Sia fends off Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MO's Cold Water on US Billboard singles chart

Cold Water hasn't drenched Cheap Thrills just yet.

She doesn't need dollar bills, but Sia may need a towel to wipe off a splash of Cold Water.

Cheap Thrills, Sia's first US Number 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 has held on to the crown for a second week, but has major competition at this week's Number 2 from Major Lazer, MØ and Justin Bieber and their new track Cold Water.

Entering at Number 2 gives Major Lazer and MØ their highest US chart position, beating their former collab Lean On, which peaked at Number 4. Although it had to settle for second best this week, the track was the most purchased of the week with 169,000 downloads. The song just misses out on the top spot due to other factors such as streaming figures and airplay.

Cold Water marks the third time that Justin has entered the chart in the runner-up slot, a new record edging him ahead of Mariah Carey. Mariah still holds the record for most Top 2 entries however with five, while Justin is on four. One more mega hit and a debut at Number 1 or 2 and Justin will match the legendary chanteuse.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, the only song not to stay in the same position or drop is Adele's Send My Love (To Your New Lover) which rises one spot to hit a new peak of 9.

Over on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Drake logs a 12th non-consecutive week at Number 1, the most weeks for a studio album since Adele's 21 managed 24 weeks at the helm across 2011 and 2012.

Rapper Gucci Mane debuts at Number 2 with Everybody Lucky and is the seventh album to have a journey to Number 1 thwarted by Drizzy. Others include Red Hot Chili Peppers' album The Getaway and Nick Jonas' Last Year Was Complicated.

Well, that's in the United States, a republic that doesn't recognize the Queen. So, who cares? Of much greater interest to Britons should be the Canadian and Australian charts. On both, "Cold Water" debuted at number one.

Eh, thought CW would actually do it this week. Then again it's rare for a song to be #1 for only 1 week in the 100, especially nowadays
