5 August 2012, 19:50

The band's new single is the biggest new entry of the week while Wiley's 'Heatwave' has reached number one.

Lawson scored the new entry of the weekend today on the Vodafone Big Top 40 with their latest single 'Taking Over Me', while Wiley's 'Heatwave' has proved a sleeper hit by climbing to number one after two weeks on the chart.

The UK grime rapper's latest single 'Heatwave' features Ms. D and climbed a single place earlier today (5th August) to end Calvin Harris and Example's one-week reign on the top spot with their collaborative hit 'We'll Be Coming Back'.

Calvin Harris falls to number two this weekend, while former Big Top 40 number one 'Spectrum (Say My Name)' by Florence & The Machine is at number three.

UK four-piece Lawson followed up their debut single 'When She Was Mine' with the summer themed 'Taking Over Me' this weekend, which was released today and entered the Big Top 40 at number one less than 24 hours after release.

Rounding out the top five songs of the week is Far East Movement's latest song 'Turn Up The Love' featuring Cover Drive, which rose up nineteen places to number five.
