Solidifying its hold on the record for most weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart, Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape Of You’ occupies the #1 spot for a fifteenth week.

Moving up two spots from last week to #4, ‘Symphony’ becomes Clean Bandit’s third top five single, following ‘Rather Be’ (#2 Mar. ’14) and ‘Rockabye’ (#1 Dec. ’16).

Jumping up seven spots to #10, ‘The Cure’ becomes Lady Gaga’s eleventh top ten as a lead artist. It’s also her first top ten appearance since ‘The Edge Of Glory’ (#2 Jul. ’11).

Further down the chart, there’s new peaks this week for Dean Lewis’ ‘Waves’ (up four to #17), G-Eazy & Kehlani’s ‘Good Life’ (up eight to #23), Kyle’s ‘iSpy’ (up one to #35), Bliss N Eso’s ‘Moments’ (up six to #37) and Cheat Codes’ ‘No Promises’ (up nine to #41).


#8: Shawn Mendes ‘There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back’ – Canadian artist Shawn Mendes scores his third top ten on the ARIA Singles Chart with ‘There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back’.
