Lukas Graham's 7 Years Hits Record-Breaking Eight Weeks At #1

April 9, 2016

Debuts for Broods, Drake and more!

It’s a big week for Danes Lukas Graham! Not only has their self-titled album topped the Albums Chart, ‘7 Years’ has picked up its eighth straight week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. It becomes the longest run at #1 on the Singles Chart by a Danish act, overtaking Aqua’s ‘Doctor Jones’ (#1 Dec. 97).

A jump of eleven spots for their cover of Simon & Garfunkel gives Disturbed their first top ten on the ARIA Singles Chart. The album Immortalized has moved up a further six spots this week to sit at #7.

In its second week in the top 50, Gnash’s ‘I Hate U, I Love U’ has jumped 21 spots. Olivia O'Brien originally wrote and recorded the track. The version currently charting is a reworking by the two artists.

Up six spots from last week, ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ gives The Chainsmokers a second top ten for 2016, following on from ‘Roses’ (#5 Feb. ’16).

It may have only moved up two spots but that move means ‘No’ becomes Meghan Trainor’s fifth top ten on the ARIA Singles Chart.

Little Mix have moved up eleven spots to #27 with ‘Secret Love Song’.

Debuts:

#35: Broods ‘Free’ – New Zealand duo Broods make their top 50 debut on the ARIA Singles Chart with ‘Free’. It’s the first single to come from their forthcoming second album, the follow-up to Evergreen (#5 Sept. ’14).

#43: Drake Feat. Wizkid & Kyla ‘One Dance’ – The second single to chart from Drake’s forthcoming album Views From The 6, following on from ‘Summer Sixteen’ (#25 Feb. ’16). It’s the Canadian rapper’s fifth top 50 appearance as a lead artist.

#45: Safia ‘Make Them Wheels Roll’ – After charting as featured artists on Peking Duk’s ‘Take Me Over’ (#6 Dec. ’14), fellow Canberrans Safia pick up their first top 50 entry in their own right with ‘Make Them Wheels Roll’.
