We have an exciting announcement to share with you today! Starting this Saturday, March 10th, our iconic radio show Take 40 Australia will be joining forces with the ARIA chart, and counting down the top 40 songs in the country in collaboration with them, across all our platforms!
This means we'll be continuing to do what we do best -- providing you with Australia's most popular music countdown- in partnership with one of the most reputable bodies in the Aussie music industry -- the ARIA charts!
These charts have been long touted as the most iconic and authoritative guide to the highest-selling music in Australia, and have also been regarded as both a measure of achievement for artists and a source of interest and debate for fans.
The Take 40 countdown will now reflect the top 40 songs from the ARIA Singles Chart, which is compiled each week from recorded music sales data from the majority of Australia's leading physical and digital music retailers.
To celebrate this amazing new venture, Take 40 are giving four lucky people to score a $50 music voucher!
