Vance Joy's hit "Riptide" (Liberation Music) has established a new record for the most weeks in the Top 100 of Australia’s singles chart. The Melbourne singer-songwriter’s breakthrough song has now spent 107 consecutive weeks on the ARIA Singles Chart. Vance’s chart feat bests the 106 weeks set by Lady Gaga’s "Poker Face" and the 105 weeks for The Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling," neither of which were consecutive runs.
"Riptide" bowed on the singles chart in Vance’s homeland on April 29, 2013, and peaked at No. 6 on Feb. 3, 2014. According to ARIA, it spent five weeks in the Top 10 and 45 weeks in the Top 50. The next best result by a homegrown recording belongs to Gotye’s "Somebody That I Used To Know," which stayed in the Top 100 for 89 weeks from 2011 to 2013.
