Young T & Bugsey's Strike A Pose takes the Number 1 spot on this week's Official Trending Chart as the pair's breakthrough track edges towards the UK singles chart Top 10.
The song by the Nottingham duo has been one of the songs of summer 2019, first appearing on the Official Singles Chart in June at Number 30 and steadily climbing the Top 40 ever since. After reaching Number 12 last week, the track is edging closer to the Top 10 on this Friday's Official Singles Chart (Sept 6), currently at Number 11.
Strike A Pose also features rising star Aitch, a British rapper hailing from Manchester who is currently enjoying his first Top 10 hit with Taste (Make It Shake).
"A Nottingham & Manny link up was always bound to be wavey, and Strike A Pose' is exactly that!" Young T and Bugsey said of the track. "A wavey banger for all the clubs this Summer. Our charismatic back to back verse filled with cheeky one-liners, the potent northern flow on Aitch’s verse and a catchy chorus that the girls can sing to - what more could you want!?"
Meanwhile, US rapper Post Malone makes a big impression the latest Official Trending Chart; his new track Circles is set to be this week's highest new entry on the singles chart, currently at Number 12. Post's new album, Hollywood's Bleeding, is out this Friday (Sept 6). A song dedicated to the star by producer Sam Feldt ft. Rani also appears in the trending Top 20.
Elsewhere, Regard is making waves with Ride It. The Kosovo-born DJ's chill house track is enjoying viral success thanks to social media video app Tik Tok - the same platform that helped Lil Nas X score a global hit with Old Town Road.
Finally, Lana Del Rey makes two entries with songs from her newly released album Norman F**king Rockwell. While the record is heading for Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart, two of its songs - the title track and its trailer single Doin' Time - are proving the most popular from the record.
