Week three at #1 for Sheeran's Perfect

December 23, 2017

Moves for Mariah Carey, G-Eazy, Pnau and more!

It’s week three at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’. In addition to the original version on Sheeran’s ÷ album and the version featuring Beyoncé, released at the start of December, a new version featuring Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli was released this week.

Moving up five spots this week to #11, ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ hits its highest peak on the ARIA Singles Chart in 23 years. The track has re-entered the chart during every festive season since 2012 and had previously gone as high as #14. During its original chart run, it peaked at #2 for two weeks in December 1994.

In the week G-Eazy’s fourth album The Beautiful & Damned debuts at #38, the single ‘Him & I’ hits a new peak at #16. It takes over from ‘Me, Myself & I’ (#19 Feb. ’16) as G-Eazy’s highest career peak as a lead artist.

Pnau’s ‘Go Bang’ climbs a further four places to #17 to snare a new peak in its fifth week in the top 50.

Wham’s classic ‘Last Christmas’ has re-entered the chart this week at #37.

This week’s chart also includes new peaks for David Guetta & Afrojack’s ‘Dirty Sexy Money’ (#23), Calum Scott’s ‘You Are The Reason’ (#27), Clean Bandit’s ‘I Miss You’ (#28) and Sheppard’s ‘Coming Home’ (#33).

Debuts:
