A huge chart landmark for Calvin Harris and Sam Smith as their latest collaboration 'Desire' is up 30 places and becomes this week's Number 1!
Calvin Harris and Sam Smith's techno tune has had a huge week in streaming, and becomes their second joint Number 1 following 2018's 'Promises'. This also becomes Calvin's second Number 1 of 2023, following 'Miracle' with Ellie Goulding. Congratulations Calvin and Sam!
Calvin spoke to Will about the biggest facts people don't know about him, and he revealed he wants people to stop comparing him to Shrek... check out the clip below!
Elsewhere in the Top 10, 'Barbie-mania' continues as Dua Lipa's 'Dance The Night' is down just 1 place to Number 2, and Billie Eilish, Lizzo, and Ryan Gosling's Barbie tracks move up places in this week's chart.
Continuing her US 'Eras' tour, Taylor Swift's 'Cruel Summer' hits a new peak of Number 7. The 2019 'Lover' track became a single 4 years after the album was released after a huge response on social media and streaming. Could this become Taylor's seventh Number 1?
