ARIA Charts: Justin Timberlake, DZ Deathrays & Shannon Noll debut in top 10

• Singles: The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar highest debut, Bazzi big mover
• Albums: JT, DZ Deathrays and Shannon Noll all debut inside top 10

Mediaweek editor James Manning takes a look at the ARIA Charts for the week starting February 5. 


Drake held at #1 again with Rudimental climbing higher from #10 to #4 with “These Days” for their third top five single.

Halfway through the second month of the year and there was just one new entry inside the top 50:

#18 The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar with “Pray For Me”.

Bazzi was a big mover from #84 all the way to #33 with “Mine”.

Kendrick Lamar & SZA are also top 20 this week with “All The Stars”, up from #30 to #19. These tunes at #18 and #19 are from the soundtrack to the forthcoming Marvel superhero movie Black Panther.

Other notable movers were:

#41 Vance Joy with “We’re Going Home” – new peak after four weeks.
#45 Liam Payne & Rita Ora with “For You (Fifty Shades Freed)” – new peak after five weeks.
#50 Zedd & Grey with “The Middle” featuring Maren Morris – new peak after two weeks.


Three new albums in the top 10, but none of them able dislodge The Greatest Showman soundtrack from the top, where it sits for a sixth week. Just one other album was new to the top 50 this week.

The chart new arrivals this week:

#2 Justin Timberlake with “Man Of The Woods” – fifth album, which managed only one and a half stars in the Fairfax Media review (but three and a half in The Australian).

#4 DZ Deathrays with “Bloody Lovely” – third album from Brisbane dance/punk duo.

#7 Shannon Noll with “Unbroken” – unusual promotional strategy: head to the jungle in South Africa, but it seems to be working for his first album since 2011.

#27 Rich Brian with “Amen” – debut album from the Indonesian rapper.
