Drake scores a rare ARIA chart double

Drake has achieved a rare chart double this week with #1 single and album

•  Drake #1 on both charts, pushing aside P!nk and Beyoncé

Singles

After landing at #5 on his fifth week on the charts last week, Drake has stormed to the top of the chart with “Onc Dance” featuring Wizkid and Kyla. In grabbing top spot, Drake has toppled P!nk after one week at #1 and held back the new tune from Calvin Harris and Rihanna, “This Is What You Came For”, which sits at #2 on its first week.
The rest of the top five is Gnash with “I Hate U, I Love You”, P!nk with “Just Like Fire” and The Chainsmokers with “Don’t Let Me Down”.
The Calvin Harris and Rihanna collaboration was the only newcomer to the top 10.
Likely to find a top 10 spot next week is Galantis as “No Money” lifts from #19 to #12 in its third week.
Two singles found their way into the top 50 on debut:
#42 Ghost Town DJs with “My Boo”
#50 Blink 182 with “Bored To Death”
There was plenty of other upward movement for people already embedded on the chart that included:
#34 to #16 Desiigner with “Panda”
#24 to #17 Beyoncé with “Formation”
#51 to #25 Beyoncé (again) with “Hold Up”
#49 to #38 Topic with “Home”
#73 to #47 AnneMarie with “Do It Right”
#70 to #48 Kungs with “This Girl”
Outside of the top 50, Radiohead’s “Burn The Witch” was new at #81.
Two weeks after his death, nine Prince songs dropped out of the top 100.

Albums

Achieving what is a rare chart double, Drake has charged to #1 with his new album “Views”. In doing so he brushed aside last week’s leader Beyoncé with her album “Lemonade” now resting at #2.
Adele’s former #1 “25” is back to #3 after 24 weeks, Dami Im’s “Classic Carpenters” moves down from #3 to #4 while the album “Together” is on a new high, jumping from #13 to #5.
The two other newcomers to the top 10 were also chart debuts:
#8 Rob Zombie with “Electric Warlock”
#9 Sixx:A.M. with “Prayers for the Damned”
The other new releases to make the chart this week:
#11 Graeme Connors with “60 Summers”
#18 Luca Brasi with “If This Is All We Are Going To Be”
#19 King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard with “Nonagon Infinity”
#26 Olympia with “Self Talk”
#37 Richard Marx with “The Ultimate Collection”
#49 Melody Pool with “Deep Dark Savage Heart”
Of the long-term chart champions this week, Ed Sheeran has lost his top 10 spot, while Taylor Swift is out of the top 20 for what could be the first time in 80 weeks!
