X Factor's Louisa Johnson scores biggest hit yet with 'Tears'

X Factor winner Louisa Johnson has scored a second Top 10 hit with new song Tears.

The AMAZING single, a collaboration between Louisa and group Clean Bandit, dropped last Friday out of nowhere.

The two acts performed the song together on Saturday night's BGT final and the track has been at Number 2 on iTunes all week.

However, with the official charts now completely all over the place thanks to streaming, Louisa's finished the week at Number 6.

It's her second Top 10 hit and betters the performance of winner's single Forever Young which made it to Number 9 back in December.

Currently the song remains at Number 2 so could well improve on its current position as streaming figures pick up.

Proving the power of streaming in today's charts, Drake today holds on to Number 1 for an eighth week.

The Official Charts Company report that it's the longest reign at the top spot since Rihanna's Umbrella back in 2007, which notched up 10 weeks.

However the song only actually sold 23,000 copies this week, that's around 10,000 fewer than Louisa's winner's single managed in its first week when it reached Number 9.

Elsewhere in the charts today, OneRepublic’s Wherever I Go makes a mark in the Top 40 at Number 36 following a BGT performance while Little Mix's Get Weird album is up seven spots to 9.
