Here are some updates on how Runaway is doing in different UK charts as published in the current issue (dated 4 November) issue of Music Week (UK). 
  • In "The Official UK Singles Chart", Runaway is a new entry at number 72 on downloads alone.  Expect to see the single somewhere in the top 20 next week once physical CD sales are included.
  • In the "Hit 40 UK" chart, which is based on both sales and airplay, Runaway is a new entry at number 32.
  • In the "Upfront Club Top 40" chart the remixes of Runaway have moved back up one place to number 12. (weekly chart run: 38, 10, 1, 13, 12)
  • In the "Commercial Pop Top 30" chart, the single has dropped a further 11 places to number 21. (weekly chart run: 17, 2, 10, 21)
  • On the BBC Radio 1 airplay chart, Jamiroquai move up four places to number 20, with 12 plays in the past week (22-28 October). (weekly chart run: 24, 20) 
  • In the "Independent Local Radio" airplay chart, which is based on plays on 46 mainstream local radio stations, Runaway is currently at number 11, climbing one places since last week.  This week it had 1025 plays compared with 908 the previous week.
  • In the overall "UK Radio Airplay Chart", Runaway is at number 15, which is a jump of 12 places from last week. (weekly chart run: 38, 27, 15)

Based on Jamiroquai's rising position on the overall UK airplay chart, Music Week wrote:

"A new song, but a vintage Jamiroquai groove, Runaway moves 27-15, a year to the week after their previous single (Don't) Give Hate A Chance peaked at number nine on the list.  Runaway had modest support last week from Radio One (12 plays) and Radio Two (five) so has plenty of room for growth.  Of 76 other stations playing it last week, its biggest supporters were Kiss 105/108 (31 plays) and its sister stations Kiss 100 FM (30) and Kiss 1010 (29)."

Finally, in video news...

  • In the TV airplay chart, based on video plays (on 22 UK channels) between 22 and 28 October, Runaway moved up ten places to number 16 with 220 plays (180 plays last week). (weekly chart run: 158, 30, 32, 27, 26, 16)
