Post Malone holds #1 for second week

October 7, 2017

Moves for Macklemore, Camila Cabello, Khalid and more!

‘Rockstar’ by American rapper Post Malone holds #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for a second straight week. To date, the track has peaked at #2 in both the US and UK.

At #4, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ former #1 ‘Same Love’ returns to the top 50 for the first time since May 2013 on the back of Macklemore’s performance at the NRL Grand Final. During the song’s original run in the chart, it spent four consecutive weeks at #1 during January/February 2013. This week is its tenth week in the top ten and 21st week in the top 50. Macklemore’s first charting solo single ‘Glorious’ has moved back up one spot to #2 and current single ‘Good Old Days’ has moved up nine spots to #16.

Moving up eight spots this week, ‘Havana’ hits #8 and becomes Camila Cabello’s first solo top ten entry. As a member of Fifth Harmony, Cabello scored top ten hits with ‘Worth It’ (#9 Aug. ’15) and ‘Work From Home’ (#3 Apr. ’16).

In its seventh week in the top 50, Khalid’s ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ climbs up four spots to #9, cracking the top ten for the first time. It’s Khalid’s first top ten single as a lead artist, having peaked at #5 last week as the featured artist on Logic’s ‘1-800-273-8255’.

Following eight weeks in the bottom half of the top 50, J Balvin & Willy William’s ‘Mi Gente’ jumps 22 spots this week to #11. Its jump comes after the release of a remix featuring vocals by Beyoncé, who will donate all proceeds from the song to hurricane relief charities in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and other Caribbean islands.

This week’s Singles Chart also includes new peaks for Zayn’s ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ (#6), Marshmello x Khalid’s ‘Silence’ (#22), Lorde’s ‘Homemade Dynamite (Remix)’ (#39) and Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso’s ‘Let Me Go’ (#41).

Debuts:

#27: P!nk ‘Beautiful Trauma’ – With her seventh album set for release next week, P!nk hits the Singles Chart this week with its title track. ‘Beautiful Trauma’ is the American artist’s second chart entry as a lead artist in 2017, following ‘What About Us’ (#1 Aug. ’17).
