Justin Bieber continues to fulfil his chart comeback by remaining at the top of the ARIA Singles chart for a second week, as his track “Love Yourself” racks up another week at No.1.
Justin also climbs up the tally board for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: 2010’s, Singles’ by moving from equal 17th to equal 15th as he has now racked up six weeks at the top this decade, placing him equal with Pink and her six weeks from three No.1’s. Adele remains at No.2 after falling from the top spot last week with “Hello”, which was 3xP last week and is now 4x▲Platinum in sales, whilst the remainder of the top four songs are also stable this week, with Justin’s “Sorry” at No.3 again and sewn into the No.4 spot for a third straight week is Shawn Mendes with “Stitches”, which is newly crowned ▲Platinum in sales.
DJ Snake and Bipolar Sunshine climb a couple of places to a new peak of No.5 with “Middle” which pushes down two tracks a single spot, “Ocean Drive” by Duke Dumont and “Never Forget You” by Zara Larsson & MNEK to No.6 and No.7 respectively. Justin Bieber has the top three streaming tracks in the country again this week, and at No.3 is this week No.8 track, his first No.1 “What Do You Mean?” which climbs back up two places helped by that high streaming position. Rudimental and Ed Sheeran are back down one spot to No.9 with “Lay it All on Me” (now ▲Platinum) and after leaving the Top 10 last week for the first time, this week climbing back up two spots to land at No.10 is Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with “Downtown” which also scores a new certification in the process, it’s now 3x▲Platinum in sales.
UP: Last weeks No.11 debut for Sigala, “Sweet Love”, remains at its entry position this week but right behind it are three tracks which all jump into the Top 15. “Flip it” for Charlotte Devaney and Snoop Dogg halves its position from last week by jumping up twelve places to land at No.12, but an even bigger leap is by the new Weeknd track “In the Night” which is up twenty-eight places to a new peak of No.13, whilst up an impressive seventeen spots to a new chart height of No.14 is Rachel Platten with “Stand by You” which previously peaked at No.22 a month ago. WSTRN debuted at No.21 last week with “IN2” which this week rises three to land at No.18 and the new Weeknd track is also joined by the upward rise of his older and now Grammy nominated track “Can’t Feel My Face” which is back up four to No.24. Leaping into the Top 50 this week, up a massive thirty-six places to land at No.27 are Snakehips with Tinashe and Chance the Rapper on “All My Friends”, whilst also leaping up into the fifty are “Ex’s & Oh’s” for Elle King (84 to 33), “The Girl is Mine” by 99 Souls with Destiny’s Child and Brandy (56 to 35) and “Here” by Alessia Cara (52 to 42).

Also back into the Top 50 are “Uptown Funk” for Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars (53 to 45) and “How Deep is Your Love” by Calvin Harris (51 to 48) which he performed on Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Tonight Show’ earlier in the week.
DOWN: The only dropout from the Top 10 is last weeks highest new entry, “Higher” for The Hilltop Hoods feat James Chatburn, which falls eleven spots to No.20 this week. “Dessert” for Dawin, “Sugar” for Robin Schulz and “Who You Lovin’” (now Gold (●) in sales) all leave the Top 20 this week by dropping four places each to No.21, No.22 and No.23 respectively. “Stone” by Cyrus is only down three to No.25 as his album goes Top 10 this week and falling twelve spots to No.32 are Coldplay with “Adventure of a Lifetime” whilst “On My Mind” for Ellie Goulding is down seven to No.37. Also down seven is Justin Bieber with “I’ll Show You” to No.41 and dropping eleven spots to No.44 is Ariana Grande with “Focus” whilst “Locked Away” for R. City is down six to No.46.

Lower 50: There are plenty of tracks climbing into the Top 50 this week, but no debuts as such, but in the lower fifty “Trap Queen” for Fetty Wap is back up fourteen places to No.60, ZHU, Skrillex & THEY rise back up seven to No.61 with “Working for it” and LDRU with Paige IV and “Keeping Score” is up twelve places to No.65. “Cheerleader” for OMI leaps back up twenty-five spots to No.71 and “Do You Remember” by Jarryd James fell hard last week, but is back up nineteen to No.73 this week. Other former big tracks which climb back up this week include “Take Me to Church” for Hozier (94 to 86) and “Love Me Like You Do” for Ellie Goulding (99 to 89) whilst the only returning track to the chart this week comes in at #100, “King Kunta” (HP-33) for Kendrick Lamar.
So the highest new entry for the week comes in at No.77 and is the latest track by Charlie Puth entitled “One Call Away” which features rapper Tyga. The song is taken from his forthcoming late January 2016 debut album “Nine Track Mind” which will also feature his previous big hit “Marvin Gaye”.
21 year old London based producer Jonas Blue enters at No.82 with his cover of “Fast Car”, the Tracy Chapman song which made it to No.4 in late June, 1988. He discovered the vocalist Dakota singing in the basement of an East London pub and the next day recorded her vocals for the track. Back in October local singer Matt Corby hit No.45 with the track “Monday” which is the first single released from his mid-March 2016 due debut album “Telluric”, and this week the second song from that set debuts at No.93 entitled “Sooth Lady Wine”.
Local rapper Urthboy debuts at No.95 with vocals from Bertie Blackman on the track “Long Loud Hours”, and this is his first singles chart entry and the first taste of his forthcoming (not date or title known as yet) fifth studio album. The final entry at No.99 is Chris Brown with “Back to Sleep” which is taken from his just released (as of Friday) seventh studio album “Royalty”.
