After seven weeks at number two, ‘These Days’, the incredible collaboration from Rudimental, Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen, has finally reached the top of the UK singles chart.
The track marks Rudimental’s third number one single, following on from 2012’s ‘Feel The Love’ with John Newman, and 2013’s ‘Waiting All Night’ featuring Ella Eyre.
Speaking about the news, Rudimental told OfficialCharts.com, “It feels amazing! The fact the fans are still sticking by us and keeping our song in the charts for as long as they have is amazing. A massive thank you to all the fans who are supporting us out there.”
As the track has now reached number one, it also means that Jess Glynne has broken an exciting record. Having topped the charts six times, she is now the British female solo artist with the most UK number one singles. Her number one hits include ‘Rather Be’ with Clean Bandit, ‘My Love’ with Route 94, ‘Hold My Hand’, ‘Not Letting Go’ with Tinie Tempah, ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ and ‘These Days’.
Speaking about the news, Jess said: “I can’t believe I have reached six Number 1s at this point in my career,” Jess told OfficialCharts.com. “It still feels like I’m at the beginning of everything. I have to thank all the artists that have been involved in all the songs that have reached the Number 1 spot ’cause it’s not just been me.
“I also have thank my fans who have been with me from the beginning and all the new ones who have joined the journey. Now on to round two… Soon come.”
