Becky Hill's biggest songs on the Official Chart
27 August 2021 | By Rob Copsey

Since appearing on the first series of The Voice back in 2012, Becky Hill has tirelessly turned out uplifting, emotional and highly danceable pop bangers to make her one of the modern greats of UK dance music.

Whether a headliner or a guest feature, the Bewdley-born artist makes her presence known on a track with her unmistakable powerhouse vocals and ear-snagging lyrics.

To date she's notched up 12 Top 40 hits on the Official Singles Chart, including one Number 1, while her Get To Know collection - a compilation of her early hits - is certified Gold and is about to hit 100 weeks on the Albums Top 100.

This week sees the release of her long-awaited debut album proper, Only Honest At The Weekend, trailed by Remember - a collaboration with David Guetta that is shaping up to become one of her most successful singles. Given it was released at the end of June - and the sheer number of Becky hits - it just misses out on Becky's all-time Top 10, which we've revealed below. First, a closer look at the Top 5...

5. Lose Control with Meduza and Goodboys (2019)
Official Chart peak: 11
UK chart sales: 898,000

This collaboration with prodcution trios Meduza and Goodboys is a rare instance where Becky provides vocals only - but what a vocal it is. The deep house track was a hit across Europe and narrowly missed the Top 10 in the UK, but is fast-approaching 1 million UK chart sales regardless, with 107 million streams.

4. Wish You Well with Sigala (2019)
Official Chart peak: 8
UK chart sales: 985,000

One of two Sigala collaborations in her Top 10, Wish You Well is belting, club-classics styled house-pop that borders on gospel by the time it reaches the chorus. It ranks as Becky's fourth biggest song overall and is currently her most-streamed with 116,000 plays.

3. Piece Of Me with MK (2016)
Official Chart peak: 37
UK chart sales: 1.05 million

As has been the case with several of Becky's tracks, Piece Of Me is a grower rather than a shower, quietly infiltrating dancefloors and radio until it suddenly becomes ubiquitous. Her 2016 hook-up with US DJ MK may have only reached Number 37, but its presence has endured, logging 18 weeks in the Top 100 and 104 million UK streams.

2. Afterglow with Wilkinson (2013)
Official Chart peak: 8
UK chart sales: 1.08 million

Released shortly after her stint on The Voice, Becky's soaring vocals on Wilkinson's drum and bass number Afterglow were originally uncredited, but she has since been added as a named artist - she's also a co-writer on the song.

1. Gecko (Overdrive) with Oliver Heldens (2014)
Official Chart peak: 1
UK chart sales: 1.38 million

Two interesting details about this future-house thumping chart-topper: 1.) It makes Becky the only Voice contestant to score a Number 1 single, and 2.) It was the last UK Number 1 based on sales alone, as streaming was incorporated into the chart the following week.

Produced by the Dutch DJ, who initially had underground success with the vocal-less original, the radio-friendly version of Gecko was co-written by Becky with MNEK, who have gone on to regularly collaborate. With a mighty 1.38 million chart sales, including 108 milllion streams, it's Becky's biggest hit so far on the Official Chart.

Becky Hill's Official Top 10 biggest songs

1 GECKO (OVERDRIVE) OLIVER HELDENS & BECKY HILL 1 2014 1,380,000

3 PIECE OF ME MK & BECKY HILL 37 2016 1,050,000
4 WISH YOU WELL SIGALA & BECKY HILL 8 2019 985,000
5 LOSE CONTROL MEDUZA/BECKY HILL/GOODBOYS 11 2019 898,000
6 BACK & FORTH MK/JONAS BLUE/BECKY HILL 12 2018

So if she has now been credited on Afterglow, does that mean it should be added onto her Chart History on the Friday Chart countdown biggrin.gif

great to see the OCC retroactively crediting her for Afterglow, she’d already been added as a credit on Spotify and it was on her compilation so it only makes sense.
impressive that it has a million chart points and even more so for Piece of Me! very pleased that Gecko is still her biggest hit too.

Can we now get the OCC to retroactively add Anne-Marie and Sean Paul to the credits of 'Rockabye' which they were never uncredited on... tongue.gif

Cool list of the same song 10 times here. (Only slightly being facetious)

'Piece of Me' really feels bigger than #37, although back in that era it was nigh-on impossible to get a decent peak.

To be fair, a good half of that list are essentially the same song. 😅
