Second week at ARIA #1 for Elton John and Dua Lipa's Cold Heart (Pnau Remix)

Elton John & Dua Lipa’s ‘Cold Heart (Pnau Remix)’ holds #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for a second straight week. The track only spent one week at #1 in the UK, but like in Australia, it spent five weeks at #2.

Debuting at #9, American hip hop artist Post Malone teams up with The Weeknd to release ‘One Right Now’. It’s the second track from Malone’s forthcoming fourth album after Motley Crew (#19 Jul. ’21) and becomes his tenth Singles Chart Top Ten. It’s The Weeknd’s twelfth career Top Ten and third for 2021; he debuted at #8 two weeks ago with ‘Moth To A Flame’, a collaboration with Swedish House Mafia.

This week, American rapper Travis Scott debuts in the Top 50 with two tracks: ‘Escape Plan’ (#22) and ‘Mafia’ (#47). On November 5, at least nine people died and hundreds were injured in a crowd crush during Scott's performance at his annual Astroworld Festival in his hometown of Houston, Texas.

Ahead of the release of their debut album, An Evening with Silk Sonic, American superduo Silk Sonic score a third Singles Chart entry at #34 with ‘Smokin Out The Window’. It comes after their singles ‘Leave The Door Open’ (#10 Mar. ‘21) and ‘Skate’ (#32 Aug. ‘21).

This week’s Singles Chart also includes new peaks for The Anxiety’s ‘Meet Me At Our Spot’ (#8), Justin Bieber’s ‘Ghost’ (#12), NEIKED & Mae Muller’s ‘Better Days’ (#16) and Jason Derulo’s ‘Acapulco’ (#30).
