Singles
Lukas Graham continues to maintain top spot with “7 Years” making it four weeks in a row. ARIA reports fellow Danes Cut ‘N’ Move also spent four weeks at #1 with “Give It Up” (#1 Feb. ’94). Of the previous Danish #1s on the singles chart, only Aqua’s “Doctor Jones” has spent more weeks at #1 with seven.
Very little movement in the top 10 apart from both Daya, with “Hide Away” from #13 to #7, and Sia, with “Cheap Thrills” from #12 to #8, pushed a little higher.
Two potential top 10 arrivals next week could be:
#30 to #13 “Work From Home” from Fifth Harmony featuring Ty Dolla $ign
#20 to #14 “Faded” from Alan Walker
New arrivals posting a top 50 spot on debut were:

The Cat Empire outpaced eight new albums in the chart this week to #1. Four of those artists found a home in the top 10 with another four debuting inside the top 50.
“Rising with the Sun” is The Cat Empire’s seventh album and their second #1. Their first #1 was with their second album “Two Shoes” in 2005. The band is yet another Australian act to hold the spot this year.
