James Masterton's Chart Watch UK

You are reading the fascinating weekly guide to the stories behind the hits populating the Official UK Charts. Read this week's column along with the complete 25-year archive, a resource of over 1300 articles covering a quarter of a century of popular music history.

As you were at the top, but some amazing stories developing below. Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem are going to end up either fighting or copulating. That's generally how these playground fights play themselves out. Panic! At The Disco are Top 20 for the first time in 10 years, managing something precious few acts have ever done before.

Calvin Harris still has ten Number One singles - but perhaps even more, as the man himself begged to differ during the week. Inside I'll explain why. Plus Kanye West and Lil' Pump make the most deliciously rude two minutes you've heard all year. Except that it is a single which truly needs the video to be put into a proper context.

The UK charts keep their Promises and take Calvin Harris to brand new parts of the record books. I'm sorry but that's a bigger story this week than Eminem beating Abba for a record of his own.

The closest Top 3 race in more than a decade comes to a climax with the Number One single enjoying the second-narrowest margin of victory in modern-day chart history. It's a triumph for Benny Blanco as after 12 Number One singles as co-writer or producer he can finally claim one as a performer. Plus we go Korean crazy with BTS landing their first ever Top 40 hit single. But be warned, Baby Shark is in there too.
