Wait, what? Another ARIA Chart Watch already?
Yes, it’s Saturday afternoon, which means definitely time to roll out our weekly look at the ARIA top 100 charts.
Will Dean Lewis still be No.1 on the singles chart? Will Eminem still be dominating the albums chart?
Read on below to find out in edition #490 of ARIA Chart Watch!
Well first things first… yes, Dean Lewis is still dominating the ARIA singles chart with his double platinum smash ‘Be Alright’. It’s sitting pretty in top spot on the local countdown for a fifth successive week and still holding off the Benny Blanco/Halsey/Khalid single ‘Eastside’, which this week picks up a platinum certification for sales in excess of 70,000 units down under.
George Ezra is steady in position three, but its position is seriously under challenge by the Calvin Harris/Sam Smith collaboration ‘Promises’, which bullets from No.12 to No.4.
Good news also for the Maroon 5/Cardi B single ‘Girls Like You’, which edges back into the top five (No.7 to No.5) and scores a new triple platinum accreditation. It was only sporting platinum this week, but has scored a major tweak to its rating, with more than 210,000 unit sales now in the bag.
The week’s highest debut comes courtesy of Lil Pump and Kanye West; ‘I Love It’ new at No.7.
Drake’s former No.1 smash ‘In My Feelings’ is another track scoring quite the certification update this week. It also shifts from a single platinum accreditation to triple platinum (No.10).
Marshmello and Bastille’s ‘Happier’ continues its chart climb (No.19 to No.13), as does the new Bazzi single ‘Beautiful’ (No.21 to No.15).
Eminem album track ‘The Ringer’ tumbles from No.5 on debut to No.18, with Ariana Grande’s ‘God Is A Woman’ (sporting a new platinum certification) sitting pretty at No.20.
Another accreditation update this week comes courtesy of Juice WRLD’s former top ten hit ‘Lucid Dreams’. It’s now double platinum (140,000 unit sales) at No.23.
The Loud Luxury single ‘Body’ is up from No.32 to No.25 and Zedd and Elley Duhe’s ‘Happy Now’ leaps from No.35 to a new peak of No.27.
Silk City, Dua Lipa, Diplo and Mark Ronson power up the top 40 with a No.33 debut for their collaboration ‘Electricity’, while the Eminem track ‘Fall’ does precisely what it says on the box (No.22 on debut to No.36).
Imagine Dragons are back in the ARIA top 50, this time with their track ‘Natural’, which jumps 21 places to spend its fifth week in the countdown in position 37.
Eminem’s ‘Greatest’ is another suffering the second week slides (down from No.15 on debut to No.38).
Dynoro’s ‘In My Mind’ is up from a No.53 debut to No.41, Billie Eilish’s ‘Lovely’ hits double platinum (steady at No.45) and the Jason Derulo/David Guetta plus Kian singles (‘Goodbye’ and ‘Waiting’ respectively) both edge into the top 50 (No.52 to No.48 and No.62 to No.50 respectively).
Beyond the top 50, Drake’s ‘Nonstop’ is headed north again (No.61 to No.51, but is still a long way shy of its No.5 debut in album release week.
The story is building for the new Alesso single ‘Remedy’, which bullets from a No.81 debut to No.56 in week two.
There’s a No.61 debut for Machine Gun Kelly’s ‘Rap Devil’, a No.71 to No.64 improvement for Tom Walker’s ‘Leave A Light On’ (a new peak), but big drops for Eminem’s ‘Venom’ and ‘Stepping Stone’ (down from No.37 to No.65 and No.34 to No.67 respectively).
Eminem’s ‘Normal’ falls further though… down 36 places to No.69. And his ‘Good Guy’ is down 29 to No.75.
In between both lies a No.74 re-entry (a new peak) for the Morgan Evans track ‘Day Drunk’, proving those little promo tours can deliver the goods.
His ‘Summertime Magic’ might have flown the chart coop, but Childish Gambino’s determined to inject a little sunshine into the ARIA top 100; this week via a No.79 debut for ‘Feels Like Summer’.
Mac Miller’s ‘Self Care’ is new at No.83, Jess Glynne’s ‘All I Am’ debuts at No.92, but Eminem’s ‘Nice Guy’ takes a big tumble, down from No.48 on debut to No.94.
Billie Eilish’s ‘You Should See Me In A Crown’ loses 22 places… from No.77 to No.99.
Troye Sivan’s album track ‘My My My’ and ‘Dance To This’ both lose their place in the ARIA top 100 after the release of his sophomore album last week. But the latter (with Ariana Grande) bids goodbye to the top 100 sporting a new gold certification.
No change to the No.1 spot on the ARIA albums chart, with Eminem’s ‘Kamikaze’ still holding fort in pole position after debuting there last week.
But there are three debuts inside the ARIA top ten, including a very decent No.2 debut for Byron Bay trio Skeggs and their debut long player ‘My Own Mess’.
Ariana Grande’s at No.3, Sir Paul McCartney premieres at No.4 with ‘Egypt Station’ and Drake’s steady in position five with ‘Scorpion’.
Mac Miller’s album ‘Swimming’ had so far peaked in the No.21 position, but after the rapper’s sudden death last week, the LP re-enters in the top 100 at No.7.
$uicideboy$ are the other act to score a top ten debut this week. Their ‘I Want To Die In New Orleans’ premieres at the even No.10.
Troye Sivan’s ‘Bloom’ drops from No.3 on debut to No.11. Tash Sultana’s album ‘Flow State’ drops from No.2 on debut to No.14.
The Human Nature album ‘Romance Of The Jukebox’ is also down slightly this week (albeit only eight places), but down nonetheless to No.24.
The drop for The Amity Affliction’s former No.1 album ‘Misery’ is in double figures, however… down 11 to No.28.
A little further down, we see a ten place rise for Imagine Dragons’ ‘Evolve’ (No.47 to No.37), a No.38 debut for Lauren Daigle’s ‘Look Up Child’ and a No.53 to No.39 jump for Maroon 5’s ‘Singles Collection’.
Good news for the Russ album ‘Zoo’ (with a No.43 debut), but not such good news for Passenger’s album ‘Runaway’, which debuted strongly at No.7 last week, but loses a huge 41 places in week two.
Keith Urban’s ‘Graffiti U’ is also down this week (down 15 to be precise) to No.49.
Maroon 5’s ‘Red Pill Blues’ is up (No.75 to No.51), but Why Don’t We’s ‘8 Letters’ EP tanks. The latter debuted at No.10 last week, but is a huge 45 places lower in week two.
Even Phil Collins couldn’t hang on to a top 50 berth with ‘The Singles’ this week. It’s down 25 places to No.56.
There’s a No.57 debut for Clutch’s ‘Book Of Bad Decisions’, a huge No.23 to No.65 drop for Jimmy Barnes’ ‘Working Class Boy : The Soundtracks’ and a 22 place fall for Celine Dion’s ‘The Best So Far’ (No.44 to No.66).
Mac Miller’s ‘The Divine Feminine’ is back into the countdown at No.78. As is the Olivia Newton-John best-of ‘Hopelessly Devoted’ (No.82) after last week’s feature story on Channel 7’s ‘Sunday Night’.
But the Aled Jones album ‘One Voice : Believe’ dives 32 to No.89, Elvis Presley’s ‘Where No One Stands Alone’ loses 48 to No.99 and the new Wiggles album ‘Wiggle Pop!’ plummets out of the top 100 entirely after debuting last week at No.24.
