Major Lazer, MØ and DJ Snake's 'Lean On' is at Number 2
Jason Derulo has notched up his fourth consecutive week at the top of the Official UK Singles Chart with ‘Want To Want Me’.
The track’s 57,000 combined chart sales (including 2.11 million streams) over the last seven days keeps it at Number 1. ‘Want To Want Me’ is Derulo’s fourth UK chart topper after ‘In My Head’ (2010), ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’ (2011) and ‘Talk Dirty’ (2013).
Elsewhere, Major Lazer, MØ and DJ Snake’s ‘Lean On’ rises one place to Number 2. OMI’s ‘Cheerleader’ is at 3, while Deorro & Chris Brown’s ‘Five More Hours’ is this week’s highest new entry at Number 4. Walk The Moon’s ‘Shut Up & Dance’ rises three places to complete the top 5.
Derulo debuted the video for ‘Want To Want Me’ in March via the dating app Tinder. He explained the decision to US Weekly, describing Tinder as “the perfect place” to release the single: “Social media and dating together is the new wave. It is the source of one half of the relationships in 2015, and I’m all about being part of the new wave.
“A lot of my friends and family members are on Tinder… [It’s] the perfect place for my new single, ‘Want to Want Me’. On Tinder, you swipe left or right and want the person you like to want you, too. It is a cool and unique way to deliver my new video to the world.”
