Congratulations to Sam Smith who has gone straight in at Number 1 with Too Good at Goodbyes.
Released last Friday, the lead single from Sam's as-yet-untitled second album rockets to the top with 4.4 million streams and 33,000 downloads sold. The song is the Londoner's sixth UK Number 1 following La La La (with Naughty Boy), Money On My Mind, Stay With Me, Lay Me Down (with John Legend) and Writing's On The Wall.

With six Number 1s now under his belt, Sam joins the likes of Sir Rod Stewart, Queen, Britney Spears and Justin Bieber, who each have six chart toppers. When it comes to British males, only six men have had more songs hit the top spot, they are Cliff Richard, Calvin Harris, George Michael, Elton John, Tinie Tempah and Robbie Williams.
Continuing with the theme of sixes, Too Good at Goodbyes is the sixth song to debut straight in at Number 1 in 2017, following Ed Sheeran's Shape Of You, Harry Styles' Sign of The Times, DJ Khaled's I'm The One, Artists for Grenfell's Bridge Over Troubled Water and Taylor Swift's Look What You Made Me Do.
Meanwhile, Dua Lipa's New Rules holds firm at Number 2, Taylor Swift's Look What You Made Me Do ends its two-week residency at Number 1 (3), and P!nk drops a slot with What About Us at Number 4.
Rounding out this week’s Top 5is Zayn with his new single Dusk Till Dawn (5). Featuring Sia, the song becomes Zayn's third UK Top 5 as a soloist, and Sia's fourth.
