Third week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for 24kGoldn's Mood

Plus, Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams cracks the Top Ten!

Third week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for 24kGoldn's Mood

For the third straight week, ‘Mood’ by 24kGoldn is #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The San Francisco-born rapper has also spent three weeks at #1 in the UK, while also going to the top of the charts in New Zealand and Canada and peaking at #4 in the US.

The remarkable resurgence of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’ continues this week, with the track jumping ten spots to hit #4. The TikTok video by user Doggface208 that started the boom in interest has inspired a large number of parodies and tributes, including from Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood, and in the last week the track’s vocalist, Stevie Nicks. When it was originally released, ‘Dreams’ peaked at #19 in Australia in August 1977. It becomes Fleetwood Mac’s first appearance in the Top Five in Australia since ‘Tusk’ in December 1979. The album Rumours has moved six spots to #11.

Moving up three spots to #8 in its second week in the Top 50, ‘What You Know Bout Love’ becomes the second Top Ten single for the late rapper Pop Smoke. It currently sits three spots below the peak hit by his first Top Ten entry, ‘Mood Swings’ (#5 Sept. ’20).

Four weeks into its stay on the chart, Ritt Momney’s version of ‘Put Your Records On’ climbs seven spots to hit a new peak at #12. It now sits 18 spots above the peak reached by the original version by Corinne Bailey Rae in April 2006.

Debuting at #35 with ‘Levitating’, Dua Lipa scores her third new Top 50 entry for 2020. Featuring Madonna and Missy Elliott, the track comes from the album Club Future Nostalgia, which remixes the entirety of the British artist’s #1 second album Future Nostalgia (#1 Apr. ’20). Dua Lipa has also entered the chart this year with ‘Physical’ (#9 Apr. ’20) and ‘Break My Heart’ (#7 Apr. ’20).

Nominated this week for Song Of The Year at the 2020 ARIA Awards, Sam Fischer’s ‘This City’ moves back up seven spots to #38.
