Avicii’s Still Number One, But How Far Can Lorde Go?

Jul 20th 2013 | 7:00pm | Staff Writer
Avicii's Wake Me Up had no trouble holding top spot on the ARIA Singles Chart this week, leading OneRepublic and Robin Thicke - who hold down second and third spots - by some way.

The biggest jump in the pointy end of the chart is New Zealand youngster Lorde, who has hit the number four position with her acclaimed The Love Club EP, which features the much loved single Royals. She's up from 14 last week to lock in her highest spot yet – can she take the top position? She also holds down 40th spot with Tennis Court.   

Matt Corby has crept up the singles chart a little more this week, up four places to spend the week in sixth spot, while Vance Joy also finds himself higher than ever, his Riptide coming in at number 12 this week.

Passenger's new single Holes didn't do too much in its first week, the Irish singer-songwriter – whose number one single Let Her Go spends its 19th week in the chart this week – debuting in spot number 30. Ellie Goulding had the best debut this week, her Burn track hitting number 14 in its first week on the chart.

Her absolutely enormous current Australian tour has been enough to shoot P!nk's latest album The Truth About Love to the top of the ARIA Albums Chart for the third separate time this week, despite the record being released back in September of last year.

She leap-frogged last week's top two in The Voice winner Harrison Craig and Jay Z (no hyphen anymore!) who sit in second and third respectively.

Jay Z is lucky to be there, though, with Robin Thicke's new album Blurred Lines almost debuting in the third spot, only just getting pipped by Hova to end up in fourth spot for its first week on the charts, despite the almighty success of its title track as a single over the past couple of months. Pet Shop Boys debuted in 24th spot this week with their excellent latest LP Electric.

Josh Pyke's latest The Beginning And The End Of Everything was the biggest drop of the week, taking 20th spot after debuting at 7 last week.
