On this week's Radio Monitor chart, P!nk is enjoying the #1 spot in the Top 50 with Never Gonna Not Dance Again in its first week. That's pretty incredible and a testament to how keen Australian listeners still are for the iconic pop artist. It was only a couple of weeks ago that Taylor Swift debuted at #1 for the first time in Hot 50 Chart history and just two weeks later P!nk has done it again.  Amy Shark, meanwhile, has moved to #18 on the Top 50 chart after five weeks. Taylor Swift's Anti-Hero is at #5, and the dominant Sam Smith and Kim Petras collaboration, Unholy, is still in the top 10 at #7. 

Elsewhere in the Top 50, fifteen tracks were released in either 2020 or 2021, with the presently-touring Kings Of Leon at #50 with Sex On Fire from 2008 and a song that apparently won't ever leave the chart, the Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars hit, Uptown Funk at #43 after coming out in 2015 making up this week's outliers. Australian radio remains stagnant and enjoys blasts from the past.

Over on the TikTok charts, the kids still love King Khan And BBQ Show - currently at #2 - while the latest Meghan Trainor single, Made You Look, is the most-played song on the platform. Strangely, the Family Guy main theme is at #11, and weirder still, the festive season has already kicked off, with Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You already at #10. Drake and 21 Savage sit above Anti-Hero with Rich Flex at #4.

Wongo, Steve Lacy, and Alison Wonderland top the triple j charts with Blip, Mercury, and Down The Line, respectively. One of October's most-played bangers, Paramore's This Is Why is currently #15. The Kid LAROI is still the most-spun First Nations artist on the NIMAs airplay chart, with Thousand Miles, the Justin Bieber collab Stay and Without You making up the top three songs of the chart.

Over on the Countrytown Hot 50, James Johnston and Kaylee Bell hold on to another week at #1 with Same Songs; Dustin Lynch has moved from #5 to #2 with Party Mode, while Keith Urban has entered the chart at #41 with Street Called Main. The biggest movers are Zac & George and The Buckleys, who moved from #75 to #11, and #34 to #10, respectively. Darlinghurst has also moved up from #21 to #13, and Mackenzie Porter remains in the top 20 at #19 with Pickup.
