“Rockstar” for Post Malone and 21 Savage stays at No.1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for a second week, despite the fact the song is only at #25 on the digital sales chart, the large majority of its figures are derived from streams.

The current #1 here is also spending its second week at the top in New Zealand and Canada and takes out the top spot in the UK this week too, plus Post Malone has four songs within the Top 100 this week, with a new entry just outisde of the fifty. But last weekend in Australia were the Grand Finals for both the AFL and NRL, with The Killers playing on Saturday at the AFL GF in Melbourne and Macklemore the headline act for the NRL Sunday GF, which has flow on effects for his songs he performed on the day. His former No.2 single “Glorious” is back up to No.2 for a second time (it first peaked there on the 21st of August), plus he also returns at No.4 with his former No.1 single “Same Love” (late Jan 2013), which jumps to No.1 on the digital sales chart, and if it had of made it back to the top natioanlly would’ve become the first song ever to hit the top on two separate occassions, but due to streaming nowadays (something not included in the charts four years ago) it has to settle for a No.4 berth.

After a couple of weeks at No.2, Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” is down one spot to No.3 (and spending its 7th week at No.1 in Ireland), whilst also down one spot to No.5 is Sam Smith and “Too Good at Goodbyes”, which picks up a Gold (●) sales certification, as too does the Zayn and Sia song “Dusk Till Dawn”, which climbs one spot to land at a new peak of No.6.

Logic with Alessia Cara and Khalid drops back down two places to No.7 with the US Suicide Prevention line song “1-800-273-8255” and Khalid lands his second Top 10 entry this week as “Young, Dumb and Broke” is up four places to land at No.9. Just prior to Khalid is another Top 10 entry for this week, “Havana” for Camila Cabello and Young Thug, which jumps up eight places to land at a new peak of No.8, becoming her first solo Top 10 entry in Australia, whilst the end of the ten is occupied by Imagine Dragons and “Thunder”, down four spots this week to No.10.

* Leaping up twenty-two places to land at No.11 are J. Balvin and Willy William and “Mi Gente”, which jumps due to a new remix featuring guest vocals by Beyonce.
* Last weeks debut of “Good Old Days” for Macklemore & Kesha is up nine places to No.16, and another older Mack-track returns thanks to his NRL GF performance in “Can’t Hold us Down” at No.69, giving him four songs within the Top 100 this week too.
* Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” rebound from 78 to 41 last week, this week it jumps up again by twenty-two places to land at No.19.
* Khalid has two songs within the Top 10, and also a further two in the Top 40, with “Silence” by Marshmello and Khalid up a couple of spots to No.22 and the new Lorde track “Homemade Dynamite” with Post Malone and Khalid is up one spot to No.39.
* Vance Joy are back up three places to No.24 with “Lay it on Me”, thanks to some TV ads the song is being used in at the moment.
* A new Skrillex remix of the Kendrick Lamar track “HUMBLE.” sees it rise back up twelve to No.42.
* Hailee Steinfeld and Alesso rise eight spots to a new peak of No.41 with “Let Me Go”.
* As I mentioned earlier, The Killers played the AFL Grand Final show, and they see returns and rises for their entries this week, with “Mr. Brightside” (HP-29, Jan 2005) back in at No.49, their new single “The Man” jumps up nineteen places to a new peak of No.65, “Somebody Told Me” (HP-17, Nov 2004) returns at No.71 and finally “When We Were Young” (HP-10, October 2006) re-enters at No.82.
* The current US No.1 single “Bodak Yellow” for Cardi B is up one place here to a new peak of No.52.
* The new Miley Cyrus album debuts at No.2, and its first single “Malibu” is back up nine to No.62, whilst the title track “Younger Now” is back in at No.87.

* Three songs leave the Top 10 this week, with “I Like Me Better” (HP-8, WI10-2) by Lauv down four to No.12, followed by “Sorry, Not Sorry” (HP-8, WI10-2) by Demi Lovato dropping three spots to No.13, and former No.1 for Taylor Swift and “Look What You Made Me Do” (HP-1×2, WI10-5), falls five spots to land at No.14, whilst Taylor’s other entry “…Ready for it?” tumbles eleven to No.37.

* #56 – I Fall Apart by Post Malone is taken from his current album “Stoney” which cracks the Top 20 on the Albums chart this week, and follows on from his current No.1 single “Rockstar” (not from that album), and the sets first entry “Congratulations” (TW-44, HP-30).

* #59 – Free Fallin’ by Tom Petty is a new entry this week because the single never charted when released back in 1989 from his “Full Moon Fever” album. This past week the 66 year-old US singer passed away after cardiac arrest, and he also returns to the chart at No.78 with “I Won’t Back Down” (HP-16, peaked July 1989), which was the first single released from the aforementioned album, and this new entry gives the artist his thirteenth Top 100 entry since first charting in April 1978.

* #89 – Hotel by Kita Alexander becomes the local singers fourth single release and third to chart, as back in 2015 she scored two entries “My Own Way” (HP-95) and “Like You Want to” (HP-82).
