Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s Justin Bieber-featured track ‘Despacito’ holds #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for a fourth consecutive week.

Moving up five spots to #3 in its fifth week in the top 50, ‘Slow Hands’ takes over from ‘This Town’ (#5 Oct. ’16) as Niall Horan’s highest solo peak.

With a jump of four spots to #5 for ‘Strip That Down’, Liam Payne hits the top five for the first time as a solo artist. He becomes the fourth ex-One Direction member to do so.

This week marks a return to the top 50 at #35 for Ariana Grande’s #15 hit from 2015, ‘One Last Time’. It comes following the One Love Manchester benefit concert held last weekend. The track was performed by Grande and most of the show’s featured artists as the penultimate song of the evening.

Also on this week’s chart, there are new peaks for Charlie Puth’s ‘Aftermath’ (#13), Jonas Blue’s ‘Mama’ (#14), Halsey’s ‘Now Or Never’ (#16), Cheat Codes’ ‘No Promises’ (#17), Rita Ora’s ‘Your Song’ (#21), Imagine Dragons’ ‘Thunder’ (#28), Post Malone’s ‘Congratulations’ (#34), Lil Uzi Vert’s ‘XO Tour Llif3’ (#37) and Hailee Steinfeld’s ‘Most Girls’ (#39).


#38: Major Lazer Feat. Travis Scott, Camila Cabello & Quavo ‘Know No Better’ – American trio Major Lazer pick up their second chart entry for 2017 with ‘Know No Better’. The follow-up to ‘Run Up’ (#27 Feb. ’17) features appearances from rapper Travis Scott, ex-Fifth Harmony member turned solo artist Camila Cabello and Migos member Quavo.

#40: Peking Duk & AlunaGeorge ‘Fake Magic’ – Canberra-formed electronic duo Peking Duk score their fifth entry in the ARIA top 50 as they team up with British duo AlunaGeorge for ‘Fake Magic’. It’s Peking Duk’s first entry on the Singles Chart since ‘Stranger’ (#5 Jan. ’17), while AlunaGeorge last charted with the DJ Snake collaboration ‘You Know You Like It’ (#11 Jul. ’15).

#46: Lorde ‘Perfect Places’ – Ahead of the release of Melodrama on 16 June, Lorde scores another Singles Chart entry from it with ‘Perfect Places’. It’s the third track from the album to hit the top 50, following on from ‘Green Light’ (#4 Mar. ’17) and ‘Liability’ (#42 Mar. ’17).
