Fresh from representing The Netherlands at Eurovision earlier this month with Slow Down, Douwe Bob also recently released his new album, Fool Bar, and from that is the gorgeous ballad Jacob's Song, which would have almost made for a more interesting entry, apart from the fact that it's more than five minutes long. Every minute is a stunner though, this track sounds like an instant classic.

Following last year's spectacular Wings, the brilliant Delta Goodrem returns with another great single, the beautiful and relateable string-laden ballad Dear Life, which has given the Australian star yet another top three hit in her home country. 

Dance entries this month come from Calvin Harris and Rihanna, with their latest excellent collaboration This Is What You Came For, Sigma and Take That with their unexpected but catchy new single Cry, Kungs & Cookin' On 3 Burners with their huge international house hit This Girl, The Flavor with the infectious tribal dance of Shosholoza, which harks back to the uplifting sounds of Dario G's Sunchyme and Colour The World by Sash!

Ukraine's Jamala took home the Eurovision trophy with the politically charged 1944. Despite topping neither the public vote or the jury vote, Ukraine were the most consistent overall and won with the Eastern meets trip-hop inspired track. And from one of the best albums of the year, Hold Up seems to be one of the most popular songs from Beyoncé's Lemonade, and it's not difficult to see why, it's rather excellent with an effective sample. And Craig David returns with One More Time, his third UK garage throwback in little under six months.

Elsewhere in the top 20 are strong new singles from Justin Timberlake, Pink, Pet Shop Boys, Salt Ashes, Dua Lipa and Ariana Grande as well as Drake's huge smash One Dance, DNCE's catchy Maroon 5-esque hit Cake By The Ocean, Albanian singer Era Istrefi's European hit Bonbon, Måns Zelmerlöw's latest single, Fire In The Rain, and Austrian singer Christina Stürmer's ballad Seite An Seite.
