Congratulations to Camila Cabello who has scored her very first UK solo Number 1 single.

Havana featuring Young Thug eventually rises to the top following three consecutive weeks held up in the Number 2 spot. Havana ended up just shy of 4,000 combined chart sales ahead of Post Malone’s Rockstar, ending its four-week residency at Number 1.

Camila told OfficialCharts.com: “I am so excited to be Number 1 in the UK! I can’t believe it! Thank you to my amazing fans for always supporting me – WE DID IT! I am so grateful.” 

Camila’s previous career peak was Number 2 – Work From Home by Fifth Harmony claimed runner-up status in April 2016. Havana recently became the Cuban-born star’s fourth UK Top 40 hit and her first Top 10 entry as a soloist.

Post Malone and 21 Savage’s Rockstar slips a slot to Number 2 this week on the Official Singles Chart, ahead of a non-mover in Marshmello and Khalid’s Silence (3). Avicii and Rita Ora’s Lonely Together holds firm at Number 4, ahead of Zayn & Sia’s Dusk Till Dawn, which returns to its previous peak position of Number 5. 

Charlie Puth’s How Long (9) rises eight to become his fourth UK Top 10 single following his performance on BBC One’s Sounds Like Friday Night, while Rita Ora’s Anywhere lifts nine to Number 11. 

Wolves by Selena Gomez & Marshmello claims this week’s highest new entry at Number 16, two slots ahead of CamelPhat and Elderbrook’s Cola, which enters the Top 20 for the first time at Number 18. Big Shaq’s Man’s Not Hot also cracks the Top 20 for the first time, up six to Number 20.

Liam Payne’s Bedroom Floor leaps six positions to Number 22 after his debut live performance of the track on The X Factor, plus there’s a 10 place ascent for MK’s 17 to Number 26. One placing behind is Let You Down by rising American rapper NF, up 13 to Number 27.

Clean Bandit’s UK tour is in full swing, and new single I Miss You featuring Julia Michaels debuts at Number 28 this week. Michael Jackson’s Thriller returns to the Top 40 for the first time since June 2009 following his death. Halloween downloads and streams cause the horrifying hit to re-enter at Number 34.

Finally, Taylor Swift’s Ready For It is back in the Top 40 at Number 38 following the release of the headline-grabbing official video, and Stormzy nets his 10th UK Top 40 hit with Blinded By Your Grace ft. MNEK (40).

We are so pleased to announce the 2017 winner of the BRITs Critics’ Choice and British Breakthrough awards Rag’n’Bone Man will be performing live at this year’s award ceremony on 21 February. He will join an already exceptional line-up which so far includes Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Sam Smith and Stormzy.

In the last year, Rag’n’Bone Man has broken the record for fastest-selling UK male debut of the decade with his 3x Platinum No. 1 album  ‘Human’ which has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide.

Rag’n’Bone Man said: “Jheez! 2017 has flown by super quick. Its pretty mental to think that I bagged two awards at The BRITs last year and now I’m heading back to perform. I’m looking forward to being a part of the celebration with everyone. It’s going to be a good one for sure!”

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Rory epitomises how dreams can come true. He has had the most amazing 12 months and I’m so delighted to see him back where it all started.”

The 38th BRIT Awards will be hosted by Jack Whitehall at The O2, London and broadcast live on ITV. We can’t wait for Rag’n’Bone Man to bring his talent to the stage.

The nominations for the 2018 BRIT Awards will be revealed at ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ on Saturday 13 January. The show broadcast live on ITV will be hosted by Emma Willis and includes live performances from Clean Bandit, J Hus, Jorja Smith, Liam Payne and Paloma Faith.

FOO FIGHTERS CONFIRMED FOR BRIT AWARDS 2018 25

We are so delighted to announce that four-time BRIT winners and one of the world’s most successful bands Foo Fighters will perform on The BRITs stage for the first time on 21 February.

The international superstars will deliver one of their legendary live performances alongside performances from Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Stormzy and Dua Lipa.

Foo Fighters have sold more than 25 million records and sold out countless world tours. The band’s acclaimed ninth studio album ‘Concrete and Gold’ was their fourth to hit No.1 in the UK charts on release in September, topping the charts in more than a dozen countries.

BRITs Chairman & CEO and Chairman of Sony Music UK & Ireland Jason Iley said: “Anyone who was lucky enough to witness one of their shows on the recent sold out UK tour, or their set at Glastonbury – which was undoubtedly one of the best performances the festival has ever seen and a night that will be talked about forever – will know why Foo Fighters are the biggest and most exciting rock band in the world. Quite remarkably they have never performed at The BRITs, so I am over the moon to confirm a massive BRITs exclusive to have them grace our stage.”

With four BRIT Awards under their belt winning International Album in 2008 and International Group in 2008, 2012 and 2015 we can’t wait for Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee to bring the incredible Foo Fighters energy to The BRITs stage.
