As It Was gives Harry Styles second ARIA #1 single

British pop superstar Harry Styles claims his second solo #1 single on the ARIA Charts with ‘As It Was’. The track is the first to come from Styles’ forthcoming third album, Harry’s House, set for release on 20 May. It’s the singer-songwriter’s first new entry on the chart since ‘Falling’ (#35 Dec. ’19) and ‘Golden’ (#39 Nov. ’20) hit the chart in the same week in December 2019. Harry Styles’ first hit #1 with his debut solo single ‘Sign Of The Times’ (#1 Apr. ’17). His previous single ‘Watermelon Sugar’ (#5 Jul. ’20) has re-entered the chart at #44.

A week on from its debut, American rapper Latto has jumped 22 spots to hit #13 with ‘Big Energy’. Last week, the track hit #3 in the US thanks to the release of a remix featuring Mariah Carey and DJ Khaled.

Ahead of the release of her third album, Familia, Camila Cabello has moved to a new peak at #14 with ‘Bam Bam’.

Debuting at #22 with ‘When You’re Gone’, Shawn Mendes hit the Singles Chart for the first time since 2020. The Canadian artist debuted the song in a live show at this year’s South By Southwest in Austin, Texas. His last appearance on the chart was with the Justin Bieber collaboration ‘Monster’ (#7 Nov. ’20).

American rapper Lil Tjay takes out his second ARIA Top 50 entry, debuting at #27 with ‘In My Head’. The new track comes just over a year on from ‘Calling My Phone’ (#3 Feb. ’21), which not only gave him a Top Three entry in Australia, but also in the US, UK, New Zealand, and a #1 in Canada.

ARIA Award-winning singer-songwriter Dean Lewis picks up his first chart entry for 2022 with ‘Hurtless’. Lewis last charted with ‘Falling Up’ (#48 Jun. ’21), which was nominated for Song Of The Year at the 2021 ARIA Awards.
