Australian Charts: Its 18 Weeks At No 1 for Tones and I

by Gavin Ryan

Four times ARIA Awards winner this past week was Tones and I, who again continues her reign at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart this week with her track “Dance Monkey”, an unprecedented 18 weeks at No.1 now.

“Dance Monkey” and Tones and I won four ARIA Awards on Thursday nights ceremony, “Best Female Artist”, “Breakthrough Artist”, “Best Pop Release” and “Best Independent Release” plus she gave one of the best speeches of the night in her first acceptance speech. The song has now racked up an eighteenth straight week at the top here, with the last songs to spend this long at the top occurring back in the 1940’s for Bing Crosby’s rendition of “I Don’t Want to Walk Without You” (1943) and The Andrews Sisters version of “Near You” (1948) (this info is based on monthly charts, so each week was counted in those months and added together for a total figure). Having a look back at the ‘Longest Running No.1 Singles’ for each decade, it was back in 1959 that we last saw the end of the decade produce the longest run at the top for that entire decade when The Platters’ song “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes” (Feb to mid-April of 1959) logged 10 weeks at the top.

Once again “Dance Monkey” is sitting at the top overseas in Switzerland, Austria (11 weeks), Belgium (10 weeks), The Netherlands, England, France (all nine weeks), Germany (8th week), Portugal (2nd week) and it goes to the top this week in both Bulgaria and Canada {the first Aussie act at the top in Canada since Sia spent four broken weeks at the top with Sean Paul on her track “Cheap Thrills” 2nd of July to 16th of July and then once again on August 20th, 2016}. After 15 weeks at No.1 it falls back to No.2 in Norway and is also in that spot in New Zealand and Sweden, No.3 in Denmark, No.5 in Finland, No.9 in Ireland and it climbs to a new peak of No.19 in the U.S.A. (up from two weeks of sitting at No.23).

Climbing a spot to a new peak of No.2 and to also threaten the No.1 spot this week is the Arizona Zervas track “Roxanne”, which is at the top in New Zealand (3rd week), and we are now the second highest placed country in the world for the song, as its at No.3 in Norway, No.5 in Canada and No.7 in England. Climbing back up two places to its former peak of No.3 is the Regard remix of the Sean Paul track “Ride it” and on hold at No.4 is the latest Maroon 5 single “Memories”.

Post Malone scores the top spot in America this week with his current entry “Circles”, which here is back up one spot to No.5, thanks (in the U.S.) to him winning at the ‘American Music Awards’ this past week. Last weeks No.2 entry for Billie Eilish and “everything i wanted” is down four places this week to No.6, while ARIA Awards show presenter and performer Dua Lipa rises back up one spot to No.7 with the song she sung on Thursday in “Don’t Start Now” swapping places with Lizzo’s “Good as Hell” which is down one spot to No.8. Tones and I is up one spot to a new peak of No.9 with her four-week-running No.10 single “Never Seen the Rain” and it too swaps places with another female singer (6 of the Top 10 songs are by females this week) in the Selena Gomez song “Lose You to Love Me”, down one place to No.10.

UP:
* MeduZa’s second chart entry “Lose Control” jumps up four places to a new peak of No.15.
* Harry Styles is set to release his second album in two weeks time called “Fine Line” (Dec 13), and the second track lifted from the album becomes its second Top 20 single as last weeks new entry for him “Watermelon Sugar” jumps up eighteen places this week to No.20.
* The Sam Feldt track “Post Malone” has taken 21 weeks to reach the Top 30, as this week it is up four places to a new peak of No.30.
* With Khalid in the country this past week, presenting at the ARIA Awards too, his new entry from last week in “Up All Night” jumps this week sixteen spots to No.35, while he also rises with “Talk” (87 to No.78), “Better” (91 to No.84) and “Lovely” with Billie Eilish (94 to No.88).
* Both of the entries for Drax Project rise up one place each this week, with their second entry “Catching Feelings” with Six60 scoring a new peak of No.43 and their older track with Hailee Steinfeld and “Woke Up Late” is up to No.77.
* Guy Sebastian hosted the ARIA Awards on Thursday night and he also won two awards that night, first was for “Best Video” (public voted) and the second last award of the night in ‘Song of the Year’ for his track “Choir”, which benefits from the few hours between the end of the show and the end of the sales period (Thursday midnight) and rises back up nine places to No.45.
* For a fifth week now the Kygo and Whitney Houston cover of “Higher Love” sits at No.50.
* Tones and I sees her first single “Johnny Run Away” rise back up four places to No.60 thanks to her many ARIA Awards.
* Last weeks entry for Tyga and “AYY Macarena” is this week up eleven spots to a new chart peak of No.62.
* After finally hitting No.1 at the end of 2018 after 24 years of release, this week sees the annual return of Mariah Carey’s classic seasonal tune “All I Want for Christmas is You” at No.68.
* Dean Lewis won two awards on Thursday night “Best Male Artist” and “Album of the Year”, this helps his former No.1 single “Be Alright” to climb back up one to No.69, while his duet with Martin Garrix and “Used to Love” is down one spot to No.47.
* With their new album debuting at No.1 this week the latest Coldplay single “Orphans” (HP-68) rebounds eighteen places to No.71.
* The Hilltop Hoods performed their single “Exit Sign” at the ARIA Awards on Thursday, the song rising back up five spots to No.93, while the group won an award for “Best Australian Live Act”.

DOWN:
* No songs enter or leave the Top 10 this week, while last weeks bulleting track in “Lover” for Taylor Swift and Shawn Mendes is back down this week three places to No.16.
* Freya Ridings peaked at No.20 last week with “Castles”, which this week is down a couple of spots to No.22.
* Halsey was in the country last week and also performed her latest track “Graveyard” at the ARIA Awards on Thursday, but the song is down three spots nationally to No.31.
* With a new Harry Styles track jumping into the Top 20 this week, his seven week old No.7 single “Lights Up” is down five places to No.33.
* Kanye West “Follows God” down nine spots to the No.40 spot this week.
* Two of last weeks new entries to slide back down this week are “Mean it” by Lauv (42 to No.44) and “In the Beginning” for Onefour (39 to No.52).
* Also declining nine places to hit No.49 is the Miley Cyrus ballad “Slide Away”.
* Normani loses ten “Motivation” points this week to land at No.51.
* The only new Top 100 certification this week is for the Noah Cyrus track “July”, which is down one spot to No.56 (after peaking last week) and is newly Gold (●) in sales.
* “Goodbyes” for Post Malone slides down eight spots to No.57, with his “Wow.” track dipping five places to No.79.
* Lil’ Nas X’s “Panini” wilts this week sixteen places to plate up at No.64.
* Young Thug and Gunna drop down eleven spots to No.74 with “Hot”.
* The Juice WRLD track “Bandit” slips down fourteen places to No.75.
* Dropping down again this week is the Diplo and Jonas Brothers collaboration “Lonely”, falling ten places to No.76.
* Doja Cat has a second entry this week and her first track “Juicy” with Tyga falls down fourteen places to No.86.
* Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” is again the ‘Longest Charted Single’ at 151 weeks and is down four spots to No.90.
* The Chainsmokers “Takeaway” track crumbles twenty-two places to land at No.90.
* With a massive new Lewis Capaldi track the highest new entry this week his seven week old older release “Bruises” dips sixteen places this week to No.93.
* Shawn Mendes’ “If I Can’t Have You” could be having its last week on the charts, as this week is slips down sixteen spots to No.96.
* The Benee entry “Find an Island” falls twelve places to No.97.

NEW ENTRIES:
* #24 – Before You Go by Lewis Capaldi is now the third entry and track lifted from his debut studio album “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent”, but can be found on the extended edition of the album just issued last week, which contained three extra tracks, this one included. The song has jumped to No.1 in Ireland and is at No.2 behind Tones and I in the UK, while it follows on from “Someone You Loved” (HP-4, TW-14) and “Bruises” (HP-76, TW-93).

* #37 – Yellow Hearts by Ant Saunders is the debut single for American pop singer Anthony Saunders, which has become a viral hit thanks to the app TikTok, with the song first issued independently in June of this year, before he was picked up by Arista (thru Sony) and the song re-issued in mid-November.

* #55 – Own it by Stormzy feat. Ed Sheeran & Burna Boy is the fourth track lifted from the December 13th due second album “Heavy is the Head” for the English rapper and vocalist, and now the second to chart here from that album, as he made it to No.34 earlier this year with his former UK No.1 single “Vossi Bop” (peaked here mid-June 2019). This track features guest vocal from Ed Sheeran, with both artists previously charting together in July on the track from Ed’s “Take Me Back to London” making it to No.29 here, thus making this new entry the third overall entry for Stormzy in Australia.

* #70 – Turn Me on by Riton x Oliver Heldens feat. Vula is the first entry here for the English DJ and producer Henry Smithson (Riton) and the third ever entry for the Dutch DJ and producer Oliver Heldens, who previously charted with “Gecko (Overdrive)” in 2014 (HP-71) and on the Tiesto track “The Right Song” (HP-78, Feb 2016), thus this track entering at No.70 makes this the highest of his chart entries. This song features two major samples in the hook from the 1982 Yazoo single “Don’t Go” (HP-6, peaked early Nov.,1982) and the lesser known “Doctor Love” by First Choice (1977)

* #92 – Candy by Doja Cat is now the second singles chart entry for the US female rapper who three weeks ago entered with “Juicy” featuring rapper Tyga (HP-68, TW-86), and her album “Hot Pink”, which this week falls out the Top 100 albums chart after two weeks and a peak of No.30.

* #99 – Loyal by PARTYNEXTDOOR feat. Drake is taken from the early 2020 new release set “Club Atlantis” for the Canadian rapper-singer-songwriter born Jahron Anthony Braithwaite in 1993. This is his fifth overall chart entry, but his first as lead, having charted on “Run Up” for Major Lazer (HP-27, Feb 2017), “Still Got Time” for Zayn (HP-20, April 2017), and on two tracks for Kanye West in “Ghost Town” (HP-22) and “Wouldn’t Leave” (HP-33) both from June of 2018.

* #100 – Purple Hat by Sofi Tukker is the second entry now for the duo of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern who previously charted with “Drinkee” (HP-42, peaked Jan and Feb of 2017), with this new track being the fourth song lifted from their second EP called “Dancing on the People” which came out in mid-Sept. of this year.
