Harry Styles makes it four weeks at ARIA Singles Chart #1 with As It Was

‘As It Was’ by Harry Styles holds #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for a fourth week. It comes a week out from the release of the British star’s third album, Harry’s House. This week Canadian band Arcade Fire performed a version of the track in their live session for BBC 6 Music.

A week on from debuting at #12, Lizzo jumps up nine spots to hit #3 with ‘About Damn Time’. The first single from the American singer-songwriter/rapper’s fourth album, Special, becomes her highest chart peak, taking over from ‘Good As Hell’ (#6 Nov. ’19).

Future’s ‘Wait For U’ moves up three spots to #12 in its second week on the chart. The track, which features Canadian star Drake and Nigerian singer Tems, is the current US #1 – giving Future his second chart-topper.

On top of scoring the #2 album this week with Come Home The Kids Miss You, American rapper Jack Harlow grabs two debuts in the Singles Chart Top 50, with his tribute to Dua Lipa sitting highest at #13. Harlow’s collaboration with Drake, ‘Churchill Downs’, debuts at #17. Former #1 ‘First Class’ is at #2, while previous single ‘Nail Tech’ re-enters at #38.

In its second week in the chart, Leah Kate’s ’10 Thing I Hate About You’ moves up 16 spots to hit a new peak at #22.

Taylor Swift debuts at #23 with her latest re-recording, ‘This Love (Taylor's Version)’. It’s a new version of the track that first appeared on 1989 (#1 Nov. ’14) and becomes the 17th re-recorded track by the American singer-songwriter to appear in the ARIA Top 50.

American rapper Kendrick Lamar takes out his first new entry in the ARIA Singles Chart in four years, debuting at #31 with ‘The Heart Part 5’. The fifth installment in Lamar’s ‘The Heart’ song series was released last week as a teaser for his fifth album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, which dropped on 13 May. The song doesn’t appear on the album. Lamar last charted with ‘Pray For Me’ (#9 Mar. ’18), a collaboration with The Weeknd.

Debuting at #35, Lady Gaga scores her first new entry in the Top 50 since 2020 with ‘Hold My Hand’. The new release is the lead single from the soundtrack to Top Gun: Maverick. The American star last hit the chart with ‘Sour Candy’ (#8 Jun. ’20), a collaboration with Blackpink.

‘Iris’, the 1998 hit from American band the Goo Goo Dolls, returns to the Singles Chart at #45. The single’s resurgence comes following a trend on TikTok featuring a part of the song sung by creator Joshua Johnson.
