UK drill rap artists Russ Millions and Tion Wayne see their second collaboration called "Body" climb to the top of the ARIA Singles Chart this week, becoming their second international No.1 placement.
"Body" by Russ Millions & Tion Wayne (Atlantic UK) becomes the 1104th No.1 Single in Australia (1940 to 2021), the 539th for ARIA (1983 to 2021), the sixth (new) No.1 for 2021 (seventh if you include last years carry over No.1), the second for an English act this year (and decade), plus the 29th for the record label Atlantic since their first in March of 1970 by Led Zeppelin, and the label's third No.1 in successive years after Ed Sheeran in 2019 and Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion in 2020.
The song also climbs to No.1 in New Zealand (3rd Int. topping) this week and holds for a second week in Ireland (1st International #1) and their homeland of England, while for both solo English rappers this is not only their first chart entry here, but now their first No.1 in Australia, and for solo UK Male rappers they are also the first to top our charts. Another feat the pair achieve is the first solo English Male Performers to hit No.1 in Australia this decade, as the last solo English Male to hit the top was Ed Sheeran (with Justin Bieber) for one week on May 20th, 2019 with "I Don't Care" (also the last Atlantic No.1 of the 2010's too), while the last NEW Solo British Male artist at the top here was George Ezra with "Shotgun" (5 weeks from Sept 24th, 2018).
This new No.1 song "Body" also becomes the third title to feature that word in its title, with the other two being "Rock Your Body" by Justin Timberlake (1 week on May 12th, 2003) and the first was "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" for Samantha Fox (3 broken weeks on July 7th, 21st and 28th, 1986), while the word has also been incorporated within four further titles by Gotye (8 weeks from Aug 15th, 2011), Whitney Houston (5 weeks from June 15th, 1987) Connie Francis (3 weeks from July 16th, 1960) all with the word 'Somebody' and also Normie Rowe (3 broken weeks Dec 17th, 1966 and 7th and 14th of Jan, 1967) with 'Nobody'.
The last time that two solo English Male artists appeared together at No.1 in Australia was on January 23rd, 1994 when Rod Stewart (Scottish) and Sting (English) teamed with Canadian Bryan Adams for "All for Love" (2 weeks), while the first were Mick Jagger and David Bowie with their cover of "Dancing in the Streets" (2 weeks from October 7th, 1985). Russ and Tion also become the 47th & 48th Solo Male English Artist at No.1 in Australia, the 128th & 129th English acts (solo, duo, group, male or female) and the song is the 209th English performed No.1 single locally.
Holding at its peak of No.2 for a second successive week is Doja Cat and SZA with "Kiss Me More", which after five weeks of charting is newly certified Gold (●) in sales. Last week's No.1 single for The Kid Laroi with Miley Cyrus and "Without You" drops down two places this week to No.3 after a solo week at the top. The song also manages a 23rd week within the Top 10, making it now the equal tenth longest running Top 10 entry in Australian Chart history (alongside 'Shotgun' and 'Closer' by The Chainsmokers). The pair performed the song on 'Saturday Night Live' last week in America and that has also helped the song to leap to a new peak in America (23 to No.8) and also it has rebounded in Norway (33 to No.8), England (30 to No.13), Ireland (24 to No.14), Sweden (28 to No.10), Austria (17 to No.5), Canada (14 to No.7, re-peak), Switzerland (22 to No.10, re-peak), Germany (25 to No.15) and the song finally debuts in France (#75).
Swapping places are two former No.1 singles in "Heat Waves" by Glass Animals back up one spot to No.4 and the chart-topper from three weeks ago "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" for Lil' Nas X, which is down one place to No.5. Back up two spots to No.6 is the second and final local act and rapper within the Top 10 this week, Masked Wolf with "Astronaut in the Ocean", rising back up two spots this week. The song also lies within the Top 10 in Bulgaria (#2), Finland (#3), New Zealand and America (#7, U.S. peak for second week, plus he sits just ahead of The Kid Laroi on the U.S. charts) and Canada (#8), while it holds at its No.14 peak in England and re-peaks in Belgium (34 to No.26 for a second week).
The fifth and final No.1 song within the Top 10 this week is the Justin Bieber track "Peaches", which along with the current second week U.S. No.1 single for The Weeknd and "Save Your Tears" (Ariana Grande duet) are both down here down one place each to No.7 and No.8 respectively. After which are two songs which return to the Top 10, "Levitating" by Dua Lipa (returns for a second week at No.1 in Canada) and "The Business" for Tiësto, which are both up two places apiece to No.9 and No.10 and logging a 20th and 14th week within the Top 10 respectively.
UP: TOP 20: Climbing two places to return to its former peak of No.12 (April 12th, 2021) is the Riton x Nightcrawlers track "Friday (Dopamine Re-Edit)", followed by a two spot rebound to No.13 for the Pink track with her daughter Willow and "Cover Me in Sunshine", as she also debut at No.25 this week. Olivia Rodrigo is back-to-back with her first two chart entries, with her breakout former No.1 "Drivers License" back up one to No.16, while the final climber within the Top 20 is the ATB with Topic and A7S track "Your Love (9PM)", which climbs to chart-rungs to a new peak of No.18 this week. TOP 30: After two weeks of sitting at No.27 the latest Joel Corry track "Bed" with RAYE and David Guetta jumps up four spots this week to a new peak of No.23, which is the only climbing song within the Top 30 this week, but not the only Joel Corry track, as his former No.2 single "Head & Heart" is down one spot to No.30. TOP 40: No climbing tracks within the Top 40 this week, just one stable entry at No.33 for Dua Lipa and "We're Good"... TOP 50: ...while Dua has the only climbing song within the Top 50, her massive track "Don't Start Now" (HP-2x10) is back up one spot to No.48, thanks in part to her winning two BRIT Awards this past week, 'Album of the Year' and 'British Female Solo Artist', and it also becomes her second climber of the week.
DOWN: TOP 20: Two songs leave the Top 10 this week, "RapStar" for Polo G (HP-4x2, WI10-4) down one to No.11 and last weeks highest new entry for Billie Eilish and "Your Power" (HP-9, WI10-1), which drops five spots to land at No.14. As I mentioned in the 'UP' section, Olivia Rodrigo is sitting beside herself on the chart this week, with her second entry "Deja vu" down two places to No.15. TOP 30: The second and final certification within the Top 50 this week is "Heartbreak Anniversary" for Giveon, newly ▲Platinum in sales (it went Gold on April 5th, 7 weeks ago) and the song is down two places to No.21.

TOP 50: There's a six place slide to No.42 for Justin Bieber's "Anyone", while there are five spot drops for "My Head and My Heart" by Ava Max (40 to No.45) and "Best Friend" for Saweetie and Doja Cat (44 to No.49), four place dips for "Martin & Gina" by Polo G (42 to No.46), "Good Days" by SZA (43 to No.47) and "Dance Monkey" by Tones and I (46 to No.50), which is celebrating its two-year chart entry anniversary (104 weeks within the Top 100), plus Toni just issued a new track on Friday called "Won't Sleep", the second song (after "Fly Away") to be lifted from her forthcoming debut album "Welcome to the Mad House".
NEW ENTRIES: * #20 - i n t e r l u d e by J. Cole (Dreamville/Roc Nation) is the lead single from the just issued sixth studio album for the American artist called "The Off-Season", and is the first of two albums coming out this year for him, the second will be named "The Fall Off" (no date known). By coming in at No.20 the song also becomes his third Top 20 single in Australia after the title track from his April 2018 album "KOD" (HP-20) and his last entry here "Middle Child" (HP-15, Feb 2019). He has also been charting for the past ten weeks in the lower fifty of the Top 100 with his 2015 track "No Role Modelz" (HP-89, LW-93).
* #25 - All I Know So Far by Pink (RCA) is the title track from the May 21st due first ever live album for the American singer/songwriter called "All I Know So Far: Setlist", which will feature 17 tracks in total, 13 of which will be live recordings and two studio tracks (along with her other current chart entry "Cover Me in Sunshine", TW-13). Two of those live tracks will be her cover of the Queen songs "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "We Are the Champions", while her hits will include "Just Like a Pill", "So What", "Who Knew" and "Just Give Me a Reason".
* #31 - Miss the Rage by Trippie Redd feat. Playboi Carti (1400 Ent./14K Projects) becomes the first solo entry for the U.S. rapper (and second overall), and it is the lead single from his forthcoming fourth studio album called "Trip at Knight" (no date known as yet). Trippie previously charted locally as a guest on the KSI track from 2020 called "Wake Up Call" (HP-92), and for guest rapper on this track Playboi Carti this is his first singles chart entry, having previously sent two albums onto our charts in 2018 and 2020.
* #44 - Higher Power by Coldplay (Parlophone) is the 32nd Top 100 and 23rd Top 50 entry for the British band who've been charting here now for twenty years, as their first entry here "Yellow" was at No.36 this week in 2001, having peaked at No.5 for three weeks in late Feb and early March of 2001. This song is the lead single from their forthcoming ninth studio album, and this is their first new entry since "Orphans" made it to No.68 in the last quarter of 2019.
Amy Shark's second album "Cry Forever" holds for a second week at No.1 in Australia, becoming her longest run at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart.
"Cry Forever" by Amy Shark becomes the first album to spend a second (consecutive) week at No.1 since the start of the year when Taylor Swift's "evermore" was spending its third and fourth weeks at the top, plus it is also the first Australian Artist album to spent a second week at the top since AC/DC's "Power Up" (4 weeks from Nov 23rd, 2020), and finally Amy is the first Australian Solo Female Artist this decade to land a second stay at the top of the Album charts, as the last local female solo singer to lodge a second stay was Jessica Mauboy with "The Secret Daughter" TV soundtrack (3 weeks from October 24th, 2016). Amy's first album "Love Monster" only managed one week at the top, thus her new album has now become her longest running No.1 at two weeks.
The top two albums are on hold this week, with Justin Bieber's "Justice" holding onto the No.2 spot for another week, followed by multiple BRIT Award winner Dua Lipa and her second set "Future Nostalgia", which is back up one spot to No.3, as she won for 'Album of the Year' and 'British Solo Female Artist'. This is followed by former 2017 (2 wins) and 2018 (1 win) BRIT Award winner Rag'N'Bone Man, who debuts at No.4 with his second studio album called "Life by Misadventure", which also becomes his second UK No.1 Album this week and his second Top 5 entry here, as his first album "Human" debuted and peaked at No.3 in late February of 2017.
Further 2020 BRIT Award winners see their albums climb back up this week too, as Harry Styles won for 'British Single of the Year' for "Watermelon Wine", and his second album "Fine Line" is back up three to No.5 (it's the #2 vinyl LP of the week too), followed by a three place rise to No.6 for Billie Eilish and "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?", winner for 'International Solo Female Artist', while the winner for 'Male' in the same category was The Weeknd, whose collection "The Highlights" returns to the Top 10 and rises four places to No.7, after last week making it's first exit from the Top 10. Also rising four places and returning to the Top 10 this week are The Kid Laroi with "F**k Love (mixtape)"/"Savage (EP)" and Pop Smoke with "Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon" to No.8 and No.9 respectively, and rounding out the Top 10 and down four places to No.10 is Taylor Swift's redone "Fearless" album.
UP: TOP 20: With not many new entries to the chart this week (unlike last week) a heap of older titles rebound back up the charts, with BRIT Award performer and whose biopic 'Rocketman' was screened on TV this past week, Elton John's "Diamonds" collection jumps back up six places to No.11, followed by another six place rise for Luke Combs with "What You See is What You Get", while his first set "This One's for You" is back up five to No.17, giving him two albums within the Top 20, which is only the third time this year he has achieved this (Jan 11th and more recently on May 3rd). Rebounding five places within the Top 20 are "÷ (Divide)" by Ed Sheeran and "Rumours" for Fleetwood Mac to No.14 and No.15, followed by a new peak of No.16 for the Maroon 5 "Singles Collection" (former peak was #17), thanks to a seven place rise this week. The three remaining Top 20 rising albums are (9 out of the 10 rise this week) "Curtain Call: The Hits" by Eminem (25 to No.18), "Positions" by Ariana Grande (21 to No.19) and "Legends Never Die" for Juice WRLD, which leaps back up nine spots to land at No.20. TOP 30: Taylor Swift has three climbing albums within the Top 30 this week, her older entry "1989" (33 to No.21), "folklore" (27 to No.25) and "evermore" (30 to No.27), while one-week-shy of it's two year chart anniversary the debut Lewis Capaldi album is back up nine spots to No.22. Spacey Jane have the No.3 selling vinyl album this week with "Sunlight", which rises back up one spot to No.23, after which the Morgan Wallen album "Dangerous: The Double Album" set leaps back up eight spots to No.24.

TOP 50: Two collection's which leap back up are for Foo Fighters (61 to No.42) and Green Day (58 to No.49), the "AM" set for Arctic Monkeys is back up seven to No.43, after which the Coldplay album "Live in Buenos Aires" jumps back up from 69 to No.45, thanks to a new singles chart entry at No.44. This is the live album's first Top 50 appearance since its initial chart enty of No.18 and No.35 on December 17th and 24th of 2019, thus this week it lands a third Top 50 week. Also rising back into the Top 50 are Ed Sheeran with his most recent album "No.6 Collaborations Project" (56 to No.46), "The Goat" for Polo G (54 to No.48) and the second climbing Post Malone set for the week "Beerbongs & Bentley's" (63 to No.50).

I can't see them either,, but I have posted them twice on the Accreditations thread.
I have to go to Swiss page and post from there, as I am putting too much info in at once on this page it doesn't allow me to do it, but when I go to the home Swiss page I can do it. It shows on that page but not on ours for some strange reason.
