Avicii Remains Top Of ARIA Singles Chart

Avicii cements his place at the top of the ARIA Singles chart for a second week with his track “Wake Me Up”.

The song is now Platinum (▲) in sales, but knocking on his back door are OneRepublic with “Counting Stars” (now Gold ●), which is up one place to No.2 this week pushing former No.1 “Blurred Lines” for Robin Thicke down to No.3 this week.

Miley Cyrus lands her highest charting single in Australia this week as her latest track “We Can’t Stop” is up a place to No.4 (“The Climb” was her previous best effort reaching No.5 in mid-June of 2009). And P!nk lands her 22nd Top 10 single by jumping up eight places to No.5 with “True Love”, helped by her current national tour, plus the song achieves a Gold (●) sales certification. And as Lily Allen is guest vocalist on the track it also becomes her third Top 10 entry in Australia.

On July 25th the Stephenie Meyers (Twilight series) penned film ‘The Host’ will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray, and as I discovered this week, the Imagine Dragons’ track “Radioactive” is in the end credits, so the climb to a new peak of No.6 this week could be a stepping stone to higher chart placing by the end of the month. “Parachute” for Timomatic is down three places to No.7, Olly Murs holds at No.8 with “Dear Darlin” and “Wild” for Jessie J and Big Sean falls three places to No.9, all three tracks now certified Platinum (▲), and rounding out the Top 10 and holding at No.10 this week is “Resolution” for Matt Corby.

NEW PEAKS & MOVERS: Lorde blasts up twelve places to a new peak of No.14 with her EP “The Love Club”, and up seven places to No.17 is Vance Joy with “Riptide”. The self-titled EP for “Sheppard” (featuring “Let Me Down Easy”) is up a place to a new peak of No.18 and jumping up eight places to No.20 are Naughty Boy and Sam Smith with “La La La”. “Classic” for MKTO is up nine spots to No.25 whilst John Newman’s “Love Me Again” is also up nine to a new peak of No.31. Sebastian Ingrosoo takes “Reload” up two places to No.33 and The Arctic Monkeys jump twelve places to a new chart height of No.37 with “Do I Wanna Know?” and also joining the Top 40 are Zedd and Foxes with “Clarity”, up seven spots to No.38.

DOWN DOWN: After debuting at No.9 last week, Samantha Jade’s “Firestarter” is down three places to No.12, but with new series of The X Factor starting soon, and it being used in the shows promos, it could be back up again soon. “Come with Me” for Ricky Martin is down seven places to No.28 whilst Paramore pick up a 2x▲ for “Still Into You” as it falls six spots to No.43 this week. “Heart Hypnotic” for Delta Goodrem tumbles fourteen places to No.45 but the biggest drop goes to Jason Mraz and “I Won’t Give Up” which is down forty one places to No.71 after returning thanks to the ‘Packed to the Rafters’ finale two weeks ago.

Returning #29 – Fall Down – Will.i.am feat Miley Cyrus

Returning to the Top 100 at No.29 for Will.i.am and Miley Cyrus (HP-47, May 2013) is “Fall Down”, which initially charted when Will’s album “#Willpower” came out back in May and is now officially the third single from his album. The previous two were “Scream & Shout” with Britney Spears (HP-2) and then “#ThatPower” with Justin Bieber (HP-6) which is at No.49 this week.

Lower 50: Bliss N’ Eso leap up twenty-seven places to No.51 with “Act Yo Age”, and after two weeks at No.64, Selena Gomez is up five places to a new peak of No.59 with “Come & Get it”. Grouplove climb fourteen places to a new chart height of No.60 with their latest “Ways to Go” and Icona Pop jump back up twenty-two places to No.64 with “I Love it”, helped by the recent No.1 placing in the UK and the new car advertisement it is featured on here in Australia. “Hey Now” (HP-71) for Martin Solveig jumps back up fourteen places to No.79 and returning to the Top 100 are Imagine Dragons with “It’s Time” (HP-27) at No.96 and “Southern Sun” (HP-63) for Boy & Bear at No.99.

Jay-Z debuts with his new album “Magna Carta… Holy Grail” at No.2 this week, and the lead single from the album entitled “Holy Grail” comes in at No.54 featuring Justin Timberlake as guest vocalist, with JT also debuting at No.63 with his new single from “The 20/20 Experience (Part 1)” {as it’s now going to be renamed} “Tunnel Vision”. The last new entry comes in at No.72, “Burn” for Ellie Goulding, becoming her third chart entry in Australia after “Anything Could Happen” (HP-20) and as guest vocalist on the Calvin Harris track “I Need Your Love” (HP-3, TW-42).
