Edition #541 of ARIA Chart Watch is here. And one week on from her dominance of the ARIA singles and albums charts, how has Taylor Swift fared?
Will she still hold the No.1 album in the country? Where have the tracks from ‘Lover’ landed seven days on?
Who’s debuted? Who’s got the big moves? And who’s bagged new certifications?
The answers to your questions are below in this week’s ARIA Chart Watch.
It’s another week in the No.1 spot for Tone And I, whose single ‘Dance Monkey’ holds in pole position for a sixth week.
And it’s another week in the No.2 spot for Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello and their single ‘Señorita’.
Lil Nas X and Ed Sheeran with Khalid are in positions three and four respectively, before a big No.5 debut for Post Malone’s latest track ‘Circles’. That’s an equal peak with its predecessor ‘Goodbyes’, which landed back in July.
The first new accreditation for the week lobs at No.7. Marshmello and Kane Brown’s collaboration ‘One Thing Right’ splashing into platinum territory, having sold in excess of 70,000 units in Australia.
The title track to Taylor Swift’s new album ‘Lover’ is down five spots to No.8.
There’s another new certification in position 12. That’s a fresh double platinum award (140,000 unit sales) for the MeduZa/Goodboys track ‘Piece Of Your Heart’.
Miley Cyrus’s ‘Slide Away’ gains three (No.18 to No.15) and the boys from 5SOS get their ‘Teeth’ stuck into the ARIA top 20; the single bulleting 13 places to No.17 in its second week.
She’s dominating the ARIA chart further up, but Tones And I’s ‘Never Seen The Rain’ is doing pretty well for itself too. Not only does it edge three places higher to No.22 this week (just one shy of its No.21 peak thus far), it also bags itself a gold accreditation, after selling more than 35,000 units.
Normani continues to climb with ‘Motivation’. It’s another seven places higher this week at a new No.28 peak.
There’s a 13 place slide for Taylor Swift’s ‘The Man’ (No.17 to No.30). But heading in the opposite direction (and how!) is Lizzo’s ‘Good As Hell’. The single had never been higher than No.86 previously, but that mark has been smashed out of the park this week, thanks to a huge 54 place jump to No.32.
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s ‘Shallow’ is also up again (No.43 to No.34), but Taylor Swift’s ‘Cruel Summer’ dips 13 to No.35.
Ed Sheeran and Camila Cabello’s ‘South Of The Border’ is now north of the top 50 divide. With most of Taylor Swift’s tracks taking big tumbles this week, Ed’s improves 11 to No.39.
Benny Blanco’s ‘Eastside’, which dropped from No.42 to No.58 last week, is back up to No.41.
Khalid’s ‘Right Back’, which dropped from No.41 last week to No.51, is back up to No.42.
Bazzi’s ‘I.F.L.Y’ jumps ten (to No.45), as does OneRepublic’s ‘Rescue Me’ (No.56 to No.46).
And Jonas Brothers’ ‘Only Human’ makes it into the top 50 for the first time, jumping from No.63 to No.49.
The first of the big falls from Taylor Swift appears just outside the top 50. ‘I Forgot That You Existed’ is way down from its No.24 debut to No.52.
Conversely, Travis Scott and Drake’s ‘Sicko Mode’ rockets from No.91 to No.54.
Post Malone’s ‘Wow’ is up 13 to No.55 and 5SOS’s ‘Youngblood’ also climbs 13 (to No.58).
But Taylor Swift’s ‘Paper Rings’ plunges 30 places to No.59.
The week’s second highest debut comes all the way down in the No.60 position. That’s A$AP Rocky’s latest ‘Babushka Boi’.
Sam Feldt’s ‘Post Malone’ is also on the up. It gains an impressive 23 places to reach a new peak of No.64.
The Tones And I hits keep coming; ‘The Kids Are Coming’ is new into the countdown at No.65.
But the Taylor Swift drops also keep coming. ‘Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince’ losing massive ground, dropping 35 positions from last week’s No.32 debut. And ‘The Archer’ missing its target, slumping 34 positions to No.70.
‘I Think He Knows’ also tumbling; down 37 spots to No.71.
Tool’s ‘Pneuma’ is new at No.78. Tones And I scores another top 100 debut with ‘Jimmy’ at No.79. And Taylor Swift’s ‘Cornelia Street’ plunges 43 places to No.83.
Another big drop for Taylor, with ‘London Boy’ slumping 45 places to No.87.
Tool’s ‘Invincible’ is new at No.89 and Taylor’s ‘Death By A Thousand Cuts’ is seemingly spending its final week inside the ARIA top 100, plunging from No.48 to No.95.
Lots of big drops for Taylor Swift over on the singles charts, but surely Taylor Swift could hold on for a second week at No.1 on the ARIA albums chart right?
US rock outfit Tool this week claims their third successive No.1 album in Australia with ‘Fear Inoculum’, their first album in 13 long years.
The debut is so big that it knocks Taylor Swift’s new album ‘Lover’ from the top spot after just one week.
Though Taylor’s only down to No.2 AND the album does notch up an impressive gold sales certification (35,000 units) after just one week.
There’s plenty of newness elsewhere in the top five, with Tones And I’s ‘The Kids Are Coming’ EP premiering at No.3 and the new Lana Del Rey album ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell!’ debuting in the No.4 spot.
Ed Sheeran’s ‘No.6 Collaborations Project’ completes this week’s top five.
Then there’s another new entry, this time for local star G Flip and her debut album ‘About Us’. It premieres at No.6.
Plenty of movement just outside the top ten too.
Travis Scott’s ‘Astroworld’ bullets from No.44 to No.12, the Lil Tecca album ‘We Love You Tecca’ is new at No.13 and Bon Iver’s ‘I,I’ re-enters the ARIA top 100 at No.14.
A little further down, Montaigne’s ‘Complex’ premieres at No.19. There’s a No.3 to No.20 drop for Brockhampton’s ‘Ginger’. And DZ Deathrays claim the No.21 spot on debut for ‘Positive Rising : Part 1’.
Further down still and there’s an 18 place drop for the soundtrack to ‘The Lion King’ (No.17 to No.35), but a No.53 to No.37 jump for the soundtrack to ‘Rocketman’.
Ash Grunwald gets his ‘Mojo’ stuck into the No.40 spot on debut, but the soundtrack to ‘Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ tumbles 20 positions to No.41.
Paul Kelly and James Ledger introduce ‘Thirteen Ways To Look At Birds’ to the No.43 position. Taylor Swift’s previous album ‘Reputation’ is down 16 to No.46 and albums from Jimmy Barnes and Lizzo poke their heads back inside the ARIA top 50.
Beyond the walls of the top 50, Young Thug’s ‘So Much Fun’ stumbles from its No.36 debut to No.59.
The soundtrack to ‘Palm Beach’ is also on the slide, dropping from No.47 to No.66.
Wage War’s ‘Pressure’ premieres at No.67. And that’s right ahead of a big 33 place second week fall for the Dan Mullins album ‘Duende’.
There’s a No.73 debut for the new Sheryl Crow album ‘Threads’.
But the big drops keep coming; Killswitch Engage’s ‘Atonement’ down a massive 45 places to No.74 and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s ‘Infest The Rats’ Nest’ down a mammoth 51 places to No.76.
Conrad Sewell’s ‘Life’ is also on its way down, tumbling 31 places to No.97.
But there were much bigger falls. Knocker Loose, for example, saw their album ‘A Different Shade Of Blue’ debut at No.49 last week. It’s dropped more than 51 places and is now gone from the top 100.
Winterbourne’s ‘Echo Of Youth’ debuted last week at No.24. It’s dropped more than 76 spots.
