"Despacito" Enters The History Books As It Returns To Top Of The UK Singles Chart!

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber have returned to Number 1 with Despacito, entering the history books in the process.
The Spanglish track has now topped the Official Singles Chart for ten (non-consecutive) weeks, and today becomes one of only five tracks to have reigned at Number 1 on three different occasions.

Frankie Laine's I Believe (1953), Guy Mitchell's Singing The Blues (1957), Pharrell Williams' Happy (2014) and Justin Bieber's What Do You Mean (2015) are the only other songs to achieve this feat, making Justin Bieber the only artist to have managed it twice.

New entries and high climbers:
Power by Little Mix and Stormzy continues to climb to new heights, up two places to a new peak of Number 6 this week, while Rudimental and James Arthur's collaboration Sun Comes Up rises another six places to Number 10, earning Rudimental their third Top 10 and James his fourth.

This week's highest new entry comes courtesy of Louis Tomlinson, who debuts at Number 13 with Back To You, his collaboration with Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals. There's another brand new release at Number 16 too, as the remix of Enrique Iglesias and Sean Paul's Súbeme La Radio featuring X Factor 2016 winner Matt Terry makes its chart debut.

Finally, two songs reach new peaks inside this week's Top 20; Major Lazer, Travis Scott, Camila Cabello and Quavo's Know No Better jumps two to Number 15, and Dua Lipa's New Rules is the highest climber of the week, zooming 17 slots to Number 19.
