Justin Timberlake, "CAN'T STOP THE FEELING!" 

Justin Timberlake’s comeback song “Can't Stop The Feeling” (RCA) could land the pop singer his fifth U.K. No. 1.

Timberlake’s new release is at No. 1 on the Official Singles Chart Update, some 6,000 chart sales ahead of the No. 2 title, Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For” (Columbia).

Timberlake's infectious song, his contribution to the soundtrack for the DreamWorks film Trolls, should get a big bump from the U.S. star’s performance on the weekend at the Eurovision Song Contest and the subsequent release of the official “Feeling” video. 

Justin Timberlake Debuts at No. 1 on Hot 100 With 'Can't Stop the Feeling!' 

Timberlake has spent time at No. 1 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart with “Sexyback” (2006), “Give it to Me” (2007), “4 Minutes” (2008) and “Mirrors” (2013).  

Drake’s "One Dance" (Cash Money/Republic Records), the top place-getter last week, is down to No. 3 at the midway stage in the chart week, while the Stone Roses' surprise release, "All For One" (EMI), is at No. 4. "All for One" is the legendary Manchester band’s first new material in two decades, and should it remain in the top 10, it’ll be the band’s best performing single since “Love Spreads” reached No. 2 back in 1994. The Stone Roses last appeared in the Official Singles Chart Top 40 in 1999 when a remix of "Fools Gold" peaked at No. 25. The midweek top 5 is rounded out by Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” (Monkey Puzzle/RCA).

Meanwhile, Beyoncé's Lemonade (Columbia/Parkwood Entertainment) hasn’t lost any fizz as the superstar performer’s sixth studio set shapes for a second non-consecutive week at No. 1. Lemonade is ahead of Drake’s second-placed Views (Island) on the Official Singles Chart Update, and Kygo’s new release Cloud Nine (Epic), which is at No. 3. Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool (XL Recordings) is at No. 4 and Meghan Trainor’s sophomore album Thank You (RCA) completes the top 5. Thank You is the follow-up to Trainor’s chart-topping 2015 set Title.

The latest Official U.K. Charts will be published late Friday local time.
