Adele holds for a second week with her second No.1 single in Australia “Hello” which after two weeks of sales has gone from Gold last week to Platinum this week.

“Hello” also helps Adele to notch up her ninth overall week at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart, moving her from equal twelfth to now equal ninth on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: 2010’s’ alongside the nine weeks that Taylor Swift (from 3 #1’s) and Eminem (2 #1’s) have also notched up so far this decade.

The other song that debuted high last week “Sorry” by Justin Bieber, holds at its No.2 debut and is now certified Gold (●) in sales and is the No.1 streamed song in the country this week, whilst Justin’s former No.1 “What Do You Mean?” slips down three places to No.9 and is newly crowned 2x▲Platinum in sales, whilst the same sales level has now been achieved by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with “Downtown”, which rises back up two places to No.3 this week, whilst holding at No.4 and now ▲Platinum is The Weeknd with “The Hills”.

The first of two new songs within the Top 10 this week is “Ocean Drive” by Duke Dumont who climbs five places to No.8 and this gives him his first ever Top 10 single in Australia, whilst debuting at No.10 is the lead single from the forthcoming third album for pop singer Ariana Grande, the album is titled ‘Moonlight’ and the track “Focus” becomes her fourth Top 10 single in Australia and it is also her third song to debut within the Top 10.

UP: Holding at No.11 for a fourth straight week is LunchMoney Lewis with “Whip it!” which ties the ARIA record for most weeks at No.11, alongside “I Drove all Night” by Cyndi Lauper (1989) and “Hey Lover” by LL Cool (1996) {BTW: the pre-ARIA record is six weeks at #11}.

Ahead of his new album coming out next week, Justin Bieber has issued a third track entitled “I’ll Show You”, which debuts at No.29 this week, whilst a few places lower at No.33 is the third teaming for David Guetta and Sia, this one featuring rapper Fetty Wap on the track “Bang My Head”, which follows on from “She Wolf (Falling to Pieces)” (HP-11, peaked early Sept 2012) and their first “Titanium” (HP-5, peaked early Sept 2011).

Rachel Platten was in the country last week on promo tour, and performed on the X-Factor this past week too singing her new track “Stand By You”, which comes in at No.41 this week, whilst her first entry “Fight Song” (HP-2) jumps back up eighteen places to No.56 too. The final entry to this week fifty is at No.50, “Touch” by Pia Mia which is the follow-up to her August No.5 single “Do it Again” which is holding at No.53 this week.

Lower 50: Scoring a new ▲Platinum certification in the lower fifty this week are “Photograph” for Ed Sheeran at No.59 and “Ghost Town” by Adam Lambert at No.64 (both 2x▲), “See You Again” for Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth at No.67 (5x) and “Shake it Off” for Taylor Swift, back up eight to No.74 and now 7x, whilst the only Gold (●) certification lower down goes to Sigala with “Easy Love” down ten to No.69. Sam Smith performed his Bond theme “Writings on the Wall” on last weeks Graham Norton, and ahead of the films release here the track is back up thirty-seven places to No.61 this week, whilst two artists who also performed on X-Factor this week and were in the country on promo tours see their older track rises this week, Aston Merrygold with “Get Stupid” up twenty-two places to No.63 and Hozier with “Take Me to Church”, back up nine to No.66. Meghan Trainor is up four places to a new peak of No.76 with “Better When I’m Dancin’”, which should jump once the ‘Peanuts’ movie opens and jumping up ten to a new height of No.84 is Alessia Cara with “Here”.

Nathaniel sees his seventh Top 100 singles chart entry this week, as the ballad “Always Be Yours” debuts at No.79, which is taken from his debut album “Yours” which fell to No.45 this week, plus he also performed this song on X-Factor two weeks ago. Ellie Goulding released her third album ‘Delirium’ on Friday and another track from the album enters this week (she’s had one enter for the past three weeks now), entitled “Army” which comes in at No.87 this week.

Australian teenager and singer Kita Alexander lands her second Top 100 singles chart entry this week by debuting at No.90 with the track “Like You Want to”, which surpasses the No.95 peak that her early August entry “My Own Way” achieved. And finally new at No.99 is Kygo with “Here For You” which features the vocals of Ella Henderson and this is his fourth Top 100 entry for 2015.
