The Chainsmokers' new single Paris lands straight in at Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart.
The US duo's new single opened at Number 10 on Monday's (January 16) Official Singles Chart Update after just three days of sales and streams were combined, translating to a prime position on the Trending Chart, the Official Charts Company's measuring stick for future hits.
Paris marks the second time that Drew and Alex have hit Number 1 on the Official Trending Chart - their single Closer hit the Trending top spot back in August, a good omen for the duo considering Closer ended up at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart for four weeks. Could lightning strike twice?
Elsewhere, the combination of Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello continue to make waves with Bad Things, while The xx's On Hold also makes a splash following the release of their third album I See You, which is heading for Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart.
Other tracks making a significant impact this week include Now and Later by Californian rapper Sage The Gemini, Migos' Bad and Boujee, Alessia Cara's How Far I'll Go from the Moana soundtrack, MO and Kent Jones' Not In Love.

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).
