Ed Sheeran returns to #1, Chainsmokers and Lorde make big jumps.
Following the release of his third studio album, ÷, Ed Sheeran reclaims the top spot with "Shape of You". This is the song's second non-consecutive week at #1. Three more tracks from the album chart this week: "Castle on the Hill", which has so far peaked at #3 is stable at #5, while "Galway Girl" and "New Man" debut at #33 and #38 respectively.
In the process, Sheeran blocks The Chainsmokers from claiming their fourth #1 with "Something Just Like This", their collaboration with Coldplay from their upcoming studio album Memories...Do Not Open. If the song ends up reaching #1 it would also be Coldplay's second song to do so following last year's "Hymn for the Weekend".
Lorde follows up her impressive debut at #7 with an equally impressive jump into the top 3 with "Green Light", from her upcoming second studio album, Melodrama. Even more, her 2015 collaboration with Disclosure also earns Greatest Gainer honors this week by jumping from #40 to #14, which would seem to indicate that we might soon have two Lorde tracks inside the top 10.
After three weeks at the top of the chart, "Chained to the Rhythm", Katy Perry's latest single drop to #4. Interestingly, the last song to reach three weeks at the top has a much better movement this week, as The Weeknd's "I Feel It Coming" moves up four spots to #12 on it's 15th week charting.
Below top 5, former #1s "Love on the Brain" and "Be The One" rank at #6 and #7 on their 39th and 7th week respectively, while a four spot drop puts "It Ain't Me" at #8, with Kygo's collaboration with Selena Gomez so far reaching as high as #2.
The last two songs inside the top 10 reach or extend major milestones: "Rockabye" actually goes up on it's 17th week as it ranks #9, having never gone below #10, while the second 24K Magic single, "That's What I Like" moves three spots up to #10, becoming the album's first song to go that high. It follows the title track, which served as the album's lead single yet surprisingly peaked at #12. Album track "Versace on the Floor", which is rumored to be a future single, has already spent a few weeks in the bottom half of the chart as well.
Just below, Tove Lo jumps to #11 on "True Disaster"s third chart week, while Calvin Harris takes Frank Ocean and Migos to #16 with "Slide". Look for both tracks to continue moving up along with "Magnets",
Disclosure ft. Lorde - "Magnets" (moves up 40-14 this week)
Dropping this week:
DJ Khaled ft. Beyoncé, JAY Z – “Shining” (#36 Peak, 2 weeks on the chart)
Lady Gaga – “A-YO” (#31 Peak, 7 weeks on the chart)
