Jack Harlow is lovin life at the top of Australia’s singles chart.
With “Lovin on Me” (Atlantic/Warner), the Louisville rapper debuts at No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart, published Friday, Nov. 17, for his fifth top 10 on the national chart, and second leader after “First Class” logged two weeks at the top last year.
Harlow holds off Tate McRae’s “Greedy” (up 3-2 via RCA/Sony) and Doja Cat’s “Paint The Town Red” (down 2-3 via RCA/Sony), while a pair of Taylor Swift songs complete the top 5, “Is It Over Now? (Taylor’s Version) [From The Vault]” and “Cruel Summer” (both via Universal), respectively.
“Houdini” becomes the U.K. pop star’s 11th top 10 single in Australia, a growing collection that includes her contribution to Elton John’s “Cold Heart,” remixed by PNAU, which reigned for 10 weeks in 2021 and 2022. Tame Impala honcho Kevin Parker is credited as a producer on “Houdini,” which will appear on Lipa’s forthcoming third studio album.
Over on the ARIA Albums Chart, Taylor Swift locks on for a third week at No. 1 with 1989 (Taylor’s Version), which places ahead of two debutants.
Stray Kids roll in at No. 2 with Rock-Star (ING/Universal), the K-pop outfit’s fifth charting LP or EP in Australia. Rock-Star matches the No. 2 peak for Stray Kids’ 5-Star from earlier in 2023.
Close behind is The Kid Laroi, whose first solo LP The First Time (Columbia/Sony) arrives at No. 3 on the Australian tally. Born and raised in inner-city Sydney, Laroi (real name Charlton Howard) ruled the ARIA Chart in 2021 for a single week with his mixtape F*ck Love (Savage). The Kid is coming home next year for his first stadium tour on home soil, presented by TEG Live and announced earlier this week.
The Beatles’ revolution is in full swing, as 1967-1970 (The Blue Album) (Capitol/Universal) returns to the top 10, at No. 8, matching its original peak position from 1973. 1967-1970 (The Blue Album) includes the Fab Four’s “last” song, “Now And Then,” which bowed at No. 6 on the Australian chart last week. Further down the fresh list, the Beatles’ 1962-1966 (The Red Album) returns at No. 15.
