The Drum's Shazam chart is based on the number of times each ad has been Shazamed over the past week using the music identification app.

As the festive season grinds to a halt, travel takes the spotlight in this week's chart with both British Airways and Thomas Cook landing themselves in the top ten.

BA's January effort comes in at number seven with 'Lightning Bolt' by Jake Bugg, which plays as a globetrotting couple are shown searching for their ideal holiday destination.

Taking third place is Thomas Cook's 'You're On Holiday' campaign, thanks to Tam Cooper's 'Bold'. The ad stars a young boy (complete with shark fin) throwing some shapes by the pool.

Meanwhile, 'Army' by Ellie Goulding for ITV and Ben Madeley's 'True Colours' for Center Parcs have also entered the chart.

And Grace and G-Eazy's 'You Don't Own Me' - the score to House of Fraser's #YourRules video, retains the top spot.
