The Chainsmokers' surprise collaboration with Coldplay soars to the top of this week's Official Trending Chart.
Something Just Like This was released last Wednesday (February 22) following its unveiling at last week's BRIT Awards. After entering last week's Official Singles Chart at Number 30 after less than 48 hours on sale, the song has risen twenty eight positions to Number 2 on the latest chart update.
The Chainsmokers previously hit Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart with Closer, which featured Halsey. That song went on to also reach the top spot on the Official Singles Chart; will they be able to replicate the success with their latest offering?
Calvin Harris also makes a massive impact on this week's trending Top 20 with Slide, his new collaboration with Frank Ocean and Migos, which is currently sitting just outside the Top 10 on the latest Top 40 sales flash.
Other brand new tracks released last Friday (Feb 24) that are making an impact this week include Jason Derulo's Swalla and Kato, Sigala and Hailee Steinfeld's Show You Love and John Mayer's Still Feel Like Your Man.
Stormzy and Future each have two entries on the Official Trending Chart following the release of their respective albums Gang Signs and Prayer and HNDRXX this week.
Finally, the title track of a new David Bowie EP called No Plan impacts this week's trending Top 20. The mini collection - made of Bowie's final recordings for new musical Lazarus - was released this week to celebrate what would have been the music icon's 70th birthday.

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).
