Singles

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are staking a claim at the top similar to Justin Bieber’s recent month at #1. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Downtown” has been on top for three weeks now and has been in the chart for the same amount of time as Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” – seven weeks. Bieber hasn’t strayed far from the top either, he’s still lodged at #2.

Wollongong’s Cyrus Villanueve smashed into the top 10 at #6 with “Wicked Game” from The X Factor.

Other top 10 newcomers were Rudimental with “Lay It All On Me” up from #11 to #7.

Dawin’s “Dessert” climbed from #17 to #8 in its slow climb to the top (eight weeks), while The Weeknd jumped from #12 to #10 on an even slower chart assault (20 weeks).

Jess Glynne meanwhile is nearly top 10 with “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself”, climbing from #24 to #13 after nine weeks.

Another track taking some time in the chart is “679” from Fetty Wap featuring Remy Boyz which lifted from #70 to #27 after 13 weeks.

This week’s only other top 50 chart newcomer was The 1975 with “Love Me”.

A promo tour from Little Mix made a dent in the chart with “Love Me Like You Do” up from #100 to #36 in its third week.

Selena Gomez is back in the 50 with “Same Old Love” up from #76 to #44, not quite equalling its previous peak of #42.

Albums

Sydney folksters Boy & Bear is the latest Australian artist to crack top spot in what has been a good year for local music sales. “Limit Of Love” is their third album and their second successive ARIA #1 album.

Other newcomers cracking the top five on debut were Selena Gomez with her second album “Revival” at #3 and Canadian folkies City and Colour with their fifth album “If I Should Go Before You” in at #5, their third consecutive album to debut top five.

Taylor Swift spends week #51 in the top 10 with “1969” while Ed Sheeran’s “X” nearly makes it back in after 69 weeks as the seven-time platinum release edges higher from #13 to #11.

Reece Mastin just missed the top 10 on the first week in the chart with his third album “Change Colours” landing at #12.

Five other albums made the 50 on their first week:

#43 “35 MPH Town” from Toby Keith
#45 Slo3 Mio with “On Another Note”
