Taylor Swift's 'ME!' was this week's highest New Entry on The Official Big Top 40.

Billie Eilish has clinched a second week at Number 1 with 'bad guy', beating Taylor Swift to the top spot.

Taylor released her new single 'ME!' featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco on Friday and its reached Number 2 on this week's chart - just two days on from its release.

Meduza's 'Piece of Your Heart', Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road' and Lewis Capaldi's 'Someone You Loved' complete the Top 5.

Ellie Goulding joined Will Manning in the studio as her track 'Sixteen' climbed into the Top 10 at Number 7.

There were seven New Entries this week, with Pink, Lil Dicky and next week's guest Stormzy among the big names.

Plus, a rather unusual New Entry from wildlife charity The RSPB, with 'Let Nature Sing' - a song that's entirely composed of birdsong - reaching Number 8 on the UK's biggest chart show.

The track aims to raise awareness of the loss of over 40 million birds from the UK in the last fifty years.
