Nearly six years after closing the curtain on the first chapter of their career, Jonas Brothers returned in 2019 to take Australian radio by storm.
‘Sucker’ may have lost out a tightly-fought Most Added battle to Amy Shark in March, but the trio would have the last laugh, finishing at #1 on the 2019 Q2 TMN Hot 100 Airplay Chart.
The return single had already been on the Hot 100 for four weeks before the quarter began, giving ‘Sucker’ a solid base upon which to build its success.
While ‘Sucker’ only topped the airplay chart for two non-consecutive weeks during Q2 — less than P!NK’s ‘Walk Me Home’ and Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber’s ‘I Don’t Care’ — the consistency of the pop hit in the upper echelons of the chart was unmatched.
‘Sucker’ remained in the Top 5 for all but one week during the quarter in which it fell to #6, and its incredible run included nine weeks in either first or second spot.
Speaking of emphatic comebacks, Birds Of Tokyo were in high demand these past three months, and finished as the top-performing Australian lead artist in Q2.
‘Good Lord’ also finished the quarter atop the Contemporary Rock Chart, spending five weeks inside the Top 10 and only finishing outside the Top 25 once during the quarter.
The Perth band released the track in February, but it took some time to bed in at radio. The single would see its best results in Q2, gaining traction on adult radio and gleaning solid support from Triple M.
‘Good Lord’ was one of 26 singles involving Aussies on the quarterly chart, four more than in Q1. Dean Lewis contributed three of those singles, while rising star Tones And I added two.
Notably, The Chainsmokers’ single ‘Who Do You Love’ featuring Sydney-hailing 5 Seconds Of Summer came in at #4.
