In fifth position is Wealdstone Raider's 'Got No Fans', which moved up 32 places after entering the Top 200 last Wednesday.

Take That's 'These Days', Taylor Swift's 'Black Space' and One Direction's 'Night Changes' comes in at six, seven and eight, respectively. Meanwhile Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding's collaborative effort 'Outside' places at nine and Meghan Trainor's 'All About That Bass' rounds up the top 10 tracks this week.
