It’s a second week at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart for the second Ariana Grande No.1 this year (and ever) in “thank u, next”, which also holds for a second week in New Zealand, America and Canada while a third week at the summit in both England and Ireland.

“thank u, next” now becomes Ariana’s longest running No.1 song here in Australia, as its second week at the top is twice as long as her former No.1 “No Tears Left to Cry” (TW-76), and it takes her tally of weeks at No.1 here to now three in total. placing her equal 27th on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Singles; 2010’s’ alongside the three racked-up weeks from Calvin Harris, Major Lazer and M0 this decade, while the song after three weeks of charting is now Gold (●).

The entire top seven songs this week are on hold from last week with former No.1 “Shallow” for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper at No.2 again followed by the Halsey track “Without Me” at its No.3 peak for a second week, the track newly certified ▲Platinum (both songs have been charting for 7 weeks apiece but only Halsey has been certified {twice now} yet the former No.1 “Shallow” has not as yet been given a certification).

This coming week the ARIA Awards will be held and two of the performers on the night are both within the Top 10 this week with former No.1 songs in “Shotgun” by George Ezra on hold at No.4 and Dean Lewis’ “Be Alright” down one spot to No.9, that song currently No.1 in Belgium and Top 10 in Sweden, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland, while it climbs No.81 in the US and No.56 in the Canadian singles’ charts.

Marshmello and Bastille with “Happier”, “Sunflower” by Post Malone with Swae Lee and “Eastside” by Benny Blanco with Halsey and Khalid are also all on hold at No.5, No.6 and No.7 respectively, while swapping places with Dean Lewis this week is Loud Luxury with “Body”, up one spot to No.8, and on hold at its No.10 peak for a third non consecutive week is the Billie Eilish track “When the Party’s Over”.
