Irish singer-songwriter Hozier is celebrating another week at the summit of the UK Official Singles Chart with his infectious track “Too Sweet.” The song, which became Hozier’s first-ever Number 1 single in the UK last week, continues to dominate the charts, maintaining its reign at the top for a second consecutive week. This achievement marks a significant milestone for Andrew John Hozier-Byrne, establishing him as the first Irish solo artist to claim the Number 1 spot since Ronan Keating in 2002.

“Too Sweet” has shown impressive strength, boasting a 17% increase in chart performance compared to the previous week, with 72,000 chart units. Additionally, the track remains the most-streamed song in the UK for the week, accumulating an impressive 7.9 million streams.

Amidst Hozier’s continued success, the Official Charts Company also unveiled exciting developments across the chart landscape. British producer, singer, and songwriter Artemas achieves a new peak with his single “i like the way you kiss me,” which climbs two spots to Number 3, marking his first Top 3 hit.

Furthermore, American singer-songwriter Sabrina Carpenter is celebrating her debut entry into the UK Top 10, as her bubbly track “Espresso” makes an impressive debut at Number 6. This achievement marks a significant milestone in Carpenter’s career, as she secures her first-ever Top 10 single in the UK. She previously charted with “feather” at Number 19, “Skin” at Number 28, and “nonsense” at Number 32.

Country-pop sensation Dasha continues her ascent up the charts with “Austin”, reaching a new peak at Number 7. Dasha’s breakout hit continues to resonate with audiences, solidifying her presence in the UK music scene. We can so see her continue to climb.

Dua Lipa adds another hit to her impressive repertoire with “Illusion”, a new entry at Number 9. This marks Dua’s 16th Top 10 single in the UK, underscoring her consistent chart success leading up to her forthcoming third album, “Radical Optimism”. “Illusion” follows the success of her previous singles “Houdini” which charted at Number 2 and “Training Season” which charted at Number 4.

Meanwhile, Perrie Edwards, known for her work with the chart-topping group Little Mix, makes a successful solo debut with her single “Forget About Us”, landing at Number 10. Known mononymously as just Perrie, she spoke to the Official Charts Company to express her gratitude for the overwhelming support, stating, “Top 10, wow! I can’t thank you enough for the love and support everyone has shown Forget About Us. It truly means the world to me!”

The chart landscape also showcases rising talents and notable movements. US singer-songwriter Mark Ambor continues to climb with “Belong Together”, rising to Number 13. The Blessed Madonna and Clementine Douglas enter the UK Top 20 with “Happier”, ascending four spots to Number 17.

Additionally, Bakar’s 2019 single “Hell N Back” experiences a resurgence, jumping five places to Number 21, due to a new remix featuring Summer Walker. The track originally peaked at Number 20 in 2023, could he climb those extra two spots to beat his previous peak?

David Guetta & OneRepublic’s “I Don’t Wanna Wait” sees a significant climb, soaring twelve spots to Number 25, marking another week of success for the collaborative effort. The track seems to be doing well on the radio so we expect to see this climb more so.

In the realm of emerging artists, Lay Bankz and Chappell Roan secure their first UK Top 40 entries. Lay Bankz makes a massive leap, soaring a huge 61 places to Number 31 with “Tell Ur Girlfriend”, while LA-based alt-pop star Chappell Roan climbs 31 slots to Number 33 with “Good Luck, Babe!”

Natasha Bedingfield makes a triumphant return to the charts with a remix of her classic hit “These Words,” entering the UK Top 40 at Number 35. The original track topped the Official Singles Chart for two weeks in 2004, and Bedingfield’s resurgence reaffirms her enduring appeal. She’s still a force to be reckoned with when it comes to her previous hits, with “Unwritten” still charting well, this year, as it sticks within the UK Top 20. Can she make a third previous hit resurge into the UK Top 40, we’d love to see it.

Tyla’s infectious beats continue to resonate with audiences, solidifying her reputation as a rising star in the global music scene.

As Hozier continues to lead the charge at Number 1, the UK Official Singles Chart reflects a dynamic mix of established artists and rising stars, showcasing the diverse musical landscape that captivates audiences across the nation. Can he make it a third week at the top?
