TOP SINGLE TO RADIO
Impossible by 360 feat Daniel Johns
John Legend remains the most heard man in Australia for another week with his smash All Of Me. He’s followed closely by Pharrell Williams’ Happy which has jumped up from #4 last week to sit at #2. Pharrell is, in fact, enjoying airplay on more stations than John Legend – we predict it to hit the top spot next week. MAGIC! continue their rise up from #5 to #4 this week. Rude has been in the charts now for eight weeks and it’s been a slow rise, but we believe they’re not quite done yet.
The biggest mover this week comes in the form of Joel Fletcher’s Swing, which jumped a total of 18 places to join the top 10 at #7. The success of this track really couldn’t have been predicted, as it went Platinum this week in Australia – which speaks to our countries newfound EDM obsession. Speaking of EDM, Avicii sits just ahead in the top 10 at #6 with Addicted To You, and Tiesto’s Red Lights is at #11 up from #15 last week.
Further down the charts at #33 finds Kim Cesarion’s Undressed up from #47 last week, and Bliss N Eso’s My Life at #38 from #49. Evidently these were two tracks this week that experienced a rotation change, as we’ve seen very little movement from anyone in the top 50.
At the same time, this week was the first week of new adds back to radio, with Ellie Goulding coming out on top as most popular, with Goodness Gracious being added to more than 80 stations last week, debuting in our charts at #34. Miley Cyrus’ Adore You was next to enter at #57; the follow up to her smash Wrecking Ball hasn’t made quite the same impact, but we’re expecting massive things from Miley’s latest nonetheless. The other two debuts this week are the unlikely pairing of Shakira and Rihanna with Can’t Remember To Forget You at #85, and Aloe Blacc at #99 with The Man, ahead of an official service.
Ed Sheeran’s I See Fire has jumped 13 places to sit just outside the top 50 at #51, and Robin Thicke’s Feel Good, which debuted at #65 last week, has jumped 10 spots to #55.
1. All of me by John Legend
2. Happy by Pharrell Williams
3. Trumpets by Jason Derulo
4. Rude by MAGIC!
5. Like a Drum by Guy Sebastian
Pharrell Williams may still be in contention for the #1 spot on our Hot 100 but he’s held the #1 spot on the ARIA singles chart for a third consecutive week with Happy. Joel Fletcher’s Swing has mirrored his efforts in our Hot 100, jumping up three spots to #3 in its tenth week. Joel’s only other ARIA appearance was with Will Sparks for Bring It Back, back in October 2013. London Grammar’s Strong has finally cracked the top 10, the week that their national tour wrapped up. They’re currently sitting at #6; Strong is their first single to ever crack the top 10.
Red Lights is up to #12 again mirroring its work in the Hot 100. Dutch Trance DJ Tiesto has moved up 17 spots from last week, in his third week in the top 50 – with Red Lights his first track to ever make the ARIA top 50. Kim Cesarion’s Undressed has debuted at #18 this week, and is also the Swedish singer-songwriter’s debut single. The single has charted in the top 10 in several countries, including his homeland.
Beyonce is atop the chart again for a third week. The self-titled album has also become her most successful album in the ARIA charts as it chalks up its fifth week in the top 5. The soundtrack to Frozen sits at #3. Three tracks from the album were featured in the ARIA singles chart this week: Let It Go by Idina Menzel #20, Demi Lovato’s Let It Go at #25 and Do You Want To Build A Snowman at #45.
The Very Best of INXS is back in the charts at #11 this week, ahead of the much-touted TV mini-series (which should hopefully propel Samantha Jade into the charts, too). It spent 22 consecutive weeks in the top 50 since its release in November 2011.
