Doja Cat’s ‘Paint The Town Red’ single dominates #1 for second week

by Patria

For the second week in a row, Doja Cat is officially at #1 in the UK with Paint The Town Red.

Last week, Paint The Town Red became Doja’s first ever UK Number 1 single and continues to hold the top spot despite strong competition from Olivia Rodrigo. The hard-hitting rap track, which features a sample of the Dionne Warwick classic Walk On By, is the most streamed track in the country for the second week in a row.

Meanwhile, two tracks from Olivia Rodrigo’s now #1 album GUTS round out the top 3 – former chart-topper Vampire jumps back up to #2, while pop-punk rager Bad Idea Right? jumps back into the Top 10, reaching a brand new high of #3. Olivia also secures the highest new entry of the week as get him back! debuts at #7, becoming her seventh Top 10 single.

Fred again… and Obongjayar also climb to a new peak today with adore u at number five (4) and Cassö, RAYE & D-Block Europe’s Prada at number two (5).

Just outside the top 10, dance newcomer Kenya Grace’s elegant Strangers climbs eight to number 12, while Troye Sivan’s Rush dances to a brand new peak at number 21.

Continuing their weeks-long climb, Issey Cross’ Verve-sampling solo breakout hit Bittersweet Goodbye lands at #22, Burna Boy’s City Boys moves up nine to #23, and BTS member V secures his first solo singles chart entry with Slow Dancing, which debuts at #24.

Leigh-Anne and Ayra Starr bring another brand-new entry this week with My Love (28), which is the second Top 40 entry in each artist’s career, while The Rolling Stones’ Angry (34) gives the rock legends their first UK Top 40 single since 2005. Taken from the Stones’ forthcoming new album Hackney Diamonds, Angry’s buzzy new music video stars Euphoria actress Sydney Sweeney.

Finally, Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion have reunited following their #1 hit WAP in 2020. The frantic Bongos debuts at number 35, becoming Cardi’s 14th and Megan’s fifth Top 40 hit.
