American rapper Wiz Khalifa's tribute to Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker looks set to top the charts for another week, according to the latest sales figures.

See You Again, which features Charlie Puth on vocals, has already become the quickest-selling single of the year.

It pays tribute to the actor who played Brian O'Conner in the hit films and was killed in a car crash in November 2013 while the new movie was being made.

Mid-week sales figures from the Official Charts Company show it outselling its nearest rival, OMI's Cheerleader, by more than 10,000 copies.

Clean Bandit are on track for a fourth Top Five single, with Stronger new at number three .

Other new entries this week include French DJ and producer Michael Calfan whose track Treasured Soul is at number nine and former Westlife star Markus Feehily whose debut solo single Love Is A Drug is new at number 36.
