The Chainsmokers’ “Closer (featuring Halsey)” unsurprisingly retains its throne on the ARIA Australian Top 50 singles chart.

This marks a sixth straight week at #1 for the international smash, which is double platinum in the Land Down Under.

While this week’s chart features the same #1 as last week, it does include some major movement.

Up twenty three places, Sia’s “The Greatest (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” moves into the #2 position. Ariana Grande’s “Side To Side (featuring Nicki Minaj)” meanwhile enjoys a two-place lift to #5.

Calum Scott’s “Dancing On My Own” and twenty one pilots’ “Heathens” stay in between the two, again grabbing #3 and #4, respectively.

This week’s top (and only) debut comes from Lady Gaga’s “Perfect Illusion,” which joins the chart at #14.
