'Closer' rules an 11th week on the Global Track Chart although the gap
between 'Closer' and The Weeknd's 'Starboy' is becoming smaller and
smaller. 'Starboy' remains at No. 2 for a sixth week.

Next week Japanese girl Band 乃木坂46 (nogizaka46) is probably going to
replace The Chainsmokers with their new single 'Sayonara No Imi' which
has had a huge debut this week!

'Black Beatles' by American rap duo Rae Sremmurd shoots to no.5 on the
Global Track Chart with the highest debut of the week thanks to the
Mannequin Challenge, a viral internet video trend, where people remain
frozen in action like mannequins while a video is recorded, usually with
tthe song 'Black Beatles' playing in the background. That's why this
tune makes an impressive jump on the charts this week, even though it
was originally released in September 2016!

Arashi's 15th studio album 'Are You Happy?' debuts atop the Global Album
Chart with huge sales of 637,000! Exactly one year ago the band's former
set 'Japonism' debuted at No.1 with 820,000 sales. The most successful
international debut of the week is 'The Stage', the 7th release by
American heavy metal act Avenged Sevenfold. The LP debuts at No. 2 after
shifting 111,000 copies, 72,100 in the US alone, another 9,600 copies in
Canada. Last week's best seller, 'Joanne' by Lady GaGa, slips two slots
to no.3 after selling another 104,000 copies, down 67% sales. The 3rd
highest debut of the week is Twice from South Korea with their new EP
'TwiceCoaster: Lane 1' at no.4 and sales of 102,000. Together with
Arashi at no.1, BTS at no.9, and Ketsumeishi at no.10, there are 4 acts
from Asia in this week's Top 10!

"Closer" scores a 9th week atop the global track chart. It has the
second longest run in 2016 for a Single at No. 1 on the Global chart
after Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop The Feeling" which remained for 10
whole weeks!

"Closer" is currently No. 1 for an 11th week in the US, overtaking
Drake’s 10-week rule in America with “One Dance” to become the
longest-reigning No. 1 in 2016. While an 11-week run at No. 1 in America
is rare, 20 other singles have hit the mark. Mariah Carey and Boyz II
Men’s “One Sweet Day,” released in 1996, is still the longest run (16
weeks) on the Billboard Hot 100's 58 year history!
