Singles Chartifacts:

It's a fifth week at the summit of the Australian Singles Chart for Harry Styles' "As it Was" track, just as his third album was issued on Friday.

"Harry's House" for Mr. Styles is the first of three major projects to be issued for 2022 by the former 1D member, with his third studio album dropping on Friday (May 20th), which could see a slew of 'House' tracks entering the chart next week, just like Jack Harlow last week and Kendrick Lamar this week. Harry's two other big releases for this year are the movie's, 'Don't Worry Darling' in September and 'My Policeman' near the end of the year.

As of this week "As it Was" has logged it's fifth stay at No.1, tying it as the equal longest running #1 for 2022, alongside the five weeks achieved by "Heat Waves" for Glass Animals (March-April) and the five broken weeks for "Cold Heart" for Elton John and Dua Lipa (January and February), plus with his new album potentially keeping "As it Was" at the top for another week or two, as of next week the album's lead single could be the longest running No.1 for 2022. The song is also logging it's seventh week at the top in both England (equal longest for 2022 alongside 'Bruno') and Ireland, plus a fifth week at the summit in Canada.

Jack Harlow's "First Class" remains in second position for a fourth week, while it regains the No.1 spot in American for a second stay and spends a sixth straight week at the top in New Zealand, while last week's No.3 peak for Lizzo's "About Damn Time" drops down one place this week to land at No.4, while either side of Lizzo are two Kendrick Lamar tracks debuting from his new No.1 album "Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers", with the songs "N95" (NZ #2) and "Die Hard" (featuring Blxst and Amanda Reifer) debuting at No.3 and No.5 respectively, while he also lands a third Top 10 debut this week with the track "United in Grief" coming in at No.7. This gives Kendrick his 7th, 8th and 9th Top 10 entries in Australia (5 as lead, 4 as a guest artist), and his first Top 10 entries since his 'Black Panther' soundtrack singles "All the Stars" (HP-2, peaked late Feb 2018) and "Pray for Me" with The Weeknd (HP-9, peaked early March 2018).

With a fresh infusion of new songs to the Top 10, eight of the Top 10 singles have all racked up single figure tally's for their stays, while the first and second longest Top 10 stays remain within the ten. "Heat Waves" for Glass Animals is pushed down two places this week to No.6, it's first week outside of the Top 5 since the first chart for 2022 when it was sitting at No.9. The track is racking up it's 68th week within the Top 10, still the longest ever, while the song hasn't left the Top 10 for the past 40 weeks (only ever dropped out on August 30th, 2021).

After peaking at No.6 for the past two weeks, Latto's "Big Energy" declines two places this week to No.8, after which is the only local act within the Top 10, and he has two of them, as Kid Laroi touched down in Sydney this past week to commence his national tour from Thursday the 26th of May in Sydney, touring until June 7th, ending in Brisbane, after which he starts his European tour in Denmark in late June. His latest single "Thousand Miles" falls five places to No.9 and his long-running No.1 single (17 weeks) "Stay" with Justin Bieber is down three spots to No.10. "Stay" has spent it's entries 45 weeks on the chart within the Top 10, and by racking up it's 45th week it is now the equal second longest running Top 10 of all time in Australia, tying with this week's Top 10 dropout "Bad Habits" for Ed Sheeran.

UP: There is not a single track which rises within the Top 10 or even Top 50 this week, as Kendrick Lamar has 14 songs swamping the Top 50, which pushes all former entries down the chart.

Three long-term Top 10 entries depart this week, with the aforementioned "Bad Habits" (HP-1x2, WI10-45) dropping down two spots to No.12, and leaving the Top 10 for only the second time in it's 47 week chart-run, plus this is the song's lowest ever chart position, as it fell to No.11 on the January 3rd, 2022 chart. Ed also drops down with his "Shivers" entry, four spots to No.15, and alongside Camila Cabello on "Bam Bam", dropping seven to No.25, while last week he seemed poised this week to land a Top 50 berth with his newest entry "2Step" featuring Lil' Baby (LW-53), but the Kendrick tidal wave has pushed it back down.
"Where Are You Now" by Lost Frequencies and Calum Scott (HP-5x4, WI10-17, equal 20th longest Top 10 run) falls four spots to land at No.13, followed by a six place dive to No.14 for first time Top 10 dropout "Cold Heart" for Elton John and Dua Lipa (HP-1x10, WI10-39), the song having never left the Top 10 since it's debut back on August 23rd, 2021, plus it's 39 week inside of the T10 makes it's now the outright fifth longest of all time in Australia.
After jumping to No.12 last week, this week the Future track "Wait for U" is back down six spots to No.18, while leaving the Top 20 for the first time ever are "abcdeFU" by Gayle (14 to No.23, cracking it's half-year {26 weeks} on the chart and now it's lowest ever chart position) and "Ghost" by Justin Bieber, dropping eight to No.24 after 30 weeks within the Top 20 (and only peaking at No.11 for three weeks). Also leaving the Top 20 and now landing at it's lowest ever chart position of No.26 (down from #15) is Lil' Nas X feat. Jack Harlow with "Industry Baby" (it fell to #25 on Jan. 3rd), followed by drops by SUPER-Hi and Neeka with "Following the Sun" (21 to No.28) and "Save Your Tears" by The Weeknd (20 to No.29).
Jack Harlow is reduced to three Top 50 entries this week, one as a guest (#26) and two of his new tracks from last week; "Dua Lipa" (13 to No.31) and "Churchill Downs" (17 to No.47) with Drake. Dua Lipa herself follows on from her namesake song by Jack, as her single "Levitating" falls eight places this week to No.32, followed by Adele's "Easy on Me" which plummets fifteen spots to land at No.34, but the song does pick up a 4x▲Platinum sales certification. Special mention must also go to Tones and I with her "Dance Monkey" single, which is newly 17x▲Platinum in sales and also logging it's three-year chart anniversary, having notched up 156 weeks (3 years) within the Top 100, only ever leaving the chart for a single week on January 3rd of this year (it last went 16xP on November 22nd, 2021).
Three nine-place drops occur for Willow and "Wait a Minute", Lil Nas X's second Top 50 entry "That's What I Want" and Elley Duhe's "Middle of the Night" to No.35, No.36 and No.41 respectively, while "Enemy" for Imagine Dragons falls eight spots to land at No.38, either side of which are two double digit drops for last week's surging track "10 Things I Hate About You" for Leah Kate (22 to No.37) and "Good 4 U" by Olivia Rodrigo (39 to No.28).
Newcomer Benson Boone's first entry "In the Stars" dips six spots to No.40, while DAVE's "Starlight" diminishes a massive seventeen solar-chart-rungs to No.42, after which "Mr. Brightside" for the Killers dims six places to land down at No.45. Dean Lewis' "Hurtless" drops down eleven places to land at No.46, Doja Cat is reduced to only one Top 50 (lead) entry this week as her "Woman" track falls seven places to No.49, while last weeks Top 40 entries for Taylor Swift (#23), Lauren Spencer-Smith (#33) and Lady Gaga (#36) all leave the Top 50 this week, although once the new 'Top Gun: Maverick' opens in cinema's this coming week (May 26th), it should boost Gaga's song back up.

* #48 - Auntie Diaries by Kendrick Lamar (Top Dawg/Aftermath/Interscope) are fourteen of the eighteen tracks contained on the new Kendrick album called "Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers" which lands at No.1 on the Australian Albums Chart this week. The four missing tracks not landing within the Top 50 this week include two interlude songs for "Rich Spirit" and "Savior", while the albums final two tracks "Mother I Sober" and "Mirror" have most likely landed in the lower fifty this week. Kendrick's last two projects saw three singles chart from his 'Black Panther' soundtrack in January and February 2018, with his last studio album "Damn" from late April 2017 seeing four songs chart after the album's lead single "Humble" (HP-2) in "DNA" (HP-16), "Loyalty" (with Rihanna) (HP-20) and "Love" (feat, Zacari) (HP-29), thus this new album gives him his most amount of first week entries ever.

* #27 - Cooped Up by Post Malone feat. Roddy Rich (Republic) is the second single lifted from the June 3rd due fourth studio album for the American singer and rapper called "Twelve Carat Toothache'', which had it's first release in the single "One Right Now" with The Weeknd, peaking at No.9 upon entry on November 15th, 2021, plus this new entry becomes his 47th Top 100 placement (40 as lead, 7 as guest artist).

Albums Chartifacts:

Kendrick Lamar's fifth studio album titled "Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers" enters at No.1 on the ARIA Albums Chart this week.

"Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers" (Top Dawg/Aftermath/Interscope) is the 948th No.1 Album in Australia (1965 to 2022), the 799th for ARIA (1983 to 2022), the 583rd to debut at the top, the 17th No.1 Album for 2022, the 37th for the record label Interscope and now the second for Kendrick after his third set "To Pimp a Butterfly" went to the top for a single week on March 23rd, 2015.

Mr. Lamar's new set also becomes his sixth Albums Chart entry, made up of 4 studio, 1 compilation and 1 soundtrack for 'Black Panther', his last albums chart appearance in late February of 2018, reaching No.2 upon entry for two weeks. This new No.1 becomes the fourth to contain the word 'big' in it's title, with the last being from this week's No.2 entrants Florence + the Machine with "How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful" (8th of June, 2015). It's the first time for the words 'Mr.', 'morale' and 'steppers', but we have had two previous 'Step' sets from Kylie Minogue (July 2019) and Lime Cordiale with 'steps' (July 2020).

This is the fourth rap artist to score a No.1 Album this year, after Huskii (Feb), Machine Gun Kelly (April) and Future two weeks ago on May 9th. The new No.1 set also becomes the 332nd by an American Artist (solo male or female, duo or group) to make it to the top (sixth for 2022), and the 272nd by a Solo Male Artist (local or overseas), the eighth for this year, and the third in a row after Daniel Johns last week and Future the week prior. Kendrick's new album has also landed first week at No.1 in New Zealand, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, The Netherlands and Lithuania, while it landed at No.2 in both England and Scotland, plus it has placed fourteen songs (of it's 18 in total) within the Top 50 singles chart this week, with three landing within the Top 10, "N95" (#3), "Die Hard" (#5) and "United in Grief" (#7).

Also debuting with their fifth studio album are Florence + the Machine with "Dance Fever" (#3 vinyl) coming in at No.2, while the set took out the top spot in England and Scotland, plus a No.2 entry in N.Z., Ireland, The Netherlands and Germany too. All of the groups five studio albums have landed at No.3 or higher, with their two No.1's being "Ceremonials" (LP#2, 1 week on Nov. 7th, 2011) and "How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful" (LP#3, 1 week on June 8th, 2015), plus they have also charted two further Top 20 albums, making their tally of seven chart entries locally.

Last week's highest new entry for Jack Harlow's "Come Home the Kids Miss You" drops down one spot this week to No.3, followed by another single downward move for Olivia Rodrigo's "SOUR" to No.4, the set logging it's one-year chart and Top 10 anniversary this week, as her album has yet to depart the Top 10, having only ever dropped as low as No.9 on two occasions (Nov. 22nd and Dec. 20th, 2021).

After returning to the Top 100 last week at No.12, The Hilltop Hoods sixth album "Drinking From the Sun" rises seven places to land at No.5 this week, retaining the No.1 selling vinyl album this week, while the set logs it's tenth week inside of the Top 10, last being within the ten on August 13th, 2020 (#7). The third and final Top 10 debut is the first studio album for local artist Mallrat called "Butterfly Blue" (#2 vinyl), which lands at No.6 this week, becoming her second Top 10 placement, as her third EP "Driving Music" debuted and peaked at No.10 in mid-September of 2019.

Harry Styles dropped his third studio album "Harry's House" on Friday (May 20th), and it could be next week's No.1 (he's up against Flume's new set), and his second studio album "Fine Line" (#12 vinyl) is this week down two spots to No.7. Last week's No.1 album for Daniel Johns with "FutureNever" drops back down seven places this week to land at No.8, followed by two place drops for both The Weeknd's package "The Highlights" and Doja Cat's "Planet Her" to No.9 and No.10 respectively.

Harry Styles' self-titled debut album is back up nine places this week to No.14, while it's also the #10 selling vinyl album of the week. Taylor Swift has three rising albums this week, "1989" (20 to No.18), "Lover" (38 to No.36) and her "Reputation' rebounds seven places to land at No.39.
Kid Laroi landed back in Australia on Friday, ahead of his national tour starting on Thursday (26th of May) in Sydney, while his mixtape's "F**k Love" is back up four places this week to No.20. Both Billie Eilish sets rebound three places each with 'Sleep' to No.22 and 'Happier' up to No.25, while Drake's "Certified Lover Boy" is also up three spots to No.28.
The Weeknd's "After Hours" set jumps seven spots to No.30, while the new No.1 Album for Kendrick Lamar has dragged two of his previous albums back up the chart this week, with "Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City" jumping six spots to No.34 and his "Damn." set jumps fourteen places to No.48.
Nine weeks ago UK artist Charli XCX debuted at No.1 with her latest album "Crash", which thanks to a vinyl chart #7 placing this week, the album returns to the Top 100 at No.38 this week, while the last climbing set within the Top 50 is "AM" (#15 vinyl) for Arctic Monkeys to No.47.

Two of the four Top 10 dropouts land within the Top 50 this week, with Ed Sheeran's "= (Equals)" (HP-1x1, WI10-28) leaving the Top 10 for the first time in it's 29 week chart run, down six places to No.12, while notching up it's half-year (26 weeks) chart anniversary is Adele's "30" (HP-1x7, WI10-18a), which falls down eleven places this week to No.15. Last week's Top 10 debuts for Alison Wonderland (#9) and Stand Atlantic (#10) both fall into the lower fifty this week.
The third and final Top 50 entry for The Weeknd and his most recent release "Dawn FM" (#11 vinyl) drops down six places to No.19, the Fleetwood Mac 1977 set "Rumours" (#17 vinyl) drops five to No.24, the 'Encanto' soundtrack plummets out of the Top 20 for the first time, down twelve places to No.27 (it's lowest position other than it's #29 debut in the first week of the year).
Taylor Swift moves down with "Red (TsV)" (32 to No.33) and "folklore" (34 to No.40), Lewis Capaldi drops back down seven places to No.43, followed by a twenty-seven place tumble to No.44 for the Future set "I Never Liked You", while Adele's second fall for the week sees her "25" set decline eleven places to No.50. Further Top 50 dropouts from last week were for Arcade Fire (#11), Kylie Minogue (#27) and Mark Vincent (#41).

* #1 (LP#5) - Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers by Kendrick Lamar (Top Dawg/Aftermath/Interscope)

* #2 (LP#5) - Dance Fever by Florence + the Machine (Virgin)

* #6 (LP#1) - Butterfly Blue by Mallrat (Dew Process)

* #11 (V/A) - Eurovision Song Contest: Turin 2022 by Various Artists (Universal Denmark) rises into the Top 100 this week (LW-168) thanks to the broadcast last weekend in Turin, Italy of the 66th Eurovision Song Competition, which was won by the Ukrainian entry and their track "Stephania". Australia's entry by Sheldon Riley and "Not the Same" made it to No.8 in the jury voting, but dropped to No.15 after the audience voting was included. The album continues it's annual entry of the music from the ceremony charting, which began in 2012 (the album's entering, not the competition!).

* #35 (LP#11) - Dropout Boogie by The Black Keys (Nonesuch) is the eleventh studio and now ninth Top 50 entry for the American rock duo, who charted exactly one year ago with their tenth album "Delta Kream" (HP-8, May 24th, 2021), while they scored a No.1 with "Turn Blue" (LP#8) for one week on May 19th, 2014.

* #41 (LP#1) - A Light for Attracting Attention by The Smile (XL/Inertia) is the debut studio album for the English rock group, which landed at No.19 on their homeland chart this week. The trio are made up of two Radiohead members Thom Yorke (vocals) and Johnny Greenwood (guitar), alongside Sons of Kemmet drummer Tom Skinner, plus the album was produced by longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.

* #46 (LP#1) - Listen to the Water by Luke Steele (EMI Australia) is the first solo release for the former Empire of the Sun and The Sleepy Jackson lead singer. This is now his seventh overall albums chart entry, having logged two with The Sleepy Jackson; "Lovers" (LP#1, HP-23, July 2003) and "Personality - One Was a Spider, One Was a Bird" (LP#2, HP-10, July 2006), and three more with Empire of the Sun; "Walking on a Dream" (LP#1, HP-6, October 2008), "Ice on the Dune" (LP#2, HP-3, June 2013) and then "Two Vines" (LP#3, HP-7, November 2016), while he teamed up with Daniel Johns in 2018 for their project DREAMS, which spawned the album "No One Defeats Us" (HP-42, September 2018).

SG will be happy It's another album bomb! Worse than last weeks one, and we've STILL got another album bomb timed to go off around this time next friday as well. Fun times
ARIA need to put some RESPECT on Beth Gibbons' name. Shame it seems two of the best songs on the album have been seemingly left off, though they wouldn't have made the top 50 anyway.
Congratulations Kendrick! Now time for Harry Style next week

New cert below the Top 50:

Tones And I - Dance Monkey: 17x Platinum

EDIT: True Hijinx! Completely forgot that he released his debut the same week as 1D's Take Me Home.

New Entry #13 is listed twice at #7 & #5. Number 5 should be new entry #14. I couldn't work out why 15 songs went out and only 14 new entries were numbered
Haha thanks, usually I lose track of it when there's a big gap between entries but no excuse there
Dance Monkey is also notching up it's 156th week within the Top 100, 3 years within the Top 100. It's only left the T100 for a single week on Jan 3rd this year before returning the following week.
In a similar sense, this is only the 2nd time Blinding Lights has dropped out of the top 50, right as it ties the record for weeks in the top 50. Race is now on to see if it can get back in a few weeks or the alternative case, Lewis Capaldi puts out new music that brings Someone You Loved back instead.

Also fingers crossed MCR made the top 100! They were in the midweek top 50 but not certain that's enough.

Uh huh. Listening to 14 to 18 tracks I won't like is going to be fun while sick with COVID. Can't wait!
Holy shit Harry gonna go hamlin tomorrow.
Chartifacts updated for this week.
He has Hijinx.

He owns the Top 12 on Spotify and was just under 1,000 streams from owning the entirely Top 13 with his new album
I've added this week's ARIA Top 100 Singles chart entries to my site.

Hear them all here - https://www.top100singles.net/2022/01/every-aria-top-100-single-in-2022.html#show

There's seven debuts in the lower half of the Top 100 this week and none are Kendrick's remaining album tracks. Sucked in!
yay another year of no Eurovision songs charting!
Any news on the Eurovision songs? None of them appeared in the Spotify top 200 so I reckon nothing was remotely close to charting in the publicly revealed chart, but I wonder if anyone has any info
No Eurovision songs made the ARIA Top 500 this week, sadly.
maybe Arcade probably should still be charting.
After the Eurovision Australia Decides 2022 TV special back in March, Sheldon Riley's "Not the Same" and second-placed Voyager's "Dreamer" spent a week in the ARIA Digital Tracks chart at #23 and #38, respectively.
Here's the Eurovision songs that made the ARIA Digital Tracks chart this week...

UkraineStefania (Стефанія)Kalush Orchestra27
United KingdomSpace ManSam Ryder30
NorwayGive That Wolf a BananaSubwoolfer33
AustraliaNot the SameSheldon Riley38 (R/E)
SwedenHold Me CloserCornelia Jakobs41

Shame that the four other Kendrick Lamar tracks weren't allowed (boo ARIA!) but nice to see Another Love debut.
Thank you! Tragic numbers for the Eurovision in Australia this year, both in TV audience and in the charts.
lower entries updated for this week, no extra certs.
