"Rushing Back" is a song by Australian electronic musician Flume, featuring Australian singer songwriter Vera Blue. It was released as a single on 27 September 2019, by Australian music label Future Classic. The track was first premiered on radio Triple J on 26 September 2019 after being performed live for the first time during Flume's Lollapalooza Festival set last in August. "Rushing Back" was a national addition across the Hit Regional Network, as well as ATB adds on Fox FM, Hit105 and Hit92.9 plus had plenty of Airplay on Triple J, the result was a formality early in the week. "Rushing Back" moves from #51 to #29, making a Jump of 22 places on The Hot 100, which makes "Rushing Back", This Week's Power Hit..

Flume makes a triumphant return to form in new track with friend and long time collaborator, Vera Blue.

‘Rushing Back’ feels like a natural evolution for the Sydney producer, taking the jagged, futuristic production we first heard from him back on Skin and pushing it into a new melodic earworm territory.

The world-class duo first teased the track during Flume’s highly acclaimed Lollapalooza set last month, where Vera Blue took to the stage along with the producer to perform it live.

This isn’t the first time Flume and Vera have worked together, previously linking up for his throwback Like A Version, along with Vince Staples, Kucka and Ngaiire.

Speaking to Ben and Liam, Flume said it was Vera's "vocal gymnastics" that really caught his attention - particularly on her 2017 breakout single.

"I heard her song 'Hold' and I was like, this is insane. Her voice, the melody... As soon as I heard that I was like, we have to find this person and work with her."

The "dream team" (according to the text line!) linked up in LA for this particular cut.

‘Rushing Back’ feat. Vera Blue comes after the release of Quits, a collaborative EP with rapper Reo Cragun, and his star-studded mixtape Hi, This Is Flume.

Catch Flume in all his glitchy glory when he tours around the country for Listen Out – starting this weekend!

"Lights Up" is a song by English singer and songwriter Harry Styles, released through Erskine and Columbia Records on 11 October 2019 as the first single from his upcoming second studio album. The music video was also released the same day on his own YouTube channel. It was written by Harry Styles, Thomas Hull & Tyler Johnson, and produced by Tyler Johnson & Kid Harpoon. "Lights Up" is This Week's Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #38.

Back in action! Harry Styles released his new song, “Lights Up,” at midnight on Friday, October 11.

The groovy, melodic track is the lead single from Styles’ as-yet-untitled sophomore solo album, which a source previously told Us Weekly is expected to be released in “early fall.”

“It’s all about having sex and feeling sad,” the former One Direction member said of the record in his September 2019 cover story for Rolling Stone.

Styles also revealed to the magazine that he “did a lot of mushrooms” with his band between recording sessions at Shangri-La studios in Malibu.

“This is where I was standing when we were doing mushrooms and I bit off the tip of my tongue,” he said. “So I was trying to sing with all this blood gushing out of my mouth. So many fond memories, this place.”

Some of the “Kiwi” singer’s famous friends were lucky enough to listen to his new tunes before their official release.

“It’s not like his last album,” Stevie Nicks teased to The Face in September. ?“It’s not like anything One Direction ever did. It’s pure Harry, as Harry would say. He’s made a very different record and it’s spectacular.”

Liam Gallagher, meanwhile, described the album as “a bit like that Bon Iver.”

Styles released his self-titled solo debut in May 2017, one year after Us broke the news that One Direction’s so-called extended hiatus was actually a permanent split. The album, which included the singles “Sign of the Times” and “Two Ghosts,” garnered rave reviews from fans and critics. Us named it the best album of 2017.

The other four original members of 1D have ventured off as soloists as well. Zayn Malik, who exited the boy band in 2015, has released two albums; Niall Horan is putting the finishing touches on his second disc; and Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson have dropped a string of hit songs as they continue to work on their debuts.

This Week Tones and I return to #1 with "Dance Monkey" after a two week break and giving Tones and I, two non-consecutive weeks at #1, Tones has been spent more time at #1 on the Aria singles Chart, than she has been able on the airplay charts, This Week dropping one place to #2 is Ed Sheeran featuring Khalid with "Beautiful People", which was able to spend two weeks at #1 and was the latest single from Ed Sheeran’s "No.6 Collaborations Project" album to slide into the #1 place on The Hot 100 Airplay Chart. The breezy duet finds Sheeran back at an L.A. party where he doesn’t fit in. Khalid is also equally unfazed by the glitterati. In addition to the previously-released singles “Cross Me” with Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock and the Justin Bieber-assisted hit “I Don’t Care,” the 15-track collection includes collaborations with Cardi B and Camila Cabello (“South of the Border”) and Bruno Mars and Chris Stapleton (“Blow”), plus Travis Scott, Young Thug, H.E.R., Ella Mai, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and Stormzy.

The Jonas Brothers move up one place to #3 with "Only Human", which has started to get the airplay it deserves after a slow start, the reggae beat works surprisingly well on this song for The Jonas Brothers and is one of those cross genre songs. Dropping one to #4 is Marshmello & Kane Brown with "One Right Thing", which alot of people have been slamming as a poor excuse for country music as there seem to been alot of new artists using country rap and the purists don't like this style of music as they feel it is not country music as they feel it should be listed as Hip Hop or Rap. The First of two new entries into the top ten comes from Dan + Shay featuring Justin Bieber with "10,000 Hours", which moves up ten places to #5, The song follows Dan + Shay’s string of three No. 1s on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart (“Tequila,” “Speechless” and “All to Myself”), and Bieber’s summer smash with Ed Sheeran, “I Don’t Care,” which reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in May.

Post Malone moves up three places to #6 with "Circles", the song as being "backed by sunny acoustic guitars, swirling percussion and infectious melodies", and that while it has a "funky feel, the meaning is a bit more somber, detailing a relationship gone cold". Holding On at #7 is Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber with their former #1 "I Don't Care", which radio still loves as it now reaches twenty three weeks on The Hot 100, Guy Sebastian continues his slow descent on of the top ten with his former #1 "Choir", which drops three places to #8, "The song was originally a ballad but Sebastian changed it into "an upbeat, poignant song about the choir of voices Liang has joined in death, and the choir of voices "keeping his light alive" on earth."

Now also dropping three places to #9 is former #1 from Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello with "Senorita", which spent five weeks at #1, The song has become one of the longest-running #1 on the global charts on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify. This Week's second new entry onto the top ten comes from Maroon 5 with "Memories", which moves up six places to #10, "This song is for anyone who has ever experienced loss. In other words, this song is for all of us." It is about the loss of the band's manager and Levine's friend, Jordan Feldstein who died in December 2017.
