In a week defined by unexpected collabs, Marshmello, P!nk & Sting come together to produce a fresh hit, while The Kid Laroi teams up with a K-pop idol and UK rapper. ‘Dreaming’ by Marshmello, P!nk & Sting comes in at No. 20 with 330 spins across 21 stations.

The Kid Laroi lands at No. 32 alongside Jung Kook & Central Cee on ‘Too Much’. CADA was the driving force with 35 spins, with SCA’s 101.9 The Fox and SAFM posting 15 spins each. The Aussie hitmaker was last seen on the chart in September with Justin Beiber collab ‘Stay’ jumping back into the Top 40. ‘Stay’ has accumulated nearly 43,000 spins on Australian radio over the course of 117 weeks on air.
Taylor Swift may have fallen off the chart’s summit, but her single ‘Karma’ was one of the biggest movers of the week with a gain of 24.6%. Ten stations upped their spins count this week, while an additional five stations reinstated the song to the playlist. ‘Karma’ spent four weeks at No. 2 in July/August, blocked off the top spot by Luke Combs’ ‘Fast Car’ and Dua Lipa’s ‘Dance The Night’.
