Clean Bandit hold on to Number 1, with strong debuts from One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and X Factor winner Matt Terry
In the face of some stiff competition, Clean Bandit hold on to the Number 1 spot with Rockabye.
The band’s second chart-topper, featuring Sean Paul and Anne-Marie, logs a sixth consecutive week at Number 1, scoring a comfortable lead of over 15,000 combined sales ahead of its nearest rival.
The race for Christmas Number 1 kicks off today, of course – can Clean Bandit hang on to claim the festive chart-topper next Friday the 23rd?
Challenging them at Number 2 is this week’s highest new entry, Just Hold On from One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, in collaboration with Steve Aoki. The pair performed the track for the first time in Saturday’s X Factor final, and the show’s eventual winner Matt Terry is right behind them at 3 with his winner’s single, the Ed Sheeran-penned When Christmas Comes Around, based on just five days’ sales and streams.
