LF System two-month reign in the UK is over, capped by Eliza Rose’s “BOTA (Baddest Of Them All)” (via Warner Records), which climbs to the top in its sixth week.
Rose’s viral hit with Interplanetary Criminal lifts 2-1 on Official UK Singles Chartsand squeezes LF System’s summer smash “Afraid to Feel” (Warner Records) to No. 2, ending its eight-week unbroken streak.
According to Official Charts Company, “BOTA” is the UK’s No. 1,400. 1 single, and Rose becomes the first female DJ to top the chart in two decades since Sonique’s “It Feels So Good” in 2002.
“BOTA” has gathered steam through the festival season OCC reports that accumulated a market-leading 4.8 million streams during the most recent cycle.
Although it misses out on top billing, “Hold Me Closer” becomes Elton’s fourth consecutive Top 5 entry in a year. And it represents a strong comeback for Britney, her first song since 2016 and highest peak since Will.I.Am-led “Scream & Shout” in 2012.
“Hold Me Closer” blasted to No.1 on the Australian Singles Chart last Friday.
Another new entry hits the UK top 10 this week. David Guetta and Bebe Rexhas “I’m Good (Blue)” (via Parlophone) arrives at No. 7, fueled by a viral demo of the track, originally cut in 2017. It’s Rexha’s fourth top 10 appearance and first in five years. Guetta now has 28 chart-topping entries, the latest coming in April with “Crazy What Love Can Do,” which peaked at No. 5.
Finally Australia DJ and producer Luude has another top 10 single with “Big City Life” (Warner Records), his dance music lump with Mattafix. It’s the follow-up to Luude’s “Down Under” featuring Men at Works Colin Hay, which accelerated all the way to No. 5 earlier this year. “Big City Life” rises 11-10 in its 10th week on the survey.
