David Zowie has become the first artist to earn a Number One in the Official UK Singles Chart in its first brand new Friday slot.
‘House Every Weekend’ by the Kent based DJ and producer is Number One in today’s (July 10) Official Chart, holding off competition from Years & Years as well as last week’s Number One from Lost Frequencies.
The song leaped following its full download release. ‘House Every Weekend’ entered the Top 75 last week on streams alone and is Zowie’s first Number One hit. Years & Years’ new single ‘Shine’ landed at Number Two. The UK trio’s debut album ‘Communion’ is released today on the first Global Release Day.
The traditional Sunday slot for the Official Chart Show ended last week (July 5) with this afternoon seeing Greg James host the show in its new 4pm Fridays timeslot on BBC Radio 1.
Meanwhile, the first Number One album of the new era belongs to Ed Sheeran
Sheeran’s album ‘x’ is back at Number One today ahead of his upcoming Wembley Stadium gigs this weekend. Sheeran will play three nights at the stadium between Friday-Sunday.
Sheeran recorded the following video after being told the news of his historic Number One:
