QUOTE(https://www.officialcharts.com/chart-news/cheryls-biggest-hits-on-the-official-uk-chart__28913/)
If there's one thing Cheryl cannot be faulted on, it's her dependability to deliver an incredible live show. Following last year's main stage performance at Manchester Pride alongside Ariana Grande, she's back on the road this summer for more outdoor shows, including a headline slot Mighty Hoopla festival.

The London festival, which takes places on June 6, brings together the best pure pop's present and past, from Atomic Kitten, Gabrielle, Alphabeat and Anastacia to Allie X and Becky Hill. Sister Sledge and UK garge icon Lisa Maffia are among the latest acts to join the bill.

To celebrate this Cherylaissance, we're revealing her biggest hits, based on UK sales and streams using Official Charts Company data.

Cheryl's debut single from 2009, Fight For This Love, finishes top of the pile, with an impressive 1.2 million chart sales, made up of 1.05 milion pure sales and 16.6 million streams. Anticipation around Cheryl's first post-Girls Aloud release was sky-high at the time: her appointment as judge on the The X Factor, the UK's most popular show at the time, had quickly turned her into the nation's sweetheart. Fight For This Love landed straight in at Number 1, spent two weeks at the top and finished as the fourth best-selling single of 2009.

As evidenced in her all-time Top 10, Cheryl is best when she's in banger territory; and her second biggest single is probably the banger-iest of them all, 2012's Call My Name. The ballsy, neon-bright dance stomper - produced by Calvin Harris - launched Cheryl's third album A Million Lights and became her third Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart. It's chart sales to date stand at 557,000.

In third place is Crazy Stupid Love (524,000), a Number 1 hit in 2014 and Cheryl's most-streamed song with 19.2 million plays, while 2010 chart-topper Promise This is fourth on 474,000 chart sales. Her fifth and most recent Number 1 single, I Don't Care, places sixth on 368,000 chart sales.

Beyond the (many) chart-toppers, Top 5 hit Parachute - the third single from her debut album 3 Words - is fifth, and her will.i.am collaboration Heartbreaker, released while she was still in Girls Aloud, is eighth.

Narrowly missing out on a place in the Top 10 is Cheryl's comeback track Love Made Me Do It, a Top 20 in 2018, while her most popular album track is Heaven, another will.i.am collab from her debut album.

I'm surprised Crazy Stupid Love has more streams than Fight For This Love. I know it came out in the streaming era but I'd have thought FFTL would be massively outstreaming each year now

Wow. All these sales are underwhelming, thought some songs had more total units. Basically nobody is streaming/buying her music.

Spotify seems to suggest this too; 55m vs 20m in favour of Fight. And the majority of those likely coming from the UK for both.

Fight For This Love is playing catch-up - it is averaging just over 1,000 sales per week, compared to Crazy Stupid Love doing just over 300. Crazy certainly benefited from being a hit just as streaming started to be counted, giving it a big head start on Fight.


This is when Cheryl is due to achieve her next certifications with her #1s, based on the current weekly averages:

Imminently - Fight For This Love [2xPlatinum, 1,200k+]
December 2021 - Call My Name [Platinum, 600k+]
February 2022 - I Don't Care [Gold, 400k+]
August 2024 - Crazy Stupid Love [Platinum, 600k+]
