"Dance Monkey" for local singer Tones and I sits atop the ARIA Singles Chart for a seventh straight week, while it's also on top of the charts in Norway (6th wk), Ireland (3rd wk), Finland and Denmark (2nd week each).
The song also loses it's top spot in New Zealand after a single week, falling to No.2, while it's also placed in that position in Sweden and Austria, plus No.3 in both Belgium and Germany, No.4 in France and rises in The Netherlands (#13), England (31 to No.19) and Canada (86 to No.52), and the song racks up a 3x▲Platinum sales certification here this week, the only new cert. for the week too.
The song "Dance Monkey" also becomes the longest running No.1 single be an Australian Female singer (solo or duo) since Kylie Mingoue's first single "Locomotion" (7 weeks from 10-Aug, 1987), and it is now the equal second longest running No.1 song performed by an Aussie Female act, the longest being the Olivia Newton-John duet with John Travolta from the 'Grease' soundtrack in "You're the One That I Want" (9 broken weeks from 26th of June, 1978). The current No.1 song also becomes the 50th track to notch up seven weeks at No.1 in Australia (since 1940). For this decade there are only two songs sung with female lead vocals that have spent longer at the top of the charts, with Tones and I tying with Adele's "Someone Like You" (2011) which also logged seven weeks at No.1, while ahead are "Roar" by Katy Perry (2013) and "Closer" by The Chainsmokers and Halsey (2016, as she had the majority of the vocals on that track, IMO), both songs racking up nine weeks at No.1 each. Plus the current No.1 song is the equal eighth longest running No.1 song for the decade alongside other seven week runners in "Thrift Shop" (2012), "Love Yourself" (2015), "One Dance" (2016), "Say You Won't Let Go" (2016) and the last seven week runner "Rockstar" for Post Malone (2017).
Speaking of Post Malone, his debut from last week in "Circles" jumps up three places to a new peak of No.2 (the only new peak in the entire Top 100 this week), plus the song jumped to No.1 in New Zealand, all helped by his third studio album "Hollywood's Bleeding" debuting at the top of our charts, while the new P.M. set also pulls in thirteen more tracks from the album to the rest of the Top 100, while the new albums' third release in "Goodbyes" returns to the Top 10 and it's former peak of No.5 this week, back up six places for a second stay at that chart height and a ninth week within the Top 10.
Back to it's lowest position of No.3 for a second time (ever) is "Senorita" for Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello (#1 in Canada for a third week), while stuck at it's peak of No.4 for a seventh week is the Ed Sheeran and Khalid track "Beautiful People", with Ed logging a third week at the top in England with "Take Me Back to London". Lil' Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus' "Old Town Road" drops three places to No.6 and logs its 23rd week inside the Top 10, making it the equal fourth longest Top 10 run of all time, and with Billie Eilish leaving the Top 10 this week with "Bad Guy", both tracks are now at 23 weeks within the ten.
Holding at it's peak of No.7 for a second week is the Marshmello and Kane Brown track "One Thing Right", while after a couple of weeks at a peak of No.6 the other T10-Brown track in "The Git Up" by Blanco Brown is back down two places to No.8. Lil' Tecca and his track "Ran$om" are stable at No.9 again this week, while the second track returning the Top 10 this week is "Piece of Your Heart" by both MeduZa and Goodboys (HP-7, WI10-9), which rises two places to land at No.10.
UP: * Sam Smith rises back up two places to No.12 with "How Do You Sleep?" (HP-11), and with a new remix issued on Friday it might eventually climb into the Top 10 for the first time soon. * The new Post Malone album also boosts the previously issued singles from the album, the first of which was the initial No.1 song of 2019 and "Sunflower" with Swae Lee, which rebounds fifteen places to land at No.14, while the albums second issued single "Wow." leaps back up twenty-one spots to No.34 (the third and fourth songs from the album are both within the Top 5 this week). * The second week at No.1 for the Lizzo track "Truth Hurts" occurs in the U.S.A. this week, while here it is back up a couple of places to No.21. * The former No.15 track for Lil' Nas X and "Panini" rebounds this week twelves places to No.41. * The Megan Thee Stallion track "Hot Girl Summer" (HP-64) is back up one spot to No.65, while the semi-parodic version by rapper blackbear is the lowest new entry this week at No.96.
DOWN: * Two songs leave the Top 10 this week in the long running "Bad Guy" for Billie Eilish (HP-1x2, WI10-23), which is only down one place to No.11, and was helped along in the Top 10 by a Justin Bieber infused edition halfway through it's chart run, while the second track to leave is the Taylor Swift song "Lover" (HP-3, WI10-2), dropping seven places to No.15. * Ed Sheeran falls this week with "I Don't Care" (16 to No.18), "South of the Border" (39 to No.50), "Cross Me" (38 to No.53), "Perfect" (75 to No.80) and the 'Longest Charted Single' in "Shape of You" (93 to it's lowest position so far of No.95, 140 weeks within the Top 100). * Like two weeks ago when Taylor Swift debuted with a heap of tracks, the same occurs with the mass of Post Malone entries this week, thus climbing songs fall back a little this week, and the 5SOS track "Teeth" is down three to No.20, while they also fall with "Easier" (44 to No.61) and "Youngblood" (58 to No.63). The boys appeared and sang their latest song on James Corden's 'The Late, Late Show' on Friday night (screened here), so that could re-boost the track back up next week. * Alie Gatie is down four places to No.22 with "It's You". * Tones and I is back down to three songs within the Top 100 after last weeks tally of five entries, dropping this week are "Never Seen the Rain" (22 to No.25) and "Johnny Run Away" (26 to No.37). * Ariana Grande falls six places to No.26 with "Boyfriend", while she is also at the end of the chart with "7 Rings" (96 to No.100), and will most likely be joined next week by her Friday issued duet with Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey for the 'Charlie's Angels' theme song "Don't Call Me Angel". * Guy Sebastian falls down five places to No.29 with his recent Top 10 entry "Choir". * Further falling Taylor Swift tracks this week are "You Need to Calm Down" (19 to No.31), "The Man" (30 to No.55), "Cruel Summer" (35 to No.73), "ME!" (50 to No.75), "I Forgot That You Existed" (52 to No.90) and also departs with seven songs, one of which is the highest dropout of the week in "Paper Rings" (#59). * Falling down again is the Kygo and Whitney Houston cover of "Higher Love", down seven to No.38. * Drake and Rick Ross drop ten places to No.43 with "Money in the Grave", while Drake is also down on the Travis Scott rebounded track from last week in "Sicko Mode" (54 to No.67). * With the soundtrack to 'A Star is Born' leaving the Top 10 this week, the lead single from the album in "Shallow" for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper falls ten places to No.44. * Illy descends eleven spots this week to No.47 with "Then What", and is down six to No.78 on the Hilltop Hoods track "Exit Sign". * Khalid falls this week on "Eastside" with Benny Blanco (41 to No.46), "Right Back" (42 to No.49), "Talk" (62 to No.69) and "Better" (82 to No.85), while he is stable at No.97 on his "Lovely" duet with Billie Eilish. * Shawn Mendes tumbles twelve places to No.52 with his track "If I Can't Have You". * Bazzi flies down eleven places to No.56 with his song "I.F.L.Y.". * The Chainsmokers fall with their tracks "Takeaway", down ten spots to No.58, and slide down seven places to No.84 with "Call You Mine". * Katy Perry leaves the Top 50 and falls down sixteen places to No.59 with "Never Really Over", while her most recent entry "Small Talk" (HP-33) leaves the Top 100 after only four weeks of charting. * The OneRepublic song "Rescue Me" tumbles down eighteen places to No.64. * Drax Project just issued their self-titled album, and their current chart entry "Woke Up Late" falls down ten spots this week to No.66. * Plummeting twenty-one spots to No.68 is the rapper NF with his tune "Time".* Young Thug drops thirteen spots to No.74 with "The London". * Andy Grammer is down seven places to No.81 with "Don't Give Up on Me". * This week the Ruel entry "Painkiller" tumbles twenty places to No.83, but with his just issued EP on Friday the song should/could rebound back up the charts next week. * After peaking at No.64 last week the Sam Feldt track called "Post Malone" tumbles back down twenty two places this week to No.86. * Amy Shark swims down eight places to No.88 with "Mess Her Up". * Jorja Smith's three week old entry "Be Honest" falls down again this week, dropping seven to No.92. * After a rebound last week the Avicii and Aloe Blacc song "SOS" is again down nine places to No.99.

The albums first four releases are also upon the charts this week too in "Sunflower" (HP-1, 29 to No.14), "Wow." (HP-2, 55 to No.34), "Goodbyes" (HP-5, 11 to No.5) and last weeks entry "Circles" (5 to No.2), making all seventeen songs from the album charting this week. Of the many guest acts on the new Post Malone album, he helps to give Ozzy Osbourne his first ever singles chart appearance too on the No.30 entry "Take What You Want", as Ozzy has only ever been an albums chart performer here.
* #42 - Liar by Camila Cabello * #62 - Shameless by Camila Cabello are the first two tracks lifted from the forthcoming second album called "Romance" (no date known as yet) for the U.S. singer, who is also currently charting as a guest vocalist on the recent No.1 single for Shawn Mendes in "Senorita" (TW-3) and the Ed Sheeran track "South of the Border" (HP-14, TW-50). Overall these two new entries are her thirteenth and fourteenth Top 100 entries in Australia.
* #96 - Hot Girl Bummer by blackbear is the first entry for the U.S. rapper, singer and producer who was born Matthew Tyler Musto in 1990 (currently 28 years old), and this song is a semi-parody of the currently charting track "Hot Girl Summer" for Megan Thee Stallion (HP-64, TW-65).
Post Malone scores his second No.1 album in Australia this week as his third studio set "Hollywood's Bleeding" debuts at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart.
"Hollywood's Bleeding" by Post Malone becomes the 856th No.1 Album in Australia (1965 to 2019), the 706th for ARIA (1983 to 2019), the 496th album to debut at No.1 (since the first in 1976), the 18th No.1 for 2019 and also the eleventh for the Universal record subsidiary 'Republic' and their third for the year after previous chart topping albums by Ariana Grande (from February) and most recently Taylor Swift (2nd of Sept.), while the new set also entered at the top in England, Belgium, Ireland, The Netherlands and Norway (so far), and at No.2 in New Zealand (behind the local compile 'Waiata/Anthems'.
In May of 2018 Post Malone scored his first No.1 album in Australia as his second set "Beerbongs and Bentley's" (TW-12) logged two separate weeks at the top here on the 7th and again the 28th of May, which gives him now a tally of three weeks at No.1 on the top of the Aussie album charts, placing him for the first time on the tally board for 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums; 1965 to 2019' alongside other 3-week-from-2-No.1-Albums in Cream, The Living End, Sherbet and Smashing Pumpkins, while on the similar listing for this decade (2010's), he is equal 28th alongside other acts this decade who've had three weeks at the top from two No.1 albums in Kings of Leon, Katy Perry and Florence + the Machine.
This is the first time that both of the word 'Hollywood(s)' and 'Bleeding' have appeared in a No.1 album title, the previous two Top 10 'Hollywood' sets being The Beatles with "Live at the Hollywood Bowl" (HP-8, Sept., 2016 upon re-issue) and "Hollywood" for Little Birdy (HP-9, Oct., 2006), while no charting albums (that I could find) have had the word 'Bleeding' in their title, the closest being the 2005 Garbage set "Bleed Like Me" (HP-5, April 2005). The new No.1 album becomes the 303rd by an American Performer to hit the top (solo, duo, group, male or female) and is the eighth for 2019 and the third in a row by an American artist after Tool last week and Taylor Swift the prior week (and if the new Korn album enters at the top next week it'll be four in a row), while the new No.1 is also the 241st by a Solo Male Artist (local or overseas) and the sixth for 2019 and the first since Ed Sheeran spent five broken weeks at the top which finished at the end of August.
The seventh Taylor Swift album "Lover" remains at No.2 again this week, while last weeks drop down in the Ed Sheeran set "No.6 Collaborations Project" rebounds two places to No.3, followed by three of the four Top 10 debuts from last week in "Fear Inoculum" by Tool (U.S. and Canada No.1 LP this week), down three spots to No.4, the Tones and I EP "The Kids are Coming" (3 to No.5) and "Norman F**king Rockwell" for Lana Del Rey (4 to No.7). The Billie Eilish set "When We All Fall Asleep..." and the Elton John collection "Diamonds" are both down one place each to No.8 and No.9 respectively.
The two further Top 10 debuts are "K-12" for Melanie Martinez at No.6, her second studio album and entry, with her debut set "Cry Baby" peaking at No.27 in August of 2015, so this now becomes her first Top 10 entry in Australia and it also enters within the Top 10 in Ireland (#7), New Zealand, England, Scotland and The Netherlands (#8), making Australia its highest placed entry so far, while local act Mallrat sees their third EP called "Driving Music" enter at No.10, becoming their first chart entry and also first Top 10 placement.
UP: * With the new Post Malone album debuting at the top, his two older albums also move back up in "Beerbongs & Bentley's" (16 to No.12) and his first set "Stoney" (HP-5, 39 to No.36). * Dean Lewis rises back up five places to No.19 with his debut album "A Place We Knew". * With Fleetwood Mac finishing up their 2019 tour here this past week, their recent Top 10 collection in "50 Years - Don't Stop" (HP-7) rebounds forty-six places to No.23, their only rising set this week, while other rising collections are by Maroon 5 (55 to No.43), Eminem (61 to No.45), Cold Chisel (58 to No.57), Green Day (82 to No.66), The Wiggles (87 to No.67), Jason DeRulo (93 to No.78), The Killers (95 to No.83), Bon Jovi (re-enters at No.89) and Red Hot Chili Peppers (returns at No.99). * Billie Eilish and her EP "Don't Smile at Me" logs 52 weeks on the charts (one-year) and is back up six places this week to No.30. * The XXXTentacion set "?" rebounds fifteen places to No.41. * Not only do collections climb, but also current album entries rise for both Eminem in "Kamikaze" (54 to No.46) and The Wiggles set "Party Time!"
