CHART WATCH:

Sia's dancehall record, Cheat Thrills remix, which features dancehall artiste Sean Paul, has fallen on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week after peaking at No.81 last week.

The song has only spent two weeks on the chart and has already declined in sales, perhaps due to the absence of a music video. The lyric video uploaded on Sia's YouTube Vevo account, currently has over eight million views. Ironically, the original version of the song without Sean Paul has had over 10 million views, but that version has not seen similar chart success.

Dancehall still reigns supreme on the Billboard Hot 100 this week courtesy Rihanna's Work, featuring Drake, while dancehall artiste Assassin debuted at No.3 on the Billboard Reggae Chart with his reggae album titled, The Theory of Reggaetivity.

Interestingly, Jah Cure's album, The Cure, fell to No.10 this week, its lowest position since its release in 2015. Grammy-winning band Morgan Heritage, however, held their place at No.6, seemingly still benefiting from the fanfare associated with their Grammy win.
