Beyoncé looks to score a straight month at Number 1 with TEXAS HOLD ‘EM this week, potentially becoming her longest-running chart-topper in the UK to date. 

Following the release of her seventh studio album, Ariana Grande expects to see three eternal sunshine tracks inside the Top 20: yes, and? looks to lift seven (4), while we can’t be friends (wait for your love) (6) and bye (11) could make their first chart appearances. 

Ella Henderson and Rudimental’s ALIBI hopes to continue its upward trajectory, tracking to lift one to a brand-new peak (9). 

As it becomes available on limited 7” single, Billie Eilish’s What Was I Made For? could vault 85 spots back into the Top 20 (14). 

And, finally, Bryson Tiller’s viral hit Whatever She Wants eyes a new best this week, set to jump three (17).

Right. No funny business. Let's get this over with.

20: Michael Marcagi - Scared To Start (down 4)

Now if you could keep falling down the chart, that would be so neato of you. Agree?

19: RAYE ft. 070 Shake - Escapism. (down 6)

Also shooting south is the BRIT Award superstar of the moment, clearly in no mood to hang about in our lives any longer. Just don't fade away, RAYE, and we'll say yay.

18: Kygo & Ava Max - Whatever (down 3)


17: Bryson Tiller - Whatever She Wants (up 3)

Sorry, who likes this song again? I'm confused.

16: Natasha Bedingfield - Unwritten (down 4)

I give up man.

15: Calvin Harris & Rag'n'Bone Man - Lovers In A Past Life (down 1)

So THAT'S what happens when radio shoves a song so far down your throat that you have no choice but to stop streaming it. I get it now.

14: Billie Eilish - What Was I Made For? (up EIGHTY-FIVE)

Why can't record labels just shut up for five minutes? I get that the Oscars are happening and all, but I barely liked this song when it first came out, and now I want to bury it in the same box as Baby Shark and Heat Waves. Either way, f*** Atlantic. 🤐

13: YG Marley - Praise Jah In The Moonlight (down 6)

Oh, ok, down he goes.

12: Taylor Swift - Cruel Summer (down 3)

Will this be the day that this song finally creeps out of the Top 10? Because I'll be amazed if it does, looking at what's above it.

11: Ariana Grande - bye (NEW)

Anyways, this one kicks off the Eternal Sunshine charade, despite it reeking of early 90s disco, right down to it's Rozalla-Urban Cookie Collective-Alex Party core. Maybe that's why I have mixed feelings for her music.

10: Dua Lipa - Training Season (down 2)

And now that the BRITs have subsided, nothing is gonna stop this song from tipping into oblivion by the time her album comes out. Not even another dreaded PHYSICAL RELEASE.

9: Ella Henderson ft. Rudimental - Alibi (up 1)

I don't really care, to be honest with you all. I'm too busy sticking pipebombs up my gut to notice.

8: Kanye West/Ty Dolla $ign - CARNIVAL (down 3)

The year is 2041. Despite a near 800 week stay in the Top 10, CARNIVAL still hasn't been played by Radio 1. Guys, I thought you guys were THE hip radio station. Replacing Jordan North with a donny from Made In Chelsea isn't helping matters either.

7: Noah Kahan - Stick Season (down 1)

Can this man leave yet? I should be glad he's still on ACR.

6: Ariana Grande - we can't be friends (wait for your love) (NEW)

Entry number 2 here from her new LP, and again, the faint smell of Snap! is hard to distinguish amongst the usual keyboard mush that makes up modern pop music. A video for this exists, though, so don't be surprised if it's still Top 10 by April.

5: Djo - End Of Beginning (down 1)

Will this guy be a 1-hit wonder? Asking for a friend.

4: Ariana Grande - yes, and? (up 7)

Oh boy. That's not gone down too well in the Grande campus. Then again, people my age are too busy harassing football referees for being free-thinking extravagants, if the Liverpool vs City game today was anything to go by.

3: Teddy Swims - Lose Control (non-mover)

Don't care.

2: Benson Boone - Beautiful Things (non-mover)

Didn't ask.

1: Beyoncé - TEXAS HOLD 'EM (non-mover)

But most importantly, thank goodness Beyoncé's still at the top. If this was the biggest selling song of 2024, I wouldn't have any complaints. March 29th can't come soon enough.

And that's that for now. Tune in tomorrow for more of my predicaments.

(P.S. I get the weird feeling that last week's No.41 is the new Heat Waves. Not that I have anything against Evergreen by Richy Mitch & The Coalminers, but people could've streamed ANYTHING else instead. Where's Feeder when you need them?)




Good to see 'What Was I Made For?' set to return to the Top 20 due to the physical sales push. 

Very well-timed with the Oscars tonight! 😊
