Equalling this week the 2017 achievement by Ed Sheeran of spending 15 weeks at No.1 on the ARIA Singles Chart is the Tones and I track "Dance Monkey".
And "Dance Monkey" is at No.1 again in Norway (13 weeks), New Zealand (9th week), Austria, Switzerland (8th week), Belgium, Sweden (7th week), The Netherlands, England (6th week) and Germany (5th week), while it rises to new peaks of No.2 in Bulgaria, No.5 in Canada, No.12 in Portugal (up from #18) and No.41 in the U.S.A. (up from #51 last week).
The Ed Sheeran song "Shape of You" logged fifteen broken weeks at No.1 in 2017 (13 weeks and then one week off, and then a further two more weeks), while that year we had a 13 week running No.1 also in "Despacito" for Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee & Justin Bieber, and this is similar to 2019 where we've had a 13 weeks running song in "Old Town Road" for Lil' Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus and now a fifteen week runner in "Dance Monkey" for Tones and I, and with her many ARIA nominations for the Awards ceremony at the end of November, this could keep her on top for potentially 20 weeks.
"Dance Monkey" is now the equal longest running No.1 this decade tied with Ed's track, and also the equal fifth longest run at the top of the singles chart between 1940 and 2019, with the seven songs above it all achieving their long runs at the top during the 1940's, thus the current No.1 is now the equal longest running No.1 for not only ARIA, but for an Australian Female Performer, a Solo Modern-Rock-Era Female Performer and the equal longest runner for the modern-rock era (1955 onwards). If it stays again for next week it will be the outright song in that last category too.
Reclaiming it's No.2 runner-up spot for an eighth week is the Post Malone track "Circles", which now increase his #2 tally to 34 weeks in that position (from seven tracks) and also rising one place to a new peak of No.3 is the Regard remix of the Sean Paul song "Ride it", which is newly certified ▲Platinum in sales this week, followed by the Maroon 5 song "Memories", back up one spot to No.4, while last weeks No.2 entry for Selena Gomez and "Lose You to Love Me" drops back here three spots to No.5, while it jumped to No.1 in both America and Canada this past week.
Stable at its peak of No.6 for a second week is the Lizzo song "Good as Hell", followed by recent tourists here Dan + Shay with Justin Bieber and their ballad"10,000 Hours", rising back up one place to No.7. The highest new entry this week at No.8 is also new at No.2 in England and No.1 in Ireland, plus she just announced her performance on the upcoming ARIA Awards here, Dua Lipa and "Don't Start Now", which by coming in at No.8 becomes her fifth Top 10 single in Australia plus her first new Top 10 single since 2018's teaming with Calvin Harris on "One Kiss" (HP-3, June 2018) and this is also her first ever song to debut within the Top 10 too. Rapper blackbear rises back up one spot to No.9 with his track "Hot Girl Bummer", while returning to it's former peak of No.10 from two weeks ago is the Tones and I track "Never Seen the Rain" for a second week within the Top 10.

DOWN: * Two songs leave the Top 10 this week starting with "Highest in the Room" for Travis Scott (HP-3, WI10-4) down two places to No.11 and last weeks Top 10 debut for Kanye West with "Follow God" (HP-7, WI10-1) halving its position this week and falling seven spots to No.14. * With a new peak for the second Lewis Capaldi track this week, his recent US & Canadian No.1 single "Someone You Loved" is here down two spots to No.15 and now 5x▲Platinum. * Harry Styles' "Lights Up" falls five spots to No.27. * The second entry last week for Selena Gomez in "Look at Her Now" is down this week eight places to No.37. * The vast majority of falling tracks this week are those which debuted last week for Kanye West from his new album and current No.1 set "Jesus is King", falling this week are "On God" (21 to No.70), "Closed on Sunday" (19 to No.74), "Selah" (18 to No.78), "Everything We Need" (26 to No.94) and "Use This Gospel" (36 to No.99), while departing are "Every Hour" (#33, highest dropout for the week), "Water" (#37), "God is" (#39), "Hands on" (#46) and "Jesus is Lord" (#55). * I thought that with the new 'Charlie's Angels 2019' soundtrack debuting this week that there wouldn't be such a massive fall for the albums lead single in "Don't Call Me Angel" for Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey, but it tumbles down this week twenty-eight places to land at No.96, while a second single from the set enters this week, see below.
NEW ENTRIES: * #8 - Don't Stop Now by Dua Lipa

* #63 - Bad to You (from 'Charlie's Angels 2019') by Ariana Grande, Normani & Nicki Minaj is the second single from the new movie whose soundtrack debuts at No.58 this week, and it features five tracks by Ariana Grande, of which this is the second also from the new set by her to chart as eight weeks ago the first song "Don't Call Me Angel" by Ariana, Lana Del Rey and Miley Cyrus debuted and peaked at No.4.

For the first time in his No.1 chart career in Australia a Kanye West album has managed to hold on for a second week at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart.
"Jesus is King" logs its second week at the summit in Australia, while it also debuted at No.1 this past week in both America and Canada. His last No.1 set "Ye" fell to No.6 in its second week, while his first No.1 album "Yeezus" only dipped to No.2 for its second stay. This second week helps Kanye's tally of weeks at No.1 here to rise, and on the listing of 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums; 1965 to 2019' he moves from equal 157th to now equal 139th alongside Keith Urban, Justin Bieber and Slipknot who've all had three #1's and four weeks at the top, while for this decade (2010 to 2019) he climbs to equal 16th (up from equal 30th) to sit alongside Bieber, Keith and also Foo Fighters.
Stable at No.2 here is the Post Malone album "Hollywood's Bleeding", the set returning to the top in New Zealand for a seventh overall week, while also on hold at No.3 is the Ed Sheeran duets album "No.6 Collaborations Project". Rising back up within the Top 10 are "Lover" by Taylor Swift (6 to No.4), "The Kids are Coming" EP for Tones and I (8 to No.5) and the Billie Eilish set "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" (9 to No.6).
The highest new entry this week comes in at No.7 and is the ninth studio album and now first ever Top 10 placing for local singer Archie Roach, who enters with "Tell Me Why", which has 11 of his songs from throughout his career, reimagined by Archie himself, three new tracks, two previously unreleased songs and two songs which influenced his music (18 tracks in total). Archie's previously highest charted album was the No.24 peaking set "Let Love Rule" which made it to No.24 in November 2016.
Shawn Mendes' finished up his national tour here last weekend in Sydney and this has helped his self-titled repackaged fourth studio album to jump back up into the Top 10, rising five spots this week to No.8 for it's overall tenth week inside of the ten, it's last appearance within the ten was back in August of 2018. This is followed by the Jessica Mauboy set "Hilda", down two spots to No.9 and last weeks new entry of "Pony" by Rex Orange County, which falls down six places to No.10.

Quote: "With no debuts forecast for the Singles Chart this week, all eyes will be on the record for most time spent in the #1 position as Tones And I approaches the milestone with the ubiquitous ‘Dance Monkey’."
The track is the #1 streamed track on Spotify now edging out "Dance Monkey" in today's chart. I hope this track is added to the main chart soon.
Can only hope it's something they'll correct at the end of the week. It happens a bit, all of Kanye & Post Malone's tracks were missing from the midweek reports, Flume's Let You Know was completely missing even on ARIA's top 10 trending video until it did turn up as expected on the chart.
