Aussies dominate the ARIA Charts

Aussies rule – Grace’s “You Don’t Own Me” #1 single, Hermitude #1 album


After methodically working her way to the top, Grace is the first Aussie to top the singles chart in 2015 with “You Don’t Own Me” featuring G-Eazy which lands at #1 in its fourth week, unseating “See You Again” after six weeks at #1. Grace is the first Aussie to lead the singles chart since The Veronicas spent three weeks at #1 last September.

“Bad Blood” from Taylor Swift featuring Kendrick Lamar is back in the chart at #3 after previously charting for just two weeks before dropping out.

The other artists new to the top 10 this week are Jessie J with “Flashlight” which rose from #15 to #7 in its second week and Rachel Platten with “Fight Song” which climbed from #16 to #10 in its ninth week.

Three new tunes debuted inside the top 50:
#29 The Barden Bellas with “World Championship Finale 2” from Pitch Perfect
#48 DJ Snake and AlunaGeorge with “You Know You Like It” – a Remix of AlunaGeorge’s 2012 tune
#49 A$AP Rocky with “Everyday” featuring Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson


Both charts dominated by Aussies this week with Blue Mountains electronic duo Hermitude landing at #1 with “Dark Night Sweet Light”. It’s great music and deserves a good chart run. Hermitude’s previous album “Hyperparadise” peaked on this chart at #37 in 2012.

Faith No More were regular chart visitors in the 90s but it has been a while between albums for them! “Sol Invictus” debuts at #2 and is their first studio album in 18 years when “Album Of The Year” was just that and #1 in 1997.

The rest of the 10 new albums to debut in the top 50 this week:
#11 Twenty One Pilots with “Blurryface”
#14 Brandon Flowers with “The Desired Effect”
#19 Zedd with “True Colors”
#21 King Parrot with “Dead Set”
#26 Conchita Wurst with “Conchita”
#29 Hot Chip with “Why Make Sense?”
#39 Leonard Cohen with “Can’t Forget: A Souvenir of the Grand Tour”
#41 Jasmine Rae with “Heartbeat”
