Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee hit #1

May 20, 2017

Debuts for Miley Cyrus, Calvin Harris and more!

Climbing one spot from last week, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s ‘Despacito’ has hit #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. It achieves the feat in its fourth week in the top 50 and becomes the first #1 performed predominantly in a language other than English since Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ (#1 Oct. ’12), plus the first #1 performed predominately in Spanish since Las Ketchup’s ‘The Ketchup Song (Asereje)’ (#1 Oct. ’02).

In the week that Harry Styles’ self-titled album debuts at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, his debut single moves back up five spots on the chart to #4. Another track from Harry Styles, ‘Sweet Creature’, debuts this week at #42 (see below).

‘Waves’, the debut single from Sydney singer-songwriter Dean Lewis picks up a new peak at #12 in its seventh week in the top 50. The move up three spots for ‘Waves’ comes on the back of the release of Lewis’ debut EP, Same Kind Of Different, which has debuted on this week’s Albums Chart at #27.

Also on this week’s chart, there are new peaks for Future’s ‘Mask Off’ (#19), Cheat Codes’ ‘No Promises’ (#27), Charlie Puth’s ‘Attention’ (#30) and Post Malone’s ‘Congratulations’ (#37).

Debuts:

#3: Miley Cyrus ‘Malibu’ – More than three years after her last single, Miley Cyrus returns to the ARIA Charts with ‘Malibu’. The single comes from Cyrus’ forthcoming sixth studio album and is her seventh top ten in Australia. Cyrus last charted with ‘Adore You’ (#25 Feb. ’14).

#40: Calvin Harris Feat. Future & Khalid ‘Rollin’ – Calvin Harris claims his third Singles Chart entry for 2017 with ‘Rollin’. Like ‘Slide’ (#11 Apr. ’17) and ‘Heatstroke’ (#23 Apr. ’17),  the new track comes from Harris’ forthcoming fifth album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. It features appearances by rapper Future and R&B singer-songwriter Khalid.

#42: Harry Styles ‘Sweet Creature’ – The second solo track to chart in the top 50 for former One Direction member Harry Style. Like ‘Sign Of The Times’ (#1 Apr. ’17), ‘Sweet Creature’ comes from Styles’ self-titled debut album, which has debuted at #1 this week.
