August 31, 2019

Moves for Taylor Swift, Marshmello and more!

For the fifth consecutive week, Tones And I is at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart with ‘Dance Monkey’. The last time an Australian female solo artist spent five weeks at #1 was when Gabriella Cilmi’s ‘Sweet About Me’ held the top spot for five non-consecutive weeks in May/June 2008. The most time spent at #1 by an Australian female solo artist was Kylie Minogue with ‘Locomotion’ (#1 Aug ‘87). This week, Tones And I released her debut EP, The Kids Are Coming; look out for it on next week’s chart.
 
Debuting at #1 on this week’s Albums Chart with Lover, Taylor Swift scores 13 entries on the Singles Chart with tracks from her seventh album. After debuting at #15 last week, Lover’s title track has moved up 12 spots to become the album’s third Top Three single after ‘Me!’ (#2 May ’19) and ‘You Need To Calm Down’ (#3 Jun. ’19).
 
Hitting its ninth week in the chart, Marshmello’s ‘One Thing Right’ moves up two spots to claim another new peak at #7.
 
After performing at the song at the MTV VMAs, Miley Cyrus moves up four to #18 with ‘Slide Away’.
 
Normani’s ‘Motivation’ climbs 12 spots to hit #35 in its second week in the Top 50.
