The new Australian Singles Report

Staff Writer

The new Australian Singles Report is the first in Australia to combine radio and streaming plays , digital sales and video plays. Every Monday morning at 9am The Music Network’s new Australian Singles Report will feature on Radio Today.

Our new Radio Wrap features – The Top 20, Most Added, New To Radio and new Nova, Hit, KIIS,  triple J and Triple M Top Spins of the Week.

James Arthur’s Say You Won’t Let Go  still sits firmly at #1 on the Hot 100, having taken the top airplay spot for five weeks now. Zara Larsson came out ahead as the #1 Heatseeker, however, now at #39 from #82 with the track I Would Like.  Australian comedian Em Rusciano is the #1 Breaker this week with her debut single Versions Of Me.  The track had an impressive first week at commercial radio where it received additions to almost every major commercial station, even taking #6 on the Most Added chart.

Little Mix had a great week on commercial with Shout Out To My Ex  making the Top 5 spins on all three commercial networks. Now at #2 on the Hot 100, it’s also topping the South Australian & Northern Territory charts, and is the official ‘Most Heard’ track across both states. Triple M’s spins remain largely uniform with Kings Of Leon’s Waste A Moment  holding #1. Green Day’s Bang Bang  takes #2 after swapping places with blink-182’s She’s Out Of Her Mind,  now at #3. It proved to be an interesting week for the rock network’s additions, with several Triple M stations adding Rag ‘N’ Bone Man’s soul/funk single Human  as their record of the week. An interesting choice.

 James Arthur’s Say You Won’t Let Go has entered its fourth week running at #1 on the Artist Top 50, while maintaining his #1’s on both the Hot 100 and iTunes chart. Little Mix’s Shout Out To My Ex makes it to #2, mirroring the success it saw on the Hot 100. The UK #1 also sits at #4 on the iTunes chart. The impact Spotify has on the Artist Top 50 remains volatile compared to the other charts, though its influence isn’t completely hindered by it. The Weeknd’s Starboy still holds #1 on the Spotify chart for its fifth week, while placing at #9 on the Artist Top 50.  Rae Sremmurd’s Black Beatles is indicative of Spotify’s potential impact on the chart, with recent
movement lending itself to this fact. Now at #4 (up from #40) on the Spotify chart, it helped push the
track into the Top 20 of the Artist Top 50. Black Beatles entered from the edge of the chart at #48.
Two weeks after its official service to commercial radio, Milky Chance’s comeback single Cocoon takes #1 on the Most Added To Radio chart. Its biggest supporters were the Nova Network and KIIS, where it was the only track added this week. The xx’s new single On Hold takes #2 followed by last week’s New Single Spotlight, Make Me (Cry) by Noah Cyrus ft. Labrinth. Childish Gambino’s latest cut Redbone makes the most of an addition to both triple j and Ash London Live, effectively hitting two birds (alternative and commercial), with one stone.  Mura Masa’s Love$ick ft. A$AP Rocky is back in the chart at #8, months after its release. Late
adoptio n from the Nova Network and Ash London Live is the driving force behind this.

 Following her performance with Flume at last week’s ARIA Awards, Tove Lo treats commercial to True Disaster.  The single was the #4 Most Added track to US Radio two weeks ago and is almost 10 million streams deep on Spotify – it’s set to make a dent on commercial playlists. Sia’s new cut taken from the Lion soundtrack, Never Give You Up,  ought to turn heads as all of her tracks are wont to do. Meanwhile, PNAU’s Chameleon  gets an official commercial service after weeks of the track making its way through Viral and Prediction charts; it’s now clocked over 650,000 streams. An independent addition last week of Andy Grammer’s Fresh Eyes  last week indicates the track is gaining even more commercial traction. The addition to Nova Brisbane could very well lead to further adoption from fellow commercial stations in the coming weeks. Go to to view all this week’s Singles To Radio and Most Added singles.
