The ‘Harlem Shake’ shook the No.1 position last week, but it seems to have been merely a passing fad, relinquishing the top spot after just one week. There’s another new No.1 over on the albums chart too.
Brooklyn-based DJ Baauer scored a No.1 hit last week with his internet sensation ‘Harlem Shake’, becoming the 1000th Australian No.1 single in the process, but it’s already all over for him this week, with P!nk and Nate Ruess’ ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ re-taking the No.1 crown snatched from them last week.
And with One Direction’s ‘One Way Or Another’ heading down from No.3 to No.10, James Arthur, Rihanna and Labrinth each move up a spot – Labrinth and Emeli Sandé and their now-triple platinum ‘Beneath Your Beautifiul’ now in the top five for the first time.
More top ten movement comes courtesy of Birds Of Tokyo (‘Lanterns’ up from No.10 to No.6), Pitbull & Christina Aguilera’s ‘Feel This Moment’ (No.12 to No.7 and already gold) and Avicii vs Nicky Romero’s ‘I Could Be The One’ (No.14 to No.8 and also now certified gold).
Nelly’s new single ‘Hey Porsche’ looks to be speeding towards the summit – racing from No.37 to No.16 in just its second week of chart action. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ ‘Can’t Hold Us’ a similar story – now top 20 after just three weeks (No.20).
Could it be a barrage of screaming goats helping Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ rebound slightly on this week’s chart? It’s up six spots to No.21, while Rita Ora’s ‘Radioactive’ hits a new high of No.23 (up ten places).
The week’s highest debut comes courtesy of fresh new act Mkto, who premiere at No.28 with their single ‘Thank You’, just four places above Ed Sheeran’s new single ‘Small Bump’, which debuts at No.32. Ed’s single ‘Give Me Love’ improves again this week – up eight spots to No.39.
Big move from Adele and her single ‘Skyfall’ on the back of her Oscars win. The theme song from the James Bond movie improves from No.77 to No.40 this week.
