In what is traditionally a quiet week on the charts, the Christmas tide went out, with some favourites from 2021 rejoining the list including Marshmello x Jonas Brothers, Brando, Adele and P!nk

Over on the Countrytown Hot 50, The Wolfe Brothers are back in charge with Kids On Cassette, knocking off Jordan Davis and Luke Bryan after just one week at the top. The big mover of the week is James Johnston who's latest hit Small Town moves up to #3 this week and is a real contender to snatch the #1 position next week. It's also been a good week for Adam Brand, joining the top 20 for a new chart peak at #18 with Still The One as well as a big re-entry for Michael Carpenter & The Bank Brothers with their latest single Follow Me Down To The River.

The NIMA chart starts the year as it ended the last with The Kid LAROI still firmly in charge. This week also marks a full year on the chart for his big 2021 hit Without You and exactly six months of Stay taking out the #1 spot. Stay is also sitting atop the Aussie 20 for another week, while Lime Cordiale have taken out #1 on the triple j 20 with their Edris Elba collaboration What's Not To Like
