The Music Network Chart Wrap: Aug 20
In a new weekly piece in Radio Today, the crew from The Music Network will let us know what's going on in music with their Chart Wrap.
Katy Perry’s new single Roar smashed it out of the park this week; it was the most added track to radio by far, with adds across 192 Australian stations. Roar also debuted at #35 in our Hot 100 in its first week of ads! A fantastic achievement. Jessica Mauboy has jumped up ten spots to sit just outside of the top 10 in her fourth week of chart life, while Flo Rida and Pitbull’s Can’t Believe It sits at #14, up from last week's debut at #38.
Jessie J’s It’s My Party debuted at #31 this week after its third week on radio. What Now from Rihanna has moved up 12 spots to sit at #22 and Paramore’s Ain’t It Fun has also cracked the top 50 in its first week in the chart. Our favourite Kiwi has been moved down the charts to #5 from her position at #2 last week, and once again Avicii holds strong in the number 1 spot for his 8th week in our charts – and I for one welcome our new Swedish overlord.

This week’s ARIA singles chart sees Avicii dragged kicking and screaming from his #1 spot this week by Dirty Talkin’ duo Jason Derulo and 2 Chainz. This is the second single to debut at #1 for Derulo, The first being In My Head back in 2010. Katy Perry’s Roar has jumped in at #3; it’s the first single from her new album by the same name due for release in the coming months. Avicii’s Wake Me Up, Lorde’s The Love EP and One Republic’s Counting Stars make up the top 5.
Rihanna’s What Now has jumped 14 places to #23 while Lady Gaga has slipped in at #19 with Applause. It’s her first offering from her third album Artpop, and it’s the ever-controversial pop star’s first single to break the top 50 since You & I back in 2011.
Sydney trio RüFüS’ debut album Atlas has debuted at #1 this week in the albums chart – an incredible achievement from the young indie-dancers. Dead Letter Circus is in at #2 with their second album The Catalyst Fire. It’s also their second album to debut at #2 in the albums chart after This Is The Warning back in 2010. Fleetwood Mac’s new compilation is in at #3. 25 years – The Chain is a re-release of the 1992 four-disc best-of by the same name.
Other notable debuts this week include Cloud Control’s Dream Cave (#9), From Death To Destiny from Asking Alexandra (#11) and Bastille’s Bad Blood (#18).
