5SOS' Youngblood hits seventh week at #1

Plus, eleven Top 50 entries for Drake!

5 Seconds Of Summer remain at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for a seventh consecutive week with ‘Youngblood’. The track joins John Farnham’s ‘You’re The Voice’, Pseudo Echo’s ‘Funky Town’ and Kylie Minogue’s ‘Locomotion’ as the Australian singles with the third-longest run at #1. The current record is held by Justice Crew’s ‘Que Sera’, which spent nine weeks in the top spot in 2014.

In addition to topping the Albums Chart with Scorpion and snaring eight debuts on the Singles Chart (more below), the three tracks Drake already had in the Top 50 have jumped up this week. Former #1s ‘Nice For What’ and ‘God’s Plan’ have moved up nine and 21 places, respectively, to sit at #7 and #8. Current single ‘I’m Upset’ has climbed 25 spots to score a new peak at #17.

Drake’s eleven tracks puts him behind Michael Jackson (17), Post Malone (17) and Ed Sheeran (16) for the ARIA record for most tracks in the Top 50 in the same week.

In its third week in the Top 50, ‘Healing Hands’, Conrad Sewell’s first chart appearance in two years has jumped 16 spots to claim a new peak at #21.

After performing at Sunday night’s Logies, Jess Glynne has re-entered the chart and scored a new peak at #35 with ‘I’ll Be There’.

This week’s chart also includes new peaks for Juice WRLD’s ‘Lucid Dreams’ (#11) and NOTD’s ‘I Wanna Know’ (#25).

Michael Jackson ‘Don’t Matter To Me’ – With his fifth album Scorpion topping this week’s ARIA Albums Chart, Canadian rapper Drake has scored eleven entries in the Top 50 of the Singles Chart, including eight debuts. The highest debut is ‘Don’t Matter To Me’, which features vocals recorded in 1983 by the late Michael Jackson. Drake has also debuted in the Top 50 this week with ‘Nonstop’ (#5), ‘Emotionless’ (#12), ‘In My Feelings’ (#15), ‘8 Out Of 10’ (#27), ‘Mob Ties’ (#28), ‘Talk Up’ (Feat. Jay-Z) (#33) and ‘Can't Take A Joke’ (#36). Only Ed Sheeran and Post Malone have scored more debuts in a single chart week, jointly holding the record with 13 apiece.
