Debuts for Katy Perry, Sam Feldt and more!
Tones And I maintains her hold on the #1 spot on the ARIA Singles Chart for 13th consecutive week with ‘Dance Monkey’. The track joins ‘Old Town Road’ by Lil Nas X (2019), ‘Despacito’ by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee (2017) and ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ by Coolio (1995/1996) at equal second in the list of most weeks spent at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. ‘Dance Monkey’ only trails Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You (2017), which was #1 for 15 weeks.
Tones And I has a second Top Ten single this week, ‘Never Seen The Rain’ jumping eleven spots to #10. Only two Australian artists have had two singles in the Top Ten in the same week in the last decade: Harrison Craig in June 2013 and Karise Eden in June 2012. Before that, Savage Garden also achieved the feat in June 1997. She takes out #1 and #2 in the Australian Artists Singles Chart.
Claiming a second week in the Top Ten, Regard’s remix of Jay Sean’s ‘Ride It’ moves up two spots to hit another new peak at #4. In the UK, it’s so far peaked at #2, being held off the top spot by Tones And I’s ‘Dance Monkey’.
blackbear’s ‘Hot Girl Bummer’ jumps two to snare a new peak at #8. Originally thought to be a play on Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Hot Girl Summer’, blackbear has stated that the song was written about the hashtag trend #hotgirlsummer.
As it hits its 15th week in the Top 50, Ed Sheeran’s ‘South Of The Border’ claims a new peak at #12. The track originally debuted at #14 back in July.
After two weeks at #14, Lizzo’s ‘Good As Hell’ moves up one spot to #13, hitting a new peak. A new version of the track featuring Ariana Grande was released this week and could take it even higher up the chart.
#36: Katy Perry ‘Harleys In Hawaii’ – Katy Perry picks up her third Top 50 entry for 2019 with ‘Harleys In Hawaii’. The American pop star charted earlier in the year with ‘Never Really Over’ (#7 Jun. ’19) and ‘Small Talk’ (#33 Aug. ’19).
#45: Sam Feldt Feat. RANI ‘Post Malone’ – Dutch DJ/producer Sam Feldt makes his first appearance on the chart since 2015 with ‘Post Malone’. Written as an ode to the American rapper, ‘Post Malone’ marks Feldt’s return to the chart for the first time since ‘Show Me Love’ (#19 Aug. ’15).
#47: SHAED & Zayn ‘Trampoline’ – American pop trio SHAED make their ARIA Top 50 debut with the track ‘Trampoline’. The group (pronounced “shade”) originally released the track in May 2018, before releasing a remix with ex-One Direction member Zayn in September of this year.
#48: Juice WRLD, YoungBoy Never Broke Again ‘Bandit’ – American rappers Juice WRLD and YoungBoy Never Broke Again team up for the track ‘Bandit’. The single is set to be included on Juice WRLD’s forthcoming third album. It’s his second chart entry for 2019 after ‘Robbery’ (#41 Mar. ’19).
