More Amy Shark More Amy Shark

This week's Radio Monitor and TikTok charts have dropped and it's a big week for Amy Shark's Only Wanna Be With You, crashing into the Hot 50 at #34 in just its first week. That's no mean feat in a world where radio are taking longer and longer to jump on new tracks. Fellow Sony roster-mates Lil Nas X and Tom Grennan are among the week's other big movers, while radio has realised that having the #1 most streamed track in the country means the punters probably like it, with Sam Smith and Kim Petras' Unholy cracking the top 20 for the first time. 

A massive seventeen songs in the this week's Hot 50 have been taking places in the chart for six months or more, showing the stagnant state of playlists around the country. It's not much better over on Tik Tok as the kids return King Khan and BBQ Show to the top of the list with Thundercat, Sam and Kim and Phoebe Bridgers also having a good week. The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber's Stay is once again the most spun First Nations track on the NIMAs airplay chart, while triple j's most heard banger this week was Paramore's This Is Why

Over on the Countrytown Hot 50, Luke Combs continues his dominance with The Kind Of Love We Make still at the top (come on commercial radio, what does a country song need to do?), but James Johnston and Kaylee Bell continue to stalk, moving up to #2 with Same Songs. The week's big movers are Bailey Zimmerman, Cole Swindell and Lee Kernaghan, Mitch Tambo and Isaiah Firebrace while there are big new entries from Zac & George, Shania Twain, Storer, Jade Gibson and recent tourist Mackenzie Porter
