Australian Charts: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ‘Shallow’ Is the No 1 Song in Australia

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper hold the top of both charts this week, with their duet “Shallow” atop the ARIA Singles Chart for a second week, plus the song also holds at No.1 in both England (2nd wk) and Ireland (4th wk) and begins in New Zealand (1st wk).

While this is the fourth time in 2018 that the same act and album have held the top of both charts, this is the first time this year that it has been done for a second successive week, the last time a song and its parent album held for two or more weeks was from the 13th of March, 2017 with Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” (TW-63) and his third album “÷ (Divide)” (TW-10), which did so for seven broken weeks until the first week of May.

“Shallow” jumps from 14 to No.1 on the streaming sales chart and holds for a third week at the top of the digital chart, while the hold at the national summit also lifts Lady Gaga’s tally of weeks at No.1 during this decade to three weeks, placing her equal 26th on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: 20101’s; Singles’ alongside Calvin Harris, Major Lazer and MØ who have all had three weeks at the top from two No.1’s this decade. Also this is the first time since last December where a duet has topped the Australian Singles chart, the last one was “Perfect” for Ed Sheeran and Beyonce (from 11th of Dec, 2017) {I didn’t include “Psycho” for Post Malone feat Ty Dolla $ign as that was a guest appearance and not a duet).

The entire top four songs are on hold this week, with former No.1 “Shotgun” by George Ezra at No.2 and newly certified 3x▲Platinum in sales, Marshmello and Bastille with “Happier” are stable at No.3 for a third straight week and the No.1 streamed track for the past seven weeks and No.3 this week on that chart is “Eastside” for Benny Blanco with Halsey and Khalid at No.4. Climbing three spots to a new peak of No.5 and backing herself on the charts is Halsey and her new track “Without Me”, while Benny’s other featured artist in Khalid is also within the Top 10 again this week with “Better”, which is down three places to No.9.

Dean Lewis is down one spot to No.6 with his former chart topping song “Be Alright”, while last weeks second highest entry in “Sunflower” by Post Malone with Swae Lee jumps up six spots to land at a new peak of No.7, becoming the second Top 10 for Swae (he was on the French Montana song “Unforgettable” which peaked at No.7 in Sept. of 2017) and the sixth Top 10 placing for Post Malone. Loud Luxury are back up one place to No.8 with “Body” while the Calvin Harris and Sam Smith song “Promises” is down three spots to No.10.

* The entries last week for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper from the soundtrack to their film ‘A Star is Born’ all climb this week with “Always Remember us This Way” (18 to 12), “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” (32 to 15) which gives them three songs within the Top 20, “Maybe it’s Time” (64 to 58) and “Is That Alright?” (97 to 96), plus there is also a new entry from the album too (see below).
* Rebounding this week ten spots to No.24 is the Little Mix and Nicki Minaj track “Woman Like Me” (HP-23).
* Five of the six Top 100 entries for Post Malone rise this week, with the aforementioned “Sunflower” jumping into the Top 10 he is also up with “Better Now” (31 to 28), “Rockstar” (65 to 54), “I Fall Apart” (67 to 56) and “Psycho” (78 to 70).
