The UK is enjoying a heatwave this week (big time, right?) and DJ Khaled has just the song for it – his new collaboration with Rihanna and Bryson Tiller called Wild Thoughts.

The track lands straight in at the top of this week’s Official Trending Chart – the Top 20 rundown of songs making waves in the UK this week, based on movement up the Official Singles Chart.

Released last Friday (June 16) Wild Thoughts is set to make a big splash on this week’s Official Singles Chart, at  Number 3 in the latest available sales flash.

Wild Thoughts is the latest track from Khaled’s upcoming album Grateful, out on June 23. The album includes the Number 1 single The One (with Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne), plus Shining ft. Beyonce and Jay and To The Max with Drake. Other guests on the record include Nicki Minaj, Calvin Harris and PARTYNEXTDOOR. 

Also impacting on this week’s trending Top 20 are Little Mix, whose latest single Power ft. Stormzy is on course to enter the Top 10  on this week’s Official Singles Chart. If they manage it, it’ll be their 11th Top 10. Look back at Little Mix’s complete chart history here.

Elsewhere, Calvin Harris’ latest single Feels, which features Pharrell, Katy Perry and Big Sean, impacts the Official Trending Chart, as does Selena Gomez’s Bad Liar, which is on course to make a 31-place leap back into the Top 40 this Friday (June 23).

Other brand new singles already proving popular are Jax Jones’ new collaboration with Demi Lovato, Instruction, Neiked’s Call Me – the follow up to their Top 5 debut Sexual – and George Ezra, who made his return last Friday with Don’t Matter Now.

About the Official Trending Chart

The Official Trending Chart was launched in 2016 to highlight the hottest new tracks beginning to make an impact in the UK every week.

The Top 20 rundown, published on OfficialCharts.com every Tuesday, based on the first four days’ sales of each chart week, is designed to highlight emerging hits as they begin to scale the Official Charts and build buzz.

The Official Trending Chart ranks titles which are showing week-on-week chart growth, and is the only “new music” chart to reflect audio track sales and streams comprehensively across all services.

Devised by the Official Charts Company in close consultation with labels, retailers and media, the chart since launch has highlighted emerging hits such as Number 1 single One Dance by Drake, and The Chainsmokers & Halsey’s chart topper Closer.

The chart is designed to help highlight hit singles in their early stages of their growth, in the light of the shift in release strategies of record labels over the past six months. Under “On Air On Sale”, labels have started to release new music for consumers to buy or stream on the same day as those tracks are released to media (including radio stations and TV).
