ARIA Take 40 Chart Facts 30th March 2013 -- Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Land Third Consecutive Number One Single In Australia!

30 March 2013

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis land their third consecutive number one single in Australia this week as “Can’t Hold Us” (featuring Ray Dalton) rises one place to take out the top spot on the ARIA Singles Chart.

Not since Kylie Minogue in 1987/88 has an act had their first three singles all go to No.1 (“Locomotion”, “I Should Be So Lucky” and “Got to Be Certain”), and not since The Black Eyed Peas in 2009 has an act had three consecutive No.1 singles (“Boom Boom Pow”, “I Gotta Feeling” and “Meet Me Halfway”), with the last act to have three or more consecutive No.1’s being Delta Goodrem in 2002/2003 (she did it with six in a row {Delta’s first chart single was “I Don’t Care” which made it to No.64 in November 2001, a year before “Born to Try” hit No.1, thus her second to seventh releases were all number ones, not her first six}).

“Can’t Hold us” becomes the 1001st number one song in Australia (1940 to 2013) and the 439th for ARIA (1983 to 2013). It’s the fifth ‘Hold’ song at the top of the Aussie charts, the last one being from July 1995, “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” by U2, and the twelfth ‘Can’t’ to reach number one, the last of those being Kylie Minogue’s “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” (Sept 2001).

“Let Her Go” by Passenger jumped in at No.23 last week, but this week it zooms up twenty-one places to No.2 thanks to his current tour of the country after his initial shows for Ed Sheeran’s tour. Passenger’s album “All the Little Lights” returns to its original entry position of No.9 (5-March-2012) this week too.

After four broken weeks at No.1, Pink and Nate Ruess fall back three places to No.3 with “Just Give Me a Reason”, and falling back one place to No.5 is Rihanna and “Stay”. In between the girls are the duo of MKTO who leap up six places to No.4 with “Thank You”, whilst James Arthur is down three places to No.6 with “Impossible”.

Nelly climbs two places to a new peak of No.7 with his track “Hey Porsche”, but down three places to No.8 are Avicii and Nicky Romero with “I Could Be the One”. Pitbull and Christina Aguilera are also down three to No.9 with “Feel the Moment”, but scoring his sixth Top 10 entry is Calvin Harris with “I Need Your Love”, up six places this week to No.10. It’s also the first top ten hit for the vocalist on the track Ellie Goulding who had previously peaked at No.20 last November with “Anything Could Happen”.

After four weeks in the Top 10, Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” (HP-1x1) falls seven places to No.15, with Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man” down six places to No.17. With Justin Timberlake’s new album debuting at the top of the ARIA Albums chart this week, it also gives a boost to his current singles, as “Mirrors” jumps up fourteen places to No.12 and the albums first release “Suit & Tie” re-enters the Top 40 at No.30. Taylor Swift’s “22” (HP-22) rebounds ten places and is back up to No.24 this week.

After leaping into the Top 20 last week, The Stafford Brothers fall seven places to No.25 with “Hello”, and tumbling fourteen places to No.36 is Jason Mraz with “I Won’t Give Up”. Havana Brown’s “Big Banana” is up four places to a new peak of No.28 and moving up one spot to a new chart height of No.29 are Of Monsters and Men with “Mountain Sound”. Robert DeLong rises three places to a new peak of No.35 with “Global Concepts”, and after her national tour announcement recently, Rihanna’s “Diamonds” make a return at No.38.

The second Top 40 hit for British girl group Little Mix debuts at No.16 entitled "Change Your Life", it follows on from "Wings" (HP-3), both tracks taken from the album "DNA".

The eighth single (in Australia) released from Flo Rida’s “Wild Ones” album is the second highest new entry this week entitled “Sweet Spot” and featuring the guest vocals of Jennifer Lopez. “Sweet Spot” becomes Flo’s twenty-fifth chart entry and J Lo’s twenty-second entry.
