Lil Nas X, Billie Eilish Rule Australia’s Charts

Lil Nas X rides a 10th week atop Australia’s singles chart with “Old Town Road” (Columbia/Sony) while Billie Eilish’s debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (Interscope/Universal) this week returns to the summit of the national albums chart.

“Old Town Road” is now five-times platinum certified in Australia, where it draws level with Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” (from 1992), Sandi Thom’s “I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair)” (2006) and LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” (2011), all of which spent ten weeks in the top spot. It’s still some way off the record-holder, Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You,” which logged 15 weeks at the summit in 2017. 

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s “Señorita” (Sony/Universal) enjoys a flying start, bowing at No. 2 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The track easily eclipses the chart peak of their earlier collaboration, “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” which reached No. 33 in February 2016.

The top five is completed by Sheeran and Justin Bieber’s “I Don’t Care” (Universal/Warner), up 2-3; Eilish’s “Bad Guy” (Interscope/Universal), which holds at No. 4; and Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down” (Universal), down 3-5.

Also this week, Drake scores his 12th top 10 with “Money In The Grave” (Universal) his Best in the World Pack track featuring Rick Ross, which rises 12-7, while Italian trio MeduZa’s dance track “Piece Of Your Heart” (Neon/Universal) enters the top 10 for the first time in its six weeks on the chart. It rises 11-9.

And Lil Nas X scores a second top 20 with “Panini,” new at No. 17. It’s lifted from the rapper’s debut LP 7, which debuts on the ARIA Albums Chart this week at No. 5.

As Billie Eilish earns a sixth non-consecutive week at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, Lil Nas X enjoys the highest debut on the survey and producer Mark Ronson scores another top 10 with Late Night Feelings (Columbia/Sony), his first album in four years. It starts at No. 7.

Finally, Prince’s posthumous release Originals (Warner), a set of self-recorded versions of 15 songs made famous by others, opens at No. 18.
