#45: Flume Feat. Toro y Moi ‘The Difference’ – Flume teams up with American artist Toro y Moi for the new single ‘The Difference’. It’s the Sydney electronic producer’s first new release of 2020; in 2019 he collaborated with Vera Blue on ‘Rushing Back’ (#8 Feb. ’20), which is at #27 this week.
 
#49: Noah Cyrus ‘July’ – American artist Noah Cyrus makes her Top 50 debut with ‘July’. Miley Cyrus’ youngest sibling first released the single in July 2019. It’s gained further exposure thanks to a duet version recorded with soul singer Leon Bridges.
