It’s a complete reverse of last week… change atop the singles chart, no change atop the albums chart!
In ARIA Chart Watch this week, discover who’s bagged the No.1 single down under this week and who’s shining brightly with debuts, big moves and new accreditations.
It’s what we do each and every Saturday afternoon… welcome to edition #516 of ARIA Chart Watch!
Jonas Brothers prove beyond doubt that last week’s No.5 debut was no fluke, soaring the four positions northwards to claim their first ever No.1 single in Australia.
‘Sucker’ is now a bonafide international smash, having also taken No.1 (on debut) on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in their native America.
But the brothers Jonas aren’t the only ones making big moves this week, with Post Malone’s ‘Wow’ also soaring four positions – to No.2; a new chart peak.
His collaboration with Swae Lee, ‘Sunflower’, also rises this week. But just the one position to No.3.
Ariana Grande’s ‘7 Rings’ is down from two to four, while the Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper single ‘Shallow’ tumbles from the No.1 position last week to No.5.
The first new certification of the week comes courtesy of the Dominic Fike track ‘3 Nights’, which not only soars three places and into the Aussie top ten for the first time (No.12 to No.9), but also picks up a fresh new platinum accreditation (70,000 units sold).
The Billie Eilish track ‘Wish You Were Gay’ rockets from No.57 to No.12 to snuggle in just behind her ‘Bury A Friend’ at No.11.
Though it’s down a couple of spots this week (No.13 to No.15), The Chainsmokers’ single ‘Who Do You Love’, with 5 Seconds Of Summer, achieves a gold certification (35,000 units).
And after 30 weeks, Marshmello and Bastille’s track ‘Happier’ is still in the ARIA top 20. It’s also picked up a new accreditation this week, blasting through the four times platinum mark, meaning sales in excess of 280,000 units.
The Lauv/Troye Sivan single ‘I’m So Tired…’ is starting to hit its straps, improving five to No.17 (a new peak).
Ariana’s former No.1 smash ‘Thank U, Next’ is down seven to No.25.
Khalid continues his assault on the ARIA charts with another entry; ‘My Bad’ debuting at No.30.
There’s a No.60 to No.40 jump for the new Drax Project single ‘Woke Up Late’ featuring an appearance by Hailee Steinfeld.
The Ellie Goulding/Diplo/Swae Lee single ‘Close To Me’ is now double platinum certified (140,000 units), though it’s down two to No.44.
Lukas Graham’s ‘Love Someone’ loses seven places to No.45 and after floating around the second half of the top 100 for seven weeks, the Mustard and Migos track ‘Pure Water’ finally pops its head into the top 50, rising five places to No.49.
Lady Gaga’s ‘Always Remember Us This Way’ dips 14 to No.53. It’s just ahead of a No.54 debut for the new Juice WRLD track ‘Hear Me Calling’.
There’s a No.64 debut for the Marshmello/Chvrches single ‘Here With Me’, but a worryingly big drop (No.45 to No.65) for the Zedd/Katy Perry single ‘365’. Clearly the song is out of favour with audiences.
The Charli XCX/Troye Sivan collaboration ‘1999’ drops 11 to No.66, but Bebe Rexha’s ‘Last Hurrah’ looks set to be anything but, soaring 24 positions from last week’s No.96 debut.
There’s a new gold accreditation for the 21 Savage track ‘A Lot’, despite it tumbling 17 places to No.78.
Summer Walker and Drake debut with ‘Girls Need Love’ at No.78. Ava Max debuts at No.91 with ‘So Am I’.
There are more new entries from Amy Shark (‘Mess Her Up’ at No.94), G Flip (‘Drink Too Much’ at No.96) and Lauren Daigle (‘You Say’ at No.97).
Despite the change to the top on the singles chart, there’s no change on this week’s ARIA albums chart.
The No.1 spot belongs to the Ariana Grande album ‘Thank U, Next’.
But Kerser was a close run second, with a No.2 debut for his new long player ‘Lifestyle’; the Aussie rapper’s eighth studio album also his best performing, easily eclipsing the No.4 peak of his 2016 album ‘Tradition’.
A top ten debut also for the new Juice WRLD album ‘Death Race For Love’ (No.8).
But Foals’ new album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1’ just misses a top ten berth on debut, premiering at No.11.
Debuts also for the new Dido record ‘Still On My Mind’ (No.14) and for Stella Donnelly’s ‘Beware Of The Dogs’ (No.15).
Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ scores quite the certification update. It’s been gold up ’til now, but has blasted into double platinum territory as of this week, meaning it’s sold more than 140,000 copies throughout Australia.
Hozier’s ‘Wasteland, Baby!’ is down from a No.8 debut to No.23, while the new Maren Morris album ‘Girl’ premieres at No.29.
The ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy : Awesome Mix Vol.1’ soundtrack bullets from No.53 to No.36, with big leaps also for Elton John’s ‘Diamonds’ (No.57 to No.37) and his ‘Rocket Man : The Definitive Hits’ (No.80 to No.38).
With her Aussie tour in full swing, Kylie Minogue’s latest album ‘Golden’ re-enters the Aussie chart at No.43.
The ‘Molly’ soundtrack jumps from No.77 to No.46 and ‘The Very Best’ of INXS re-enters the top 50 at No.48 (up three).
‘The Very Best Of Fleetwood Mac’ returns to the top 100 at No.55, while the soundtrack to ‘Forrest Gump’ jumps again (up from No.91 to No.56); The Eagles’ best-of also back into the top 100 in position 59.
Not great news for the Tom Walker album ‘What A Time To Be Alive’, which tumbles 42 places from last week’s No.18 debut.
Fleetwood Mac’s ’25 Years : The Chain’ returns to the top 100 at No.62, while their classic ‘Rumours’ is up 14 to No.65.
Offset tumbles with ‘Father Of 4’ (down 24 to No.67). But David Gray hits the top 100 on debut with ‘Gold In A Brass Age’ (No.71).
Not so great news for Lil Skies, with the US rapper’s sophomore album ‘Shelby’ plummeting 58 places from last week’s No.20 debut.
Arctic Monkeys’ ‘AM’ also suffers a big fall, dropping 35 to No.80.
There’s some sweet Swede at No.84 with a debut for Sigrid’s ‘Sucker Punch’, but a 17 place drops for Jonas Blue’s ‘Blue’ (No.75 to No.92).
Big second week drops for a number of last week’s top 50 debuts;
In Flames’ ‘I, The Mask’ down more than 52 places after last week’s No.48 debut.
Mansionair’s ‘Shadowboxer’ loses more than 63 places and is now gone from the top 100.
2Chainz’ ‘Rap Or Go To The League’ has gone to the post-100 league, dropping more than 65 places.
Bryan Adams’ ‘Shine A Light’ lit up the top 100 for just one week before plunging more than 79 places. It’s now also gone from the top 100.
Solange is also not immune from a huge second week fall. ‘When I Get Home’ premiered at No.17 last week, but has lost more than 83 positions and is gone from the top 100.
But the biggest fall of all this week goes to Western Australian rockers Pond, whose album ‘Tasmania’ plummets more than 85 places from last week’s No.15 debut and is now out of the top 100 entirely.
