In the singles chart, Despacito, which features Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber and which previously knocked Simon Cowell’s Grenfell Tower charity off the top position, holds on to number one.

The top five is completed by DJ Khaled’s Wild Thoughts featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, French Montana’s Unforgettable featuring Swae Lee, Jonas Blue’s Mama and Liam Payne’s Strip That Down.
