Owl City and Susan Boyle continue to dominate ARIA Singles and Album Charts

Owl City‘s ARIA Singles Chart assault gathers momentum this week, as the digital-only track “Fireflies” holds at the top of the chart for the second week straight. The single also remains in peak position on the ARIA Digital Track Chart for the third consecutive week. Topping the ARIA Album Chart for the seventh week running is Susan Boyle’s debut release “I Dreamed A Dream”, which eclipses the 500,000 unit mark in cumulative Australian sales this week after coming in at No.18 on the ARIA End of Decade Album Chart.

Climbing three spots to #4 on the ARIA Singles Chart is Jay-Z (featuring Alicia Keys) with “Empire State Of Mind”, which revisits its number four peak for the second time since December 2009. After topping the ARIA 2009 Top 100 Singles Chart and taking out #3 on the ARIA End of Decade Singles Chart, The Black Eyed Peas‘ “I Gotta Feeling” races up five spots to #10, achieving its twenty-first week in the top 10. The single makes a comeback after dropping down to #22 a couple of weeks ago, entering the top 10 for the first time since the end of October 2009. “Rock That Body”, the fourth single from the Black Eyed Peas‘ smash album “The E.N.D.” jumps a huge nine spots to #18, as The Temper Trap‘s “Sweet Disposition” shoots up thirteen spots to #23 in its sixth week on the chart. Chart debuts this week include “Memories” from David Guetta (featuring Kid Cudi) and “Do You Remember?” from Jay Sean, coming in at #35 and 37 respectively.


In ARIA Album Chart news this week, Michael Buble‘s “Crazy Love” continues to hold in second position. The album, which took out #6 spot on the ARIA 2009 Top 100 Album Chart, has spent its entire thirteen week chart run in the top 6, with twelve of those weeks in the top 3. Claiming its fifth week in the top 10 is “Sigh No More”, the debut release from UK folk outfit Mumford & Sons, which climbs six spots to #7. The album spent its first four weeks on the chart in the top 10 before sliding to #22 and then rebounding. P!nk‘s mammoth release “Funhouse” holds at #10, achieving its fifty-second week in the top 10 after coming in at #2 on both the ARIA 2009 Top 100 Album Chart and the ARIA End of Decade Album Chart. It closes in on the sixty-eight week top 10 run achieved by her previous album “I’m Not Dead” in 2006-2007. In Australia for a national tour, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs race up eleven spots to #24 with their acclaimed record “It’s Blitz!”, as the Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel soundtrack scores a #39 debut.

Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” remains at #2 on the ARIA Digital Tracks Chart, as “I Gotta Feeling” and “Rock That Body” from The Black Eyed Peas race up the chart to hit #10 and 16 respectively. “Do You Remember?” from Jay Sean enters the chart at #35, with “Memories” from David Guetta (featuring Kid Cudi) debuting just below at #36.
