The Barbie track for Billie Eilish What Was I Made for? holds for a second week at #1 in Australia.

...Made for? now matches the two weeks that Billie Eilish held with her previous #1 hit here Bad Guy, while if it holds again next week it will become her longest running #1 locally, with more on that potential competition to next week's top-spot down at #5 this week. The highest charting of the three top five entries from the Mattel movie Barbie is also holding at #1 in Ireland, where half of their top ten is made up of Barbie soundtrack entries. Here we see Dua Lipa rise one spot to a new peak of #3 with Dance the Night, while it swaps places with Barbie World by Nicki Minaj, Ice Spice and Aqua, which drops to #4 after two weeks of playing at #3. England has Billie at #2, Dua Lipa at #3 and Nicki at #5, while in Ireland it's Billie at #1, Dua at #2, then Nicki at #6, Speed Racer for Charli XCX at #7 and Ryan Gosling with I'm Just Ken (16 to #10). The album from the movie is also at #2 this week in Australia, New Zealand and Canada and #4 in The U.S.A.

Holding for a tenth straight week at #1 in England and a ninth broken week in New Zealand is Sprinter for Dave and Central Cee, while locally the song remains at #2, logging it's third non-consecutive week in that position, while the other seven weeks of it's chart-run were spent at #1. The third and final non-mover within the top ten this week is at #5, vampire for Olivia Rodrigo, which was supposed to fall to #6 this week (it has so far moved 1-2-3-4-5), but alas it stalls at #5, and Olivia has just issued a new song on Friday, the rocking-melodic bad idea right?, which could fly into the chart next week (or give her another #1, which would be a new chart-feat in itself). 

The second swap-around within the top ten this week is at #6 and #7, as Taylor Swift is back up one spot to #6 with Cruel Summer, while down one spot to #7 is Last Night for Morgan Wallen, which loses the top spot in Canada this week to new Travis Scott music, but it regains the #1 slot in The U.S.A. for a 15th overall stay as their top-selling song. Moving up one place each are Gunna with FukUMean and Fast Car for Luke Combs to #8 and #9 respectively, while Lukes cover track cracks the New Zealand top ten for the first time after 18 weeks of charting, it jumps 22 to #10 this week (former NZ peak #14 in July), while the song also scores a new peak in England (#45) and is at #2 in The U.S.A. and #3 in Canada. 

The highest new entry for the week is the second new song from Doja Cat from her forthcoming fourth album (no title or date known as yet), entering at #10 is Paint the Town Red, which follows on from Attention (HP-30, June 26th 2023), and becomes her twenty-second Top 100 entry (17 as lead, 4 as guest), 17th Top 50 placement, plus her sixth Top 10 entry (five as lead, one as guest). The song samples the second ever chart entry here for Dionne Warwick called Walk on By (HP-28, peaked June 1964), which has also been a smaller hit locally for Gloria Gaynor (only in Perth #39) Jo Jo Zep (minus The Falcons) (HP-55, peaked late February 1983), and most recently by Seal (HP-94, March 2005).

TOP 30: 

NEW PEAK: goes to Charli XCX and her Barbie soundtrack entry Speed Drive, which only motor's up two places to a new peak of #22, and is the smallest of the nine climbing tracks within the top thirty this week.
