Another Friday, another week of Miley CyrusFlowers atop the Radio Monitor Hot 50. The top spot isn’t the only place that’s the same, though: Taylor Swift’s Anti-Hero and Celestial by Ed Sheeran maintain #2 and #3, respectively. 

P!nk’s Trustfall, The Kid LAROI’s Love Again, Oliver Tree & Robin Shulz, Lil Nas X and Post Malone & Roddy Rich haven’t moved, either, staying at #4, #7, #8, #9 and #10. Metro Boomin’ featuring The Weeknd & 21 Savage and Stephen Sanchez have swapped the #5 and #6 places from last week’s placements, but otherwise, it’s a stock-standard top ten.

The chart gets a bit more interesting further on, with Budjerah’s Therapy spending its second week 12 spots up from last week (#32 vs. #20). From #24 to #33, every artist has spent time in the top ten but has clearly moved downwards as other hits dominate. Lizzo, P!nk, Harry Styles, Beyoncé and David Guetta with Bebe Rexha all take up some of those places. After debuting at #56 last week, Latto’s Big Energy has boosted to #35 and Niall Horan’s Heaven spends a second week at #41.

On the TikTok chart, PinkPantheress and Ice Spice continue to dominate with Boy’s A Liar Part 2. The King Khan & BBQ Show’s Love You So returns to the chart after a few weeks away, but the rest of the tunes TikTok users are listening to are as eclectic as ever - you have Harry StylesSatellite wedged between Material Girl by Madonna and Who Am I? (What’s My Name) by Snoop Dogg alongside the South Park theme and a sped-up version of ceilings by Lizzy McAlpine.

On triple j, Flume and Isabella Manfredi have debuted at #1 with their new tune, Rhinestone 1.7.2., with Mae StephensIf We Ever Broke Up moving up 11 spots to #2, followed by pop-punk bangers by Stand Atlantic (Kill[her) and Paramore (C'est Comme Ca) snapping up the next places. Budjerah is also doing well on the triple j chart, with Therapy at #9 from #26 last week. Teenage Dads are at #17 with Hey Diego! and Father Time by Kendrick Lamar and Sampha has debuted at #15.

It’s another great week for The Kid LAROI on the NIMA chart, with Love Again at #1 and Stay, Thousand Miles and Without You at #3, #5, and #6, respectively. Budjerah is second, Ziggy Ramo and Alice Skye are fourth with Sugar Coated Lies, Baker Boy and Bernard Fanning’s take on Wish You Well is #7, while the top ten closes with AMP winners King Stingray’s Raypirri, Solid Rock by Goanna & William Barton & Moss & Tasman Keith, and Beddy Rays debuting at #10 with Rhythms.

James Johnston has ended The Wolfe Brothers’ reign on the Countrytown Hot 50, with Got It Good toppling Livin’ The Dream. Jelly Roll stays strong at #3 with Son Of A Sinner, while Morgan Wallen has leapt up 36 spots to land in fourth with Last Night. Hardy and Lainey Wilson’s collaboration, Wait In The Truck is eighth, and Casey Barnes nabs #9 and #10 with Summer Nights and Small Town, respectively. 

After sitting at #22 last week and three weeks on the chart, Brooke McClymont & Adam Eckersley are #20 with Country Music, You & Beer. Elsewhere on the chart are Kaylee Bell, Luke Combs, The Buckleys, Lee Kernaghan with Mitch Tambo & Isaiah Firebrace, Melody Moko, Ashleigh Dallas and many more. It’s another great showing for Australian country music.
