Beautiful People becomes the longest leading #1 single of all time, moving up two to the top spot for a fifth non-consecutive week.
This move to the top spot comes fresh off new chart methodology. The song is not very dominant and isn't very likely to have much longer at the top. It directly dethrones Ed Sheeran's own song Nothing On You, which slides down to #3. Beautiful People finally edges up to the #2 spot on the year end chart. It's only 22,000 points from taking over, which is possible with 2 or 3 more weeks in the Top 5.
Boom Bye Bye moves up to #2 on the chart this week, and up to #3 on the year end chart. It's a new peak on it's 15th week on the chart, which is very impressive. It's also very likely to be aiming high next week, challenging the current number one single for the top spot.
James Blake owns the chart once again, with a load of singles inside it. Can't Believe The Way We Flow moves down 3 to #5, but gains two new Top 10 arrivals with Tell Them and I'll Come Too pushing up to #10 and #9 respectively. Life Round Here also follows at #11. He charts a further four songs.
Metro Boomin, who has three songs on the chart, receives his third top 20 hit with Speak Out. Earning his first and second Top 40 hit is Lil Wayne, charting two songs in the latter part of the chart.
- James Blake charts 8 songs, the most of any artist.
