However, while the Olympics effect is strong in the new chart, it hasn't manage to stop Rita Ora stampeding her way to the top spot with her new single, 'How We Do (Party)'. The singer is set to score her third consecutive chart topper with the track following No.1 success with her DJ Fresh collaboration 'Hot Right Now' and solo single, 'RIP'.
