Sony Music secures another blockbuster week at Aussie radio

continues to flex its muscles on the official Australian radio airplay charts, with the label landing a second consecutive week with a Hot 40 market share above 40%.

Sony Music now holds a 43.73% share of the Hot 40, and 39.01% of the Hot 100.

The results give them a comfortable lead as the #1 label at Australian radio.

“On behalf of the team at Sony Music, we sincerely thank our valued partners for their support of our artists as they continue to express their artistry and creativity through this unique and challenging time,” Sony Music Entertainment chairman & CEO of Australia and New Zealand, Denis Handlin, tells TMN.

Recent chart highlights come from TikTok star-turned #1 charting act Jawsh 685, with the New Zealander’s Jason Derulo collaboration still in the Top 5 this after 13 charting weeks.

Also in the Top 10 of the Hot 100 are international releases from Kygo & Tina Turner with ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ (#5), Nea’s ‘Some Say’ (#6) and ‘Midnight Sky’ (#9) by Miley Cyrus.

Several singles by Aussies signed to the label recently clocked up double digits on the chart.

Amy Shark’s ‘Everybody Rise’ sits at #10 after 12 weeks, while Guy Sebastian’s ‘Standing With You clocks 11 weeks and is currently at #14.

‘This City’, the breakout single by LA-based Aussie Sam Fischer, is at #25 after 27 weeks.

“We have received exceptional support from all our radio partners to help drive this result, particularly with regard to the great music from our local artists,” Handlin added.

“Amy Shark, Guy Sebastian and Daryl Braithwaite have all achieved Top 40 airplay songs, as well as The Kid Laroi, Illy and Stace Cadet & KLP enjoying strong airplay.”

Handlin predicts the major’s success could well continue, signalling a string of new music.

“We have more exciting music for radio over the coming weeks with new releases from Ruel, Guy Sebastian, Amy Shark, Midnight Oil, Tash Sultana, Pete Murray, Delta Goodrem, Brad Cox, Darling Brando and Peking Duk, along with new signings to Sony Music, Busby Marou, Jerome Farah and Ashwarya.”
