More than five years after first appearing on the Australian airplay charts with ‘Problem’ ft. Iggy Azalea, has to thank for her first #1 radio hit.

Her first chart-topper comes on a refreshed version of Lizzo’s 2016 single ‘Good As Hell’, which rises two frames to the top of the TMN Hot 100 Airplay Chart powered by Radio Monitor, more than two and a half years after its initial release.

It may come as a shock that Grande has never cracked the top spot. She’s come painstakingly close with ‘Problem’, ‘Side To Side’ ft. Nicki Minaj, ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ and ‘thank u, next’ all making it to #2.

‘Good As Hell’ is also easily Lizzo’s best-performing track at Aussie radio. Her previous peaks came via ‘Truth Hurts’ (#31), and ‘Juice’ (#34).

Hype around the US singer-songwriter and instrumentalist is at an all-time high, with Lizzo set to touch down in January for FOMO Festival, as well as two newly announce solo headline shows.

There’s been a sizable shakeup to the Hot 100’s Top 10 this week, as Maroon 5’s ‘Memories’ rebounds into a previous peak position of #2.

Regard’s remix of Jay Sean’s ‘Ride It’ jumps to #3, and there are also new peaks for ‘Castles’ by British act Freya Ridings (#8) and Dua Lipa’s latest single ‘Don’t Stop Now’ (#5) in it’s second charting week.

Tones And I achieves a new chart height for ‘Never Seen The Rain’ (#9), which also tops the Australian Chart. She now holds the top two positions on the Aussie chart with ‘Dance Monkey’ at #2.

The highest Hot 100 debut goes to Morgan Evans (#54), whose new country-pop track ‘Diamonds’ was also this week’s Most Added To Radio. There are also debuts for new HAIM single ‘Now I’m In It’ (#68), Dune Rats track ‘Crazy’ (#74) and Bring Me The Horizon’s ‘Ludens’ (#76).
