ARIA Charts: Red Hot Chili Peppers’ new album debuts at #1

ARIA Charts: Red Hot Chili Peppers have 2 albums in top 5, Drake single #1 for 6 weeks

•  Singles: Week number six for Drake at #1 with “One Dance”
•  Albums: Red Hot Chili Pepper’s “The Getaway” #1


It was way back on May 2 since either Drake or Calvin Harris wasn’t at #1 or #2. On May 9 Drake saw “One Dance” featuring Wizkid and Kyla hit #1 in its fifth week on the chart. The song then spent four consecutive weeks on top, took a break for a fortnight and has now spent another two weeks at #1 making it six weeks in all.

Filling the gap for the fortnight earlier this month was Calvin Harris with “This Is What You Came For” which is still hovering near the top at #2.

There were no new entries in the top 10 this week, but two tunes just missing a top 10 spot were:

#22 to #12 Charlie Puth with “We Don’t Talk Anymore” featuring Selena Gomez
#19 to #13 Dua Lipa with “Be The One”
Three songs spent their first week in the top 50:
#36 Twenty One Pilots with “Heathens”
#42 Lukas Graham with “Mama Said”
#47 Jarryd James with “1000X” featuring Broods

Rihanna’s “Needed Me” slips into the top 50 from #56 while Kent Jones’ “Don’t Mind” is at #49 from #61 and OneRepublic’s “Wherever I Go” makes it to #50 from #66.


Getaway Chili Peppers

Lots of money changing hands because of Red Hot Chili Peppers this week. Not only has their new album “The Getaway” landed at #1, their “Great Hits” collection has climbed from #10 to #4. “Getaway” is the band’s fifth #1 album and their first since “Stadium Arcadium” in 2006.

The only other top 10 arrival was a re-entry for Radiohead with “A Moon Shaped Pool” back at its previous best of #2 after climbing all the way back from #48 last week.

There were seven other new albums landing in the top 50 on their chart debut:

#11 Gojira with “Magma”
#12 case/lang/veirs with “CASE/LANG/VEIRS”
#16 Jake Bugg with “On My One”
#22 With Confidence with “Better Weather”
#24 YG with “Still Brazy”
#32 Soundtrack to “Me Before You”
#46 Bob Evans with “Car Boot Sale”
