The Music Network Chart Wrap: April 3
MOST ADDED TO RADIO
1. Whatever We Want by Havana Brown (listen below)
2. Loco by Joel Fletcher feat. Seany B
3. Surfboard by Cody Simpson
TOP SINGLE TO RADIO
Don't Kill the Magic by MAGIC!
We have a new #1, as Clean Bandit’s Rather Be finally knocks Pharrell from the top. The track might not be there for long though, as Calvin Harris’ Summer has jumped to #3 in only its second week in the chart, while Sia’s Chandelier climbs to #11 in its second week. Radio are loving these two monster tracks, and considering Clean Bandit’s Rather Be has been in the TMN Hot 100 for eight weeks, either one of these songs could hit the top as support for Rather Be inevitably fades.
Nothing too interesting elsewhere in the chart, some slight shuffles, and a big move from #60 to #35 by The Chainsmokers’ #Selfie, which entered the ARIA top 5 this week. In the lower reaches of the chart, Taylor Henderson’s Borrow My Heart has moved from #67 to #51, 30 Seconds To Mars’ overblown City Of Angels has entered at #55 – no doubt due to the group currently being in the country – and Sheppard’s Geronimo has moved from #87 to #65.
1. Rather Be by Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne
2. Happy by Pharrell Williams
3. Summer by Calvin Harris
4. Shot me Down by David Guetta
5. She Looks So Perfect by 5 Seconds of Summer
Sydney lads 5 Seconds Of Summer have knocked Pharrell off the top spot, ending his eleven-week reign and becoming the first Australian act to hit #1 in 2014.
Pharrell’s Happy now sits at #2, followed by Clean Bandit’s Rather Be, David Guetta’s Shot Me Down and The Chainsmokers #Selfie, which we predicted would do big business in this country. Considering how quickly it is climbing the TMN Hot 100 airplay chart as well, we might have another novelty #1 on our hands before too long.
Peking Duk’s High has risen from #13 to #8, to score the Canberra group their first ARIA top ten single. Sia is also enjoying her highest charting single to date, as Chandelier leaps an impressive 26 spots to sit at #13, second week in. We predict it will shuffle into the top ten next week.
The highest debut was another Aussie group, Sheppard, whose Geronimo has landed at #28 – a great first week, and their second appearance in the chart, after their debut EP hit #18 last July.
After two weeks of sitting at #2, it seems that INXS fever is long from over, as the Aussies manage to climb back into pole position this week, toppling Kylie, whose Kiss Me Once has dropped to #6 in its second week. Below INXS, Pharrell’s annoyingly-spaced G I R L climbs from #3 to #2, the Frozen soundtrack jumps from #6 to #3, Skrillex’ surprise release Recess moves up one spot to #4, and Katy Perry’s Prism shuffles from #7 to #5.
Highest debut this week comes from My Chemical Romance, whose greatest hits collection May Death Never Stop You enters the chart at #11. Slightly lower Avicii’s re-imagining of his album True – True: Avicii by Avicii (confused yet) – debuted at #16, while The Wiggles’ greatest hits set Hot Potatoes! The Best Of The Wiggles debuted at #32, surprisingly their highest ever chart placement.
