Tinie Tempah is on course to take this week’s Official Singles Chart top spot with his Jess Glynne collaboration Not Letting Go.
The track is currently almost 10,000 combined chart sales ahead of its nearest competitor Lost Frequencies, who enters the Top 40 at Number 2 with Are You With Me following its download release.
If its sales momentum continues, Not Letting Go will mark Tinie’s sixth UK Number 1 following Pass Out (2010), Written In The Stars FT Eric Turner (2010), R.I.P. with Rita Ora (2012), Tsunami (Jump) with DVBBS & Borgeous (2014) and Crazy Stupid Love with Cheryl (2014).
Jess Glynne has topped the chart three times to date, with Clean Bandit’s Rather Be (2014), Route 94’s My Love (2014) and Hold My Hand (2015).
In at Number 3 in today’s update is Flo Rida’s I Don’t Like It I Love It FT Robin Thicke and Verdine White, followed by former chart-topper Jason Derulo’s Want To Want Me (4) and Walk The Moon’s Shut Up & Dance (5).
