.”
The Hackney-based quartet previously topped the Official Chart in 2012 with Feel The Love ft. John Newman and in 2013 with Waiting All Night ft. Ella Eyre. Check out Rudimental’s complete Official Chart history here.
