Charts & Music Manager

ARIA Singles

This week’s ARIA Singles chart sees an Australian act break a record. Que Sera by Justice Crew has stayed at #1 for nine weeks in a row, breaking the record for the longest time at #1 for an Australian act. The previous record holder was of course Gotye with Somebody That I Used To Know, which stayed at #1 for eight weeks. On top of this, Que Sera has now achieved triple Platinum in sales. At nine weeks at #1, the track sits at third place for the longest running #1 this decade, sharing the position with Roar by Katy Perry and Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO.

At #2 this week is Sia’s Chandelier, which is actually the high point it peaked at in April, where it sat for two weeks. At #3 is Nico & Vinz’s Am I Wrong which is benefiting from a recent performance on The Voice last week. Although The Madden Brothers have stayed at #4 for another week, their sales haven’t slowed down with the single reaching Gold certification.

ARIA Albums

At #1 this week is a debut from Sydney band 5 Seconds Of Summer who released their self-titled album last week. The #1 debut also sold enough in its first week to receive Gold certification. At #2 is a new debut from Hillsong; No Other Name becomes their seventeenth album to hit the Top 10.

In regards to movement this week, Ed Sheeran’s first album + has started to climb the charts again, no doubt due to the success of his recent release x. It jumped from #29 to #28. Mystery producer Zhu’s EP NightDay also moved eight spots up to #25 from #33.

Hot 100

This week sees a shakeup in the top 10. At #1 is Nico & Vinz with Am I Wrong sitting at the top spot for its second week but after that we have a new #2 and #3. Milky Chance’s Stolen Dance takes #2 after climbing three spots from last week’s #5, pushing past the likes of Problem and Que Sera. Sam Smith’s Stay With Me takes #3, moving up one place from #4. At #6 is Sigma’s Nobody To Love, which has pushed further up from last weeks #10.  Sia’s Chandelier makes a re-entry in the top 10 after jumping from #17 to #10. The Madden Brothers have also continued their climb up the top 10 moving from #9 to #7. A busy week for the top 10.

Outside of the top 10 we see plenty of movement. Tiesto’s Wasted featuring Matthew Koma jumped from #54 to #30, DMA’s Delete jumped from #80 to #47, a total of 33 points but Sheppard just managed to beat the leap with Something’s Missing jumping from #79 to #45, a total of 34 places.
