Albums: Three new entries in top 4: Northlane, Lamb of God, Alan Jackson
Delta Goodrem is the big news on the ARIA singles chart as the former chart queen crashes back into the top 10 with “Wings” at #8. The tune is Delta’s 15th top 10 single since “Born To Try” in December 2002. It is her first time back in the top 10 since June 2013.
Not much change at the top of the chart this week though with Lost Frequencies (“Are You With Me”) and The Weeknd (“Can’t Feel My Face”) holding at #1 and #2.
Pia Mia‘s “Do It Again” has climbed from #10 to #5 this week.
Just missing a top 10 spot was Selena Gomez as “Good For You” climbed from #17 to a new high at #12 in its sixth week.
Visitor Adam Lambert sees “Ghost Town” reach a new peak of #16 after a long 12-week climb up the chart.
Second-highest new entry this week is another Aussie – Vance Joy with “Fire And The Flood” at #21. It is his second singles chart appearance this year and the track is set to feature on a re-issue of his “Dream Your Life Away” album. (The album sits as #40 this week after 47 weeks on the chart.)
The only other new top 50 entry this week is Swedish producer Sam Feldt at #43 with “Show Me Love”.
