Drake holds for a second week atop the ARIA Singles Chart with his track “One Dance” (#3 DL/#1 Str), which is also spending its fifth week at No.1 in the UK and now just this past week attained the top spot on the US Billboard chart too.
Holding its No.2 debut position this week are Calvin Harris and Rihanna with “This is What You Came for” (#1 DL/#2 Str), which is now certified Gold (●) in sales after only two weeks on sales and the track could take over the top spot next week if it weren’t for the fact that we have two big acts debuting in the next two positions.
