Jason DeRulo exits the Top 10 this week with his first ARIA Singles Chart hit, the No.5 track “Whatcha Say” (DL: 8 to 12), but compensates its fall by debuting at No.1 with his new single “In My Head” (DL: 1 debut). It becomes the 960th No.1 single in Australia, and the first time Warner Brothers and the label that both Iyaz and Jason are on (Beluga Heights) have swapped over the No.1 position in Australia. Jason’s single becomes Warner Brothers’ twelfth chart-topping single in Australia since Allan Sherman scored the first back in 1963.
“In My Head” is the third track to feature the word ‘head’ in its title, and the fifth ‘in my’ to make it to the top of the charts. Jason DeRulo is the 271st American solo Male Artist to make it to No.1, and the 628th American Performer to top our charts. The song also becomes the 89th song to debut at the No.1 spot, Vanessa Amorosi’s “This is Who I Am” being the last such debut. This song has surpassed its peaks in other countries, having reached No.9 in the US, No.5 in Canada and No.3 in New Zealand.
Iyaz and his track “Replay” (DL: 1 to 2) falls to No.2 after two weeks at the top, and Owl City and their former chart-topper “Fireflies” (DL: 2 to 4) breaks away from its two week stay at No.2 by falling to No.4. Last week’s big new entry by Taylor Swift “Today Was a Fairytale” (DL: 5 to 3) is up three places to No.3. Also last week David Guetta with Kid Cudi on “Memories” (DL: 3 to 6) and Ke$ha’s “Blah Blah Blah” (DL: 4 to 8, Phys: 15 debut) peaked at No.4 and No.3 respectively, but due to four entries to the Top 10 are pushed down to No.6 and No.7 respectively (again). And the final remnant of last weeks Top 10 to hold inside the Top 10 is Jay Sean’s “Do You Remember” (DL: 9 hold) which falls from it’s No.7 peak to No.10.
The Midnight Beast and their parody of “Tik Tok” (DL: 15 to 5) replaces that song in the Top 10 by jumping up nine places to No.5, whilst the original falls six places to No.11. With Rihanna in the country doing a promotional visit this past week, her latest track “Rude Boy” (DL: 17 to 7) jumps up nine places to give her back-to-back Top 10 singles from her “Rated R” album (up 14 places to No.21 this week). And the second biggest climber of the week is an artist who has graced our charts before as a part of her former girl group Girls Aloud, but this week scores her first ever Top 10 single, Cheryl Cole is up sixteen places to No.8 with “3 Words” (DL: 24 to 11), also putting Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am back into the Top 10 also.
NEW PEAKS: Gabriella Cilmi does a similar feat to her first singles chart run, moving up only slightly before a big jump next week, as “On a Mission” (DL: 18 to 15, Phys: 43 debut) is up to No.16 this week. Pitbull scores his fourth Top 50 entry by scoring the biggest leaping track of the week, up nineteen places to No.37 with “Shut it Down” (DL: 38 debut), and also breaking into the Top 50 are future tourist John Mayer with “Heartbreak Warfare”, up nine places to No.46 and recent tourists Florence + The Machine score their first EVER Top 50 single by moving up to No.50 with “You’ve Got the Love”.
The January 12th Haiti earthquake has spurned two songs covered by multiple artists, both of which debut this week on the charts. Debuting at No.18 (DL: 17 debut) is “We Are the World 25: For Haiti”, a remake of the 1985 famine relief song written by Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson which hit No.1 in April 1985. Featured artists on this new version include Michael and Janet Jackson, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Hudson, Josh Groban, Tony Bennett, Mary J. Blige, Barbra Streisand, Miley Cyrus, Enrique Iglesias, Wyclef Jean, P!nk, Usher, Celine Dion, Fergie, Toni Braxton, Carlos Santana and Kanye West amongst others. The track recently debuted at No.2 in the US Charts.
The second Haiti relief song is a cover of REM’s 1993 single “Everybody Hurts” (DL: 33 debut, Phys: 1 debut) performed by a collective calling themselves Helping Haiti. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown asked Simon Cowell to arrange a charity single to raise money for Haiti. The track has already reached No.1 in England and Ireland, and debuts at No.26 here. This version features vocals from Leona Lewis, Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey, Mika, Michael Buble, Jon Bon Jovi, Susan Boyle, Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams and Chrissie Hynde amongst other artists.
Michael Buble’s “Haven’t Met You Yet” (DL: 11 to 19) was possibly helped into the Top 10 a couple of weeks ago by being used in the Channel 7 promo’s for the then upcoming 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. Well the opening ceremony last weekend featured a stirring rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” (DL: 28 debut) performed by Canadian native k.d. Lang which this week enters the charts at No.19. Last week her best of “Recollections” entered at No.56, but this week jumps up to No.3, and this becomes her first charting single this century, having last appeared on the charts in December 1997 with her 1997 Australian Tour EP, which hit No.70. She did chart with this song in April of 2008, but that was only on the digital charts where it hit No.47.
Alicia Keys hit No.96 in late December of 2009 with the first single from her “The Elements of Freedom” (No.35 this week) album, and this week she debuts at No.42 with “Put it in a Love Song” (DL: 45 to 35) featuring guest vocals from Beyonce. She is also currently on the charts with Jay-Z as guest vocalist on “Empire State of Mind” (DL: 10 to 14) which leaves the Top 10 this week and is sitting at No.15.
Below Top 50: Only two new peaks below the Top 50 this week, k-os is up to No.59 with “I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman (Can’t Really Make You Love Me)”, and re-entering at No.90 and at the same time scoring a new peak is Miami Horror and their track “Sometimes”.
Timbaland debuts at No.62 with the second single from his “Shock Value II” album (No.61 this week) entitled “If We Ever Meet Again”, this one featuring guest vocals from Katy Perry. Chris Brown also enters with the second single from his latest album “Graffiti” (No.96 this week) called “Crawl”, which is in at No.67. The third R&B act below the Top 50 to debut this week is T-Pain at No.82 with “Take Your Shirt Off”.
Two artists who haven’t been on the charts for a couple of years, make debuts back to back this week. Train are in at No.72 with “Hey, Soul Sister”, their last chart appearance being 2003’s “Calling All Angels” which hit No.22, and this becomes their sixth charting single. Australian group Operator Please returns to the charts after almost two years absence with “Logic” debuting at No.73. They last hit No.93 in July 2008 with “Two for My Seconds”, and this new track is the fifth Top 100 entry.
Lady GaGa is at No.95 with “Just Dance” in its 78th week in the Top 100, one week away from tying the 79 week record set by Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack”. We’ll have to wait to see if it holds on for another week. Also mention should go to The Black Eyed Peas who fall to No.21 this week with “Rock That Body”, making it 46 weeks in the Top 20 for the group (“Boom Boom Pow” debuted April 6th, 2009), although will.i.am does appear on Cheryl Cole’s new track which jumps into the Top 10 this week.
Mumford and Sons hold for a second week at the No.1 spot on the ARIA Albums Chart with their “Sigh No More” album, whilst Susan Boyle starts her run at No.2 with her “I Dreamed a Dream” album, now in its second week at that position.
k.d. Lang has a long running career in this country for her album releases, and her first best of set “Recollections” charges from last weeks debut of No.56 up to No.3 this week. Helped by her performance at the opening ceremony of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics with her rendition of “Hallelujah”, which also enters the singles chart at No.19 this week.
Sade debuts at No.4 with their sixth studio album “Soldier of Love”, and their first chart entry since nine years, having last appeared on the charts in late February 2001 with the No.28 album “Lovers Rock”. And by debuting at No.4 (the same entry position they made in the UK last week), this becomes their highest ever placed album on the Australian charts, having peaked at No.6 in early 1985 with their debut album “Diamond Life” which was followed in late 1985 by their second Top 10 set “Promise”. Since then they have not graced our Top 10, until this week, just over twenty-five years later.
AC/DC’s tour has helped their ARIA Award winning album “Black Ice” to leap up twelve places to No.11. Their first collection of older tracks “Backtracks” is up twenty-two places to No.36, their first live album “Live” is up forty-three places to No.46, and their first No.1 album from 1980 “Back in Black” also climbs twenty-two places to No.57, and lastly they re-enter at No.97 with “The Razors Edge”, their 1990 No.3 album.
Other recent and future tourists benefit on the ARIA Albums Charts this week. Recent tourist Rob Thomas is up four places to No.13 with his ‘cradlesong’ album. Future tourist John Mayer’s “Battle Studies” is up eight places to No.20. Last week Rihanna did a promo tour, and that has helped her “Rated R” album to climb up fourteen places to No.21. Phoenix climb thirty-five places to No.40 with “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix”. George Michael re-enters at No.49 with the tour edition of “Twenty-Five”, and Gossip jump up twenty places to No.51 with their “Music for Men” album. Also recent tourist Cliff Richard is back in the charts at No.63 with his former partners The Shadows on “Reunited”. And not a tourist, but currently playing around the country, the “Valentines Day” soundtrack jumps up fifty-three places to No.41.
Fear Factory’s seventh album “Mechanize” debuts at No.24, two places higher than the entry position of their 2005 album “Transgression”. Also charting with their seventh album is Finnish band HIM and debuting at No.36 with “Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice”. This is their fourth Top 50 entry, and is now their second highest charting album behind 2007’s “Venus Doom” which peaked at No.32.
Other new entries to the album chart include Peter Gabriel in at No.59 with his eighth studio album “Scratch My Back”, and his first since 2002’s “Up”. Story of the Year enter at No.88 with their album “The Constant”. And lastly Lady Antebellum enter at No.93 with their new album “Need You Now”.

Glad the 3 songs I'm looking forward to charting have charted this week. Regarding the Haiti tracks, at the moment I'm leaning more towards the Helping Haiti track as being the 'better' one. The reason is that this track was always about helping Haiti. The We Are The World remake was always going to happen this year but they never said what they would be raising money for, then Haiti comes along and it seems like they have jumped on the bandwagon, so it doesn't sit as comfortably with me as the other track for that reason.
For a listening point of view while I have discovered the new rap in We Are The World wasn't as disturbing as I thought it would be I cannot forgive them for including artists who needed to use autotune while they relegated other artists into singing only in the group sing. There are also artists like Justin Bieber who should never have been given a solo as I don't think they'll have lasting legacies like the original solos. And while I get his emotional singing, Wyclef totally destroys the track for me. The big plusthe song has is that Michael Jackson is featured in it.
I'm also hoping the Helping Haiti track will help break some of those UK artists here in Oz, although I highly doubt there will be a flow on affect.
Sad that Beyonce is making another appearance on our charts.
I would just like her to take a break, make me actually miss her. I grow tired of artists who get oversaturated with endless music releases. I feel the same with Lady GaGa and Pink (who actually appears to have 'disappeared' lately). I also felt the same about Justin Timberlake and right now I'd be happy for him to make a return to our charts.
I don't really like when artists (P!nk and Beyoncé for example) have albums which they release so many singles from, and are all over the charts and the radio for up to 2 years... (except in Lady GaGa's case I'd like her always charting well ) Beyoncé could release a Greatest Hits EP with her past album, and a full GH with her past 3! Look at the singles: Beyoncé - (8) If I Were a Boy, Single Ladies, Halo, Diva, Ego, Sweet Dreams, B-H Girl, Video Phone P!nk - (8) So What, Sober, Please Don't Leave Me, Bad Influence, Funhouse, Ave Mary A, I Don't Believe You, Glitter In The Air
Diva & Ego were NOT released as a single here, I know Diva got some airplay but it was NEVER the official next single here..
we got: 1. If I were a Boy 2. Single Ladies 3. Halo 4. Sweet Dreams 5. B-H Girl 6. Video Phone
6 singles seems pretty standard for an album to me, when it's been as successful as it has. BTW Diva & Ego were part of a double release. Diva was sent to Urban while Halo went to Pop radio, Sweet Dreams went to Pop radio while Ego went to Urban. They never crossed over.
yeah i agree im sick of all the beyonce bashing on here. i love beyonce and think she deserves the attention she gets. jessica mauboy, pink.. these artists have had 6 singles from their latest efforts (radio now even playing ave mary a from pink which might be 7?) so why is she constantly 'single'd out. single ladies was my fav track of '09 and im only to happy to see it hang around the charts for ages. as with any artist that releases decent enough material to be able to acheive this.
That's my main issue with Single Ladies, that video sales are keeping it in the chart. I assume the video sales are the reasons for Lady GaGa still appearing in the lower end of the charts with her old hits. Jessica Mauboy doesn't annoy me with all her releases as her songs seem to only last around the 12-16 weeks in the Top 50. So they don't feel like they are there forever.
I think its great that albums these days can stick around on the charts longer thanks to the release of more singles. Take Beyonce's previous album for example, B'Day, which only spent 20 weeks in the Top 50, most of which was floating around the low 40's. Now look at her latest album, I Am... Sasha Fierce, which has spent 65 weeks in the Top 50 so far and is currently #24.
Jessica Mauboy's album 'Been Waiting' is another good example. It spent 58 weeks in the Top 50 thanks to six successful singles. Most of the Idol contestants albums only manage to stay in the chart for a few weeks because their follow-up singles are never as successful as their debut.
Sure people might be getting sick of songs lasting so long on the charts, but it simply proves that the song is still popular and deserves to stick around.
I have no problem with albums hanging around forever in the charts, it's when songs hang around forever in the charts. As a chart fanatic since 1992, I use to love when a song hit 20 weeks as it was a momentus occassion in my eyes, but these days it seems to be the norm that a song lasts for 20 weeks in the charts. It makes the chart seem very static, and I put the blame down to the digital revolution where technically people can purchase the same song a million different ways. When it was just physical people tended to only purchase one copy cause really who wants all those CD singles of the same song laying around. Today you can buy the CD Single (if lucky), a digital version from each of the legal stores and all the different versions that count towards the chart, then buy all the ringtones and then the videos. So in a way it's not a totally true representation of the most loved song.
I understand why ARIA had to go the way of the digital cause physicals weren't selling that well, but I just think by combining all these unnecessary things like ringtone and video, the chart doesn't reflect what people are really ejoying about the music of today. In the physical era of song selling songs like Poker Face, Single Ladies, SexyBack, Boom Boom Pow, Love Story would not have had massive chart runs in the Top 50 or Top 100. And I think that's why I tire of artists quickly these days. In the past when the new song was released the old one tended to drop off the charts, so in reality there was only one song by the artist in the chart at a time, meaning no oversaturation.
You just have to look at last week's chart to see how I Gotta Feeling is charting higher than Meet Me Halfway and Rock That Body, that is happening far to often for my liking compared to the old charts when it was more a oddity than a regular occurance. But as a chart enthusiast I guess I just have to evolve with the evolving charts and get over myself.
The cynic in me wonders how much Orianthi's success is a result of MJ's death. I had never heard of her until he died and my gut feeling says that if he was able to do his tour I still wouldn't have heard about the female guitarist on his tour. But I am glad the song is a success it is quite catchy
well i think he would of done MUCH better had he released crawl THAN i can transform ya
because you dont want your song after you bashed up your famous girlfriend to be something so upbeat with sexual lyrics, if he had come back with crawl, it would make sense for a more ballady song (rihanna came with russian roulette THAN hard - just saying) and then he could afford to go upbeat perhaps
BSB - There are singles artists and albums artists. You've probably noticed that there are many hard rock/metal, classical/jazz, opera etc. albums in the album charts, but the singles charts are mostly pop/rock/urban/dance.
So while out shopping for some parmesan cheese I was thinking about what debuted at #1 on the physical singles charts. My ultimate favourite guess was Helping Haiti but I doubt it, it's probably one of those lame bip bip bip bop bop bop songs of the moment.
Pitbull isn't featured on either of the Haiti charity singles? *lol* Oh, they are both such horrible, insipid covers, especially the "Everybody Hurts" one. Makes you appreciate how wonderful the original was.
Gossip-Love Long Distance Jessica Mauboy-Up/Down Hayley Warner-Good Day-live version or studio version Natalie Bassingthwaighte-Love Like This- (get one of the remixes or the metrophonic radio mix) Rihanna-Rude Boy
nice rise for Jess-with all the advertising on tv for radio she has at the moment,the rise was kind of expected for me-nice work!im really surprised that Jess's album has not gone to Double Platinum yet.Ridiculous if you ask me..and btw stan's album has only spent 9 weeks in top 50.Thats not that good.
Hmmm stoked that k.d. lang got Top 20 with her memorable performance of Hallelujah, but can't work out the 2nd track that is winter olympics based. And if memory serves me well, this is the first time a winter olympics related track has impacted on our charts.
Edited: Ah Buble makes sense, it was more a cryptic code for Canadian as opposed to a song from the games. Silly me. Last edited:
Hector - plenty of Summer Olympics songs have impacted on our charts.
1988 - You Are Not Alone 1992 - Amigos Para Siempre, Barcelona, I Don't Care Just As Long As We Beat New Zealand 1996 - Reach, The Power Of The Dream 2000 - Sail Down To Australia, The Winner Is... (both after Syndey won the games), We Are One, On A Night Like This, Bruce 2000 2004 - Helped Bond reach #1 on the charts after SEVEN used the track Explosive as their theme 2008 - Ready To Fly
This is the first time the Winter Olympics has inspired people to purchase a song.
I'd normally agree about covering Hallelujah, but this time it makes sense, she had already recorded it for a previous album, it was written by a Canadian, performed by a Canadian and it is meant to be about peace and was used in the segment where the 'doves' are released. I think it's one of the best versions of the song Last edited:
There is no live version of lang's performance of the song, it was a re-recorded version of the song from the album about some 49th Parallel. It just has some different orchestrations. And my understanding it's technically that re-recorded version that would get played.
One Moment In Time never charted on ARIAs chart in 1988. That's why I didn't mention it, even though it reached number one in the UK Last edited:
Oh I just wish Jason DeRulo would disappear from the charts forever. I find it pathetic and a big LOL when I saw the video clip of his new single. He had to remind people he was the same guy singing Whatcha Say by playing the song at the START and the END.
* Like Ke$ha, this peaked last week, and falls down a little. Although he is here next week for a tour, and his album is being reissued as a tour edition, so this song might not fall too much just yet.
* After a couple of weeks at No.2, the owl is still perched within the Top 5
* Sorry eveyone, I forgot to mention that Helping Haiti was the new No.1 Physical single of the week. And Butch Walker feat P!nk on "Here Comes the..." debuted at 6, but no Top 100 entry for this song (yet).

* The label Warner Brothers scores their twelfth No.1 here in Australia (as opposed to their subsiduary labels like Atlantaic, Reprise, WEA, Elektra and others). But it's the first time that they have swapped over the No.1 place. Moreso Iyaz and Jason DeRulo and labelmates on the Beluga Heights label, so that's a first too.
* Find out more chartifacts about this song when I post after 6:40 tonight.
I can't bash J. R. Rotem too much though. Even though the "J-J-J-JR" tags in so many songs that he produces gives me the willies, he did provide my #2 single of 2007 (Sean Kingston's "Me Love") and my #5 single of 2006 (Rihanna's "SOS").

@392 - I have no idea why they have as voted by Channel 10 and Video Hits. I imagine it's someone being cynical as it only appears next to people who appeared on Australian Idol and Delta Goodrem who was on Neighbours. Whoever did isn't smart enough to apply their cynicism to Kylie's efforts and her link to Neighbours or to Cosima and her Idol link. But don't worry, it has been fixed. Last edited:
Warners has issued their first CD single in Australia for over a year - Gabriella Cilmi's "On A Mission". I wonder why they've chosen this one? Is it because she's an Australian artist? They haven't bothered issuing anything by any other artist (Australian or otherwise) for the past year, so I wonder why they've released this one? Seems very odd.
Kmart still stock CD Singles!! in W.A!! but Big W and Target don't.
Yes i will be buying Gaby's cd single "On A Mission", it could be the last cd single for this new decade!
Currently #20 on Itunes, will "On A Mission" ever peak in the Top 10??
Hopefully "Today Was A Fairytale" by Taylor Swift, is going to be released as a physical!! the song isn't featured on the deluxe version of "Fearless", but i think it's on the "Valentine's Day" movie soundtrack?
"Telephone" by Lady Gaga and Beyonce, should rise to the Top 10!! next week. Video clip delayed??
"If We Ever Meet Again" Timbaland & Katy Perry is expected to finally enter the Top 50 week!! currently #39 on Itunes!
@ Chris, haha as much as im not a fan of Imma Be, i have to stick up for Rock That Body, coz it hardly "tanked" given the gold accreditation and it still being at number 21 on the Aria Chart... Just my thought process
It can't be tanking all things considered. To gain a 4th top ten hit after all the fans already own the album suggest this song deserves it's own 'hit' status, far from tanking I think.
By the way no-one has been gain to predict the chart peak of Imma Be. I will start by saying top 20, however I will stop short of saying top ten at this stage, just too much hard work for a 5th single and most people own the album and although it is more r'nb sounding than Rock That Body I don't think it is quite as good. Last edited:
Imma Be could be a strong contnder for the top spot in the next few weeks. The only thing that could prevent it from happening is the fact that the album has already sold very well. It's gone from #128 to #58 within the past couple of days on iTunes. Definately a song to watch, along with Hey, Soul Sister, the Tik Tok parody & If We Ever Meet Again.
Completely agree Innocent Eyes, I think Imma Be will definately go top 5 , #1 will be quite hard but you never know! The Tik Tok parody is really surprising me, its getting VERY close to #1 on itunes but i think Jason will get a second week at the top.
I actually think Train may reach #1, its shooting up very quick, its definately gonna be top 3....and it wouldnt surprise me if Timbaland/Katy Perry follow up their NZ #1 with an Australian one too (though its a little early to tell, i fully expect it to be top 10 on itunes by the end of next week)

everything has another version in the top 100 nearly.... there's another version of '3 Words' that's risen to #74 , there's another version of 'Rude Boy' @ #81, another of 'Replay' at #94, another 'Memories' @ #32.. Even Blah Blah Blah is at #13 but at #104..
Thats probably the difference between the Single version and Album versions of all those songs you just mentioned. Richard Vission had two versions in the chart not long ago, one around 2:22 (which was around #100 at the time but now at #68) and the other nearly 4 mins (I have the longer one on my computer) which is now at #18. The first one is the single version and the latter is from the ministry of sound album.
