Lukas Graham, Mike Posner scale this week's US Billboard Hot 100

Plus Meghan Trainor scores this week's highest new entry.

It looks like Lukas Graham and Mike Posner's chart battle in the UK is spreading further afield as the two ascend the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States.

Current UK Number 1 7 Years climbs from 9 to 5 Stateside, and was officially the biggest selling track on the chart last week. The song - which is the longest consecutive reigning UK Number 1 since Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' Uptown Funk - was kept from scaling higher due to other factors such as radio airplay and streaming figures.

Posner's I Took A Pill In Ibiza moved into the US' top flight for the first time, jumping up four places to Number 10. The SeeB remix of the song marks Mike's second Top 10 entry, six years after Cooler Than Me reached Number 6.

The top spot was occupied once again by Rihanna and Drake; their song Work made it four weeks at the helm of the Hot 100. Justin Bieber is stationary at 2 with Love Yourself, as are Twenty One Pilots who stay put at 3. Flo Rida's My House also stands still at 4.

Elsewhere, Meghan Trainor's new track No debuted just outside the Top 10 at Number 11.

Over on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, Kendrick Lamar's surprise release Untitled Umastered knocked The 1975 from off the top spot, while rapper 2 Chainz scored his third Top 10 album with Collegrove at Number 4.
