The Weekend stays atop the ARIA Singles Chart for a fifth straight week with the first new No.1 song of 2020 and "Blinding Lights".
The song for The Weeknd is also holding for a fourth week at the top in Germany, and could possibly fall next week due to this weeks highest new entry and the new No.1 song in both England and Ireland this week, the new James Bond theme "No Time to Die" for Billie Eilish, which here is a new entry at No.4, becoming her ninth Top 10 and her seventh Top 5 single in Australia. While for James Bond themes this is the sixth this century (25th all up) and the third to land a Top 10 berth, the others being 2002's "Die Another Day" by Madonna (HP-5) and "Skyfall" for Adele in 2012 (HP-5), with the last to enter being the Sam Smith song "Writing's on the Wall" (HP-43, Nov 2015), with Sam and Billie both becoming the only two Bond Theme's to hit No.1 in England.
Sandwiched in-between those two previously mentioned songs are Dua Lipa with "Don't Start Now", achieving a seventh overall week at No.2, while last weeks highest new entry for Justin Bieber and Quavo with "Intentions" is up ten spots this week to No.3 (and the new No.1 song in New Zealand), thanks to his fifth studio album "Changes" entering at No.2 this week, while it also becomes his highest charted and second Top 10 single from this new album, after "Yummy" peaked at No.4 six weeks ago, that song rebounds back into the Top 10 this week and is up eleven spots to land at No.8 for its fifth week inside the Top 10, and overall this is JB's 19th Top 10 single in Australia and now also his twelfth Top 3 placing too.
Tones and I is reduced to just one song within the Top 10 this week in the longest running No.1 single and "Dance Monkey", which is down two spots to No.5 and newly certified 9x▲Platinum in sales, while its also spending its 33rd week within the Top 10 to retain the longest running Top 10 single of all time record, as well as longest running No.1 of all time too. There are two place drops for "The Box" by Roddy Ricch (U.S. No.1 for a 6th week and in Canada for a fifth week) and "You Should Be Sad" for Halsey to No.6 and No.7 respectively. Lewis Capaldi's second Top 10 single in "Before You Go" is down one spot to No.9 after he sung it last week on Graham Norton Show, and also at The BRIT Awards this past week, while the Post Malone song "Circles" is down three places to No.10 and is logging its 25th week within the Top 10 (it hasn't left the ten since it entered almost half-a-year ago), and is now the equal fourth longest running Top 10 single of all time alongside "Perfect" for Ed Sheeran and the recent "Bad Guy" for Billie Eilish, both of which are former No.1 songs, making now "Circles" the highest charted, non-No.1 single, with the most weeks inside the Top 10.

The fourth studio album for Tame Impala becomes their second successive No.1 Album in Australia as "The Slow Rush" debuts at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart this week.
"The Slow Rush" becomes the 869th No.1 Album in Australia (1965 to 2020), the 719th for ARIA (1983 to 2020), the 508th set to debut in the top spot (1976 to 2020), the sixth for the Modular record label (their last was "Wildflower" for The Avalanches in July 2016), and the second for the group Tame Impala, as their previous album "Currents" spent a week at the top on the 27th of July, 2015.
This is the third time that the word 'Slow' has appeared in a No.1 album title, the previous two were "Slow Train Coming" for Bob Dylan (2 weeks from 8th of October, 1979) and then Lionel Richie's "Can't Slow Down" (3 weeks from 18th of June, 1984), while one previous 'Rush' has gone to the top in the Coldplay set "A Rush of Blood to the Head" (1 week on 2nd of Sept., 2002). The new No.1 album also becomes the 238th by an Australian Act (solo, duo, group, male or female) and the second for this year as The Dune Rats topped for a single week two weeks ago (that album has left the Top 100 this week too!!), and the 384th No.1 by a Group (local or overseas) and also the third successive No.1 by a band in a row, and with both BTS and The Amity Affliction issuing new albums on Friday, it could be another group at the top next week again.
Landing at No.2 as the second and final new entry to the Top 100 this week is the fifth studio album for Justin Bieber entitled "Changes", which becomes his sixth Top 10 album in Australia (5 studios and one remix album), and his ninth overall entry (5 studios, two remix sets, 1 EP, 1 compilation). The album landed at No.1 in England (his second there), Ireland and The Netherland (so far), plus it also has pushed ten of the 16 tracks from the album into the Top 100 singles chart this week too.
Billie Eilish remains at No.3 with her set "When We All Fall Asleep...", while also on hold this week are "Fine Line" by Harry Styles at No.5, "Lover" for Taylor Swift at No.6 and Elton John's "Diamonds" at No.10, which is newly certified ▲Platinum in sales and logging its 25th week within the Top 10, and this next week he plays his last shows in Australia for his farewell tour.

Returning to the Top 10 and up eight places to No.7, is the Queen biopic soundtrack for "Bohemian Rhapsody" (HP-1x4, WI10-30a) which rises thanks to their current national tour and their appearance at the Fire Relief Concert last weekend.

Hey bulion, why has Noise11 stopped publishing singles information? Now that AusPop's stopped publishing their Chart Watch articles, there's no news site that publishes Australian chart information, which is disappointing...
Ss112, this page is the only place where the singles chartifacts are now published, as Noise11 (my publisher) has been disliking the ARIA Singles Charts since Tones and I dominated for so long, he go the shits/upset and decided not to publish the singles charts anymore because of their streaming inclusion being so heavy within the chart.
He doesn't have a problem with the albums charts though, so they are still being published. I also offered AusPop my singles article, but Damian doesn't want to do the feature anymore anyway. So THIS PAGE is now you're only source for my singles info, so enjoy it on here exclusively.
I've been writing the chartifacts up since prior to 2006, and publishing them on here since 2007, so I ain't about to stop anytime soon.
