UK Top Shazamed Ads: Volkswagen, B&Q, Deezer and Virgin Media enter the chart

Volkswagen enters the charts at number eight

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.

This week's top three tracks remain the same, but new entries from Iggy Pop, Rag‘n’bone Man, Sigma and Dillon Francis have pushed their way into the rankings.

Entering at number eight this week is Iggy Pop’s ‘The Passenger’ which features in Volkswagen’s new campaign. The 30-second clip starts out with an orchestra performing a classical tune in black and white before changing to colour with Iggy’s track, showcasing the new Golf motor.

Fresh in at nine is B&Q's 'Something New' spot which is backed up by John Mark Nelson's 'Boy'. The ad takes the viewer though the trial of two young boys who are shown learning to live with each other before making peace.
