ARIA Charts: Perth singer-songwriter Troye Sivan sees first album “Wild” go #1 on debut

•  Singles: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis just miss top spot
•  Albums: Another new top three with Perth’s Troye Sivan #1

Singles

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis made a good run at top spot, climbing up from #9 to #2 with “Downtown”, but they couldn’t quite unseat Justin Bieber and his single “What Do You Mean?” from a second week leading the singles chart. Bieber’s tune has had amazing global success topping the chart in the UK, USA and Canada.

“Downtown” is positioned for another run at the top this week.

The only newcomer in the top 10 was Felix Jaehn with “Ain’t Nobody” edging higher from #12 to #10 in its fifth week on the chart.

The highest entry of four debuts this week was Sigala with “Easy Love” at #14.

The other new arrivals were:
#16 Troye Silvan with “Wild”
#37 Reigan with “Feels Like Heaven”
#49 N.W.A. with “F**k the Police”
