Justin Bieber holds ARIA #1 single for second week with Peaches

Justin Bieber claims a second week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart with ‘Peaches’. Of the Canadian artist’s previous #1 singles, ‘What Do You Mean?’ spent four weeks at #1, ‘Love Yourself’ spent seven weeks at #1 and ‘I Don’t Care’ with Ed Sheeran spent one week in the top spot.

Notching up its third week in the Top 50, Lil Nas X’s ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ continues its climb, moving up one spot to a new peak at #2. The track has given the rapper a second #1 in the UK, US, Canada and Ireland. It’s so far peaked at #2 in New Zealand.

Polo G scores his first entry in the ARIA Top Ten as he debuts at #4 with ‘Rapstar’. The first single released from the American rapper’s forthcoming third album Hall Of Fame, ‘Rapstar’ comes a month after Polo G’s first solo chart entry, ‘Martin & Gina’ (#50 Mar. ’21).

Debuting at #10, Doja Cat scores her second career Top Ten entry with ‘Kiss Me More’. Featuring SZA, it’s the first single to come from the American singer/rapper’s forthcoming third album Planet Her. Doja Cat first appeared in the Top Ten with ‘Say So’ (#4 Mar. ’20).

After debuting at #13, Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Déjà Vu’ Moves up two spots to hit a new peak at #11. This week, the American announced that her debut album will be called SOUR.

As Fearless (Taylor's Version) debuts at #1 on the Albums Chart, Taylor Swift scores three Singles Chart entries from the album: ‘Mr. Perfectly Fine (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)’ (debut at #19), ‘Love Story (Taylor's Version)’ (re-entry at #36) and ‘Forever & Always (Taylor's Version)’ (debut at #45). Like ‘You All Over Me (Taylor's Version)’ (#4 Apr. ’21), ‘Mr. Perfectly Fine’ is a track written for the original Fearless album but not released at the time.

In its second week in the Singles Chart, Russ Millions & Tion Wayne’s ‘Body’ climbs up 15 spots to score a new peak at #32.

Ahead of the release of his second album, Life By Misadventure, later in the month, Rag'N'Bone Man hits this week’s Top 50 at #43 with his duet with P!nk, ‘Anywhere Away From Here’. It’s the singer-songwriter’s third appearance in the ARIA Top 50 after ‘Human’ (#17 Jan. ’17) and the Calvin Harris collaboration ‘Giant’ (#19 Apr. ’19).

Debuting at #48, British DJ/producer Joel Corry follows ‘Head & Heart’ (#2 Oct ’20) with ‘Bed’. The track sees Corry team up with French DJ/producer David Guetta and English singer-songwriter Raye. Corry’s previous single sits at #28 this week, its 37th week in the Top 50.
