Week five at #1 for Despacito

Debuts for David Guetta, The Veronicas and more!

It’s week five at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s Justin Bieber-featured track ‘Despacito’. It’s currently also spending its fifth week at #1 in the US and UK.

In its fourth week in the chart, Liam Payne’s ‘Strip That Down’ has climbed up a further two spots, snaring a new peak at #3.

A jump of eight spots to #20 for ‘Thunder’ moves Imagine Dragons into the top 20 for the first time since late-2013.

At #36, Childish Gambino’s ‘Redbone’ returns to the top 50 for the first time since February 2017. Its resurgence comes on the back of it becoming a popular internet meme.

This week’s chart also includes new peaks for Charlie Puth’s ‘Attention’ (#12), Jonas Blue’s ‘Mama’ (#13), Rita Ora’s ‘Your Song’ (#19), Martin Garrix & Troye Sivan’s ‘There For You’ (#23), Post Malone’s ‘Congratulations’ (#32), Major Lazer’s ‘Know No Better’ (#34), Hailee Steinfeld’s ‘Most Girls’ (#37) and Maggie Lindemann’s ‘Pretty Girl’ (#40).


#2: David Guetta Feat. Justin Bieber ‘2U’ – With his second single release of 2017, French house DJ/producer David Guetta picks up his tenth top 5 as a lead artist on the ARIA Singles Chart. The follow-up single to ‘Light My Body Up’ (#29 Apr. ’17), ‘2U’ features vocals by Justin Bieber. Guetta’s first single to hit the top five was ‘Sexy Bitch’ (#1 Aug. ’09).

#41: The Veronicas ‘The Only High’ – Brisbane duo The Veronicas hit the chart for the first time in 2017 with ‘The Only High’. Like ‘In My Blood’ (#1 Jul. ’16) and ‘On Your Side’ (#19 Nov. ’16), the track is slated to appear on The Veronicas’ forthcoming fourth album.

#45: French Montana ‘Unforgettable’ – The ARIA top 50 debut for Morocco-born American rapper French Montana. ‘Unforgettable’ has already hit the top 5 in the UK and top 20 in the US.
