Clean Bandit score their longest-running Number 1 single with Rockabye

Clean Bandit score a personal best this week as Rockabye becomes the band’s longest-running Number 1 single.

The Sean Paul and Anne-Marie featured track today notches up a fifth week at the top of the Official Singles Chart, surpassing the four weeks their former chart-topper Rather Be logged at the summit in 2014.

Combined chart sales of over 70,000 kept Rockabye at Number 1, and also claims the most downloaded (30,000) and most streamed (4.04 million) song of the week.

Neiked’s Sexual reaches a new peak of Number 5 today in its 15th week on chart, while Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You vaults 23 places to Number 6, marking the first time the track has appeared in the Top 10 for nine years.

Rag’n’Bone Man’s Human is another new Top 10 entry this week, up three places to Number 8 following his win of the BRITs Critics’ Choice prize. The track was also the second most downloaded single of the week.

Zara Larsson’s I Would Like rockets from Number 54 to Number 21 following her performance on last weekend’s X Factor semi-final, while John Legend’s Love Me Now hops three places higher to a new peak of Number 30. Charli XCX scores her sixth Top 40 hit with After The Afterparty, up seven to 34.

A further four Christmas songs either climb or re-enter the Top 40 this week. They are: The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl’s Fairytale of New York (16); Last Christmas by Wham (19); Shakin’ Stevens’ Merry Christmas Everyone (28); and I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard (37).

Finally, Michael Buble’s It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas enters the Official Singles Chart Top 40 for the very first time, five years after the song was released, landing at Number 39 today.
