The Jonas Brothers make it three weeks atop the Aussie singles chart with their comeback smash ‘Sucker’. But there’s change at No.1 on the albums chart on this week’s ARIA Chart Watch!
Get your head around the debuts, the big movers, the new certifications and more right here…
As mentioned in the opener, it’s a third successive week atop the ARIA singles chart for the new Jonas Brothers single ‘Sucker’.
Their closest challenger this week is, as it was last week, Post Malone. But it’s ‘Wow’ and not ‘Sunflower’ that’s posting gains this week, edging from No.3 to No.2 as ‘Sunflower’ drops from No.2 to No.3.
Dominic Fike’s track ‘3 Nights’ has been edging higher each week for the past 13 weeks. And this week it finally cracks the top five in Australia. It’s up three to a new peak of No.5.
Great news for Australia’s own Dean Lewis too; his latest single ‘7 Minutes’ is up seven places to a new peak of No.10, just as his new album makes its debut over on the albums side of the draw. Not only does it hit a new chart high, it also picks up the week’s first accreditation… a platinum one for sales in excess of 70,000 units.
P!nk’s latest track ‘Walk Me Home’ also hits a new peak (up one to No.11) and also scores a new certification… a gold one for sales in excess of 35,000 units.
Dean Lewis’s former No.1 smash ‘Be Alright’ also benefits from the release of his new album, improving 11 places to No.17.
There’s another new certification at No.19. It’s the Calvin Harris/Rag ‘N’ Bone Man track ‘Giant’, which is now platinum and also hits a new Aussie chart peak.
The Marshmello/Chvrches track ‘Here With Me’ continues to make gains, bulleting from No.35 to No.22.
More love for Dean Lewis, with a No.26 debut for ‘Stay Awake’. The new Ava Max single ‘So Am I’, meantime, is into the top 50 for the first time, rocketing from No.53 to No.29.
The Yungblud track ’11 Minutes’ may have lost seven positions, but it’s gained a gold accreditation.
After debuting at No.62 on last week’s chart, the Lewis Capaldi track ‘Someone You Loved’ makes a splash in the upper half of the countdown, bulleting 16 places in week two.
Lil Nas X scores a top 50 debut (No.47) with ‘Old Town Road’.
A couple of debuts in the low 60s; Juice WRLD’s ‘Fast’ at No.62 and Tame Impala’s ‘Patience’ at No.63.
With the Dean Lewis album out, his previous five times platinum smash ‘Waves’ is back in the top 100, re-entering at No.68.
Good news for Amy Shark with a new No.70 peak for her latest track ‘Mess Her Up’, but Dan + Shay’s ‘Tequila’ stumbles after peaking at No.66 (it’s down to No.79).
Bebe Rexha’s ‘Last Hurrah’ is on its way down (No.65 to No.85), while Tones And I’s ‘Johnny Run Away’ premieres at No.94.
You’ve got to love a No.1 debut for your debut album, right? And that’s precisely what local singer songwriter Dean Lewis has achieved this week; his long player ‘A Place We Knew’ up there in top spot, knocking Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ from its perch.
A massive jump, meantime, for the new Bryan Adams album ‘Shine A Light’. It debuted at No.21 a couple of weeks back before sliding to No.76 last Saturday. This week, however, it’s back up to a new peak of No.7.
There are debuts in positions 10 and 11 for Motley Crue’s ‘The Dirt Soundtrack’ and Flume’s ‘Hi This Is Flume’ mixtape respectively.
The Murlocs also place in the top 20 on debut with ‘Manic Candid Episode’ (No.16).
It’s been on the ARIA countdown for a staggering 317 weeks, but this week the Cold Chisel best-of ‘All For You’ finally gets a big certification tweak. It’s soared from double platinum to four times platinum (280,000 units).
Also getting a new accreditation this week is the Travis Scott album ‘Astroworld’, which has hit gold at No.30.
There’s a No.33 debut for the Rich The Kid album ‘The World Is Yours 2’, but there’s a massive drop from No.14 to No.42 for the Florida Georgia Line album ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country’.
Motley Crue’s best-of is back in the top 100 at No.44, while the Guns N’ Roses best-of rises from No.67 to No.48.
But some albums are headed in the other direction… Ocean Alley’s ‘Chiaroscuro’ down from No.39 to No.50 and Hozier’s ‘Wasteland, Baby!’ down from No.37 to No.54.
There’s a 28 spot rise for the Crowded House best-of (No.83 to No.55), but there’s a 33 place drop for Kerser’s ‘Lifestyle’ (No.30 to No.63).
There are also drops for Morgan Wallen’s ‘If I Know Me’ (No.53 to No.78), while Dido’s ‘Still On My Mind’ plunges from No.44 to No.81. There’s a bit of love for the Bryan Adams ‘Ultimate’ collection at No.82.
Not such great news, however, for the likes of Jack Savoretti’s ‘Singing To Strangers’, which drops more than 77 places from last week’s No.23 debut.
Also The Eagles’ best-of ‘Selected Works : 1972-1999’ plummets, losing more than 92 places and losing a grip on a top 100 berth.
