Major Lazer’s “Cold Water” (Mad Decent/Warner) continues to rain down on Australia’s singles chart. 

The track, which features Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber and Danish artist , becomes Major Lazer’s longest run in the top spot of the ARIA Singles Chart at two weeks, eclipsing the lone week "Lean On" spent at the summit in April 2015. “Cold Water” is also the leader on the ARIA Streaming Tracks chart. 

The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey’s "Closer" (Columbia/Sony) is the highest new entry on the national singles chart this week at No. 2. "Closer" is the American EDM duo’s highest peak of its four charting tracks to date in Australia, following “#SELFIE” (No. 3 in April 2014), “Roses” (No. 5 in February 2016) and “Don't Let Me Down” (No. 3 in April 2016).

The notable risers on this week’s survey include Usher’s “Crash” (RCA/Sony), which improves 17-10 to give the R&B singer his 14th top ten on the ARIA Singles Chart, while Jonas Blue’s “Perfect Strangers” (Virgin/EMI) leaps 42-11 and Kenny Chesney feat. Pink’s “Setting The World On Fire” (Sony) debuts at No. 26. It's Chesney’s first entry on the ARIA Singles Chart.
