Drake announces the starting line ups before the NBA All-Star Game as part of 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend on Feb. 14, 2016 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada. 

Drake has done the chart double Down Under. 

The Canadian rapper nails down top spot on Australia’s singles and albums surveys this week with “One Dance” (feat. Wizkid & Kyla) and Views, respectively. “One Dance” rises 5-1 in its fifth week, eclipsing his previous career-peak of No. 2, which “Hotline Bling” reached in Oct. 2015.

“One Dance” (Republic/Universal) also rides the summit of the ARIA Streaming Tracks list, giving Drake a firm grip across the market's three main charts.

Calvin Harris latest collab with Rihanna, “This Is What You Came For” (Columbia/Sony), bows at No. 2 on the ARIA Singles Chart this week. It’s the third collab between the Scottish DJ and the Barbados singer, all of which cracked the Top 10: “We Found Love” reached No. 2 in October 2011 and “Where Have You Been” peaked at No. 6 in May 2012.

The Top 5 is rounded out by Gnash Feat. Olivia O'Brien's “I Hate U, I Love U” (Warner), which drops 2-3; Pink’s “Just Like Fire” (RCA/Sony), which falls 1-4; and The Chainsmokers Feat. Daya’s “Don’t Let Me Down” (Columbia/Sony), down 4-5.

The notable newcomers to this week’s chart include Galantis’ “No Money” (No. 12 via Atlantic/Warner), Desiigner’s “Panda” (No. 16 via Def Jam/Universal) and Beyoncé’sHold Up” (No. 25 via Columbia/Sony).

On the ARIA Albums Chart, Drake earns his first No. 1 with Views, which opens in the top spot. Until Views, Drake’s best effort was a No. 2 peak for his most recent, third studio album Nothing Was The Same from September 2013. Drizzy’s mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late also reached the runner’s up slot in February 2015.
