Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk breaks all-time streaming record

For the first time this year, it’s not just what the British public have been buying and downloading that counts towards the final tally, audio streams from services such as Spotify, Deezer and O2Tracks were also counted.

Breaking the all-time record for the most streamed track in a single week, Mark Ronson’s 'Uptown Funk' FT Bruno Mars (No.2 today) has been listened to nearly 2.34 million times this week. The record was previously held by Ed Sheeran’s 'Thinking Out Loud' which notched up over 1.72 million streams in a single week in November.

Six other tracks have been streamed over one million times this week, including a personal best for Ed Sheeran’s 'Thinking Out Loud' (1.8m), plus Hozier’s 'Take Me To Church' (1.1m), Mariah Carey’s 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' (1.1m), Olly Murs’ 'Wrapped Up' FT Travie McCoy (1.1m), Calvin Harris’ 'Outside' FT Ellie Goulding (1m) and One Direction’s 'Steal My Girl' (1m).

Down one place to three today is Ed Sheeran’s 'Thinking Out Loud', followed by new entry Olly Murs’ 'Up' FT Demi Lovato (No.4).

Rounding out the Top 5 today is surprise last minute Christmas No.1 contender, The Wealdstone Raider with Got No Fans (No.5). The track has rocked the chart this week, climbing an impressive 32 places since entering the Top 200 for the first time on Wednesday.
