On the charts: Week ending 07/22

This week’s top 10 songs and albums on the Billboard charts (08/06 issue).

Hot 100
01. (03) Sia – “Cheap Thrills” ft. Sean Paul
02. (01) Drake – “One Dance” ft. Wizkid & Kyla
03. (04) Calvin Harris – “This Is What You Came For” ft. Rihanna

09. (08) Desiigner – “Panda”
10. (10) Adele – “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)”

“Cheap Thrills” becomes Sia’s first #1 hit this week. At 40 years old the singer and songwriter achieves something that few other females in that age bracket have been able to grasp. The song is also Sean Paul’s first Hot 100 #1 in 10 years, since his own “Temperature” rose to the top in 2006.

Two debuts make noise in the top 20 this week: one is Katy Perry’s Olympic soundtrack “Rise” at #11 (137,000 downloads sold), while the other is Britney Spears’ “Make Me” (feat. G-Eazy) which debuts at #17 with 96,000 downloads sold. Both tracks were released last week as standalone singles, with no album in sight at least for now.
