Singles Report: Miley Cyrus is born again in Malibu

DJ Khaled is the story of the week in the latest Australian Singles Report. I’m The One ft. Justin BieberQuavoChance The Rapper & Lil Wayne has made serious ground in the last seven days and is one of the hottest commodities at radio right now.

I’m The One sits at #3 on the Hot 100 – an upward move of 46 places since last week, making it the #1 Heatseeker. A key point to note is that I’m The One is now Khaled’s most successful track to ever hit Australian commercial radio. Its debut last week already placed it as his highest-ever charting single on the Hot 100.

The star-studded single tops every trending and predictive chart (except for the Pandora Trendsetters, because he’s already a mainstream success story) and is likely to stay at the top of the Shazam Future Hits chart for at least another couple of weeks.

“This week’s chart report really highlights just how well the single is doing,” said TMN’s Charts Editor Daniel Respall. According to Respall, I’m The One is likely to shoot to the top of the Hot 100 in the coming weeks, putting an end (at last) to Lorde and The Chainsmokers’ battle for #1.

Born-again enfant terrible Miley Cyrus is back in the fray, releasing new single Malibu from her forthcoming album. A return to the Tennessee roots that pre-date Hannah Montana, the loved-up track is way more restrained than any of the singles lifted from 2015’s Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, and will no doubt be a welcome surprise for commercial.

As predicted by TMN last week, there’s no denying the weight of solo releases from 1D members, with Niall Horan’s Slow Hands topping the additions list for the last week of radio. It left every other track in the dust, cementing its victory as the sole across-the-board addition to the entire Nova Network. (And with Harry Styles‘ album released last Friday and Liam Payne‘s thirsty-sounding, Quavo-featuring debut solo single hitting on May 19, the 1D charts takeover shows no sign of easing.)

Now officially a Latin-commercial crossover, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s Despacito (Remix) ft. Justin Bieber will become the first Hot 100 charting single for both artists after the track was picked up by the Hit Regional Networks and both KIIS stations last week.
