After just two weeks at the top, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s hit single “Shallow” has slipped from the No. 1 position, giving way to a brand new release that debuts as high as a tune can climb.
Ariana Grande’s just-released track “Thank U, Next” blasts onto the ranking at No. 1, giving the singer her third chart-topper in the country and pushing the powerful pairing to the runner-up slot. Behind them, two of the most popular women in the music industry bolt into the uppermost region with current singles, adding another success to their already-impressive discographies.
Behind “Thank U, Next” and “Shallow” comes Little Mix and Nicki Minaj’s “Woman Like Me,” which previews the vocals group’s upcoming fifth record. The single climbed all the way to No. 2 last frame, but it’s been pushed back by Grande’s incoming smash. The same has happened to Calvin Harris and Sam Smith’s “Promises,” which is now down to No. 4. While it too was forced to take a step down because of the new ruler, the popular track did once dominate the listing for several turns.
Rita Ora’s “Let You Love Me” returns to its No. 5 peak, and it is followed closely by former one-week No. 1 “Funky Friday” by Dave and Fredo.
The second new entrant inside the U.K.’s top 10 comes from pop singer and British favorite Jess Glynne. The musician’s new single “Thursday,” which is featured on her recently-released sophomore record Always in Between, rises to No. 7, becoming her twelfth top 10 hit in the country and her third from the new album.
Down to No. 8 is “ZEZE” by rappers Kodak Black, Travis Scott and Offset.
The third and final new single that appears inside the highest tier on the tally for the first time comes from American alt-pop singer Halsey. Her tune “Without Me” bolts to No. 9, granting the musician her third top 10 and her first entirely on her own.
Rounding out the top 10 is Post Malone and Swae Lee’s “Sunflower,” which recently debuted inside the area, then stepped outside, and which has now returned for another spin.
