Zara Larsson holds on to No.1 in European Border Breakers Chart

Swedish pop star Zara Larsson has hung onto the No.1 spot in this week’s European Border Breakers Chart – but could be dethroned soon by rising UK talent.

Dua Lipa’s debut single, Be The One, has moved 7-4-2 in the last three week’s, and could soon overtake Larsson’s hit Lush Life, which was played in 16 countries over the week.

Also charting highly from the UK is non-mover Sax by Fleur East, which holds on to its No.3 position, while Sigala’s Sweet Lovin’ drops out of the Top 5 to No.6.

New to the Top 20 is Jonas Blues’ Fast Car remix, which is currently No.2 in the UK’s Official Singles Chart, and No.18 in the European Border Breakers Chart, while France’s DJ Snake creeps in at No.20 with Middle feat. Bipolar Sunshine.
