Jesy Nelson's debut solo single has gone straight in at Number 2 on The Official Big Top 40.
Jesy Nelson's new song 'Boyz' has debuted at Number 2 on the UK's biggest chart show.
The track, featuring Nicki Minaj, was only released on Friday but charted as the highest New Entry of the week.
It samples P. Diddy's classic 'Bad Boy For Life' and Jesy even directed the big-budget music video herself.
'Boyz' couldn't quite do enough to knock Ed Sheeran from Number 1 though. 'Shivers' stuck at the top spot for the fourth week in a row, continuing Ed's impressive chart reign this year.

Jesy joined Dev Griffin, in for Will Manning, on The Official Big Top 40 as the news was revealed.
The singer discussed leaving Little Mix last year and teased that her first live performance of 'Boyz' is coming soon.
Can it climb to Number 1 next Sunday? Adele returns with new music this week so it's going to be a big chart!
