While Miley Cyrus holds onto #1 for another week.

More Miley Cyrus More Miley Cyrus

Embedded for a fourth week at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart is Miley's Flowers, with an extra seedling for the track this week too. 

After four consecutive weeks at #1 Flowers for Miley Cyrus has by-passed Gold sales status and bloomed straight into ▲Platinum accreditation this week, plus the track is now the longest-running #1 single since Taylor Swift and her Anti-Hero spent six weeks at the top of the singles chart from October 31st, 2022. The track is again at the top in England, Ireland, New Zealand (all fourth week), The U.S.A., Canada, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands, World Chart (all third week), Norway and France (both second week) and newly at the summit in both Denmark and Sweden, plus again at #2 in Germany (former #1), Finland and Portugal (peak positions).

Also holding for a fourth week is the SZA track Kill Bill at #2, matching the position on the Albums Chart with the song's parent album SOS (LW-3). Last week was the post-triple j Hottest 100 chart, while this past week the Grammy Award were held, and that influences some of this week's singles chart, as winner for 'Best Single Pop, duo, group performance' went to Sam Smith and Kim Petras for their track Unholy, which the pair also sung on the night of the Awards, all helping the song to climb back up two places and land at #3, while the track was last certified as ▲Platinum on Nov. 28th, 2022, this week it is newly 3x▲Platinum in sales.

Sam and Kim's rise back up pushes down Escapism for RAYE with 070 Shake to #4, while her debut album My 21st Century Blues has landed at #2 in her home country of England, it has not charted within our Top 50 Album this week. Taylor Swift won a single Grammy this year for 'Best Video Clip' for All Too Well, and her current single Anti-Hero is back up one spot to #5, while she also retakes the albums summit this week with Midnights for a twelfth overall week at #1 there.

Reclaiming his position within the Top 10 this week is local artist The Kid LAROI with last week's entry for Love Again leaping up eight places this week to land at a new peak of #6, becoming his sixth Top 10 single locally and his first since Thousand Miles debuted and peaked at #4 from early May of 2022, plus he issued another track on Friday (Feb. 10th) called Kids are Growing Up (Part 1), his third new track for 2023. 

Not moving from the #7 spot is the Oliver Tree and Robin Schulz teaming for their version of Miss You, followed by three rising tracks; Creepin' for Metro Boomin', The Weeknd and 21 Savage and I Ain't Worried (WI10-27) for OneRepublic, both up a single spot each to #8 and #10 respectively. One of the multiple Grammy Award winners this past week was Harry Styles, who scored 'Album of the Year', 'Best Pop Vocal Album' and 'Best Engineered Album' all for Harry's House, while he performed the album's lead single As it Was on the night, which has helped that track to climb back up six places and land at #9 this week, racking up its 36th week within the Top 10, becoming now the seventh longest running Top 10 entry in Australian Chart History.

Two more songs which climb into the Top 50 this week are South Korean five-piece girl-pop act NewJeans with OMG, up six spots to a new peak of #46, having so far travelled 57-73-64-52 within the lower fifty, plus they have a further lower chart entry called Ditto (HP-54, peaked Jan. 16th, 2023).

* #25 - Boy's a Liar by PinkPantheress (part 2 feat. Ice Spice) (Parlophone) is the first chart entry for the British rapper who issued this track in mid-December of 2022, but in the past two weeks it's seen an updated version with New York rapper Ice Spice adding her rapping to the track, which has helped the song this week to leap up 185 places from last week and debut at #25 (according to the ARIA Chart site). Similar chart feats also occur in England (45 to #8), Ireland (returning at #14), and New Zealand (#10 debut this week). 

* #30 - Last Night by Morgan Wallen (Big Loud/Mercury/Republic) is taken from the upcoming third studio album for the American Country singer called One Thing at a Time, due on March 3rd (3 weeks away). This track was preceded by Thought You Should Know (May 2022) and its previous chart-entry You Proof (HP-70, May 23rd, 2022). This new track becomes his first ever Top 50 entry in Australia, while his third Top 100 placement, as he made it to #88 for two weeks on the Diplo track Heartless (peaked October 14th and 28th, 2019).
