A second week at Number 1 for *icons* @eltonofficial and @britneyspears 🚀🌹Who loves 'Hold Me Closer'? pic.twitter.com/QnBremKt28— The Official Big Top 40 (@BigTop40) September 4, 2022
The highest new entry this week comes from Eliza Rose & Interplanetary Criminal with 'B.O.T.A. (Baddest Of Them All)', rising 12 places this week. The track has been a huge success across the festival scene this year, and Eliza was in the studio last week showing us some of the best moves to throw whilst listening to the song.
David Guetta and Bebe Rexha's 'I'm Good (Blue)' was a huge new entry last week, and has risen 2 places to a new peak of Number 2. Can David and Bebe make it to the top spot next week? If so, this would be David's second Number 1 since 2021's 'Heartbreak Anthem' with Little Mix, and Bebe's first ever #1 on the chart.
David has three songs in the chart this week, previous #2 'Crazy What Love Can Do' with Becky Hill & Ella Eyre, and new entry with Sigala and Sam Ryder 'Living Without You', new at #32. Sam joined us in the studio this week to discuss the track, alongside spinning the 'Wheel of Collaborations', teasing a potential Lizzo collab! Let's make it happen. Check out the clip from the interview below:
Other new entries include new Arctic Monkey's track 'There'd Better Be A Mirrorball', new at #13 and their highest charting track since 2013's 'Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?'. Tom Jones, DJ Khaled and Tom Odell also have new and re-entries at #27, #28 and #37 respectively.
