Sigala earns debut No.1 single in the UK with his offering 'Easy Love'
Sigala has scored his first chart-topper this week with 'Easy Love'. The track - which samples Jackson 5’s 1970 Top 10 hit 'ABC' - has racked up a combined chart sales figure of over 82,000 this week, rocketing 71 places to secure the No.1 position following its full sales release.
Speaking to the Official Charts about this impressive feat, he said:
"This is so amazing. I had no idea this would ever be a Number 1 record. I wrote this song in my bedroom on a Sunday evening after a couple of beers. I had no idea it would go to the top of the charts!”
Elsewhere, Justin Bieber earns himself a place in the Official Charts history books today as 'What Do You Mean?' breaks the UK’s all-time streaming record, clocking up 3.87 million plays in the last seven days. The feat means Justin overtakes previous record-holder Wiz Khalifa’s 'See You Again' feat. Charlie Puth, which counted 3.72 million streams back in April.
Up two places to No.3 today is Jess Glynne’s 'Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself', followed by Calvin Harris & Disciples’ 'How Deep Is Your Love' at No.4 and The Weeknd’s 'Can’t Feel My Face' at 5.
Norwegian DJ and producer Kygo scores a third Top 40 with new Ella Henderson collaboration 'Here For You' (No.18), while former No.1s 'Uptown Funk' by Mark Ronson (36) and Jess Glynne’s 'Hold My Hand' (37) climb seven and ten places respectively to re-enter the Official Singles Chart Top 40.
