Brit Sweep: June 10, 2017...

It's time to cross the Atlantic once again to check out the notable songs and albums making the official charts in the UK this week...

On the British singles chart, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber spend a fifth straight week at the top with "Despacito"...

The top debut of the week doesn't appear until down at #47, as Fifth Harmony are back with their first single as a four-piece on "Down" featuring rapper Gucci Mane...

Put together just like Fifth Harmony are the third place finalists in the 13th season of the X Factor UK, 5 After Midnight, who land at #51 with "Up In Here"...


American soul singer Andra Day shines in at #61 with "Rise Up"...


The Foo Fighters are back with a brand new track, "Run", which struts in at #64...
