Adele reigns supreme for sixth week in a row

Adele holds the top spot on both ARIA Charts again this week with her third album "25" and its lead single "Hello", which now racks up its sixth week at the top of the Australian Singles chart.

"Hello" is now the equal longest running No.1 for 2015, alongside the six weeks that Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth achieved with their 'Furious 7' theme song "See You Again" (TW-79), plus Adele notches up her 13th overall week at the top of our charts with her two No.1's, placing her at equal sixth on the list of 'Accumulated Weeks at No.1, Singles: 2010's' alongside Katy Perry and her thirteen weeks at the chart pinnacle.

Whilst "Hello" is the No.1 downloaded/selling track this week, it's Justin Bieber who is closing in on taking over at the top, as his fourth top two single for 2015 "Love Yourself" is the No.1 streamed track in the country, and newly certified Gold in sales, whilst he also holds down the top three spots on the streaming chart this week (Adele is at #4), with "Sorry" at No.3 nationally (#2 streamed) and his third Top 10 placing this week, "What Do You Mean" holds at No.7 (#3 on the streaming chart), plus he has six songs within the Top 50 and still has eleven tracks within the Top 100.

Shawn Mendes jumps up two places to a new peak of No.4 with his track "Stitches" and also climbing to a new peak is Duke Dumont with "Ocean Drive", up three to No.5 thanks to his Stereosonic performances. This in turn pushes down Zara Larsson and MNEK a single place to No.6 with "Never Forget You", and Rudimental were in the country for a promo tour and also appeared at the Stereosonic Music Festival recently, which helps their former No.7 single "Lay it All on Me" to jump back up four places to No.8 whilst also returning to the Top 10, up two places to No.9 are "The Hills" for The Weeknd, and down one spot to No.10 is former No.1 single "Downtown" for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

UP: "Hotline Bling" for Drake is back up a couple of place to No.13 and after opening the ARIA Awards recently, Vance Joy's "Fire & the Flood" is back up four to No.16. DJ Snake scores his fourth Top 20 hit in Australia (third this year) as "Middle" jumps up seven spots to a new peak of No.19 thanks to his Stereosonic shows, whilst David Guetta with Sia and Fetty Wap are up two places to a new chart height of No.21 with "Bang My Head". Conrad Sewell's ARIA Award win helps two of his songs to land within the Top 30 this week, his current single "Who You Lovin'" is back up eight places to No.24 and his former No.1 "Start Again" (winner for 'Song of the Year') bullets back into the fifty at No.28. Ed Sheeran is touring here at the moment and his former No.9 single "Photograph" jumps back also at No.30, and further Stereosonic acts to benefit from their recent shows include Major Lazer who is at No.42 with "Be Together" and back into the Top 50 at No.44 is his former No.1 "Lean on" whilst another act from the festival in Diplo who is back fifty at No.46 with his Justin Bieber infused track "Where Are U Now", whilst the final track returning to the Top 50 is "Uptown Funk" for Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars at No.49, which is now 9xPlatinum in sales.
