Australian Charts: Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus send 11th week at no 1

The “Old Town Road” for Lil’ Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus may soon be coming to a fork in the road, as it’s starts to slow down its rule at the top in Australia, even though this week it logs an eleventh week at No.1 here.

“Old Town Road” is only the top selling Digital single this week, dropping to No.2 on the streaming chart, plus after seven broken weeks as the No.1 digital tracks chart and also 13 weeks as the top streamed song, the song would be losing steam. The song retains its lead in America (13th week) and Canada (12 weeks), but loses it in N.Z. (after 12 weeks there). Plus with its eleventh week at the top “Old Town Road” becomes the fourth equal longest running No.1 for this decade, tying with 2018’s “God’s Plan” by Drake, plus the song is also now the equal 22nd longest running No.1 of all time (1940 to 2019) alongside further eleven-week runs for Bryan Adams’ “(Everything I Do) I Do it for You” (1991), “Wannabe” for The Spice Girls (1996) and “Mull of Kintyre”/”Girls’ School” for Wings (1978). Billy’s tally for weeks at No.1 also rises now to 18 weeks, placing him equal 41st on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Singles (1940 to 2019) alongside Judy Garland (2 No.1’s for 18 weeks).

The new No.1 streamed track is last weeks highest entry of “Senorita” for Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, which is on hold at No.2 nationally, while it climbs to the top in New Zealand and holds for a second week at the summit in Ireland, and another stable track is at No.3 in the current eight-week-running UK No.1 song “I Don’t Care” for Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber. Debuting at No.4 this week is “Beautiful People” for Ed Sheeran and Khalid, which is the third track lifted from next weeks new released Ed album of duets and collaborations. The second single lifted from the new set was “Cross Me” with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock, which is stable at No.8 this week, giving Ed three songs within the Top 10, something which he first did on the 27th Feb, 2017 and then surpassed that feat a few weeks later on 13-March, 2017 when he placed 5 songs within the Top 10, which could mean that he is on track to land a majority of the 15 track new album at the high end of the chart. This new Top 10 debut for Ed makes it his 21st Top 10 single and also the ninth Top 10 and eighth Top 5 entry for Khalid too.

Billie Eilish is down one place to No.5 with her former No.1 song “Bad Guy” and stable at No.6 is the Lewis Capaldi first entry “Someone You Loved”. MeduZa with Goodboys and “Piece of Your Heart” rises two spots to land at a new peak of No.7 this week, while Taylor Swift’s three week old entry “You Need to Calm Down” drops four places to No.10. Jumping up ten spots to a new peak of No.10 is “Choir” by Guy Sebastian, becoming his thirteenth Top 10 single in Australia, and his first since “Like a Drum” (HP-4, peaked early November, 2013) {he got close with “Set in Stone” which peaked at No.11 in late November of 2016}. It’s leap is helped by two factors from this past week, in that he sang the song as a part of a medley at last Sunday’s ‘Logie Awards’, plus he sang the track again on ‘The Voice’ this past week.

* Last weeks debut for Lil’ Nas X with “Panini” is up a couple of places to a new peak of No.15, while his other entry from last week and “Rodeo” is stable at its entry point of No.72.
* Tones and I scores back-to-back entries this week, both of which occurs within the Top 20 giving her also her second entry to this chart region, as her first single “Johnny Run Away” is down three to No.16 and her newer single “Dance Monkey” leaps up fourteen places to a new peak of No.17.
* The country infused track for Blanco Brown and “The Git Up” gallops up eight places to a new peak of No.19.
* Six weeks ago Lizzo peaked at No.21 for two weeks with “Truth Hurts”, which this week rebounds back to that peak for a third week there.
* Another of last weeks new entries to rise slightly is the Ali Gatie track “It’s You”, up two spots to No.22.
* The Chainsmokers and Bebe Rexha with “Call You Mine” rises four spots to a new chart height of No.28.
* The only new certification this week is the Ruel track “Painkiller”, which is now Gold (●) in sales and stable at No.38.
* Two more of last weeks entries to climb to new chart heights this week are “One Right Thing ” for Marshmello and Kane Brown (56 to 45), and with another Logie’s performance last Sunday night from Jessica Mauboy with her latest “Little Things” (62 to 58).
* Like the previous two occasions when a new Ed Sheeran song entered the charts, his 100+ singles rise again this week, but only for one as “Perfect” is stable at No.64 (122 weeks) while the ‘Longest Charted Single’ in “Shape of You” is back up a spot to No.75 at 130 weeks within the Top 100.
* Three songs return to the chart this week in “Homicide” for Logic and Eminem (#86), and two of last weeks dropouts in “Girls Like You” for Maroon 5 with Cardi B (#96) and “Coincidence” for Ocean Alley (#98).

* Two weeks ago Drake spent a single week in the Top 10 on the Chris Brown song “No Guidance” (TW-12), and now his Top 10 entry from last week in “Money in the Grave” (HP-7, WI10-1) also leaves after a single week (and also a peak of No.7) to drop back down four places to No.11, after which Katy Perry’s “Never Really Over” (HP-7×2, WI10-4) falls three places to No.13.
* Post Malone should debut next week with his just issued track “Goodbyes” feat. Young Thug, but for now his track “Sunflower” is down three places to No.18, while he also descends with “Wow.” (29 to 32), “Better Now” (79 to 82) and departs with 90+week entries “I Fall Apart” (#95, 91 weeks) and “Rockstar” (#100, 93 weeks).
* 5 Seconds of Summer’s “Easier” drops down seven places to No.23, with their Chainsmokers collaboration “Who Do You Love” sliding down four to No.78.
* There’s a ten place fall to No.24 for the former No.1 single by the Jonas Brothers in “Sucker”.
* Also dropping out of the Top 20 this week are “3 Nights” for Dominic Fike (18 to 25) and “SOS” for Avicii with Aloe Blacc (19 to 27), while Avicii’s “Heaven” with Chris Martin falls seven spots to No.40.
* Young Thug’s track “The London” slides down nine places to No.30.
* Khalid’s “Talk” falls six spots to No.31, while he is also down with the Billie Eilish duet “Lovely” (45 to 50) and “Better” (51 to 53).
* Marshmello has three songs within the Top 50 this week, one rising, one stable and one falling, that one being his CHVRCHES collaboration “Here with Me” (30 to 35), while his Bastille teaming “Happier” holds at No.48.
* Tyler, the Creator and his “Earquake” crumbles sixteen spots this week to No.39.
* Taylor Swift drops ten spots to No.47 with her second and lowest entry this week “ME!”.
* Mabel’s “Don’t Call Me Up” dips down six spots to No.49, but her climbing newer entry “Mad Love” turns around and dives back down twenty-two places this week to No.89.
* With a new Stormzy track “Crown” currently embedded in the UK Top 10, his former No.1 song there in “Vossi Bop” is here down eleven places to No.51.
* Billie Eilish drops nine spots to No.59 with “Bury a Friend”, and then ten places to No.100 with “Wish You Were Gay”.
* Dean Lewis has three songs all falling this week in “Be Alright” (one year last week, 55 to 62), “7 Minutes” (82 to 90) and “Stay Awake” (73 to 91).
* The three week old entries to slump apart from Mabel are “Let You Know” for Flume and AlunaGeorge (44 to 61) and “Sanctuary” by Joji (60 to 73).
* Halsey’s “Nightmare” continues to slide down the chart, this week dropping fifteen spots to No.69, overtaking her older entry “Without Me” (61 to 63).
* A Boogie wit da Hoodie and his second entry “Swervin'” dips down eight spots to No.83.
* Bazzi’s “Paradise” declines ten places this week to No.87.
* DaBaby and his first entry “Suge” drops twelve places to No.95.

* #20 – Don’t Check on Me by Chris Brown feat. Justin Bieber is taken from Chris’ debuting ninth studio album called “Indigo” (TW-3), and overall this is his 60th Top 100 (37 as lead, 23 as guest vocalist), 40th Top 50 entry and also his 16th Top 20 placing, as four weeks ago he debuted with his Drake duet “No Guidance” (HP-7, TW-12) and this is also the third chart entry from the new album as “Undecided” (HP-58) charted in January of this year.

* #34 – Higher Love by Kygo feat. Whitney Houston is a cover of the 1986 single by Steve Winwood, between the Norwegian producer Kygo and the late Whitney Houston, whose vocals for this cover were originally released on her third album “I’m Your Baby Tonight”, but only as bonus track on the Japanese edition of the album, so to the wider world it’s been mostly unavailable and unheard. The original by Steve Winwood peaked at No.8 for a single week within the Top 10 in late September of 1986, plus it was covered in 2013 by James Vincent McMorrow as a slowed down and laid-back version (HP-35, peaked 22-April, 2013) .

* #66 – Then What by Illy is the first track from a forthcoming sixth album for the local MC and rapper, who last charted solo in 2017 with “Oh My” (HP-89, peaked 22-May, 2017), but he has been featured on the current entry for the Hilltop Hoods in “Exit Sign” (HP-16, TW-41), and overall this is the twelfth singles chart entry for him.

* #77 – Young Again by Morgan Evans is the last listed track on the second Evans’ album “Things That We Drink to” (HP-5, returns this week at #13) and with a pending October tour here, this becomes his fourth singles chart entry in Australia and fourth from the album after “Kiss Somebody” (HP-53, peaked 25-Sept, 2017), “I Do” (HP-72, peaked 18-Dec, 2017) and his highest charted song so far “Day Drunk” (HP-27, peaked first week of January 2019), while this new entry previously made it to No.35 on the digital charts (20-Aug, 2018).

* #85 – Hate Me by Ellie Goulding with Juice WRLD is the 19th Top 100 entry for the UK singer, and now the third to chart from her untitled and un-dated fourth studio album, following on from “Close to Me” (HP-25, peaked late January 2019) and the most recent “Sixteen” (HP-77, peaked late April 2019), while for rapper Juice WRLD this is his sixth Top 100 appearance.

* #88 – On a Roll by Ashley O is a character played by Miley Cyrus from the recent fifth season of TV series ‘Black Mirror’ where she gets to play an A.I. doll called Ashley Too in episode called “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too”

* #99 – Can We Pretend by Pink feat. Cash Cash is the fourth song to chart from the current Top 10 album for Pink called “Hurts 2B Human” (HP-1×3, TW-7) following on from “Walk Me Home” (HP-11, TW-76), “Hustle” (HP-69, 8-April, 2019) and “Hurts 2B Human” with Khalid (HP-48, 6-May-2019), plus the track from the album “Love Me Anyway” made it to No.49 on the digital charts (6-May, 2019) and this song has been on the digital sales chart since the 22nd of April, peaking at No.20 (so far) and sitting at No.28 this week.
