ARIA Chart: Justin Bieber topples Adele on singles chart, Coldplay album debuts at #2

ARIA Charts: Justin Bieber scores another #1 single, Adele keeps Coldplay from #1 album

Singles: Bieber explodes close to Christmas with #1 and #3 in top 10
Albums: Adele holds in top spot as “25” ships over 420,000 units

We suggested a couple of weeks ago that people deciding to purchase Adele’s “25” instead of “Hello” might loosen her grip on #1 in the singles chart. That didn’t happen back then, but it might have this week as Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” jumps a spot to #1 with “Hello” down one place to #2.

It’s starting to look like a Bieber Christmas with the prolific pop star securing three places again this week in the top 10 with “Sorry” at #3 and his former #1 “What Do You Mean?” at #10 after 15 weeks on the chart.

DJ Snake is new in the top 10, with “Middle” featuring Bipolar Sunshine up from #19 to #7 after seven weeks on the chart.

Three new entries this week as new releases dry up:
#9 Hilltop Hoods with “Higher” featuring James Chatburn
#11 Sigala with “Sweet Lovin’ “
#42 Marcus Marr and Chet Faker with “Work” EP

Troye_Sivan_-_Blue_NeighbourhoodWith ARIA Diamond status being 500,000 units of an album, Adele is well on the way to Diamond status with “25” now 6x Platinum (Platinum = 70,000). Adele’s “21” has qualified for Diamond though as it is currently 15x Platinum (over 1,000,000).

Needless to say that sort of action keeps “25” secure on top spot, with “21” down to #15 this week and “19” down to #26.

New entrants Coldplay and Troye Sivan have cost Kylie and Sam Smith places in the top 10 just two weeks out from Christmas.

Coldplay’s “A Head Full Of Dreams” has debuted at #2, while Sivan’s “Blue Neighbourhood” crashes into the top 10 at #6.

Three other albums are new inside the top 50:
#14 Debut self-titled album from The X Factor winner Cyrus
#36 G-Eazy with “When It’s Dark Out”
#48 Roy Orbison with “One Of The Lonely Ones” – the “lost” Orbison album
