Sam Ryder's SPACE MAN is the Number 1 Trending Song in the UK

Plus new entries from Kendrick Lamar, Tion Wayne & La Roux and My Chemical Romance.

Sam Ryder's SPACE MAN becomes the Number 1 Trending Song in the country today, following its record-breaking success at Eurovision. 

SPACE MAN finished in second place overall in the competition - the UK's best Eurovision placing since 1998 and with 466 points gained its higher ever score too.

And this success has transplanted onto the Official Charts too - SPACE MAN tops the Trending Chart, ahead of its exciting journey up the Official Singles Chart, where it could end up challenging Harry Styles for Number 1.

In other Eurovision-related news, Maneskin's new Max Martin-produced tune Supermodel enters the Official Trending Chart for the first time today, as does Subwoolfer's Give That Wolf A Banana, the Norwegian entry for 2022.

There are a whole host of new entries this week; including two (Die Hard and N95) from Kendrick Lamar following the release of his new album Mr Morale & The Big Steppers and Tion Wayne's IFTK, which samples La Roux's 00s dance classic In For The Kill, and who is credited as a featured artist. 

My Chemical Romance also returned in a big surprise last week with new single The Foundations of Decay - their first track in eight years - while there are further new entries from Post Malone and Roddy Ricch with Cooped Up and D-Block Europe's latest offering Black Beatles.

And finally, two songs also get notable climbs up the chart; George Ezra's latest Green Green Grass, Diplo & Miguel's match made in heaven track Don't Forget My Love and Nathan Dawe's 21 Reasons featuring Ella Henderson. Read our chat with Nathan about his new track here.
