5 Seconds of Summer log a fifth straight week at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart with “Youngblood”, while the song holds for a third week in New Zealand and their same-titled album debuts at the top of the LP charts too.
“Youngblood” the song and the album become the third time this year that the same artist has held the top of both ARIA charts (and the 128th time all up), back on January 1st it was Ed Sheeran with “Perfect” and his “÷ (Divide)” album, while on May 7th Post Malone dominated both charts with “Psycho” and his album “Beerbongs & Bentleys”, both for one week. The last Australian act to do this was Gotye back on the 29th of August in 2011 (the only other Oz act this decade to do this), with his song “Somebody That I Used to Know” and his album “Making Mirrors” (1 wk). The first local act to achieve this feat were Daddy Cool on the 30th of August in 1971 with “Eagle Rock” and the album “Daddy Who? Daddy Cool” (1 wk) and overall 5SOS becomes the 19th Australian act to hold the top of both charts, including such acts as Skyhooks, Sherbet, Men at Work, Moving Pictures, John Farnham (twice), Icehouse, Ratcat, Savage Garden, Kasey Chambers, Delta Goodrem (twice), and Guy Sebastian amongst them.
The song “Youngblood” not only holds at the top in New Zealand, but it is up to No.4 in Norway, No.5 in Ireland, No.8 in Denmark and now No.13 in England, while this week four years ago the boys were scoring their second No.1 song in both New Zealand and Ireland with “Don’t Stop” (20th of June, 2014, 1 wk apiece), and with this now being the band’s sixth overall week at No.1 in Australia they move up to outright 20th on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Singles; 2010’s’, one week shy of the seven racked up by John Legend.
The current Canadian No.1 song for a second week is “Girls Like You” for Maroon 5 feat Cardi B., which here is up one spot to a new peak of No.2, becoming the groups fifth Top 2 single and their first since 2012’s “One More Night” (2 weeks in August 2012), while the song swaps places with the six weeks running No.2 track “Better Now” for Post Malone which is down one to No.4. Last week Anne-Marie returned to the Top 10 with her latest track “2002”, which this week halves its position by climbing four places to a new peak of No.4 and back up two spots to No.5 is the former No.1 for Ariana Grande and “No Tears to Cry”, possibly boosted by her two duet debuts this week (both enter within the Top 40). Those two rises push back down two places each the Selena Gomez song “Back to You” and “One Kiss” for Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa to No.6 and No.7 respectively.
This past week the 20 year old rapper XXXTentation was gunned down in Florida, and this has helped his late March No.9 single “Sad!” to rebound fifty places to land at a new peak of No.8, while this is followed by a three place drop to No.9 for the Amy Shark single “I Said Hi”, while down one place to No.10 is the Khalid and Normani duet “Love Lies” from the MTV Movie Awards winning movie “Love, Simon”.
