Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber return to Number 1 with Despacito

Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber have reclaimed pole position on this week’s Official Singles
Chart with Despacito.

The bilingual track now enjoys a seventh non-consecutive week at Number 1 after it achieved 34,000 downloads and 7.5 million streams. The track wasn’t the most downloaded of the week however – that honour goes to Artists for Grenfell’s Bridge Over Troubled Water.

The benefit single released in aid of the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire, slips to Number 3 this week but leads on downloads with another 53,000 sold, as well as 2 million streams.

DJ Khaled’s Wild Thoughts, the Santana-sampling single that features Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, hops one place to Number 2, a new peak position for the song. Jonas Blue’s Mama also rises to a new peak in the Top 5, up one to Number 5.

New entries and high climbers

Little Mix and Rita Ora both enjoy uplifts this week, as Power and Your Song reach new personal bests of Number 9 and 10 respectively. The latter enters the Top 10 for the first time and becomes Rita’s ninth Top 10 hit.

Another three songs reach new peaks inside this week’s Top 20; Maggie Lindemann’s Pretty Girl is boosted to Number 12, there’s a two-place climb for Camila Cabello’s Crying In The Club (18), and Sigala’s collaboration with Ella Eyre, Came Here For Love, lifts three spots to Number 19.

Elsewhere, Drake’s new track Signs – released as part of a Louis Vuitton campaign – is new at Number 22, and Imagine Dragons’ Thunder is the biggest gainer inside the Top 40, up 10 to Number 26 following the release of their third album Evolve.

Finally, charity single Smile For Bradley performed by LIV’n’G becomes the duo’s first ever UK Top 40 single at Number 28. Proceeds from the song’s release will go directly to the Bradley Lowery Foundation, set up in honour of terminally ill six-year-old Bradley Lowery.
