Calvin Harris has claimed this week’s UK number one with his huge collaboration ‘Feels’, which also features Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Big Sean. Eight weeks after its release, the track finally knocked ‘Despacito’ by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber off the top spot.
In doing so, Calvin has achieved his eighth UK number one. He joins The Rolling Stones, Oasis and Eminem, who have all eight number ones each. As it stands, Calvin has the second most number ones of any British male soloist, with only Cliff Richard’s record of 14 standing in his way. The DJ and producer’s previous number ones are ‘Dance Wiv Me’ (with Dizzee Rascal), ‘I’m Not Alone’, ‘We Found Love (with Rihanna), ‘Sweet Nothing’, ‘Under Control’, ‘Summer’, and ‘Blame’.
‘Feels’ is Katy’s fifth UK number one and Pharrell’s fourth, whilst Big Sean will be celebrating his first ever UK number one.
With ‘Feels’ finally making its way to the top, we also saw a little bit of a shake up in the top 10. Former number one ‘Despacito’ has slipped to fourth place, making way for French Montana and Swae Lee’s ‘Unforgettable’ and DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller’s ‘Wild Thoughts’ at number two and three respectively. Dua Lipa rounds off this week’s top five with her highest ever charting single, ‘New Rules’.
Rudimental and James Arthur’s collaboration, ‘Sun Comes Up’, climbs two places to number six, whilst Jonas Blue and William Singe’s ‘Mama’ exits the top five, slipping to seven. Sigala and Ella Eyre’s ‘Came Here For Love’ and Little Mix’s ‘Power’ are at eight and nine, whilst Enrique Iglesias, Sean Paul and Matt Terry complete the top ten with ‘Subeme La Radio’.
