Lukas Graham advance to #5 this week, shortening the distance with the current #1 by being the best selling song this week.

The top debut is Meghan Trainor’s new single “NO” just outside the top 10, at #11. The song debuts with 113,000 downloads sold. Despite a #2 debut on Digital Songs and a strong first week at radio aided by an iHeartRadio deal upon its debut, the song suffers in the streaming department because no audio or music video has yet been uploaded by Meghan’s team on VEVO.
