After 16 weeks in the chart, Duke Dumont’s certified banger and slow burner of a hit Ocean Drive finally makes it to #1, his first ever on the TMN Hot 100. The move forces Adele’s Hello down to #2 from #1 while giving room to Justin Bieber’s Sorry,which now sits at a new peak of #3 up from #4.

Bieber’s other new single Love Yourself takes a new high point at #5 up from #11, marking the first new entry into the Top 10. DJ Snake’s Middle featuring Bipolar Sunshine makes the second high point at #7 up from #21 followed by Rudimental’sLay It On Me featuring Ed Sheeran at #10 from #12.
