Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Rudimental however look set to remain at Nos 4 and 5 with Can’t Hold Us and Waiting All Night.
New entries in the chart come from 2 Chainz Ft Wiz Khalifa with We Own It (Fast & Furious) at No.6 – their UK Top 40 debut - plus Denmark’s 2013 Eurovision Song Contest winner Emmelie De Forest enters at No.10 with Only Teardrops.
