For a fifth week Post Malone and 21 Savage have the No.1 song in Australia with “Rockstar”.
The song is again the No.1 streamed song in the country and the No.4 digital selling track for a second week (its highest position so far), and both acts have a surging and new entry this week too. And stuck at No.2 for a third straight week is Camila Cabello and Young Thug with “Havana” (#2 on both the streaming and digital charts) and making it a stable Top 3 for a second week is Ed Sheeran and “Perfect” (#1 digital, #13 streamed) on hold at No.3 for a second week.
Climbing both to new peaks are Khalid with “Young, Dumb & Broke”, up three to No.4 and Portugal The Man with “Feel it Still” up one spot to No.5, which gives Khalid his highest charted single in Australia beating the No.5 peak of his “1-800” track.
