Mark Ronson & Miley Cyrus smashed all format barriers at Aussie radio last quarter with disco-country jam ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’ topping the 2019 Q1 TMN Hot 100 Airplay Chart.
Consistency was the name of Ronson’s game, pinballing in the Top 3 for the duration of the quarter as CHR, alternative and country radio all showed support.
The single started the new year with a bang, hitting the summit in early January after debuting on the Hot 100 in the last chart week of 2018.
From there, ‘Nothing Breaks’ spent five non-consecutive weeks at #1, fending off persistent claims from Ava Max’s ‘Sweet But Psycho’ and P!NK’s ‘A Million Dreams’.
While the last three months didn’t offer up a particularly strong display by Australian artists, it was a quarter to remember for KIAN.
From triple j Unearthed to commercial radio playlists, ‘Waiting’ landed at #10 on the Q1 chart ahead of established local acts Dean Lewis, Guy Sebastian and Troye Sivan who all fell in the Top 20.
Overall, 22 singles from Australian artists made the quarterly chart with 10 of those positioned in the Hot 40.
Ariana Grande and Calvin Harris shared the title for the most tracks on the Q1 Hot 100 with four each. Amazingly, both artists had an average position of #42.
