NZ act Jawsh 685 claims the #1 song at Australian radio

Jawsh 685 is the king of Australian radio, with his team-up ‘Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)’ rising to the summit of the TMN Hot 100 powered by Radio Monitor.

The teenage producer, who hails from South Auckland, signed with Columbia to release a radio version of the track after it blew-up on TikTok earlier this year. Six weeks ago the song topped multiple global streaming charts.

The tune goes to #1 this week, with Topic and A7S track ‘Breaking Me’ slipping down one spot.

Sia’s new tune ‘Together’ continues to climb the ladder, rising to #3, making her the highest placed Aussie ahead of  Amy Shark’s ‘Everybody Rise’ steadfast at #9,

Meanwhile Joel Corry’s latest tune with MNEK climbs 11 frames to break into the Top 10, and Taylor Swift’s latest single ‘cardigan’ sits just outside the Top 20 at #21 (up from #25).

In terms of new music, Miley Cyrus came in with the highest debut (#26), with radio once again unable to resist her latest offering ‘Midnight Sky’.

Dua Lipa also has a new single ‘Levitating’ which lands at #37 this week.
