She’s not there on her own, but Sia Furler is in the No.1 spot on the ARIA singles chart for the very first time as part of her collaboration with Flo Rida, ‘Wild Ones’. Not only does the single knock off Foster The People’s belated No.1 hit ‘Pumped Up Kicks’, but it also scores a gold accreditation for sales of more than 35,000 copies.
‘Pumped Up Kicks’ drops six places to No.7 this week, but some consolation is a fourth platinum award.
Timomatic is up two spots into the No.2 position, with David Guetta and Nicki Minaj’s ‘Turn Me On’ bulleting 11 positions and picking up a platinum accreditation.
Also picking up accreditations are Coldplay’s ‘Paradise’ (now three times platinum) and Snoop Dogg’s ‘Young, Wild & Free’ (now double platinum).
Simple Plan’s ‘Summer Paradise’ is into the top ten at No.6, also achieving gold, while Laurent Wery’s ‘Hey Hey Hey’ is in a big hurry, up 13 places to No.10.
LMFAO’s ‘Sexy And I Know It’ is out of the top ten, but has gone seven times platinum (490,000 copies) and Taio Cruz’ ‘Hangover’ hits double platinum.
Further down, Gotye & Kimbra’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ drops six places to No.22, but who cares – the track is now certified eight times platinum for sales of 560,000 copies.
Elsewhere, Ed Sheeran’s ‘The A Team’ is three times platinum, The Black Keys’ ‘Lonely Boy’ is up to No.25 and is now bathed in gold; so too Avicii’s ‘Levels’ and LMFAO’s ‘Sorry For Party Rocking’, which is up six spots to No.32.
Adele’s megahit ‘Rolling In The Deep’, though still five times platinum – c’mon Remote Control… Update the sales figures already… – has dropped to No41, but this week notches up a full year on the ARIA singles chart.
Skrillex’ ‘Bangarang’ moves up ten spots, Matt Corby’s up six and Professor Greene and Emeli Sande are into the top 50 at No.46, followed closely behind with Lana Del Rey’s ‘Born To Die’ at No.50.
Lana’s previous single ‘Video Games’ is also feeling the love this week, edging higher to No.52 (its highest point thus far), with Qwote’s single ‘Throw Your Hands Up’ up 29 places to No.53.
Jessie J’s ‘Laserlight’ also makes its move – up 13 places to No.57, there’s a 27 place jump for Jason Mraz’ new single ‘I Won’t Give Up’ and Chiddy Bang’s ‘Ray Charles’ bullets from No.90 to No.64.
The week’s highest debut comes all the way down in position No.70 from Avicii and his new single ‘Fade Into Darkness’.
Will.I.Am’s ‘T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)’ re-enters at No.80, San Cisco’s ‘Awkward’ is back in the mix at No.87 and there are further re-entries from Rihanna (‘Talk That Talk’ at No.91), The Wanted (‘Glad You Came’ at No.95) and Florence & The Machine (‘Shake It Out’ at No.98).
Adele notches up one full year on the charts with her album ’21’ today – and where else could she possibly be celebrating it, but in the No.1 position on the ARIA albums chart. ’21’ is ten times platinum in Australia (700,000 copies) and counting.
LMFAO have had their accreditations adjusted after the Christmas sales period – and haven’t they done well. ‘Sorry For Party Rocking’ the album, while remaining at No.2, has notched up four times platinum this week – up two times platinum on last week’s figure.
The One Direction frenzy doesn’t look like subsiding any time soon, with the band’s album ‘Up All Night’ reaching a new peak of No.4 on the ARIA albums chart, while The Black Keys’ ‘El Camino’ gets a gold accreditation and Skrillex’ ‘Bangarang’ EP moves up to No.11.
Gotye’s ‘Making Mirrors’ drops to No.14 but picks up a third platinum nod, while his ‘Something That I Used To Know’ co-star Kimbra sees her debut offering ‘Vows’ edge up to No.17 and pick up a platinum accreditation.
Beyonce’s ‘4’ is up to No.19, Christina Perri’s ‘Lovestrong’ is up eight spots to No.37 and goes gold and top 50 re-emergences come from Arctic Monkeys (‘Suck It And See’ at No.42), Kasabian (‘Velociraptor’ at No.45), The Wombats (‘This Modern Glitch’ at No.47), Florence & The Machine (‘Lungs’ at No.49) and Crowded House (‘The Very Very Best Of’ at No.50).
Outside the top 50, PJ Harvey’s Mercury Prize-winning LP ‘Let England Shake’ benefits from her tour, rocketing from No.97 to No.51, The Muppets’ soundtrack is the highest entry for the week at No.57, Michael Buble’s ‘Christmas’ continues to slide after the festive season – now down to No.79 – and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ self-titled set re-enters at No.80 in preparedness for their tour.
Celtic Thunder’s ‘Heritage’ debuts at No.92, Laura Marling’s ‘A Creature I Don’t Know’ re-enters at No.95 and Kanye West’s ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ and Slim Dusty’s ‘The Very Best Of’ also re-enter, at Nos.98 and 100 respectively.
