“Can’t Stop The Feeling,” which had spent four straight (and seven total) weeks at #1, drops to #2. It received ~7,100 spins during the July 31-August 6 tracking period (-37).

P!nk’s “Just Like Fire” holds at #3 with ~6,827 spins (-106), while Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” (#4, = | ~6,679, +361) and twenty one pilots’ “Ride” (#5, = | ~5,453, +488) again complete the Top 5.
