Six straight weeks at No.1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz in their “Thrift Shop”.



Also back up the chart is his other current single “Same Love”, jumping up twenty-four places to a new peak of No.39, whilst Mack also bullets up fifteen places to No.8 on the ARIA Albums Chart with his album “The Heist”.

“Scream and Shout” is at No.2 for a fourth week for and Britney Spears, but jumping up four places to a new peak of No.3 are Icona Pop with “I Love it”. The girls from Sweden were in the country last week, and their song is being used in some of the cricket ads on TV. Another bunch of Swede’s climb back up a place to No.4, the Swedish House Mafia with “Don’t You Worry Child”, and the guys will be in the country in February, this track swapping places with Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble”, down to No.5 this week.

PSY’s “Gangnam Style” rebound from last week falls three places to No.6 this week, whilst Olly Murs and Flo Rida are down a place to No.7 with “Troublemaker”; the track now certified Platinum in sales. Bruno Mars holds at No.8 with “Locked out of Heaven”, with his parent album jumping up to No.3 this week. Swapping nine and ten around this week are Of Monsters and Men with “Little Talks” up to No.9, forcing Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj down a place to No.10 with “Beauty and a Beat”.

NEW PEAKS & MOVERS: The Lumineers leap up ten places to No.12 with “Ho Hey”, right behind Justice Crew holding at No.13 with “Best Night”, now with sales for Platinum. Samantha Jade climbs back up one place to No.16 with “What You’ve Done to Me”, having now sold 2xPlatinum, whilst returning to the Top 20, up eleven places to No.18 is Bruno Mars with “When I Was Your Man”, right behind him at a new peak of No.19, and up eight places, are Rudimental with their second single “Not Giving in”.

Pink is back up five places to No.30 with “Try” (HP-6×2), maybe helped by her appearance on the Graham Norton show on New Years Eve.

As I mentioned at the start, Macklemore jumps back up twenty-four places to No.39 with “Same Love”, it’s former peak was No.42, and jumping up twenty-eight places to No.40 is Flo Rida with “Let it Roll”, one of five Flo tracks in the Top 60 this week.

DOWN DOWN: After jumping back up to No.11 last week, Guy Sebastian’s “Battle Scars” drops six places to No.17 this week, but he has two tracks in the Top 20, as “Get Along” is down four spots to No.20. Ke$ha falls out of the Top 20 with “Die Young”, but gains a new sales certification by it selling now 3xPlatinum.

Little Mix drop six places to No.26 with “Wings” which is now 2xPlatinum in sales, and scoring a fourth Platinum sales certification are The Script with on “Hall of Fame”, down five places to No.28, with their other charting song “Six Degrees of Separation” now certified Gold in sales and sitting at No.51 this week. “Call Me Maybe” for Carly Rae Jepsen falls back six places to No.37 after leaping back into the Top 50 at No.31 last week, and only down three places to No.46 are One Direction with “Live While We’re Young”, now certified 2xPlatinum in sales. The big drop-out of the week though is Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You”, which departs from No.41 after two weeks back in the Top 100.

Lower 50: Otto Knows takes his track “Million Voices” (HP-46) back up seven places to No.53, but up nine places to a new peak of No.62 is Ricki-Lee with “Burn it Down” (she performed it on the Channel 9 NYE concert). Rising back up twenty-three places to No.63 is the first Rudimental single “Feel the Love” (HP-3), and back up eight places to No.68 is Gotye and Kimbra with “Somebody That I Used to Know”, in its 78th week inside the Top 100. Jumping back up seventeen places to No.72 are The Wanted with “Chasing the Sun” (HP-18), whilst “Moves like Jagger” (HP-2×10) for Maroon 5 jumps up eighteen places to No.76. Rihanna rises nineteen places to a new peak of No.79 with “Stay”

There are ten songs returning to the Top 100 this week, first back in at No.58 are David Guetta and Sia with “Titanium” (HP-5) {thanks to Pitch Perfect; they sing it in the film, but it’s not on the soundtrack}, then back in at No.74 are Neon Trees with “Everybody Talks”, scoring a new peak, as it originally hit No.76 back in mid-November of 2012 when it charted for a single week. Skrillex returns at No.78 with “Make it Bun Dem” (HP-27), and the ‘Pitch Perfect’ (TW-17) cast return with their two former entries, “Bella’s Final Medley” (HP-74) at No.82 and the “Riff Off Medley” (HP-82) is back in at No.99. Also the only new entry of the week comes from the ‘Pitch Perfect’ soundtrack, with star Anna Kendrick debuting at No.95 with “Cups (When I’m Gone)”.

Guns N’ Roses return to the ARIA Singles chart with “Sweet Child O’ Mine” (HP-11) at No.90, and The Black Keys are back in at No.94 with “Lonely Boy” (HP-2). Fun see “Carry On” (HP-44) back in at No.96, Katy Perry has the New Years theme “Fireworks” returning at No.97 and Ellie Goulding re-enters at No.98 with “Anything Could Happen” (HP-20).
