It’s edition #527 of ARIA Chart Watch! It’s the No.1 single and album, your new entries, the new certifications.
It’s also the big movers and shakers and much much more.
So dive in with us and let’s take a look at what’s happening on this week’s ARIA top 100s.
Starting right at the very beginning and it’s Lil Nas X maintaining his lead on the ARIA singles chart, with his No.1 smash ‘Old Town Road’ (featuring vocals from Billy Ray Cyrus) also blasting through the triple platinum barrier this week (that’ll be 210,000 copies to you and us).
Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber maintain their No.2 heading with their track ‘I Don’t Care’, but Ed just misses the top five on debut with the latest track from his ‘No.6’ collaborations album; ‘Cross Me’ (with Chance The Rapper and PnB Rock) premiering at No.6.
Tyler The Creater’s ‘Earfquake’ rumbled into the Aussie countdown last week at No.11 on debut. Seven days on and it’s picked up two positions to now nestle its way into the top ten (No.9).
The boys from 5 Seconds Of Summer have made a splash with their latest single ‘Easier’. It spends its first week on the Aussie countdown in the No.12 position, just ahead of Halsey’s ‘Nightmare’, steady after debuting at No.13 last week.
There’s a new platinum accreditation for the Marshmello single ‘Here With Me’ at No.14 (70,000 unit sales). And Khalid’s ‘Talk’ hits double platinum (140,000 units), despite slipping five positions to No.15.
Young Thug is in at No.17 with ‘The London’.
There’s a spot of platinum love for the Hilltop Hoods single ‘Exit Sign’ (No.17 to No.23) and an 11 place gain for the MeduZa single ‘Piece Of Your Heart’ (No.37 to No.26).
The new OneRepublic single ‘Rescue Me’ debuted at a lowly No.61 this time last week. Fast forward a week, however, and it’s flying high in the top 50, having rocketed 26 places to No.35.
The Sam Smith/Normani single ‘Dancing With A Stranger’ is down 11 to No.40, just ahead of a No.41 debut for Joyner Lucas’s ‘Isis’.
Good news for the Kygo/Rita Ora single ‘Carry On’, which is back inside the ARIA top 50. It’s up from No.52 to No.43, bettering its previous chart peak by two positions.
The Martin Garrix single ‘Summer Days’ (featuring Macklemore and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy fame) is up from No.64 to a new peak of No.49.
The new James Arthur single ‘Falling Like The Stars’, is gaining ground too, improving from No.67 to a new peak of No.52.
Ruel’s ‘Painkiller’ is also up again (No.55 to No.53) and is now staring down the barrel of a top 50 berth. It also matches the chart position of last year’s ‘Dazed & Confused’ as his biggest hit.
DaBaby’s track ‘Suge’ surges; up from a No.91 debut to No.58.
But Lil Dicky’s single comes crashing back down to ‘Earth’, losing its spot in the top 50 and dropping 19 places to No.61.
Tones and I’s ‘Dance Monkey’ is shining brightly in its second week on the ARIA countdown, up from No.85 on debut to No.62.
Another track dropping this week is the Chainsmokers/5SOS single ‘Who Do You Love’, which tumbles 19 places to No.65.
Even bigger is the drop for Tyler The Creator’s ‘I Think’, which plummets 40 places to No.70.
Zhavia Ward and Zayn are in at No.73 with the most recognisable track from the ‘Aladdin’ soundtrack, ‘A Whole New World’.
DJ Khaled’s ‘Jealous’ dives from No.59 to No.76, Fisher’s ‘You Little Beauty’ is down from No.77 to No.86.
A few new entries in the 90s; Kina’s ‘Get You To The Moon’ at No.94, Polo G’s ‘Pop Out’ at No.96 and Kygo’s ‘Not OK’ at No.99.
In amidst it all is a mammoth 47 place drop for DJ Khaled’s ‘Celebrate’ (No.51 to No.98).
Tyler The Creator’s ‘Igor’s Theme’, ‘Running Out Of Time’, ‘New Magic Wand’, ‘A Boy Is A Gun’, ‘What’s Good’, ‘Puppet’ and ‘Gone, Gone/Thank You’ are all gone, gone thank you from the top 100 after debuting last week.
Okay, so follow us here… Last week, Conrad debuted at No.1, P!nk dropped to No.4 and Billie Eilish stayed at No.2.
This week, Billie’s back at No.1, P!nk improves from No.4 to No.2 and Conrad Sewell has dropped to No.3.
Two soundtracks debut in the top ten (they’d be the ‘Aladdin’ soundtrack at No.4 and the ‘Rocketman’ soundtrack at No.6).
Khalid’s ‘Free Spirit’, up one place to No.7, scores a glimmering gold certification, meaning he’s sold more than 35,000 copies of it down under.
With the ‘Rocketman’ movie now in cinemas, Elton John’s best-of ‘Diamonds’ bullets into the top ten, jumping from No.22 to No.8.
Great news for Dean Lewis, with ‘A Place We Knew’ scoring a fresh new gold certification in the No.10 spot.

Elton John’s classic ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ is up from No.63 to No.40.
Middle Kids score a No.44 debut for their latest ‘New Songs For Old Problems’, Logic’s ‘Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind’ is down from No.34 to No.49, the Flying Lotus album ‘Flamagra’ is new at No.55 and, thanks to her promotional visit, Maggie Rogers’ ‘Heard It In A Past Life’ re-enters the top 100 at No.63.
Another sizeable drop; this time for the Vampire Weekend album ‘Father Of The Bride’, which plummets 38 places to No.83.
One more debut this week… and that’s at No.95 for Beast Coast, Joey Bada$$ and Flatbush Zombies (the name of the album is ‘Escape From New York’).
Albums from Alex Lahey and Carly Rae Jepsen, which debuted in the Nos.30 and 33 spots respectively last week, are gone from the top 100.
