Meg Mac

• Singles: Jessica Mauboy big mover as Vance Joy re-enters chart
• Albums: Meg Mac debuts #2, fails to topple Ed Sheeran from top spot

Singles

Niall Horan has backed off from his assault on top spot where “Despacito” is again reigning supreme after 10 weeks at #1. Horan’s “Slow Hands” slides from #2 to #6.

Only one change in the top 10 with Charlie Puth‘s “Attention” up from #11 to #10 for a new peak after 13 weeks on the chart.

Jessica’s Mauboy‘s “Fallin'” just missed the top 10, climbing from #25 to #11 in its fifth week.

Just two new singles have cracked the top 50 on debut:
#23 Selena Gomez gives good lip in the accompanying video for “Fetish” featuring Gucci Mane.
#31 Vance Joy with “Lay It On Me”, which premiered on triple j earlier this month. The song is Joy’s first new material since his 2014 debut album “Dream Your Life Away”.

Albums

Meg Mac nearly cracked the top spot on debut with “Low Blows” charting at #2. Standing in her way of course was Ed Sheeran on top again. “Low Blows” is Mac’s debut album, coming three years after debut EP.

The Baby Driver soundtrack crashed into the top 10 at #5 after debuting at #47 last week.

Also new to the top 10 this week was the “Punk Goes Pop Vol 7” compilation, new at #10. The album features Gympie’s The Amity Affliction with a version of “Can’t Feel My Face”.

Six other albums debuted in the top 50:
#22 The Vamps with “Night & Day”, the third album from the British rockers
#29 Alpha Wolf with “Mona”, the debut album from Melbourne metalcore band
#36 The Kite String Tangle with a self-titled debut from Brisbane-based alternative electronic artist and producer Danny Harley
