Last week, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito (featuring Justin Bieber)” ceded the Official UK Singles Chart throne to DJ Khaled’s “Wild Thoughts (featuring Rihanna & Bryson Tiller).”

It marked the second time the song’s reign had been interrupted. It had previously been overtaken by Artists For Grenfell’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

This week, “Despacito” returns to the top spot.

The global smash tallies a tenth non-consecutive week at #1 on the listing.

“Wild Thoughts” falls to #2 on this week’s chart, while French Montana’s “Unforgettable (featuring Swae Lee)” holds at #3. Calvin Harris’ “Feels (featuring Pharrell, Katy Perry & Big Sean)” and Jonas Blue’s “Mama (featuring William Singe)” (#5) are also stationary this week.

Other notables inside the Top 40:
