After dropping to number eleven last week, and out of the top ten, Selena rebounds two spaces this week.


🚨8) Ariana Grande feat. Nicki Minaj – ‘Side to Side’

This one could be a climber. Well, that’s up to you.


 🚨 7) Fifth Harmony – ‘Write On Me’

5H make a respectable debut with their summery ballad.


🔽6) M.O. – ‘Who Do You Think Of?’

Slipping down three spaces in the face of stiff competition.

🔽 5) Shawn Mendes – ‘Mercy’

After making a massive debut at number one last week Shawn takes a tumble down four places.


🔼 4) Jacob Whitesides – ‘Focus’

Last week’s second highest new entry keeps on climbing, Jacob is up two spots this week. Check out our interview with him!


🔼3) Snakehips feat. Zayn – ‘Cruel’

Zayn’s back up one spot.


🔼 25 Seconds of Summer – ‘Girls Talk Boys’

Up a massive eight places but not quite enough to claim the MP! Top Ten number one, it’s 5SOS!


🔼1)  Little Mix feat. Sean Paul – ‘Hair’

Little Mix fought off some very tough competition from 5SOS, who were ahead for part of the week, but in the end they reclaimed their place at the top. Go girls!
