Justice Crew Spend Second Week At ARIA No 1

Justice Crew spend a second week at No.1 on the ARIA Singles Chart with their second chart-topping single “Que Sera”, the track debuting with Gold sales status, this week though it’s doubled that to achieve ▲Platinum in sales.

The track also equals their previous No.1 “Boom Boom” and its run of two weeks at the top, so if Que Sera stays for a third week it will become the longest run at the top for Justice Crew. And threatening that run are Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea with “Problem” which is spending its second week at No.2, with our neighbors New Zealand the only country to give it a No.1 berth (so far).

Making up a mostly Aussie Top 3 (alongside JC and Iggy) are Sheppard with “Geronimo”, which is back up a place to No.3, whilst ZHU leaps up six places to No.4 with his electro track “Faded”, with Australia the only country (I could find) to be charting this song, and Zhu’s jump in turn pushes Ed Sheeran with “Sing” down two places for a second week, to No.5 this week.

David Guetta, Showtek and Vassy hold at No.6 with “Bad”, whilst Jason DeRulo is down a couple of places to No.7 with “Wiggle” featuring Snoop Dogg. Sam Smith holds onto No.8 for a second week with “Stay With Me”, whilst Milky Chance jump up four places to No.9 with “Stolen Dance”, Australia now the 14th country to make it a Top 10 hit, and lastly the seventh single-titled song within the Top 10, down a place to No.10 is Sia with “Chandelier”, spending its seventh (and possibly final) week within the ten.

NEW PEAKS & MOVERS: Jumping up eight places to a new peak of No.13 is DJ Snake and Lil’ Jon with “Turn Down for What”, which is the only other new certification for the week, achieving Gold (●) in sales. After returning to the ARIA Chart at No.42 last week, and also reclaiming the No.1 spot in the UK for a second week (after Calvin Harris took over for a week), Dutch DJ Mr. Probz and his track “Waves” swells up twenty-seven places to No.15 this week. With the new Michael Jackson album “Xscape” debuting at No.3, the albums lead single “Love Never Felt so Good” featuring Justin Timberlake this week is up to a new peak of No.28 and right behind them, leaping thirty spots to No.29 are Nico & Vinz with “Am I Wrong?”. Illy lands his highest charting single this week, as “Tightrope” is up fifteen places to No.33, beating the No.38 peak of his previous best effort “Youngbloods” (peaked Oct 2013). American Authors climb back up five to No.42 with “Best Day of My Life” and returning to the Top 50, up twenty-one spots to No.48 are Vance Joy with “Riptide”, due to a version being sung on ‘The Voice: Blind Auditions’ this past week, and the track is currently Top 10 in several European countries.

DOWN DOWN: After two weeks within the Top 10, “Fancy” for Iggy Azalea drops back down four places to No.11 after peaking at No.7 last week, and last weeks No.11 debut for Coldplay “A Sky Full of Stars” tumbles down fourteen spots to No.25. After leaping to a new peak of No.16 last week, Idina Menzel and her version of “Let it Go” is back down to No.21 this week, whilst Justin Timberlake is also down five spots to No.23 with “Not a Bad Thing”. Zendaya is down seven spots to No.31 with “Replay” and “Love Runs Out” for OneRepublic, as they fall twelve to No.35. Further drops come via Demi Lovato and her version of “Let it Go” (37 to 52), The Chainsmokers “#SELFIE” (49 to 62), Passenger with “Hearts on Fire” (35 to 65) and now that the ‘Gallipoli’ promos have ceased, Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” falls back thirty spots to No.68, whilst the biggest tumble of the week sees Ricki-Lee down almost sixty spots with “All We Need is Love” (39 to 98).

The top two debuts are by the same group, local Sydney band 5 Seconds of Summer, who enter with “Don’t Stop” at No.12 and “Good Girls” at No.19, whilst their former No.1 single “She Looks So Perfect” is on hold at No.20 this week, giving the guys three Top 20 entries for the week, with the last act to have three Top 20 entries in a single week being The Voice 2013 winner Harrison Craig on the week of 24-June-2013. Both of the new 5SOS tracks are taken from their forthcoming “Don’t Stop” EP which is out June 13th, with their self-titled debut album out June 27th. These two new entries become the bands third and fourth Top 100 entry and second and third Top 50 placing.

Jessica Mauboy performed last Saturday night (here) at the second semi-final of Eurovision, becoming the first invited Australian act to perform during the show (she sang her song whilst the votes were tallied), and the song she sang “Sea of Flags” which was written especially for her appearance, debuts at No.40 this week becoming her 19th Top 100 entry and 18th Top 50 entry.

The first taste of the forthcoming eighth studio album for Usher (as yet untitled) debuts at No.44 entitled “Good Kisser”, becoming his 31st Top 100 entry and his 27th Top 50 hit, with his last chart appearance being on the Ludacris and David Guetta song “Rest of My Life” (HP-16, peaked December 2012), whilst his last lead entry was “Numb” (HP-39, peaked late October 2012).

Lower 50: Kiesza jumps up twenty-six places to No.54 with “Hideaway” and another new entry from last week, Tove Lo with “Stay High” is up to a new peak of No.55 this week. Lana Del Rey is back up six spots to No.71 with “West Coast” (HP-44) and the first two of the three returning tracks are both ‘The Voice’ related, with “Stay” (HP-4) for Rihanna back in at No.89 and The Black Eyed Peas return at No.93 with their first No.1 single here “Where is the Love” (HP-1×6, peaked late August 2003), which also benefits from the Joanna Lumley interview with Will.i.am after Tuesday nights episode. The final returnee is at 100, as Skrillex is back in with “Recess” (HP-47).

Tiesto debuts at No.51 with Matthew Koma on the track “Wasted”, becoming his fifth Top 100 entry, and he recently scored his first Top 10 track on the ARIA Singles chart when “Red Lights” went to No.8 in late January of this year. Returning to the charts at No.58 is Linkin Park with “Until it’s Gone”, the first single to be lifted from their mid-June due sixth studio album “The Hunting Party” and it becomes the bands 22nd Singles chart entry.

The past several years we have seen the Eurovision winner jump into the charts the week after the show, but this year something a little different has occurred, as the winner from Austria, drag-artiste Conchita Wurst with “Rise Like a Phoenix” does not make the Top 100 this week, but the second and third placed winners do enter the charts. Second placed The Netherlands with their group The Common Linnets debut at No.66 with “Calm After the Storm” and third placed Sweden, the song performed by Sanna Nielsen is “Undo”, and it enters at No.81. The last time a non-winner from Eurovision entered the ARIA Charts was 1996’s eighth placed English entrant Gina G (who was Australian in the first place) with “Ooh Aah…Just a Little Bit” (HP-5, peaked June 1996). The last time two Eurovision songs made the charts was back in 1974 when the winners for that year ABBA made it to No.4 in mid-August with “Waterloo”, the other song to chart from that years contest was the song from the UK “Long Live Love” performed by Olivia Newton-John (HP-11, peaked Sept 1974). Lastly the only other time that two non-winning entries from Eurovision have made the charts was the year prior, 1973, when third-placed UK entrant Cliff Richard with “Power to All Our Friends” (HP-31, May 1973) and second placed Spain and their group Mocedades “Eres Tu” (HP-30, peaked early May 1974 {a year after the show}) both charted, although at different times.

The new entry between the two Eurovision debuts is at No.72, The Janoskians with the ska infused track “Real Girls Eat Cake”, which becomes the local acts third chart entry, having previously charted with “Set This World on Fire” (HP-19, peaked October 2012) and “Best Friends” (HP-30, May 2013).
