The second No.1 for 2021 "Heat Waves" by UK band Glass Animals achieves the same time at the summit as the first chart-topper of the year, six weeks, tying with "Driver's License" by Olivia Rodrigo.
"Heat Waves" is now also the equal longest No.1 by a British Band for this century, tying with the six weeks racked up Clean Bandit (duo) from early December of 2016 with "Rockabye", with the third and final British Band hitting the top this century being One Direction for a single week on August 15th, 2015 with "Drag Me Down". The last British Band to hold for longer at the top were All Saints from March 22nd, 1998 with "Never Ever" for a seven week continuous run (3rd of 7 weeks this week in 1998), while The Spice Girls' first entry "Wannabe" is the longest running No.1 by a British Band during the 1990's at 11 weeks from November 3rd, 1996.
The Glass Animals track is still only No.1 in Australia, while it's back up to No.4 in New Zealand (HP-3) and climbs one spot in Ireland to a new peak of No.6, plus it's still within the Top 30 in England (TW-24) and Top 50 in Canada (HP-42, TW-49). Not only is "Heat Waves" on hold this week, but the entire top three tracks all remain stable, with last weeks No.2 entry for Justin Bieber and "Peaches" holding for a second week at its entry point, while the song lost the top spot in Ireland, it remains for a second week at No.1 in New Zealand and debuts in the No.1 position in both America and his homeland of Canada.
The Kid Laroi's "Without You" track holds onto the No.3 position again this week, logging a 17th week within the chart and the Top 10, while the song remains for a fourth week at No.2 in Portugal, it's only other Top 10 overseas placements are Belgium (#7), The Netherlands and Austria (both #8), while the song climbs back up to No.36 in America (HP-34). Rising back up one spot to its former peak of No.4 for a fifth non-consecutive week is Tiësto and "The Business", a place it occupied for three straight weeks from March 8th, while it first landed at No.4 on February 15th.
Two local Aussie rap artists are now lodged within the Top 5 this week, as Masked Wolf rises two places to land at a new peak of No.5 with "Astronaut in the Ocean". The song occupies seven further Top 10 charts around the world, it's highest at the moment is No.2 in Austria, followed by Bulgaria, Finland (both #4), Germany and Switzerland (both #5), Canada, New Zealand (both #8), a new peak there in N.Z. The song is in the Top 20 in both America (25 to No.17) and England (23 to No.20) and also jumps up seven spots in The Netherlands to a new peak there of No.23.
Those two rising tracks push down the former No.1 "Driver's License" for Olivia Rodrigo two places to land at No.6 this week, while she issued a new track on Friday called "deja vu". Back up one spot to No.7 is Pink's "Cover Me in Sunshine", followed by another two place sliding track in Justin Bieber with "Hold On", to No.8. The HVME remix of Travis Scott's "Goosebumps" remains on hold at No.9 this week, while back up one spot to No.10 after two weeks of sitting at No.11 is Dua Lipa's remix of "Levitating", which also climbs to a 19th week within the Top 10, the new longest runner at the moment.
UP: TOP 20: Giveon's "Heartbreak Anniversary" track is this week up three spots to a new peak of No.12, plus in it's sixth week within the Top 100 it's newly certified Gold (●) in sales. Right after is another six week running entry in "Friday" by Riton x Nightcrawlers, flying up five places to a new chart height of No.13, while the song that was just knocked off the top spot in America this week in the Cardi B. entry "Up" (HP-11) is back up two places here to No.14. TOP 30: After two broken weeks at a peak of No.24 (8th & 22nd of March), the ATB with Topic and A7S entry "Your Love (9PM)" is this week up three places to a new peak of No.22, after which are three place rebounds for "Fly Away" for Tones and I, "Head & Heart" by Joel Corry & MNEK and it's namesake "My Head & My Heart" for Ava Max to No.23, No.24 and No.26 respectively. Moving back up two places each are "We're Good" by Dua Lipa to No.29 and "Paradise" for Meduza to No.30. TOP 40: For the second week in a row the Amy Shark and Keith Urban entry "Love Songs Ain't for Us" (HP-22) moves back up the chart, this week jumping six spots to No.33, while trio AJR see their "Bang!" track also moves up six places, this entry now hitting a new peak of No.37. Entering the Top 50 for the first time, and climbing up twenty-four places within the Top 100 to a new peak of No.40 is the three week old entry (in the T100) for Maroon 5 with Megan Thee Stallion called "Beautiful Mistakes". TOP 50: Another song cracking the T50 for the first time is a six week old Top 100 entry for Sam Fischer with Demi Lovato called "What Other People Say", which is up fifteen spots to a new peak of No.44 and it becomes local artist Sam's second Top 50 entry after "This City" (HP-17x2, 8-15 June, 2020), with that track still charting at 54 weeks this week within the Top 100. Other small moves upwards within the Top 50 are "Lasting Lover" for Sigala (46 to No.43), "Lemonade" for Internet Money (49 to No.47) and "What You Know About Love" for Pop Smoke (52 to No.50).
DOWN: TOP 20: The only song leaving the Top 10 this week is the Lil' Tjay and 6lack entry "Calling My Phone" (HP-3, WI10-6), down one spot to No.11, but the song could rebound next week as Lil' Tjay's new album "Destined 2 Win" came out on Friday. The Weeknd is down to just one Top 20 entry this week as "Save Your Tears" drops down three places to No.15, while the Silk Sonic entry "Leave the Door Open" also declines three spots to land at No.17, but Justin Bieber is the big multiple dropping act this week, as last week he amassed ten Top 50 entries (9 as lead, 1 as guest), this week that figure drops to seven (6 as lead, 1 as guest), as his former No.5 entry "Anyone" falls back down six places this week to No.19, one place lower than his guest appearance on "Mood" with 24KGOLDN at No.18, down one spot from last week. TOP 30: There are only three tracks which drop within the Top 30 this week, two of which are declining a single chart rung; "Blinding Lights" for The Weeknd to No.21 and "So Done" by The Kid Laroi to No.25, but there's a six place slide to No.27 for the Justin Bieber re-entry from last week "Holy" (HP-4x6). TOP 40: The second and final new certification within the Top 50 this week is for the SZA track "Good Days", which is down one place to No.31 and newly ▲Platinum in sales, eight weeks after it was first certified Gold (Feb 15th, 2021). Last weeks No.23 entry for Justin Bieber and Khalid called "As I Am" is this week down thirteen places to No.36, while Megan Thee Stallion is back-to-back with herself as a guest performer this week, with her new appearance on the M5 entry up to No.40, her old No.1 song with Cardi B and "WAP" is down two spots to No.39. TOP 50: Justin Bieber falls nineteen spots to No.41 with another of last week's new entries in "Unstable" with The Kid Laroi, his seventh and final entry this week, as he leaves the Top 50 with three of last weeks entries in "2 Much" (#40), "Off My Face" (#42) and "Lonely" (#47). After peaking at No.38 last week the Kali Uchis entry "Telepathia", along with the Saweetie and Doja Cat song "Best Friend", both drop four spots this week to No.42 and No.45 respectively. The biggest dropout from last weeks chart for this week is the four week old entry for Drake and "What's Next", which leaves the Top 50 from No.34.
NEW ENTRIES: * #16 - Montero (Call My By Your Name) by Lil' Nas X (Columbia) becomes the fourth Top 50 entry for the American rapper and singer, with this new track debuting at No.1 in both England and Ireland this week, thanks to it's massive 71m (as of Sat. 3rd) YouTube views and huge worldwide Spotify figures, in part mostly due to it's video clip's salacious and controversial scenes. Two years ago this week (April 1st, 2019) he was debuting at No.47 with his future 13 week running No.1 single "Old Town Road", while he last charted around Xmas time with "Holiday" (HP-42, peaked 11-Jan, 2021).
* #34 - You All Over Me (Taylor's Version) by Taylor Swift with Maren Morris (Republic) is the second redo for an older Taylor track, and this song was originally intended for her second album "Fearless" (redo edition out next Friday, 9th of April, 2021) but was dropped from the original release, and now the song has been reissued with extra vocals from American country singer Maren Morris. The album's first redone track was "Love Story", which debuted and peaked at No.21 on Feb 22nd, 2021. Last edited:
Australian trio Skegss see their second studio album "Rehearsal" debut at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart this week, becoming their third Top 10 and first No.1 set.
"Rehearsal" (Loma Vista/Concord) by Skegss becomes the 912th No.1 Album in Australia (1965 to 2021), the 762nd for ARIA (1983 to 2021), the 548th to debut at No.1 (1976 to 2021), the twelfth No.1 album for 2021, and now the second for the record label Loma Vista after last years "We are Chaos" for Marilyn Manson (1 week on 21st of Sept, 2020).
Skegss have now landed four albums within the Top 20, three of which have made it into the Top 10, with 2020 seeing the re-issue of their older material on vinyl for the first time, resulting in "Holiday Food" (EP, issued 2017) making it to No.17 in December of 2020 and "50 Push Ups for a Dollar" (EP, issued 2015) cracking No.4 in November 2020, while their first studio album "My Own Mess" debuted and peaked at No.2 in mid-September of 2018, thus this new entry becomes their third Top 10 placement and highest charted entry.
It's the first time that the word 'Rehearsal' has appeared in a No.1 album title (or even charted within the Top 50 for that matter), and as Skegss are an Australian Band (trio) they become 257th Aussie act to make it to No.1 since the first in 1968, plus the sixth for 2021, as Tash Sultana was the last local artist to hit the top back on the 1st of March. Skegss also become the 123rd Australian Act to make it to No.1 (solo, duo, group, male or female), while breaking it down further they are also the 68th Australian Band to hit the top locally and the 404th Group (local or overseas) to hit the No.1 spot, and the fifth for 2021, plus the album is also the No.1 selling vinyl set for this week.
Last week's No.1 debut for Justin Bieber and "Justice" drops only one spot this week to No.2, while the album debuted at the top in both America and Canada this past week, while two places lower the Dua Lipa second set "Future Nostalgia" remains on hold at No.4 this week on it's one-year chart anniversary (April 6th, 2020). Debuting either side of this weeks No.4 is the new entry at No.3 for Evanescence and their fifth studio album "The Bitter Truth", which gives the band their fifth Top 10 entry and sixth overall albums chart entry (5 LP's, 1 live set), while the high new entry for the album makes it the band's highest charting album since their first two sets in 2003 and 2006 hit No.1.
The third and final Top 10 entry this week comes in at No.5, singer and rapper NF with "Clouds", the US artist's first ever mixtape, and now second Top 10 placement in Australia, as his fifth studio album "The Search" debuted and peaked at No.3 on August 5th, 2019, while he also charted with his fourth set "Perception" (HP-73, Oct 2016). Last weeks No.2 entry for Lana Del Rey and "Chemtrails Over the Country Club" drops four places this week to No.6, followed by further declining entries from The Kid Laroi (6 to No.7), The Weeknd (7 to No.8) and Harry Styles' second album (8 to No.10), while Pop Smoke's album is stable at No.9 this week.
UP: TOP 20: Small rises this week of two places apiece for Ed Sheeran's "÷ (Divide)" and Luke Combs' "What You See is What You Get" to No.12 and No.14 respectively, while Fleetwood Mac's classic set "Rumours" rises four spots to No.17. Thanks to a new four-disc vinyl reissue of the debut Tame Impala album "Innerspeaker" it returns to the chart this week at No.19, with the set being the No.2 selling vinyl album this week, and it originally hit No.4 upon debut in late May of 2010. TOP 30: Spacey Jane sees their "Sunlight" set leap back up fifteen places to No.24, and with the opening this past week in Sydney for the stage musical 'Hamilton', the cast recording rebounds twenty-eight places to land at No.27 this week. Troye Sivan also returns to the chart this week with a vinyl reissue of his first album "Blue Neighbourhood" at No.28, the No.3 selling vinyl album this week, with the set first making it to No.6 in mid-December of 2015. TOP 40: Taylor's "1989" set rises back up four to No.32, with the only other rising album within the Top 40 being Ed Sheeran's fourth set "No.6 Collaborations Project", up five places to No.40. TOP 50: Lime Cordiale's latest album "14 Steps to a Better You" fell from No.29 to No.50 last week, and now this week it rebounds seven places to land at No.43, followed by a twenty place surge to No.44 for the Miley Cyrus album "Plastic Hearts".
DOWN: TOP 20: The first of three albums to leave the Top 10 this week is the Billie Eilish massive running debut set "When We All Fall Asleep...", which dips only one spot to No.11 after it's 82nd week within the Top 10, the set this week landing it's two-year chart anniversary (104 weeks). Taylor's two Top 20 entries drop differently this week, with her latest set "evermore" down one place to No.13, while her prior release "folklore" falls five to No.16. TOP 30: Juice WRLD's "Legends Never Die" dips four places to No.21, with a seven place slide to No.25 for Ariana's "Positions" album, while Lewis Capaldi drops six to No.29 with his debut set, after which the second Top 10 dropout occurs for Troy Cassar-Daley with "The World Today" (HP-3, WI10-1), falling twenty-seven places to No.30. TOP 40: The Wiggles latest best of "We're All Fruit Salad" declines nine places to No.33, followed by an eight chart rung drop to No.34 for Post Malone with "Hollywood's Bleeding". "AM" for Arctic Monkeys dips three spots this week to No.35, while Sam Smith's "Love Goes" falls six places to No.36. TOP 50: Some of the older entries this week are dropping down, with XXXTentacion's "?" down eleven to No.42 (195 weeks in the Top 100), "Tickets to My Downfall" by Machine Gun Kelly (34 to No.45, 27 WI), the self-titled Dua Lipa album (35 to No.46, 174 WI), 'After Hours" by The Weeknd (28 to No.47, 53 WI) and "Lover" by Taylor Swift (40 to No.48, 83 WI). The third and final Top 10 dropout from last week was the No.5 entry for Middle Kids and "Today We're the Greatest" (HP-5, WI10-1) which leaves the Top 50 this week, as does "Shore" for Fleet Foxes (#13), "Searching for Freedom" by Ziggy Alberts (#27) and the reissued "Swingshift" by Cold Chisel (#33).
