After knocking Robin Thicke off the top spot last week, Swedish superstar DJ Avicii makes it two weeks on the trot with his smash new single ‘Wake Me Up’. In fact, our No.1 single is selling so well, that after notching up a gold sales accreditation last week, ‘Wake Me Up’ hits platinum this week.
Another track receiving an accreditation this week is the OneRepublic track ‘Counting Stars’, which improves to No.2 and picks up a gold star (35,000 copies).
Miley’s ‘We Can’t Stop’ edges to No.4 and with her tour now in full swing (and her Melbourne concerts this week being filmed for an upcoming DVD release), P!nk’s ‘True Love’ surges into the top ten (No.13 to No.5) and also goes gold.
More accreditations further down the list; Timomatic’s ‘Parachute’, Olly Murs’ ‘Dear Darlin’ and Jessie J’s ‘Wild’ all hitting the platinum mark this week, but Sammy Jade’s single ‘Firestarter’ drops from a No.9 debut to No.12 (her new video in our previous story).
Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ goes four times platinum (No.13), Lorde’s ‘The Love Club EP’ is now into the top 20 (No.26 to No.14) as is Vance Joy’s ‘Riptide’ (No.24 to No.17).
We’re big fans of the track – and it seems like the rest of Australia is cottoning on too. It’s Naughty Boy’s new single ‘La La La’ and it’s up a further eight spots this week to No.20. The Bruno Mars track ‘Treasure’ hits platinum (70,000 copies) at No.23 and MKTO’s new single ‘Classic’ is nine spots stronger (No.34 to No.25).
There’s been a big update for the accreditation of Jason Derulo’s ‘The Other Side’. It was merely gold last week, but this week it’s double platinum (140,000 copies) and the Will.I.Am/Miley Cyrus collaboration ‘Fall Down’ is back into the top 100 at No.29 after its recent service to media.
John Newman’s UK No.1 ‘Love Me Again’ rises again (No.40 to No.31), Rudimental’s ‘Waiting All Night’ is now platinum (No.35) and Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Do I Wanna Know?’ spends its third week in the charts at a new peak of No.37.
Paramore’s ‘Still Into You’ is now double platinum (No.43), Delta’s ‘Heart Hypnotic’ slides further (No.31 to No.45) and Rihanna’s smash ‘Stay’ pokes its head back into the top half of the charts at No.50.
In the lower half of the chart this week, there’s a big move for Bliss N Eso’s ‘Act Yo Age’, which bullets from No.78 to No.51 ahead of a gold accreditation for J-Lo’s ‘Live It Up’ (No.52) and the week’s highest debut – Jay-Z & Justin Timberlake’s ‘Holy Grail’ (No.54).
Selena Gomez’ track ‘Come & Get It’ has been wavering around the ’60s for the past couple of weeks, but is now into the top 60 at No.59 (the track’s highest peak so far), Grouplove’s ‘Ways To Go’ is up 14 places to No.60 and the new Justin Timberlake single ‘Tunnel Vision’ enters the chart fray at No.63.
Jason Mraz’ ‘I Won’t Give Up’ rebounded into the countdown last week at No.30 after the song appeared in promotional spots for the last ever episode of ‘Packed To The Rafters’. Now the show’s gone, the single has too; it’s down from No.30 to No.71. Ellie Goulding’s new track ‘Burn’ debuts at No.72.
Hillsong Young & Free’s ‘Alive’ plunges from a No.50 debut to No.94 and there are re-entries at Nos.96 and 99 for Imagine Dragons’ ‘It’s Time’ and Boy & Bear’s ‘Southern Sun’ respectively.
It was all about Bliss N Eso on the ARIA albums chart last week, after the hip hoppers debuted in the No.1 spot with their new long player ‘Circus In The Sky’. The album falls to No.3 this week, but picks up a handy gold sales accreditation (35,000 copies).
So who’s the familiar face back in the top spot? Why that’d be ‘The Voice’ winner Harrison Craig, whose ‘More Than A Dream’ surges back to No.1 ahead of a No.2 debut for Jay-Z’s highly anticipated ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’.
It’s all P!nk at positions four and five with her latest album ‘The Truth About Love’ and her ‘Greatest Hits… So Far!!!’ respectively.
Josh Pyke’s new album ‘The Beginning And The End Of Everything’ debuts in the top ten – at No.7 – the performer’s fourth consecutive top ten album.
Agnetha’s ‘A’ is still in the top ten (No.8), Rudimental’s ‘Home’ is up from No.17 to No.12 and ’25 Years : The Chain’ by Fleetwood Mac bullets into the top 20 (No.31 to No.17).
With the tour in full swing, P!nk’s previous album ‘Funhouse’ has bulleted back into the top 50. The 11 times platinum releases rockets up 51 places this week to No.28.
Judith Durham’s ‘The Platinum Album’ debuts at No.36, Mumford & Sons’ ‘Babel’ is up ten spots (No.37), Justin Timberlake’s ‘The 20/20 Experience’ is up from No.64 to No.41 and Glass Towers’ ‘Halcyon Days’ debuts at No.42.

But Big Scary’s ‘Not Art’ drops from No.32 to No.51 and Bruno Mars’ ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ is down from No.35 to No.52.
Further down, P!nk’s eleven times platinum ‘I’m Not Dead’ is back into the countdown at No.59, Lana Del Rey’s ‘Born To Die’ drops from No.34 to No.65 and a new release for Letlive at No.66 (‘The Blackest Beautiful’).
