Lil Nas X clocks up six weeks at No. 1 on Australia’s singles chart with his triple-platinum hit “Old Town Road” (Columbia/Sony), while Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go (Interscope) returns to the summit of the national albums survey for a fourth non-consecutive week. 

It’s a static top three on the ARIA Singles Chart as Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber‘s “I Don’t Care” (Universal/Warner), and Eilish’s “Bad Guy" stay at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, while Lewis Capaldi’s U.K. chart-topper “Someone You Loved“ (Universal) climbs 5-4, a new peak in its 10th week on the tally.

Shawn Mendes “If I Can’t Have You” (Island/Universal) completes the top five, while Sheeran has the week’s highest debut with “Cross Me” (Atlantic/Warner), his collaboration with Chance the Rapper & PnB Rock. “Cross Me,” lifted from Sheeran’s forthcoming album, No. 6 Collaborations Project, is new at No. 6.   

The next highest entry comes from Sydney pop-rock stars 5 Seconds Of Summer with “Easier” (Interscope/EMI), new at No. 12. It’s the first single from 5SOS’s upcoming fourth studio album. 5SOS had the highest-selling song of the year in Australia in 2018 with “Youngblood.”

On the ARIA Albums Chart this week, there’s a No. 4 debut for the soundtrack to the live action remake of Disney’s Aladdin (Walt Disney Records/Universal), a feat that eclipses the No. 15 peak for the soundtrack to the original animated version of Aladdin, from 1993.

Another soundtrack enjoys a fast start this week: Rocketman (Virgin/EMI), the companion to the Elton John biopic of the same name. The album includes 22 tracks performed by Taron Egerton and his fellow cast members, and contains the new song with Elton John, “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again." Rocketman is new at No. 6. 

Thanks to the theatrical release of Rocketman last week, a handful of Elton records return to the chart. The hits set Diamonds (Universal) is up 22-8, a new peak, and his classic 1973 set Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (Universal) returns to the chart at No. 40.
