It has come as a surprise to Ellie Goulding that for the third week in a row her new single "Burn" has remained number one on the Official Singles Chart.

In a recent interview with BBC's Radio 1's Official Chart Show, the British singer admitted that she never would have foreseen "Burn" be a top charter and for so long.

“It feels amazing, but weird,” Ellie tells Scott Mills. “Weird because I didn’t really expect it to be Number 1, let alone for this amount of time!

Being that Goulding was up against a lot of competition, she feels fortunate that her song is so well received.

“I feel very lucky, because it wasn’t like I released it in a quiet week of mediocre songs,” she adds. “There are some big smashes, so I’m really happy.”

Still, it is shocking to the newbie that she beat out acts like Avicii, Miley Cyrus, and Klangkarussell.

In addition, she never expected to keep Lady Gaga from a spot at number one.

“I didn’t think I had a chance in hell about getting a Number 1 with Avicii’s song around, and Gaga, and Miley,” adds Ellie. “I was surprised! Lady Gaga WILL be Number 1 at some point.”
