Despacito hits eleven weeks at #1

July 29, 2017

Big moves for Macklemore, Kesha and more!

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee have racked up their eleventh straight week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart with their Justin Bieber-featured single ‘Despacito’.

Climbing eight spots from last week, ‘Glorious’ hits a new peak and becomes Macklemore’s first top 10 on the ARIA Singles Chart as a solo artist.

Following the passing of the Linkin Park’s front man, Chester Bennington last week, the Californian band’s catalogue has experienced an enormous surge in sales. Six tracks feature in the top 50 on this week’s ARIA Singles Chart. Linkin Park are also charting with ‘Numb’ (#18), ‘Heavy’ featuring Kiiara (#39), ‘What I’ve Done’ (#40), ‘Numb / Encore’ featuring Jay-Z (#48) and ‘One Step Closer’ (#49).

In its third week in the ARIA Top 50 Singles Chart, Kesha’s ‘Praying’ moves back up six spots to hit a new peak of #16.

This week’s Singles Chart also includes a new peak for Demi Lovato’s ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ (#28).

#26: Louis Tomlinson Feat. Bebe Rexha & Digital Farm Animals ‘Back To You’ –  Former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson scores his second entry on the ARIA Singles Chart as a solo artist with ‘Back To You’.

#46: Dua Lipa ‘New Rules’ – Dua Lipa scores a fourth entry on the ARIA Singles Chart with ‘New Rules’.
