New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Ariana Grande extends her reign at Number 1 the UK Singles Chart with thank u, next on to a fifth week, setting a new streaming record. The track notched up a massive 14.9 million streams this week, 7.9 million of which were from its music video, released last week. It's the highest number of plays in a week in UK chart history, overtaking Ed Sheeran's Shape Of You, which racked up 14.2 million streams in a single week last year.
Grande's fifth week at Number 1 gives her the longest-reigning chart-topper for a female artist since 2008, when Katy Perry managed a five-week stint with I Kissed A Girl.

Meanwhile, Ava Max climbs to Number 2 with Sweet But Psycho, up four positions from last week, and Halsey's Without Me hits a new peak at Number 3.

This week's highest new entry goes to X Factor champion Dalton Harris, whose winner's single The Power Of Love ft. James Arthur debuts at Number 4.

James Arthur has a second Top 10 entry as Rewrite The Stars with Anne-Marie leaps nine spots to 8, 6ix9ine rockets 29 places to Number 9 with Kika ft. Tory Lanez, and Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus debut at 10 with Nothing Breaks Like A Heart.

US rapper Meek Mill scores his first UK Top 40 single with Going Bad ft. Drake at 17, 6ix9ine features a second time with Mama ft. Nicki Minaj and Kanye West at 29, and Tom Walker returns to the Top 40 following his X Factor final performance with Leave A Light On at 31.

Finally, eight Christmas favourites feature on the chart this week, led by Mariah Carey, who zooms 28 places to Number 6 with All I Want For Christmas Is You. The others are: Wham's Last Christmas (14),The Pogues' and Kirsty MacColl's Fairytale of New York (18), Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas (26), Michael Buble's It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas (30), Merry Christmas Everyone from Ariana Grande's Santa Tell Me (35), Shakin' Stevens' Merry Christmas Everyone (36), and Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee (39).
