The Kid Laroi & Justin Bieber hold ARIA Singles Chart #1 for fourth week with Stay

For the fourth consecutive week, The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber hold #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart with their collaboration ‘Stay’. In the past week, The Kid Laroi hit #1 on the Billboard 200 in the US with F*ck Love (#1 Feb. ‘21). He became the first Australian solo act to top that chart since Sia debuted at #1 in July 2014 with 1000 Forms of Fear.

Debuting at #1 on the Albums Chart with second album, Happier Than Ever, American star Billie Eilish scores five debuts in this week’s Top 50. The highest debut is with the album’s title track at #6. It’s joined by ‘Getting Older’ (#35), ‘Oxytocin’ (#38), ‘Billie Bossa Nova’ (#40) and ‘I Didn’t Change My Number’ (#45). ‘NDA’ and ‘Lost Cause’ have re-entered the chart at #36 and #46, respectively.

A week on from debuting at #34, Sleepy Hallow’s ‘2055’ jumps up 21 spots to #13. A new remix of the track was released recently featuring New Jersey rapper Coi Leray.

Melbourne-based DJ/producer Jolyon Petch makes his Top 50 debut at #28 with his reimagining of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’. Featuring vocals by Reigan Derry, it spent seven weeks at #1 on the ARIA Club Chart between April and June this year. The original ‘Dreams’, which became a viral sensation in 2020 thanks to TikTok, currently sits at #37.

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak’s Silk Sonic score their second ARIA Top 50 entry at #32 with ‘Skate’. Like debut single ‘Leave The Door Open’ (#10 Mar. ’21), the new track comes from their pair’s debut album, An Evening with Silk Sonic, which has a TBA release date.

Melbourne electronic duo Shouse make their Top 50 debut at #49 with ‘Love Tonight’. Originally released in 2017, the track has gained traction in recent months thanks to remixes released by German producer Oliver Huntemann, Brazilian DJ/producer Vintage Culture and French DJ/producer David Guetta. It’s also spread via TikTok.
