Busby Marou score #1 Debut
This is week six at No.1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for Justin Bieber’s Love Yourself. London-based producer Jonas Blue jumps two spots to No.2 with his tropical house re-working of Tracy Chapman’s 1988 hit Fast Car. Another re-working of the track, by Swedish producer Tobtok featuring vocals by River, sits at No.21 this week. A jump of three spots moves the Snakeships single All My Friends into the Top five for the first time to No.3. After the passing of the legendary David Bowie last week, three of his iconic tracks have re-entered the Top 50: Space Oddity (No.31), Heroes (No.36) and his collaboration with Queen, Under Pressure (No.42). A further five are present in the Top 100: Starman (No.54), Let’s Dance (No.63), Changes (No.80) and Life On Mars? (No.83).
No.26 MY SUNSHINE - Mashd N Kutcher. Making the highest debut in the singles Chart this week is Australian production/DJ duo Mashd N Kutcher with My Sunshine. This marks a new chart peak going forward for the duo with their previous peak coming from Do It Now (No.33 Feb. ’15). My Sunshine samples the platinum selling Len track Steal My Sunshine (No.3 Jan. ’00).
No.72 LAZARUS - David Bowie. The legend that is David Bowie continues his domination of this week’s charts posthumously. Lazarus marks the last single released by Bowie before his passing, as it falls from the star’s 25th and final album Blackstar (currently No.1). According to Bowie's producer Tony Visconti, the lyrics and video of Lazarus and other songs on the album were intended to be a self-epitaph, a commentary on Bowie's own impending death.
No.75 ROSES - The Chainsmokers Feat. Rozes. Making its chart debut almost six months after its release, Roses by The Chainsmokers is the American DJ Duo’s first appearance on the ARIA singles chart in just over eighteen months. The pair from New York charted previously with Kanye (No.59 Aug. ’14) and their Top 10 hit #SELFIE (No.3 Apr. ’14).
No.78 KEEP UP - Ksi Feat. JME. English YouTube personality turn rapper Ksi has made his debut on the ARIA singles chart with Keep Up. The single is a cut from the EP of the same name and features the vocal stylings of English grime MC JME.
No.80 CHANGES - David Bowie. Undoubtedly one of the most surprising debuts of the year so far, for the fact that the work of art known as Changes has never appeared in the ARIA singles chart until now. Originally released on the album Hunky Dory (re-entry at No.45) in December 1971 and as a single in January 1972, Changes quickly became one of Bowie's well-known songs. It also charted for the first time on the UK Singles Chart this week at No.49.
No.92 GOLD - Kiiara. Hardware clerk by day and budding young songwriter by night, American artist Kiiara has dropped her debut single Gold on the world. Produced by frequent SZA collaborator Felix Snow, the single is the first cut off an upcoming EP.
No.93 REAPER - Sia. Hit-making golden girl Sia, has made her way into the Top 100 singles chart with the latest drop off forthcoming studio album This is Acting. Teaming up with the self-proclaimed god of music, Kanye West, the unlikely duo delivers Reaper. A track originally meant for singer Rihanna but was later rejected. Sia charted earlier this year with Cheap Thrills (No.57 Jan. ’16).
The late, great David Bowie debuts at No.1 on the ARIA Albums Chart with his 25th and final solo studio album, Blackstar. Released on Bowie’s 69th birthday, the album’s sales spiked dramatically following his passing on 10th January. Bowie also holds two other positions in the Top 10 this week, both of them compilations: Nothing Has Changed (The Best Of David Bowie) (No.3) and Best Of Bowie (No.9). In total Bowie has seventeen albums charting in the Top 100 this week. RIP in David Bowie.
No.1 BLACKSTAR - David Bowie. This is Bowie’s first No.1 on the ARIA Charts. 1980’s Scary Monsters and 1983’s Let’s Dance were No.1 albums prior to the inception of the ARIA Charts in July 1983. There are thirteenBowie albums in this week’s Top 50: Nothing Has Changed (The Best Of David Bowie) (No.3), Best Of Bowie (No.9), The Best Of David Bowie 1969/1974 (No.14), The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (No.21), The Next Day (No.23), The Best Of David Bowie 1980/1987 (No.30), Aladdin Sane (No.35), Let's Dance (No.37), Diamond Dogs (No.41), Heroes (No.42), Hunky Dory (No.45) and The Best Of David Bowie 1974/1979 (No.49). It equals the ARIA Charts record for most albums in the Top 50 by a single artist, sharing the honor with Michael Jackson, who achieved the feat following his passing in July 2009. A further four albums appear in the lower half of the Top 100: Scary Monsters (No.52), Sound + Vision (No72), Low (No.83) and Station To Station (No.95). Bowie now holds the ARIA Charts record for most albums in the Top 100 by a single artist. Michael Jackson previously held the record with fourteen.
No.6 ADAM BRAND AND THE OUTLAWS - Adam Brand And The Outlaws. The first album release by Adam Brand featuring his new super group The Outlaws. The band’s line-up consists of Australian country musicians Drew McAlister, Travis Collins, Matt Cornell and Mike Carr. Brand last charted with My Side Of The Street (No.5 Aug. ’14).
No.14 THE BEST OF DAVID BOWIE 1969/1974 - David Bowie. The first of three half-decade collections to debut this week for the legendary David Bowie. 1969/1974 features some of the most iconic singles such as Space Oddity, Starman, Ziggy Stardust and more.
No.15 STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON - Soundtrack. – This is the soundtrack to the hit film Straight Outta Compton, which has just been released on DVD. The album features tracks by N.W.A. and solo tracks by Ice Cube, Eazy-E and Dr Dre. As well as Parliament and Funkadelic amongst others.
No.30 THE BEST OF DAVID BOWIE 1980/1987 - David Bowie. Adding to his chart breaking record, 1980/1987 was originally released as part of the Platinum Collection in 2005/06 and makes its chart debut almost a decade later. This collection features the timeless, groundbreaking tracks Let’s Dance, Ashes To Ashes and Under Pressure with Queen.
No.49 THE BEST OF DAVID BOWIE 1974/1979 - David Bowie. Continuing his posthumous domination on the Top 100 Albums chart, David Bowie enters again with his third decade collection, looking back on the years 1974/1979. Also released as part of the Platinum Collection, this release focuses on genre shaping tracks like Fame, Sound And Vision and Heroes with Brian Eno.
No.72 SOUND + VISION - David Bowie. Originally conceived in 1989 as a career retrospective that would serve as a "teaser" for the then-upcoming Rykodisc CD reissue campaign covering Bowie's output from 1969 to 1980, Sound + Vision quickly became one of the fastest selling boxsets, clearing over 200,000 units worldwide in just a few short months. In 1990, this was considered a phenomenal achievement. The set when on to win a Grammy Award that year and was praised worldwide by industry professionals for its contents and quality.
