Hitmaker Benny Blanco has much to celebrate today. For, after just six days on sale, his new single ‘Diamonds’ has rocketed straight to the top of the Official UK Singles Chart.

The enchanting track, which features popular model Rihanna, bested releases from the likes of One Direction and PSY to achieve the incredible feat.
And while we’re sure all involved in crafting the cut will be celebrating tonight, the fun looks set to be short-lived. Wondering why? Well, Adele‘s James Bond theme ‘Skyfall’ shows no sign of loosening its stronghold on the iTunes top spot. Indeed, in many regards, the haunting number is the week’s true success story. For, after going on sale mid-week, the track shifted enough units to blaze straight into the #4 spot and is a near shoe-in for #1 in many countries (UK included) next week.
That Adele reign just won’t let up!
For now, though, congrats are certainly in order for Blanco, who at just 24 adds another smash to his already impressive resume (‘Moves Like Jagger’, ‘California Gurls’, ‘Dynamite’ among many more).
