Yes P!nk and Nate Ruess keep the No.1 mantle this week, staving off a late week challenge from the new Macklemore single with their tune ‘Just Give Me A Reason’.
Could Macklemore and Ryan Lewis hit the top spot for a third straight time with the new tune ‘Can’t Hold Us’. It seems we certainly can’t, given the track has improved five places to No.2 this week, while James Arthur’s ‘Impossible’ drops back to No.3, but picks up a double platinum accreditation.
Rihanna and Avicii play swapsies, while a newly platinum Pitbull single remains at No.6.
New entries into the top ten this week come courtesy of Nelly’s ‘Hey Porsche’ (No.13 to No.9) and MKTO’s ‘Thank You’ (No.20 to No.10).
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ ‘Same Love’ is down from No.9 to No.15, but Calvin Harris is up to No.16 with a bullet for his new single ‘I Need Your Love’ (up from No.44 last week). Ditto the Stafford Brothers track ‘Hello’ (featuring Lil Wayne & Christina Milian), which rockets from No.68 to No.18.
Passenger’s ‘Let Her Go’ is also on the move upwards – improving from No.56 to No.23, while the week’s highest debut comes courtesy of Justin Timberlake’s new single ‘Mirrors’, which drops at No.26.
Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ hits five times platinum at No.29, Havana Brown’s ‘Big Banana’ (pun intended) rises to No.32 and Little Mix is back in top 50 action with their new single ‘Change Your Life’ (premiering at No.43).
Sony stablemate and fellow former ‘X Factor’ UK star Olly Murs improves with his single ‘Army Of Two’ – up from No.73 on debut to No.44 – with Bliss N Eso’s newbie ‘House Of Dreams’ entering at No.47.
Not such good news for Jessica Mauboy, however, with her cover of ‘Something’s Got A Hold On Me’ slumping from its No.26 debut last week to No.50 this week.
Demi Lovato and Swift K.I.D. with Guy Sebastian also slip out of the top 50 (Nos.51 and 52 respectively), but good news for one of our fave new UK outfits Bastille, getting some Aussie chart action via their track ‘Pompeii’ debuting at No.63.
A fall for Adele’s ‘Skyfall’ (down from No.53 to No.70), a re-entry for Bon Jovi’s ‘Because We Can’ (No.80), the blues for Bublé, with ‘It’s A Beautiful Day’ dropping from No.64 to No.81 and re-entries for Avicii, Kid Cudi, Ed Sheeran and Azealia Banks.
New at No.100 is At Sea’s ‘Unconscious D’ and Reece Mastin’s ‘Timeless’ runs out of time, falling out of the top 100 after one week in at No.85.
Three top ten debuts this week, but it’s Bon Jovi who knocks Birds Of Tokyo’s ‘March Fires’ out of the top spot after one week – though according to EMI a very productive week, with BOT’s album reportedly scoring the highest No.1 album sales thus far in 2013.
Bon Jovi’s ‘What About Now’ claims the No.1 mantle over David Bowie’s new LP ‘The Next Day’, which impressively debuts at No.2.
There’s another top ten debut at No.6 – and it’s courtesy of the ‘Sound City : Reel To Reel’ soundtrack – while Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Collection : 1973-2012’ debuts at No.15.
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ album ‘Push The Sky Away’ slides from No.6 to No.16, Bon Jovi’s ‘Greatest Hits’ improves from No.62 to No.20 and Dido’s ‘Girl Who Got Away’ is down 13 places on last week’s No.12 debut.
New at No.29 is Jimi Hendrix’ ‘People, Hell & Angels’. New at No.32 is Gold Fields’ ‘Black Sun’.
The ‘Les Miserables’ soundtrack dips from No.21 to No.37, Sticky Fingers’ album ‘Caress Your Soul’ debuts at No.39 and The Drones’ ‘I See Seaweed’ drops from No.18 to No.40 in its second week.
Olly Murs’ album ‘Right Place Right Time’ re-enters at No.47 (the deluxe edition will soon get a physical release), but Imagine Dragons’ LP ‘Night Visions’ is down from No.28 to No.50.
Outside the fifty, improvements for Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Wrecking Ball’ (No.82 to No.53) and Flo Rida’s ‘WIld Ones’ (No.80 to No.56), but headed the other way is Atoms For Peace’s ‘Amok’, which falls from No.20 to No.55 in week three.
Neil Young’s best-of is back in chart action at No.64, How To Destroy Angels’ album ‘Welcome To Oblivion’ enters at No.67 and The Temper Trap’s album repack suffers a second week slide – down from No.48 to No.74.
Kiss’ ‘Monster’ re-rears its head at No.80, The Prodigy’s ‘The Fat Of The Land’ is back to No.85, Flux Pavilion’s ‘Blow The Roof’ enters at No.88 and Hurts’ ‘Exile’ is in at No.90 (their first album chart down under).
Stereophonics’ new offering ‘Graffiti On The Train’ has been erased after debuting at No.42 last week. It’s now wiped from the top 100.
