It’s the superstar pairing of the year and it’s resulted in a No.1 single down under.
In this week’s ARIA Chart Watch, we check out the new certifications, the big moves, the debuts and more.
So let’s crack on!
Starting at the very top and there’s change at No.1 on the ARIA singles chart this week, with the superstar pairing of Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber proving too much for anyone else to conquer.
Their new track ‘I Don’t Care’ premieres in pole position, knocking Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’ down to two and Billie Eilish’s ‘Bad Guy’ down to three.
Shawn Mendes holds at four with ‘If I Can’t Have You’ and Dominic Fike maintains his hold on the No.5 spot with ‘3 Nights’.
Losing ground this week, however, is the latest Taylor Swift single ‘Me!’ (with Brendon Urie). It’s down from three to six in week three.
The ascension of Lewis Capaldi’s track ‘Someone You Love’ continues; that track edging five spaces higher to a new peak of No.7.
Avicii’s ‘SOS’ also edges higher (to an equal peak of No.8), but the Logic and Eminem track ‘Homicide’ slides out of the top ten after just one week, dropping from No.6 to No.12.
Another big jump for Lizzo’s ‘Truth Hurts’, meantime. The track premiered two weeks back at No.74 and bulleted to No.44 last week. This week it’s up another 18 places to No.26 and is well placed to enter the Aussie top 20 this time next weekend.
Lil Dicky’s latest comes crashing back to ‘Earth’ (No.19 to No.28), but Amy Shark’s latest single ‘Mess Her Up’ continues its ascendancy, edging seven spots higher to a new peak of No.29.
There’s a No.49 to No.37 jump for Bazzi’s ‘Paradise’, a No.57 to No.40 leap for Tones And I’s ‘Johnny Run Away’ and a debut at No.41 for Fisher’s ‘You Little Beauty’.
Kygo and Rita Ora pop their heads into the ARIA top 50 for the first time with ‘Carry On’ (No.51 to No.45), but Dean Lewis’s ‘Stay Awake’ looks like it’s spending its last week in the upper half of the hundred, slipping nine places to No.47.
Just beyond the top 50 this week is a No.51 debut for the latest Luke Combs single ‘Beer Never Broke My Heart’.
Billie Eilish’s ‘My Strange Addiction’ is right behind it, having dropped from No.39.
MeduZa climbs from a No.79 debut to No.61 with ‘Piece Of Your Heart’, while Billie Eilish’s ‘You Should See Me In A Crown’ tumbles from No.47 to No.62 (there’s also a No.53 to No.65 drop for her ‘All The Good Girls Go To Hell’).
In between them, Ruel’s ‘Painkiller’ takes effect, rising from No.68 on debut to No.63.
Billie Eilish’s ‘Bellyache’ drops eleven to No.77, while the new Martin Garrix single ‘Summer Days’ (with Macklemore and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy fame) premieres at No.79.
P!nk’s ‘Hurts 2B Human’ slides again (No.65 to No.81), as does Billie Eilish’s ‘Xanny’ (No.70 to No.86).
After 19 weeks on the countdown (peaking at No.56), the Alec Benjamin track ‘Let Me Down Slowly’ is on its way out, losing 14 spots to No.88.
Falling further, however, is the Blackpink single ‘Kill This Love’, which slumps 28 places to No.90.
James Arthur scores the final debut in the top 100 this week; a No.94 premiere for his latest ‘Falling Like The Stars’.
George Ezra score the only new certification in the top 100 this week; a new platinum gong (70,000 unit sales) for his latest single ‘Hold My Girl’.
We had to wait ’til the tail end of the singles chart for a new certification. Not so here on the albums chart, with the P!nk album ‘Hurts 2B Human’ scoring a new gold accreditation (35,000 units).
Billie Eilish is also steady (No.2), though the new Lee Kernaghan album ‘Backroad Nation’ debuts in the No.3 spot.
The Seekers and Dean Lewis make up the rest of the top five with ‘Farewell’ and ‘A Place We Knew’ respectively.
The Mother’s Day thing worked well for David Campbell and his long player ‘Back In The Swing’, which gains another four positions to a new peak of No.10.
Logic misses the top ten on debut with his album ‘Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind’ (No.12), Elton John’s ‘Diamonds’ sparkles, leaping 11 to No.22, while the Mac DeMarco album ‘Here Comes The Cowboy’ enters the ARIA top 100 in the No.25 position.
Not great news for the Vampire Weekend’s album ‘Father Of The Bride’ in its second week of Aussie chart action. After debuting at No.8 last weekend, it’s dipped 19 places to No.27.
But while that album’s down, Morgan Evans’ long player ‘Things That We Drink To’ is soaring… it’s up a massive 51 places to No.29.
Almost 20 spots lower, the Eurovision Song Contest compilation is back in the top 100 at No.47 as the competition starts heating up over in Tel Aviv.
Hilltop Hoods’ ‘Drinking From The Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung’ follows it into the upper half of the hundred, improving from No.57 to No.48.
But Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ falls flat, down from No.34 to No.51.
P!nk’s ‘Greatest Hits… So Far’ is back in the top 100 at No.57, but the Human Nature album ‘Romance Of The Jukebox’ tanks. It was shining brightly in the No.22 position last week, but plunges 38 places to No.60.
The Rolling Stones’ ‘Honk’ also loses ground, down 23 to No.64, while Beyoncé’s ‘Homecoming : The Live Album’ drops from No.67 to No.83.
Those drops all pale into comparison with that for the Amon Amarth album ‘Berserker’, however. It was top 20 on debut last week (No.19), but finds itself a mammoth 67 places lower in week two at No.86.
Aldous Harding’s ‘Designer’ plunges 40 places to No.96.
But it’s the Ruby Fields album ‘Permanent Hermit/Your Dad’s Opinion For Dinner’ which drops the furthest, more than 74 places from its No.26 debut last week.
Bad Religion’s ‘Age Of Unreason’ is also gone from the top 100, having debuted last week at No.28.
