Eliza Rose and Interplanetary Criminal’s summer dance anthem, ‘B.O.T.A (Baddest Of Them All)’, has reached No. 1 in the Official UK Singles Charts.

Knocking Scottish duo LF System off the top spot after over seven weeks as reigning UK champions, ‘B.O.T.A (Baddest Of Them All)’ has overtaken the likes of Elton John and Britney Spears, Beyoncé, David Guetta, Nicki Minaj and Harry Styles to claim the No. 1 spot.

Released in June this year, the track began building momentum over the summer, quickly finding favour at festivals and viral popularity on TikTok — most recently used by Manchester United. The tune's Lewis Carroll inspired video, directed by Faboo TV founder Jeanie Crystal, which celebrates the LGBTQ+ performance art and nightlife community of Hackney, London, has amassed over 1.3 million views on YouTube.

The single is the 1,400th ever Official UK No. 1, and also makes Rose becoming the first female DJ to top the Official Singles Chart in over 20 years.
