Cold Water is Number 1 single for a fifth week

The Official Singles Chart is once again drenched in Cold Water this week, as Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MØ hang on to Number 1 for a fifth consecutive week.

It’s been a closely run race all week between Cold Water and DJ Snake’s Let Me Love You, which also features Justin Bieber. Cold Water shifted just over 71,500 combined chart sales, meaning DJ Snake couldn’t charm his way to the top, finishing 1,469 behind to spend a third straight week at Number 2.

Major Lazer’s Cold Water drowns out the competition when it comes to streaming too – it’s notched up 5.03 million plays to be the most listened to track of the week.

The Chainsmokers edge up one place to 3 with Closer, featuring Halsey, and Calum Scott’s cover of Robyn’s Dancing On My Own drops one to 4, while Twenty One Pilots’ Heathens hits a new chart high, rising two to 5.

It’s a new chart peak for Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez’s We Don’t Talk Anymore, which leaps nine places to break into the Top 20 for the first time, at 14. Anne-Marie’s Alarm has also gone Top 20, up five to 19.

Highest brand new entry this week belongs to Ellie Goulding, with Still Falling For You, from the latest Bridget Jones movie, going in at 25, and Craig David & Sigala are also new at 29 with Ain’t Giving Up.

Two tracks break into the Top 40 for the very first time this week: a remix of Is This Love, from Bob Marley feat. Lvndscape and Bolier, is up 3 to 39, while Cheat Codes & Dante Klein rocket 37 slots with Let Me Hold You (Turn Me On) up to 40.
