Pink Beats Niall Horan to Australia's Album Chart Crown
http://www.billboard.com/articles/colum ... lbum-chart
10/30/2017 by Lars Brandle

Pink and Post Malone are still on top Down Under.

Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony), Pink’s seventh studio album, enters a second week at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. It’s a lofty position for any artist, but Pink can take it all in her stride. Over her career, the American pop star has hit the top with five albums and spent a combined 36 weeks at No. 1 on Australia’s national chart, according to ARIA.

As news broke of Pink’s continued run atop the survey, Live Nation announced the addition of three more shows to her 2018 tour of Australia, for a total of 33 arena shows (the promoter insists these are the final dates on the Australian leg of the Beautiful Trauma World Tour). Pink’s five New Zealand concerts have sold out and her Greatest Hits compilation continues to impress, chalking up 134 weeks on Australia's albums chart and placing just outside the top 10 (it slips 9-12).

With Pink extending her reign, Niall Horan misses out on summiting with his solo debut Flicker (Capitol/EMI). The former One Direction singer’s first LP can’t match its No. 1 start in the U.S., but its No. 2 bow is the healthiest debut entry for any title this week in Australia.

Ed Sheeran’s five-times platinum Divide (Warner) slips 2-3 while Florida metal exponents Trivium snag a fifth top 10 on the national album survey with The Sin And The Sentence (Roadrunner/Warner), their eighth album, which is new at No. 4. George Michael makes a posthumous return to the top 5 with Listen Without Prejudice (Sony). First time around, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, Michael’s second solo set, peaked at No. 2 in September 1990. It’s dropped in at No. 1 in the U.K. and No. 5 in Australia and is bundled with the former Wham singer's 1996 MTV Unplugged performance.

On the ARIA Singles Chart, Post Malone logs a fifth week at No. 1 with “Rockstar” (Republic/Universal) featuring 21 Savage as Camila Cabello makes do with another stint at No. 2 with “Havana” (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug.

The week’s highest new entry goes to Taylor Swift, whose “Gorgeous” (Big Machine/Universal) starts at No. 9. The track is lifted from her forthcoming album Reputation, due No. 10, and follows “Look What You Made Me Do,” which topped the chart in September, and “...Ready For It?,” which reached No. 3 in September and should get a boost from the release last Friday of its blockbuster new video.

Pink and Post Malone Extend Streak Atop Australia's Charts
http://www.billboard.com/articles/colum ... lia-charts
11/6/2017 by Lars Brandle

Pink and Post Malone lock up another week atop Australia’s charts.

Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony), Pink’s seventh studio set, enters a third week at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. It's already double-platinum certified (140,000 units) in less than a month on sale.

Next up: Ed Sheeran’s five-times platinum juggernaut Divide (Warner), which rises 2-1 in its 35th week on the survey while Melbourne rapper 360 has the highest new entry with Vintage Modern (EMI), which bows at No. 3 for his third top 10 album. Vintage Modern features assists from Seth Sentry, Pez, Gary Clark and others and follows on from Utopia, which peaked at No. 2 in June 2014.

Former One Direction star Niall Horan sees his solo debut Flicker slip 2-4, while U.S. R&B star Chris Brown’s marathon, 45-track Halloween release Heartbreak On A Full Moon starts at No. 5. Heartbreak is Brown’s eighth studio album and his first top ten since X hit No. 4 in September 2014.

Just missing the top five this week is Kelly Clarkson’s Meaning of Life, which enters at No. 6 for the inaugural American Idol champ’s sixth top 10 entry, while sibling act Hanson gets a jump on the holiday season with Finally It's Christmas, new at No. 7. It’s the American pop trio’s first stint inside the top ten since 3 Car Garage went to No. 3 in May 1998, and their first appearance on the chart since This Time Around reached No. 11 in April 2000.

With Taylor Swift’s Reputation due to arrive this Friday, Swifties apparently can’t wait for their pop fix. Swift’s diamond-certified (500,000 units) 1989 rises 31-21 in its 130th week on the survey.

It’s an unchanged top 5 on the ARIA Singles Chart, as Post Malone captures a sixth consecutive week at No. 1 with “Rockstar” (Republic/Universal), featuring 21 Savage. The American rapper bags another top 10 as “I Fall Apart” enters the top tier for the first time on a 14-6 spike.

With Malone dominating the tally for another frame, Camila Cabello’s radio-friendly “Havana” (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug can’t improve from second place, while Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” (Atlantic/Warner), Khalid’s “Young Dumb & Broke” (RCA/Sony) and Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still” (Atlantic/Warner) round out the top 5.

With a No. 15 debut, Selena Gomez & Marshmello’s collab “Wolves” (Interscope/Universal) snags the week’s highest new entry on the singles survey. It’s Gomez’s fourth track this year to crack the top 50 (after the Kygo collaboration “It Ain’t Me”; “Bad Liar” and “Fetish”) and the EDM DJ and producer Marshmello’s second (after “Silence” with Khalid).

Pink Outmuscles Sam Smith on Australia's Albums Chart
http://www.billboard.com/articles/colum ... bums-chart
11/13/2017 by Lars Brandle

Post Malone bags a seventh successive week at No. 1 on Australia’s singles chart with “Rockstar” (Republic/Universal), while Pink’s Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony) holds off Sam Smith’s latest LP to make it four straight.

Sam Smith’s sophomore album The Thrill Of It All (Capitol/EMI) starts at the top in the U.S. and U.K. but just misses out in Australia as Pink’s seventh and latest set extends its reign and collects a third platinum certification. The British soul singer can take comfort in the fact his 2014 debut album In The Lonely Hour also opened at No. 2 and took nearly a year to reach the top. In The Lonely Hour finally hit the summit in April 2015 in its 48th week inside the top 50. The lead single from his new album, the former No. 1 “Too Good At Goodbyes,” this week improves 10-7.

Slipping 2-3 on the ARIA Albums Chart this week is Ed Sheeran’s Divide (Warner), while Australian pop hitmaker Guy Sebastian starts at No. 4 with Conscious (Sony). It’s the inaugural Australian Idol winner’s eighth studio album and ninth top ten entry on the albums survey.

Chris Brown's marathon double album Heartbreak On A Full Moon (RCA/Sony) is unmoved at No. 5 while Polaris’ The Mortal Coil (No. 6 via Resist Records/Universal), Maroon 5’s Red Pill Blues (No. 7 via Interscope/Universal) and Roy Orbison's A Love So Beautiful (No. 10 via Legacy/Sony) crack the top 10 on debut.

With Rockstar extending its streak on the ARIA Singles Chart and Camila Cabello’s double-platinum “Havana” (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug entering another week at No. 2, the highest debut single goes to Taylor Swift’s “Call It What You Want” (Big Machine/Universal). It's new at No. 16.

With Reputation released and likely to chart high this weekend, Swift nabs a fourth singles chart entry from the album after “Look What You Made Me Do” (No. 1), “…Ready For It?” (No. 3) and “Gorgeous" (No. 9).

Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' Rules Australia's Albums Chart
http://www.billboard.com/articles/colum ... bums-chart
11/20/2017 by Lars Brandle

It’s the best-selling album of the year in the United States, and the week’s No. 1 in the U.K., and now Taylor Swift’s Reputation (Big Machine/Universal) is crowned champion of Australia’s chart.

Reputation, the U.S. pop singer-songwriter’s sixth studio album, becomes Swift’s fourth No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, following 1989 (November 2014), Red (October 2012) and Speak Now (November 2010).

Swift’s latest unseats Pink’s triple-platinum LP Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony), which dips 2-1, while Ed Sheeran’s six-times platinum Divide (Warner) holds at No. 3, Sam Smith’s sophomore set The Thrill of It All (Capitol/EMI) falls 2-4 and Sydney rapper Kerser lands a fifth top ten album with Engraved In The Game (ABK/Warner), new at No. 5.

Just missing a spot in the top 5 this week is Evanescence’s Synthesis (Sony), the alternative rock outfit’s first album in six years. Synthesis opens at No. 6. And just days after Michael Buble announced his return to the stage, the Canadian crooner’s perennial holiday favorite Christmas (Reprise/Warner) climbs 24-7 in its 54th week. The album has been certified double diamond in Australia, in recognition of sales in excess of one million units and, according to Warner Music, has been No. 1 on the Australian iTunes album chart every Christmas Day since 2011.

It took three, long months, but Camila Cabello’s “Havana” (Epic/Sony) has finally shimmied its way to No. 1 on Australia’s singles chart.

The Cuba-born, U.S.-raised pop singer’s international hit finally deposes Post Malone’s "Rockstar" (Republic/Universal) featuring 21 Savage from the summit of the ARIA Singles Chart.

“‘Havana,” featuring Young Thug, recently crossed the 300 million plays milestone on Spotify and is certified platinum in Canada, Sweden, Ireland and Australia, where it’s clocked up double-platinum certification in its 12 weeks on the national singles survey.

It’s the ex-Fifth Harmony member’s first No. 1 in Australia (the track is also the leader on the Official U.K. Singles Chart).

While “Rockstar” loses its crown, it’s not such a bad week for Post Malone whose "I Fall Apart" is up 6-4 for the track’s first stint in the top 5.

The highest new entry belongs to Eminem, whose “Walk On Water” (Interscope/Universal) featuring Beyoncé is new at No. 10. The track, lifted from Em’s forthcoming ninth studio album, Revival, is the Detroit rapper’s 13th top ten single as a lead artist on the ARIA Singles Chart and his first top 10 release since “The Monster” led the survey in November 2013.

Taylor Swift and Camila Cabello Rule ARIA Charts
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... ria-charts
11/28/2017 by Lars Brandle

Taylor Swift and Camila Cabello are in charge of Australia’s charts for another week.

Swift’s platinum-certified sixth studio set Reputation (Big Machine/Universal) enters a second straight week at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, while former best-selling albums by Pink (Beautiful Trauma via RCA/Sony), Ed Sheeran (Divide via Warner), Michael Buble (Christmas via Reprise/Warner) and Sam Smith’s sophomore set (The Thrill Of It All via Capitol/EMI) complete the top 5.

The week’s highest debut comes from homegrown singer-songwriter Sia, whose holidays-themed record Everyday Is Christmas (Atlantic/Warner) starts at No. 7. It’s her fourth top ten appearance on the ARIA Albums Chart after We Are Born (No. 2 in June 2010), 1000 Forms Of Fear (No. 1 in July 2014) and This Is Acting (No. 1 in February 2016). Also enjoying a top 10 debut this week is Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, the husband and wife team whose first collaborative album The Rest Of Our Life (Artisa/Sony) begins at No. 9.

Meanwhile, Camila Cabello’s “Havana” (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug hangs onto the top spot on the ARIA Singles Chart for a second week, as recordings by Post Malone (“Rockstar” via Republic/Universal and “I Fall Apart” via Universal), Ed Sheeran (“Perfect” via Atlantic/Warner) and Selena Gomez/Marshmello (“Wolves” via Interscope/Universal) round out the top 5.

Camila Cabello, Pink Rule Australia's Charts
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... ias-charts
12/4/2017 by Lars Brandle

Camila Cabello’s “Havana” (Epic/Sony) retains Australia’s singles chart crown as Pink’s Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony) rebounds 2-1 on the national albums survey for a fifth non-consecutive week at the summit.

Pink’s triple-platinum certified seventh album switches places with Taylor Swift’s Reputation (Big Machine/Universal), while Ed Sheeran’s Divide (Warner) holds at No. 3, Michael Buble’s perennial holiday hit Christmas (Reprise/Warner) is unmoved at No. 4 and Daryl Braithwaite enjoys a post-ARIA Awards boost as Days Go By: The Definitive Greatest Hits Collection (Sony) debuts at No. 5. Braithwaite, the former Sherbet frontman, was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame last Tuesday (Nov. 28) in Sydney and, during the ceremony, performed “The Horses,” the Rickie Lee Jones and Walter Becker-penned hit which appears on his new retrospective.

Braithwaite’s hits compilation leads a swag of recordings from ARIA Award winners and performers which charge up the chart. Gang Of Youths storm back up 49-12 with Go Farther In Lightness (Sony), their ARIA Album of the Year-winner, while Lorde -- a performer at the ARIAs -- sees her second set Melodrama (Universal) rise 18-17 and Harry Styles -- winner of the ARIA Award for best international and a performer on the night -- sees his self-titled debut reenter the albums chart at No. 26.

On the ARIA Singles Chart, Camila Cabello’s “Havana” featuring Young Thug snags a third straight week at the summit. The former Fifth Harmony singer’s hit is certified three-times platinum (210,000 units) in its 14 weeks on the tally. In an unchanged top 5, Post Malone holds positions No. 2 and 3 with “Rockstar” (Republic/Universal) and “I Fall Apart” (Universal), respectively, Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” (Atlantic/Warner) is at No. 4 and Selena Gomez & Marshmello’s “Wolves” (Interscope/Universal) packs down at No. 5.

Ed Sheeran's 'Perfect' Climbs to the Chart Summit in Australia
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... -australia
12/11/2017 by Lars Brandle

After 20 weeks, Ed Sheeran “Perfect” (Atlantic/Warner) has finally ascended the chart throne in Australia.

Sheeran’s triple-platinum certified single (210,000 units), which has been revamped and now features vocals from Beyonce, rises 4-1 to match its chart-climbing efforts in the U.K.

It’s Sheeran’s fourth No. 1 single in Australia and follows “Sing” (from 2014), “Thinking Out Loud” (also from 2014) and his 2017 Divide smash “Shape of You,” which stayed at the top spot for a record 15 weeks.

On the ARIA Singles Chart, Sheeran’s “Perfect” dethrones Camila Cabello’s No. 2-ranked “Havana” (Epic/Sony) feat. Young Thug, while Post Malone snags Nos. 3 and 4 with “Rockstar” (Republic/Universal) and “I Fall Apart” (Universal), respectively, as Marshmello x Khalid’s “Silence” (RCA/Sony) improves one place to No. 5.

It’s another solid week for Post Malone who enjoys a top 40 berth with “Candy Paint” lifted from The Fate of the Furious. “Candy Paint” makes its debut at No. 24 for the highest new arrival of the week.

On the ARIA Albums Chart, Pink’s Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony) holds top spot for a sixth non-consecutive week, ahead of Sheeran’s six-times platinum Divide in second place.

There’s a festive feel to the current charts as Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (Columbia/Sony) reenters at No. 18 (the single peaked at No. 2 after its release in 1994) on the singles survey while Michael Buble’s double-diamond (one million units) certified Christmas improves 4-3 on the ARIA Albums Chart, John Farnham & Olivia Newton-John Friends For Christmas (Sony) improves 8-6, Sia’s Everyday is Christmas (Atlantic/Warner) is up 14-10, Christmas with Elvis and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra dips 10-11 and Carey’s six-times platinum Merry Christmas reenters at No. 13. Christmas-themed albums by Pentatonix, Human Nature, The Wiggles and Chris Isaak also impact the top 50.

This week’s highest debut belongs to U2’s Songs Of Experience (Island/Universal), which bows at No. 5 for the Irish rockers’ 17th Top 10 album in Australia. Songs Of Experience eclipses the No. 7 peak of its companion piece, 2014’s Songs of Innocence.

Ed Sheeran Scores Chart Double in Australia
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... -australia
12/18/2017 by Lars Brandle

Ed Sheeran doubles up on Australia’s charts this week as Divide (Warner) rises 2-1 on the albums survey and "Perfect" retains the singles crown.

It’s the first time Sheeran has locked up both tallies since March, when “Shape of You” was cruising to its record-setting 15-week stint at No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart.

Divide, which is certified five-times platinum in these parts, should stay at or near the top for months to come. Sheeran will support his third album with a stadium tour of Australia and New Zealand next March which, like Divide, is doing impressive business. The British singer-songwriter’s itinerary has expanded to 18 shows, eclipsing the historic mark of 14 stadium dates for a single trek set by AC/DC’s Black Ice tour of 2010 and it has passed the all-time sales record for a tour set by Dire Straits in 1986, when an estimated 900,000 people attended the Brothers In Arms shows.

“Perfect,” Sheeran’s fourth No. 1 in Australia, leads an unchanged top five this week. Camila Cabello’s “Havana" (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug is at No. 2 again, Post Malone’s former chart leader “Rockstar” (Republic/Universal) feat. 21 Savage is at No. 3 and the U.S. rapper also appears at No. 4 with "I Fall Apart" (Universal) while Marshmello and Khalid’s “Silence” (RCA/Sony) is unmoved from its peak position of No. 5.

It’s a slow week for new releases with just one track entering the chart for the first time, Calum Scott’s “You Are The Reason” (Capitol/EMI) at No. 36, the British singer-songwriter’s second entry in the top 50 after claiming a No. 2 last year with his cover of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own.”

Meanwhile, Sheeran’s Divide conquers the ARIA Albums Chart for the 21st non-consecutive week as his previous albums Multiply and Plus rise 27-22 and 43-33, respectively. Divide returns to No. 1 for the first time in 14 weeks, as Pink's Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony) is bounced 2-1, Michael Buble’s Christmas (Reprise/Warner) is unmoved from No. 3, John Farnham & Olivia Newton-John’s Friends For Christmas (Sony) rises 6-4 and Taylor Swift’s Reputation (Big Machine/Universal) dips 4-5.

U.S. country artist Luke Bryan has the highest new entry on the chart with What Makes You Country (Capitol/EMI) at No. 6. Bryan’s sixth studio album is his fourth to hit the ARIA top 50.

Ed Sheeran Dominates Australia's Charts
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... lia-charts

Ed Sheeran starts the New Year in much the same way he cruised through 2017…in total control of Australia’s charts.

The British singer and songwriter dominates the ARIA Singles Chart with “Perfect” (Warner) claiming a fourth week at No. 1, the song also bags the Streaming Singles title, and his album Divide conquers the ARIA Albums Chart for a 22nd non-consecutive frame at the top. Divide, which is six-times platinum certified in these parts, rises 3-1 on the chart published Dec. 31, as Pink’s Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony) holds at No. 2 and Eminem’s latest Revival (Interscope/Universal) drops 1-3. Michael Buble’s double diamond certified (1 million copies) holiday classic Christmas (Reprise/Warner) is unchanged at No. 4 while Taylor Swift’s Reputation (Big Machine/Universal) completes the top 5.

Sheeran’s sizzling start shouldn’t cool off anytime soon. The artist will be in the country this March and April for a stadium tour which is shaping as a box office monster. Sheeran’s previous two albums enjoy gains on the latest survey with Multiply up 25-19 and Plus improving 33-27.

The highest new entry this week -- and only new arrival to crack the top 50 of the singles or albums tallies -- comes from the original soundtrack to The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner), which stars homegrown actor and entertainer Hugh Jackman.

Sheeran’s perfect start to 2018 comes after the singer dropped a third iteration of “Perfect,” with Andrea Bocelli, in the lead up to Christmas. It’s ahead of Camila Cabello’s “Havana” featuring Young Thug (up 3-2 via Epic/Sony), Eminem’s “River” featuring Ed Sheeran (down 2-3 via ) and a pair of Post Malone tracks, "Rockstar" featuring 21 Savage (up 5-4 via Republic/Universal) and “I Fall Apart” (down 4-5 via Universal).

Ed Sheeran really was the Wizard of Oz in 2017 as he cast a spell on Australian music fans and ruled the year-end charts.

Mirroring his sublime chart performance in the U.K., the British singer and songwriter owned the best-selling album Down Under with Divide (Warner) and its lead track “Shape of You” was the year’s best-selling single, according to new data published by ARIA.

Sheeran's music dominated the ARIA Singles Chart throughout 2017 to land four inside the year-end top ten (and three of the top four), led by “Shape Of You,” the nine-times platinum hit which ruled the weekly chart for 15 cycles. Also on the year-end singles survey, the five-times platinum Latin smash “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber came in at No. 2 and The Chainsmokers & Coldplay’s “Something Just Like This” was at No. 5.

Divide, the most popular album of the year in the U.S, is seven times platinum in Australia having logged 22 weeks at No. 1 and stayed in the top 10 for the entire 43 weeks since its release in March. The clamour for Sheeran’s latest album also revived his previous collections as 2014’s Multiply landed at No. 7 and 2011’s Plus finished the year at No. 12.

The only other artist to feature in the top 10 of the 2017 End Of Year Singles and Albums Charts is Kendrick Lamar, whose single "Humble." hit No. 8 and his album Damn. (Interscope/ Universal) finished the year at No. 10.

“Congratulations to the incredible Ed Sheeran for having both the No. 1 album and single this year,” comments ARIA CEO Dan Rosen in a statement. “It is a remarkable effort that has not been achieved by any artist since Eminem in 2002."

International acts ruled the upper tier of the year-end albums survey as Pink’s Beautiful Trauma came in at No. 2, Taylor Swift’s Reputation (Big Machine/Universal) was at No. 3, Adele’s 25 (XL/Inertia) -- the best-selling album of 2016 -- appeared at No. 4 and the Moana (Walt Disney/Universal) soundtrack rounded out the top 5.

The best-placed Australian album of 2017 was Paul Kelly’s Life Is Fine (EMI), which dropped in at No. 14, one place below Lorde’s Melodrama. Kelly’s 23rd album gave the acclaimed artist his first national No. 1 during the year and was one of 27 Australian albums to place inside the year-end top 100.

All told, a paltry nine Australian songs cracked the singles chart top 100, with Pnau’s “Chameleon” (MoS/Universal) the highest at No. 32.

Ed Sheeran's 'Perfect' Bags Another Chart Crown Down Under

Ed Sheeran grabs another week at No. 1 on Australia’s singles chart with “Perfect” (Atlantic/Warner) as the soundtrack to The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) rises to the zenith of the national albums survey.

The triple-platinum “Perfect” enters a fifth straight week atop the ARIA Singles Chart and collects another Streaming Singles crown. The track was one of four Sheeran songs to crack the top 10 in ARIA’s recently-published year-end singles tally and it's lifted from the English singer’s Divide, the best-selling album of 2017 in Australia.

Also on the singles chart this week, Camila Cabello’s “Havana” (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug holds at No. 2, Eminem’s “River” (Interscope/Universal) featuring Sheeran is unchanged at No. 3, Post Malone’s “I Fall Apart” (Universal) improves 5-4 and Marshmello x Khalid’s “Silence” (RCA/Sony) gains 7-5.

The highest-ranked homegrown track on the current survey comes from Pnau, whose track “Go Bang” (Universal) improves 19-13, as a pair of new entries impact the top 50: Keala Settle and The Greatest Showman Ensemble's “This Is Me” (it’s at No. 34 via Atlantic/Warner), from the week’s best-selling album, and Camelphat & Elderbrook’s club tune “Cola” (ADA/Warner) at No. 48.

Meanwhile, The Greatest Showman leads a top five comprised of albums which have all logged time at the summit: Sheeran’s Divide (Warner), Pink’s Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony), Eminem's Revival (Interscope/Universal) and Taylor Swift’s Reputation (Big Machine/Universal), respectively.

Psychedelic rock act King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard just miss out on the top 5 with Gumboot Soup (Flightless Records/Inertia), which starts at No. 6. It’s the Melbourne band’s fourth top ten entry and the final in their ambitious campaign to release five albums in 2017.
