HOT 100

Pharrell Williams’ Happy still reigns supreme over the Hot 100, in what is now his fourth week at number one. He’s holding it down on the ARIA Singles chart, and climbing in the US of A too, with a big move up to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and in the UK where he’s just hit #3 on the iTunes singles chart, #2 on Music Week‘s singles chart and #1 on the Airplay chart. If he can crack Billboard this week he’ll have the trifecta. HUGE! He’s followed closely by previous number 1: John Legend’s All Of Me at #2 – he’s on the out though, as we can see P1, P2 and P3 values slipping for him.

Rudimental are on the rise, from #6 to #3 this week with Free. I’m happy to see radio embrace another part of EDM that’s not your standard 4/4 house music, and it’s great to see Rudimental getting some top 5 chart action. They’ve done the hard yards recently, churning out hit after hit and touring relentlessly. They’re followed by last week’s #3: Rude by MAGIC!. Joel Fletcher is down one place from last week to #5 with Swing.

New to the top 10 this week are A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera with Say Something, at #6.The single has been tracking well in the US too: it’s reached a new peak this week in the Billboard chart at #4. We expect we haven’t seen the last of this single – a jump from 12th place to 6th place is no small task. Rihanna’s Jump is at #7, up from #11 last week. It’s also at #5 in the ARIA singles chart. The top 10 is rounded out by Avicii’s Addicted To You at #8, Aloe Blacc’s The Man at #9 and Jason Derulo’s Trumpets at #10.

Outside of the top 10, UK sensation Clean Bandit’s Rather Be is at #14 up from #39 last week, marking the biggest gain of the week. The chilled out dreamy house single broke Spotify records last week, and is enjoying strong moves here. It’s debuted this week at #15 on the ARIA singles chart and is still #1 on iTunes UK chart, UK Singles, and #2 on the Airplay chart. Cash Cash’s Take Me Home is at #15 up from #22, and The Vamps Can We Dance is at #17 up from #23.

A little further down the chart we see more big moves from last week’s Most Added list, Sara Bareilles is up 24 spots from #49 to #25 this week with Brave and Kim Cesarion’s Undressed is up 13 places to #27. Beyonce and Jay Z’s Drunk In Love is also up 24 spots from #67 to #43. The two new tracks within the top 50 come just on the cusp of the cut off: last week’s third Most Added track Braveheart from Neon Jungle at #46 ,and #9 Most Added Let Go For Tonight by Foxes at #50.

Pharrell is Happy for another week! After dropping down to #2 last week, he’s returned to the top spot for what is his sixth week. #2 this week is Say Something from Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World, at #3 is John Legend’s All Of Me, #4 is Joel Fletcher’s Swing and #5 is Rihanna’s Jump. Last week, Jump became Rih Rih’s twentieth single to grace the ARIA top 10, and its move to #5 makes it her thirteenth top 5 hit.

Cash Cash feat. Bibi Rexha’s Take Me Home sits at #8, having jumped a total of 25 spots – the New Jersey electronic trio score their first top 10 appearance in the ARIA charts. Fun Fact: featured vocalist Bibi Rexha was one of the co-writers of the Eminem and Rihanna hit The Monster.

Clean Bandit make their ARIA top 50 debut with Rather Be. The track is killing it overseas, debuting at #1 in the UK Singles chart – a spot it’s now occupied for three weeks. INXS’ Never Tear Us Apart follows closely at #16, after a jump of 29 places off the back of their TV miniseries by the same name. It now sits two spots below its peak position of #14, which it reached in September 1988. They currently have 7 singles in the top 100.


It’s times like this that make me happy. INXS’ The Very Best has become their first #1 in 24 years and marks the longest break between #1 albums for an Australian group in ARIA history. Their previous #1s include The Swing (’84), Listen Like Thieves (’85), and X (’90). Four of the group’s studio albums are now back in the top 100, including Kick at #7, Shabooh Shoobah at #41, The Swing at #43 and Listen Like Thieves at #53.

The John Butler Trio’s new album Flesh & Blood has debuted at #2 this week. It’s their sixth studio album and their first in nearly four years. Between studio albums, the group released the live album Live At Red Rocks (in 2011) and John Butler released the live solo album Tin Shed Days in 2012.

The rest of the top 5 contains High Hopes by Bruce Springsteen at #3, the soundtrack to Frozen, still at #4 and Lorde’s Pure Heroine at #5.

Neil Finn’s Dizzying Heights has debuted at #6. The third solo album from Neil Finn is his first since 2001’s One Nil. At #14, Broken Bells debut with their second album After The Disco. The group is made up of The Shins’ James Mercer and producer/multi-instrumentalist Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse).
