Mood by 24kGoldn notches up eight weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart

For the eighth week, ‘Mood’ by 24kGoldn tops the ARIA Singles Chart. The American rapper’s first chart-topper in Australia has spent the second most weeks at #1 in 2020, sitting below The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ (#1 Jan. ’20), which spent eleven weeks at the top.

With Miley Cyrus' Plastic Hearts debuting at #3 on this week’s Albums Chart, the album’s lead single ‘Midnight Sky’ jumps six spots to #7, hitting the Top Ten for the first time. It becomes Cyrus’ eighth Top Ten solo single and the first since ‘Malibu’ (#3 May ’17). Plastic Hearts’ second single, ‘Prisoner’, also hits a new peak this week at #13.

As we hit December, Mariah Carey’s festive classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ re-enters the chart at #16, notching up its 35th week in the Top 50. Originally released in 1994, the single has returned to the chart every year since 2012. It hit #1 on the chart for the very first time on the last chart of 2019.

In its third week in the Top 50, Tones and I’s ‘Fly Away’ moves up five spots to claim a new peak at #19. Nominated for three ARIA Awards in 2020, Tones and I was one of the performers featured in the show-closing performance of Helen Reddy’s ‘I Am Woman’.

CJ’s Whoopty moves up eleven spots to claim a new peak at #21.

Moving up two spots to #24, Sigala and James Arthur’s ‘Lasting Lover’ hits a new peak.

Tasmanian-based Jam Mountain Music make their ARIA Singles Chart debut with ‘Light A Candle’. The Christmas song has been released to raise money for the charity Act For Kids.

Two more Chrismas favourites have returned to the Top 50 this week: ‘Last Christmas’ by Wham! (#40) and ‘It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas’ by Michael Bublé (#41).

There are also new peaks this week for Hooligan Hefs’ ‘Send It!’ (#37) and Meduza’s ‘Paradise’ (#45).
