Tones And I breaks another ARIA Charts record

October 12, 2019

Debuts for Travis Scott, Dan + Shay, Justin Bieber and more!

A week on from breaking the record for most weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart by an Australian artist, Tones And I holds on to the top spot for a eleventh week with ‘Dance Monkey’. This week, the singer-songwriter breaks the record for most weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart by a female solo act; a record previously jointly-held by Sandi Thom’s ‘I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair)’ (2006) and Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ (1992/93). Tones And I has received eight ARIA Awards nominations in 2019, including for Song Of The Year and Best Video.
 
Jumping up five spots to #7, Maroon 5 crack the Top Ten with ‘Memories’. The single becomes the American band’s twelfth Top Ten single in Australia. They first appeared in the Top Ten with ‘This Love’ (#8 May ’04).
 
The week’s biggest move comes from Kosovan DJ, Regard and his remix of Jay Sean’s 2008 hit, ‘Ride It’. In its third week in the Top 50, it’s jumped 17 spots to #11. In the UK, it has peaked at #2.
 
Lizzo continues to claim new peaks. ‘Good As Hell’ is up two spots to claim a new peak at #14, while her album, Cuz I Love You, has re-entered the Top 50 and hit a new peak at #30.
 
In its fourth week in the chart, ‘Hot Girl Bummer’ by blackbear moves up 16 spots to reach a new peak at #17.
 
This week’s chart also features new peaks for Halsey’s ‘Graveyard’ (#31) and Freya Riding’s ‘Castles’ (#45).

Debuts:
 
#3: Travis Scott ‘Highest In The Room’ – American rapper Travis Scott takes out his first Top 50 debut for 2019 with ‘Highest In The Room’. The track becomes Scott’s third Top Ten single and his highest peak to date, surpassing ‘Sicko Mode’ (#6 Feb. ’19), which spent 38 weeks in the Top 50.
 
#4: Dan + Shay & Justin Bieber ‘10,000 Hours’ – American country duo Dan + Shay team up with Justin Bieber for ‘10,000 Hours’. The track becomes the first to hit the Singles Chart Top 50 for Dan + Shay.

#43: French Montana Feat. Post Malone, Cardi B & RVSSIAN ‘Writing On The Wall’ – French Montana returns to the Top 50 for the first time since 2017 with the Post Malone, Cardi B & RVSSIAN-featured track ‘Writing On The Wall’. The single comes from the rapper’s forthcoming third album, Montana. He previously charted with ‘Unforgettable’ (#7 Aug. ’17).
 
#48: Diplo & Jonas Brothers ‘Lonely’ – Joining forces, DJ/producer Diplo and American trio the Jonas Brothers enter the Top 50 with ‘Lonely’.
