Most Popular

It's kinda hard to believe, but what the music industry-types call 'Q1' is officially done and we're basically a quarter of the way through 2016 already. That means it's nearly Christmas. So, with January-March out of the way, we thought we'd check out the best selling singles of the year so far according to the Official Charts Company.

It's been a bloody brilliant year for music already with the launch of solo Zayn Malik, Shawn Mendes *finally* finding himself all up at number one and One Direction's 'History' music video bringing all the feels. But what's the best selling tune so far, eh?

Thankfully, 'cos we're #lazyjournos (and don't actually have access to the data), the Official Charts Company have compiled a list of 2016's biggest sellers. Lukas Graham's sitting pretty at the top with '7 Years,' Justin Bieber's 'Love Yourself' is jus behind with combined sales of 668,000, CAPS LOCK ZAYN's in there at 7 with 'PILLOWTALK' and yeah; you can see the whole damn thang below.

Oh hey, Little Mix and One Direction.
