Kygo & Ellie Goulding deliver the #1 new single to radio
In this week’s Australian Singles Report, leading the charge to radio – as he always does – is Kygo. His new treat First Time features vocal powerhouse Ellie Goulding and follows a string of fruitful team-ups with sought-after female vocalists.

Imagine Dragons make a brazen move into a new musical direction with latest cut Thunder. What is likely their most electronic sounding track to date, and according to TMN charts editor Daniel Respall, it ought to go down a treat with commercial.
“The new sound from Imagine Dragons now leaves them accessible to all the major networks and the new sound is likely to turn quite a few heads,” he said.
On top of his debut, and as predicted last week by TMN, Shawn Mendes absolutely tore it up at radio this week, followed by a similarly successful return from Charlie Puth. There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back, serviced alongside the deluxe version of Mendes’ Illuminate album.
Added across the board to commercial and regional Hit stations, both KIIS stations, Ash London Live (who added it late last week) and the Nova Network, which returned to additions following a week off. Puth’s Attention also cleans up, seeing love from KIIS and a host of other commercial stations including the ACE Radio Network.
