The Chainsmokers' and Halsey denied Australian Number 1 by Major Lazer

Closer is now The Chainsmokers' highest-charting entry on the ARIA chart.

The Chainsmokers are the highest new entry on this week's Australian ARIA singles chart with their latest single Closer. 

The US DJ duo debut at Number 2 on the tally, denied the top spot by Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MO's Cold Water, which logs a second week at Number 1. 

Closer is now The Chainsmokers' highest-charting entry on the chart; they’ve previously charted with #Selfie (Number 3 in 2014), Roses (Number 5 in 2016) and Don't Let Me Down (Number 3 in 2016). It's also Halsey's highest spot on the tally following her Number 22-peaking collaboration with Justin Bieber The Feeling.
