Singles: Aussies on fire – Delta #1 again, 5SOS only top 50 debut
Albums: Pump the air for Welsh metal act Bullet For My Valentine
After a second week on top of the singles chart, Delta Goodrem is surprisingly just one week away from equalling her longest run at #1 on this chart which was three weeks with “Out Of The Blue” almost 10 years ago in October 2004. Last week Goodrem claimed the scalp of Adam Lambert keeping him from the top, this week she is too good for Calvin Harris & Disciples with “How Deep Is Your Love” which jumps from #7 to #2.
Two new arrivals in the top 10 this week with “That’s How You Know” from Nico & Vinz up from #16 to #7 while Aston Merrygold slips into the top 10 at #10 from #12 with “Get Stupid”.
Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” is starting to look menacing with the song jumping from #43 to #18 as it clocks up three weeks on the chart.
Just a sole new chart entry inside the top 50 which is 5 Seconds Of Summer with “Fly Away” at #26.
Duke Dumont just missed chart glory with “Ocean Drive” landing at #51 on debut.
Hopping into the top 50 from lower down the chart are The Rubens with “Hoops” from #65 to #49 in its third week while, Jamie Lawson is back into the top 50 as his former #3 tune “Wasn’t Expecting That” which jumps from #70 to #49.
Ten new albums smash their way into the top 50 with four of them cranking it all the way to the top five.
New at #1 is Bullet For My Valentine with “Venom”. The Welsh metal band are no strangers to the ARIA chart with four of their five albums landing top five, but this is their first #1.
Just missing top spot at #2 is Dead Letter Circus with “Aesthesis” while Jimmy Barnes is new at #3 with “Best Of The Soul Years”. It is repeat business for Dead Letter Circus with all of the Brisbane band’s three albums debuting at #2 on the ARIA album chart. And there is a Barnesy compilation and it’s not even Christmas!
The Waifs were the other artist to debut near the top with “Beautiful You” at #5.
Making way at the top is Dr. Dre with “Compton” down from #1 to #4 in its second week.
The beauty parade of the other chart debuts looks like this:
#25 Dillon Francis with “This Mixtape Is Fire”
#27 Melanie Martinez with “Cry Baby”
#28 Neck Deep with “Life’s Not Out To Get You”
#41 Soulfly with “Archangel”
#43 Andrew Hagger with “Vivid”
#47 Stories with “The Youth To Become”
