The Q4 2018 Australian Singles Report is out today
Today marks the release of TMN’s final quarterly report of 2018.
With more unique #1s than any other quarter this year, Q4 continued to showcase Australian radio’s willingness to take a punt on fresh talent.
Aussie artists account for three Top 10 entries in Q4’s Hot 100 Airplay Chart – only one less than Q3. However, it’s again an international act that rules the roost, preserving the pattern that has played out over the course of 2018.
As its title suggests, Calvin Harris & Sam Smith‘s ‘Promises’ was an assured pick for radio success. Crowned Most Added upon release, the smooth and voguish dance number topped the Hot 100 for two-out-of-nine weeks of the quarter, bouncing around the Top 3 for the preceding two months.
That all but guaranteed the collab’s position as the most-played single on Australian radio in Q4 2018….
