Chart Update: 9th Jan 2012

In it’s 8th week of being in the charts, Flo Rida's “Good Feeling” climbs back to the top spot, bumping Coldplay's “Paradise” down from number 1 to number 2. 

New entries in this week’s chart come from Taio Cruz with “Troublemaker”, Skepta with “Hold On”, and BBC Sound Of 2012 poll winner Michael Kiwanuka with “Home Again”.

Adele remains firmly in the top 40 with “Set Fire To The Rain” sitting at number 32 and “Someone Like You” at number 28, both after 50 weeks in the chart.


Chart Update: 19th Dec 2012

Following on the usual X Factor tradition, this week’s Top 40 Singles Chart sees Little Mix head straight to the number 1 spot with their winner’s single “Cannonball”. Although not a surprise that they are this week’s number 1, the question now is will they remain at the top spot and be Christmas Number 1 this Sunday.

Other new entries in this week’s Top 40 include Leona Lewis' cover of Nine Inch Nail's “Hurt” at number 8 taken from her new covers EP, and the original version of “Cannonball” from Damien Rice at number 19.

Coldplay's “Paradise” moves back up from number 8 to take second place in this week's chart, with last week's number 1 Olly Murs' “Dance With Me Tonight” now sitting at number 3.
