Still a big gap to #1 (~10k) so it probably ends up at #2 - still a fantastic result! :o

Wow, I never thought he would be able to score a come back! Good for him though. Why is it so high? Did he promote it on a big show?

He shouldn't do interviews. They'll bring up the past. The music should do all the talking from now on

Very surprised to see this so high on various charts! I was sure he'd be done for, because not only is he an X-Factor winner (which is often a poor sign for longevity), but he's also done and said some less than flattering things.

We'll see about the album, but so far the signs for the single seem very promising.

^ I'm surprised as well, but very happy about that. I really thought he would flop with his 'comeback' and would be forgotten shortly afterwards. Guess that's not the case :)

From the UK Midweek Topic:

Robbie wrote:2012 X Factor winner James Arthur is on course to top singles chart, currently sitting atop the singles chart on sales of 30,423. He swaps places with last week’s chart toppers Chainsmokers, who are at No. 2 with sales of 28,043.

New at No.3 is Weekend feat. Daft Punk with their track Starboy on sales of 20,491, while Calvin Harris’ My Way is up 5-4, notching up sales of 18,825.

UK Singles Charts

1 (2) 3 Say You Won't Let Go

Ending a run of 34 weeks in which an overseas act has topped the chart, James Arthur brings it home with Say You Won't Let Go (2-1, 84,842 sales, including 43,623 from streams), the introductory single from his upcoming second album, Back From The Edge. The 28-year old Yorkshireman was the winner of The X Factor in 2012, scoring his only previous No.1 with his coronation single, Impossible, which spent three weeks at the summit, in 2012/3.

The only other Brit to have a No.1 in 2016 - a year that is now 39 weeks old - is another X Factor graduate, Zayn Malik, formerly of One Direction, who finished third in the competition in 2010. Malik's debut solo single Pillowtalk topped the chart for just one week in February.

Impossible was a cover of a Shontelle track but Say You Won't Let Go is an original song that Arthur penned with UK expat Neil Ormandy and American Steven Solomon of alt.pop duo Sleeping Wolf, both of whom are based in Los Angeles. It is the 41st No.1 by an act or a combination of acts who came to fame on The X Factor.
