Saint Jhn climbs to Number 1 on this week’s Official Singles Chart with Roses following an incredibly close race for the top spot.
After a steady 11-week climb to the top, the single knocks The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights to Number 2 after five weeks at the summit. Just 210 chart sales separated the two.
The Guyanese-American rapper and producer first released Roses back in 2016. In 2019 teenage Kazakh producer Imanbek released a dance remix of the song, which steadily gained momentum around the world. See all of Saint Jhn’s singles and where they charted.
