More Morgan Wallen More Morgan Wallen

Last week Last Night gave Morgan Wallen the first #1 song for a Solo Male Artist this year with barely 300+ difference in sales, but this week the track has a lead of over 1000 sales, and with his One Thing At A Time album rising back up to #2 this week, plus holding for a sixth straight week in both North America and Canada, he logs five Top 100 entries this week in Australia with You Proof (#28), Thinkin' About Me (#62), One Thing At A Time (#94) and returning at #96 is Wasted On You. Other than its third week at #1 in The U.S.A. Last Night also climbs to a new peak of #2 in New Zealand, #31 in England, holds its #8 peak in Ireland, and is on hold at #3 in Canada. 

Three songs are on hold within the Top 10 this week, with the recent twelve-week running #1 for Miley Cyrus and Flowers remaining at #2, while it's only at the top overseas in Canada (13th week) after it lost the top spot in New Zealand to a fifth week returning (last at the top there on January 13th) Kill Bill for SZA which locally is back up one spot to #3, thanks to a new remix featuring Doja Cat issued in the past week. They swap places with a one-spot dip to #4 for Boy's A Liar (pt.2) for Pink Pantheress and Ice SpiceThe third and final non-mover within the Top 10 is The Weeknd and Ariana Grande's track Die For You at #5 for a fifth straight week, with The Weeknd issuing a new track on Friday (April 21st) from The Idol TV soundtrack called Double Fantasy featuring guest rapper Future

Debuting within the Top 10 at #6 is 22-year-old American singer-songwriter David Kushner with his first Top 10, second Top 50 and third Top 100 entry called Daylight, having previously charted locally with Mr Forgettable (HP-91, March 14th, 2022) and his first entry Miserable Man (HP-36, January 17th, 2022) both taken from his debut EP Footprints I Found, while this new track is from his forthcoming untitled debut album. David's Daylight track has landed first week at #1 in The Netherlands, #3 in England, #2 in Ireland, Norway and Lithuania, #5 in Germany and New Zealand and Top 20 berths in both Finland and Sweden. 

Landing his first ever Top 10 single in Australia this week is country artist Luke Combs with his cover of the Tracy Chapman #4 single from 1988 Fast Car, which jumps up five places to land at a new peak of #7 after three weeks of charting, plus it also debuts at #30 in NZ this week. His previous highest charted entry was a #14 peak in early November 2020 with Forever After All, while the track joins his current #4 Album Gettin' Old, and three further Top 100 entries, The Kind of Love We Make (#37), When it Rains it Pours (#65) and Beautiful Crazy (#88). 

Both Taylor Swift's single Anti-Hero and its parent album Midnights log half a year (26 weeks) upon our charts this week, with the song down two places this week to #8, scoring its 23rd week within the Top 10, with a three-place decline to #10 for the longest running Top 10 at the moment, logging it's 44th week in the ten is Harry Styles' As it Was (now one week shy of tying with Ed Sheeran's Bad Habits at 45 weeks). 

In between those two falling tracks is the third new entry to the Top 10 this week and second to climb, as the girl-group FIFTY FIFTY see their first chart entry Cupid jump up eight places to land at #9, joining other Asian-Pacific countries to make it a Top 10 hit, as it hits a new peak of #7 in New Zealand this week, having already hit #1 in Singapore and Malaysia, #2 in Indonesia and Philippines and #4 in Vietnam, plus it rises internationally in England (34 to #26), Ireland (41 to #32), The U.S.A.

TOP 20: 

Holding at #11 this week is the Stephen Sanchez and Em Beihold track Until I Found You, followed by the first two of the three Top 10 departing tracks, Escapism for RAYE and 070 Shake (HP-3x3, WI10-15) down two to #12 (plus she issued a new remix on Friday for her Flip A Switch track, this time featuring Coi Leray), followed by a four place drop to #13 for Ed Sheeran's latest single Eyes Closed (HP-6, WI10-3), who also issued a new track from his May 5th due album - (minus), this one called Boat, so that could sail into the charts next week. 

Drops within the Top 20 also occur for Players by Coi Leray (13 to #16), Calm Down by Rema and Selena Gomez (16 to #18), I Ain't Worried for OneRepublic (15 to #19) and the third and final Top 10 dropout, last week's highest entry by Drake and Search & Rescue, falling twelve places to #20, while it entered at #2 in the U.S. and #4 in his native Canada this past week. Rising back up seven places to #17 is the 140-week charted Heat Waves for Glass Animals; its last Top 20 appearance was on January 30th at #18. 

TOP 30: 

The only rising track within the Top 30 this week is the current Irish #1 single (4th week) for Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding's Miracle, which rises four places here to a new peak of #24, while it drops to #2 in England (more on that later). After two weeks of peaking at #19, the George Ezra entry Green Green Grass falls back down six places to #25, followed by a four-place drop to #26 for Unholy by Sam Smith and Kim Petras, while a two-place dip occurs for 10:35 for Tiësto and Tate McRae to #27, plus Tiësto issued his new album on Friday called DRIVE (which features this track), so the song could rebound next week, while the final big fall goes to Meghan Trainor and Made You Look, down seven to #30, also scoring it's half-year (26 weeks) chart milestone. 

TOP 40: 

Debuting at #64 last week was a new duet between Labrinth and Billie Eilish called Never Felt So Alone, which this week jumps up thirty-three places to score a Top 50 entry at #31 this week, becoming Labrinth's ninth Top 50 entry since he started charting in 2012, with the only other rising track within the Top 40 this week being a one-place rise to #34 for JVKE and his golden hour track. 

Lewis Capaldi is down two to #32 with Someone You Loved, while he also lands three further Top 100 entries with Forget Me (#54) and Before You Go (#81), and he debuts at #58 with Wish You The Best, which lands at #1 in England this week, plus #5 in Ireland and #34 in New Zealand. There are four place drops for Miss You by Oliver Tree and Robin Schulz (#33), The Kind Of Love We Make by Luke Combs (#37) and Cold Heart (PNAU Remix) for Elton John and Dua Lipa (#38), with Lizzy McAlpine's ceilings falling further this week, down five spots to #36. 

TOP 50: 

The Kid LAROI issued another new track on Friday called WHERE DOES YOUR SPIRIT GO?,  while this week, he dropped four places to #41 after three weeks of being stuck at #37 with his former #1 Stay with Justin Bieber. There's a seven-place drop to #43 for Ed Sheeran's Bad Habits, while he also reaches a new chart milestone this week with his 2017 track Perfect (#60), which clocks up its 312th week within the Top 100, that's equal to six years on the chart, the longest ever chart song in Australian Chart history. 

Falling five places each are Mr Brightside for The Killers (#44), Rock And A Hard Place by Bailey Zimmerman (#47) and the other Top 50 Bad Habit for Steve Lacy (#49). There are two tracks that return to the Top 50 this week, firstly the Labianca track People rises back up eight places to re-peak at #46 (previously on April 10th), and up four to #48 is the J. Cole entry No Role Modelz, which is now one-week shy of two years within the Top 100 (currently 103 weeks). Lastly, the #50 spot is held by the current #1 Club Track chart in the country for MK and Dom Dolla with Rhyme Dust


* #14 - Chemical by Post Malone (Mercury/Republic) is taken from the just dropped album for the U.S. rapper and singer called The Diamond Collection, a nine-track compilation of some of his singles, with the new track also landing first week within the Top 20 in England, Sweden (#11), Norway (#12), Ireland (#13) and New Zealand (#15). This new entry now becomes his 50th charted song in Australia (43 as lead, 6 as guest within the Top 100) and also his 42nd Top 50 entry, so a small nine-song collection from Post seems a little tame unless it's to be expanded over time.
