UK Chart Roundup: Jess Glynne Is #1 For A Third Time

Back in January, I wrote that Jess Glynne's second official solo single "Hold My Hand," a jubilant house-pop gem if ever there was one, deserved to become a big hit. And lo and behold, the song is perched at #1 in the UK for a second week, making her the only only artist to be a part of three different chart-topping singles by three different lead acts. (Her vocals, in case you forgot, also appear on Clean Bandit's Grammy-winning "Rather Be" and Route 94's  "My Love.")

Looking ahead, Nick Jonas' 2014 Top 10 hit (in America) "Jealous" was finally released across the pond today, and it's currently at #3 on iTunes, stuck behind "Hold My Hand" (#2) and Voice winner Stevie McRorie's rendition of "Lost Stars" (#1).

The UK Top 10:

1. "Hold My Hand" - Jess Glynne *2 weeks*
2. "Bloodstream" - Ed Sheeran & Rudimental
3. "Hold Back The River" - James Bay
4. "King" - Years & Years
5. "Uptown Funk" - Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars 
6. "FourFiveSeconds" - Rihanna, Kanye West & Paul McCartney
7. "Sugar" - Maroon 5
8. "Take Me To Church" - Hozier
9. "Love Me Like You Do" - Ellie Goulding
10. "Elastic Heart" - Sia
