Bops and Flops: From Ariana’s ‘Into You’ to Drake’s ‘One Dance’ refusing to move

It’s time for some more chart analysis! Don’t worry though, we’ve studied the charts so you don’t have to.


Here are the big bops and flops from this week’s chart:


?? Drake is still at Number 1 and it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere anytime soon.

?? The Top 10 is almost identical to last week, but Sigala, Nile Rogers and John Newman have knocked ‘Sex’ by Cheat Codes and Kriss Kross out of the Top 10.

?? Adele’s ‘Send My Love (To Your New Lover)’ is up to 15 this week. It should go Top 10 next week after her amazing performance at Glastonbury.

?? Bastille’s new song ‘Good Grief’ has entered at 25. We love this track and reckon it’ll be huge over summer.

?? ‘INTO YOU’ HAS A NEW PEAK. It looked like this was going to flop massively for a while but it’s up to 26. Let’s get it up 25 places, though.


?? Considering the charts haven’t really moved at all this week, it’s a shame ‘Hair’ by Little Mix has fallen to 29, which is the lowest it has been since April.

?? ‘Sorry’ by Justin Bieber looks set to fall out of the Top 40 for the first time next week, with it currently sat at 40.

?? While we’re on the topic of Bieber, ‘Love Yourself’ is out of the Top 40.

?? After climbing to a new peak of 48 last week, Kiiara’s ‘Gold’ falls to 56. Which is annoying because it’s really great.

?? Meghan Trainor’s ‘Me Too’ has made it’s debut this week (at 96).
