Gnash, Deftones Bump Lukas Graham from Australia's Chart Peaks
Lukas Graham’s glorious run at the summit of Australia’s charts has come to an abrupt end thanks to recordings from Gnash and Deftones.
Gnash Feat. Olivia O'Brien’s “I Hate U, I Love U” (Atlantic/Warner) rises 5-1 in it fourth week to nail down the top position on the ARIA Singles Chart, knocking off Lukas Graham’s double-platinum “7 Years” (Warner) after a record breaking seven weeks (no other Danish act has held the top spot for as long). It’s the first No. 1 Down Under for either Gnash or O’Brien.
Alan Walker’s “Faded” (Sony) holds at No. 2 while The Chainsmokers land its equal highest peak with "Don’t Let Me Down" (Columbia/Sony) Feat. Daya, which is up 7-3 (#SELFIE reached No. 3 in April 2014). The top five is completed by Fifth Harmony Feat. Ty Dolla $ign’s “Work From Home” (Syco/Sony) and Lukas Graham’s “7 Years,” respectively.
The big climbers on this week’s chart include Drake Feat. Wizkid & Kyla’s “One Dance” (Interscope/Universal), up 43-15; Tinie Tempah Feat. Zara Larsson’s “Girls Like” (Parlophone/Warner), up 28-17; and Dua Lipa’s “Be The One” (Warner), up 41-28.
Meanwhile, Deftones’ eighth album Gore (Warner) opens at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, ending Lukas Graham’s chart-topping stretch at just one week. It’s Deftones' first No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, eclipsing their previous best of No. 2 with 2000’s White Pony.
The next best on this week's survey is The Lumineers’ Cleopatra (Dualtone/Universal), which starts at No. 2, a bow which beats the folk-rock outfit’s No. 7 peak for their self-titled debut from April 2013. The top five is rounded out by Adele’s juggernaut 25 (XL/Inertia), down 2-3, Disturbed’s Immortalized (Reprise/Warner), up 6-4 and the Molly TV soundtrack (Liberation/Universal), down 4-5. There’s top 20 debuts on this week’s list for Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals’ Call It What It Is (No. 11 via Stax/Universal) and M83’s Junk (No. 12 via POD/Inertia).
