Australian Charts: Fonsi Stays At No 1 For Second Week On ARIA Singles

For a second week at No.1 in Australia are Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber with their worldwide chart-topping track “Despacito”.

“Despacito” is now at the top in the USA, Canada, England, Ireland, New Zealand and here, only the fourteenth time that all six charts have had the same No.1 in the same week (“Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran was the last time all six matched), and by staying at the top here for a second week, it moves Justin Bieber’s tally of weeks at No.1 to seventeen weeks in total, moving him from equal fifth to now outright fifth on the list for ‘Acccumulated Weeks at No.1: 2010’s; Singles’, as he sits two weeks behind the next act on that list, LMFAO with 19 weeks. On the similar listing for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: 1940 to 2017; Singles’, JB is now equal fortieth alongside Pink (8 No.1’s), The Platters and Ke$ha (3 No.1’s each) who have all racked up seventeen weeks at the top in Australia.

Justin is also at No.2 again this week with his appearance on the DJ Khaled track “I’m the One” with the rappers Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil’ Wayne, plus its a stable Top 3 this week, as last weeks highest entry for Miley Cyrus and “Malibu” stays at No.3 for a second week. It must be noticed too that the Top 9 songs almost all stay in place this week, the only changes are up next at No.4 and No.5, swapping places from last week, with “Galway Girl” for Ed Sheeran back up one to No.4 and down a spot to No.5 is Harry Styles’ “Sign of the Times”. The next four tracks are all in the same place as last week, “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran at No.6, “Humble.” for Kendrick Lamar at No.7, Shawn Mendes’ “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” at No.8 and then at No.9 are Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson with “Symphony”. Three weeks ago Niall Horan debuted at No.11 with his second chart entry “Slow Hands”, which fell to No.17 last week, and now this week it rebounds back up seven places to land at a new peak of No.10, becoming the former 1D’s second Top 10 single here after “This Town” debuted and peaked at No.5 in October of 2016, PLUS we also have Harry Styles within the Top 10, the first time that two of the members of One Direction have been in the ten at the same time, more feats/chart records from the band later in this article too.

* Charlie Puth lands his fifth Top 20 hit this week (from 5 entries) as his current entry “Attention” jumps up eleven places to land at a new peak of No.19, all his previous four entries cracked the Top 10 too.

* Jonas Blue is up ten places to No.29 with his now third Top 30 and fourth Top 40 hit “Mama” which features guest vocals by former The Collective singer William Singe, his second chart entry, as he previously did guest vocals on the Bella Ferraro track “Forget You” (HP-75, late Oct 2013).

* Lord Huron is back up ten places to No.84 with their first entry “The Night We Met”, and also rising back up is Drake with “One Dance”, up eleven to No.88.

* The only song leaving the Top 10 this week does-so after having debuted within the ten thirteen weeks ago, “Something Just Like This” (HP-2×3, WI10-12) by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay, which is down two spots to No.12.
* After peaking at No.12 last week, the Dean Lewis track “Waves” retreats four places to No.16.
* Ed Sheeran’s “Castle on the Hill” leaves the Top 20 for the first time in its twenty chart weeks, down four to No.22.
* Also leaving the twenty for the first time after eleven weeks within, is the Lorde single “Green Light”, which reduces eight chart places to land at No.24.
* Calvin Harris sees his three chart entries all move down this week, the first is “Slide”, down seven to No.28, followed by last weeks new entry in “Rollin'” which is also down seven places, to No.47, and his third drop is for “Heatstroke”, which whilts nineteen spots to No.65, but is now certified Gold (●) in sales.

* Two of the four Kendrick Lamar tracks drop this week, with “DNA” down eight to No.42 and then “Loyalty” reduces nineteen chart rungs to No.75, whilst “Humble” and “Love” stay stable at No.7 and No.50 respectively.
* After scoring a new peak at No.37 last week, the Post Malonen track “Congratulations” drops back down this week seven spots to No.44.

* James Arthur drops eleven spots to No.59 with “Say You Won’t Let Go”.
* Both Amy Shark entries tumble this week, with “Adore” down fourteen to No.66 and her second track “Weekends” falling thirteen places to No.78.
* Ed Sheeran still has the Longest Charted track in ARIA history this week, as “Thinking Out Loud” drops six to No.80 in its 128th week within the Top 100.
* Maroon 5 are at #100 on the Albums chart, and now No.99 on the singles chart with “Cold”, which plummets dramatically forty-five places this week.

* #11 – Strip That Down by Liam Payne feat Quavo is the debut single for the final member of One Direction to hit the charts, plus we also have Harry and Niall within the Top 10 this week, and Zayn is down at No.52 (Still Got Time) and No.62 (with Taylor Swift duet), giving us six songs from the bands former members within the Top 100 this week, a new record and an equal record at the same time for the Australian charts. Firstly the new record is ‘Most Songs from one group’s members within the Top 100′, beating the previous record held by The Beatles who did it twice with one song apiece in early 1971 and again in late 1974, so that’s the other record they beat too, The Beatles’ members only had one song apiece within the Top 100 (and for two {1971} and one week {1974} at that time), now the boys from 1D have six songs in total within the hundred this week alone. I also checked other acts with multiple charting members like Take That (two at one time), Spice Girls (two separate occassions where three members were on the chart at the same time), New Edition (3 members), and both members of Wham! (1990) and Simon & Garfunkel (1973 & 1975) have done it, whilst members of Eurythmics and The Fugees did not ({if anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know}.

* #13 – Bad Liar by Selena Gomez is the second Top 20 entry this week for the US pop singer, as her teaming with Kygo and “It Ain’t Me” (HP-4) is down four to No.17 this week, and overall this becomes her seventeenth Top 100 entry and by debuting so high it becomes her highest (solo) chart entry, as her Kygo teaming debuted at No.9 back in late February, and this is her fifth Top 20 hit too.

* #37 – Swish Swish by Katy Perry feat Nicki Minaj is the third single to be issued from her “Witness” album due in a couple of weeks, following on from “Bon Appetit” (TW/HP-35) and “Chained to the Rhythm” (HP-4, TW-70), this new one becoming her 24th Top 100 entry.

* #45 – Crying in the Club by Camila Cabello is the first solo single and third chart entry for the former Fifth Harmony member, who previously cracked the Top 50 on duets “I Know What You Did Last Summer” (HP-33) with Shawn Mendes and “Bad Things” with Machine Gun Kelly (HP-22), and she did her first performance of this song at the ‘Billboard Music Awards’ this past week, and this track is taken from her September due debut album “The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving’.

* #68 – Tired by Alan Walker feat Gavin James is the second entry for the Norwegian producer and DJ, following on from last years “Faded” (HP-2×5, peaked March-April 2016), and the first entry for the Irish singer-songwriter Gavin James.

* #72 – The Way I Are (Dance with Somebody) by Bebe Rexha feat Lil’ Wayne is the ninth chart entry for Bebe and the first from her forthcoming album “All Your Fault: Pt.2” (no date known).
