It's a thirteenth week at No.1 for the fused rap/country track "Old Town Road" for Lil' Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus, the song now the equal second longest running No.1 song for this decade.
"Old Town Road" now ties with 2017's "Despacito" for Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber (22-May to 14-Aug, 2017) as the equal second longest No.1 span for this decade, while in the overall scheme of No.1 songs from 1940 to today, "Old Town Road" is now the equal 14th longest running No.1 of all time in Australia, tying with "Hey Jude"/"Revolution" for The Beatles (1968), "Gangsta's Paradise" for Coolio (1995) and the already mentioned "Despacito". For Billy Ray this is now his 20th overall week at No.1 from his two chart-toppers, moving him on the list of 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Singles (1940 to 2019)' to equal 35th alongside 50's crooner Eddie Fisher (20 weeks from seven No.1 songs). The song again retains it's lead on the digital sales chart here (it's at No.3 on the streaming chart) and stays at the top in both America (15th week) and Canada (14th week).
It's a fourth week of waiting for the top spot for the Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello duet "Senorita", stable at No.2 nationally (#2 digital and #1 streamed), while it holds for a fourth week at the summit in Ireland and third week in New Zealand, after which is a rebounding former No.1 song in "Bad Guy" for Billie Eilish, which climbs back up three places to No.3 after a duet of the song between Billie and Justin Bieber was issued last Friday, pushing the song back up to No.2 on the streaming chart (#9 on the digital chart).
With the fourth studio album for Ed Sheeran naturally taking out the top spot on the albums chart this week, he has ten debuts and twelve tracks outside of the Top 10 this week, but his albums initial three releases are all within the Top 10 this week, with the albums third release "Beautiful People" with Khalid stable at it's peak of No.4 (and it climbs to No.1 in England this week), followed by the sets first single in "I Don't Care" with Justin Bieber, which moves down two places to No.5, while the second issued song in "Cross Me" with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock (HP-5) rebounds back up seven places to No.7 for a seventh week within the Top 10 after leaving for one week; last week.
The highest new entry from last week was the new Post Malone track "Goodbyes" with Young Thug, which dips a single spot to No.6 this week, while climbing two places to a new peak of No.8 is the Tones and I track "Dance Monkey", which is also the first of four new certifications this week and is now Gold (●) in sales, plus she issued her third single on Friday called "Never Seen the Rain". The second and final Australian act within the Top 10 is right behind Tones in the Guy Sebastian single "Choir", which is down two places to No.9, followed by the Lewis Capaldi ballad "Someone You Loved", also dipping two spots to land at No.10.

NEW ENTRIES: * #11 - Antisocial by Ed Sheeran feat. Travis Scott * #14 - South of the Border by Ed Sheeran feat. Camila Cabello & Cardi B. * #15 - Remember the Name by Ed Sheeran feat. Eminem & 50 Cent * #29 - Take Me Back to London by Ed Sheeran feat. Stormzy * #48 - Put it All on Me by Ed Sheeran feat. Ella Mai * #50 - Way Back to My Heart by Ed Sheeran feat.

H.E.R. * #65 - Nothing on You by Ed Sheeran feat. Paulo Londra & Dave are all taken from the fourth studio and new No.1 album in Australia called "No.6 Collaborations Project", and with five previous entries from the album, it means that all fifteen songs from the album are now within the Top 100, twelve of which are sitting within the Top 50. Back on March 13th of 2017 Ed placed sixteen songs from this third album "÷ (Divide)" (TW-8) all within the Top 40 in one week, so this weeks fifteen tracks in the Top 100 and twelve in the Top 50 is less than his last album, but still a feat in itself. There are the three Top 100 entries this week for Camila Cabello (#2, #11 and #57), Travis Scott (#11, #46 and #81) and Young Thug (#6, #46 and #54); the third entry overall for A Boogie wit da Hoodie and also the now highest charted single for Stormzy, whose first entry here "Vossi Bop" peaked at No.34 and is down five to No.70 this week.

It's a fourth consecutive No.1 album in Australia for Ed Sheeran as his new album "No.6 Collaborations Project" debuts at the top here and also in New Zealand, Belgium, The Netherlands, Ireland, Norway, Scotland, Sweden and in his home country of England (so far).
"No.6 Collaborations Project" becomes the 852nd No.1 Album in Australia (1965 to 2019), the 702nd for ARIA (1983 to 2019), the 492nd to debut at No.1 (1986 to 2019), the fourteenth No.1 of 2019 and the fifth for the record label Asylum, with their last being Ed's third set "÷ (Divide)" (#800th No.1 album in Oz, started 13-March in 2017, for 27 weeks in total).
Ed's first album "+ (Positive)" (TW-68) spent a single week at the top on the 13th of August, 2012, after which his second set "x (Multiply)" (TW-36) logged six runs and eight weeks at No.1 (from 30th of June, 2014 until 29th of June, 2015), while his third title "÷ (Divide)" (TW-8) went on to ring up 27 weeks at No.1 from nine separate runs at the top (from 13th of March, 2017 until it's last week on 9th of April, 2018). This brings Ed's tally of weeks at the top in Australia to now 37 weeks from his four #1 albums, and on the list for 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1; Albums: 1965 to 2019' he remains at No.9, but a few more weeks at the top will move him up and past the totals for Rod Stewart (38 weeks from 7 #1's) and ABBA (39 weeks from 4 #1's), while on the similar list for this decade (2010 to 2019) his thirty-seven racked up weeks at the top holds him in second position behind Adele's 40 weeks at the summit during this decade (Ed could pass Adele in the next few weeks if he holds the top, but there's rumours of a new Adele album by the end of the year, so she could overtake him again).
It's the first time at No.1 for the words '6', 'Collaboration' and 'Project', but not for No. or even Number, as previous numbers and No.'s at the top were "Odyssey No.5" for Powderfinger (3 weeks from 11-Sept, 2000), Anthony Callea's "ARIA No.1 Hits in Symphony" (1 week on 18-Sept, 2017) and the two numbers were "Colour by Numbers" for Culture Club (7 broken weeks from 24-Oct, 1983) and earlier in that same year The Beatles with "The Number Ones" (1 week on 20-June, 1983).
"No.6 Collaborations Project" has seen all fifteen of it's tracks chart this week, three already embedded in the chart, two entered last week and the remaining ten enter this week. Ed's previous five collaborations projects were EP's, with his fifth volume containing eight tracks, most notable with guests Wiley and rapper P Money, while this new set has more major artists like Khalid, Eminem, 50 Cent, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Skirllex among them.
The new No.1 album also becomes the 155th No.1 album by an English act (solo, duo, group, male or female) and the third for 2019 after chart-topping sets by Queen (Jan) and Bring Me the Horizon (Feb), while the new No.1 is the 240th by a Solo Male Artist (local or overseas) and the fifth for this year after previous solo male acts at the summit like Dean Lewis (April), Conrad Sewell (May), Jimmy Barnes and Bruce Springsteen (both in June), with the last (new) solo English artist at the top being the self-titled Harry Styles set (22-May, 2017), although Ed did regain the top spot after Harry for a further sixteen weeks until his last appearance at the top on the 9th of April, 2018. The Solo English Male artists with the most weeks at No.1 are listed below.
English Solo Male Artists (most weeks at No.1) 1 - 38 weeks - Rod Stewart (7 #1 albums) 2 - 37 weeks - Ed Sheeran (4 #1 albums) 3 - 30 weeks - Elton John (7 #1 albums) 4 - 17 weeks - John Lennon (4 #1 albums) 5 - 13 weeks - James Blunt (2 #1 albums) 6 - 12 weeks - Robbie Williams (4 #1 albums) 7 - 11 weeks - Joe Cocker (2 #1 albums) 8 - 10 weeks - Paul McCartney (& Wings) (2 #1 albums) 9 - 8 weeks - George Harrison (1 #1 album) 10 - 7 weeks - David Bowie (3 #1 albums)
Whatever albums were issued the same week that a new Ed Sheeran album came out, were not going to beat him to the top, but the Angus Stone side project called Dope Lemon has debuted at No.2 with the second album under that moniker called "Smooth Big Cat", which is their first Top 10, surpassing the No.11 peak of the first release "Honey Bones" (peaked late June of 2016), with this new album also charting in Germany (#44) so far, and coming in at No.1 on this weeks vinyl chart (new Ed was at #2), while overall this is the fourth solo project for Angus to chart, as he also released the solo album "Broken Brights" (HP-2, July 2012) and under another pseudonym of Lady of the Sunshine whose album "Smoking Gun" made it to No.45 back in mid-April of 2009.
After seven broken weeks at No.1 the Billie Eilish debut album "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" falls down two spots this week to No.3, while also dipping two places apiece are Elton John's "Diamonds" collection and P!nk with her "Hurts 2B Human" set to No.5 and No.6 respectively. I've already mentioned that Ed Sheeran's third album "÷ (Divide)" is at No.8 this week (on hold too) and climbing back up into the Top 10 for a 30th week inside the ten is the Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper soundtrack for 'A Star is Born' (13 to 9).
Local Australian artist Thelma Plum sees her debut studio album called "Better in Blak" enter at No.4 this week thanks to it's massive Triple J play and also her promo tour around the country this week, after which another local artist in the rapper AllDay places his third studio album into the chart at No.7 called "Starry Night Over the Phone", which becomes his third Top 10 album and fourth overall entry, as he previously charted with "Loners are Cool" (EP#2, HP-18, April 2013), then "Startup Cult" (LP#1, HP-3, July 2014) and his last entry was "Speeding" (HP-6, May 2017), with guests on his new set including The Veronicas and Japanese Wallpaper.
The fifth and final new entry debut this week is the soundtrack to the "live-action" remake from Disney of their 1994 animated classic "The Lion King", coming in at No.10 first week. This new version features voicework and singing by Beyoncé, Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino), Seth Rogan, Billy Eichner, John Oliver and the original songs written by Elton John and Tim Rice and producer by Hans Zimmer and Pharrell Williams, while there was a surprise release album on Friday of extra tracks and non-film songs by the above artists called "The Lion King: The Gift". The original soundtrack from August of 1994 initially debuted within the Top 30 and took three weeks to climb into the Top 10, peaking at No.3 in mid-October and logging ten weeks within the Top 10.
UP: * Following on from last weeks conference and gathering for Hillsong, their album "People" climbs again this week, up ten spots to No.23. * The Fleetwood Mac tour will be on our shores in three weeks time, starting in Perth, and their 1977 classic album "Rumours" is back up three spots to No.38, it's first time back within the Top 40 since it hit No.35 in early May of 2017, while their 'Longest Charted Album' in "The Very Best of" (507 weeks) is on hold at No.85. * Eminem rises a few places with both of his entries in "Kamikaze" (43 to 41) and his collection "Curtain Call: The Hits" (47 to 44), with further barely-rising best of sets being for Green Day (76 to 75) and Bon Jovi (stable at #87). * The debut set and former No.1 for Conrad Sewell called "LIFE" rebounds thirteen spots to No.48. * Jonas Brothers see their first rise up the charts with "Happiness Begins", back up six to No.50 this week. * Both entries for The Wiggles rise back up two places each, with their 52nd album "Party Time!" climbing to No.60 and their long-running "The Best of" (156 weeks) up to No.78. * Last weeks debut of the soundtrack for Season 3 of 'Stranger Things' is this week up four places to a new peak of No.69, while the first season soundtrack (HP-51) returns to the chart at No.89, with further film albums returning for 'Frozen' (#84) and 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.1' (#86). * Guns N' Roses' "Appetite for Destruction" rebounds nine spots to No.83. * The two further returning albums this week are the second set for Adele "21" (#93) and "Damn." (#100) by Kendrick Lamar.
DOWN: * There are six albums leaving the Top 10 this week, first is one of last weeks returning sets "Free Spirit" (HP-2, WI10-13, 10 to #11) for Khalid, then the "7" EP (HP-5x2, WI10-3, 5 to #12) for Lil' Nas X, "Indigo" (HP-3, WI10-2, 6 to #13) by Chris Brown, the soundtrack for the Queen biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (HP-1x3, WI10-31, 9 to 14), former No.1 set "Western Stars" (HP-1x1, WI10-4, 7 to #17) by Bruce Springsteen and last weeks highest new entry of "Revenge of the Dreams III" (HP-2, WI10-1, 2 to #22, #1 in America and Canada this week) by Dreamville and J.

I feel it's a bit more low key this time due to the nature of the project. I think Ed should have his entire album in the top 100 but maybe 'only' 9 tracks in the top 50 (as well as probably only getting as high as #3 on singles). What I'm most fascinated is that it's possible he'll have the *only* debuts on the entire chart this week haha.
Next Tracks: 106 - Stay Awake - Dean Lewis 109 - Rodeo - Lil' Nas X 111 - Solid Gold - Pnau 112 - 7 Mins - Dean Lewis 113 - Ocean Eyes - Billie Eilish 115 - Sat Nights - Khalid 116 - Africa - Toto 118 - Homicide - Logic & Eminem 119 - Say You Wont Let Go - James Arthur 120 - Going Bad - Meek Mill & Drake 124 * Talk it Out - Matt Corby & Tash Sultana 126 * Can You Feel the Love Tonight - Beyonce 131 * Thing for You - David Guetta & Martin Solveig 146 * Spirit (from The Lion King) - Beyonce 147 * Time - NF 177 - Redbone - Childish Gambino (LW-256) 198 * Heavy Hearted - Jungle Giants 204 * Clumsy Love - Thelma Plum 239 - This is America - Childish Gambino (LW-354) 300 * Don't Let a Good Girl Down - Thelma Plum 321 * King of Kings - Hillsong Worship 347 * Circle of Life / Nanats' Ingonyama - Lindiwe Mkhize 416 * Harder - Jax Jones 417 * Contaminated - Banks 457 * Blessing - Jessica Mauboy 464 * Hey You - Dope Lemon 482 * Like a Rodeo - Kane Brown
^ Not really. They're stable at best compared to 3-4 weeks ago and have dropped compared to mid February. For instance, #22 digitally sold 680 units this week compared to 961 units for the same position on the chart of February 18th. Similarly, #37 sold 410 units this week compared to 504 for #38 in mid-February.
It's a bit crazy to think that this week's Old Town Road digital sales, which are good in the current climate, would have been barely enough to rank at #35 five years ago. Last edited:
Definitely the nature of the project is relevant (Ed Sheeran strikes me as an artist who would lose sales because of Cardi B or Travis Scott features, rather than gain them like many artists would) but I feel the exceptional status of his last album can't be understated either. It had the biggest & 3rd biggest singles of the year in tow, presently at #1 and #2 on the charts when the album dropped, which is completely unheard of otherwise. The former of those is literally the best charting single of all time, with nothing even close to matching it except...another song on that album
Albums sales have dropped a lot since 2017 too. The #1 selling album sold less than 1k copies last week.
Not to mention that Divide had hits like that could appeal the AC target which is / was still buying albums. The No. 6 Collaborations Project appeals a younger audience who stream music and does not buy it.
