June 29, 2019

Debuts for Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello, Ali Gatie and more!

‘Old Town Road’ by American rapper Lil Nas X takes out its tenth week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The single now sits alongside Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ (#1 Dec. ’92), Sandi Thom’s ‘I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair)’ (#1 Sept. ’06) and LMFAO’s ‘Party Rock Anthem’ (#1 Apr. ’11), who all spent ten weeks in the top spot. The current record for most weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart is Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape Of You’, which spent 15 weeks there in 2017.
 
Moving up five spots to #7, ‘Money In The Grave’ becomes Drake’s twelfth Top Ten on the ARIA Singles Chart.
 
Italian trio MeduZa hit the Top Ten at #9 with ‘Piece Of Your Heart’. It’s the track’s sixth week on the chart.
 
In its third week in the Top 50, Guy Sebastian’s ‘Choir’ jumps up 13 to claim a new peak at #20.
 
There are also new peaks this week for OneRepublic’s ‘Rescue Me’ (#26), Blanco Brown’s ‘The Git Up’ (#27), Tones And I’s ‘Dance Monkey’ (#31) and The Chainsmokers’ ‘Call You Mine’ (#32).

Debuts:
 
#2: Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello ‘Señorita’ – Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello team up for a second time, releasing ‘Señorita’. The track is Mendes’ second release to hit the Top 50 in 2019 after ‘If I Can’t Have You’ (#4 May ’19). Cabello last appeared on the chart with ‘Never Be The Same’ (#7 Feb. ’18). The pair previously collaborated on the single ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ (#33 Feb. ’16).
 
#17: Lil Nas X ‘Panini’ – Lil Nas X scores a second Top 50 entry with ‘Panini’. The track comes from the American rapper’s debut EP, 7 (debuting at #5 this week). The late Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain receives a writing credit on the song due to the chorus of the ‘Panini’ containing an interpolation of the track ‘In Bloom’ off Nevermind (#2 Jan. ’92).
 
#24: Ali Gatie ‘It’s You’ – 21-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter Ali Gatie makes his ARIA Singles Chart debut with ‘It's You’. The track recently cracked the Top 50 in Gatie’s homeland and the Top 100 in the US.
