Chainsmokers snare 2016's longest #1 reign

October 8, 2016

Debuts by Niall Horan, Jessica Mauboy and more!

The Chainsmokers’ ‘Closer’ notches up its ninth week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. It breaks the record for most weeks at #1 in 2016, previously held by Lukas Graham’s ‘7 Years’ (#1 Feb. ’16). The American duo have picked up a new entry on this week’s Chart with ‘All We Know’ (see below).

A jump of five spots for ‘Starboy’ in its second week in the chart gives The Weeknd a third top five single, following on from ‘The Hills’ (#3 Oct. ’15) and ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ (#2 Jul. ’15).

Up two spots from last week, ‘My Way’ becomes Calvin Harris’ twelfth top ten as lead artist on the ARIA Singles Chart.

Following his performance at the NRL Grand Final, Keith Urban has re-entered the chart at #31 with ‘The Fighter’. The track has been nominated for Song Of The Year at this year’s ARIA Awards.


#5: Niall Horan ‘This Town’ – The debut solo single from One Direction member Niall Horan. It’s the first solo release by any member of the quartet since the beginning of One Direction’s hiatus.

#11: The Chainsmokers Feat. Phoebe Ryan ‘All We Know’ – With ‘Closer’ this week breaking the record for most weeks at #1 on the Singles Chart in 2016, The Chainsmokers pick up a new entry with ‘All We Know’. Featuring vocals from American singer-songwriter Phoebe Ryan, it’s the American duo’s fifth top 50 appearance.

#37: Jessica Mauboy ‘Wake Me Up’ – Jessica Mauboy picks up her 22nd top 50 entry as lead artist and first for 2016 with ‘Wake Me Up’. It’s a cover of Avicii’s hit from 2013 (#1 Jul. ’13), which featured vocals by Aloe Blacc. Mauboy’s version comes from the soundtrack to TV series The Secret Daughter, in which she stars.

#38: Bliss N Eso Feat. Thief ‘Dopamine’ – Sydney hip hop trio Bliss N Eso return with their first single in two years. ‘Dopamine’ is the first taste of the group’s sixth album, set for release in 2017. They last charted with ‘My Life’ (#26 Feb. ’14), which was their highest peak to date.
