Hat trick for Ed Sheeran
Busby Marou score #1 Debut
Justin Bieber holds for a seventh straight week at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart with his track “Love Yourself”, becoming the longest running No.1 track for almost a year-and-a-half.
The last time an act stayed at the top this long was between 12-May and 7-July in 2014 when “Que Sera” for Justice Crew spent nine consecutive weeks at the top, with no song doing it since then. The other thing that Justin Bieber and Justice Crew have in common is that they have both racked up eleven weeks at the top from their two No.1 singles for this decade, placing them equal eighth on the list of ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: 2010’s; Singles’.
And Justin might not hold on for another week, as “Fast Car” by Jonas Blue and Dakota (now Platinum) which holds at No.2 for a second week, is the new No.1 downloaded track in the country, but doesn’t take over the top spot due to it being #4 on the streaming chart. Also on hold at No.3 for another week are Snakehips with Tinashe and Chance the Rapper for the track “All My Friends”.
Zara Larsson this week lands her second Top 5 single in Australia as her new song “Lush Life” leaps up four places to a new peak of No.4 and newcomer Elle King is up two spots to a new chart height of No.5 with “Ex’s & Oh’s”, with Australia making it the first country in the world to land within the Top 5. Former one and two strugglers “Hello” for Adele and “Sorry” by Justin Bieber are at No.6 and No.7 respectively, DJ Snake and Bipolar Sunshine are back up one spot to No.8 with “Middle” and the new UK No.1 single this week (as of Jan 22) “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes drops four places to No.9 this week. Debuting at No.10 is the new single by Flume featuring vocals by Kai entitled “Never Be Like You”, which becomes his first Top 10 single in Australia and is the second single from his forthcoming second album entitled ‘Skin’ (date unknown as yet), the first entry being the June 2015 track “Some Minds” (HP-27) featuring Andrew Wyatt.
Charlie Puth could be headed for his third Top 10 single next week as “One Call Away” jumps up twelve places to a new peak of No.11 and also jumping into the Top 20 is last weeks highest new entry “My Sunshine” by Mashd N’ Kutcher, which is up eight to No.18 and “Fast Car” by Tobtok and River is up a couple of spots to a new peak of No.19, whilst “Youth” for Troye Sivan climbs a single place to a new peak of No.17 and the track is newly certified Gold in sales. After dropping fourteen places last week to No.34, this week the track “In the Night” by The Weeknd is back up twelve spots to No.22 and jumping eleven to a new peak of No.30 is Selena Gomez and her latest track “Hands to Myself”, which becomes her third highest charting single here in the process. After returning to the Top 50 last week, local artist L D R U with Paige IV jumps up thirteen places to a No.32 with “Keeping Score” and former #33 peaking track “The Girl is Mine” by 99 Souls is back up four to No.34.
After four weeks at No.10 UK trio WSTRN fall five places to No.15 with “IN2” whilst dropping nine to No.23 is Marcus Marr and Chet Faker with “The Trouble with us”. The Hilltop Hoods drop eight to No.27 with “Higher” and continuing the up-and-down track record for Rachel Platten’s “Stand by You”, it is back down fifteen spots to No.31 this week. “Out of the Woods” by Taylor Swift drops nine to No.36 and “The Hills” by The Weeknd descends eight places to No.40. Two of David Bowie’s re-entries from last week retain their Top 50 status this week, with “Space Oddity” down thirteen to No.44 and “Heroes” dropping twelve to No.48 whilst the final drop within the fifty is Vance Joy with “Fire & the Flood” which is down fourteen places to No.49.
The next new act to the Top 50 is Kiiara with her track “Gold” which flies into the fifty to land at No.33, whilst two further entries that climb into the Top 50 are “Roses” by The Chainsmokers featuring Rozes which is new at No.37 and becomes the duos second Top 50 entry and is the acts first entry since their 2014 hits “#Selfie” (HP-3, April), whilst the teaming of ZHU, Skrillex and THEY on the track “Working for it” is new within the fifty at No.45 this week.
Returning to the top of the ARIA Albums Chart this week is Adele with “25” for its eighth week at the chart summit.
“25” and her former No.1 album “21” (TW-15) have now amassed forty weeks at No.1 for Adele, placing her outright fifth on the list of ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums’, as she previously tied with ABBA for equal fifth when they both had 39 weeks, but Adele pulls ahead now with her return to the top, and her next target is the 46 weeks that Neil Diamond notched up with his five No.1 albums here. With the new RuFuS album out this week she might not be able to retain the top spot next week though, but we will wait and see.
Adele might be the No.1 album overall this week, but “25” is only the No.1 digital album, not physical; with that win going to last weeks No.1 debut “Blackstar” by David Bowie which this week drops a place to No.2, but does achieve Gold in sales this week and is the first of three Bowie albums in the Top 10 this week, with “Nothing Has Changed: The Best of” down two to No.5 and his 1990’s “Best of” rising three places to score a new peak of No.6 this week. David also sets a new record (again) this week by having eighteen albums within the Top 100 (beating his 16 from last week).
The fifth studio album for Panic! At the Disco is entitled “Death of a Bachelor” and debuts at No.3 this week to become the bands third Top 10 album and second highest charting set, as their second album “Pretty.Odd” debuted and peaked at No.1 (7-April, 2008) and they also landed a No.6 debut with their third set “”Vices & Virtues” (28-March, 2011). Justin Bieber holds onto the No.4 position this week with his “Purpose” album and after the two Bowie compilations we have Elvis Presley with “If I Can Dream” which is down two places to No.7 whilst Ed Sheeran is also on hold at No.8 with “x” and down two to No.9 is Taylor Swift with her “1989” set, whilst the third and final hold within the Top 10 this week is the “Molly” TV Soundtrack at No.10 again this week.
The Soundtrack for the newly released DVD and BR film “Straight Outta Compton” is up three places to a new peak of No.12, and with the passing this week of Eagles founder, singer and guitarist Glenn Frey, The Eagles “Complete Greatest Hits” returns to the chart at a new peak of No.14, having previously charted as high as No.17 back in December of 2004 and most recently No.20 in August 2015. “21” for Adele is back up five to No.15 and the last Bowie studio album “The Last Day” is up to No.22 this week and newly certified Gold in sales. “Like a Version Vol.11” is back up four to No.23 and recent tourist Halsey and her “Badlands” set is back up to No.28, whilst Adele’s first album “19” jumps back up twenty to land at No.34. The most recent Eagles compilation “Selected Works 1972-1999” is back within the charts at No.36 and “To Pimp a Butterfly” by Kendrick Lamar is back up ten to No.37. The debut album for N.W.A. “Straight Outta Compton” returns at No.39 and the July 1994 released “The Very Best of” (HP-2x4, peaked August 1994) for The Eagles also returns to the Top 50 at No.43 whilst the new singles chart entry for Twenty One Pilots helps their “Blurryface” album to return within the fifty at No.49 this week.
The only album leaving the Top 10 this week is the second new entry from last week, “Adam Harvey & The Outlaws” (HP-6) which is down twelve to No.18, with the self-titled Matt & Jess album is down five to No.21. Leon Bridges’ “Coming Home” set drops twelve to No.31 and the David Bowie album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” descends down the chart twenty-three spots to No.44 whilst “Wildfire” by Rachel Platten is down seven to No.45.
2014 X-Factor third placed act Brothers3 this week debut at No.11 with their seventh album, but first with a major label entitled “Brothers Never Part”, with the trio of brothers having already placed eleven singles in the Top 100 during their run on the show. On the reverse, we also see English three piece act Daughter with their second album “Not to Disappear” coming in at No.26, beating the No.50 peak that the bands first album “If You Leave” achieved back in late March of 2013. The final new entry to the Top 50 comes in at No.36, “Let it Echo” for Jesus Culture, one of the musical arms of the church ‘Bethel’, and this is the acts first chart entry here and the live album is their eleventh album, fourth that is recorded live too.
