DaBaby makes it five weeks at #1 with Rockstar

June 20, 2020

Moves by Topic, Harry Styles, S1mba and more!

It’s week five at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for DaBaby’s ‘Rockstar’. This week saw the release of the Black Lives Matter remix of the track featuring new lyrics with DaBaby describing his experiences with the police.
 
Topic’s ‘Breaking Me’ continues its climb up the chart, moving one spot this week to hit a new peak at #4. To date, it’s also peaked at #4 in the UK.
 
Jumping up six spots to #6, ‘Watermelon Sugar’ becomes Harry Styles’ fourth solo Top Ten on the Singles Chart and the third from the album Fine Line (#1 Dec. ’19) after ‘Lights Up’ (#7 Oct. ’19) and ‘Adore You’ (#7 Dec. ’19).
 
Climbing 18 spots to #7 in its ninth week in the chart, S1mba’s ‘Rover’ hits the ARIA Top Ten for the first time. The surge up the chart for the single comes after the release of a remix featuring Australian hip hop artists Hooligan Hefs, Youngn Lipz and Hooks.
 
This week’s chart also features new peaks for Chris Brown & Young Thug’s ‘Go Crazy’ (#14), StaySolidRocky’s ‘Party Girl’ (#19) and Brando’s ‘Look Into My Eyes’ (#31).
 
Debuts:
 
#23: The Kid Laroi Feat. Juice WRLD ‘Go’ – Sydney rapper The Kid Laroi makes his ARIA Singles Chart Top 50 debut with ‘Go’. The single features Juice WRLD, who The Kid Laroi received mentorship from when he supported the late American rapper on his Australian tours in 2018 and 2019. The Kid Laroi first rose to prominence when he was a finalist in Triple J’s Unearthed High competition in 2018.
 
#24: Jawsh 685 x Jason Derulo ‘Savage Love (Laxed - Siren Beat)’ – Kiwi producer Jawsh 685 makes his Top 50 debut as he joins forces with Jason Derulo on ‘Savage Love (Laxed - Siren Beat)’. Originally known as ‘Laxed (Siren Beat)’, Jawsh 685 posted the instrumental track to YouTube in 2019. It went viral on TikTok in early 2020, soundtracking the "Culture Dance" challenge. Derulo posted his own "Culture Dance" challenge video before teasing ‘Savage Love’, which sampled ‘Laxed (Siren Beat)’. A disagreement between the artists over credits was resolved in early June, with the re-named ‘Savage Love (Laxed - Siren Beat)’ released not long after. It’s Jason Derulo’s first Top 50 appearance since ‘Goodbye’ (#33 Oct. ’18).
 
#45: 6ix9ine & Nicki Minaj ‘Trollz’ – American hip hop artists 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj team up for ‘Trollz’. It’s the second single in as many months to hit the Top 50 for 6ix9ine after ‘Gooba’ (#14 May ’20); he and Minaj have previously collaborated on the tracks ‘Fefe’ (#8 Aug. ’18) and ‘Mama’ (#22 Dec. ’18)
 
#48: Regard ‘Secrets’ – Kosovar producer Regard takes out his second Top 50 entry with ‘Secrets’. The new single follows on from ‘Ride It’ (#3 Nov. ’19), which sits at #34 this week. ‘Secrets’ features vocals by British artist Raye, who has previously appeared on Jonas Blue’s ‘By Your Side’ (#33 Dec. ’16) and Jax Jones’ ‘You Don’t Know Me’ (#12 Mar. ’17).
