Calvin Harris and Sam Smith have reclaimed the Number 1 on this week’s Official Singles Chart.
The pair’s track, Promises, chalks up a six stint at the top after being ousted last week by Dave’s Funky Friday ft. Fredo, which slips to Number 2, finishing just 1,026 combined sales behind. Funky Friday was the most streamed song of the week, with 7.13 million plays over the last seven days.
Promises is Calvin’s tenth UK Number 1 single and Sam’s seventh. Both rank among the acts with the most chart-toppers this decade.
