ARIA (Australia) Top Ten/ Chart Review: 23rd April 2018

crowdiegal
Thought I'd do a post about the ARIA charts just people can see what songs are charting in Australia.

Drake keeps his slot at number one but with "Nice For What" replacing "God's Plan" at number one, the last one to do it as the main artist on a song was Macklemore and Ryan Lewis back in 2013 with "Thrift Shop" and "Same Love". Justin Bieber did it last year as the featured act on DJ Khaled's "I'm the One" and Luis Fonsi's and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito".

However despite the new number one "Psycho" by Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign at number 2. I still think with Post Malone's album "Beerbongs and Bentleys" to be released this week to push this to very close to number one in the next few weeks.

All this pushed "God's Plan" by Drake to number 3 after eleven weeks or so at number one (I'd lost count) and "Love Lies" by Khalid and Normani to number 4.

The Weeknd's "Call Out My Name" regains some momentum by jumping 1 place to number 5

"Freaky Friday" by Lil Dicky and Chris Brown is continuing to thoroughly run out its welcome by not falling from the chart quick enough by only dropping two places to number 6.

Speaking of out staying it's welcome "Friends" by Marshmello and Anne-Marie falls from 5 to 7 while "The Middle" by Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey rose 1 spot to 8 basically because "IDGAF" by Dua Lipa collapsed to 11.

While we're on Dua Lipa, one of the biggest movers of the week belongs to "One Kiss" by Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa because it stormed up the chart from 17 to 9, it's number one in the UK and stands a chance of maybe knocking Drake off.

Somehow "These Days' by Rudimental, Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen remains at number 10 for a second week.

Gains

The biggest gainer of the week was "Zombie" by Bad Wolves which climbed 10 places to 26, "Nothing to Regret" by Robinson jumping from 31 to 27 while "Remind Me to Forget" by Kygo and Miguel jumped from 43 to 37 (YES!).

"Hurt Somebody" by Noah Kahan and Julia Michaels jumped from 22 to 16.

Returns

No returns this week.

Losses

The biggest loss was for The Weeknd with "Wasted Times" falling from 30 to 49 while his hit with Kendrick Lamar "Pray for Me" fell to 33 from 26.
"Finesse" by Bruno Mars and Cardi B is on the way out falling from 27 to 31 (that song should probably squeak into the year end list)

Drop Outs

The only song that could potentially make the year end list that left the chart this week is "Candy Paint' by Post Malone which reached a peak of 19.

Also gone are "Capital Letters" by Hailee Steinfeld and Bloodpop (bit of a pity as that song is pretty good), "For You" by Liam Payne (he just dropped a new song with J Balvin) and Rita Ora, "Think About You" by Delta Goodrem (I've soured on this song a bit lately) and unfortunately "Lost in Japan" by Shawn Mendes.

New Entries

So what replaced the songs we lost? Well, Cardi B brought a new song with J Balvin and Bad Bunny called "I Like It" in at number 25 (that song is going to be HUGE!), Zayn's "Let Me" debuts at number 29 (which is okay...it's a sex jam but it's alright), Amy Shark debuts at 38 with "I Said Hi", Nicki Minaj debuts at 41 with "Barbie Tingz" (meh) and 5 Seconds of Summer's album title track "Youngblood" debuting at 46,
