• Singles: “Despacito” again #1, Imagine Dragons and Calvin Harris new to top 10
• Albums: You guessed it – Ed Sheehan in charge, Stone Sour close to chart upset
There is no surprise there is no surprise at the top of the chart as Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee continue their world domination with a little bit of help from Justin Bieber.
A possible challenger for top spot is Niall Horan who went close this week with “Slow Hands” up from #9 to #2 in his ninth week on the chart. It has been a slow and steady climb toward the top, and this week it hits another chart peak.
A top 10 newcomer is Imagine Dragons who have taken their time too making a run at the top. “Thunder” enters the top 10 at #6 for a new peak after 10 weeks on the chart.
Also new to the top 10 is the very catchy “Feels” from Calvin Harris with a superstar vocal club that includes Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean. The single has been moving at a relatively quick pace up the charts – bouncing from #26 to #9 in its third week.
Not a lot of excitement when it comes to new releases cracking the top 50.
#19 The winner of The Voice Judah Kelly with “Count On Me”
#35 The Voice runner-up Hoseah Partsch with “Paper Planes”
Ed Sheeran remains at #1 – a spot he has held except for two brief periods since “Divide” was released in the first week of March.
Two albums have hit the top 10 on debut this week:
#2 American rockers Stone Sour with “Hydrograd”
#5 Calvin Harris with “Funk Wav Bounces Vol 1”
Hillsong United and Kendrick Lamar have both re-entered the top 10.
Just one other new release inside the top 50 on what is a very quiet week – Superfruit with “Future Friends – Part One”
