New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Persistence has paid off for George
Ezra, who after four weeks of being stuck behind Drake, has returned to No 1.
Originally a two-week chart-topper in early July, Shotgun is back at the top of the UK Singles Chart, pushing Drake's In My Feelings down to No 2. The most streamed and downloaded song of the week, Shotgun is one of only four songs in the last two years to go back to No 1, including Ed Sheeran's Shape of You, Luis Fonsi's Despacito, and the song that originally knocked Shotgun from the top, Baddiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds' Three Lions which triumphantly returned to the top during this summer's World Cup.
