'Flowers' hold onto #1 for a ninth week.

More Miley Cyrus More Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus holds the top of both charts this week, with her Flowers single embedded for a ninth week and her new album Endless Summer Vacation debuting at #1. 

Flowers and its ninth week at the top in Australia is also matched this week in both England and Ireland, while the track also logs an eighth week at the singles summit in Canada, falls to #2 in the U.S.A., rises back up to #2 in New Zealand and holds in the same spot in Germany. The ninth week at the top also makes Flowers the equal fourth longest-running #1 for this decade (now tied with Running Up That Hill) and is one of 28 songs to have logged that many weeks at the top in Australia.

Miley is also equal fourth on the list for 'Accumulated Weeks at #1: Singles; 2020s' as she has amassed 10 overall weeks at the top during this decade, tying with the ten weeks achieved by Dua Lipa, plus Miley Cyrus this week also ties another of her Father's chart feats as both Cyruses have now had dual #1 occupations, as Billy Ray did it for two weeks from October 11th, 1992 with Achy Breaky Heart and its parent album Some Gave All, and now Miley and Billy Ray have become the first to achieve such a peculiar chart anomaly, and the 141st time that this chart feat has occurred (since 1965), the last was for Taylor Swift for five weeks from October 31th, 2022.

Two weeks ago the sales between #1 and #2 were less than 200, this week thanks to Miley's new album entering at #1 the gap is under 300 sales, so there is a good chance that PinkPantheress and Ice Spice could gain the top spot either next week or the week after, as Boy's A Liar (Pt.2) is on hold at #2 for a fourth straight week, the same position it sits at in England and Ireland, while it sits atop the New Zealand singles chart for a fourth week and drops back slightly in both the U.S.A. (4 to #5) and Canada (5 to #6).

The entire top four songs are again on hold this week, with both Die For You by The Weeknd with Ariana Grande at #3 and SZA's Kill Bill at #4, both for a third consecutive week, while The Weeknd issued an updated edition of his Starboy album from 2016 with three bonus tracks on Friday (March 17th), including this new duet with Ariana.

Morgan Wallen rises one spot to a new peak of #5 with his track Last Night, while his #2 debut last week for his third album One Thing At A Time only drops to #4 on the ARIA Albums Chart, plus his single jumps to #1 in the U.S.A. (LW-5) and #2 in Canada (LW-7) this week, as does his album, which debuts at the top of both country's Album Charts. Last Night also matches its local peak to that of New Zealand's, where it is up three places from last week, while his LP is at #2 there also.

Escapism for RAYE and 070 Shake is back up one spot to #6, after which there's a two-place drop to #7 for recent tourist here Harry Styles and As It Was, logging its 41st week within the Top 10 (now equal 4th longest of all time alongside Dance Monkey).

The only Top 10 dropout this week is the Ed Sheeran track Shivers (HP-2, WI10-34), which drops back down four places to #14, his highest of three Top 50 entries this week. The only other Top 50 new certification goes to Sam Smith and Kim Petras with their Unholy track, which is down one place to #15 and now 4x▲Platinum in sales, followed by10:35 for Tiësto and Tate McRae (HP-13) which climbs back up three places to #16.

George Ezra is up three places to a new peak of #23 with Green Green Grass, followed by Zach Bryan and Something In The Orange rising back up to #24. Ed Sheeran's second chart entry Bad Habits drops down five to #25, and with the mass evacuation of many Harry Styles tracks this week, a heap of older tracks jump back up the chart, starting with the other Bad Habit within the Top 30 this week for Steve Lacy, which is up six spots to #27.

The Kid LAROI moves back up to #28 with his Love Again, while P!nk's Trustfall jumps back up five places to #29, and Luke Combs takes a ten-place leap to #30 with The Kind Of Love We Make, while his fourth album Gettin' Old is out next Friday March 24th, so expect this song to climb again for the next few weeks.

TOP 40

Elton John and Dua Lipa with Cold Heart rebound seven spots to #35, followed by a thirteen-place leap to #36 for Another Love by Tom Odell

Harry Styles only has four songs within the Top 50 this week (and seven within the Top 100) now that his national tour is over, with his first of three major Top 50 drops being for Late Night Talking, tumbling down twenty-one places to #37, after which The Weeknd's other Ariana Grande duet Save Your Tears dips one spot to #38.

Ed Sheeran finished off his Australian tour last week in Perth, which means he had two days of the last sales week where his shows were generating major sales, and that has helped him to also have eight Top 100 entries this week, with his final Top 50 entry being Perfect, which drops back down eleven places this week to #42. He also sits lower down with Shape Of You (#57), Celestial (#61), Thinking Out Loud (#79), Castle on the Hill (#82) and Photograph (#92).
