September 21, 2019

Debuts for Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey and more!

As it spends its eighth consecutive week at #1, ‘Dance Monkey’ by Tones And I claims the record for most weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart by an Australian female solo artist; breaking a 32 year record previously held by Kylie Minogue’s ‘Locomotion’ (#1 Aug. ’87). In the past week, the track has hit #1 in Austria, Switzerland and France. It also cracked the UK Top 20 for the first time. The current record holder for most weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart by an Australian single is Justice Crew’s ‘Que Sera’, which spent nine weeks in the top spot in 2014.
 
After three straight weeks at #7, Marshmello’s ‘One Thing Right’ moves up one spot to claim a new peak at #6. It’s the track’s twelfth week in the Top 50.
 
Lil Nas X’s second Singles Chart entry continues its resurgence on the back of the release of the track’s video. After re-entering the chart at #41 last week, this week it’s up 15 spots to #26. Previous single ‘Old Town Road’ has dropped two spots to #8.
 
Lizzo’s ‘Good As Hell’ moves up five spots to hit a new peak at #31.
 
After debuting at #42, Camila Cabello’s ‘Liar’ climbs nine spots to #33 in its second week in the Top 50. Cabello is also at #3 with her duet with Shawn Mendes, ‘Señorita’; the single’s 13th consecutive week in the Top Three.
