Nas X along with U.S. country singer Billy Ray Cyrus log a fourth straight week at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart with their track “Old Town Road (I Got Horses in the Back)”.

“Old Town Road” was certified ▲Platinum last week, and this week it rises to 2x▲Platinum in sales plus it is also the ONLY Top 100 new certification this week (there is one outside of the T100), and at four weeks at No.1 the song also becomes the second longest running No.1 for 2019, as ahead of it on five weeks at the top was Ariana Grande with “7 Rings” (from 28th of Jan). “Old Town Road” also holds for a fourth week at the top in Canada and racks up a fifth week at the singles-summit in both America and New Zealand. The song also regains the top spot on the digital sales chart (where further versions are at No.12 {Lil’ Nas X only} and a newer version enters at No.31 {possibly the new Diplo remixed version}, while it holds onto the No.1 streaming spot too).

Rising back up one spot to No.2 is recent tourist here Billie Eilish and “Bad Guy”, which swaps places with last weeks highest new entry of “ME!” by Taylor Swift with Brendon Urie, dipping one spot to No.3. New at No.4 is the first taste from a forthcoming fifth studio album for Shawn Mendes as he debuts with “If I Can’t Have You”, which also entered within the Top 10 in Ireland, New Zealand (both #7), England (#9), Sweden (#10) and the only entry higher than here was in Scotland (#3). This becomes his fifth Top 10 single in Australia, and enters at the peak three of those former Top 10 entries have peaked at in No.4 with “Stitches” (2015), “Treat You Better” (2016) and “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back (2017).

Dominic Fike and his song “3 Nights” drops back one spot to No.5, which is followed by the second and final Top 10 debut for the week in “Homicide” for rappers Logic and Eminem coming in at No.6. This is taken from the next week released new album for Logic called “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” (due May 17th) and overall this is the ninth Top 100 entry for Logic (6 as lead, three as guest), while for Eminem this is his 22nd Top 10 single in Australia. Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” rises back up one spot to No.7, while current tourist here Post Malone drops two places to No.8 with “Sunflower”, logging its 28th week within the Top 10, while on hold at No.9 is the Avicii and Aloe Blacc song “SOS”, followed by a five place drop to No.10 for the Khalid single “Talk”.
