11 December 2014, 10:53
Bring Me The Horizon's rock anthem 'Drown' captured last weekend's No.1 after beating the likes of Taylor Swift AND Ed Sheeran. However Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson's rushed release of 'Uptown Funk' looks ready to cause a huge stir in this weekend's chart battle. Remember, YOU are in control of the chart!
Here are the contenders for this week's No.1 along with the reigning champion:
The CURRENT No.1: Bring Me The Horizon - 'Drown'
Oli Sykes and co caused a major upset last weekend when 'Drown' beat 'Thinking Out Loud' and 'Blank Space' to give Bring Me The Horizon their first ever Big Top 40 No.1. Whoever said rock music is dead clearly didn't take into account the power of the British rockers fan base who propelled them into pole position only hours after the release of the track.
