The Official Top 40 biggest songs of 2019 so far

Hits by Lewis Capaldi, Lil Nas X and Mabel are among what you've been streaming and downloading most.

Lewis Capaldi’s breakout year shows no signs of slowing yet as Someone You Loved claims the UK’s Official biggest song of 2019 so far.

Released in November 2018, the track first charted inside the Top 40 in April 2019 and went on to spend seven weeks at Number 1. The ballad has notched up 1.34 million combined sales this year, including 154.4 million streams, more than any other song on audio and video platforms.

A fellow Scotsman finishes in the year-to-date chart’s runner-up slot. Released in January, Calvin Harris’ single Giant featuring Rag’n’Bone Man is the year’s second biggest song so far on 970,000 combined sales. It currently stands as 2019’s most downloaded song with 184,000 paid-for sales.

Ava Max’s 2018 Number 1 Sweet But Psycho is third, with Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road currently 2019’s biggest debut single at Number 4. The country-rap song spent 10 consecutive weeks in the Top 2, two of which were at Number 1.

Rounding out the Top 5 is Ariana Grande’s record-breaking 7 Rings. The song made Official Charts history in January when it recorded the biggest week of streams of all-time, notching up 16 million plays in its first seven days of release.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, Mabel’s Don’t Call Me Up is the biggest track by a British female at Number 6, while Billie Eilish’s Number 2 hit Bad Guy places at Number 9.
