Further down, Foo Fighters’ release for Record Store Day, Hail Satin (RCA), charts at #17, and on the 10-year anniversary of her death, Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black (Island) returns to the Top 40 at #36.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles chart, Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” outperformed its closest competitor by more than double, racking up 11.4m streams this week.

The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber’s “Stay” (RCA) jumps three places to #2, while “Heartbreak Anthem” (Atlantic) by Galantis, David Guetta and Little Mix rebounds three places to its previous peak of #3. Jonasu charges seven spots to #4 with summer hit “Black Magic” (3 Beat).
