Drake is again No.1 on the ARIA Singles Chart with his track “One Dance”, now notching up a sixth broken week at the top here, whilst it remains for an eleventh week at the top in the UK (new digital-era record) and a sixth week in the USA.
“One Dance” (#1 DL/#1 Str) is now at the top of both sales charts, the first time for digital, and the track is now certified 2x▲Platinum in sales and has now become the second longest run at the top for 2016, after the eight weeks that “7 Years” (TW-32, #32 DL/#23 Str) by Lukas Graham achieved during late February to mid-April. The current threat to Drake’s No.1 monopoly is his next single “Too Good” (#6 DL/#4 Str) with Rihanna, which is up two places to a new peak of No.3 this week, plus the track is newly certified Gold (●) in sales and is the highest charting of the four duets between Drake and Rihanna, beating “Work” (TW-56, #39 Str) which made it to No.5 back in March. And it’s also a chart-hog for Rihanna this week too, as she is guest vocalist on two of the top three this week, with her appearance on the Calvin Harris track “This is What You Came for” (#2 DL/#2 Str) on hold at No.2 again this week, the song having now spent two weeks at No.1 and six weeks at No.2, and that’s all.
The same chart feat has also been achieved by Justin Timberlake with his track “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” (#4 DL/#7 Str) which is back down one place to No.4, somewhere the track has been three times now, whilst its only other chart position has been at its peak of No.3 for four broken weeks, whilst also down one place to No.5 is Meghan Trainor and “Me Too” (#4 DL/#22 Str), with The Chainsmokers and Daya back up one spot to No.6 with “Don’t Let Me Down” (#7 DL/#6 Str), which is spending its twelfth week within the Top 10.
“Panda” (#10 DL/#5 Str) for Desiigner is up two places to a new peak of No.7 with drops for Pink and “Just Like Fire” (#5 DL/#17 Str), down two to No.8 and “Say it” (#17 DL/#3 Str) for Flume and Tove Lo moving a single spot down to No.9, whilst on hold at No.10 for another week are DNCE with “Cake by the Ocean” (#18 DL/#14 Str), which is also now ▲Platinum this week.
UP: Holding for a second week at No.11 is Ariane Grande and “Into You” (#8 DL/#12 Str) but jumping up ten places to a new peak of No.12 are Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez with “We Don’t Talk Anymore” (#11 DL/#26 Str), helped by Selena appearing on James Corden’s “Late Late Show” segment carpool karaoke this past week, plus her pending early August tour here. “Be the One” (#9 DL/#21 Str) for Dua Lipa is back up six to No.13 and up one spot to a new peak of No.17 are Kungs with local act Cookin’ on 3 Burners and “This Girl” (#19 DL/#27 Str). “In My Blood” (#14 DL) for The Veronicas is up four to No.22 and should jump next week as the physical single came out Friday and they appear on The Voice tomorrow (Sunday night). A bunch of new peaks in the mid-twenties are “Send My Love (to Your New Lover)” (#22 DL/#24 Str) for Adele which is up a place to No.24, “Hair” (#24 DL) for Little Mix is up three to No.25 and leaping sixteen to a new peak of No.26 is newcomer Imany and “Don’t Be So Shy” (#13 DL). Dami Im appeared on Channel 7’s ‘Sunday Night’ last weekend, and her single “Sound of Silence” (#12 DL) is back up a couple of spots to No.29 whilst Selena’s other (solo) charting single in the Top 40 is “Kill ’em with Kindness” (#40 DL/#28 Str) which rises two spots to a new chart height of No.35. Climbing into the Top 40 this week are Fifth Harmony with Fetty Wap on “All in My Head (Flex)” (#33 Str), up six to No.39 and last weeks second Top 50 debut in “Crash” (#29 DL) for Usher climbs eight spots to No.40. “Mama Said” (#36 DL) for Lukas Graham fell out of the Top 100 last week after a single week at No.97, but this week it returns to the hundred and re-enters at a much better peak of No.42, whilst three songs move up into the Top 50 this week, first of which “Needed Me” (#32 Str) for Rihanna is up eight to return to its former peak of No.48, then Kent Jones sees his first chart entry “Don’t Mind” moves up fifteen spots to a new peak of No.49 and finally OneRepublic and their new track “Wherever I Go” climb sixteen spots to land at No.50 this week, becoming their seventh Top 50 entry in Australia.
DOWN: No songs leave the Top 10 this week, with the only two major (barely) drops within the Top 20 being “I Hate U, I Love U” (#27 DL/#18 Str) by Gnash down three to No.16 and then “Home” (#21 DL/#19 Str) for Topic and Nico Santos drops four to No.19, and we also see “Ride” (#25 DL/#29 Str) for twenty one pilots down a place to be at their namesake of No.21 this week. “Work from Home” (#30 DL/#11 Str) for Fifth Harmony leaves the Top 20 and drops seven to No.23 whilst “Faded” (#37 DL/#20 Str) for Alan Walker is down eight to No.31 and has now been certified 3x▲Platinum in sales. Tinie Tempah and Zara Larsson sees their track “Girls Like” (#34 Str) drop six to No.43 and down eight to No.44 are Flo Rida and Jason DeRulo with “Hello Friday”. Falling into the lower fifty are “No” for Meghan Trainor (39 to 53), “Roses” for The Chainsmokers (44 to 57), “One Call Away” for Charlie Puth (49 to 59), “Gold” by Kiiara (46 to 60) and “Lush Life” for Zara Larsson (50 to 67).
There are again two songs debuting within the Top 50 this week, the highest entry comes in at No.36 and is the first single from the early August due DC Comics film “Suicide Squad”, the track being “Heathens” (#28 DL) for twenty one pilots, which gives the band three songs within the Top 40 this week, as “Ride” is at No.21 and their first entry “Stressed Out” is down a place to No.34. The second (new) entry to the fifty this week is in at No.47, “1000x” (#35 DL) for local artist Jarryd James who has enlisted the vocals of Broods as guest act on his third Top 50 and fourth Top 100 entry.
Lower 50: With the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album debuting at No.1 this week, the albums lead single “Dark Necessities” (#39 DL) returns at a new peak of No.52, formerly it made it to No.71, whilst another re-entry at No.63 is Shakira and “Try Everything” (HP-60, #34 DL) which returns due to the film ‘Zootopia’ being released on DVD and BR recently, and with school holiday just started in three states (Vic, Qld & NT) on Friday (24th June) and the rest of the country next week, it could climb next week. Alessia Cara is back up five to No.58 with “Wild Things” after the song was sung on The Voice last weekend and jumping back up sixteen spots to No.66 is M0 with her “Final Song” (HP-65), whilst the only new certification in the lower fifty is for the debut track for Zayn, “Pillowtalk”, which is down eight to No.72 and now 3x▲Platinum in sales. Three more songs re-enter this week, with Anne-Marie back in at No.78 with “Alarm” (former peak was #89); thanks to another Voice performance, “Chasing Cars” (HP-53) for Snow Patrol returns at No.92, which racks up its 70th week within the lower fifty (no higher) and Joel Adams sees his first entry “Please Don’t Go” (HP-65) back in at No.97, whilst Ed Sheeran retains the oldest charting song record this week, as “Thinking of You” is down six to No.90 in its 94th week on the chart.
The sixth EP for UK act Mumford & Sons becomes their first to chart here, as “Johannesburg” debuts at No.61 this week, featuring guest acts Baaba Maal, The Very Best and Beatneberg on its five tracks. Whilst a three-track EP for Disclosure entitled “Moog for Love” debuts at No.80 featuring guest artists Eats Everything and Al Green. The final entry at No.81 is the first chart song for Albanian Kosovar singer called Era Istrefi whose song “Bonbon” has so far been a big hit across Europe, going to the top in Bulgaria, whilst cracking the Top 10 in Germany, Israel and Lebanon.
