Last weekend’s Triple J Hottest 100 has a big impact on the top 100 in your latest edition of ARIA Chart Watch.
Who’s number one? Who’s jumped? Who’s dropped? Find out all you need to know in our latest instalment.
Well there’s no change to the number one spot over on the ARIA singles chart this week.
After displacing Tones And I’s ‘Dance Monkey’ from pole position seven days ago, The Weeknd holds court for the second successive week with ‘Blinding Lights’. That track made the Hottest 100 countdown, but it was down in the No.71 spot.
Also in the Hottest 100 countdown (at No.4) was Tones And I’s global smash ‘Dance Monkey’, which is steady in the No.2 position.
Billie Eilish’s former No.1 ARIA hit ‘Bad Guy’ topped the Hottest 100 countdown this year and as such surges up the chart to No.3 (up 18 places on last week).
Dua Lipa and Eminem are in positions four and five with ‘Don’t Start Now’ and ‘Godzilla’ respectively.
One track that’s benefitted big time from its inclusion in the Hottest 100 countdown is the Flume single ‘Rushing Back’ (with Vera Blue). It previously peaked in the No.15 position, but thanks to its No.2 finish on the Hottest 100 chart, it rockets from No.24 to a new ARIA chart peak of No.8.
Billie Eilish’s ‘Everything I Wanted’ (No.16 Hottest 100) rises nine places to No.11.
It slips four places to No.12 this week, but Arizona Zervas’ single ‘Roxanne’ has ticked over into platinum territory, having now sold in excess of 70,000 units in Australia.
Future and Drake’s ‘Life Is Good’ slips eight places from last week’s No.11 peak, but the Sofi Tukker single ‘Purple Hat’ (which scored a No.14 placing in the Hottest 100) bullets from No.40 to a new peak of No.23.
No Jonas Brothers on Triple J. That hasn’t impacted on the boys’ ability to climb the charts in the midst of all this Hottest 100 palaver, however. Their new track ‘What A Man Gotta Do’ jumps 15 places from last week’s No.39 debut.
Camila Cabello’s single ‘My Oh My’ achieves a gold sales accreditation (35,000 unit sales) in the No.29 spot.
Travis Scott’s ‘Highest In The Room’ jumps eight to No.30 and there are good gains from Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’ (No.43 to No.33, no doubt thanks in part to his performance on the Grammys) and Freya Ridings’ ‘Castles’ (No.44 to No.34).
MeduZa is back into the top half of the hundred with ‘Piece Of Your Heart’. It’s up from No.57 to No.40, no doubt thanks to a No.29 place finish in the Hottest 100 countdown.
The bad news for ‘Good News’ by Mac Miller is that the track has lost almost all the ground it gained last week. After debuting at No.43, it jumped to No.27 last week. Now it’s back down to No.42.
Shaed and Zayn’s ‘Trampoline’ has achieved a sales bounce; it’s now platinum certified at No.44.
Doja Cat’s ‘Say So’ is into the top 50 for the first time (No.55 to No.47), Halsey scrapes back in with ‘Graveyard’ (No.51 to No.48) and Mallrat premieres in the even No.50 spot with ‘Charlie’. The latter placed at No.3 on the Hottest 100 countdown.
Beyond the fifty this week, The Rubens’ new track continues its ascension, climbing another nine places to No.53.
Endor’s ‘Pump It Up’ also experiences a good gain, up from No.69 to a new peak of No.55.
Seven days ago, it appeared the ARIA chart party was all over for Billie Eilish’s ‘When The Party’s Over’. Seven days on, however, it’s back. It’s up a huge 42 places to No.56 – and that’s despite not actually appearing in the Hottest 100.
That track’s up. But the Eminem and Ed Sheeran track ‘Those Kinda Nights’ is down. Big time. Down 32 places from last week’s No.25 debut.
Hilltop Hoods’ ‘Exit Sign’ is back into the ARIA top 100 at No.59.
The Jungle Giants score a debut with their track ‘Heavy Hearted’. Thanks to its eighth place finish on the Hottest 100 countdown, it premieres in the No.61 spot, armed with a gold sales accreditation to boot!
Lime Cordiale’s ‘Robbery’ (No.7 on the Hottest 100) also premieres on the main chart this week. It’s new at No.63.
There’s a ten spot second week rise (No.74 to No.64) for Saint JHN’s ‘Roses’ and an eight place second week rise for Melly’s ‘Suicidal’ (No.73 to No.65).
Ant Saunders’ ‘Yellow Hearts’ is now gold certified (No.66) and there’s a No.67 debut for Ali Gatie’s ‘What If I Told You That I Love You’.
Post Malone’s ‘Wow’ is back in chart contention (re-entering at No.70), as are G Flip’s ‘Drink Too Much’ (No.72) and Tones And I’s ‘Johnny Run Away’ (No.74). In between, Eminem’s ‘Darkness’ slumps 41 to No.73.
There’s a 15 place improvement for Blanco Brown’s ‘The Git Up’ (No.91 to No.76), a re-entry for Billie Eilish’s ‘Lovely’ (No.77) and a jump of 12 places for Dean Lewis’s ‘Be Alright’ (No.92 to No.80).
Not brilliant news for the Eminem track ‘You Gon’ Learn’ from his new album. It premiered last week at No.36, but is down a massive 47 places to No.83.
Halsey’s ‘Without Me’ dips 17 (No.67 to No.84) and Thelma Plum’s ‘Better In Blak’ debuts at No.89, but another massive drop for Eminem follows; ‘Unaccommodating’ plummeting 57 places in its second week of ARIA chart action; No.34 on debut to No.91.
Lizzo brings the ‘Juice’ to the No.100 position, on debut.
All other Eminem tracks beyond the aforementioned have disappeared from the ARIA top 100.
He scored the No.1 album in the country last weekend with his latest long player ‘Music To Be Murdered By’.
But after Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown, the party is over for Eminem.
The US rapper has been replaced in top spot this week by Billie Eilish, who, thanks to five singles within the Hottest 100 (including No.1), has seen her album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ jump from No.5 back to No.1.
Eminem’s not gone far, however. He’s down to No.2, with Harry Styles, Elton John and Halsey occupying positions three through five.
Brilliant news for the Pet Shop Boys though. Their 14th studio album ‘Hotspot’ becomes their first top ten album in Australia for almost 24 years.
Their 1996 release ‘Bilingual’ was the boys’ last long player to hit the top ten of the ARIA countdown.
Mac Miller’s album ‘Circles’, which debuted last week at No.3, dips out of the top ten, down eight to No.11. Selena Gomez’s ‘Rare’ is down from No.8 to No.13.
Billie Eilish’s ‘Don’t Smile At Me’ also receives a post-Hottest 100 bounce this week, climbing seven places to No.18. Ditto G Flip’s ‘About Us’, up 16 to No.23.
Also on the rise this week are ‘The Very Best Of INXS’ (No.35 to No.26) and Thelma Plum’s ‘Better In Blak’ (No.74 to No.31).
Tyler The Creator’s ‘Igor’ is back inside the ARIA top 50 (No.51 to No.40), as are Hilltop Hoods’ ‘The Great Expanse’ (No.52 to No.44) and Ruel’s ‘Free Time’ EP, up a huge 33 places to No.45.
Beyond the fifty this week, there’s a re-emergence for Australian Crawl’s ‘The Greatest Hits’ (No.52) and a 20 place gain for Triple J’s ‘Like A Version Vol.15’ (No.81 to no.61).
Eminem’s ‘Kamikaze’ drops 22 (No.44 to No.66), while P!nk’s latest album ‘Hurts 2B Human’ finally achieves a platinum certification, having ticked over 70,000 sales in Australia (No.67).
Coldplay’s ‘Everyday Life’ is down from No.56 to No.73, the soundtrack to the Netflix series ‘The Witcher’ premieres at No.78 and Adele’s ’25’ is down 20 to No.87.
Good news for Sticky Fingers in position 92, not only with an six place gain for ‘Caress Your Soul’, but also a fresh new platinum accreditation.
