Setting new records in Oz and around the world this week is Tones and I with her “Dance Monkey” track, now claiming a record-breaking 16 weeks at No.1 on the ARIA Singles Chart.

“Dance Monkey” is now the longest running No.1 Single in ARIA chart history (1983 to 2019), the longest running No.1 of the modern rock-era (1955 onwards) and the longest running No.1 for a Solo Female Artist, and it surpasses the fifteen weeks achieved by Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” in 2017 to become the longest running No.1 of this decade. Overseas the song for Toni logs a seventh week in the U.K. charts to become their longest running No.1 by a female artist since Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love” (No.1 for it’s fourth of seven weeks at the this time in 2007), plus it’s the longest running No.1 by an Aussie artist since 1978 when Olivia Newton-John appeared on two long running No.1’s in the UK in “You’re the One That I Want” (9 weeks) and “Summer Nights” (7 weeks) both with John Travolta and from the ‘Grease’ soundtrack.

The current No.1 here is also again at the top in Norway (14th week), Switzerland, Austria, France (9 weeks each), Belgium (8th week), The Netherlands, England (both 7 weeks) and Germany (6th week), while it is at No.3 in Bulgaria, jumps from #5 to No.2 in Canada, enters the Top 10 in Portugal (#12 to No.5) and leaps up from No.41 to a new peak of No.23 in America. It lost the top spot in New Zealand after nine weeks (#3 TW, now the second longest running No.1 in N.Z. for an Aussie act behind the 10 weeks achieved by Stan Walker with “Black Box” in 2009) and is at No.2 in Sweden and Denmark, No.3 also in Finland and at No.5 in Ireland. The song went 4xP five weeks ago, 5xP three weeks ago, and now this week it is up to 6x▲Platinum in sales.

Scoring their sixth Top 2 single are Maroon 5 who have been in the No.2 as a peak on five occasions with one track (“She Will Be Loved” in 2004) making it all the way to No.1, as the bands latest single “Memories” is up two places to a new peak of No.2, while Regard’s remix of “Ride it” by Jay Sean holds its peak of No.3, after which last weeks rebounding song for Post Malone in “Circles” swaps places with M5 this week and falls back down two spots to No.4.

The new No.1 song in New Zealand this week is the highest new entry here in the first single for U.S. rapper and vocalist Arizona Zervas called “Roxanne”, which comes in at No.5 here this week, making us and N.Z. the only two markets (so far) where the song has cracked the Top 10, while it’s at No.11 in Sweden, No.13 in Ireland and No.17 in both Norway and Canada, plus it jumps from No.42 to No.24 in the U.K. and debuts at No.34 in the U.S.A., all helped by a recent TikTok explosion of the track.

Dua Lipa holds for a second week at No.1 in Ireland with her new single “Don’t Start Now”, with the song here climbing two places to land at a new peak of No.6 (it should go higher when she’s here at the end of the month). Lizzo just issued an expanded edition of the album “Cuz I Love You” on Friday, which includes her first Top 10 single here “Good as Hell” which is down one spot to No.7, and falling three to No.8 is the Selena Gomez song “Lose You to Love Me”, followed by a two place drop to No.9 for the Dan + Shay with Justin Bieber song “10,000 Hours”, and rounding out the T10 at No.10 for a third non-consecutive week is Tones and I with “Never Seen the Rain”.
