How much longer can Flowers bloom? 

Miley Cyrus remains at #1 on this week's Radio Monitor Hot 50 Chart, with Taylor Swift's Anti-Hero right behind her. Ed Sheeran's Celestial and P!nk's TRUSTFALL snap up third and fourth spots, while Stephen Sanchez's 2021 single, Until I Found You, found a second shot at fame through the Netflix series Ginny And Georgia, is #5 — Creepin' by Metro Boomin feat. The Weeknd and 21 Savage has jumped up a spot to #6; so has The Kid LAROI's Love Again, which is now seventh on the chart. Miss You by Oliver Tree & Robin Schulz follows, with STAR WALKIN (League Of Legends Worlds Anthem) by Lil Nas X and Post Malone and Roddy Rich's Cooped Up closing the top ten.

Aside from The Kid LAROI at #7, the number of Aussies on the Hot 50 chart has steadily declined. 

We have Peking Duk feat. Darren Hayes with a re-worked Savage Garden classic, I Want You, at #14 (up six places from last week), Never Let You Go by Jason Derulo and Shouse at #28, The Music cover artist Budjerah debuting at #32 with Therapy, How Do I Say Goodbye by Dean Lewis at #35, and Vance Joy's Clarity at #49. The remainder of the chart is primarily dominated by acts from the UK and the US, including artists who are currently touring across Australia - Ed Sheeran and Harry Styles, as well as George Ezra, Lizzo, Eliza Rose And The Interplanetary Criminal, and more.

PinkPantheress & Ice Spice dominate the TikTok chart for a second week with Boys A Liar pt. 2. The #1 track is followed by Blue Blood by Heinz Kiessling from the album Music For Supermarkets, Five Minutes by Selamat Tinggal (2003), Kevin MacLeod's Monkeys Spinning Monkeys, and Shaggy feat. Brian & Tony Gold's Hey Sexy Lady, a sped-up nightcore special of Watch This (Lil Uzi Vert) [ARIZONATEARS Pluggnb Remix], and more featuring on the chart.

Coi Leray's Players is #1 on the triple j chart after MAY-A enjoyed a second week on top with Sweat You Out My System last week - the song is now eighth on the chart. Fred Again..'s Laneway appearances and secret shows have boosted Danielle (smile on my face) from #38 all the way to #2, while BENEE drives a Green Honda to third place.

Mae Stephens' If We Ever Broke Up is up from #144 to #13, Beabadoobee's Glue Song is #16 (from #102), and Eddie Benjamin's All For Nothing has made the remarkable leap from #551 to #19.
