Decorating the #1 Singles spot for a seventh week is the Doja Cat track Paint the Town Red.

The Red track also picks up its first sales certification this week and is newly ▲Platinum in sales, while the track from her latest album Scarlet is also atop the charts again in New Zealand (eighth week), England, Canada (both fifth week) and returns to the top in The U.S.A. (second week). Paint the Town Red also now matches the seven week accumulated by Dave and Central Cee in June and July with Sprinter, the only two tracks this decade to have now logged seven (and no more) weeks at #1, with that former chart-topper leaving the Top 10 for the first time ever this week.

The Top 5 are all female acts this week, with a swap-around in the next two positions as Tate McRae is up one spot to a new peak of #2 with her new track greedy, which also hits a new chart height in England (#3), Ireland (#2), Germany (#5), Canada (#8), The U.S.A. (33 to #24) and holds at its peak in New Zealand (#3). Tate swaps places with the Kenya Grace track Strangers, down a place to #3, which is locally the #1 Dance Single again (for a third week), and holds at its peak of #2 in England, New Zealand, climbs to new peaks in Ireland (#3), Germany (#4), The U.S.A. (88 to #63) and Canada (21 to #18). 

The fourth and fifth Top 5 female acts (out of eight within the entire Top 10) this week are both on hold as Cruel Summer for Taylor Swift and Prada for cassö x RAYE x D-Block Europe are at #4 and #5 respectively, while Prada maintains it's #1 spot in Ireland for a second week and it's at #4 in England, #2 in Germany for a second stay, and rises to new peaks in New Zealand (#19) and Canada (98 to #73). 

Becoming the eighth longest running Top 10 song in Australia at 32 weeks is the Morgan Wallen track Last Night, which is up one spot this week to #6, and since the end of April we've had two country artists within the Top 10 non-stop, Morgan and Luke Combs, who this week pulls-out of the Top 10 garage and is replaced with a new country song, as Zach Bryan and Kasey Musgraves both land their first Top 10 berth with I Remember Everything, which moves up two places to score a new peak of #9 (after four weeks at #11), plus the track is also now Gold (●) in sales, plus it also cracks the NZ Top 10 (#10) and still resides overseas within the ten in The U.S.A. (#5), Canada (#4) and at a new peak in Ireland (#7).

The highest and only Top 50 debut this week occurs at #7 as BTS member Jungkook teams with Jack Harlow on his latest single 3D, which lands at the namesake of his previous single Seven, which debuted and peaked at #2 twelve weeks ago on July 24th, with that track on hold at #38 this week. Both tracks are taken from his forthcoming solo album Golden due on November 3rd, and overseas entries occur in England (#5), Ireland (#15), New Zealand (#9) and Japan (#17). This is now the second Top 10 placement for Junkkook and the fourth for Jack Harlow. Down two places each are the last two female acts within the Top 10 this week, as vampire by Olivia Rodrigo and Dance the Night for Dua Lipa drop to #8 and #10 respectively.
