P!nk and Nate Ruess have been basking in the No.1 position with ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ for a couple of weeks now, but their time in the top spot is officially over, with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ascending to the top spot with their latest single ‘Can’t Hold Us’. That makes it three No.1s in a row for the affable duo, who’ve previously held the peak position with their tracks ‘Thrift Shop’ and ‘Same Love’.
That’s not to say that Passenger didn’t give the top spot a really good crack with his single ‘Let Her Go’, which bulleted 21 places from No.23 last week, edging up to No.2, displacing last week’s No.1 (P!nk & Nate) to No.3.

He might not have experienced the kind of success that he’s been wanting over on the ARIA singles chart with his new material thus far, but Justin Timberlake’s debut atop the ARIA albums chart this week will do very nicely indeed thankyou. The album is the sixth No.1 debut in six weeks and the ninth album at No.1 in nine weeks. ‘The 20/20 Experience’ also picks up a gold sales accreditation, meaning Sony sold at least 35,000 copies of it into the shops.
