Singles: Lost Frequencies unseats Meghan Trainor from top spot
Albums: Tame Impala at #1, one of three new top 10 albums
No newcomers in the top five, but four of the five artists moved around, then two new entries lower down in the top 10 and one more in the top 50.
Lost Frequencies have the new #1 with “Are You With Me” which climbed from #3 to the top in its fifth week. The track from Belgian producer Felix De Laet has been a massive hit in many European markets.
“Like I’m Gonna Lose You” from Meghan Trainor slipped to #3 after four weeks on top. Trainor remains top three on both singles and albums this week.
The top 10 newbies are:
#6 5 Seconds Of Summer with “She’s Kinda Hot” which is their fourth top 10 single and the first single released from their second album.
#8 Calvin Harris & Disciples with “How Deep Is Your Love” which is a new track from his fifth album and his 10th top 10 single.
Pia Mia has slipped into the top 10 at #10 from #22 with “Do It Again” featuring Chris Brown and Tyga.
2014 Nova Red Room performer (in the Qantas Business at LAX no less!) Samantha Jade is the other newcomer in the top 50 with “Shake That” at #32.
Aston Merrygold performs in Dubai tonight for the 2015 Nova Red Room Global Tour and the single “Get Stupid” from the British performer leaps from #50 to #28 in its third week on the chart.
