Heat Waves gives Glass Animals eleven weeks at ARIA #1

Glass Animals’ ‘Heat Waves’ hits eleven weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The British band’s single joins Bryan Adams’ ’Everything I Do (I Do It For You)’ (#1 Jul. ’91), Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe’ (#1 Nov. ‘96), Drake’s ‘God’s Plan’ (#1 Feb. ’18), The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ (#1 Jan. ’20) and 24kGoldn’s ‘Mood’ (#1 Oct. ’20) as eleven week chart-toppers.

German groups AnnenMayKantereit and Giant Rooks make their ARIA Charts debut at #18 with their cover of Suzanne Vega’s ‘Tom's Diner’. First released in 2019, the track has recently gone viral via TikTok, where it’s reached 10 million views. First released by Vega in 1987, ‘Tom’s Diner’ hit #8 in November 1990 thanks to a remix by British duo DNA.

A week on from debuting at #40, ‘Let’s Trot!’ by drill duo Brothers and Melbourne DJ/producer Joel Fletcher climbs 14 spots to hit #26.

The Foo Fighters’ 1997 single ‘Everlong’ has re-entered the Singles Chart at #28 this week after the sudden death of drummer Taylor Hawkins. Released as the second single from The Colour And The Shape (#5 Jun. ’97), ‘Everlong’ originally peaked at #45 in August 1997.

American rapper Latto makes her ARIA Singles Chart debut at #35 with ‘Big Energy’. First released in September 2021, the track has hit the chart following the drop of a remix featuring Mariah Carey and DJ Khaled. To date, the track has peaked at #11 in the US.

Canadian artist Tate McRae scores her second new entry on the chart for 2022 as she debuts at #39 with ‘Chaotic’. Like ‘She's All I Wanna Be’ (#19 Feb. ’22), it comes from McRae’s debut album, I Used To Think I Could Fly, scheduled for release in May. 

J. Cole hits the Top 50 at #50 with ‘No Role Modelz’. The track comes from the American rapper’s third album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive. It’s had a resurgence in interest in the last week thanks to its mentioning of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith in its lyrics. It follows the incident involving Will Smith and Chris Rock at the Academy Awards.
