Dave and Central Cee: A record-breaking number one for Sprinter

Cee and Dave from Central

With their new song, Sprinter, Dave and Central Cee have topped the UK charts and broken a streaming record.

The joint song received 13.4 million streams last week, which is the most ever for a rap song.

The amount of first week streams is also the highest since 24 million people listened to Adele's Easy On Me in 2021.

The pair's smash is a lighthearted, self-aware song that indulges in rap clichés while recognizing their absurdity.

It's taken from a surprise EP called Split Decision, where the two old friends reunited after working together on a remix of AJ Tracey's Spirit Bomb in 2016.

Trojan Horse and UK Rap, two more songs from the EP, both cracked the top 20 this week.

Madonna and Kylie Minogue, two popular singers, each have their biggest hit songs in years on this week's chart.

Thanks in large part to fans purchasing a limited-edition CD single from Kylie's official website, her hypnotic new single Padam Padam rises 11 spots to number 12.

The result is that the song surpasses Into The Blue from 2014, which also peaked at number 12, as the artist's highest charting hit.

Kylie Minogue
Kylie Minogue's single Padam Padam is her 52nd top 40 hit in the UK.

Popular, a song she wrote with The Weeknd and Playboi Carti, marks Madonna's comeback.

It debuts at number 21, giving the Queen of Pop her highest chart position since Celebration reached position three in 2009. The song is taken from the HBO drama series Idol.

With the release of the Sam Smith duet "Vulgar" next week, Madonna is expected to score another new hit.

The cheekily credited "Sandamp;M" song features the singers retaliating against those who have criticized their sexually suggestive lyrics and attire.

But Here We Are gives Foo Fighters their sixth number-one album on the charts.

The band's first album since the tragic passing of drummer Taylor Hawkins shows them coming to terms with their feelings of grief and desolation.

The song barely edged out Noel Gallagher's Council Skies in the last seven days with 44,500 chart units sold.

His album debuts at number two, breaking a streak of 10 number-one albums from both Oasis and his current band, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, that spanned 29 years and 10 albums.

Council Skies, on the other hand, makes its debut at the top of the vinyl albums chart and was the week's top seller in independent record stores in the UK.
