December 3, 2016

Debuts by Flume, Charli XCX and more!

British trio Clean Bandit scores their first #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart with ‘Rockabye’. After jumping twelve spots to #2 last week, the single has reached the top in its fourth week in the top 50.

After a week at #4, the title track to The Weeknd’s Starboy (this week’s #1 album) has returned to #2 for a seventh week. The current record-holder for most weeks at #2 on the ARIA Singles Chart is Maroon 5’s ‘Moves Like Jagger’, which spent ten straight weeks there between August and October in 2011. The Weeknd’s ‘I Feel It Coming’ has jumped 17 spots this week to snare a new peak at #24.

This week’s chart also includes new peaks for Peking Duk’s ‘Stranger’ (#11), Drake’s ‘Fake Love’ (#16), Alessia Cara’s ‘Scars To Your Beautiful’ (#23), Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall’s ‘Juju On That Beat (TZ Anthem)’ (#26), Zara Larsson’s ‘I Would Like’ (#27), Frenship’s ‘Capsize’ (#30), Jonas Blue’s ‘By Your Side’ (#36) and Rag'N'Bone Man’s ‘Human’ (#39).


#29: Flume ‘Skin Companion EP I’ – A week on from winning eight ARIA Awards, Sydney electronic artist Flume scores a new entry on the ARIA Singles Chart with ‘Skin Companion EP I’. The four-track EP features tracks written around the same time as Skin (#1 Jun. ’16). It’s Flume’s fourth entry in the top 50 this year, following on from ‘Never Be Like You’ (#1 Feb. ’16), ‘Smoke & Retribution’ (#23 Feb. ’16) and ‘Say It’ (#5 Dec. ’16).

#33: The Weeknd ‘Party Monster’ – The third track from this week’s #1 album to hit the top 50. It follows on from ‘Starboy’ (#2 Oct. ’16) and ‘I Feel It Coming’ (#24 Nov. ’16). One of the track’s co-writers is Lana Del Rey, who also features on the album track ‘Stargirl Interlude’.

#37: Charli XCX Feat. Lil Yachty ‘After The Afterparty’ – Brit Charli XCX picks up her first appearance on the Singles Chart since early 2015 with ‘After The Afterparty’. The track is the first to come from her forthcoming third studio album. Charli XCX last charted with ‘Break The Rules’ (#10 Jan. ’15).

#46: Milky Chance ‘Cocoon’ – German act Milky Chance returns to the Singles Chart for the first time in over two years with ‘Cocoon’. The first single from the band’s forthcoming second album gives them a second Singles Chart appearance, following on from ‘Stolen Dance’ (#2 May ’14).
