Justin Bieber sees a small gain at #3 from #5 though it’s unlikely Adele will be moving anytime soon. Shawn Mendes makes for the only notably entry into the Top 10 at #9 from #13 after weeks of steady progress in the Hot 100 with Stitches.
Guy Sebastian has a strong second week on radio with Black & Blue moving up to #13 from #45. 99 Souls’ The Girl Is Mine featuring Destiny’s Child & Brandy take #3 up from #61 on its second week in the chart, as does Fleur East’s Sax at #39 from #73.
Most moved this week is a new Justin Bieber single taken from Purpose. The trackLove Yourself jumps to #21 from #62, a total of 41 places.
One debut makes it into the Top 50 this week wit Elle King’s Ex’s & Oh’s making the debut at #44. Troye Sivan’s Youth narrowly misses out at #52.
Adele remains at #1 on the ARIA Singles chart with Hello for what is now week five. It maintains its hold as her old #1 charting single Someone Like You re-enters at #41. It leads ahead of Justin Bieber’s Love Yourself which takes over Sorry at #2 from #3.
X Factor winner Cyrus debuts at #4 with Stone while Shawn Mendes’ Stitches takes #6 form #10, sitting comfortably on a Gold accreditation.
Rudimental jumps to #12 from #18 with Lay It On Me featuring Ed Sheeran, moving just ahead of Adele’s When We Were Young, which debuts at #13.
Vance Joy returns to #20 from #35 with Fire And The Flood following the hype surrounding his support slot on Taylor Swift’s current tour of Australia.
One late notable debut comes at #3 with Major Lazer’s Be Together featuring Wild Belle thanks to the group’s current tour of the country as a headlining act of Stereosonic.
Adele scores her second #1 on the ARIA Albums chart this week as 25 debuts with triple Platinum accreditation. It follows 21 which peaked at #1 in May of 2011 and now currently sits at #7 while other album 19 sits at #13. 25’s debut makes for the highest selling debut week in over 10 years and also gives Adele another week of concurrently topping the Albums and Singles chart – the first time this happened was in 2011 with single Someone Like You and album 21.
