Singles

#1: Robin Thicke featuring T.I. & Pharrell ‘Blurred Lines’ – a second consecutive week at number one for this single. For the first time this year, the top 5 remains the same as the week prior.

#6: will.i.am featuring Justin Bieber ‘#thatpower’  – a new high point for will.i.am this week.

#8: Luke Kennedy ‘Time To Say Goodbye(debut) - Up until now, The Voice contestant Luke has reached the top 100 once - one month ago he hit No. 65 with ‘Un Giorno Per Noi / A Time For Us’.  This week he becomes the first of this year's contestants to reach the top 10.

#10: Rudimental featuring Ella Eyre ‘Waiting All Night’ – this UK band cracks the Australian top 10 for a second time following ‘Feel The Love’ which peaked at No. 3 last July.

#15: Emma Pask ‘Mas Que Nada’ (debut) – Emma has exited from this year's series of The Voice, but it hasn't harmed her chart performance as her version of the Sergio Mendes song becomes her first top 100 entry.

#17: Bruno Mars ‘Treasure’ – with an 11 point leap this week, Bruno looks set for yet another Australian hit.

#18: Emeli Sande ‘Next To Me’ – a seven place improvement pushes Emeli into the top 20 this week.

Albums

#1:  Michael Buble ‘To Be Loved’  – ‘To Be Loved’ sold more this week than it did in its debut week and it was the biggest selling number one of the year to that date! Although this is Michael's fourth album to last at least five weeks at No.1, it is only the second to do so in one unbroken run.  The other was ‘Christmas’, which achieved the feat in its first run at the top towards the end of 2011.   

#2: Ricky Martin ‘Greatest Hits’ – A two spot rise makes this Ricky's third top 2 album, following his debut ‘Vuelve’ (No. 2, June 1998) and ‘Ricky Martin’ (No. 1, May 1999).  

#3: Agnetha Faltskog ‘A’ (debut) - Although Agnetha has enjoyed significant sales via ABBA albums over the years (three million and counting with ‘Arrival’ and ‘Best Of Abba’ back in the 1970s and ‘Abba Gold’ more recently); this is her first solo Australian top 10 album.  Her previous best solo releases were ‘Wrap Your Arms Around Me’ in 1983 and ‘My Colouring Book’ in 2004, both of which reached the bottom of the top 50.  

#4: Original Soundtrack ‘The Great Gatsby’ (debut) - The fifth high profile movie from Baz Luhrmann earns him a fourth top 10 soundtrack.  It all began in 1992 when he hit No. 6 with ‘Strictly Ballroom’, followed by ‘Romeo & Juliet’ (9 weeks at No.1 in 1997) and then ‘Moulin Rouge’ (11 straight weeks at No.1 in 2001).

#7: Vampire Weekend ‘Modern Vampires’ (debut) – This is the second top 10 album for Vampire Weekend following ‘Contra’ which made its debut at No. 2 in early 2010.  

#14: Demi Lovato ‘Demi’ (debut) – Demi's three albums have all hit the top 40, with each subsequent album improving on the chart peak of its predecessor – ‘Here We Go Again’ hitting No. 40 in 2009, followed by ‘Unbroken’ at No. 20 in 2011.

#16: Andre Rieu ‘Mother & Child – Lullabies The Whole World Loves’  – a five place jump brings this album into the top 20 for the first time.

#28: Bon Jovi ‘Bon Jovi Greatest Hits’ – Bon Jovi tour mania sweeps the country and this album improves 12 places to hit the top 30 once again.  Their album ‘What About Now’ sits a place higher at No. 27.

Further top 40 album debuts:

#22: Ms Mr ‘Secondhand Rapture’

#32: Emma Pask ‘Some Other Spring’- Emma’s 2010 independent release charts for the first time!

#35: Hugh Laurie ‘Didn’t It Rain’ – well known as an actor, this is Hugh’s second chart album following ‘Let Them Talk’ which made it to No. 37 in May 2011.
