Kid Laroi maintains his lead atop the ARIA Singles Chart this week with his Justin Bieber duet "Stay", logging a third week at No.1.
The song also stays for a third week in New Zealand and grabs a second week in Canada and Norway, while it drops to No.2 in Sweden and holds at No.2 in Ireland and The Netherlands, with a No.3 placing in England (down from #2) and Denmark, while it's also at No.4 in the U.S.A. and Switzerland and No.5 in Austria, Finland and Germany.
The song is also holding at the top thanks to Kid Laroi's third release "F**k Lov3: Over You" which was issued last Friday (23rd July) and helps his trio of releases climb back up to No.3 this week. "Stay" also gives Kid Laroi (don't say his name backwards!!) the status of the longest running Australian Male Artist No.1 song since Dean Lewis and "Be Alright" (5 weeks from Aug 20th, 2018), plus also his fourth overall week at No.1 this decade, and for Justin Bieber he has now racked up 34 weeks at the top here (remaining at No.17 on the list for 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Singles (1940 to 2021)'). Kid Laroi also debuts at No.8 with a new track from his expanded set called "Not Sober" featuring guest artists Polo G and Stunna Gambino, and by coming in at No.8, this new entry becomes his fourth Top 10 entry locally.
For a third week in a row the Top 5 songs remain as non-movers, with Ed Sheeran's "Bad Habits" at No.2, while holding for a fifth week at the top in England and Ireland, plus he also issued remixes of the track on Friday (July 30th). Olivia Rodrigo is back down to one song within the Top 10 this week, as her former No.1 song "Good 4 U" holds at No.3, followed by Måneskin at No.4 with their cover of "Beggin'" and then Doja Cat holds the No.5 spot with SZA and "Kiss Me More", scoring it's sixteenth week inside the Top 10.
The first of two new entries (the second was mentioned above) to the Top 10 this week occurs at No.6, with the latest Lil' Nas X single "Industry Baby" becoming his third Top 10 entry in Australia, thanks in part to the 50M+ views on YouTube in the past week since it's release (possibly because he's dancing naked in the showers with a heap of fellow dancers), while he regains a second Top 10 placement this week with his second No.1 song "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)", which is back up one spot to No.10 for an eleventh week inside of the Top 10. The new Lil' Nas X song features guest vocalist Jack Harlow, and this new entry now becomes his second Top 10 placement locally and his highest charting, as he reached No.8 with "What's Poppin'" in July 2020.
The fifth and final No.1 song within the Top 10 this week is the Glass Animals song "Heat Waves", which dips down one spot to No.7, the song logging it's 27th week within the Top 10 (7th equal longest alongside "Old Town Road" for Lil' Nas X in 2019), while Dua Lipa's "Levitating" is down two spots to No.9 and scoring it's 30th week in the T10, becoming now her longest running Top 10 single in Australia and the outright fourth longest running Top 10 single in Australia, and one week shy of the 31 racked up "Sunflower" for Post Malone in 2018/19.
UP: TOP 20: There are no rising tracks within the Top 20 this week and one stable song at No.20 of "Friday'' for Riton x Nightcrawlers feat. Mufasa & Hypeman. Of the song's 23 weeks within the Top 100, twenty of those weeks have been spent within the Top 20 (HP-12x2), making it now the longest running Top 20 entry (no-Top 10 placement) since Sneaky Sound System logged 18 weeks within the Top 20 in 2007 (and early 2008) with "UFO" (HP-11, July 2007) (thankx to Hijinx for the chart-tip). TOP 30: Doja Cat flew back up to No.32 (from #60) last week with "Need to Know", and this week the song rises again, eleven places to a new peak of No.21. "Rasputin" for Majestic x Boney M remains at a peak of No.28 for a third non-consecutive week (July 12th, 26th and this week), followed by a thirty-four place leap to No.29 (LW-63) for UK rapper DAVE with Stormzy and "Clash", thanks to his second album entering in the Top 10 this week, becoming DAVE's first Top 50 placement and the fifth for fellow-UK rapper Stormzy. TOP 40: Another rapper (this one from New York) making his first Top 50 appearance this week is Sleepy Hallow with his three week old Top 100 entry "2055", which is up twenty-three spots to land at No.34, with the song only placing higher (so far) in New Zealand this week at No.26, and it's taken from his debut album "Still Sleep?", which came in at No.96 on last weeks ARIA Album chart. TOP 50: The only rising song within this chart region is a rebounding Kid Laroi track "So Done" (HP-6), which zooms back up twenty-eight places to land at No.46 thanks to his new expanded "F**k Lov3" set, and it's the songs first Top 50 appearance since May 31st, 2021.

Three songs which were all peaking last week drop down a little this week, "Missing Piece" for Vance Joy (14 to No.15), Måneskin and "I Wanna Be Your Slave" (15x3 to No.16) and the only new certification within the Top 50 is Tom Grennan with "Little Bit of Love", newly Gold (●) in sales and dipping two places to No.18.
