Singles Chartifacts:

Debuting at No.1 this week is a duet between Sam Smith and Kim Petras called "Unholy", also landing a top spot in several other countries in the first week too.

"Unholy" (Capitol) becomes the 1119th No.1 Single in Australia (1940 to 2022), the 554th for ARIA (1983 to 2022), the 135th song to debut at No.1, the thirteenth chart-topping single for 2022 and the fifth NEW No.1 in the past six weeks, much faster than the start of the year, while the song has also landed first week in Sam's native England, along with Ireland, New Zealand and Greece (so far), while it also debuted at No..4 in Kim's native Germany.

The song is the first single from a forthcoming fourth studio album for Sam Smith, and it becomes the fifth duet for 2022 to hit the top (there were four in both 2020 and 2021), while for the 'Capitol' record label this is their 61st No.1 (since their first in 1946) and the label's first for this decade, as their last was with 5SOS's "Youngblood" (May 28th, 2018), while it's also now the second No.1 single for Sam Smith after his September 18th, 2017 two week run with "Too Good at Goodbyes" from just over five years ago, giving him now three overall weeks at No.1 in Australia, while for Kim this is her first entry, first Top 10 and also first No.1 single.

This is the first time that the word 'Unholy' has appeared in a No.1 song title, also it's a first time chart entry for the word too, with the closest and highest placed previous song being "Holy" for Justin Bieber (HP-4x6, Oct-Nov 2020), while it's also the first time at No.1 for Sam Smith as a non-binary artist (as he previously classed himself as gay), plus as Kim Petras is a transgender person, it's also the first time for such an artist to take the No.1 spot in Australia, while 40 years ago the first big hit for Culture Club and "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" was issued in early September 1982 in the UK, hitting No.1 on Oct. 23rd, 1982; while here it was at No.1 from Dec. 26th, 1982 for six weeks, showing how far we've come in the past forty years from when the first openly gay man/cross-dressing act took the top spot {thankx to hijinx for the lead} (BTW David Bowie never hit No.1 during his early career's different guises or gender reversal roles, his first No.1 here was with "Sorrow" (2 weeks from Feb. 4th, 1974) from his covers album 'Pin Ups').

The racy video clip for "Unholy" only dropped at midnight on Friday (Sept. 30th), so it could help the song remain at No.1 for a second week, unless the new Ed Sheeran track issued on Friday called "Celestial" takes the top spot next week. But for now this new No.1 song for Sam Smith also becomes the 217th chart-topping song by a British Act, while for Kim she becomes the first ever solo German Female Artist to hit No.1 in Australia and the tenth German act, with the eleventh No.1 song by a German artist, with the last being exactly 20 years ago, as on September 30th, 2022 Scooter spent two weeks at the top with their techno-cover of the Supertramp song "The Logical Song".

So after two weeks at No.1 the David Guetta and Bebe Rexha track "I'm Good (Blue)" drops down one spot to No.2 due to the massive No.1 entry, while the first of four non-movers within the Top 10 this week is at No.3, OneRepublic with "I Ain't Worried". Nicki Minaj and her "Super Freaky Girl" drops down two places to No.4, and in it's seventh chart week it has created a chart palindrome for it's positions, as it has gone 4-2-2-1-2-2-4, something of a rarity, after which is a one place dip to No.5 for Eliza Rose and her "B.O.T.A. (Baddest of Them All)" track.

Harry Styles toured Ireland this past week which is why he has the top two albums in that country this week, while his track "As it Was" remains at the summit in The U.S.A. for 15th week, and here the song has cracked half-a-year within the Top 10 (and Top 6) by not moving from No.6, after which are the further stable tracks within the ten, "Heat Waves" for Glass Animals at No.7 (WI10-86) and "Under the Influence" for Chris Brown at No.8. Swapping places at No.9 and No.10 are Steve Lacy's "Bad Habit" (up one to No.9 and now ▲Platinum in sales) and down one to No.10 are Nicky Youre and dazy with "Sunroof".

Post Malone and Doja Cat's "I Like You (A Happier Song)" is back up one spot to No.11, while the song hits a new peak of No.3 in the U.S.A. this week, plus Doja is one of three acts to have two songs (of a sort) within the Top 20, as her namesake song "Doja" for Central Cee is also up one spot to No.15 (thanks to his national tour at the moment). Elton John is the second act with two songs lying within the twenty (both dropping), while Lizzo is the third artist, as she dips one spot to No.14 with "About Damn Time" and her follow-up single "2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)" leaps up twenty-one chart-rungs to land just above 'Damn' at No.13, while the song also scores new peaks in Canada (49 to No.40), England (28 to No.21), Ireland (21 to No.17) and debuts in New Zealand (No.35).

Beyoncé lands her second Top 20 single from her "Renaissance (Act 1)" album as the track "Cuff it" jumps up ten places to a new peak of No.19, while the song is still within the New Zealand Top 10 at No.6 (NZ.LW-5) it also reaches new chart heights in England (20 to No.14), Ireland (17 to No.12) and rebounds in The U.S.A. (HP-13, 85 to No.61) and re-enters in Canada (HP-7, CA.TW-61). This is followed by two songs which climb within the Top 30, LF System's "Afraid to Feel" is back up one spot to it's former peak of No.22, while thanks to her tour finishing in Perth this last week the Billie Eilish track "Happier Than Ever" is up two to No.30.

The recent tourist Billie also sees her namesake track "BILLIE EILISH" for Armani White jumps up seven places to a new peak of No.35, while two new tracks climb into the Top 50 this week, the first being last week's lower fifty entry at No.97 for U.S. singer Omar Apollo and his first chart entry "Evergreen (You Don't Deserve Me at All)", taken from his April 2022 debut set "Ivory", which this week jumps up fifty places to land at No.47, while the song debuted at No.62 in The U.S.A., No.60 in Canada, No.54 in England, No.38 in Ireland and his highest placement of No.17 in New Zealand. After which is 17 year old Houston, Texas native D4vd with his first chart entry "Romantic Homicide", which has climbed 78-55-48 in its three weeks within the Top 100, while the song has so far peaked within the Top 10 in The Netherlands (HP-6) and entered at No.23 in New Zealand last week (NZ.TW-26).

The only song to leave the Top 10 this week is last week's highest entry for BlackPink and "Shut Down", which falls down thirteen places from No.5 to No.18, while they also decline with their older entry "Pink Venom'' (18 to No.41). Elton John's two Top 20 entries both dip this week, with "Hold Me Closer" with Britney Spears down one spot to No.12 and his Dua Lipa duet "Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)" falls three places to No.17, while Kate Bush hits a new milestone with her returned 1985 single "Running Up That Hill ( A Deal with God)", which logs it's 18th week within the Top 20, surpassing the seventeen weeks the song originally achieved during it's entire Top 100 run in 1985 on the AMR Chart, the song falling three places this week to land at No.20.

Ed Sheeran has no songs within the Top 20 this week, as his "Shivers" track drops four places to No.23, and his "Bad Habits" track is down one place to No.26, while they both might rebound slightly next week, as I mentioned earlier that he issued the new track "Celestial" on Friday (Sept. 30th), which is not featured on his latest album "= (equals)". Doja Cat's 'ELVIS' track "Vegas" and Joji's "Glimpse of Us" both drop five places each to No.25 and No.31 respectively, followed by Lewis Capaldi's latest entry "Forget Me" dropping eleven spots to No.32.

With a new Beyoncé track flying into the Top 20 this week, her older entry "Break My Soul" falls down seven places to No.40, while Dua Lipa's "Levitating" track is one-week shy of it's two-year chart anniversary and falls three spots to No.42 and into the Top 50 (41 to 50) section for only the second time, as the song was in this position three weeks ago, while there's a five place slip to No.45 for the Mac Miller and Temper Trap track "Love Lost".

* #21 - Star Walkin' ('League of Legends' Anthem) by Lil' Nas X (Columbia) is the theme for the 2022 League of Legends World Finals which took place this past week, with the artist also performing during the finals online. This new entry has placed highest in Australia (so far), while it also came in at No.38 in New Zealand and No.27 in Norway, and this new entry becomes the U.S. rapper and singers' seventh Top 50 placement in Australia. The previous theme from these games was for 'Arcane' and "Enemy" by Imagine Dragons (LW-63, HP-15, Jan. 2022).

Album Chartifacts:

The fifth studio album for Sydney band 5 Seconds of Summer named "5SOS5" becomes their fifth successive No.1 Album.

"5SOS5" (BMG/Warner) becomes the 959th No.1 Album in Australia (1965 to 2022), the 810th for ARIA (1983 to 2022), the 594th to debut at No.1, the sixth for the BMG label (and their third since they moved to Warner Music) and their second this year after Daniel Johns in mid-May, while it's also the 29th No.1 Album for 2022, the eleventh by an Australian act and the third successive local act at the top in the past three weeks after Meg Mac last week and Parkway Drive on Sept. 19th, plus the second time for 2022 where three Aussie acts have gone back-to-back-to-back at No.1, as it also occurred in Feb-March between Huskii, Midnight Oil and Gang of Youths.

All five of the albums issued by 5 Seconds of Summer have now gone to No.1, the first three with Capitol Records, their self-titled set (July 7th, 2014), then "Sounds Good, Feels Good" (Nov. 2nd, 2015) and "Youngblood" (June 25th, 2018), while their last set was via Interscope called "C A L M" (April 6th, 2020), all sets so far have logged a single week at No.1, while this new No.1 album becomes their sixth Top 10 album, as their "LiveSOS" set hit No.7 in December of 2014. 5SOS also tie with Silverchair as the Australian Act with ALL of their issued albums to hit No.1, and with Silverchair never again issuing new material 5SOS could overtake them with their next release, and then they will tie with the leader in Jimmy Barnes who saw his first six releases (5 studios and 1 Live set) all hit No.1.

On the listing for 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums (1965 to 2022)' the local act also climb to now 82nd as their five weeks at No.1 with five albums moves them up from equal 86th. Plus they are also now one of 15 acts with five No.1 Albums in Australia, alongside other local acts like Cold Chisel, Crowded House, Powderfinger, Delta Goodrem, Kasey Chambers and Olivia Newton-John, while ABBA were the last act to land their fifth No.1 in Australia, which ties in with another chart anomaly noted this week. As ABBA were the last palindrome act at No.1 (same letters spelt either backwards or forwards), and now the "5SOS5" set becomes the first palindrome title since "Pop" by U2 (1 week on March 16th, 1997), or at a stretch "Face to Face" by Westlife (3 weeks from March 6th, 2006) to hit the top spot {thanks to hijinx for the clues to this fact}.

5SOS also join Midnight Oil and Jimmy Barnes as the third Australian Act to land a second No.1 album during this decade, while the new No.1 set is also the 276th chart-topping album for an Australian Act (solo male or female, duo or group), and the "5SOS5" album is also the 420th by a group (local or overseas), and as I mentioned it being the 11th No.1 Album by Aussie Act this year, it's also the 11th by a group too, and the new set has also taken out the No.1 spot on the local vinyl sales chart, along with No.1 slots worldwide in England, The Netherlands (their third No.1 in both regions) and Scotland, plus a No.3 entry in New Zealand and No.5 in Germany.

Robbie Williams played the AFL Grand Final last weekend, which has helped his collection XXV to jump back up seventeen places to land at a new peak of No.2 (No.10 vinyl), with the set having previously debuted at No.8 on the 19th of September, thus it now logs a second week within the Top 10 and becomes Robbie's highest charted album in Australia since his seasonal set "The Christmas Present" climbed to No.1 in mid-December of 2019.

After five weeks at No.4 The Weeknd's collection "The Highlights" rises one spot to No.3, with the album retaking the New Zealand No.1 spot this week for a third stay. This is followed by a two place drop by last week's No.2 entry for BlackPink and "Born Pink", down to No.4, with the set debuting at No.1 in both The U.S.A. and Canada this past week. Harry Styles and his "Harry's House" album is stable at No.5 for a third week, plus it's also the No.1 Album in Ireland and No.12 vinyl album here.

Billie Eilish finished her national tour in Perth this past week, and both of her albums rise within the Top 10 this week, with her second album "Happier Than Ever" up one spot to No.6 and her first set "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" moving up three places to land right behind at No.7. Returning to the Top 10 after one week outside of the ten is "SOUR" for Olivia Rodrigo, up three spots to No.8, while future tourist Luke Combs has two albums within the Top 10, his first set "This One's for You" is down one to No.9 and his third release "Growin' Up" slides down four places to No.10.

Local artist Seth Sentry sees his debut album "This Was Tomorrow" (HP-6, Sept, 24th, 2012) return to the chart at No.11 this week thanks to it's tenth anniversary vinyl release, with the set placing at No.2 on this week's vinyl chart. Eminem's two best of sets sit back-to-back this week, with "Curtain Call 2" up three to No.14 and "Curtain Call: The Hits" climbing five spots to No.15, while also up five places are Maroon 5's "Singles Collection" and "Planet Her" for Doja Cat to No.16 and No.18 respectively.

The Weeknd also rises with "Starboy" (24 to No.17) and "After Hours" (43 to No.38), Harry Styles' "Fine Line" jumps back up ten places to No.19, followed by a six place rise to No.20 for Dua Lipa and her second set "Future Nostalgia". Taylor Swift rebounds with four albums within the Top 50, "1989" (32 to No.21), "folklore" (34 to No.27), "Lover" (38 to No.29) and "Red (TsV)" (52 to No.41). XXXTentacion's "Look at Me" album rises back up eight to No.22, Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" jumps eleven spots to No.25, Ed's "÷ (divide)" and Billie Eilish's EP "Don't Smile at Me" both move back up seven places to No.26 and No.30 respectively.

Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" rises seven spots to No.34, its first time back within the Top 40 since February 2022, while Justin Bieber's "Justice" also regains seven chart-rungs by escaping from its lowest position last week of No.46 to No.39 this week. There are two further seven place rises for "Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent" for Lewis Capaldi (49 to No.42) and "Doo-Wops and Hooligans" by Bruno Mars (56 to No.49) and then two eight place rises for "Live in Buenos Aires" by Coldplay (50 to No.43) and "Special" by Lizzo (53 to No.45) thanks to the albums second Top 20 single this week for "2 Be Loved (Am I Ready)" (34 to No.13). Lastly the recent shows around the country for Kane Brown sees his three week old entry "Different Man" move back four places to No.44 and the first best of collection for Nicki Minaj called "Queen Radio: Volume 1" has seen it's fifth week within the Top 100 and a rise of five places to a new peak of No.50.

A second older album to return to the Top 50 this week is the 30th Anniversary Edition of the second studio album for Alice in Chains called "Dirt", which returns at No.48 thanks to a No.3 vinyl chart placing, while the set also returned in England (No.36), Ireland (No.28) Scotland (No.7) and New Zealand (No.5). The album was their first to chart in Australia, starting its chart run on February 7th, 1993, before climbing to a peak of No.13 on the 1st of November, 1993 and logging 61 weeks within the Top 100 and becoming the 84th biggest album of that year.

Luke Combs' third Top 20 album this week is his second set "What You See Ain't Always What You Get", which is the first of three Top 10 dropouts, the album down three places to No.12 after 21 accumulated weeks within the Top 10, followed by last week's new entries for NCT 127 and "2 Baddies - The 4th Album" (3 to No.35) and leaving the Top 50 from last week's No.1 spot is the Meg Mac third album "Matter of Time".

After Luke's third chart placement, comes Ed Sheeran's "= (equals)" set which remains stable at No.13, with the set potentially rising back up next week thanks to a new single called "Celestial" being issued on Friday, the track not appearing on this album. After which the next album to drop is Beyoncé with her "Renaissance (Act 1)" set, which is only down two places to No.24, thanks to her albums second Top 20 single "Cuff it" (29 to No.19).

With only eight albums within the entire Top 50 dropping this week (three within the Top 10), there are two further double-digit dropping albums; Daniel Johns with his "FutureNever" set falls fourteen places to No.32, followed by an eighteen place slide to No.33 for Parkway Drive's recent No.1 set "Darker Still" (15 to No.33). Big dropping albums from last week's Top 50 are from Rina Sawayama (No.12), Ozzy Osbourne (No.14), Amy Sheppard (No.16), Pink Floyd's "Animals" (No.27) and TC Cassidy (No.28).

I know what you're all thinking. When was the last time we had a palindromic #1 album?

The boring answer is "="*
The slightly more technical answer is "Face to Face" by Westlife
The true answer is "Pop" by U2

Incidentally "Super Freaky Girl"'s chart run at the moment is the same backwards and forwards

*which was displaced from #1 by a palindromic band in ABBA

Also I think this is the first #1 single by artists known publicly at the time to be trans/non-binary (obviously Sam had a #1 single before that)

chartifacts updated, thanks to hijinx for the info too.
De-lurking to ask a question. When a song re-enters and is given a second chart run are it's downloads/plays/streams up until that week counted? or only the figures from that week? So for example with 'feel good inc' are any streams, YT plays and downloads included as well as those past week figures? It would honestly give those tracks quite a boost.
It's just the most recent week.
To the Australians who keep purchasing the latest iTunes single of *that* talentless Canadian wannabe-rapper bigot that most people have never heard of, stop it! You know who you are. I'm sick of having to listen to his misogynist, racist, homophobic, transphobic lyrics every time he shits out a new song and it makes the ARIA Digital Tracks chart.
@savagegrant: Is this about T*m M*cD***ld?
Be hilarious if someone here actually admits they bought it. Wouldn't be me though i would have the balls to admit it. Isn't me cause #1 i don't listen to any rap and #2 i haven't bought any music off ichoons in a loooooong time
I'd imagine that digital sales are just so abysmal now that any amount of attention, say a dozen people in Australia committed enough to buy a song, can cause a song to enter the Digital Tracks Chart. I remember last time I looked at the iTunes chart there were like five Mandarin 'musicians' with nonsensical English titles and generic flower photography as their covers and when I Googled like 10 different iterations of their names, nothing showed up. They had no Internet presence so I could only imagine you only need like a few bot accounts to generate traction for whatever to chart too (that being said, of course appearing on the iTunes chart for a few days does not = an appearance on the ARIA Charts).
