Eight weeks strong and no signs of slowing down as new album ‘Endless Summer Vacation’ drops.

More Miley Cyrus More Miley Cyrus

The week that Miley Cyrus issues her eighth studio album Endless Summer Vacation, is also the week that she logs an eighth stay at the top of the Australian Singles Chart with Flowers.

Miley's new album also was also issued on the same day she delivered the Backyard Sessions companion live performance on Disney+, of her singing the entire album live in her backyard, while the new set also contains duets with Brandi Carlile and Sia amongst its twelve tracks. Flowers remains also at the top of the singles chart in England, Ireland (also 8th week) Canada, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands, World Chart (7th week), Denmark and Portugal (both 4th week) and Sweden (2nd week), while it was knocked off the top spot in The U.S.A.

Flowers also increases Miley's 'Weeks at #1' to now nine during this decade, and the track's continual run at the top is the first time since 2021 that a song has held the #1 slot for such a long time, as from July 19th to October 18th, 2021 Stay for The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber racked up an initial 14 weeks at the top, and since then we've had another eight-week run at the singles summit, but that was a broken stay, for As iI Was by Harry Styles eventually racked up eight weeks from three separate stays (April, May-June, August), which also means that Harry and Miley are both the fifth equal longest #1 songs this decade, and with Miley's new album dropping the song could hold onto the top spot for a few more weeks.

The entire Top 5 singles are on hold this week, with PinkPantheress and Ice Spice at #2 for a third straight week with Boys A Liar (part 2), while the track is also in the same position in England and Ireland, plus it scores a third week at #1 in New Zealand and falls back slightly in both The U.S.A. (3 to #4) and Canada (2 to #5), with those last two regions seeing a slip back down the chart due to the jump up their charts for our #3 holder Die for You by The Weeknd and Ariana Grande, which logs a second week in that position/peak and the track is also at #3 in England (LW-4) and Ireland (LW-6), #2 in New Zealand (LW-4) and Canada (LW-19) and jumps into the #1 spot in The U.S.A. (LW-6). Check out the pair's other entry which also climbs this week later on.

SZA logs a second week at #4 with her KIll Bill track, which is also now 2x▲Platinum, while Harry Styles remains at #5 for a third straight week with his former #1 As It Was, which is still high as he finished his national tour here this past week, before moving to New Zealand, where this song also leaps this week (11 to #6), while he also has a total of eight songs within our Top 50 and seven inside the NZ Top 40, plus all up As It Was is now spending it's 40th week within the Top 10 (equal 5th longest of all time), and the track is newly certified as 7x▲Platinum in sales.

Ed Sheeran finished up his national tour this past week in Perth on Sunday, so he might still land a few sales for next week's chart, but for this week his former #2 peaking track Shivers jumps up seven spots to land back within the Top 10 at #10, notching up a 34th week inside of the ten, plus the track logs it's one-and-a-half-years (78 weeks) chart anniversary, having only ever left the Top 50 for a single week (Jan 2nd) during that time.
