Lady Gaga joins exclusive club with Top 10 Aussie airplay debut
Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Delta Goodrem, P!NK, Kings Of Leon, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry… What do these artists all have in common?
Gaga’s ‘Stupid Love’, her first new solo music since 2016 record Joanne, scrapes into rare company at #10 this week on the TMN Hot 100 powered by Radio Monitor.
It’s easily the highest debut of 2020, and the only new single to break the Top 40 this week.
A #1 debut continues to prove elusive for any act at commercial radio.
Taylor Swift has debuted at #2 twice, Harry Styles once landed at #3 with ‘Sign Of The Times’, as has Delta Goodrem with ‘Out Of The Blue. Goodrem has also landed at #4 with new music a whopping four times between 2003 and 2004.
If ‘Stupid Love’ can top the chart after two weeks, it will join 10 other singles from seven different artists to have got to #1 after just two charting weeks.
The clip for ‘Stupid Love’ was directed by ARIA-Award winning Aussie filmmaker Daniel Askill.
There’s little movement at the summit of the Hot 100 however, with The Weeknd holding the top spot with ‘Blinding Lights’ for a second consecutive week.
Movers include Jonas Brothers with ‘What A Man Gonna Do’ which rises to #3, a new peak. Meanwhile, Harry Styles breaks the Top 5 with ‘Adore You’ climbing two frames to #4 in its 13th charting week.
SZA & Justin Timberlake’s new soundtrack single ‘The Other Side’ jumps 32 places to #13 this week, while other debutants include Marco’s ‘Harder To Breathe’ and Sgt Slick’s ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme’ (#68).
