The song knocked Jason Derulo's Want To Want Me down to number three in the charts after four weeks in the pole position.

The single racked up a combined sales of 110,000 to become Tinie's sixth number one, according to the Official Charts Company.

The British rap artist previously topped the charts with tracks Pass Out, Written In The Stars, RIP, Tsunami (Jump) and, most recently, Crazy Stupid Love featuring Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

Belgian producer Lost Frequencies climbed a staggering 44 places to enter the chart at number two with Are You With Me this week.

Walk The Moon's Shut Up & Dance came in at number four, climbing one place, whilst Major Lazer, Mo and DJ Snake's Lean On dropped from number two to five.

American star Flo Rida entered at number seven with I Don't Like It, I Love It, featuring Robin Thicke and Verdine White - his 14th UK Top 10 hit.

Elsewhere in the chart, X Factor finalists Stereo Kicks, who were mentored by Louis Walsh during the competition, landed at number 31 with their debut single Love Me So.

In the album charts, Florence + The Machine reclaimed the coveted number one spot once again with How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful following a show-stopping headline performance at Glastonbury on Friday night.

The band stood in for the billed headline band Foo Fighters, who were forced to pull out after lead singer Dave Grohl broke his leg earlier this month.

Florence saw off tough competition from midweek chart leaders Wolf Alice and their debut album My Love Is Cool, which finished just 528 combined sales behind in the number two spot.

Drones by Muse, l ast week's number one, dropped to number three while Taylor Swift re-entered the top 10 at number four with 1989 , after a busy week touring the UK.

Ed Sheeran's X remained at number five, over a year after it was first released.
