Another ARIA Chart Watch, another week with no change to the No.1 spots on either the ARIA singles or albums charts.
But there’s plenty of action elsewhere, including top ten debuts, big moves and more!
So delve into this week’s ARIA top 100 charts with us in our 547th instalment of ARIA Chart Watch!
There’s still no slowing down Victorian songstress Tones And I.
She’s still shining brightly at No.1 on the ARIA singles chart (for a 12th week, no less) with her mammoth hit ‘Dance Monkey’.
Again, she manages to hold off Post Malone’s ‘Circles’, which is steady at No.2.
But Maroon 5 are making a charge for the top with their latest single ‘Memories’. It continues to find favour with the Australian music-loving public, edging four places higher to a new peak of No.3.
Also on the move this week is Regard’s track ‘Ride It’ (No.11 to No.6), while former One Directioner Harry Styles sees his new solo single ‘Lights Up’ premiere strongly in the No.7 position. It’s only Harry’s second ever top ten single here, following on from his debut solo offering ‘Sign Of The Times’, which hit No.1 back in 2017.
Blackbear’s ‘Hot Girl Bummer’ is also on the improve again, rising another seven places to a new peak of No.10.
Ed Sheeran’s ‘South Of The Border’ is just south of the top ten mark, but gains five places to a new peak of No.13 this week.
Lil Nas X’s former No.1 smash ‘Old Town Road’ is seemingly over and done with, losing eight places to No.18.
Flume hits a new peak (No.19) with ‘Rushing Back’ (up from No.21), while Halsey’s on the improve, up five places to a new peak of No.26 with her latest, ‘Graveyard’.
Camila Cabello hits a new peak of No.31 with ‘Liar’, but Guy Sebastian’s ‘Choir’ loses ground again, dropping seven to No.34.
Freya Ridings’ ‘Castles’ continues to build (No.45 to No.36), the Ariana Grande/Miley Cyrus/Lana Del Rey collaboration ‘Don’t Call Me Angel (Charlie’s Angels)’ loses another nine spots (No.30 to No.39) and Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’ dips another six spots to No.45.
Tones And I is at the top of the top 50 and she’s also at the bottom of the top 50; down ten places to No.50 with ‘Johnny Run Away’.
Beyond the walls of the top 50, we have a big move for the new Juice WRLD single ‘Bandit’. After debuting at No.71 seven days ago, the track’s up 16 places to No.55.
The new Niall Horan single is also on the up this week; ‘Nice To Meet Ya’ bulleting from its No.93 debut to No.60.
Speaking of former One Directioners and debuting, Zayn’s into the countdown at No.62 on debut with ‘Trampoline Shaed’.
It’s just ahead of a No.98 to No.63 bullet for the Zedd and Kehlani collab ‘Good Thing’.
There’s a ten spot drop for OneRepublic’s ‘Rescue Me’ (No.72 to No.82), a No.85 debut for Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Bruises’ (it already comes armed with a gold sales accreditation – 35,000 copies already under its belt) and an 11 place drop for Post Malone’s ‘Enemies’ (No.75 to No.86). Post Malone’s ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ is down 13 to No.90.
Though Post Malone’s single ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ lost a few spots over on the singles chart this week, his album of the same name continues to fly high over on the ARIA albums chart.
It maintains its No.1 heading for a sixth successive week, again holding off Ed Sheeran’s ‘No.6 Collaborations Project’.
Taylor Swift has been bumped out of the No.3 spot by the gang from Hillsong Worship. Their latest album ‘Awake’ is new at No.3, with Taylor down to No.4. Tones And I’s ‘The Kids Are Coming’ EP makes up this week’s top five.
The new best-of by Grinspoon is into the countdown; ‘Chemical Heart’ new at No.9.
There’s a No.18 debut for Babymetal’s ‘Metal Galaxy’ and a nine place improvement for the Lewis Capaldi album ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’ (No.31 to No.22).
Lil Tecca’s ‘We Love You Tecca’ is also up (No.32 to No.25), as is Shawn Mendes’ self-titled album (No.39 to No.29).
88rising score a No.30 debut for their latest long player ‘Head In The Clouds II’.
There’s a ten place drop for DaBaby’s ‘Kirk’ (No.24 to No.34), but a 19 place jump for the Eminem best-of ‘Curtain Call’ (No.55 to No.36). The Cold Chisel best-of is also back inside the top 50 this week (No.51 to No.37). Ditto Hayden James’ ‘Between Us’ (No.54 to No.40) and Angie McMahon’s ‘Salt’ (No.86 to No.44).
Though Tyler The Creator’s album ‘Igor’ re-entered the ARIA top 100 last week at No.15, one week on and it’s on its way back down again in a big way, dropping 30 places to No.45.
Cardi B’s ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ is up from No.63 to No.46 and Lacuna Coil’s ‘Black Anima’ debuts in the No.47 spot.
Not great news for the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds long player ‘Ghosteen’. It debuted strongly at No.7 last week, but finds itself a huge 51 places lower this week at No.58.
Back to back debuts in positions 59 and 60 for Lil Tjay’s ‘True 2 Myself’ and Elbow’s ‘Giants Of All Sizes’ respectively.
But there’s another fall for the new Boy & Bear album ‘Suck On Light’. It debuted at No.7 two weeks back, dropped to No.33 last week and is another 33 places down this week to No.66.
Blink-182’s ‘Nine’ is down from No.50 to No.74, Queen’s ‘The Platinum Collection’ is down 18 to No.84 and Big Thief scrapes into the top 100 on debut with their ‘Two Hands’ (No.99).
There are seven albums that debuted in the top 50 last week that are gone from the top 100 entirely this week. They are (last week’s position in brackets);
City And Colour : ‘A Pill For Loneliness’ (No.8)
The Darkness : ‘Easter Is Cancelled’ (No.22)
