All the action from this week's radio airplay and TikTok charts.
Another week examining the Radio Monitor Hot 50 Chart equals another seven days at #1 for Miley Cyrus with Flowers. Her new album, Endless Summer Vacation, was released into the world today, with a new single, River, premiering today. Could her next single take over from Flowers after seven weeks at #1, or will Taylor Swift’s Anti-Hero move up just one place and take the top spot again?
P!nk’s Trustfall is third, with Ed Sheeran’s Celestial fourth, Creepin’ by Metro Boomin feat. The Weeknd & 21 Savage at #5, The Kid LAROI’s Love Again is sixth, with Peking Duk feat. Darren Hayes’ I Want You seventh, Miss You by Oliver Tree & Robin Schulz at #8, Coi Leray entering the top 10 after five weeks on the chart with Players at #9 (last week #13) and Lizzo closing the top 10 with Special.
Elsewhere on the Hot 50, Niall Horan’s Heaven has moved up ten spots (last week #41), The Weeknd’s Die For You has regained popularity after the reworked version featuring Ariana Grande recently released - the song has gone from #165 to #38. The PinkPantheress number, Boy’s A Liar has also entered the Hot 50 at #45, up from last week’s #89. After seeing the song’s movements across the TikTok and triple j charts, it’s likely that the track will also dominate the Hot 50 in due course.
The most popular songs on the TikTok Chart this week are It's Called: Freefall (Sped Up) by Rainbow Kitten Surprise, the previously mentioned Boy’s A Liar (not featuring Ice Spice, though), Aesthetic by Tollan Kim, Follow The Leader by Rumba Del Sol, Love You So by The King Khan & BBQ Show, and ceilings (sped up) by Lizzy McAlpine. Elsewhere is You Gotta Move by Mississippi Fred McDowell, Meghan Trainor’s Mother, Beat Automotivo Tan Tan Tan Viral by WZ Beat, and Left Hand Free by alt-J. What a tune.
Over on triple j, Eliza Rose has started 2023 with a bang, debuting at #1 with Better Love. The Hottest 100 #2 artist is followed by Benee in a Green Honda, Comma’s by ONEFOUR feat. CG, San Cisco’s Lost Without You (last week #48), and Coi Leray’s Players. Alex Lahey has entered the top 20 at #10 with Good Time, after landing at #22 on the chart last week. Beddy Rays’ Rhythms is #12, up from #63, and Halsey’s solo Die 4 Me is #18, a whopping move up from last week’s #370. D’Arcy Spiller closes the top 20 with her new song, Curveball, up from the song’s #85 entry last week.
The Kid LAROI and Budjerah snap up the top two spots on the NIMA Chart for a third week, with Love Again and Therapy, respectively. The Kid LAROI is also third, sixth and eighth with STAY, Thousand Miles and Without You. Sugar Coated Lies by Ziggy Ramo feat. Alice Skye is fourth, Beddy Rays’ Rhythms is fifth, Wish You Well by Baker Boy feat. Bernard Fanning remains at #7, King Stingray’s Raypirri is ninth, and Charlie Needs Braces debuts at #10 with Saltwater People.
On the Countrytown Hot 50, James Johnston spends a second week at #1 with Got It Good. He’s followed by Morgan Wallen’s Last Night, Amy Sheppard’s Couple Goals, Keith Urban’s Street Called Main, and another track for Morgan Wallen, One Thing At A Time, at #5. After spending last week at #24, Kaylee Bell has moved up a dozen spots with Boots And All. Other artists who have moved up are Melody Moko with Jesus Year (at #33, last week #45), and Jimmie Allen’s Down Home breaking into the Hot 50 at #48, after spending last week at #57.
