Sam Smith holds on to the No.1 spot in Australia for a second week with “Too Good at Goodbyes”, even though it’s neither the top selling digital track or the most streamed song of the week.
“Too Good at Goodbyes” enters at No.1 in Canada and retains its UK summit position as well this week, and whilst overall its combined sales give it enough to score a second week here, it is NOT at the top of either the sales or streaming charts, dropping from the top to No.4 on the Digital chart and climbing from last weeks No.9 to now No.4 over on the streaming chart.
