Australian Charts: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ‘Shallow’ Is No 1

Leaping up sixteen places to land at No.1 this week is the lead single from the film soundtrack to ‘A Star is Born’ in “Shallow” for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, becoming Gaga’s fourth chart-topping single in Australia, the song also at the top in England (1st wk) and Ireland (3rd wk).

“Shallow” becomes the 1079th No.1 Single in Australia (1940 to 2018), the 514th for ARIA (1983 to 2018), the 34th No.1 single for her record label Interscope (and their first since “The Monster” for Eminem and Rihanna back in mid-November of 2013), with the song the No.1 digital selling track, while it debuts at No.14 on the streaming chart. This is the first time at the top for actor Bradley Cooper, with the last actor topping our charts being almost six years ago when Samantha Jade took her post X-Factor single “What You’ve Done to Me” (26-Nov, 2012, she was previously in the TV series ‘Beneath the Blue’ in 2010 alongside future ‘Vampire Diaries’ star Paul Wesley, alternately the previous actor at the top could’ve been Robin Thicke {13-May, 2013} who starred a few times in his father’s series ‘Growing Pains’ in late 1980’s {Alan Thicke was his father]).

This is the first time that the word ‘Shallow’ has appeared in a No.1 single title, and as I mentioned this is the fourth No.1 in Australia for Lady Gaga, who first hit the top over ten years ago with “Just Dance” (15-Sept, 2008, 1 wk) followed by “Poker Face” (8 weeks from 17-Nov, 2008) and her last appearance at the top was with “Born This Way” (1 wk on 21st Feb, 2011), which now gives her two weeks at the top during this decade, which puts her onto the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Singles; 2010’s’ at No.29, and with this becoming her fourth No.1 here she now ties with other acts who’ve racked up four chart-topppers such as Drake, Ed Sheeran, Macklemore, Flo Rida, Bryan Adams, Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, John Farnham, Johnny O’Keefe and Petula Clark, who like Gaga has also notched up eleven accumulated weeks at No.1 with her four summit-sitters.

Bradley Cooper becomes the 192nd American Male Performer/Singer to have a No.1 single here and this becomes the 692nd song performed by an America act (solo, duo or group) and the fourth for 2018 after Ariana Grande (April), Post Malone and Childish Gambino (both in May), and with the soundtrack for ‘A Star is Born’ taking over the top spot on the albums chart it becomes the 129th time that the same act(s) have occupied the top of both charts and the fourth time this year after Ed Sheeran (1st of Jan), Post Malone (7th of May) and 5 Seconds of Summer (25th of June), while it’s the 20th time that a soundtrack and its single have held the top of both charts, the last time this occurred was back in February and March of 2015 with the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ soundtrack and its lead single “Love Me Like You Do” for Ellie Goulding (3 weeks shared at the top).

After five weeks at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart the George Ezra track “Shotgun” is down one spot to No.2, while holding for a fourth week at the summit in New Zealand, and then Marshmello and Bastille hold at their peak of No.3 for a second week with “Happier”. The No.1 streamed track again is the Benny Blanco with Halsey and Khalid track “Eastside”, which after eight weeks at No.2 drops down two places to No.4, while the songs guest vocalists climb to new peaks within the Top 10, Khalid and “Better” rises three spots to No.6 thanks to his new EP debuting within the Top 10 albums, and Halsey singing “Without Me” is up two spots to No.8.

Former No.1 “Be Alright” for Dean Lewis is down one spot to No.5, while the Calvin Harris and Sam Smith’s “Promises” drops two spots to No.7 this week. Also sliding two places is “Body” for Loud Luxury, down to No.9 and the highest new entry of the week occurs at No.10, with Billie Eilish and “When the Party’s Over”, instantly becoming her second Top 10 single and fourth chart entry, as she hit No.5 in early July with “Lovely” alongside Khalid (TW-53), which spent a single week within the Top 10.
