ARIA Singles: Drake Returns To No 1

For the first time this year a song has climbed back up to the top of the ARIA Singles chart, and with the last such occurrence being back in September 2014, it’s been awhile since we’ve seen a returning track; as this week “One Dance” by Drake notches up his fifth week at the top of the Australian singles chart.

“One Dance” (#5 DL/#1 Str) is also spending a fifth week at the top in the USA, and now a tenth consecutive week in the UK, with the last track to reclaim the top spot being “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor (during her first visit here), which went back to the top after four weeks away from the summit on the 22nd of September, 2014. Plus Drake could see himself topped by his next single, as “Too Good” (#6 DL/#5 Str) featuring Rihanna jumps up six places to a new peak of No.5, the same peak that their last collaboration climbed to, “Work” (mid-March, 2016), and this is the pairs fourth Top 20 and third Top 10 duet.

In between the two Drake tracks within the top five we see last weeks No.1 for Calvin Harris and Rihanna “This is What You Came For” (#3 DL/#2 Str) (Rihanna also has two songs within the Top 5 this week) down a spot to No.2 after two weeks at the top, whilst holding at No.3 for a fourth non-consecutive week is Justin Timberlake and “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” (#2 DL/#7 Str), and the current No.1 selling/digital single in the country (but very low on streams) this week is “Me Too” (#1 DL/#23 Str) by recent visitor here Meghan Trainor, which is up one spot to a new peak of No.4.

“Just Like Fire” (#4 DL/#16 Str) for Pink, “Say it” (#10 DL/#3 Str) by Flume and Tove Lo plus DNCE and their track “Cake by the Ocean” (#13 DL/#13 Str) all drop two places each to No.6, No.8 and No.10 respectively, and on hold for another week are The Chainsmokers with Daya and “Don’t Let Me Down” (#7 DL/#6 Str) and “Panda” by Desiigner (#12 DL/#4 Str) at numbers No.7 and No.9 respectively.

UP: Jumping five places to a new peak of No.11 is Ariana Grande and “Into You” (#9 DL/#14 Str), which could become her new albums second Top 10 if it gets there next week, and zooming thirty-one spots to land his second Top 20 hit in Australia is Shawn Mendes as “Treat You Better” (#11 DL/#21 Str) is in at No.14 this week. The current No.1 single in Germany by local act Cookin’ on 3 Burners (Kungs vs…) with “This Girl” (#20 DL/#27 Str) is up five places to a new peak of No.18 and now Gold (●) in sales, holding at No.19 is Dua Lipa and “Be the One” (#18 DL/#24 Str, now ▲Platinum) which was performed on The Voice this past week, and also scoring their second Top 20 hit this week are twenty one pilots whose new song “Ride” (#16 DL) is up five to a new peak of No.20. Charlie Puth jumps nine to No.22 with “We Don’t Talk Anymore” (#8 DL/#34 Str) and thanks to the song being used in the current ‘Love Child Season 3′ promos on Channel 9, “Sound of Silence” (#21 DL) by Dami Im is back up to No.31 this week. Flo Rida and Jason DeRulo climb three to a new peak of No.36 with “Hello Friday” (#33 DL) and up twelve to land at No.37 is Selena Gomez and “Kill ’em with Kindness” (#39 DL), with two songs climbing into the Top 50 this week being Imany and her first entry “Don’t Be So Shy” (#31 DL), up thirty-eight spots to land at No.42 and up eleven to a new peak of No.45 are Fifth Harmony with Fetty Wap on “All in My Head (Flex)”.

DOWN: The only song leaving the Top 10 is the third entry to the ten for Galantis, as “No Money” (HP-6, WI10-4, #19 DL/#8 Str) is down two places to No.12, but the song is newly certified Gold (●), whilst also scoring a Gold cert this week are Topic with Nico Santos on their track “Home” (#17 DL/#20 Str) which is down two to No.15. After peaking at No.17 last week, “Sex” (#29 DL/#9 Str) for Cheat Codes drops back down four to No.21 and down three to No.24 is former No.1 “7 Years” (#28 DL/#19 Str) for Lukas Graham, which this week goes from 2 to 4x▲Platinum in sales, whilst dropping seven to No.27 are Little Mix and Jason DeRulo on “Secret Love Song” (#26 DL/#33 Str), whilst their follow-up single with Sean Paul and “Hair” (#27 DL) is down one to No.28 and now Gold (●) in sales. “Cheap Thrills” (#37 DL/#17 Str) for Sia is down eight to No.30, as too falling eight is Flume with “Never Be Like You” (#12 Str) to No.32, with Anne-Marie and “Do it Right” (#28 Str) down to No.35 and now Gold (●). Falling hard out of the Top 50 this week are “Dangerous Woman” for Ariana Grande (40 to 51), “My House” for Flo Rida (41 to 53), “Dear Life” (#38 DL) by Delta Goodrem (37 to 54), “Lot to Learn” for Luke Christopher (44 to 58) and last weeks highest entry for The Avalanches and “Frankie Sinatra”, which is down twenty-six spots to No.60 this week.

Like last week, an Australian act claims the top new entry this week, and it goes to the sister/twin duo of The Veronicas and the first single from their forthcoming fourth album (no date or title known as yet), the song “In My Blood” (#14 DL) enters at No.26 and becomes the girls’ 13th Top 50 appearance and their 15th Top 100 entry. The other act who debuts in the Top 50 this week is Usher with “Crash” (#32 DL/# Str), the first taste from his July due eighth studio album entitled “Flawed”, the new song which enters at No.48 becomes his 37th Top 100 visit and also his 29th Top 50 appearance too.

Lower 50: With only one more new entry this week to the Top 100 to come, here are some lower fifty movements, “Work” for Rihanna and Drake is down a couple of places to No.55, but more importantly it is now 2x▲Platinum in sales, whilst her next single “Needed Me” (#35 Str) is right behind at No.56, with Beyonce rebounding twenty-seven spots to No.57 with “Hold up” (HP-25, #34 DL). Last weeks debut of “Don’t Mind” for Kent Jones leaps up thirty places to a new peak of No.61 and thanks to his new album debuting this week within the Top 15, Nick Jonas along with Tove Lo and “Close” is back up a couple of spots to No.67.

Another of last weeks new entries also climbs, DJ Khaleed with Drake on “For Free” (#40 DL) which is up five spots to a new peak of No.70, with a big leap for an older song in the Ed Sheeran track “Photograph” back up thirteen spots to No.76, whilst Ed also retains the longest charting single again this week as his former No.1 “Thinking of You” is down three to No.90 in its 93rd week within the Top 100. Thanks to their new album debuting at No.1. “Fall Together” (HP-50) by The Temper Trap is back up ten places to No.88 and the only returning track to the Top 100 this week is “Ain’t Your Mama” (HP-85) for Jennifer Lopez at #100.

The only lower fifty entry this week is for Mike Len Williams II, who goes by the stage name of Mike WiLL Made-it, who as a songwriter and producer has done songs and production for such artists as Beyonce, Ciara, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus, with his debut album “Ransom 2” due later this year. He teams with Rihanna for his first chart entry “Nothing is Promised” which comes in at No.69 this week and is the fifth entry within the Top 100 this week for her, four of which are duets, and two of those are with Drake.
