'Eastside' becomes Benny's twelfth UK Number 1 and his first time topping the charts as a solo artist. Benny's previous success has come as a songwriter and producer for the likes of Katy Perry and Maroon 5.

There were a total nine New Entries on this week's chart, including Jess Glynne's latest single 'All I Am' and Calvin Harris & Sam Smith's new track 'Promises' - which are both likely to have a big impact in the future.

Three of Aretha Franklin's best-loved songs also charted, following the legendary singer's death this week at the age of 76: '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman', 'Respect' and 'I Say a Little Prayer'.
