American EDM duo The Chainsmokers and featured singer Halsey both topped the chart for the first time with "Closer", spending nine consecutive weeks at number-one, making it the longest-topping single of the year and since 2014's "Que Sera".[1]
Lukas Graham's first number-one single, "7 Years", topped the chart for eight consecutive weeks, overtaking Aqua's "Doctor Jones" to become the longest topping single by a Danish group.[2]
After his cover of "Impossible" reached No. 2 in 2012, British singer and X Factor winner James Arthur's first number-one single, "Say You Won't Let Go", spent seven consecutive weeks at the top of the chart.[3]
Following on from his No. 2 single "Hotline Bling" in 2015, Canadian hip hop artist Drake earned his first number-one single, as did featured artists Wizkid and Kyla, topping the chart for seven weeks with "One Dance".[4]

The ARIA Singles Chart ranks the best-performing singles in Australia.
