Stormzy's Big For Your Boots is this week's Official Trending Chart Number 1

Plus listen to the UK's Top 20 new songs making a big impact this week, including Imagine Dragons and Sia.

It looks like Stormzy will be filling his boots with success thanks to the impressive first-week showing for his new single.

Real name Michael Omari, the British grime MC is this week's Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart with Big For Your Boots, the lead single from his highly-anticipated debut studio album Gang Signs & Prayer.

Stormzy's impressive start on the Official Singles Chart Update (published yesterday) saw the Londoner open at Number 8 and could see him earn his second Top 10 single to date (More at the bottom of the page on how the chart is compiled).

Also riding high on the Top 20 is Dua Lipa, who has two entries on the countdown for the second week in a row. This week, the British rising star is represented by her solo hit Be The One, and Scared To Be Lonely, her collaboration with Dutch DJ and producer Martin Garrix.

About the Official Trending Chart

The Official Trending Chart is a brand new chart launched for 2016 to highlight the hottest new tracks beginning to make an impact in the UK every week.

The Top 20 rundown, published on OfficialCharts.com every Tuesday, based on the first four days’ sales of each chart week, is designed to highlight emerging hits as they begin to scale the Official Charts and build buzz.

The Official Trending Chart ranks titles which are showing week-on-week chart growth, and is the only “new music” chart to reflect audio track sales and streams comprehensively across all services.

Devised by the Official Charts Company in close consultation with labels, retailers and media, the chart since launch has highlighted emerging hits such as Number 1 single One Dance by Drake, and The Chainsmokers & Halsey's chart topper Closer.

The chart is designed to help highlight hit singles in their early stages of their growth, in the light of the shift in release strategies of record labels over the past six months. Under “On Air On Sale”, labels have started to release new music for consumers to buy or stream on the same day as those tracks are released to media (including radio stations and TV).
