Fifth week at #1 on ARIA Singles Chart for The Kid Laroi’s Stay

The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber’s collaboration ‘Stay’ notches up its fifth week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. This week, the single hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the first US chart-topper by an Australian male solo artist since Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ in 2012.

The title track from Billie Eilish’s chart-topping second album climbs up three spots to hit #3 in its second week on the chart. ‘Happier Than Ever’ becomes the third single from the album to peak at #3 after ‘My Future’ (#3 Aug. ’20) and ‘Therefore I Am’ (#3 Nov. ’20).

The Weeknd scores his tenth Top Ten on the ARIA Singles Chart as he debuts at #9 with ‘Take My Breath’. It’s the first single released from the Canadian artist’s fifth studio album, the follow-up to After Hours (#1 Mar. ’20). It becomes The Weeknd’s second Top Ten for 2021 after ‘Save Your Tears’ (#3 Jun. ’21)

Climbing up seven spots, Doja Cat’s ‘Need To Know’ hits #10. It becomes the American artist’s third Top Ten after ‘Say So’ (#4 Mar. ’20) and ‘Kiss Me More’ (#2 May ’21), which sits at #7 this week.

In their second week in the chart, Jolyon Petch’s ‘Dreams’ moves up five to #23 and Shouse’s ‘Love Tonight’ moves up ten to #39.

British rapper KSI scores his second career Top 50 entry with ‘Lose’. Like ‘Holiday’ (#24 Jun. ’21), the Lil Wayne-featured track comes from KSI’s second album, All Over the Place (#6 Jul. ’21).
