5SOS continue Singles Chart dominance for fifth week

Debuts for Nicki Minaj, Martin Garrix, Troye Sivan and more!

In the week they pick up their third #1 on the Albums Chart with Youngblood, the title track to 5 Seconds Of Summer’s third album spends a fifth straight week at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The last time an Australian artist held the #1s on both charts was August 2011 when Gotye was #1 on the Singles Chart with ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ and #1 on the Albums Chart with Making Mirrors.

Moving up one spot from last week, ‘Girls Like You’ becomes Maroon 5’s fourth track to peak at #2 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The band has previously reached the same peak with ‘Moves Like Jagger’ (#2 Aug. ’11), ‘Payphone’ (#2 Jun. ’12) and ‘One More Night’ (#2 Aug. ’12). They’ve only peaked higher with ‘She Will Be Loved’ (#1 Sept. ’04).

In its third week in the Top Ten, Anne-Marie’s ‘2002’ jumps up four spots to grab a new peak at #4. It matches the British artist’s highest chart peak, previously reached with the Marshmello collaboration ‘Friends’ (#4 Apr. ’18).

Following the death of XXXTentacion at the age of 20, two of the rapper’s tracks have re-entered the Top 50 this week. The highest re-entry comes for ‘Sad!’, which picks up a new peak at #8. Further down the chart, ‘Changes’ is back in at #34.

Following the announcement of his first Australian tour, British artist Calum Scott returns to the Top 50 this week with ‘You Are The Reason’ (#37) and ‘Dancing On My Own’ (#49).

This week’s chart also includes new peaks for Billie Eilish’s ‘Lovely’ (#11), Clean Bandit’s ‘Solo’ (#12), Juice WRLD’s ‘Lucid Dreams’ (#14), Peking Duk’s ‘Reprisal’ (#20) and NOTD’s ‘I Wanna Know’ (#36).


#17: Nicki Minaj Feat. Ariana Grande ‘Bed’ – Nicki Minaj score a second Top 50 entry for 2018 with ‘Bed’. The track is the second single released from Minaj’s forthcoming Queen album, set for release in August. Earlier in the year she charted with the non-album single ‘Barbie Tingz’ (#41 Apr. ’18). Minaj and Grande have previously appeared together on the Singles Chart with ‘Bang Bang’ (alongside Jessie J) (#4 Sept. ’14) and Grande’s ‘Side To Side’ (#3 Sept. ’16).

#23: Martin Garrix Feat. Khalid ‘Ocean’ – Dutch DJ Martin Garrix scores his first Top 50 entry for 2018 with the Khalid-featured track ‘Ocean’. The single’s debut position matches the peak of Garrix’s previous chart entry, the collaboration with Troye Sivan ‘There For You’ (#23 Jun. ’17).

#33: Kygo & Imagine Dragons ‘Born To Be Yours’ – Norwegian producer Kygo and American band Imagine Dragons team up for ‘Born To Be Yours’. The track becomes Kygo’s second chart entry for 2018 after ‘Remind Me To Forget’. Imagine Dragons last charted with ‘Whatever It Takes’ (#34 Jan. ’18).

#39: Troye Sivan Feat. Ariana Grande ‘Dance To This’ – Troye Sivan hits the Top 50 with a third track from the forthcoming Bloom album with ‘Dance To This’. The collaboration with Ariana Grande follows ‘My My My!’ (#14 Jan. ’18) and ‘Bloom’ (#34 May ’18) into the chart. Bloom is released on 31 August.

#41: Conrad Sewell ‘Healing Hands’ – Australian singer-songwriter Conrad Sewell make his first appearance in the Top 50 since 2016 with ‘Healing Hands’. The track is one of two released on the Ghosts & Heartaches single, along with ‘Come Clean’. Sewell last charted with ‘Remind Me’ (#22 Feb. ’16).

#44: Tiesto & Dzeko Feat. Preme & Post Malone ‘Jackie Chan’ – Dutch DJ/producer and Canadian DJ/producer Dzeko release the collaboration ‘Jackie Chan’. The single is Tiesto’s first Top 50 appearance since ‘wasted’ (#44 Jul. ’14) and Dzeko’s Top 50 debut. The track features current chart mainstay Post Malone, as well as Canadian rapper Preme.
