Gabriella Cilmi climbs back to the top of the Australian Singles chart this week. Having already peaked there five weeks ago for a single week, she waited patiently at No.2 for the past 4 weeks, and now she reclaims the top spot from Madonna, who's "4 Minutes" single falls to No.2 this week. Gabriella's album also debuts high on the album charts, but more on that in the album section below. The last such who waited more than two weeks to reclaim the No.1 spot was July/August 2005's "Lonely" by Akon, which went to No.1 for two weeks, then fell to No.2 for three weeks while Crazy Frog's "Axel F" was at the top, then he reclaimed the top spot for another single week. It's the 24th No.1 rebounder for this decade, and to put that into perspective, in the 90's it happened twice (both in 1996), and 11 times in the 1980's.
Within the Top 10 there are little movements, with Leona Lewis' "Better in Time" climbing two places for a third successive week, up to No.6 this week, and Newton Faulkner climbs back to his peak of No.5 (which he reached two weeks ago). "Perfect" climbs one to No.9, and "This Love" by The Veronicas becomes their third Top 10 single from their "Hook Me Up" album (No.26 this week), giving them three Top 10 from their two albums. The biggest climber into the Top 10 though is Usher's "Love in This Club" which zooms from the benefit of a physical single release during the week, and jumps from No.21 to No.8.
Usher isn't the only big climber, as "Take a Bow" by Rihanna is up 17 places to No.13, and will climb again for the next few weeks, as the CD Single is out next week. "Break the Ice" by Britney does benefit from it's physical release, climbing 15 places to No.23 this week, and "Yahhh!" by Soulja Boy is up 13 places to No.37.
The highest new entry is the former New Zealand No.1 single "No Air" by Jordin Sparks with Chris Brown. It's her second single to chart here, and "Tattoo" (former No.5) is one place higher at No.15 this week, with "No Air" coming in at No.16. It's only charting on downloads at the moment (No.9), but the CD Single is out today, so it'll climb again next week, most likely giving her two Top 10's in a row. Chris Brown is becoming this years Akon, as he is featured on the charts four times this week. No.11 "With You", No.16 with "No Air", "Kiss Kiss" (No.46) and he's also guesting on the No.41 single "Shawty Get Loose" by Lil' Mama.
Nelly was last on our charts in April 2006 with the No.11 single "Grillz", and this week he makes his return with 2007's top female chart performer, Fergie. "Party People" debuts at No.34 on downloads alone, and the physical release is due June 2nd.
Australia's own The Panics make their Top 50 debut at No.43 with "Don't Fight it", which they performed live on Rove last Sunday night, and is taken from their November 2007 No.18 album "Cruel Guard".
Andre Rieu stays at the top of the Australian Album charts for a second week with his and Mirusia's "Waltzing Matilda" album. This also breaks the one-week-wonder-at-No.1 that we'd been experiencing for the past eight weeks.
Usually the week after Mother's Day most of the albums which rose sharply last week fall dramatically the following week, but this year there is none of that, in fact some albums keep climbing, as most of the Top 10 moves gradually one or two places, and Kate Ceberano is the only non-debut entrant to the Top 10, moving up to No.9 with her "So Much Beauty" album.
The highest new entry is at No.3, and it's by this week's No.1 singles act, Gabriella Cilmi. "Lessons to Be Learned" is a line taken from her "Sweet About Me" single, and two weeks ago the album reached No.10 in the UK Charts (No.14 this past week). Expect this album to eventually go to No.1 (maybe even next week), and maybe she can tie up the top of both charts.
Australian group Pendulum made a small name for themselves in 1997 with the No.46 single "Coma", taken from the album "3 Knocks" (low 80's peak), but over the past couple of years they've been making a name for themselves in the UK, having had recent Top 10 chart action with the single "Propane Nightmares", and have just debuted in the UK Top 100 with "Blood Sugar"/"Axle Grinder". Those two tracks are taken from this week's No.16 debut "In Silico", welcome back boys.
Martha Wainwright's self-titled debut album didn't make the Top 50 here in Australia when it was released in March 2006, but her second album "I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too" has debuted at No.19 this week. She has now peaked higher than her brother (Rufus) and her father (Loudon III) on the Australian charts. Regards,

The above link is this weeks ARIA Physical Singles chart. It shows Pyscho Teddy falling from No.1 to No.20, so it's still charting, but not in the Top 50. When the Top 100 comes out on Tuesday I'll let you know where it is. Last edited: 19/05/2008 09:05
What's with PSYCHO TEDDY's psycho drop out of the Top 50!?
It's not the biggest fall from the Top 5 (notably, NIRVANA "About A Girl" in 1994 and FRANCESCA "Way Of The World" in 2002) but it's odd that a primarily downloaded song has fallen so much in one week.
If anyone knows why this happened, let us know and what number it fell to... I'm psycho for the Teddy!
It's only a primarily selling single. Not even registering in the Top 50 downloads, it was the No.1 selling single last week, but drops to No.20 this week. Ringtones are it's only downloads that I know of.
Die Teddy Die!! lol i hope these "songs" never pollute our charts again with just saturday sale No air managed 26 on physical chart with a whole weeks sales id love to see it climb higher then where tatoo was looks like no air american boy 4 minutes n sweet about me will be tough competitors for #1 in the next month. go buy NO AIR!!!
Firstly - Psycho Teddy is gone from the top 50. Good Ridance!
Second - After waiting for months and months and I had been thinking recently it would never happen Don't Fight It - The Panics has finally made the top 50, debuting at #43. Thanks for the national exposure Rove. Now we just may have a sleeper hit on our hands with the best Aussie tune of the year. This Perth act needs credit where due. We now just need Home & Away to put it on it's promo adds (Any chance of Kate Ritchie returning hehe )
Hopefully next week rihanna or usher will make it to number i love those songs so much..i encourage all of to download it or buy it..also like only a woman can is very good song too,hopefully it will make it to top ten..

American Boy --> Has been collecting digital sales for awhile now but was unable to chart due to record company. Should take top digital position and have strong first week sales of physical.
Sweet About Me --> With the album out sales will slowly start to decline for Gabriella along with the prospect of being a one hit wonder will lose #1 position due to the fact she will be spending 7th consecutive week in top 2.
4 Minutes --> All the more famous artists tend to sell by the bucket load and decide to bail early.
Dream Catch Me --> A certain one hit wonder for this decade, will peak this week before it begins it's downhill fall...
Low --> Age, with a swag of new releases it won't be able to withstand in the top end will still hang around for a bit but will start to be affected by new single "Elevator"
Love In This Club --> Australia is still yet to cotton on how great this song is will continue to the tp spot where it will sit for 2 weeks.
Take A Bow --> It's simple anything with her name on it turns to gold at the moment. May be hampered due to the fact it is the 5th installment from Good Girl Gone Bad.
No Air --> Chris Brown is the man of the moment also radio hasn't flogged it yet so rise is inevitable should go top 5 week after.
Better In Time --> Simple it can not amount to Bleeding Love which it is still sharing chart and radio space with. Add on the album Spirit and this song become stunted.
Bubbly --> Plain factor starting to wain. Also Kate Richie is gone from Home & Away awhile ago.
Psycho Teddy will re-enter simply because it's an annoying novelty song... if we hate it it won't go away...
Also note that Sam Sparro - Black & Gold will take #1 in the month of June...
There were four new entries inside the top 100 but outside the top 50 this week, they are...
#53 - Busta Rhymes & Linkin Park - We Made It --> To me this is a surprise debut... I don't know what to think of it at the moment. I believe it will stall just outside the top 50 this week.
#91 - Offspring - Hammerhead --> This song is going nowhere and fast... The boys need to split and retire!
#92 - Last Goodnight - Stay Beautiful --> Yet another non-stayer. Their recent premotion didn't help this to an earlier debut, can only mean one thing... Bargain Bin.
#93 - Cure - The Only One --> It's been awhile since last gracing the charts. I do believe there diehard fans will go out and buy the single physicly which in turn combined with digital sales could propel this just inside the top 50 next week.. [or i could be wrong!]
#1 Usher & Young Jeezy - Love In This Club. #2 Rihanna - Take A Bow. #3Estelle & Kanye West - American Boy. #4 Madonna, justin Timberlake & Timbaland - 4 Minutes. #5 Newton Faulkner - Dream Catch Me. #6 Jordin Sparks & Chris Brown - No Air. #7 Leona Lewis - Better In Time #8 Gabriella Cilmi - Sweet About Me #9 Flo Rida & T-Pain - Low. #10 Colbie Caillat - Bubbly.
Nate; I always like your additions to these threads. It gives me thinks to think about, and possibly take future info down another path when I'm researching the chartifacts each week. One thing though in your above explanation post, "Take a Bow" is not as yet the 5th single from her 'Good Girl Gone Bad' album. It's gonna be a bonus track on the re-issued 52nd week anniversary edition of the album. So that's probably why so many people are downloading it and soon buying it, as it's not on any of her albums as yet. I do also think that Psycho Teddy will rebound. When things take a sharp dive like this song did, it could mean deleted single or limited edition single, or even stock problems.
The next 10 downloads: 41 (38) - Yahhh! - Soulja Boy 42 (50) - Shawty Get Loose - Lil' Mama 43 (42) - What You're On - Rogue Traders 44 (36) - Touch My Body - Mariah Carey 45 (Ne) - We Made it - Busta Rhymes feat Linkin Park 46 (Ne) - Mercy - Duffy 47 (39) - Apologize - Timbaland 48 (44) - Kiss Kiss - Chris Brown 49 (Ne) - Homecoming - Kanye West 50 (48) - Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' - Michael Jackson
Here's my prediction for the top 20 songs next week:
#1. Lovesong - Sara Bareilles #2. 4 Minutes - Madonna #3. American boy - Estelle feat. Kanye West #4. Better in time - Leona Lewis #5. Work - Kelly Rowland #6. No air- Jordin Sparks feat. Chris Brown #7. Violet hill - Coldplay #8. Paralyzer - Finger Eleven #9. Break the ice - Britney Spears #10. In my arms - Kylie Minoggue #11. Green light - Beyonce #12. Party people - Nelly Feat. Fergie #13. Low Flo Rida feat. T-pain #14. It's a war - Dukes of Windsor #15. Sweet about me - Gabreila cilmi #16. Bubbly - Colby Calihat #17. Love in this club - Usher #18. Take a bow - Rihanna #19. Dream catch me - Newton Faulkner #20. Perfect - Vanessa Amorosi
there is no way beyonce will be able to gain that high position as she has been long gone from radio airplay plus no physical release of the year old song kylies song has been released phycially and flopped, i doubt there will be any much more impact it is unlikely usher rihanna will miss top ten and sarah and vanessa should be hanging on 10-13 i doubt it's a war will be in top 20 since dance music seemed to be hard to survive in aus charts, sorry but seems like u wished it to be no.1 as you commented in older posts and now you release it is unrealistic
btw mikas lollipop will only be released for radio promo
Dance music is not dead because last year Dukes of Windsor "The Others" made the top 10 and i thought it's a war would also be a big hit aswell. The reason I am saying that "Green Light" by Beyonce will be in the chart is I hear it played on the radio a lot. I never hear USher and Rihanna's new song on the radio
if you didnt hear usher n rihanna then i dont know what kind of station you listen to music being played on 2day nova is what's in and the people listening are the potencial cilents who are likely to buy what's being played
The radio stations I listen to are Triple J, Mix and Nova only for the motorola ARIA chart show ans sometimes the fox. I've only heard Rihanna's and Usher's new song on the motorola ARIA chart show only.
Will be an interesting chart this week. I reckon there will be ALOT of movement. I reckon the whole top 10 will be shuffled. I am listening to the countdown now and am looking forward to the top 10. Chris Brown & Jordin Sparks song will hit top 5 I reckon.
So the top 5 are not all songs that have peaked at #1. Should make for an interesting top 10. Glad Bubbly is dropping this week. Ok song, just over it. So Josh, Love Song could be #12 now that we know No Air is in the top 5.
