Drake retains the No.1 slot on the ARIA Singles Chart with his third chart-topper for the year “In My Feelings”, which also holds at the top in New Zealand, England, America and his native Canada.

Drake has now amassed 22 weeks at the top of the Australian Charts with his four No.1 songs, moving him from equal fourth to now outright fourth on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Singles; 2010’s’, one week behind his former partner Rihanna (23 weeks), and six weeks away from catching fellow country-man Justin Bieber (28 weeks), while sitting at the top of that list is Ed Sheeran (29 weeks).

5 Seconds of Summer stay stable at No.2 for a second week after their eight week rule at No.1 with their albums title track “Youngblood”, which is newly certified 3x▲Platinum in sales, while the second Aussie act within the Top 10 (of 3 in total) is Dean Lewis who is up one spot to a new peak of No.3 with “Be Alright”, the third and final Aussie is Conrad Sewell who jumps up seven places to a new peak of No.7 with his latest song “Healing Hands” (newly Gold (●) in sales), becoming his third Top 10 single locally too and now second highest charted.

Maroon 5 is down one place to No.4 with “Girls Like You” featuring Cardi B., while last weeks highest new entry for Ariana Grande and “God is a Woman” and the Post Malone track “Better Now” are both on hold at No.5 and No.6 respectively.
