Tones and I with her mega track "Dance Monkey" is atop the ARIA Singles Chart for a twelfth straight week, as she is now one week shy of the years longest running chart-topper in "Old Town Road" (13 weeks).
"Dance Monkey" and it's twelve weeks at the top in Australia is now the equal eight longest running No.1 song of all time in Australia (1940 to 2019), tying with last decades longest staying pinnacle-holder in the Eminem track "Lose Yourself" (2002), while she also ties with third-equal longest running No.1 of this decade in "Happy" for Pharrell Williams (2014), plus Toni and her track are now the equal longest running No.1 for a female artist (local or overseas) tying with the twelve week running song "Buttons & Bows" for Dinah Shore (1949). So she also continues to hold the crown for 'Longest Running Australian Performed No.1 Single (solo, duo or group)' and 'Longest Running Australian Performed No.1 by a Female Singer'.
The song is again at No.1 around the planet in Norway (10 weeks, the last Australian act to hit #1 in Norway was Conrad Sewell on the Kygo track "Firestone" for six weeks from mid-Dec 2014), Ireland (8th week), New Zealand (6th week), Finland, Austria, France, Sweden (returns) (all 5th week), Belgium (4th week), Switzerland, The Netherlands, England and Germany (3rd week) and is sitting at No.3 in Demark, No.15 in Canada (up from #19) and No.16 in Bulgaria (up from #21), while it was also the most streamed/played track in the world on Spotify this past week.
Post Malone continues to run around in "Circles" at No.2 for a sixth week, taking his tally of weeks in that position (overall) to now 32 weeks, while jumping up four spots to a new peak of No.3 is the Maroon 5 track "Memories" to become their sixth Top 3 (and Top 5) single in Australia and first since last years "Girls Like You" spent four weeks at No.2 in late June and up to mid-July of 2018, while this week fifteen years ago their debut album "Songs About Jane" spent a solitary week at the top in Australia (18-Oct-2004).
Last weeks Top 5 debuts are back-to-back again this week, albeit one slides back down over the other, with the Dan + Shay with Justin Bieber track "10,000 Hours" stable at its entry position of No.4 and down two places to No.5 is the Travis Scott track "Highest in the Room", which debuted at No.1 in both the U.S.A. and Canada this past week. After which is the first of three new tracks within the Top 10 this week as the dance anthem for Regard called "Ride it" gallops up five places to land at a new peak of No.6 and it gives the Kosovan DJ his first Top 10 placing in Australia (the last act from that region to make it into the Top 10 was Rita Ora with "Let You Love Me" (HP-8, early Dec 2018), she was born in Pristina before moving to England as a child).
Debuting at No.7 this week is the first taste from a forthcoming second album for Harry Styles with his new track "Lights Up", which also debuted at No.3 England, No.4 in Ireland and No.7 in New Zealand (so far) and it becomes the former 1D members second Top 10 single here and fourth Top 100 entry, while his former band mates in Zayn and Niall also have debut and bulleting tracks this week.
Down three places each are "One Right Thing" for Marshmello and Kane Brown plus "Senorita" for Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello to No.8 and No.9 respectively, while jumping up seven places to a new peak of No.10 is the rapper blackbear and his first chart entry "Hot Girl Bummer", with us and New Zealand the first two countries to make it into a Top 10 hit (it jumps from 13 to No.9 there this week).

It's a sixth and possibly final week at No.1 for Post Malone with his third album "Hollywood's Bleeding", as the set now becomes the second longest running chart-topping album for 2019.
"Hollywood's Bleeding" and it's six weeks at No.1 now places it second behind the Billie Eilish debut set "When We All Fall Asleep,..." which logged seven broken weeks at the top between April and mid-July, while it's also the longest continual run at No.1 since late October of 2018 when the soundtrack for 'A Star is Born' began a ten week run at the top until the end of the year.
Post Malone also raises his weeks at No.1 on the albums chart to now eight accumulated weeks (from two #1's) moving him up the tally board for 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1; Albums (1965 to 2019)' to rise from equal 94th to now equal 86th alongside both Janet Jackson and Offspring who've also racked up eight weeks at the top from two No.1 sets, while for this decade he is now equal ninth alongside Ariana Grande who has so far this decade racked up eight weeks at No.1 but with four different albums. This and the next week in the past have been a regular No.1 breeding ground for the Triple J compilation "Like a Version", of which the new Vol.15 was issued on Friday (volumes 9 to 13 all spent one week at the top), plus there is also a new Jessica Mauboy album out too, a former No.1 club member.
Ed Sheeran remains at No.2 with his duets package in "No.6 Collaborations Project", while down one spot to No.4 is the Taylor Swift seventh set "Lover", which is followed by two stable albums in the Tones and I EP "The Kids are Alright" and Billie Eilish's "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" at No.5 and No.6 respectively. The Beatles 1969 eleventh album in "Abbey Road" drops down three places this week to No.7 and the second Top 10 appearance for Ed Sheeran this week is with his third album "÷ (Divide)" rising back up two spots to No.8 in its 108th week inside the Top 10, while Elton John's "Diamonds" best of set is down one place to No.10, while he will be in the country in around six weeks time (Nov 30th) for his final ever tour which runs for two months locally (until the end of January 2020).
There are two albums debuting in the Top 10 this week, both by local acts, but both are vastly different in their music styles, with the highest new entry coming in at No.3 called "Awake" for local church group Hillsong Worship, which is this bands fifth studio album and entry and now their fourth Top 3/T5/T10 album as they have previously made it to No.2 three times, their last being "There is More" (mid-April of 2018). New at No.9 is the second hits compilation for local rock act Grinspoon called "Chemical Heart (Best of)", and it surpasses the No.12 debut and peak of their previous collection "Best in Show" (mid-November of 2005) and overall is now their eighth Top 10 album locally, their last being 2012's seventh and final studio album "Black Rabbits" (HP-8, October 2012).
UP: * Next week will be the one year anniversary since the soundtrack for 'A Star is Born' went to No.1 in Australia, this week it is back up three places to No.13, with other rising film-sets being for 'The Greatest Showman' (21 to No.20) and the 'Frozen' soundtrack (returns at No.96). * Post Malone rises with his two older entries in his second set "Beerbongs & Bentleys" (18 to No.15) and his first album "Stoney" (45 to No.39). * The newly re-packaged Chris Brown set "Indigo" continues to rise back up, this week up five to No.21. * With a new and second entry this week for Lewis Capaldi, his debut album "Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent" jumps back up nine spots to No.22. * Lil' Tecca rebound seven spots to No.25 with his mixtape "We Love You Tecca". * Lizzo scores another new peak this week with her set "Cuz I Love You", up four to No.26. * The fourth and self-titled Shawn Mendes album rebound ten spots to land at No.29. * Rising best of collection this week are by Eminem (55 to No.36), recently announced 2020 tourists Cold Chisel (51 to No.37), newly Top 3 singles act Maroon 5 (46 to No.38), Green Day (75 to No.61), The Wiggles (89 to No.70), Jason DeRulo (83 to a new peak of No.75), The Killers (82 to No.77), ABBA (Gold & More returns at No.79; helped back in a by a Ch.7 doco repeat this past week), Red Hot Chili Peppers (re-entry at No.81) and The Foo Fighters (90 to No.87). * Hayden James' album "Between Us" jumps back up fourteen places to No.40, while a remixed and expanded version of the album will be out next week via Future Classic. * Rapper NF rises back up six places to No.41. * Local singer Angie McMahon has just completed her recent tour (it finished in Hobart on the 19th of October) before heading off overseas in November, and her debut album "Salt" (HP-6) returned to the chart last week at No.86 and this week it sprints back up the chart forty-two places to land at No.44. * Cardi B rebounds seventeen places to land at No.46 with her set "Invasion of Privacy". * The XXXTenation album "?" is back up seven spots to No.50. * Taylor Swift's older entries rise back up this week in "1989" (60 to No.52) and "Reputation" (65 to No.63). * ChillinIt and his debut set "Women, Weed & Wordplay" jumps back up nineteen spots to No.54 ahead of his second album coming out soon called "The Octagon" (no date known as yet). * The Hilltop Hoods rebound nine spots to No.55 with "The Great Expanse" and are also up one spot to No.69 with their long running (146 weeks) "Drinking...
