The Voice UK’s Ruti Olajugbagbe’s winner’s single misses the Top 10

The Voice UK’s Ruti Olajugbagbe’s winner’s single has just missed out on the top 10 in the Official Chart.


It was Ruti who won The Voice UK 2018 in last Saturday night’s live show, beating favourite Donel Mangena to the title.

Shortly after the live show, Ruti released her winner’s song on iTunes here.

The single is a cover of The Cranberries’ track Dreams, which Ruti closed the live grand final with.

The song quickly shot up the iTunes chart and became the Number 1 download at the start of the week.

But the Official Charts report tonight that the song has debuted at Number 14 following the full seven days of sales and streams.

Although the track couldn’t make it into the top tier of the chart, it’s still the second best performing winners single from an act on The Voice.


Last year’s winner Mo and his cover of Unsteady by The X Ambassadors charted at Number 78 in the Official Chart.

The week after they won, Series 1 champ Leanne Mitchell’s Run To You was at Number 45, in 2013 Andrea Begley managed Number 30 with My Immortal while 2014 winner Jermain Jackman got to Number 75 with And I Am Telling You.

In 2015, Stevie McCrorie had the most success yet with his cover of Lost Stars officially charting at Number 6 while in 2016 Kevin Simm made it to Number 24.


Following her victory, Ruti said: “I wasn’t expecting this… I didn’t expect to get to the blind audition, I don’t know what to say!”

The Voice UK will return to ITV in 2019.
