Gnash and Olivia O’Brien barely hold onto the top spot on the ARIA Singles chart for a second week with the now Gold (●) selling track “I Hate U, I Love U”.
The Hate & Love track jumps up from 32 to 19 on the streaming chart, but falls to No.2 on the digital charts, but it has more overall points than this weeks No.2 national chart entry, Pink with “Just Like Fire” (#1 DL/#41 Str), taken from the forthcoming film ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’, the second Tim Burton produced Wonderland film. The new Pink track becomes her 35th Top 100, 33rd Top 50 and 23rd Top 10 entry, plus her sixteenth track to debut within the Top 10 and fourth to enter within the Top 3.
The Chainsmokers and Daya hold at No.3 for a second week with “Don’t Let Me Down” (#6 DL/ #2 Str), former No.1 “7 Years” (#5 DL/#5 Str) for Lukas Graham is back up one spot to No.4 and after four straight weeks at No.2, “Faded” (#8 DL/#4 Str) by Alan Walker falls three places to No.5, and with “Work from Home” (DL #9/ #1 Str) by Fifth Harmony down two to No.6 it means that Lukas, Alan and 5th are all back to back again like they were for three weeks from late March.
Dua Lipa leaps up twenty-one places to land at No.7 this week with “Be the One” (#3 DL/#32 Str), making Australia the fifth country in the world to make it a Top 10 hit; the song having been at No.1 in Belgium (1 wk) and Bulgaria (5 wks), plus it’s currently within the ten in The Netherlands (#5). Disturbed are down one spot to No.8 with their cover of the Simon & Garfunkel 1966 song “The Sound of Silence” (#4 DL) and falling three is Mike Posner and “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” (#7 DL/#6 Str), whilst the third and final entry to the Top 10 this week sees the current UK No.1 single for Drake with Wizkid and Kyla entitled “One Dance” (#12 DL/#3 debut Str) climb five spots to a new peak of No.10, becoming the fifth Top 10 entry for Drake, his last being on the current Rihanna track “Work” (TW-26, #33 DL/#11 Str).
UP: Tinie Tempah and Zara Larsson climb two places to a new peak of No.15 with “Girls Like” (#11 DL/#26 Str) and also up two and climbing into the twenty is Little Mix with Jason DeRulo on their “Secret Love Song” (#15 DL/#35 Str) landing at No.20 this week. Broods climb two places again this week to No.30 with “Free” (#21 DL/#47 Str) whilst jumping up fifteen to No.32 is current US Top 5 hit “Panda” (#34 DL/#18 Str) by Desiigner and “Close” (#36 DL/#7 Str) by Nick Jonas and Tove Lo rises twelve to No.37. Jason DeRulo has two Top 40 hits this week, as his new single “If it Ain’t Love” (#25 DL) leaps up twenty-five spots to land a new peak of No.34 and also jumping into the Top 50 this week are Luke Christopher and “Lot to Learn” (71 to 39, #27 DL), “Jumpman” by Future and Drake (72 to 47, #46 DL), Rihanna with “Kiss it Better” (52 to 48, #43 DL) and landing their first solo Top 50 entry are DNCE (they were on the recent Hailee Steinfeld track “Rock Bottom”) with “Cake by the Ocean” (63 to 50, #50 DL), meaning we have two Jonas brothers within the fifty this week, as Joe Jonas is the lead singer of DNCE.
DOWN: “Cheap Thrills” (HP-5, WI10-5, #14 DL/#8 Str) by Sia is down three to No.11, plus the song is No.2 in the UK for a third straight week and currently at No.1 in Ireland, Bulgaria (both 3 wks), Portugal (2 wks) and Sweden (1 wk), and also down three to No.12 is “No” (HP-9×2, WI10-2, #10 DL/#13 Str) by Meghan Trainor which could go back up next week after her Graham Norton performance screened here on Friday (22nd April), whilst another track that could also go back up next week thanks to their tour starting here are twenty one pilots with “Stressed Out” (HP-2, WI10-9, #16 DL/#16 Str) which is down four to No.14. “My House” (#19 DL/#21 Str) by Flo Rida drops five to No.17 and Daya drops six to No.19 with “Hide Away” (#20 DL/#12 Str) and also down six to No.29 is Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with “Dance off” (#32 DL).

Another act set to release another album soon is local group The Temper Trap with the set to be called “Thick as Thieves” (due 10th of June), and the title track made it to No.92 back in late March, and now the second song from the new set debuts at No.72 called “Fall Together”, which becomes the bands seventh Top 100 entry. Two of Australia’s biggest metalcore acts in Northlane and In Hearts Wake have teamed up for the “Equinox (EP)”, which comes in at No.75 this week becoming the highest (of three) chart entries for Northlane and the first singles chart placing for In Hearts Wake.
The second of four entries in a row by multiple acts sees the teaming of Ariana Grande with Lil’ Wayne on her new song “Let Me Love You” taken from her May 20th due third album “Dangerous Woman” and then two places lower at No.90 we see Disciples and David Guetta join forces for the dance track “No Worries” and finally coming in at No.97 are rapper Future and singer/rapper The Weeknd on “Low Life”, giving Future two entries in the chart this week, the other is the Drake teaming on “Jumpman” which does what it says, and jumps up to No.47 this week.
