Chart Wrap: Australians dominate all charts

Charts & Music Manager

Hot 100

This week, Que Sera takes the #1 spot again following Geronimo’s fall to #5. After two weeks of back and forth positioning between #1 and #2, Justice Crew have solidified their spot at the top this week with Sheppard’s Geronimo falling to#5, the lowest it’s been in eight weeks. Although it’s been happening on the other charts for weeks now, it looks like Geronimo is finally on the decline on the airplay charts after an incredibly strong run at #1 for six weeks interrupted. Unlike Geronimo, Que Sera is still performing well on all other chart, currently sitting at #1 on the ARIA Singles chart.

Elsewhere in the top 10 we see Sam Smith break into the top 3 with Stay With Me landing at #3 from last week’s #6.  Nico & Vinz’s track Am I Wrong? broke in at #6 from last weeks #11 and Mr Probz’s Waves just managed to make the top 10 after jumping from #13 to #10.

This week we see plenty of movement in the Top 50. Kim Cesarion’s I Love This Life moved 29 places from #68 to #39. Burn The Bright Lights by The Collective jumped 28 spots form #69 to #41 and The Madden Brothers’ We Are Done moved up 24 places from #53 to #29. The most impressive movement came from Bonnie Anderson; her single Blackout was the most moved track this week with a total of 32 places, from #54 to #22.

This week also sees a few reasonably high debuts from Rufus and Sia. Rufus’ Sundream entered the chart at #63 this week, meanwhile Sia’s new Eye Of The Needle entered at #65. Will.I.Am & Cody Wise’s single It’s My Birthday also debuted this week, landing at #76.

ARIA Singles

The double Platinum #1 Que Sera sits at the top of ARIA Singles chart for the sixth week in a row now. With all other competition losing momentum in the top 5, it is definitely a possibility that this track will continue to sit at #1 for weeks to come. Nico & Vinz’s Am I Wrong remains at #2 this week while Waves by Mr Probz moved up one position to #3. Sam Smith’s Stay With Me broke into the top 5 after moving up three places from #8. It becomes his first single as the lead artist to land in the top 5 of the ARIA chart.

There has been plenty of high debuts this week. Sia’s Eye Of The Needle entered at #36, Lana Del Rey’s Brooklyn Baby came in at #35 and The Madden Brothers’ We Are Done entered in at #28. Somebody To You by The Vamps ft. Demi Lovato debuted at #23. The most notable debut this week is Australian hip hop artist 360 and his single Price Of Fame featuring Gossling, which debuted at #19.

ARIA Albums

This week’s ARIA Albums chart is filled to the brim with incredibly high debuts. The entire top three are all new entries. First up at #1 is The Amity Affliction with their fourth studio album titled Let The Ocean Take Me. This is the Gympie metalcore act’s second #1 debut in a row, the first being 2012’s Chasing Ghosts. The two singles from the album have already enjoyed success in the ARIA Singles chart with Pittsburgh peaking at #28 and Don’t Lean On Me peaking at #24.

This weeks #2 and debut is Passenger’s Whispers. It’s his second album to hit #2 on the ARIA Albums chart, the first being his breakthrough album All The Little Lights. The single Hearts On Fire off the latest album has peaked at #26 on the ARIA Singles chart and #34 on the TMN Hot 100. At #3 is Jack White’s Lazaretto. It’s his second appearance in the ARIA Album top 3 as a solo artist, his first being his 2012 release Blunderbuss.

Outside of the top 3, Miranda Lambert’s new album Platinum debuts at #8. Although it’s her first appearance in the ARIA top 50, its shared success in overseas charts with the album hitting #1 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Billboard Country chart. Stay Gold by First Aid Kit debuts at #9 this week. It’s their first release to appear on the ARIA top 10 and their second to appear in the top 50. The first was their previous release The Lion’s Roar, which peaked at #36 in 2012.
