The Weeknd lands first #1 single

January 25, 2020

Debuts for Eminem, Jonas Brothers and more!

‘Blinding Lights’ moves up one spot to land The Weeknd his first #1 single on the ARIA Charts, eight weeks after it was first released. The Canadian artist’s previous highest peak was #2 which he held with both ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ (#2 Jul. ’15) and ‘Starboy’ (#2 Nov. ’16). ‘Blinding Lights’ has hit #1 in a number of European markets and is racing up charts elsewhere.
 
Roddy Ricch’s viral hit ‘The Box’ moves up two spots in its third week in the Top 50 to land a new peak at #5. The single has now spent two weeks at #1 in the US.
 
A week on from debuting at #15, Future’s collaboration with Drake ‘Life Is Good’ climbs to a new peak at #11. To date, it’s peaked at #2 in the US and #3 in the UK.
 
After debuting at #41 last week, Halsey jumps 26 spots to #15 with ‘You Should Be Sad’. It comes on the back of the #2 debut on the Albums Chart for her third album, Manic.
 
This week’s chart also includes new peaks for Brockhampton’s ‘Sugar’ (#19), Selena Gomez’s ‘Rare’ (#22) and Mac Miller’s ‘Good News’ (#27).
