Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi’s 11-week reign at the top of the UK charts with Despacito has been ended by Calvin Harris’ Feels.

The Scottish DJ’s new track, featuring Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Big Sean, has reached the summit of the UK Official Singles Chart, it was announced on Friday.

Feels rose from number three, while Despacito fell to number four, after an impressive run at the helm.

The Puerto Rican reggaeton beat had already been named the summer’s biggest hit, having surpassed Justin Bieber’s Sorry as the most streamed track ever, with 4.6 billion streams across platforms such as YouTube and Spotify.

Feels marks the eighth UK number one hit for Harris, meaning he has the second highest number of chart-topping singles for a British male solo artist behind Sir Cliff Richard, who has 14 chart-toppers under his belt.

It also means the DJ is now on par with the Rolling Stones, who also have eight number one hits in the country.

Harris’ previous number ones include Dance Wiv Me, We Found Love and Sweet Nothing.
