August 18, 2018

Moves for Panic! At The Disco, Jonas Blue, George Ezra and more!

Sydney singer-songwriter Dean Lewis claims his first #1 on the ARIA Charts with the single ‘Be Alright’. The track hits the top spot in its seventh week in the Top 50 and its sixth week in the Top Ten.

‘Be Alright’ is the second Australian #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart in 2018 after 5 Seconds Of Summer’s ‘Youngblood’.

Five weeks into its run in the Top 50, Benny Blanco’s ‘Eastside’ moves up one spot to claim a new peak at #4.

Jumping up seven spots, Panic! At The Disco’s ‘High Hopes’ hits #7. It becomes the American group’s first ever Top Ten on the ARIA Singles Chart. Their previous highest peak was with ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’ (#12 Aug. ’06).

A week on from cracking the Top Ten for the first time, ‘Rise’, Jonas Blue’s fourth Top Ten single moves up one spot to claim a new peak at #8.

In its third week in the chart, George Ezra moves up 16 spots to #11 with ‘Shotgun’. The single’s parent album, Staying At Tamara’s, has re-entered this week’s Albums Chart at #45.

This week’s chart also includes new peaks for Kygo & Imagine Dragons’ ‘Born To Be Yours’ (#18), The Rubens’ ‘Never Ever’ (#25), Zedd & Elley Duhe’s ‘Happy Now’ (#30) and Bebe Rexha’s ‘I’m A Mess’ (#42).
