Still atop the chart podium pirouetting away for a fourth week is Drake and his “One Dance”, which is back at the top in the USA and spending a seventh week at the summit in the UK this week.
“One Dance” (#4 DL/#1 Str, now ▲Platinum) is now the equal second longest run at the top for 2016, tying the four (of seven, three weeks in Dec 2015) weeks that Justin Bieber and “Love Yourself” (TW-37, #25 Str now 6x▲Platinum) spent at the top throughout all of January, whilst the longest run so far this year is twice as long, eight weeks for Lukas Graham and “7 Years” (TW-18, #22 DL/#13 Str) from mid-Feb to mid-April.
The top three songs are all stable this week in the Top 10, although there is some movement for the songs on the two smaller charts (digital and streaming) that make up the overall chart, with Calvin Harris and Rihanna at No.2 for a fourth straight week with “This is What You Came for” (#2 DL/#2 Str, now ▲Platinum) and at No.3 is Justin Timberlake with the new No.1 digital selling track “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” (#1 DL/#6 Str, newly Gold (●) in sales), whilst former No.1 “Just Like Fire” (#3 DL/#17 Str) for Pink is back up three places to No.4 thanks to the film its from (Alice Through the Looking Glass) opening soon and promo ads for it started on TV this week plus her performance of the song at the Billboard Music Awards last weekend.
Down one place to No.5 are The Chainsmokers and Daya with “Don’t Let Me Down” (#8 DL/#4 Str) for a third non-consecutive time at No.5, and by spending its eight week within the Top 10 it has notched up as much time within the ten as their two previous entries did, both “#SELFIE” and “Roses” (TW-39, #21 Str) stayed within the ten for four weeks apiece. And also back up is Flume and “Say it” (#7 DL/#5 Str) to a new peak of No.6, with his album “Skin” released on Friday, it could rise again next week, whilst back up one place to No.7 is Gnash with “I Hate U, I Love U” (#10 DL/#15 Str).
After first charting last November for a week at No.68, and returning back to the charts in March, the Joe Jonas led group DNCE sees their first entry “Cake by the Ocean” (#9 DL/#14 Str) leap up twelve places to land within the Top 10 at No.8, making Joe the first of the Jonas Brothers to reach the Top 10 in Australia, as Nick’s track “Jealous” reached No.15 in March 2015 and when they were a group they got as high as No.31 with “Burnin’ Up” (peaked Oct 2008). Climbing one place to a new peak of No.9 is Desiigner with his “Panda” (#12 DL/#3 Str, now Gold (●) in sales), and after leaping into the Top 10 last week, Galantis drop back down four to No.10 with “No Money” (#11 DL/#7 Str).

The latest Drake and Rihanna teaming on “Too Good” (#36 DL/#11 Str) leaps sixteen spots to land at No.22 thanks to really strong streaming figures (39 to 11) and up four to a new chart height of No.27 is Kungs and local act Cookin’ on 3 Burners with “This Girl” (#24 DL), which is currently Top 10 in France, Germany and Switzerland. Little Mix leap into the Top 40 with “Hair” (#30 DL), up eleven to No.34 and jumping thirteen places to a new peak of No.36 are Cheat Codes with “Sex” (#30 Str), and lastly leaping into the Top 50, again thanks to her new No.1 album, Ariana Grande and “Into You” is up thirty-three spots to No.46.
DOWN: The only dropout from the Top 10 is last weeks Eurovision returning track for Dami Im and “Sound of Silence” (HP-5, WI10-1, #17 DL) which falls twenty places to No.25 this week. Within the Top 20 are two tracks which drop a single place each and also achieve 2x▲Platinum, being “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” (#14 DL/#9 Str) by Mike Posner and “Work from Home” (#18 DL/#8 Str) for Fifth Harmony to No.13 and No.14 respectively. “Be the One” (#15 DL/#18 Str) for Dua Lipa drops five to No.16 and also falling five is Delta Goodrem and “Dear Life” (#13 DL) to No.20, the track now Gold (●) in sales.
