The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” (#4) and Fetty Wap’s “679 (#5) complete the Top 5. The latter makes its inaugural appearance in the Top 5.

R. City’s “Locked Away (featuring Adam Levine)” (#6), Silento’s “Watch Me” (#7), Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” (#8), Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” (#9), and Selena Gomez’ “Good For You (featuring A$AP Rocky)” (#10) complete the Top 10.

“Stitches,” which is new to the Top 10 this week, is Mendes’ first career single to reach that portion of the chart.
