Official music streaming chart launching in the UK


The UK's first streaming chart will be launched to take into account what people are listening to online.

This is not a download chart, it is based on what people play on sites like Spotify, Napster and We7.

Ed Sheeran comes in at number one on the chart, followed by Lana Del Ray, David Guetta and Rihanna.

BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast spoke to Entertainment Correspondent Colin Paterson.
