After a slight disruption to the simulation, Mariah Carey drops out of the entire top 100 from #1 for the second year in a row, letting Tones And I return for a preposterous 22nd week at #1. I'm starting to forget if there was ever a time she wasn't at #1. Dua Lipa is #2 for a 3rd time now, but she won't be getting to #1 next week. She's also running out of time as The Weeknd is climbing fast with "Blinding Lights" which now hits #7. MEDUZA were quite a bit shy of their UK #2 peak for "Piece Of My Heart" here, but they've matched "Lose Control"'s #11 peak, they're also in the country right now. Speaking of UK comparisons, despite a seemingly endless chart run, "Someone You Loved" is actually lower here than the UK despite having ACR over there. After debuting on the same week, "HIGHEST IN THE ROOM" quickly fell behind "10,000 Hours" but now is back ahead for the first time in months thanks solely to ROSALIA's impact. In more big hit news, "Sunflower" now has the most successful top 50 chart run on linear points, overtaking "Shape Of You" despite still having 17 less weeks in the top 50. "Eastside" is just 6 weeks away from matching both Ed Sheeran songs with their record 80 weeks in the top 50. And speaking of those two Ed Sheeran songs, "Shape Of You" is ahead of "Perfect" on the chart for the first time in over 2 years. This is not traditionally a busy week for new arrivals, last year only Post Malone's "Wow." entered the top 50 on the first chart of the year. This week there are 5 new entries, predominantly from dance acts, with Riton, Oliver Heldens & Joel Corry scoring their first top 50 entries (though I will note that "Rinse & Repeat", "Fake ID" & "Ginger" were all fairly popular on triple j, while "Gecko (Overdrive)" was a top 100 hit). Sofi Tukker also score their 2nd top 50 hit, though just like their previous weeks in the top 100 with "Purple Hat" it comes with a potential asterisk as Roddy Ricch's "The Box" is absent in vintage ARIA fashion. Don Toliver cracks the top 50 after behind held back by Christmas festivities, and of course BENEE finally has a top 50 hit with "Glitter", which as I have mentioned before, should have charted weeks ago but maybe they were saving it up to be the first new entry of the decade. That doesn't explain why platinum selling (and all around excellent) "Soaked" was never let on the chart, I'm forever salty about that. As Don Toliver debuted a few weeks ago, he becomes one of the elite few artists to have scored top 100 hits in the 2010s and the 2020s, alongside Young Thug, Travis Scott, Sheck Wes & The Rubens. The latter's single was released over a month ago, but as per usual, their success is astroturfed heavily by Hot Hits Australia picking up the song belatedly. Also noteworthy in the re-entries is BROCKHAMPTON's "SUGAR", which is not yet on Hot Hits Australia but amazingly looks like it'll be cracking the top 50 next week, and they're in the country right now as well, I'm stoked to see them on Friday.

3 weeks into Harry Styles' chart run for his self-titled album, he was down to #4, this time around he's back at #1, assumably due to lack of competition as Billie Eilish is up to #2 on her 40th week, she may be a strong contender for EOY #1 when that's posted. Travis Scott's "JACKBOYS" project becomes his 2nd highest charting release at #5. The Chainsmokers narrowly score a new peak thanks to reduced competition, though it's worth noting that despite the mass Christmas exodus, Robbie Williams remains in the top 50, and Michael Buble in the top 100.

I'm a little skeptical as her lead is slipping a bit, and she's not climbing fast enough in the US to compensate by way of newsworthy global success ("Somebody That I Used To Know" went from out of the top 50 to back in the top 20 in the midst of its US success). The Hottest 100 is a couple weeks away and while I don't think she's a sure bet for #1, she'll poll highly and there isn't any other contender I can imagine would be boosted ahead of her ("Thrift Shop" won in 2012 but only held on at #2 on the ARIA Chart that week because "Same Love" was ahead of it on ARIA and still polled in the top 20). Similarly, "Sex On Fire" was such an overplayed hit by the time it won that it actually dropped on the chart. It's hard to fathom people just discovering "Dance Monkey" from the countdown and buying it in response laugh.gif The way he's climbing, The Weeknd might be able to get there in a couple of weeks, but maybe Roddy Ricch could blow up ahead as well, he's currently #15 on Spotify.

Australia & New Zealand seem to be consistently BROCKHAMPTON's 2nd/3rd biggest markets (behind the US obvz) for some reason, looking at Kworb history the TikTok-fuelled return of 'SUGAR' has had a near identical run on Australian Spotify as it has on US Spotify (and it's doing slightly better in New Zealand where it's hit its highest position in any country so far at #23). Here's hoping it can go on to become a relatively big hit at least in Oceania where lack of radio airplay can't hold it back ~ Maybe this is why they decided to perform in Oceania before coming to the UK tongue.gif

edit: I made a joke about Tones And I here but I'm removing it as it was a little in poor taste xx

triple j has been a big proponent for BROCKHAMPTON I think. They featured "SATURATION II" in late 2017 (ie playing assorted tracks from it 10 times a day for a week) and the reception was really good -> "SWEET" was voted 11th best song of the year (and 2nd highest not from AU/NZ).

Tones is doing a bushfire benefit concert later this month magic.gif Obviously would be a better PM than what we have right now.

I'll support Tones for PM if it means she stops making music magic.gif xx

And I see, that makes sense then - Triple J bringing the taste.

Now time for your weekly Tones And I update, in which there is nothing to be noted for the 23rd week because the weeks at #1 record is considerably locked up. What is absurd about it all is that there are only 12 singles that have even spent this long in the top 10. I am fairly certain she'll retain the #1 spot next week, but the week after will see things heating up. Presently there's a 6 song logjam on the Spotify chart all within about 4% of the #1 spot. Of them, probably only "Roxanne" is out of the race, though Dua Lipa considerably lacks momentum in her 4th week at #2. Perhaps the most likely bets are The Weeknd, who is up to #3 this week and has the strong sales his competitors lack, and Roddy Ricch who has the fastest streaming momentum and I can see him soaring ahead of the pack. His sales however are lackluster. The other contender is Justin Bieber. The #8 debut for "Yummy" perhaps seems underwhelming, but it's the latest showing in how Spotify's platform slows down new releases in Australia. Not only do our top 50 charts update a day late because of time zones, but the people running our curated playlists can be very behind the pulse. While major releases can occasionally get an instant Hot Hits Australia add, it took several days before Justin was put right at the top, and as a result, he has been perpetually climbing every day since release (whereas he has been descending pretty much every day in the US). Things are not as concerning as in New Zealand where he looks to have the #1 spot locked next week, but he's on the way to a big climb next week. The important thing this week is BROCKHAMPTON scoring their first top 40 hit (though it feels weird when Joba & Merlyn don't have verse, I learnt last week that Merlyn clearly got the biggest reaction whenever he was center stage). They're set for a big climb next week as well. The Chainsmokers help contribute to my adage that nearly every at least moderately well known female singer in Australia will have their biggest success alongside a producer or a rapper. Not that I expect "The Reaper" to get as high as "Adore" or "I Said Hi", but maybe it'll get a higher Spotify total worldwide.

It's a dead week on the album chart with not a single debut in the entire top 100. Harry Styles thus is able to score a 3rd week at #1 though with very low figures. Helped by a recent tour, Lewis Capaldi manages to score a new peak with his album that originally debuted at #10. Stormzy even is showing impressive longevity with his latest album returning to its debut position, though unluckily alongside his first album, he's now spent 3 weeks at #11 without a top 10 peak. In general it looks like pure sales from the holiday season have died out and so anything and everything that thrives on streaming is having a good week. Next week we'll see how high Selena Gomez can get, with her personal bar set at #3 with 2015's "Revival".

Nah, as I said, Tones has next week's chart locked up. The week after is less certain, and I can't put Bieber out of the equation, but I think Roddy Ricch is going to leap ahead of him. But then I keep expecting Bieber's streams to top out but they just haven't yet. Suffice to say it's too early to judge a tracking week that hasn't even started laugh.gif

24 weeks at #1 for "Dance Monkey". 2 years ago, 24 weeks was the record for weeks spent in the top 10. However, this week comes with the possibly incredulous news that a change is gonna come. The Weeknd rises to #2 to score his 3rd #2 hit with "Blinding Lights", following the unlucky runs with "Can't Feel My Face" and "Starboy", the latter spending a record holding 11 weeks at #2. Interestingly, The Weeknd's closest bid for #1 was actually with "The Hills", which upon the release of the remixes, shot up to #3, but there were less than 1000 sales between #1 & #4 that week. With a big digital gain this week and steady streaming progress, I very much believe that "Blinding Lights" will take the #1 spot next week. As is often the case with long lasting reigns, Tones might not even just drop to #2 because I see Roddy Ricch taking up that slot. Justin Bieber climbs to #4 which looks to be his peak as the declines are setting in hard now. Speaking of Justin Bieber though, this week we have yet another Canadian megastar having their debut week slacking because of Australian Spotify things. Future alongside Drake scores his 2nd highest charting single to date (behind "Mask Off") with "Life Is Good", but it looks like it could become his highest charter next week as it has a proper full week. Notably among the debuts, Mac Miller scores his first ever lead artist top 50 hit, having previously made #37 alongside Ariana Grande on "The Way". His only previous lead artist entries were top 100 peaks for "Dang!" and "Self Care", the latter getting through posthumously (although come Hottest 100 voting, "Ladders" proved itself the most popular track). We also have another shocking sight as an up and coming Australian rap group is actually counted on the chart. Fueled in part by TikTok, No Money Enterprise's "German" enters the chart with so little care that ARIA haven't even labelled them as Australian yet. This is not actually unprecedented, as it took several weeks before ARIA decided that Joji counts as an Australian artist, though I don't think there's anything contentious about Queensland-hailing No Money Enterprise. Lower down, Doja Cat scores her 3rd chart entry which looks a decent chance to become her first top 50. Endor's UK top 10 hit "Pump It Up" debuts and in the process, outpeaks Danzel's version which reached #84 back in the day. Something I forgot to mention last week is that "Dance Monkey" was dethroned on the Digital Tracks chart for only the 2nd time last week, as Delta Goodrem released a bushfire relief charity single in "Let It Rain", which immediately shot to #1 on iTunes by a huge margin. According to ARIA's Twitter, it was left off the chart by the record label due to being a mid-week release, despite seemingly appearing on the midweek report, which itself could serve as a very telling look into ARIA's supposed rules about chart eligibility actually being untrue and thus we really do just have an incompetent industry. Anyway, it is possible that the gambit to let her have a full week of sales to debut on is for naught because she actually lost her #1 digital position this week so it's possible she could have debuted higher last week (though I imagine her streaming figures were higher this week).

We have our first new #1 album of the decade and it comes from Selena Gomez. As I mentioned last week, her highest peak before this was #3. Elton John also climbs back to #4 thanks to his local tour. There's also more bushfire relief, as in the most on brand action possible, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have released 3 live albums for charity. The 3rd one was released a little later than the first two, which become their 8th & 9th top 10 albums, all of which have been achieved within the last 3 years. Also in the country is Lizzo who scores a new top 20 peak for her album. Next week looks to be relatively busy but I'd hesitate to call it competitive. Eminem is probably a lock for the #1 spot, with Halsey & Mac Miller coming up behind.
