NEW CHART FEAT - "Dance Monkey" for Tones and I is atop the ARIA Singles Chart for an eleventh straight week, becoming now the longest running No.1 song for an Aussie Act EVER in the almost 80 years of local charts (1940 to 2019).
"Dance Monkey" is now 4x▲Platinum in sales and it beats the 1971 record set by the first Daddy Cool single "Eagle Rock" which stayed at No.1 for ten straight weeks from the 28th of June, 1971 until the end of August. And with only eleven weeks left of the year (and decade), nothing else can hold the top spot for this long again. The Tones song is also again at the top in Norway (9th week), Ireland (7th week), Denmark, New Zealand (both 5th week), Finland, Austria, France (4th week), Belgium, Switzerland, The Netherlands, England (all 2nd week) and returns to the summit in Germany for a second week and is again at No.2 in Sweden. The song also climbs in Canada (26 to No.19), Bulgaria (27 to No.21) and debuts in Portugal (#48).
The current No.1 song for Tones and I is also the equal ninth longest running No.1 song (1940 to 2019) in Australian Chart History, tying with "Mull of Kintyre" by Wings (1978), "(Everything I Do) I Do it For You" by Bryan Adams (1991), "Wannabe" by The Spice Girls (1996) and the last eleven week stay was last years Drake track "God's Plan" (2018); and for this current decade "Dance Monkey" is also equal with the Drake song as the fourth-longest running No.1 for the 2010's (2010-2019). Plus with this only having nine No.1 songs for the year (so far) this year is currently sitting at equal with 1999 as the year with the least amount of No.1 songs, but as I said earlier there are still eleven weeks of this year left.
Last weeks Top 9 songs were all on hold, this week it's just the top two tracks which hold their positions, with Post Malone at No.2 for a fifth straight week with his track "Circles", bringing his total of weeks sitting at No.2 at 31 weeks, made up from his current No.2 track plus his former hits "Wow." (2019, 1 week #2), "Better Now" (2018, 6 weeks at #2), "Psycho" (2018, 8 weeks at #2, then 1 week at #1), "Sunflower" (6 weeks at #2, 3 weeks at #1), "I Fall Apart" (2017, 2 weeks at #2), "Rockstar" (2017, 3 weeks at No.2 after weeks at #1).
The fifteenth Top 100 entry and now third Top 10 entry for U.S. singer and rapper Travis Scott debuts at No.3 in Australia this week entitled "Highest in the Room", which also becomes his highest charting single here, with the song coming in at No.2 in New Zealand, England and Norway and No.3 in Ireland. His previous highest charting single was the No.6 track "Sicko Mode" with Drake (peaked early Feb 2019, TW-65 and 62 weeks charted), while he is also featured on other current entries by Post Malone (TW-60, "Take What You Want") and Young Thug (TW-91, "The London").
Debuting right behind that new Travis Scott track and coming in at No.4 is "10,000 Hours" by country duo Dan + Shay who've teamed up with Justin Bieber (and all of their wives in the video clip) for a country/pop ballad which gives Dan + Shay their second ever chart entry and first Top 10 placing in Australia. They charted previously with "Tequila" (HP-69, 2018), and for Justin this becomes his 16th Top 10 placing in Australia and first since he hit No.1 with a duet alongside Ed Sheeran on "I Don't Care" (20th of May, 2019, TW-19) 22 weeks ago.
Another pop-country fusion occurs at No.5 as the Marshmello and Kane Brown track "One Thing Right" which is down a place from it's peak last week, while the current Canadian No.1 single (7th week) in "Senorita" by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello drops to its lowest position here so far, sliding three places to No.6. Maroon 5 debuted three weeks ago with "Memories", which this week jumps up five places to land at a new peak of No.7, becoming the bands twelfth Top 10 single in Australia since they first hit the top with "She Will Be Loved" in 2004, which was spending it's fifth and final week at the top this week in that year.
Blanco Brown just issued his new album on Friday called "Honeysuckle & Lightning Bus", and his current Top 10 track "The Git Up" along with Ed Sheeran and Khalid's entry "Beautiful People" both fall down three places each to No.8 and No.9 respectively, plus they are both newly certified as 2x▲Platinum in sales.
