UK Number 1 Singles 2020

Here we present an ever-growing list of the No.1 singles in the UK during 2020. This includes not only the official No.1 but also the No.1 streamed track and the No.1 sales single for the same week, as we think this is an interesting comparison. We start the list from the charts released on 10th January and dated 16th January as this is the first one with sales wholly from 2020.

95% of "sales" included in the Official chart come from streaming. You might therefore expect the Official No.1 to generally reflect the Streaming No.1 but we can see that's not the case. It's also relatively rare for all three No.1s to be the same - we've marked these occasions in bold.

Data from OCC charts. Updated to 2/7/20.

  1. Of course the main reason the no.1 streamer is not always the official no.1 is because of ACR. Without ACR, Dance Monkey would've been no. 1 officially for the first 3 weeks and Blinding Lights would have been officially no.1 on 2/4/20, 14/5/20, and 21/5/20.

  2. It looks like your streaming list is the audio streaming chart since Roses was no.1 on 26/3/2020 because of video streams. I believe OCC also do a combined chart for overall streams BUT it is not chart equivalent whereas I think the audio streams is... though i could be wrong.

  3. Hi David - yes, that's right this is audio streams which is the nearest equivalent to the singles chart as far as I know

    1. Generally the video streams are only a small proportion of the chart equivalent streams compared to audio streams, but as mentioned above, they can occasionally make a difference.
