For a third week, Drake with Wizkid and Kyla are at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart with “One Dance” (#4 DL/#1 Str), also spending a sixth week at No.1 in the UK this week too.
“One Dance” has such a large streaming lead again this week, whilst only at No.4 on the digital chart, plus his album “Views” went to streaming services this past week, helping to cement the song in the top spot here. Thus it keeps Calvin Harris and Rihanna at No.2 for a third straight week with “This is What You Came for” (#1 DL/#2 Str), a place the pair have spent many weeks at in the past, as their collaboration on “We Found Love” debuted at No.3, and then climbed to No.2 for five straight weeks in October and November of 2011.
Justin Timberlake climbs one spot to a new peak of No.3 with last weeks debut of “Can’t Stop the Feeling” (#2 DL/#8 Str) which he performed last weekend at the Grand Final of Eurovision, plus its becomes his seventh Top 3 single here and also debuts at No.1 in the US Billboard chart this week too, whilst back up one spot to No.4 are The Chainsmokers and Daya with “Don’t Let Me Down” (#7 DL/#3 Str).
And speaking of Eurovision last weekend, Australia was leading the tally board during the G.F., but the last three votes that came through (in the new voting system) pushed the Ukraine above us, leaving us in second position when all the votes were tabulated. So Dami Im and her song “Sound of Silence” (#3 DL/no Str) returns to the Top 100 at No.5, having previously spent a single week in the charts at No.68 back on March 18th. Any by re-entering the chart and landing within the Top 10, this now becomes her second Top 10 single in Australia after her X-Factor winning single “Alive” debuted at No.1 in October 2013. Currently the song is charting throughout Europe in England (#160), Scotland (#53), Finland (#11), Sweden (#17), Netherlands (#100), Belgium (#33), Germany (#57) and France (#69), with more to come as the charts are issued this weekend (thanks to David Fuller for some of those positions too).
Another act scoring more Top 10 entries this week are Galantis, whose new track “No Money” (#6 DL/#6 Str) is up five places to land at a new peak of No.6, giving them their third Top 10 after “Runaway (U & I)” (HP-4, April 2015) and “Peanut Butter Jelly” (HP-3, August 2015). After which we have three songs all dropping a single place, with Pink and “Just Like Fire” (now ▲Platinum, #5 DL/#16 Str), “I Hate U I Love U” (#9 DL/#12 Str) by Gnash and Olivia O’Brien and “Say it” (#10 DL/#4 Str) for Flume and Tove Lo (newly Gold (●) in sales) to numbers seven, eight and nine respectively. Lastly the third new song to the Top 10 this week is from US rapper Desiigner with his debut track “Panda” (#15 DL/#5 Str) which jumps up five places to land a new peak of No.10.
UP: Continuing their slow climb up the chart are Little Mix and Jason DeRulo with “Secret Love Song” (#13 DL/#36 Str), this week up one spot to a new peak of No.16 and now newly certified ▲Platinum in sales. The high entry for the second Meghan Trainor album this week helps pull her new single “Me Too” (#12 DL/no Str) along for the ride, the track leaping thirty-three places to No.18 and right behind her recent Top 10 single “No” (#18 DL#25 Str) is back up a couple of spot to No.19. DNCE are up one spot to a new peak of No.20 with “Cake by the Ocean” (#24 DL/#23 Str), and jumping ten to a new chart height of No.22 is Anne-Marie with “Do it Right” (#19 DL/no Str). Kungs vs. Cookin’ on 3 Burners are stable at No.31 this week with “This Girl” (#25 DL/no Str) after which there are four songs entering the Top 50 for the first time, led by Drake and Rihanna with “Too Good” (55 to 38, #40 DL/#39 Str) and also solo for Rihanna is “Needed Me” (54 to 48, #28 Str), Little Mix with Sean Paul and “Hair” (61 to 45, #37 DL/no Str), and Cheat Codes and Kris Kross Amsterdam with their lyric-sampled track “Sex” (75 to 49).
