Holding for a sixth straight week at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart is Justin Bieber and “Love Yourself”, which also notches up 2x▲Platinum in sales this week too.

Like this time last year when Mark & Bruno straddled the two years with a six week run for “Uptown Funk” (3 weeks in 2014, 3 in 2015), there has only been two songs during the past year that has also notched up six weeks at No.1, “See You Again” for Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth (April-May 2015) and more recently Adele with “Hello” (Nov 2015). Plus Justin moves up into the Top 10 on the list for ‘Most Weeks at No.1: Singles, 2010’s’ having now racked up ten weeks at the top of the Australian Singles chart; as he is now equal ninth alongside Bruno Mars who has also spent ten weeks at the top, albeit with three No.1’s this decade (so far).

After re-peaking last week at No.4, this week Jonas Blue and Dakota jump up two places to a new peak of No.2 with their tropical house version of “Fast Car”, which also picks up a Gold (●) sales certification too, plus this new version beats the peak of the original by Tracy Chapman (TW-55), as it too reached No.4 in 1988, whilst there is a third version charting just outside of the Top 20. Also scoring Gold (●) this week are Snakehips with Tinashe and Chance the Rapper, as their collaboration “All My Friends” jumps up three places to land a new chart height of No.3.

Justin Bieber also achieves 2x▲Platinum with his other Top 5 single this week “Sorry” which is down one place to No.4 this week, whilst his label-mate (both on Def Jam) Shawn Mendes is at No.5 again with his former No.4 (for four weeks) single “Stitches”. Tumbling down to its lowest chart position so far is Adele with “Hello”, which drops four spots to No.6 after which there are two more new peaks in the Top 10. Elle King and her “Ex’s & Oh’s” are up one spot to No.7 and landing her second entry to the Top 10 is Zara Larsson, as her second release here “Lush Life” leaps up seven places to land a new peak of No.8. DJ Snake and Bipolar Sunshine drop two places to No.9 with “Middle”, which is now Gold (●) in sales, and holding for fourth week at No.10 is “IN2” by WSTRN, which is now the third song to spend that long at the ten position after “La La” (2004) by Ashlee Simpson and then “Don’t You Wanna Feel” (Oct 2007) for the Rogue Traders with both tracks debuting and staying at the #10 spot for its first four weeks on the chart. (The pre-ARIA #10-hold winner goes to “Tell Laura I Love Her” by Ray Peterson {peaked all through August 1960} which stayed at No.10 for five broken weeks, but a further record has been set my the Eminem track “Not Afraid” which racked up eight broken weeks at No.10, but prior to that it had notched up two weeks at a peak of No.4).

UP: Alessia Cara jumps up seven places to land a new peak at No.12 with “Here” which Rachel Platten leaps back into the Top 20, up ten spots to No.16 with “Stand by You” (HP-14) and Troye Sivan scores his second ever Top 20 hit this week as “Youth” is up five places to No.18 (“Happy Little Pill” in late August 2014 made it to #10). Helped by their recent Falls Festival shows, The Hilltop Hoods climb back up five spots to No.19 with “Higher” (HP-9), plus the track achieves Gold (●) in sales this week, after which the pop version of “Fast Car” by Sweden’s Tobtok and River and the new Charlie Puth song “One Call Away” both jump up twelve places each to new peaks of No.21 and No.23 respectively. Channel 10 have been using the Fleur East song “Sax” in their ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ promos for a few weeks now, and this week this song leaps up forty-three spots to land into the Top 30 at No.25, whilst Taylor Swift and her “Out of the Woods” (HP-19) track are up a couple of spots to No.27 and newly certified Gold (●). “Reality” (HP-35) for Lost Frequencies climbs back up four spots to No.37 and the new Selena Gomez track “Hands to Myself” bullets forty-six spots to land at No.41 this week becoming her eighth Top 50 entry and fifth highest charting also. A couple of weeks ago “Keeping Score” by L D R U snuck into the Top 50 at No.49, but this week the song returns and is back up fourteen places to a new peak of No.45, whilst also returning to the fifty is Diplo with “Be Right There” (52 to 49).

DOWN: The only song leaving the Top 10 this week is the long running “What Do You Mean?” (HP-1×4, WI10-19) by Justin Bieber down two to No.11, which makes it the equal fifth longest running Top 10 in ARIA history with the most recent 19 weeks in the Top 10 being achieved by “Moves Like Jagger” for Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera back in 2011. Only down a single place to No.13 is “Ocean Drive” for Duke Dumont which is newly crowned 2x▲Platinum in sales this week and down three to No.14 is Marcus Marr & Chet Faker with “The Trouble With us”. “Flip it” for Charlotte Devaney and Snoop Dogg falls four to No.20 and is now Gold (●) in sales, whilst “Sweet Lovin” for Sigala is down seven to No.24, the same amount of drops also for “Perfect” by One Direction, down to No.29 but now a ▲Platinum selling hit, but tumbling twelve to No.30 is Drake with his “Hotline Bling”. The Weeknd and his three chart entries are all in the 31-40 region of the chart, as “The Hills” falls five to No.32; “In the Night” drops a massive fourteen spots to No.34 (and is now Gold (●) and “Can’t Feel My Face” sags eight spots to No.39. “Uptown Funk” for Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson drops twelve to No.44 and down eleven to No.47 is LunchMoney Lewis and “Whip it!”, whilst dropping six to No.50 is Guy Sebastian and “Black & Blue”, which is now Gold (●) in sales. Two songs falling majorly down the chart are “Drag Me Down” for 1D (45 to 66) and with one going up, one has to fall for Selena Gomez, as “Same Old Love” drops from 40 to No.67.

Australian EDM duo Mashd N’ Kutcher land their second Top 50 entry this week as their latest track “My Sunshine” is the highest new entry at No.26. The song samples the late 1999/early 2000 hit “Steal My Sunshine” by Len (HP-3×3, peaked 24-Jan-2000), which in turn sampled the Andrea True Connection song “More, More, More” (pre-ARIA HP-19×2, peaked late Sept 1976). The duo’s first entry was “Do it Now” which peaked at No.33 in late February of 2015.

BOWIE: The passing last Saturday of music legend David Bowie has created a heap of entries for his older tracks into the Top 100 this week, eight in total and three of those land within the Top 50 this week. His first Top 10 single in Australia (and second to chart here) was the No.9 song “Space Oddity” which spent two weeks at that peak in late June 1973) and the classic song returns at No.31 this week. Five places lower at No.36 is “Heroes” (HP-11×2, peaked late January 1978) his twelfth singles chart entry in Australia, whilst his first charted collaboration for him was with Queen, entitled “Under Pressure” (HP-6×2, peaked mid-Dec 1981) it returns to the Top 50 at No.42 this week.

In the lower fifty we see his first chart entry here “Starman” (HP-37, peaked November 1972) return at No.52 and then his first entry for 1983 and the title track from his 15th studio album “Let’s Dance” (HP-2×3, peaked April 1983) is back in No.63 (it was held off the top spot by “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson at the time).

David’s latest album features the single “Lazarus” which is a new entry at No.72 and becomes his 39th Top 100 entry since his first in mid-August 1972, and from his first charted album comes his 40th entry to the charts, plus the return of his 37th entry. “Changes” was released originally in late 1971 and taken from the ‘Hunky Dory’ album, but it did not chart here in Australia, so this becomes a new entry this week at No.80, whilst another track from the same album in “Life on Mars?” (HP-65, peaked Feb 2009) returns at No.88 (it originally charted here helped by the US version of the same-titled series screening on our TV’s).

Lower 50: The original “Fast Car” by Tracy Chapman is back up six places to No.55 this week and jumping up twelve to No.57 is ZHU, They and Skrillex on “Working for it” (HP-52). The Disturbed return to the chart at a new peak of No.76 with “The Sound of Silence”, whilst the only other non-Bowie related re-entry goes to Jarryd James and “Do You Remember” at No.96, plus the only new certified track in the lower fifty is Troye Sivan with “Wild”, which is now ▲Platinum in sales and down seventeen places to No.96.

There are four further new entries in the lower fifty this week, the first at No.75 is the third entry for US EDM act The Chainsmokers and “Roses” featuring the singer Rozes, the track is currently No.13 in the USA and No.15 in Canada and is the acts first entry since their 2014 hits “#Selfie” (HP-3, April) and “Kanye” (HP-59, August).

English comedian, actor and rapper Olajide Olatunji goes by the make KSI and he has over 11 million subscribers to his YouTube channel. He scores a No.78 entry with “Keep Up” featuring guest rapper JME and the song recently make it to the Top 50 in the UK (Dec 2015). The first entry for new artist Kiiara is in at No.92 entitled “Gold” and the final new entry this week debuts at No.93 and is the fourth track lifted from the forthcoming album for Sia at the end of January entitled “This is Art”, the entry is entitled “Reaper” and becomes one of three entries for her this week, as her last entry “Cheap Thrills” drops out from #70 this week.
