The Weeknd earns his first chart-topping U.K. single, as “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic/Universal) climbs 2-1 on the new Official Charts Company survey.
“Blinding Lights” makes the grade in its tenth chart week, with 63,000 combined units. That's 8,000 ahead of Roddy Ricch's “The Box” (Atlantic/Warner), which moves back 3-2. The Weeknd's previous best showing was 2016's No. 2 hit “Starboy,” featuring Daft Punk. Last week's No. 1 single, Lewis Capaldi's “Before You Go” (EMI/Universal), falls to No. 3.
Dua Lipa's “Don't Start Now” (Warner Records) rebounds 6-4, having spent three weeks at No. 2 at the beginning of its chart run in November. Eminem's “Godzilla” (Interscope/Universal), featuring Juice Wrld, is down 4-5.
