ARIA Charts: George Ezra #1 single, Carrie Underwood hottest new album

Mediaweek editor James Manning rounds up the latest ARIA charts.

• Singles: George Ezra’s first #1, Khalid the only new top 50 arrival
• Albums: Carrie Underwood, 6lack, David Guetta new in top 10


Dean Lewis has been toppled from top spot by George Ezra whose Top Gun has taken the slow road to the top finally clinching the title after 10 weeks. The song, a former UK #1, is Ezra’s first chart-topper in Australia.

Lewis hasn’t fallen far, mind you, sitting just at #2 after 12 weeks on the chart, five of them at #1.

The only new entry in the top 10 this week is at #8 with Marshmello & Bastille’s Happier up from #13 in its fifth week on the chart. American DJ/producer Marshmello makes the top 10 for the fourth time, while Dan Smith’s British group Bastille appear in the top 10 for a third time.

Just one new release cracked the top 50 on debut:

#15 Khalid with Better.

A couple of tunes slipped into the top 50 from lower down the chart:

#64 to #41Tom Walker with Leave A Light On

#61 to #45 Machine Gun Kelly with Rap Devil


No change at the top with Kamikaze from Eminem spending a third week at #1.

Eight new albums debuted inside the top 50 with three of them in the top 10. The new arrivals are:

#4 Carrie Underwood with Cry Pretty. The sixth album from the US country singer is her third top 10 album, and third to peak (so far) at #4.

#6 6lack with East Atlanta Love Letter. The second album from Atlanta singer-songwriter/rapper 6lack is his first time on the ARIA chart.

#9 David Guetta with 7. The seventh album from the French DJ and producer is his first album in four years. In 2014, Listen peaked at #11.

#20 Billie Eilish with Don’t Smile At Me. The first album from the US singer/songwriter.

#24 Good Charlotte with Generation RX. The seventh album from the US rockers will have to get some momentum to equal the success of their sixth – Youth Authority – which hit #1 just over two years ago.

#28 Jungle with For Ever. Second album from the British soul collective.

#32 Tony Bennett and Diana Krall with Love Is Here To Stay. The two music legends celebrate the music of George and Ira Gershwin.

#42 Dreams with No One Defeats Us. Not a massive chart debut for the collaboration between Luke Steele and Daniel Johns. The SMH famously described a Dreams Vivid live show earlier this year as an “unlistenable nightmare”.
