More Ed Sheeran More Ed Sheeran

After knocking Miley Cyrus from the top spot on the Radio Monitor Hot 50 last week, Ed Sheeran maintains #1 with Eyes Closed. Miley’s Flowers was #1 for 17 weeks – how long will Ed’s run last?

Last week’s #5, Creepin by Metro Boomin feat. The Weeknd and 21 Savage, is #3 this week, followed by P!nk’s Trustfall, Tiesto and Tate McRae’s 10:35, Morgan Wallen’s Last Night (up two spots from last week’s #8), Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding’s Miracle (up four places from last week's #11), Coi Leray’s Players (down two spots from last week's #6), Post Malone’s Chemical, and Raye and 070 Shake’s Escapism, up to #10 from last week’s #13.

Taylor Swift’s Karma has also experienced an impressive leap forward, going from #18 to #11 on this week’s Hot 50. Country music is enjoying more popularity on the chart, with Luke Combs’ take on the Tracy Chapman classic, Fast Car, at #15 after four weeks on the Radio Monitor Hot 50. The Kid LAROI’s Love Again currently sits just outside the Top 20 at #21, while Ricki-Lee’s empowerment anthem On My Own is at #25. Should be higher.

Tina Turner’s The Best has entered the chart on the week of her passing. The Best is #33 on the chart – where will Tina be next week? Harry Styles has a doubleheader at #36 and #37 with previous #1s Late Night Talking and As It Was, while Kylie Minogue debuts at #41 with Padam Padam. Styles closes the Radio Monitor Hot 50 with Satellite.

On the NIMA Chart, The Kid LAROI’s Love Again retains the top spot for the 17th week. His other tunes, Stay featuring Justin Bieber, and Thousand Miles are at #3 and #10, respectively. Without You has left the chart after over 50 weeks.

Jessica Mauboy remains at #4 with Right Here Right Now, while Djanaba’s Don't Really Care has leapt from #8 to #5. Miss Kaninna enjoys a #6 debut with Blak Britney, as KIAN & Becca Hatch sit in seventh place with All Of Me. Dean Brady is ninth with Falling, as Baker Boy and Bernard Fanning take out #8 with Wish You Well.

The reign of Morgan Wallen continues on the Countrytown Hot 50, with Last Night keeping Kaylee Bell, Casey Barnes and Jackson Dean from the top spot for the eleventh consecutive week.

At #5 is Fast Car by Luke Combs for another week. Combs stays ahead of Miss That Girl by ERNEST (#6), WE GREW UP ON (#7) and GOT IT GOOD (#8) by James Johnston and Dancin’ In The Country by Tyler Hubbard (#9).

Country Proud by Taylor Moss makes an impressive debut by rounding out the top 10. Last week’s #30, Now She Ain’t by Brad Cox, has experienced a great boost, hitting #13 this week. Love Like That by The Wolfe Brothers and The Shires lands at #20 after spending last week at #57, as Jelly Roll’s latest single, Need A Favour, debuts at #37.

After 19 weeks on the chart, Hardy and Lainey Wilson’s Wait In The Truck has fallen from last week’s #11 to #25. At #34 is another debut, this time from Hayley Jensen with Bring It On. Darlinghurst’s Pretty Doesn’t Make You Good debuts at #41, while like the Radio Monitor Hot 50, a previous #1 holder, The Wolfe Brothers, close the chart with Livin’ The Dream.
