Feel” at the top of the Official U.K. Singles Chart for seven weeks running.

The Official Charts Company reports that “Afraid to Feel” is the most streamed song, with over 5.2 million listens, and that four dance music singles are making an impact on the top 5. This is the first time this has happened in six years.

In September of 2016, when “Closer” by The Chainsmokers and Halsey was at the top of the charts, it marked the last time dance music occupied four of the top five spots.

On the chart dated August 19, 2022, dance acts such as Eliza Rose and Interplanetary Criminal’s “B.O.T.A (Baddest Of Them All)” (via Rosebud) rose 10-2; Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul”(Columbia) fell 2-3; and David Guetta, Becky Hill, and Ella Henderson’s “It’s Crazy What Love Can Do” (Parlophone) rose 7-5.

Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” (Republic Records) is the week’s highest new entry, debuting at position #15 on the Billboard 200. Minaj’s 40th U.K. Top 40 entry, the song samples Rick James’ signature song from 1981, “Super Freak,” and is her highest-charting solo single since “Anaconda” slithered to No. 3 in 2013.

“Big City Life” by Luude and Mattafix (Warner Records) rises 24-16, putting them in a new peak position. The Australian DJ and producer is back with “Big City Life,” the follow-up to 2021’s No. 5-charting “Down Under,” which featured Colin Hay.
