Two Shades of Pink on This Week’s ARIA Charts
The latest ARIA Charts are awash with a certain colour, as P!nk debuts at No. 1 on the Album Chart and newcomer PinkPantheress edges closer to top spot on the Singles Chart.
“TRUSTFALL” is P!nk’s seventh #1 album in Australia and brings her tally of weeks at the summit to 44.
You can expect that figure to rise: P!nk records stay at No. 1 for some weeks.
“Greatest Hits…So Far!!!” (2010) leads the list with 13 weeks.
“The Truth About Love” (2012) followed with ten weeks (slipping in and out of No.1 four times) with “Funhouse” (2008) at nine, “Beautiful Trauma” (2017) at six.
“I’m Not Dead” (2006) and “Hurts 2B Human” (2019) also went to top spot.
The title track from “TRUSTFALL” went to No.19 from No. 34, her 44th Top 20 single in Australia (including collaborations). Thirty-seven of those songs reached the top 10.
Australia hasn’t just make P!nk a smash on the charts.
By 2018 she had become the second all-time highest grossing concert act in Australia & New Zealand, generating $228 million from a total of 2 million ticket sales, behind the Rolling Stones’ $429.8 million.
The Summer Carnival in 2024 through Live Nation has already started to add dates as demand surges.
British singer songwriter PinkPantheress impressed with her summer shows here through Secret Sounds.
But the 21-year old’s international chart success has come through being a Gen Z pinup, and the way she has used TikTok.
Her debut mixtape from late 2021 created over 1.1 million TikTok followers and 9 million+ likes.
The track “Pain” gathered 160 million streams.
She’s the only artist to have Spotify’s RADAR programme for emerging artists both in the U.S. and U.K.
She increased discoverability on the platform after being included on 200 playlists including “Today’s Top Hits” and “Hot Hits USA”.
She also issued a re-mix of her hit “Boy’s A Liar” featuring Bronx rapper Ice Spice. It saw a 500% increase in streams week on week.
As a result, 50.5 per cent of her 500 million streams come from the U.S. and UK 11 per cent from the U.K.
Australia is her fourth largest streaming market making up 3.5 per cent, according to Luminate research, edged out by Canada at 3.9 per cent.
