James Arthur makes it six weeks at #1

November 19, 2016

Debuts by Zara Larsson, The xx and more!

James Arthur makes it six straight weeks at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart with ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’.

As the popularity of the Mannequin Challenge grows, so too does the track soundtracking most of the videos, Rae Sremmurd’s ‘Black Beatles’. The track is up 27 spots from last week’s debut spot of #33 to sit at #6.

A jump of ten spots to #11 for ‘Set In Stone’ in its third week in the top 50 puts Guy Sebastian one spot away from picking up a thirteenth top ten on the ARIA Singles Chart.

After a week out of the top 50, John Legend’s ‘Love Me Now’ has re-entered at #25, overtaking its previous peak by one spot.

This week’s Singles Chart also includes moves for Illy’s ‘Catch 22’ (up two to #12), Clean Bandit’s ‘Rockabye’ (up 24 to #14) and Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall’s ‘Juju On That Beat (TZ Anthem)’ (up nine to #27)


#35: Zara Larsson ‘I Would Like’ – Swedish singer-songwriter Zara Larsson snares her second Singles Chart debut for 2016 with ‘I Would Like’. The new track comes two weeks after her previous single, ‘Ain’t My Fault’, peaked at #17.

#43: Jonas Blue Feat. Raye ‘By Your Side’ – Having hit #1 in February with ‘Fast Car’ and peaking at #6 in August with ‘Perfect Strangers’, British producer Jonas Blue returns to the top 50 with ‘By Your Side’. The track has already charted in the UK.

#45: Samantha Jade & Cyrus ‘Hurt Anymore’ – 2012 X Factor winner Samantha Jade and 2015 X Factor winner Cyrus team up for the duet ‘Hurt Anymore’. It’s Samantha Jade’s first Singles Chart appearance since ‘Always’ (#28 Mar. ’16) and Cyrus’ since ‘Keep Talking’ (#44 Feb. ’16).

#49: The xx ‘Hold On’ – Ahead of the release of their third album, I See You, in January, British trio The xx enter the Singles Chart with ‘Hold On’. It’s their second top 50 entry, following on from ‘Angels’ (#46 Jul. ’12).
