See You Again, which features Charlie Puth on vocals, has become the quickest-selling single of the year and has racked up 3.72 million listens in the last seven days.

OMI's Cheerleader - which pulled in 3.33 million streams this week - holds firm at number two followed by former chart-topper Jess Glynne's Hold My Hand.

Clean Bandit are at number four with the track Stronger. It features vocals from Glee star Alex Newell and Sean Bass and marks the quartet's fifth UK Top 40.

Nick Jonas completes the top five with the track Jealous.
