Jan 7th

There was a bit of a challenge for the top spot, but it wouldn't really be the best time to change hands just yet, not when "The Opener" has almost singlehandedly started another dialogue about female representation of festival line ups. So it's two weeks at #1 for Camp Cope, as they fend off BROCKHAMPTON's now outright highest charter "BOOGIE" which rises to #2, pushing Kira Puru back to #3 with "Tension". N*E*R*D & Kendrick Lamar continue their hasty ascent with "Don't Don't Do It!" now at #4, while King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have their first ever top 5 with "Crumbling Castle" at #5. Rising into the top 10 this week we've got two new songs, with Baker Boy's "Marryuna" up 5 places to #7, and Jess Locke's "Violent Turn" up 3 to #8, the first top 10 entry for both of these artists.


January is always a slow time, but by some miracle I do manage to kick things off with a song that actually came out in 2018. It's the first time in the chart for the ever-so-wacky Superorganism, whose new single "Everybody Wants To Be Famous" was rather instant with me, coming in at #30.
Next up for something different, here's some Australian metalcore. I may or may not be influenced by their entertaining instagram posts that I've been seeing for reasons, but also Polaris do the job of having a clean vocalist that doesn't sound dreadful and instead rather good. So we've got a super late new entry for "The Remedy" at #35, their first chart entry.
Our sole debuting veterans go quite far back, though they don't have many entries to their name, this being only their 4th. They first charted in 2008 though, they're just slow to release new albums. Nonetheless for the first time since 2014, I welcome Augie March back to the chart with their oddly titled "Bootikins" at #38.

The Opener is a great #1 and BOOGIE would be a fab replacement. Great to see Everybody Wants To Be Famous debut and Lemon still moving upwards.
Jan 14th

If you are in need for a good time, I have just the little ditty for you, as those lovely gents in Brockhampton have scored themselves their first #1 hit with a song called "Boogie", certainly befitting of this tone. Also BREAK NECKS, I'M THE CHIROPRACTOR, COME ON DOWN, YOU KNOW I GOT YA. Nonetheless this is our first new #1 of the year, as it replaces 2017's carry over #1 from Camp Cope who are down to #2. N*E*R*D continue to see new heights with their Kendrick Lamar collaboration "Don't Don't Do It!" which is up to #3, and in fact all their stuff is up this week. Kira Puru's "Tension" slides to #4, while Baker Boy can proudly sit at #5 with "Marryuna". Two big former #1's leave the top 10 this week, and so replacing them, we have yet another BROCKHAMPTON tune, that being "ZIPPER" up to #6 to be their 4th top 10 hit, while Kelsey Bulkin is charting there for the first time with "West Coast Drama" at #10. Nothing But Thieves will be hoping to see "I'm Not Made By Design" climb as it has so far matched "Broken Machine"'s unlucky peak of #11.


Not a busy week for debuts as I have not had new music on my mind, but we do have a few, and one of them actually came out this year. That is the top debut, and it's from MGMT, who actually have "Little Dark Age" dropping out this week so they've replaced it with their 3rd single from their upcoming album, "Hand It Over" at #33. This album hasn't been released but it's already landed as many entries as "Congratulations" did. All up, they now have 12 entries to their name.
Next up we have a big 2016 one hit wonder finally shedding that status on this chart, with Wafia getting her first chart entry since the big top 5 hit "Love Somebody". This time she's out on her own for "Only Love" which debuts at #36.
And lastly because we can never have enough N*E*R*D around, they have a debut out of order because this one took longer to grow on me, but now they've got 3 entries courtesy of Future collaboration "1000" at #38. This is Future's 2nd entry, after 2015's "Jumpman".

Great debut for MGMT! Is this Samsaruh run the longest you've ever had? I think it's getting close
Jan 21st

2 weeks at #1 for "BOOGIE" and the top 3 remains static, with Camp Cope at #2, and N*E*R*D at #3. Moving up however is Baker Boy to #4 with "Marryuna", while BROCKHAMPTON get another song in the top 5 with "ZIPPER". Just one mover into the top 10 this week, with Nothing But Thieves finally getting a 2nd top 10 hit in "I'm Not Made By Design" at #9.


Getting slightly better at moving into the new year as we've got 3 new entries that all were released this year. The first of which is a not very long awaited return to the chart for Sarah Blasko just 2 weeks after her previous single last charted. And incidentally, this new one gives her a new chart height yet again, as "A Shot" goes in all the way up at #13. It's her 3rd charting single to date.
Now we've got what is surely the longest gap between charting entries, as it has been 9 and a half years since Cog last graced this chart. Largely because they hadn't released anything in that time. Now they're back in all their dodgy facial hair glory, with new track "The Middle" coming in at #23. They previously charted at #1 & #2 with "Say Your Last Goodbye" and "Are You Interested?", so this is their 3rd charting entry to date.
Lastly we've got a debutant that probably shouldn't be but I missed the boat before hand. Kali Uchis of course contributed to Tyler, The Creator's wonderful "See You Again" last year, and that song has now been quoted by Bootsy Collins of all people on the intro to her new song "After The Storm", which Tyler incidentally appears on. He's the only chart veteran here, as he picks up his 2nd appearance with this in at #34.

BOOGIE is an excellent #1 obvs. I quite liked A Shot when I listened to it. I'd be curious to try the new Cog single but their music isn't on Spotify & there's no video of it or anything.
Jan 28th

Not much to say near the top, as there still ain't no stopping "BOOGIE" tonight as it notches week 3 at #1. The Opener retains #2 while Baker Boy moves up to #3 with "Marryuna", pushing N*E*R*D & Kendrick Lamar down to #4. BROCKHAMPTON also hold #5 with "ZIPPER". Moving into the top 10 this week we have Sarah Blasko with her first ever top 10 hit "A Shot" at #8, while Superorganism, Cog, MGMT & Kali Uchis are also doing 2018 music proud with big gains this week.


Still not super busy on this front as I have been super busy on other fronts! Leading this week's brief charge we have yet another Camp Cope song that takes its name from a random tangent in the song that almost seems irrelevant to the rest of it. "How To Socialise & Make Friends" debuts at #27 and is the band's 3rd charting entry, though it remains to be seen whether it can continue their streak of top 10 peaks. It also remains to be seen if Flobots will release a diss track about it.
Lastly we have a super fresh debuting band which is yet another one who have released very little music in the near decade that I've been running this chart. You could say that for Maynard in general though I did rather like the Ashes Divide track "The Stone" at the time despite not charting it. So this is his first time ever appearing on the chart, alongside A Perfect Circle with "Disillusioned" #32.

BOOGIE! I like the debut for Only Love two weeks ago, would be cool if it got a lot higher than it currently is. Also I love that Camp Cope song title. The song is nice too.
Feb 4th

It's four weeks at the top for our boys in blue, "BOOGIE" remaining ever so dominant, scoring rave reviews in the process. Camp Cope also continue to do very well with "The Opener" at #2 yet again, while Baker Boy maintains #3. BROCKHAMPTON aren't remotely done yet as they still have 5 songs on the chart, the 2nd of which is "ZIPPER" which moves up to #4. Also moving up we have Sarah Blasko at new heights with "A Shot" now taking #5, while notably having been the highest song released this year each week since debut. The next highest of those comes from Superorganism, whose "Everybody Wants To Be Famous" climbs to #9, becoming their first top 10 hit, and proving that having too many members in your band is a good recipe for success here. Meanwhile we've got Cog gunning for their first top 10 hit in nearly a decade with "The Middle" now at #12, while MGMT have surpassed the peak of previous single "When You Die", as "Hand It Over" has been a slow grower, but now is up to #15.


2018 is starting to heat up by which I mean I had time to actually listen to the New Music Friday playlist this week. Mind you only 1 of these songs I discovered directly through that but there may be more splashing in soon. Top of the list is actually a song I discovered on the radio, and it's a debut to the chart for Ok Sure who you might remember for winning a Hermitude remix competition some years back. I don't know if I've heard anything she's put out since then until now, but "Sorry" makes a strong impression as it leads the pack at #17.
Now for an artist that is much less new to the chart, we have the always welcome return of CHVRCHES. They've amassed a considerably amount of success here including 2 #1 hits, and they'll hope to continue that for a 3rd album cycle. Lead single "Get Out" comes in at #24 and is their 9th song to chart.
Back to the newbies, and you can't get much more new than this because unless this is a secret rebranding, this artist put out their very first song this Friday. That artist is LOVA who I believe comes from Sweden, and has surely put out the first ever song that can be described as post-"Bad Liar". That's obviously a good recipe and "You Me and The Silence" lands at #28.
It's been an all female led week so far but we have to break that up for the next entry, or maybe not because it took an added female artist to really give the song the needed spark, honestly the original version sounds so incomplete now. If those vague clues aren't enough and you haven't caught wind of it in the corner of your eye yet, I am talking about Bruno Mars' song "Finesse" as appended with Cardi B to tremendous effect, debuting at #31. Through sheer persistence, this is now Bruno's 5th song to chart, while it's the first time in for Cardi B whose "Bodak Yellow" peaked at #54 last year.
Lastly we have another artist with 5 entries to their name, though they were amassed at a much faster rate. Here I am talking about Middle Kids who of course burst out in the scene with the huge hit "Edge Of Town" and have continued to chart further singles since. The latest of which is "Mistake" which seems to be being marketed as the lead single to their debut album even though "Edge Of Town" and "Never Start" are both on it. "Mistake" comes in at #36.

Get Out was nice the one time I've listened to it so far and I can certainly endorse Finesse debuting. BOOGIE still at #1 is great and I love that Everybody Wants To Be Famous is in the top 10. I like that Only Love is hanging in there as well.
Feb 11th

Feb 11th

5 weeks now for "BOOGIE" at the top spot. Various forms of dancing are very much in vogue as now "Marryuna" is up a spot to #2. The moderately less dance-able "A Shot" is up 2 spots to a new peak of #3, pushing "The Opener" down to #4. Jumping up into the top 5 this week is Superorganism, with "Everybody Wants To Be Famous" up 4 spots to #5. The top 10 also has two new arrivals, firstly last week's big debut for Ok Sure, which bolts up 9 places to #8 to give her and Tanzer their first top 10 hit with "Sorry", while Cog get their long awaited third top 10 through "The Middle" which climbs to #10 this week.


MGMT are truly experiencing a renaissance of sorts lately, and their latest album "Little Dark Age" is seeing strong reviews. It's also doing very well here as they now have 4 songs on the album which have reached this chart, all making the top 20 barring this new debut for the time being. Scoring a 13th chart entry to date now, "Me And Michael" comes in at #21.
This week we've got two artists breaking vague one hit wonder status at the same time. Although it doesn't feel like it, What So Not is only charting for the 2nd time now with "Stuck In Orbit", having previously hit the top 20 in 2015 with "Gemini". It's also a return to the chart for featured BUOY who previously charted in 2016 with "Clouds & Rain". "Stuck In Orbit" comes in at #24 this week as the sole Australian debut.
To offset that, the next two debuts are from new artists. The first of which I have vaguely heard of before because they've collaborated with Kygo. Instead of that though, Sasha Sloan appears here on her own with "Normal" at #30.
Finally we have what is probably the only artist to appear on this chart that has relished a Jacob Sartorious co-sign. Though that's rather unfitting for the song which is old school in its lyrics, music, and title. Josie Dunne's debut single "Old School" debuts at #35.

Oooh nice to see Stuck In Orbit. Marryuna would be a fantastic new #1 and I also like that Everybody Wants To Be Famous, How To Socialise And Make Friends and Finesse have moved up too.
Feb 18th

I'm sliding my way into 2018 but that will not stop the "BOOGIE" for the time being as BROCKHAMPTON notch up 6 weeks at the top. There's some fresh competition this week, as Sarah Blasko takes "A Shot" up a spot to #2, while Superorganism call the shots with "Everybody Wants To Be Famous" up 2 spots to #3. Baker Boy resides at #4 this week followed by Ok Sure climbing up to #5 with "Sorry". MGMT score a second top 10 hit from "Little Dark Age", and 9th overall with "Hand It Over" up to #10 this week. Perhaps they can get yet another one as "Me And Michael" is bolting up 7 places to #14 this week.


We start things off with an artist that hasn't been seen in the chart since 2015, the only time she had been seen in the chart. I am talking about Courtney Barnett who is poised to release her second album and has so far dropped the track "Nameless, Faceless". It actually instantly becomes her best performing track as it debuts at #19, giving her 3 chart entries to date.
Unless I'm forgetting something, history is potentially being made here as we have an artist charting with a song that shares the same name. That artist is XL Recordings' boss who goes by Everything Is Recorded, and naturally the song is "Everything Is Recorded", which just like his last 2 chart entries, features Sampha, but this one also features Owen Pallett. His 3rd chart entry overall, and Sampha's 4th, "Everything Is Recorded" comes in at #22.
I make my love of Beach House no secret, especially considering that they have had a top 10 hit as recently as last year through their B-Sides & Rarities compilation. Now we're up to the main course though, so they've pulled up with a "Lemon Glow" at #27, which is their 9th chart entry to date.
Lastly is the artist I know the least about, and they don't even seem to have the luxury of suspiciously high Spotify play counts, even though they probably could with this sound. US artist Linney enters for the first time with her track "Outta My Heart".

wait what, I did not see Finesse there! Also gave A Shot a listen today and that had potential
Good to see A Shot, Everybody Wants To Be Famous, Get Out, Stuck In Orbit and Finesse all move up.
Feb 25th

We've been getting riled up for 7 weeks now with "BOOGIE" still in charge. For the time being it's holding off "A Shot" at #2 and "Everybody Wants To Be Famous" at #3. Ok Sure continues to climb with "Sorry" now up to #4, swapping places with "Marryuna" which is now at #5. There are also two new songs cracking the top 10 this week, both familiar faces to the area, not least of which because for Camp Cope, they now have two songs in there simultaneously. "How To Socialise & Make Friends" is up to #8 and is the band's 3rd top 10 hit, while for CHVRCHES, "Get Out" climbs to #10 and is their 4th top 10 hit.


Slightly busy week here as we've got 5 songs crashing in. The first of which was only released less than 48 hours ago, and it's a long awaited return to the chart for Janelle Monáe, who previously appeared alongside fun. on top 10 hit "We Are Young" back in 2012, and hasn't been seen since. Now she's back and striking out solo, with the instantly gratifying "Make Me Feel" at #19.
In fact all of the artists appearing this week have never done so in lead credits, the next of which is Press Club, a band I've definitely been aware of for some time but they haven't really been on my radar. "Suburbia" is right up my alley however, and gives the band their first ever entry at #24.
Migos have come close to charting on their own (well, with Lil Uzi Vert) with "Bad and Boujee", but until now their only charting appearance was on "Slide" (as well as Quavo's always iconic appearance on "Pick Up The Phone"). Things have changed as now "Stir Fry" takes charge and enters at #29.
Time for random Spotify discovery land, and we have a single that partially caught my attention because the artwork/singer looks like a character in a visual novel I like, but also because the song is good, probably. Au/Ra's "Panic Room" is her debut to the chart at #36.
We end things on some redemption, as none of these artists got closer to charting previously as Rhye did. 2017's "Count To Five" ended up getting all the way up to #42 last month. Not to be distraught, they've come through this time with "Feel Your Weight" at #39, which I can't confidently say is a better song at this stage, but it definitely had better timing.

Mar 4th

2018 is well and truly under way as we've finally got a #1 single that was released this year. It's been a long time coming, but Sarah Blasko finally has a #1 hit courtesy of "A Shot" moving up a spot from #2 last week. So after a healthy 7 week stint at the top, "BOOGIE" moves down to #2. Otherwise, stability continues around the top, with Superorganism's "Everybody Wants To Be Famous" at #3 and Ok Sure's "Sorry" at #4. Moving into the top 5 this week is Camp Cope, who turn their perfect top 10 record into a perfect top 5 record with "How To Socialise & Make Friends" at #5. It sits amongst a healthy run of Australian entries, making up 5 of the top 7 tracks. Also this week, MGMT add to their mammoth collection of top 10 hits, as their 10th becomes "Me And Michael" at #8.


Coming at me with a surprise is the top debut of the week, a song that I had no idea what it would sound like, nor that I would like it as much as I do. It's the first time into the chart for Let's Eat Grandma, same case going for SOPHIE who had a hand in the track, only previously reaching #65 last year with "9 (After Coachella)". The track that pulls it off is "Hot Pink" coming in at #21.
Next we continue the legion of upbeat, bass heavy pop songs that have really become a tour de force lately. Especially in regards to bringing in new artists to the chart. The latest is Cyn, whose "Alright" is an instant hit for me and enters at #28.
Now after some newbies, we've got a chart veteran returning to the fray. This time around I'm referring to Kimbra, who has notched up many entries since first appearing in 2011. While she's yet to reach past heights, she's making her presence felt on the chart with her latest material, now onto her 2nd debut from her upcoming album. It's also a bit of a sonic shift for her as we have a very gentle ballad in "Version Of Me" debuting at #33. This is her 11th chart entry to date.
Lastly is another veteran artist, though without quite the consistent success as they've only cracked the top 20 once to date. This time I'm talking about Stonefield who notch up their 7th chart entry with "Far From Earth" at #36, their first time in the chart since 2016's "Changes".

Great new #1 with Blasko, can easily see why it's there. Me And Michael is... decent, but tbh still haven't quite got into some of the record. Nice moves for Barnett, Monae, Beach House and of course Migos.
Nice debuts for Stir Fry and Make Me Feel last week. Sarah Blasko at #1 is nice and I like that Everybody Wants To Be Famous is still hanging in the top 3 as well. Good to see rises for How To Socialise & Make Friends, Make Me Feel, Stuck In Orbit and Stir Fry this week.
Mar 11th

Stability at the top, as "A Shot" defies its singular title and gets a 2nd turn at #1. "BOOGIE" also retains the #2 spot but that's pretty much all that hasn't changed since last week. Ok Sure climbs further with "Sorry" at #3, while Camp Cope's "How To Socialise & Make Friends" also moves to #4. Superorganism are on the slide with "Everybody Wants To Be Famous" at #5. New to the top 10 are two artists that have never been there, firstly Everything Is Recorded, who got very close but not quite with "Show Love" that peaked at #11, but now "Everything Is Recorded" bolts to #7. Also with slightly more extended history, Courtney Barnett is at an all new height of #10 with "Nameless, Faceless".


It's a big week for new entries as we really get settled into 2018, in fact there are only 7 tracks that debuted in 2017 left in the chart. Helping that is what has been a very fruitful few weeks of new music lately or more the fact that I've been listening to it. Coming in atop the pile for this week is a new track from Jon Hopkins, who charted just once back in 2014 with the vocal version of "We Disappear" reaching the top 20 ("Breathe This Air" unfortunately only made the top 50). His brand of slightly headache enducing electronica continues to hold up strong in 2018, and this time we've got a non-vocal track from him to both mix things up and also make sure I have some sort of instrumental track in my end of year lists. "Emerald Rush" is his 2nd entry to date, in at #20.
I almost forgot to put this in the chart but it helps that they had another song already charting to remind me of this. So anyway, Beach House are releasing their 7th album, "7" in a couple months, and now we've got a 2nd track from it to tide over, this one comes with a 2nd half switch up so of course you'll want to compare it to "DNA.". "Dive" is Beach House's 11th chart entry and is in at #21.
I belatedly realised last week that I've had an impressive streak of having at least 1 Australian debut on the chart every week for the past 6 months. Now that I've noticed it, I don't know how much longer it'll last, but contributing to it this week is Maddy Jane, who released a goss-worthy EP recently that features the super fun jam "Ideal", her first song to chart here as it enters at #25.
For the 2nd chart comeback this week, we've got Years & Years, who picked up 3 pretty big hits between 2014 & 2015, hitting the top 10, specifically #9, twice. Having been gone for a while I wasn't sure how receptive I'd be to the comeback, but suffice to say that I'm more into Olly's singing than ever, or at least new single "Sanctify" is showcasing it very well, and it gives them a 4th entry at #28.
Next up is an artist that is very new to me though it seems that they haven't released much at all before this. It's a very good first impression though for Liv Lovelle, whose "All That Matters" is an instantly receptive pop tune with a jazzy flourish in the instrumental. It enters at #30 this week.
Lastly, an artist who I have very much been aware of for a while, just hasn't been able to crack the major leagues of the chart. Amber Mark did however get some success, and it was close to 2 years ago that "Space" entered my chart to eventually peak in the top 50. "Love Me Right" however has gone one further and gives her a first time top 40 entry at #37.

It's 3 weeks now at #1 for "A Shot". Heading up the competition now is Ok Sure with her first ever entry "Sorry", which is now up to #2. BROCKHAMPTON's "BOOGIE" slides to #3, while Camp Cope hold at #4. Moving into the top 5 is Everything Is Recorded, with "Everything Is Recorded", a phrase that I never get tired of writing. Also making a big move this week is Press Club, whose "Suburbia" was their first ever entry and now their first top 10 hit.


It's an all-Australian affair this week. First up is the most familiar artist of the lot to the chart, at least in terms of her own songs. Courtney Barnett is currently sitting and possibly thinking in the top 10 with "Nameless, Faceless", and now that song has some company not much further down, as the much more mellow "Need A Little Time" comes in at #17. It's her 4th chart entry to date.
Next up is the only other veteran to the chart, as Nicole Millar picks up a new entry. She has charted 3 times prior to this, though only once as a lead artist. It remains to be seen how "Gimme A Break" will emulate past successes, but it starts off at #29.
Doing what I like to call the Stella Donnelly effect, in which I didn't seek out the artist's music because their promotion seemed to mislead me into thinking I wouldn't be into it, we have CLEWS. "Museum" comes packing a fair amount of energy and strong melodic foundation, and comes in at #34.
Next we have an artist whose promotion and name could have put me off of them if it was what I encountered first, but Approachable Members Of Your Local Community are lucky I heard the music first. Their newest single "Semiotic Vision" pulls the classic "Audacity Of Huge" by repeating a seemingly nonsense phrase that is weirdly catchy to strong effect. It's in at #37 for their first entry ever.

The long runs at #1 continue as "A Shot" notches 4th week at #1. It heads up the first all Australian top 3 as Ok Sure resides at #2 and Camp Cope move up to #3. Saying it's the first all Australian top 3 of the year also means that I should say it's the first top 3 without "BOOGIE" which is down to #5, overtaken by Everything Is Recorded's self titled song "Everything Is Recorded" at #4. Two more songs move into the top 10 this week, firstly Courtney Barnett who replaces herself in the top 10, as latest single "Need A Little Time" gets higher than she's ever been before at #7. Also getting a 2nd top 10 hit is Janelle Monáe as "Make Me Feel" moves up to #9.


It's another busy week for new entries as there are 5 this week, all but one coming from artists who have never charted prior. First of which is a local artist whose upcoming surely has a lot of tenure for this chart. Firstly the fact that the band is called Moaning Lisa and takes inspiration from Wolf Alice, and also now their song "Carrie (I Want A Girl)" which oozes in said inspiration, and also namedrops several artists who've appeared on this chart. It does so in a trolly way to make you think at the start it might be about Kardashians but it's actually Kim Deal & Courtney Barnett. Anyway, this rollicking number comes in at #22.
Next up is I suppose the artist here I'm most familiar with, but never charted before despite having put out some tracks I did like. Fortunately for James Bay(!) he has caught my attention properly with the fiery number "Pink Lemonade" in at #30.
Next is an artist I should have heard of because they seem to have gotten plenty of airplay recently but I seem to have missed it. So my introduction to Liza Anne was with the song "Panic Attack", which fills in a quota for 'panic' songs as "Panic Room" just dropped out, as it comes in at #35.
Next is Australia's favourite crooner of strange things, with the strangely named, but oddly ambitious and uplifting "Blue Batmans" finally creeping in at #38.
Lastly we've got an artist I can provide some chart history for as CHVRCHES have been all over this chart for the past 5 years. So much so that they just picked up their 10th chart entry with "My Enemy", including guest vocalist Matt Berninger who has actually had 10 entries of his own in the past alongside both The National and EL VY.

Apr 1st

For another week there is no change at the top, and "A Shot" now notches up 5 weeks at the top. That might be changing very soon as we've got a new contender making a big charge to the top, as Courtney Barnett's highest ever charting single just keeps getting higher, "Need A Little Time" now up to #2. It pushes back "Sorry" which goes back to #3, while "Everything Is Recorded" by Everything Is Recorded manages to hold the #4 spot. Camp Cope finish off the top 5 with "How To Socialise & Make Friends" at #5. Lower down in the top 10 this week, we have Janelle Monáe hitting #8 with "Make Me Feel", the same peak reached for "We Are Young" 6 years ago. There's also a new mover into the top 10, as Beach House score their 7th top 10 hit in "Dive". Including their B-sides collection, they've scored at least 1 top 10 hit from their last 5 albums.


A lighter week for debuts as we've got just the two, however they are notably two artists that have never charted before. The first is primarily because I'd never heard of them before. I also didn't know until today that they were Australian, and a triple j Unearthed artist for that matter because of how well produced this track is. But I must give a hand to Eleanor Jacks for making a very strong first impression on "Boys" at #26.
Now for an artist that has perhaps been waiting a little longer for their time to shine. I can't believe I'm saying this but DMA's have entered the chart. Does it still sound like '90s UK guitar rock? Absolutely! But I find myself drawn in with this one, which is loaded with strong melodies that play well together. Could it be turning a new leaf for them? Nonetheless, "For Now" comes in at #32.

Nice to see Chvrches up a little, as well as Years & Years and Janelle Monae doing quite well. Hopefully they can impact the top 5 soon!
Apr 8th

We're entrenched in April and just now comes the 2nd 2018 release to get to #1. It also provides many an opportunity to make terrible puns for however long it remains at #1 because the title this week goes to Courtney Barnett with "Need A Little Time". It swaps places with "A Shot" which ends its 5 week run at #1 and moves to #2. "Sorry" still holds its #3 spot, but we now extend to a fully Australian top 4 as Press Club are up 2 places to #4 with "Suburbia". Finishing off the top 5 is "Everything Is Recorded" at #5. New into the top 10 this week is the bane of my last.fm scrobbling life, Maddy Jane's "Ideal" up a spot to #10. There's quite the waiting line behind her though with Years & Years, Moaning Lisa, Jon Hopkins & Nicole Millar perhaps eager to break into the top 10 as well.


One might say that serendipity is trying to create a microwave that you can activate with your mobile phone, but in my humble opinion it is more like being involved in a minor car crash and having that be responsible for hearing the highest new entry this week. Because that's exactly what happened a couple days ago, so many thanks to the person who requested it when I happened to be listening to the radio. Hoodboi makes his first ever entrance to the chart, thanks in no small part to Tkay Maidza. She has charted 5 times before, and this is actually her 3rd time reaching the top 15, but she's yet to crack the top 10. "Glide" could possibly be the song to do it for her, as it enters at #15.
Just a few weeks ago I was moderately bothered to see a song plucked from obscurity in order to get some primo advertising space on Spotify. I am someone who is not particularly fond of artificially driven hit songs, but I'm also not strong willed enough to boycott them from my listening. That's not the best way to introduce a new entry, which is a rather lovely ode to the tribulations of secret queer love. It's also another entry into the canon of hit songs named after years, King Princess's first ever chart entry, "1950" at #27.
Next up we have Kali Uchis who just released a new album this weekend, which previously netted her the top 20 hit "After The Storm" here. Following that up, we have "Just A Stranger" which features The Internet's Steve Lacy appearing here on his first ever solo foray. "Just A Stranger" is in at #31.
Speaking of newly released albums, we can go one week further back for Kacey Musgraves' latest album which is getting rave reviews. I have particularly taken to the song "Velvet Elvis" and it becomes her first ever chart entry at #33.
Now, we all know that e's are good, but the real question has always been, 'is Ebenezer good?' The answer may be yes because he is entering this chart for the first time, featuring on the latest single from Duke Dumont, "Inhale" at #36. It's been a while for Duke Dumont who hasn't been seen on the chart since 2015's "Ocean Drive", but this is now his 4th chart entry.
Finishing things off we've got the return of A.B. Original who had strong success on the turn of 2016 & 2017, notably a top 10 hit in "January 26". They're back now with their 3rd chart entry, "Blaccout" at #39.

The top 2 songs are definitely my favourite 2 in the top 10, but it's great to finally see Courtney on top! Good moves for Jon Hopkins, Approachable Members and Beach House. Also, oh for hearing a song in crappy circumstances if I've interpreted that sentence correctly
Apr 15th

It's 2 weeks at #1 for Courtney Barnett's "Need A Little Time". It's not a hectic time just at the top of the chart, "A Shot" holds at #2. Press Club move a little closer to the top with "Suburbia" now at #3, moving "Sorry" down to #4. It means we have an all female top 5 as Janelle Monáe moves up to #5 with "Make Me Feel". That also extends to the top 6 with Beach House's "Dive" moving #6. 3 songs this week move up to the top 10 this week. Moaning Lisa are the first with "Carrie (I Want A Girl)" up 4 places to #8, and also reaching the top 10 for the first time is Hoodboi and Tkay Maidza, with "Glide" at #10. In the middle of these two is Years & Years, who are pretty regular in the top 10 now. "Sanctify" is up to #9 which is the same peak as "Sunlight" and "Shine", their 2 other top 10 hits.


4 new entries this week, and we start off with arguably the most noteworthy of them in the sense that this is the most popular song to hit this chart in a decent while. This week marks the return to the chart for Drake who has not been seen since his previous release "More Life" netted success with "Passionfruit" and "Get It Together". A year is a long time in Drake land though, so he's missed several noteworthy hits since then, but makes a return with the newest one "Nice For What", which aside from having a Lauryn Hill sample that makes me think of "The College Dropout", is just generally insanely infectious even by the pretty good standard Drake's set so far this year. It gives him a 12th chart entry to date as it enters at #24.
I have to preface this by saying that I wholeheartedly do not endorse many of the words and actions of one Azealia Banks, but I find it too difficult to resist her newest song that scratches a certain itch I didn't expect. Since I wasn't ready for "212" at the time, this is actually the first time she's made the chart, and it's with "Anna Wintour" at #27.
Last time Melody's Echo Chamber came up here, it was with her song "Cross My Heart", which was to be the lead single to her 2nd album, until she had a serious accident and was hospitalised for most of the year. Things are looking up though as "Bon Voyage" seems to have a release date. It also has a new single. "Breathe In, Breathe Out" does not have a Ludacris hook, but it does make for a highly potent cut of psych rock jamming that is much more contained than the previous singles have been. It's in at #34 and is her 3rd chart entry to date.
Lastly we have the obligatory Australian entry, and this time around it's a newcomer by the name of Kwame, who does the same deed as BLESSED by sounding so much like US contemporary artists that you'd be surprised when you learn he's actually from the land of the gren drum. The track I've taken a liking to is "NO TIME" which enters at #38.

OMG had no idea you liked Need A Little Time so much. Shows how out of touch I've become with your chart Good to see the debut for Nice For What, plus appearances for Make Me Feel, Sanctify (another surprise!), Gimme A Break, 1950, Hot Pink, Everybody Wants To Be Famous and Stir Fry.
I'm still torn on Anna Wintour but Nice For What and Breathe In, Breathe Out are great. Excellent #1, hopefully Beach House can get closer next week (also I wonder how close Dark Spring is to the chart). Good moves for King Princess, Liza Anne and James Bay.
Apr 22nd

If you have a little time to read this little piece of writing, I'll utilise it to inform you that Courtney Barnett has a 3rd week at #1 with "Need A Little Time". She heads up an entirely Australian top 5 this week, which is amazingly the first time this has happened since mid 2011. Sarah Blasko persists at #2, while Press Club hold their peak of #3. Bolting up the top 10 is Moaning Lisa and their first ever hit "Carrie (I Want A Girl)" up 4 places to #4, while Ok Sure manages a 10th week in the top 5, with "Sorry" at #5. There are actually no changes in terms of which songs occupy the top 10 this week, though change looks likely with Nicole Millar, Eleanor Jacks & Kali Uchis waiting in the wings, only Nicole of them having hit the top 10 in the past though that was just as a featured artist.


Looking at a variety of nostalgia across the past 10 years with these entries, mostly because these artists have frequented my chart in that time period. With one exception being the top debutant, an artist I've been very aware of and liked but just never showed up here until now. So for the first time I welcome Lykke Li to the chart with "deep end" at #21, making me unsure whether to make an iamamiwhoami, Kanye West or Kendrick Lamar joke.
Next up we have the artist who can lay claim to about as many chart entries as the other debutants put together. Things have been very fruitful for Kimbra lately, though she hasn't reached past heights, she's charted now as many songs from her new album as she did on "Vows", and more than she did on "The Golden Echo" as "Primal Heart" gets a 3rd song onto the chart, following "Everybody Knows" and "Version Of Me". Naturally this is also a completely different direction to those other tracks as we get some full on '80s synth glory on "Lightyears" at #24, which I believe is Kimbra's 12th chart entry to date. Kimbra would also be the sole non-Australian component of the prior all Australian top 5 as she guested on Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" there.
Next up we have a big return to the chart from an Australian prog rock band who've not been seen on this chart in many years. Unlike Cog, this is not through lack of trying. Dead Letter Circus have remained pretty active for the past decade really. But the last time they hit this chart was with "Wake Up" in 2012, meaning that the gap between their first and last chart entries was half as big as the gap between their last entry and now. So the band extend their era of relevance by quite some way thanks to new song "The Armour You Own" which suffice to say is incredibly my sort of thing, and enters at #27. This is their 5th chart entry to date.
Next up we have an artist with far less chronological tenure, but perhaps is of more note in another sense for absolutely ruling the last half of 2017. After all, Samsaruh did just casually put out my favourite song of that year, and generally did well with whatever I heard outside of that too. She's done well enough now to score a 5th chart entry as newest track "Gunpowder" does the trick and comes in at #29.
Rounding off is perhaps the artist with the most standard chart history. This new debut means that they've charted at least once with their last 3 studio albums, totalling 4 entries all up. This is me talking about Unknown Mortal Orchestra who had quite a good 2015 and saw huge top 5 success for "Multi-Love". They return this week with "Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays" which reminds me in no small part of that previous album I adored. It's in at #38.

deep end is an excellent entry, great to see it in! The other 4 debuts are in the opposite order I think as I really like the UMO song too Great top two still obviously and nice to see Melody, Drake and Azealia on the up.
Great to see deep end and Lightyears debut! Great to see Gimme A Break, 1950 and Nice For What all rise this week too.
Apr 29th

Running high on dragon energy for 4 weeks now, Courtney Barnett retains #1 with "Need A Little Time". It's evidently a good time for her because she even gets a shout out in the #2 song "Carrie (I Want A Girl)" which is up 2 places from #4. "A Shot" slides down to #3 and "Suburbia" down to #4, but on the way up is Hoodboi and Tkay Maidza's "Glide" at #5. Lower down in the top 10, Years & Years are now higher than ever before with "Sanctify" at #7, while Kali Uchis & Steve Lacy's "Just A Stranger" becomes a first top 10 for both artists. Nicole Millar has her 1st solo top 10 and 2nd overall with "Gimme A Break" up to #9.


In case we needed any more proof that post-"Bad Liar" is the best new music genre of 2018, here comes Cyn leading the pack with her 2nd chart entry. She reached #17 a few weeks ago with "Alright", and is now getting more ambitious on new single "Believer" at #21.
Next up is the artist with the biggest chart history of the week. It's a new year and it's a new Gretta Ray single. She's done pretty well so far with 2 #1 singles, and now scores a 4th overall entry with "Time" at #24.
If my counting is correct and it probably isn't, to date I've had 10 artists hit #1 and never chart with another song. And 'had' is the correct word because that possibly incorrect number drops down to 9 this week as we've got the long awaited return of Friendly Fires to the chart. In 2011 they had a #1 hit with "Live Those Days Tonight", and now they finally have a 2nd entry with "Love Like Waves" at #28.
Just one entry this week from a debutant artist, but it's a two for one feature with the featured artist as well. You might recall Aminé from his big hit last year "Caroline". He hasn't deviated far from that in the sense that this new single is also 8 letters long and starting with 'Ca', however it also features Injury Reserve and sounds like a fair meeting point between the two artists. "Campfire" debuts at #34.
We've had a #1 peaking artist get their 2nd entry this week, so in addition to it we've got a #2 peaking artist getting their 2nd entry. Baker Boy didn't wait anywhere near as long though, with "Mr La Di Da Di" becoming his 2nd entry to date #37.

Poached the Dead Letter Circus and Samsurah newer tracks for my chart this week.
The 3 debuts I've heard are the bottom ones and I like them in their order. Good moves for Lykke Li, Azealia and Samsaruh, and wow Moaning Lisa
May 6th

A new #1 this week! Last week we reduced the number of artists with just a #1 hit to their name and nothing else, and this week it's climbing back up again as Moaning Lisa get their first ever #1 with their first ever entry "Carrie (I Want A Girl)", but maybe they'll chart again in the future, who's to say? If instead you wanted a Courtney, you'll have to look all the way down at #2 as "Need A Little Time" has been swapped down a spot. Keeping up with a steady climb is Hoodboi's "Glide" now up 2 more places to #3. Kali Uchis is in the top 5 for the first ever time, "Just A Stranger" climbs up 4 places to #4, while Press Club finish off the top 5 with "Suburbia" at #5. Moving up into the top 10 this week is Eleanor Jacks' first hit "Boys" up to #9.


Leading off the pack for debuts this week is another return to the chart for Cog. Returning earlier this year, "The Middle" scored their first top 10 hit in 10 years. They don't need to wait as long this time as they score their 4th hit to date, "Altered States" at #22.
It's been a little while but we're back to lesser known New Zealand indie pop artists! This time making her first time into the chart is October, with the song "Body Of Desire" at #35.
Also in the realm of obscure musicians whose music I've heard through Spotify...here's one that's actually charted before. LOVA had a top 20 hit with "You Me And The Silence", and now she's up to her second entry with the very relatable "Insecurities" at #37.
Another artist with their 2nd entry, this week closes with Slowly Slowly. The band briefly charted last year with "Aliens". There is the chance that they could reach higher with "Alchemy" which debuts at #39.

Most of my favourites appear to be up this week, I'm looking at you Samsaruh, Melody, Amine, Friendly Fires, Drake, Azealia and ofc swimmingpoolswimmingpoolswimmingpool! I have some more debuts to check out, I think I've heard a Slowly Slowly song before as the name is familiar.
May 13th

For a second week now, the band who has that song that everyone's sick of hearing on triple j, Moaning Lisa, are holding the top spot with "Carrie (I Want A Girl)". This time around the runner up artist is not someone with a shout out, but I like to imagine that they'd be happy about Kali Uchis at #2 now with "Just A Stranger". Hoodboi's "Glide" holds at #3 as Courtney Barnett slides down to #4 with "Need A Little Time". Press Club retain their #5 position for another week with "Suburbia". Most of the action is at the lower end of the top 10 though as there are 3 new tracks moving up in there. The first two are the first time in for the artist. Firstly Lykke Li up 5 places to #7 with "deep end", and then Cyn's "Believer" up 6 places to #8. The third track moving up is Drake's "Nice For What", which moves to #9, giving him his 3rd top 10 hit following "Hotline Bling" and "Passionfruit".


Slowing things down just a little with 3 entries, but twice as many artists all up. Half of them attribute to the first entry, as the collaboration between Diplo, Labrinth & Sia that nobody asked for turned out to be better than I could ever have expected. But from the world of bizarrely credited songs, we have LSD's "Genius" entering at #22. It is clearly a lesson of perseverance that the man who wrote "Jealous" is able to go on and still able to make my chart. For the rest, Diplo has been credited twice prior, one of which was on a Sia song, while Sia herself has now had 12 entries.
This is a great time for me to make amends to some prior commentary. Janelle Monáe has actually now had 3 top 10 hits because in addition to "We Are Young" and recently "Make Me Feel", she also appeared on Grimes' song "Venus Fly" which also hit the top 10. Funnily enough, she returns the favour and now it's Grimes featuring on Janelle's track. "Pynk" comes in at #34 and is Janelle's 4th charting entry, and Grimes' 7th.
Lastly we have the obligatory weekly Australian track (if you don't count LSD), and it's Press Club getting in with a 2nd entry. They debuted to the chart in a big way with "Suburbia" reaching #3, now they get a 2nd entry with "Golden State" at #37.

May 20th

It's now a 3rd week at #1 for Moaning Lisa and "Carrie (I Want A Girl)". Last week Kali Uchis rose to #2, but I neglected to remember that Steve Lacy features on the song, and he is a bandmate of Syd in The Internet, which means the top two remain loosely connected. For a 3rd week, Hoodboi's "Glide" holds #3, but jumping up to #4 is Cyn's "Believer", up from #8, and Lykke Li's "deep end", up from #7. Moving into the top 10 this week is just one song, with Cog keeping up their perfect record of top 10 hits, as "Altered States" becomes their 4th at #10. It also means familiar territory for Dead Letter Circus, who have yet to score a top 10 hit, but as of this week, have 2 #11 hits, and 2 #14 hits.


Speaking of artists returning to the chart and matching their highest peaks, this week sees the return of Mitski. She has charted just once previously, at the end of 2016 with her song "Happy" that reached as high as #25. #25 is the place to be as she debuts at the top of the pack this week with "Geyser".
And speaking of artists who haven't hit the top 10, but have instead hit #11 multiple times, it's a similarly long awaited return to the chart, this time for Childish Gambino. Oddly enough, the last time he was in the chart was when "Redbone" sat at #40, and a week before that, "Happy" was #40. Anyway, his chart entries thus far have all been very different to one another, and adding to that is the invigorating "This Is America" at #27. This is his 4th song to chart.
In the time that these artists have been gone from the chart, another artist has racked up a lot of success here. That is Billie Eilish who since just over a year ago has notched up 4 chart entries, including two top 10s. In a similar sense, the past year has been a very successful time for Khalid. Just not on this chart as this is surprisingly the first time he's ever charted. So unlike in the charts, it's arguably Billie's starpower pulling him up, as she gets her 5th chart entry with "lovely" at #32.
You may or may have not noticed a notable absence for this week of Australian artists. I refuse to let the streak die just yet, though I am stretching it just a tiny bit as the only Australian artists this week is JOY. who is relegated to featured artist alongside fellow capital letter afficianado ZHU. ZHU has only charted once before now with his breakout hit "Faded", but he's finally getting his 2nd as the suspiciously Bon Iver-esque title of "Stormy Love, NM." comes in at #37.

Nice chart! I clearly don't listen to quite as much new music as you do but the two most recent number ones would be high on my list of best songs of 2018 so far.
May 27th

On a dour week when I and many others are mourning the loss of the Cynical Brit, the first 3 letters of that title make up the name of the artist that is hitting #1 this week. It's quite a rise to stardom for Cyn who made her debut to this chart in March with "Alright" which climbed to #17. Now she goes all the way to the top with her second entry "Believer" up from #4 last week. It keeps up the run of female #1's which incidentally started on the same week "Alright" appeared on the chart. It also shows us that a protege of Katy Perry can top my chart, meaning anything goes nowadays. Being deposed from the top spot is Moaning Lisa whose "Carrie (I Want A Girl)" is down to #2, while Kali Uchis also retreats a tad to #3 with "Just A Stranger". Lykke Li continues to climb with "deep end" now up to #4, while Hoodboi completes the top 5 with "Glide". While the run of Australian #1's has come to an end, it's a good week for Australian artists in the top 10, with Cog climbing to #6 with "Altered States", matching the peak of "The Middle" earlier this year. Meanwhile Gretta Ray scores her 3rd top 10 hit with "Time" now up to #8, and Dead Letter Circus get their first ever top 10 hit with "The Armour You Own" at #10.


Having given the album a bit of time to sit with me, I am to the shock of nobody, quite a big fan of Beach House's new album "7", which fulfils the sonic expansion that they've been hinting at for a while now. The track I'm highlighting here is "Drunk In LA" which debuts at #13. This is the duo's 11th hit to date.
Now another returning artist, who share a trait with Beach House as having hit #1 in the past. It's the much awaited return of BABYMETAL. Everyone's favourite Japanese pop metal group last charted in 2016, reaching the top spot with "KARATE". They've since faced tragedy as a guitarist in the band passed away a few months ago. They have carried on however with new track "Distortion" which enters at #24 and gives them a 3rd chart entry to date.
Now for a surprise, here's an artist who has never charted before in any capacity, and that artist is in fact Nicki Minaj. Persistence pays off however, and her recent single "Chun-Li" is a big winner, coming in at #35.
Finally here's another artist that hasn't charted before, though not to the same degree because one member of the band is notably Julia Jacklin who has scored a top 10 hit prior to this. Nonetheless it's the first time in for Phantastic Ferniture and their new song "F**kin 'n' Rollin", which may or may not hint at the existence of a song that relates to tumblin' & f**kin', you be the judge. It enters at #36.

I hate it when I get so behind I like the recent debuts for Pynk, This Is America and lovely. Great to see deep end up so high - I wonder who of us will chart it higher Go Nice For What, 1950, This Is America, lovely and all that too.
Jun 3rd

2 weeks at the top now for Cyn's "Believer". It's a relatively steady top 10, as Moaning Lisa retain #2, and the next two songs swap. Lykke Li hits a new peak of #3 and Kali Uchis drops to #4. Cog move up to #5 giving them their highest charting entry since 2008's "Are You Interested". Two tracks climb into the top 10 this week, firstly Mitski's "Geyser" which is her first top 10 hit, and then the much more familiar Beach House who score an 8th with "Drunk In LA".


It is of course very relevant to note that 2 weeks ago I had a Japanese artist debut at #25 and 1 week ago I had a Japanese artist debut at #24. Now I know what you're thinking, and you're 100% correct. This week, at #23 I have yet another artist from an Axis Power nation entering, as Germany's bülow makes her debut to the chart with "SAD AND BORED", a song that also features first time entrant Duckwrth.
The rest of these artists are plenty familiar to the chart, in fact they've all had #1 hits in the past, most recently of which is Courtney Barnett, who picks up a 3rd entry from her most recent album, as "City Looks Pretty" comes in at #32. This is her 5th entry to date.
Next up is another song that took quite some time to crack the list, it's a recent single from Highasakite, whose success hit its peak in 2016 where they scored a #1 hit with "Someone Who'll Get It". Now they come in at #36 with their 3rd chart entry to date, "Out Of Order".
Last up is the least recent of these artists to hit #1, but a constant presence on the chart ever since. Since hitting #1 with their first ever entry "I For An Eye" in 2015, WAAX have maintained at least 1 debut per year, and now they bring their tally to 6 as "Labrador" comes in at #39.

Stupendous stability yet again, Cyn's "Believer" now holds #1 for a 3rd week. In the runner up slot, Lykke Li hits a new peak of #2 with "deep end", moving Moaning Lisa down to #3. Cog keep climbing as "Altered States" reaches #4, while Mitski is new to the top 5 at #5. Fresh in the top 10 this week is BABYMETAL, who now restore their perfect top 10 record as they score a 3rd with "Distortion" up to #10.


While I might argue that Kanye West's album "ye" is not as focused on the topic of mental health as might be gleamed from the artwork, it's certainly been cathartic for me in a time when I'm not able to easily find enjoyment. This best manifests itself for me through "Ghost Town", the latest entry into the canon of Kanye songs that help me feel empowered, like "We Major" and "POWER". And perhaps it may be looked back on as a star making performance for 070 Shake. Nonetheless, the track comes in at #12 this week and is Kanye's 12th entry to date.
Incidentally you could gather from that prior entry that I have been feeling rather sad and bored lately, which just so happens to be the name of the bülow track that debuted last week. She's not messing around though as she's back for a 2nd week in a row, quickly scoring a 2nd hit with "You and Jennifer" at #26.
Now we arrive on the sole newcomer to the chart this week, as it's been a moderately long time coming for Jack River. Her latest single "Limo Song" has wormed its way onto me very quickly as it comes in at #33.
Lastly is an artist whose collective impact you would assume warrants a fair bit of chart success but instead this is only the 2nd time on the chart for The Internet, though I guess Steve Lacy recently hitting #2 does count for something. Anyway, their new song "Come Over" gets in at #38.

Historic news this week as there's a new #1. It brings the tally to 159 #1's, but it comes with the notable achievement of being by quite a margin, the shortest song to ever hit #1. It does not take much research to realise that naturally it means Mitski has taken the #1 spot with "Geyser". Running for 2:24, it is 20 seconds shorter than the next shortest #1, "Fluffy" by Wolf Alice. It replaces the relatively short former #1 from Cyn, "Believer" which falls to #2, while Lykke Li's "deep end" moves back to #3. Charging up the chart is BABYMETAL whose "Distortion" is doing very well to be at #4 considering it didn't click with me at first. Cog finish up the top 5 as the highest Australian artist this week, with "Altered States" at #5. There's just one new track in the top 10 this week, with Kanye West and uncredited company (though Spotify now tells me that PARTYNEXTDOOR is featured on it ~). "Ghost Town" becomes his 7th top 10 hit. Also spare some sympathy for Childish Gambino who at present just hit #11 with "This Is America", which is his 3rd time reaching said peak, yet to get any higher.


It is a good time for artists to be pushing multiple songs at once. After all, bülow (who sadly does not debut for a 3rd week in a row) just scored a 2nd concurrent top 20 hit. Nearly doing the same is Phantastic Ferniture, who just pushed "F**kin 'n' Rollin" up to #19, and not far behind have this week's top debut, "Gap Year" which comes in at #21, meaning that they have charted more times than Julia Jacklin has solo.
I would continue this spiel, but of course KIDS SEE GHOSTS is a completely new artist, detached from any prior chart histories. Perhaps in the future I could attach it to Kanye West & Kid Cudi's chart histories for statistical purposes, but for the time being, I will just note "Reborn" as debuting at #24, keeping up the positive vibes from last week.
On the topic of artists with genuinely limited chart histories, now is the first time in the chart ever as lead artist, we've got Charli XCX. She charted long ago in 2012 via Icona Pop's "I Love It", but perhaps there's a new leader of the pack as "5 In The Morning" makes a debut at #29.
Lastly it's a sort of unexpected moment to say that I'm debuting a song by a Canadian former teen pop star, no not that one. It's actually Ryan Beatty who I have just learnt did the hook to BROCKHAMPTON's song "BLEACH" last year. Incidentally this song of his I feel has more in common with their album closing slow jams. "Bruise" enters at #39.

The song that says 'your my number one' continues to be #1, that being Mitski's "Geyser". She leads an unprecedented all Japanese top 2 as BABYMETAL's "Distortion" climbs up 2 spots to #2. The trio have charted 3 times and all 3 entries have reached at least #2. Cyn's "Believer" drops down a spot to #3, while Kanye West has "Ghost Town" up 4 more spots to #4. I'd do some sort of notation to say that it's his highest entry since "Ultralight Beam", though that is not especially impressive as he's only charted 1 song between these two tracks. Finishing off the top 5 is Lykke Li's "deep end" at #5. We do however have a track moving into the top 10, and it's a historic moment for Childish Gambino who finally has a top 10 hit, with "This Is America" up 2 spots to #9. bülow will be hoping to do the same, considering she has two songs closely trailing, "SAD AND BORED" at #11 and "You And Jennifer" at #13.


It has been a non-stop feast all month of GOOD Music albums, as is quite apparent on this chart which is slowly being filled with them. The top debut this week in fact comes from Nas's latest album, "NASIR", his first studio album in 6 years, a time long enough for me to have become quite enamoured with his talents as an MC. I have also in the past been noted as being quite fond of Nas & Kanye West collaborations which last over 7 minutes, "We Major" is an all time favourite of mine after all. Here they are together again, alongside the lovely singing of The-Dream (who previously appeared alongside Kanye on #1 hit "Ultralight Beam"), for yet another emotionally gripping track, "everything". It's Nas's 1st time ever charting, and Kanye's 14th, as it enters at #8.
Now for much less grand ambitions, though not to their detriment at all, I go exceedingly local with a Perth band I had not heard of a week ago. Fortune smiled upon me happening to discover "Like Honey" by Telete and it enters at #22.
It's not been long since we last saw Highasakite on this chart, in fact I'd say they were charting as recently as now with "Out Of Order". It would look as though they quickly followed it up just because of how long that one took to chart, but nonetheless, "Elastic State Of Mind" has gripped onto me rather quickly. It enters at #31 and is their 4th chart entry to date.
Lastly, it's been a long time since Snakadaktal have appeared on this chart primarily because they broke up and we're all very sad about that fact still. Side projects are a thing though, and Two People is just that, with the track "I'm Tied, To You" coming in at #40.

Mitski's my number one for a 3rd week now. She continues to fend off BABYMETAL who take the #2 slot for a 2nd week. On the way up however is Kanye West and his hefty crew of uncredited artists on "Ghost Town" at #3, which trades places with Cyn who moves down to #4. Beach House also reach the top 5 for the first time in about 3 years, with "Drunk In LA" doing the deed. Otherwise we're seeing the top 10 crowding up with some familiar names. bülow is largely to blame for this, as she has scored her 1st & 2nd top 10 hits at the same time, with "SAD AND BORED" at #8 and "You And Jennifer" at #9. She's not the only one entering the top 10 however, as KIDS SEE GHOSTS climbs up 8 spots to #10. Alongside "everything" at #6, Kanye is making for a particularly chilled out top 10. That's not the biggest move of the week though, as Highasakite's debut from last week, "Elastic State Of Mind" soars up 15 places to #16.


I would say that this is a quiet week for debuts only with regards to how high they are. For the 7th week in a row there are exactly 4 debuts, something that I am not intentionally keeping up and may not last much longer, who knows though. For the top debut of the week, we've got another look into making cumulative chart stats confusing as we've got a debut to the chart for The Carters. Both Beyonce & JAY-Z are no strangers to this chart and now they're charting together, with some more uncredited help from the members of Migos who weren't left off "Bad and Boujee". "APESHIT" is the top debut this week at #30.
Next we have an artist that is certainly new to the chart, as it's the first time in for CLOVES. The Spotify age means that you can hear a song you like and then find out that the artist has another song with tens of millions of streams. Anyhow, I'm taking to "Wasted Time" which gives me a wistful Lana Del Rey vibe, and enters in at #33.
Finally an artist who is certainly familiar to the chart with no sorts of asterisks to come along with it. You may recall Moaning Lisa had a #1 hit on this chart earlier this year, what with the fact that "Carrie (I Want A Girl)" is still on the chart and the chart advertises that #1 status. Now a few months later they've followed it up, and we have "Good" to show a different, more mellow vibe at #35.
Finishing things off with more debutants, it's the long awaited appearance for the dynamic duo of Riton & Kah-Lo, who have collaborated so many times and I've been behind the times on them so many times that they've never approached the chart before. This time is different, as their ultimate culmination of making people feel too old for certain types of music, "Ginger" comes in at #38, because the music is flames.

I have been getting into Geyser. Reborn and SAD AND BORED are both good new top 10 entries. Good to see Ginger has debuted and I love how well deep end did. Carrie (I Want A Girl) still going well is good to see and I love how much Elastic State Of Mind jumped this week.
Jul 8th

Having well and truly come into place, Mitski's "Geyser" now holds a 4th week at #1. It then leads a descending staircase of holding songs that only really makes sense if you can see my spreadsheet, but BABYMETAL are at #2 for a 3rd week and Kanye West is at #3 for a 2nd week. That's not to say Kanye isn't particularly busy this week as he's had a hand in the rest of the top 5, Nas moving up to #4 with "everything" and KIDS SEE GHOST's "Reborn" shooting up to #5. Also of note in the top 10 is bülow's two tracks swapping place, and Phantastic Ferniture's "Gap Year" becoming their first top 10 hit.


Another week of 4 entries, and we start things off in curious fashion with a band that haven't seen the charting light in roughly 6 years. This is Last Dinosaurs, who did quite well for themselves at the start of the decade, with 3 entries, two of which hit the top 10. Moving on in fine fashion as if they'd never left, "Eleven" nets them a 4th chart entry, and it's in at #19.
Now another artist who hasn't been on the chart in a while is Pusha T. He charted just once as a featured artist on Stromae's "Meltdown" in 2014, which did quite well reaching the top 5. He now manages to strike out on his own though as "If You Know You Know" has very recently clicked with me boy. It's new at #25 and now the 4th GOOD Music album from 2018 to impact the chart.
Roughly a year ago there was a song titled "Nobody" on this chart, and now history vaguely repeats itself courtesy of another new track from Mitski. She obviously needs no introduction at this point, but I will note that "Nobody" has hit #32 and is her 3rd charting entry.
There is very obvious shade to be made but I've done it before and need not say it again. Instead I will send the welcome out to Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, as the only debutant artist of the week, which is not to say that I have not been familiar with their work for quite some time now. Nonetheless, "Leave A Light On" succeeds and enters at #36.

Good to see Reborn and Elastic State of Mind move up along with Geyser still at #1.
Jul 15th

The top end of the chart continues to be more or less locked into place. Mitski's "Geyser" is up to 5 weeks at the top, fending off BABYMETAL for 4 of those 5 weeks. The GOOD Music consortium maintains hold on the rest of the top 5. Kanye West's "Ghost Town" at #3, KIDS SEE GHOSTS with "Reborn" at #4, and Nas's "everything" at #5. There's just the one fresh entry in the top 10, with Highasakite's "Elastic State Of Mind" moving up to #10, becoming their 2nd top 10 hit following 2016's #1 hit "Someone Who'll Get It".


The fiesta of four fresh faces follows through for a ninth week in a row. Again, it's largely comprised of familiar faces, none moreso than our opening act. My love of Metric's music is well documented, particularly since it pretty much lines up with when I first started typing out charts. Their most recent album "Pagans In Vegas" was not a big favourite of mine though it did net many entries. However, their latest single "Dark Saturday" has already surpassed the peak of every single one of them as it bolts in at #16. It's their 12th entry to date.
Next up is another familiar name, especially in recent times. It hasn't even been a year since BROCKHAMPTON first appeared on this chart and they've already notched up their 8th entry to date, which is abundantly believeable considering their output rate. This is their first time scoring a new entry this year though, with new single "1999 WILDFIRE", which comes in at #22.
Now for an artist I know very little about because I do not investigate the Icelandic post-metal scene very often. So this is the first time in for Sólstafir with the only song of theirs I have heard, "Bláfjall" at #33. Between this, Of Monsters and Men, Bjork, Sigur Ros & Emiliana Torrini, I'm pretty sure I have purchased music made by about 1% of Iceland's population.
Lastly for the obligatory Australian entry, Golden Features is back in the chart. It's actually only the 2nd time he's made the top 40, having previously done so in early 2015 with "Tell Me". Latest song "Worship" is in at #37.

The top of the chart remains very unchallenged for yet another week, and so we have Mitski scoring her 6th week at #1, while BABYMETAL are #2 for a 5th week. There is a little bit of a reshuffle lower down, as KIDS SEE GHOSTS move up to #3 with "Reborn", pushing "Ghost Town" to #4. bülow scores her first top 5 hit with "You And Jennifer" moving up a spot to #5. Once again there's only one track moving into the top 10 this week, and it comes from last week's big debut for Metric. "Dark Saturday" bolts from #16 to #9 giving them their 6th top 10, and first in about 6 years. I also obviously have to mention that Last Dinosaurs are at #11 with "Eleven".


For the first time in a while, there are not 4 debuts, but 3. This time around however, the one newbie to the chart has the highest debut this week. Having never really been in chart contention before, this is the first ever appearance for Amy Shark, with what is probably my favourite song on "reputation", "All Loved Up" which enters at #22.
For a considerably more familiar artist, next up we've got Courtney Barnett who's already charted 3 times just this year, as well as another top 50 hit. Overall though she's up to her 6th entry, as "Charity" finds a way in at #26.
Lastly we've got a song that's been pushing to get in for quite a while now, and it's a return to the chart for both Clean Bandit and Demi Lovato. Clean Bandit charted twice in 2014, and Demi Lovato once in 2015, so now they pick up their 3rd & 2nd entries respectively with "Solo" at #39.

Ooh at the debut for Golden Features. I like that one too although not as much as Falling Out. I'm surprised Solo has debuted, clearly I am very behind in what others on this site are enjoying! Charity has been nice whenever I hear it during the ACI. Good rises for Reborn, Elastic State Of Mind, 5 In The Morning and Ginger too.
Jul 29th

It's not often we see such a stranglehold at the top, but for a 7th week in a row, Mitski's "Geyser" does it. It's particularly unlucky for BABYMETAL whose "Distortion" has now been stuck at #2 for a record breaking 6 weeks in a row. In fact most of the top 5 is the same as last week as "Reborn" holds #3 and "You and Jennifer" holds #5. The only change is from Metric whose "Dark Saturday" bolts up 5 more places to #4. Fresh in the top 10 this week is Last Dinosaurs, who pick up their 3rd top 10 to date, and first since "Zoom" 6 and a half years ago, as "Eleven" moves up to #10.


Very much the same as last week, there are 3 new entries, coming from, in order, an artist who has never charted before, an artist who has charted this year, and another artist who hasn't charted in a while. All of them are Australian however, something that hasn't happened in 4 months. First off is another solo female artist, Alex The Astronaut, who actually did come somewhat close to charting early last year with "Rockstar City", but makes much faster progress this time around with new single "Waste Of Time", which comes in at quite an appropriate time as "Wasted Time" just dropped out of the top 40. It's new at #23.
Having a surprise comeback earlier this year was Dead Letter Circus, who 2 months ago scored their first top 10 hit ever, despite having been absent from the chart for 6 years. They're much quicker to follow up success this time around as their next single "The Real You" comes in at #25. It's their 6th charting single to date.
Lastly, while not technically a debutant artist, this is her first time breaking out on her own. You might recall OKENYO for featuring on Urthboy's "Second Heartbeat" back in 2016, which netted her quite a big top 5 hit. This time around she's pandering heavily to me by naming a song "UTOPIA", which after many months of trying, finally sneaks in at #39.

Aug 5th

"Geyser" has been bubbling at the top for 8 weeks straight now but maybe there's new competition afoot. Metric's "Dark Saturday" keeps on climbing up to #2 from #4 last week. BABYMETAL's "Distortion" slides down to #3 and KIDS SEE GHOSTS's "Reborn" is down to #4. bülow actually manages to hold her place with "You And Jennifer" at #5 however. There's also just one new track into the top 10 this week, as BROCKHAMPTON get their 5th top 10 hit with "1999 WILDFIRE" moving up to #8.


It's the most new entries in a while as this week there are 5 entering the fray. The first of which is the newest of the lot, as Samsaruh keeps up her impressive hit rate with newest single "Speaking Fire" at #23. This is her 6th chart entry, having only first charted a little over a year ago.
Next up is a bit older but it only just recently clicked with me. A few months ago King Princess debuted at #27 with "1950" and now she's gone and done the exact same thing with the song "Talia" which also debuts at #27, her second chart entry.
BROCKHAMPTON just hit the top 10, but they never just chart one song at a time do they? So for another entry, we go back one more year for "1998 TRUMAN" at #28. They actually only first charted even more recently than Samsaruh, less than a year ago, and now they're up to 9 entries.
All of these artists have been seen pretty recently, but now for the next debut we're going way back...just two years. DRAM of course made the gloriously fun delight of "Broccoli" which netted a top 20 hit back in 2016, and since then he's decided to troll last.fm, but also release new music. "WWYD?", no relation to City High or Dennis Lloyd, charts at #32 for his 2nd time in.
Finally we end things off with a debut, as I finally latch onto a Luca Brasi song while it's relevant...relatively speaking. "The In-Between" is new at #37.

Good to see the debuts for Samsaruh and King Princess. Gesyer sure is having a great run at #1 and I totally approve. It's a shame Elastic State Of Mind, SAD AND BORED and Nobody have already peaked but Ginger, Worship and Solo (you've got the TI wrong btw ) up is good.
Aug 12th

After 8 brief weeks, there's a new #1 this week. Reaching the top spot for the first time in 6 years is Metric, as "Dark Saturday" becomes their 4th #1. This follows "Sick Muse" and "Gimme Sympathy" in 2009, and "Speed The Collapse" in 2012. It maintains the streak of nearly 6 months with female fronted #1's. Moving down from the top spot, Mitski's "Geyser" resides at #2, still ahead of BABYMETAL's "Distortion" at #3. Last Dinosaurs now have their highest charting single ever with "Eleven" at #4, and KIDS SEE GHOSTS finish the top 5 with "Reborn" at #5. Also yet again there's one new song moving into the top 10 this week, as Amy Shark does so for the first time ever, with "All Loved Up" at #9.


This week is heavy on Australian artists this week, and for that matter, it's a familiar pack. First up we've got Wafia with the newest song, "I'm Good", released just a couple of days ago. It follows her most recent top 40 entry "Only Love" which debuted near the start of the year, and between then, she had a bubbling under hit with Louis The Child, "Better Not". In at #24, this is her 3rd top 40 entry overall.
Like clockwork, Gretta Ray releases a new single and it ends up on this chart. The latest one now is "Radio Silence", which is said to be intrinsically linked with previous entry "Time", which hit the top 10 about 3 months ago. It's her 5th entry now and in at #28.
And for one more Australian artist, we've got E^ST in at #32. Her regularity of making the chart is on par with Wafia with just how infrequent it is. There's also another similarity with Wafia because this new song "I Don't Lack Imagination" sounds a bit like...SAFIA. Her most recent chart appearance was "Life Goes On" at the end of last year, which became her highest charter to date at #23. That'll be the margin to beat as she enters at #32.
Now for the sole non-Australian, though in keeping with the pattern of all of this week's entries being from solo female artists, to the dismay of Michael Crafter. Billie Eilish continues to quickly rack up the hits as she's now up to 6 thanks to "you should see me in a crown" entering at #34.

It's another dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, "Dark Saturday" as Metric gets a 2nd week at the top. There's no change up top with Mitski's "Geyser" holding #2 for a second week as well. Last Dinosaurs keep climbing however, with "Eleven" now at a different prime number, #3. BABYMETAL's "Distortion" moves down to #4 while BROCKHAMPTON compensate with more shouting as "1999 WILDFIRE" moves to a new peak of #3. Reaching the top 10 for the first time this week is Samsaruh's "Speaking Fire" up 6 places to #8. This is her 3rd top 10 hit to date.


They're currently riding high at the #1 spot, but Metric aren't done here, as latest single "Dressed To Suppress" comes along, reminding me a little of Cherry Glazerr's song "Lucid Dreams". This is their 13th entry to date and it's #28 this week.
Just one artist debuting for the first time this week and it's been a long time coming for Braille Face. He has been a frequent entrant in the non-published portion of the chart. "Fallen" is in fact his 4th song to make any impact, but finally cracks the top 40 at #31.
You could say that this is Metric week as aside from top debut and top song, their influence spreads further through Thelma Plum's current single because the refrain is very reminiscent of "Gold Guns Girls". "Clumsy Love" enters at #35 this week and is her first solo entry, following a collaboration with A.B. Original at the start of last year.
Finishing things up is a new entry for an occasional chart regular by name of Woodes. Having first appeared in early 2015, she now notches up her 3rd chart entry with "Change My Mind" at #39. Memes.

Metric hold the top spot for a 3rd week in a row with "Dark Saturday", putting it square in the middle of their standard for #1 reigns, having previously spent 2, 3 & 4 weeks at the top. Holding the runner up slot again is Mitski's "Geyser" which has been in the top 5 for the last 12 weeks. Another artist familiar with extended chart running at the top end is Samsaruh, and now for the first time this year she's back in the top 5, with "Speaking Fire" shooting up to #3. Last Dinosaurs' "Eleven" is down to #4, while BROCKHAMPTON hold the #5 slot with "1999 WILDFIRE". The count of solo Australian women in the top 10 doubles this week, as joining the top 10 this week is Wafia's "I'm Good" at #8, which is her 2nd ever top 10 hit, and Alex The Astronaut is there for the first time ever with "Waste Of Time" at #10.


It's another good week for Australian artists as they dominate the new entries this week. Leading the pack this week is the only top 20 debut we've had this month, and it comes from Olympia. She hasn't appeared on the chart since 2016, with her debut album netting a lot of success on this chart. The first new song from her this year is called "Star City", assumably in tribute to one of the best levels on Diddy Kong Racing, and enters at #18. It's her 5th chart entry to date.
Next up is another relatively familiar Australian artist on this chart, but they're sharing chart space with Olympia for the first time ever because they accumulated all of their prior chart entries last year. I'm talking about The Money War, who score their 4th chart entry to date with the very mellow "Hollywood" at #25.
Next up is another artist who hasn't shared chart space with either artist because the last time we saw Thundamentals on the chart was in 2013 with "Smiles Don't Lie". Proving that was not a once-off fluke, they've finally gotten their 2nd entry to date with "All I See Is Music" at #34.
And for one last artist that hasn't shared chart space with any of the prior ones, for the obvious reason that she's never charted before. She's also the one non-Australian entrant this week. It's also a second week in a row that I end the list of debuts with a meme? "Oh No" by LION is new at #38.

Some great debuts that I'm familiar with making it in later Yas for I'm Good, I Don't Lack Imagination, you should see me in a crown, Clumsy Love and Change My Mind. Go Clumsy Love with that small rise!
Sep 2nd

It's time for a new number one. Between 2017 & 2018 there was a streak of 8 consecutive #1's from artists who had not previously done so. That streak ended with Metric scoring their 4th #1 a few weeks back, and now we get a new potential streak of returning #1 artists as it is Samsaruh who has done it now with "Speaking Fire". This is her 2nd #1 of course, following "Golden To Thrive"'s arguably notable 8 week run last year. And on the topic of 8 week runners at #1, Mitski's "Geyser" also did that and is currently #3. So once again we have an all female-led top 4 because Wafia has shot up to #4 with "I'm Good", while BROCKHAMPTON are holding the #5 spot with "1999 WILDFIRE". There's another big mover this week which may well prove some creedence to the new #1 streak because it's former #1 artist Olympia scoring her 4th top 10 hit thanks to last week's debut "Star City" jumping up 10 places to #8.


Fret not as the standard 4 new entries are here. We start off with a familiar name, at least recently. Nothing But Thieves had something of a watershed moment last year when they went from never charting before to having top 10 hits (and a #11). Keeping their success not limited to that year, they've released a new single, and it's sounding like another hit for them. "Forever & Ever More" is in at #23 for their 4th chart entry to date.
Next up we've got the obligatory Australian entry, a streak which I must note has now been going for 52 weeks. It's a new artist to the chart though one I've known about for years. I Know Leopard however can be fortunate that I was able to come across "Landmine" and take to it rather quickly, as it enters at #26.
Next up is another Australian artist, though one I have not been aware of before, which makes sense because this is the only song they have on Spotify. Jaguar Jonze is the name, and whistful, upbeat pop rock with a tense guitar rhythm that kind of reminds me of "Gold Guns Girls"/"Six Months In A Cast" but at the same time not really. "You Got Left Behind" comes in at #32.
Lastly it's the closest we've got to a proper chart veteran just by how long ago she last charted. This is however the first ever solo outing for Robyn, who previously only charted alongside Royksopp for a pair of hits in 2014. "Missing U" gives her a 3rd entry to her name as it sneaks in at #38.

2 weeks in a row now for Samsaruh's "Speaking Fire". She leads the pack of an entirely female fronted top 5, something that happened for most of "Golden To Thrive"'s #1 run as well. Metric's "Dark Saturday" holds at #2, staying ahead of Wafia who is now up to #3 with "I'm Good", which matches her previous peak with "Love Somebody". Mitski's "Geyser" is down to #4, while Olympia climbs into the top 5 with "Star City" at #5. Moving into the top 10 this week is King Princess, scoring her first ever top 10 hit with "Talia", sneaking in at #10, possibly balancing out "1950" just missing out at #12.


This week I learnt that Thom Yorke has made some new music and has already released a song for which I immediately stopped what I was doing and listened to. Early days but it's very promising already, and adds to his very confusing collective discography of chart entries here. Radiohead have previously had 6 entries, Atoms For Peace have previously had 3 entries, and Thom himself has previously had 1 entry, so you could perhaps say "Suspirium" is his 11th charting song at #22.
Next up is the latest in a series of artists I have only just discovered are Australian, and so it's the first ever outing for AViVA and her curiously dark & quirky pop. "Hushh" enters at #29.
Next up is a big comeback to the chart for Deep Sea Arcade. The band previously charted just once in 2012 with "Seen No Right", and now 6 years later they have a second chart entry with "Outlaw" at #33.
And finally it's beat-switches ahoy as Travis Scott returns to the chart for the first time this year with "STARGAZING" at #37. He previously charted two times in quick succession in 2016, notably with top 10 hit "Pick Up The Phone" (brrp).

3 weeks running for Samsaruh at #1. If she can hold on for two more weeks, it'll be the second year in a row that she has reigned for all of September. She will however have tough competition as Wafia's "I'm Good" climbs up to #2 making it her outright highest charting track to date. It slides Metric's "Dark Saturday" back 1 spot to #3, while Olympia keeps climbing with "Star City" now at #4. Mitski's "Geyser" rounds out the top 5, an area of the chart it has been part of for the last 15 weeks. Right behind her is also the first of our two new arrivals in the top 10, the first time in such great heights for E^ST, whose "I Don't Lack Imagination" has done big things for her as it's now sitting at #6. Also of note is The Money War scoring their 2nd top 10 hit to date with "Hollywood".


Not including Drake, it has been a while since we last had an artist chart posthumously. In a partial sense the last instance was A Tribe Called Quest at the end of 2016, and in a full sense, I think the last instance was David Bowie at the start of 2016. That year was also the one time Mac Miller made an impact before now, scoring a top 10 hit with "Dang!". As of last week he is sadly no longer with us and so I went to listen to his newest album and doing so reminded me of a track I'd been passively enjoying on the radio for a while. Maybe it's just the closest equivalent to "Dang!", but nonetheless, "What's The Use?" gives him a second entry at #22.
The rest of this week's debuts are all from artists who have never charted before. First up is one I am surprised is Australian, because in a manner not unlike Carmouflage Rose, their sound feels very international...in fact it sounds a decent amount like Kendrick Lamar. At #28 this week is the first time charting for POETIK, with "Lets Kick It".
Next up is another Australian artist, and another one who could believably be from overseas by the ruling of having a sound that is pretty in line with US counterparts. This time though, it's breezy indie surf-rock or whatever you want to call it. It's an upbeat good time with FRITZ and "Summer Holiday".
Lastly we've got a collaboration between two artists that despite never having charted before, have both got a bit of tenure between them, in fact both have appeared in prior End Of Year lists of mine, and I imagine one will have plenty more chances to appear in more in the past by virtue of being Neil Finn. That's not to discredit Liam Finn, it's just that he's younger and doesn't have multiple albums in his catalogue of fantastic AOR rock music between two very successful bands. Either way, the two have teamed up for an album that was released a few weeks back, and the track "Ghosts" is in at #38.

New #1 time as Wafia has gone and done it. "I'm Good" has slowly crept up 1 place each week for the last 3 weeks and hits the top spot now. It's the 5th Australian #1 this year, all but one of which have been by solo female artists, a state that is shared by this week's top 5 in fact. Last week's #1 from Samsaruh, "Speaking Fire" is down a spot to #2, while the rest of the top 6 is pairs of swaps. Olympia hits a new high of #3 for "Star City" swapping with Metric's "Dark Saturday" down to #4, while E^ST scores her first top 5 hit with "I Don't Lack Imagination" up to #5. Climbing into the top 10 is BROCKHAMPTON who now have two in the top 10 with "1998 TRUMAN" joining "1999 WILDFIRE" right on time as neither are included on their new album.


On the top of all but one of a set of tracks sharing a trait, we can say the same with this week's new entries. That trait this time is that they're by artists who have charted just once previously, with a debut in 2017. The first artist doesn't appear to be someone with such a status, but it is true that Dizzee Rascal's first chart entry was "Wot U Gonna Do?" last year. He's already far surpassed the peak of that track though with the title track to his newest EP "Don't Gas Me" bolting in at #18.
Next up is an artist who barely snuck their first track into last year, as Bene's "Tough Guy" debuted at the end of December and went on o be a #29 hit. She's also instantly surpassed that because her next single "Soaked" is in at #23.
Unlike the other two, the next artist will have quite a task matching their previous entry, because in Lil Uzi Vert's case, that was the excellent "XO TOUR Llif3" which hit the top 5 about 15 months ago. Still, he persists and finally follows it up with some success in the form of "New Patek" at #31. I just can't escape Rey Mysterio references lately.
The one debuting artist that does have quite a lengthy chart history is also the one Australian artist this week (Bene is from New Zealand by the way). Sneaking their 3rd hit for the year (and 7th overall) is Dead Letter Circus, that latest entry being "Running Out Of Time" at #39.

Wafia is retaining the top spot for a second week in a row with "I'm Good". She leads the pack of what is now an entire top 4 made of Australian women. Olympia rises to #2 with "Star City", her 3rd song to go as far as top 2. Samsaruh's former #1 "Speaking Fire" slides to #3, while E^ST continues to creep up with "I Don't Lack Imagination" at #4. The top 5 is now wholly Australian too as The Money War's "Hollywood" is up to #5, their highest charting track to date. Regular top 10 entrants Nothing But Thieves are back at it again, they now have 3 top 10 hits as "Forever & Ever More" has been left by the way of #7.


Diverse mix of entrants this week, and nothing is quite as eclectic as the title of the first entry. It's one that I thought I was remarkably late on...and by all means I am but not quite as much as I thought. Nonetheless it's finally an arrival for Denzel Curry's track which I must note in proper status goes by "BLACK BALLOONS l 13LACK 13ALLOONZ" and enters at #21. It's the first time back in the chart too for GoldLink since his #1 hit "Unique" back in 2016. It is however the first time in the chart for both Twelve'len and GoldL1nk.
Next up is an artist I thought had been absent from the chart for a while, but rather the case is that they've been charting on a yearly basis. It's now 5 years in a row that SAFIA have managed to make it onto the chart. Succeeding for them is "Starlight" at #27, their 8th chart entry to date.
It's been a bit over a year since Indiana last charted with her song "Bad Luck". It also took nearly a year after that for it to finally be released properly, with an entire album to boot. With that album she carries another new entry, her 4th to date. Instant highlight "Paper Cut" enters in very un-instant fashion at #35.
LION made her debut to the chart on the last chart of August with "Oh No". That song just dropped out this week but on the last chart of September she's replaced it with her second entry, debuting at the very same #38 as its predecessor. This one was a little quicker to reach the chart so it may have better prospects.

Here's a familiar tale for recent month, we have an Australian woman at #1. It is however, a different Australian woman to last week, but it is one who is familiar to the top spot. Olympia now scores her second #1 single with "Star City", following 2015's breakout hit "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things", which given the timing was unlucky and only spent a single week at #1. Wafia's "I'm Good" thus slides down to #2. If Olympia is to have competition, it might come from The Money War who continue to climb with "Hollywood" now up to #3. Double former #1 wielding chanteuse Samsaruh is down to #4 with "Speaking Fire", while E^ST finishes the top 5 with "I Don't Lack Imagination" at #5. The only track moving into the top 10 this week is from Dizzee Rascal, who scores his first ever top 10 hit with "Don't Gas Me" which is now up to #8 in its 3rd week on the chart. There could be more new blood in the top 10 too, with Jaguar Jonze & Bene making quick moves up the chart.


Just the three new tracks this week, and we're starting off with the freshest of the lot. In the least timely fashion, Anderson .Paak has released quite the summer jam. He's teamed up with Kendrick Lamar this week on "Tints" and it's actually the first time Kendrick has charted this year, now extending his streak of annual entries to 6 years in a row. Anderson .Paak himself had quite a busy 2016 on this chart, racking up 5 hits (4 being feature credits) which included a #1 among them. His only lead artist venture before this was "Put Me Thru" and he's now outpeaked that by quite a bit entering at #17. This also extends Kendrick Lamar's lead for having the most chart entries, now his 19th.
We can't go long amounts of time with new BROCKHAMPTON and wouldn't you know it, they're in here with another track to go along with the 2 they already have on the chart. This one is actually from their latest album however, and might not be the last track to chart from it. Impressively, "HONEY" has become their 10th chart entry, in at #30.
Curiously all of this weeks debutants can claim a #1 hit to their name. The last of these was the most recent to pull this off, but they did so most efficiently as it was with their first ever chart entry. I'm talking about Moaning Lisa who continue their hit streak for 2018, notching up a 3rd entry now with "Comfortable" at #35.

Oct 14th

Things are stable at the top end of the chart. Olympia holds the #1 spot for a 2nd week with "Star City", with Wafia retaining #2 and The Money War holding the #3 spot. Shaking up the top 5 a bit, we've got Dizzee Rascal continuing to reach new heights, with "Don't Gas Me" up 4 spots to #4, and Nothing But Thieves now have a 2nd top 5 hit with "Forever & Ever More" up to #5. Two artists hit the top 10 for the first time this week. Firstly Bene whose "Soaked" has climbed 5 spots each week and is now at #8, and then Jaguar Jonze, doing so with her first ever chart entry "You Got Left Behind" at #9.


In the world of not taking too much time between releases, Jessie Ware is back in the chart after big 2017 success particularly with her song "Midnight". While not straight in at #1, she's made another quick impact as "Overtime" bolts in ahead of the pack at #21. It's her 4th chart entry to date.
Next up we've got Julia Jacklin who has been quiet on the chart front in name only. As part of Phantastic Ferniture she's charted twice this year but on her own, she's only now netting her 2nd entry to date. "Body" is at #26.
Two Australian entrants this week, as we also welcome Ruby Fields back to the chart for the first time since "I Want" had a brief stint last year. Time will tell if she can outpeak that with 2nd chart entry "Dinosaurs" at #35.
Lastly we've already got an indie pop song by the name of "Soaked" in the chart, and now we've got an indie pop artist by the name of SOAK. They have been around for a while but this is my first time catching wind, and I've been hooked with "Everybody Loves You" which enters at #36.

Last week Olympia scored her longest running #1 to date with "Star City" and now it's been there for 3 weeks. In the runner up position for all of those 3 weeks is Wafia's "I'm Good". Continuing to move up, Dizzee Rascal scores a new peak of #3 with "Don't Gas Me", switching places with The Money War's "Hollywood" which is down to #4. Finishing up the top 5 we have Bene whose "Soaked" continues to see her through to new heights, now up 3 places to #5. There's one new track in the top 10 this week, "Tints" which is up 4 places to #7. This is Anderson .Paak's 4th top 10 hit and Kendrick Lamar's 12th. There are quite a few big movers lower down, SAFIA have "Starlight" rising up 6 places to #11, being blocked from the top 10 by a song that sounds a bit like "Over You", while Moaning Lisa score a 3rd top 20 hit with "Comfortable" up 10 places to #19, and last week's debut for SOAK, "Everybody Loves You" is up 9 places to #27.


Keeping up the Australian weekly streak for yet another week, this week's top debut is a fresh face to the chart. CREO make a very quick impression with their song "Plasticine Mezzanine" which is in at #24.
Causing an all new level of confusion this week is the next debut, which causes I believe the first ever time I've had two songs with the same title charting at the same time. I am talking about the new song from BABYMETAL which comes alongside bittersweet news with Yui leaving the group. We keep rolling on however and they now score a 4th entry with "Starlight" at #28.
It's admittedly a little bit quaint when you compare the fact that they had 7 songs charting simultaneously at the start of the year, but now I've managed to group up all the chart entries in 2018 for BROCKHAMPTON so all 4 of them have charted alongside each other this week. We have 4 because it includes a new entry from "iridescence", the opening track "NEW ORLEANS" which enters at #36. It's their 11th chart entry.
Lastly we nearly had a chance to have another pairing up of the same title on the chart if only because upon first listen to "Numb", you could very well think that it's yet another song called "Body". Nonetheless it's a very long time coming for Sabrina Claudio who has been bubbling under for months with the track, now sneaking in at #40.

It's a 4th week on top for Olympia with "Star City". That's the only song on this week's chart that hasn't moved however. Dizzee Rascal just keeps getting higher with "Don't Gas Me" up to #2, while fellow September 23rd debutant Bene is also up to #3 with "Soaked". Wafia's "I'm Good" declines to #4 while Anderson .Paak's "Tints" now finds a top 5 placing at #5. This week also nets two new top 10 entries from artists who are quite familiar with these heights. In saying that, it's been quite a while since SAFIA last hit the top 10, back in 2015 it was, but now "Starlight" gives them their 4th as it climbs to #8. BROCKHAMPTON have been occupying the top 10 quite heavily while SAFIA haven't though, and they now notch up a 7th top 10 entry with "HONEY" at #10.


It's a relative bumper week because we've got 5 debuts instead of 4. Leading the pack is the one artist here who hasn't charted before, though that's not due to lack of trying. Hatchie has in fact made the lower 40 section of the chart twice solo and once with Babaganouj, but now instantly increases her fortunes with a new song that is honestly not that different from those former songs but it's clicked with me further. "Adored" enters at #22.
Next is what sort of feels like a comeback of sorts but it's really only been a year since Lana Del Rey was last on the chart. Perhaps though with the rather ambitious "Venice Bitch" she could return the the chart heights she was seeing during the days of "Born To Die". For the time being, it sits at #26 as her 7th chart entry.
There's a new Beach House song and it ends up on my chart. I must say though that it's not particularly recognisable as Beach House, even vocally. It really does sound closer to My Bloody Valentine. Nonetheless the hits keep coming as "Alien" at #29 is their 12th chart entry to date.
Also casually amassing a respectable number of entries on the chart is Robyn, who just released her new album this week. The title track "Honey" comes through, already outpeaking prior single "Missing U" as it enters at #33. Including collaborations this is her 5th chart entry.
Lastly it's another return to the chart for an artist who last charted in 2017, in fact that was the only prior time that Chela charted with her song "Bad Habit". I will of course mention again though that she co-wrote #1 hit "Closure". New track "Shut You Up" is a collaboration with Banoffee and enters at #38.

5 weeks running for Olympia's "Star City" make it the equal 3rd longest #1 runner of the year. Creeping up behind is Bene whose "Soaked" is up 1 spot to #2, swapping places with Dizzee Rascal at #3. Anderson .Paak's "Tints" also climbs up to #4 and swaps places with Wafia's "I'm Good" at #5. So it's a quiet week in the top 5 and relatively so for the top 10 as well with just one new arrival. Jessie Ware scores her 2nd top 10 hit with "Overtime".


Just the 3 new arrivals this week. We start with a bit of a return to form for Mr Little Jeans. She charted 4 different tracks between 2012 & 2016, most notably "Oh Sailor" which reached #2. Instantly giving her, her highest chart position in over 4 years is "Unfollow" which enters at #24.
This week's Australian entry comes from Stevie Jean, which follows the single "Hell In Every Religion" which as we all know, she released a couple months ago and is thus a 2018 song, which is something I only am writing as a not-so-cryptic reference to something I said to one person earlier today (I'm also taking the piss, there's no malice). I still see her new single as a quick grower in my head, and "Estranged" becomes her first ever entry at #30.
To round out these niche debuts, we've got the most obscure of them all, a rapper who goes by the name Lil Wayne. "Mona Lisa" is actually his 2nd ever entry because he had a very small (but credited) portion on "Thank You" by Busta Rhymes about 5 years ago. It's quite an interesting narrative for a charting hit, and it also benefits from featuring Kendrick Lamar who continues to extend his lead for most chart entries, and hits a notable milestone with his 20th entry, at #35.

It's new #1 time! We've ended the tyrannical run of 10 weeks in a row with Australian women at the top, moving to the exotic location of New Zealand. For that matter, while it's often been chart veterans at the top recently, it's relative newcomer Bene who does it with just her 2nd chart entry "Soaked". Olympia is thus pushed down to #2. The next two songs also swap spots, with Anderson .Paak taking "Tints" to #3 and Dizzee Rascal down to #4 with "Don't Gas Me". For the first time in many years, SAFIA are back in the top 5, as "Starlight" moves to #5. Moving into the top 10 this week is Moaning Lisa scoring their 2nd top 10 hit with "Comfortable".


DESPACITO 2 BAYBEEEEEEEE. Well no but Luis Fonsi's here. He's done so by teaming up with Clean Bandit on their newest single. They're coming back in form scoring their 2nd entry for the year and 4th overall. It also features Marina of Diamond-related fame, assumably credited as such so it doesn't look awful. She initiates a pattern of charting every 4 years picking up her 3rd entry on "Baby" at #27.
For more regular hitmakers of late, next up is The Money War following up their recent top 5 hit "Hollywood" in timely fashion. They're now up to 5 chart entries as "Hey Now" comes in at #30.
On the topic of frustrating crediting from artists who only appear on this chart roughly every 4 years, it's the return of Washington, this time without her first name which accompanied her prior entry "Limitless" in 2014. Also notably she scores her highest ever entry with new entry "Claws" at #31, which is her 3rd entry to date.
Lastly it's a newcomer to the chart, though one who has been around in the music scene for quite some time now. Australian producer Kito gets her first ever entry with "Creature Kind", which notably features Broods by which I assume really just means it features Georgia from Broods but who can say. This is their 3rd chart entry, establishing a once every two years pattern as it comes in at #38.

Stability rules the roost. More specifically though, Bene does, with "Soaked" logging a second week at #1. Moving on up is two former #1 artists teaming up together, with Anderson .Paak & Kendrick Lamar's "Tints" at #2, moving ahead of Olympia at #3. With one of the slowest climbs in quite some time, Jaguar Jonze reaches the top 5 with "You Got Left Behind" in its 12th week, now at #4. SAFIA hold "Starlight" at its peak of #5.


It's been a long time coming. If you've been following this chart for many years, you might recall the years of 2011 to 2014 which were so largely dominated by one person. And it's confined to that time frame because for many years since then, there's been nothing else coming out the pipeline. After so much waiting primarily by me there is finally new music from Owl Eyes. She of course holds the record for the most #1's with 6. That hasn't changed as of this moment but she does score a 10th top 10 entry and 11th overall entry with thanks to new single "On Me" which enters at #8.
Speaking of Australian women who are commonly found at the top of this chart, there is another debut from a former EOY #1 artist. This time it's the more recent chart star Samsaruh. Thanks to her previous entry "Speaking Fire" she now has 2 #1 hits. Latest single "The Beginning" now scores her 7th chart entry at #23.
Now for more modest territory, earlier this year Two People scored their debut hit with "I'm Tied, To You" having a brief top 40 run. They've returned with the hope of reaching new heights with 2nd entry "In The Garden" at #34.
Lastly it's the only debutant artist of the week. We've had different shades of dance music this week, and to finish things off is the upbeat "Hurt Like Hell" from Antony & Cleopatra at #38.

Spotify top 200 smash hit artist Bene has now managed 3 weeks at #1 with "Soaked". She's holding off Anderson .Paak for a 2nd week now with "Tints" at #2. The long climb for Jaguar Jonze keeps going with "You Got Left Behind" now up to #3, leading up a run on Australian soloists. Olympia's "Star City" now sits at #4, while last week's big debut for Owl Eyes is up to a new peak of #5. She stopped SOAK from reaching in the top 10 last week but now "Everybody Loves You" has gotten to #10.


For a 2nd week in a row, it's an entirely Australian week of entries as we enter the last week of Aus Music Month. They're all artists who have had success in the past but haven't been seen on the chart this year. Firstly it's Montaigne, who has had the most success of them all with a #1 hit in "Clip My Wings" a few years ago. She now returns to the chart with her 5th entry to date, "For Your Love" at #27.
I can't lay claim to this being a new single because the band have released several more since, but I'm a bit slow. Methyl Ethel had massive breakout success last year with "Ubu" reaching #2. For their first chart entry of 2018, "Scream Whole" enters at #30, giving them 3 entries to date.
Closing things up, we have the most recently familiar of these artists, in fact Jess Locke's entire chart career started after the other two left, with 2 hits at the end of last year. She now makes it 3 with "My Body Is An Ecosystem" entering at #37.

It's 4 weeks at #1 for Bene. "Soaked" has now spent longer in the top 10 than her prior entry "Tough Guy" did in the top 40. Competition intensifies though, as very regular #1 holder Owl Eyes makes a considerable move up 3 places to #2 with "On Me" this week. It pushes aside Anderson .Paak to #3 and Jaguar Jonze to #4, the latter can at least boast having the highest Australian entry for a single week. Jessie Ware closes out the top 5 with "Overtime" which continues to climb in its 5th week in the top 10, now up to #5. New in the top 10 this week is Stevie Jean, whose first ever entry "Estranged" is doing wonders moving up 4 places to #10. It keeps another past tense verb in the form of an adjective at bay with Hatchie now up to #11 with "Adored".


Historians will be puzzled over the fact that '*artist* snapped' is an expression that existed prior to the release of Grimes' newest single. It is indeed some kind of monster but one that I'm immensely captivated by, even if it does repeat a bit more than necessary. Grimes has in the past charted 6 times, getting as high as #6 with "Flesh Without Blood" and "Kill V Maim". She may have another high charter on the way with "We Appreciate Power" entering at #18.
Next up is an artist that hasn't been seen in the chart in about 4 years, and quite a lot has happened for Hozier since "Take Me To Church" debuted all that time ago, much of that being that many more people listened to the song as well. He's not one to rest on the laurels of the one hit though, proving he can captivate elsewhere. That brings us to latest entry "Movement" which features all those captivating vocal runs with a bit more experimentation on the structure. It's his 2nd entry to date in at #33.
Speaking of artists who haven't been seen in quite a while, it's also the return of Slum Sociable. It does not feel like it has been so long but it was a little over 3 years that they briefly charted with "All Night". They've been quite active in that meantime but never really captured my attention the same way until now. They've actually already surpassed that peak as they enter at #33 with "Afterthought", which one might argue is cut from a very similar cloth to "Landmine" and "Outlaw".
Finally it's another returning artist from slightly less long ago. But being near the end of the year it's the ripe season for Cherry Glazerr to chart as that was around when they scored two hits in quick succession, notably #1 hit "Told You I'd Be With The Guys". In the off time, two thirds of the band have been replaced again, and they've again done the whole releasing a single at the end of the year for an album slated for early next year. That single is "Daddi" and it's in at #35.

This may well be the dorkiest way for things to coincide. In the 10 years I've been doing my chart, it has only twice had a chart fall on my birthday. The first time it was in 2012, the #1 song was "Clair de lune" by Flight Facilities. In the ensuing years, that song has been strongly associated with several things for me, but notedly the fact that Owl Eyes usually sings it at their live shows. Maybe it's not much of a coincidence since she's the most likely artist on any given week to be #1, but nonetheless here she is for the 7th time, with newest single "On Me" there. While we're dropping incidental data, it was also roughly 4 years ago that Flight Facilities AND Owl Eyes were #1 with "Heart Attack", so it's the best time of the year for her possibly. She replaces Bene, with "Soaked" dropping to #2 after 4 weeks spent at #1. Jaguar Jonze is back up to #3 with "You Got Left Behind", moving ahead of "Tints" at #4. Jessie Ware holds her #5 position with "Overtime". New in the top 10 this week is Grimes, who notches up her 4th top 10 hit with "We Appreciate Power" moving up very quickly from #18 to #7, a good chance to become her highest ever charter (It's also the first time in the top 10 for HANA, of course). New to the top 10 as well this week is Hatchie, scoring her first ever top 10 hit with "Adored".


Aus Music Month is long passed but the Aus music love keeps coming with the first 3 debuts this week. First of which is the most familiar charting artist of this set, though I would still hesitate to call them a veteran. The solo artist that sometimes masquerades as a band Sloan Peterson had 2 mid-level hits last year with "105" and "Rats", but now she's hit a "New Direction" with a song title that is reasonably lengthy. It also makes a good chance of becoming her highest charter as it enters at #26, 2 places below her highest position to date.
Next up we've got a newbie who has been around a while without me taking too much notice because I mostly remembered her for being on a dance song I didn't like much. But Maribelle on her own is clearly a different story, with this funky track going down a treat. "Down For You" enters at #31.
Next is the only other artist with charting history, though very little of that as well. CLEWS had their first chart entry earlier this year with "Museum" and have belatedly followed it up with "Crushed". This song premiered on the same night as "On Me" so you can see that it has taken a little while to get here, but now it's their 2nd entry at #37.
Finally we've got an even later entry, and it's a long awaited debut to the chart for Julia Holter, who previously released an album I was late on but ended up enjoying a lot. I probably should hear her newest album as well but for the time being, she finally gets an entry with "I Shall Love 2" at #38.

If you thought it was going to be a meme that would last a day, you are sorely mistaken because Owl Eyes is now #1 for a 2nd week in a row with "On Me". If you have a certain level of respect for that sort of success then the song for you could actually be "We Appreciate Power", which has now become Grimes' highest ever charter at #2. Bene slides down to #3 with "Soaked" and Jaguar Jonze continues her wild ride now at #4. It's an entirely solo female top 5 (and nearly top 10 minus 1 song) with Stevie Jean hitting the top 5 for the first time with "Estranged" at #5. Someone who isn't new to chart heights is Samsaruh, who now picks up her 4th top 10 hit with "The Beginning" at #10.


Just the two entries this week because it's late in the year and I haven't been listening to much new music. But at the very least we have a new artist here to diversify the portfolio. It's the first time in the chart for Australian singer Clea, who I know primarily for a cover of "Crimson & Clover" which I don't recall anything about but that it was a thing. She's in here with original material however, with her song "Cool Days" at #19.
From "Cool Days" to "Dumb Days", we've now got the relatively awaited return to the chart for Tired Lion, who notably have been charting fairly regularly since 2015. They are yet to score a top 10 hit, but they're now up to 7 entries with "With Or Without" entering at #34.

Owl Eyes manages a 3rd week at #1 which means "On Me" has matched the reigns of many of her former #1 hits, in fact the last 4 of them all lasted exactly 3 weeks, so it would be quite a feat if it lasted longer. Making that tough could be Grimes who remains seated at #2 with "We Appreciate Power". Aside from her we've also got other songs moving up, Stevie Jean reaching #3 with "Estranged" and SOAK's "Everybody Loves You" now up to #5. Bene finishes off the top 5 with "Soaked" at #4, perhaps a little less likely to take back the top spot, but now managing a 10th week in the top 5. Moving into the top 10 this week is a newbie to these heights, with Two People considerably improving on first chart hit "I'm Tied, To You" as now "In The Garden" has climbed up to #9.


It's an extravaganza this week by which I mean 5 new entries instead of the usual 4. Mainly helped by me listening to music frantically to fill out an end of year list, and as a result, the first of these isn't remotely new! Out of nowhere by virtue of me being lucky to come across the song, Australian band Tonight Alive who I have mostly been indifferent to in the past have shown me the way and I ended up enjoying a decent amount of their new album. Notably though, I rep for "The Other" which enters at #24.
Next up it's a long time in between entries for Jax Jones! In fact his only prior entry comes from a guest spot when she sung on Duke Dumont's "I Got U"...wait that doesn't sound right. Though in fairness he's had his attempts with close runs on "U Don't Know Me" and "Instruction". Anyway, this time he's teamed up with Years & Years with an ugly crediting which I'm of course commiting to. Years & Years also had a narrow miss on the chart with "Palo Santo" though they had a top 10 hit in "Sanctify" to balance that. So "Play" is their 5th chart entry, in at #29.
Next up is a quite good pop artist whose music is worth more attention than it gets. I don't know why I felt the need to phrase it like that. Anyway making the chart for the first time is Nina Nesbitt with her track "Colder" at #32.
Also making the chart for the first time, an Australian band, and one that I've seen live before. Little May make their first impression with "Lover" at #36.
To pile on further with first time charting artists we now have another with Odette! She is perhaps aided by teaming up with the much more familiar to this chart Gretta Ray, who accumulated 5 chart entries prior to this one. New track "A Place That I Don't Know" enters at #39.

For the final chart of the year, Owl Eyes retains the top spot with "On Me" for a 4th week in a row. Staying at #2 is Grimes with "We Appreciate Power" while Stevie Jean also retains #3 with "Estranged". SOAK has the new honour of relatively old song reaching new peak, with "Everybody Loves You" climbing to #4 in its 12th week, ahead of Bene's "Soaked" now down to #5. Sneaking her way into the top 10 for the first time ever is Washington with "Claws" at #10.


Relatively eclectic this week. Starting off we have an artist who I previously thought was just an actress! Getting her first entry to date is Charlotte Gainsbourg with "Such A Remarkable Day" at #26.
The other new artist to the chart this week is 21 Savage, although technically he did contribute to Childish Gambino's top 10 hit "This Is America". Nonetheless this time he's striking out on his own and it's his turn to not credit his guests so I can continue to pretend that J. Cole has never made my chart. The opening track to his rather good new album, "a lot" is in at #32.
Next up is the most recently familiar artist to the chart, but by far the most obscure. It's also the sole Australian entry who makes for a whole calendar year of at least 1 Australian debut per week. It's the return to the chart for AViVA who a few months ago scored a #21 hit with "Hushh". She's now even more off the wall with new single "Blame It On The Kids" which enters at #33.
Finally we have to close up 2018 somehow so, "thank u, next".

Hoping to put a better effort into commenting this year, but I have been sampling plenty of your entries as part of my needlessly long playlisting to make up for it. Shame that Daddi isn't doing as well on your chart but the top end of the chart is really solid. The debuts are all good but especially cool to see Ariana.
