ARIA Chart News – w/c 21 Dec 2009

Susan Boyle continues to move from strength to strength on the ARIA Album Chart, achieving a fourth consecutive week at number one with her debut album “I Dreamed A Dream”, selling over 100,000 units and chalking up the fourth highest sales week since 1997, when ARIA began compiling charts using electronically scanned sales data. Only Guy Sebastian in 2003, Shannon Noll in 2004 and Damian Leith in 2006 have sold more albums in a single week in this time. The album has been certified six times platinum since its release, placing it on track to become one of the biggest selling albums of the year. Ke$ha’s hit track “Tik Tok” claims its seventh straight week at the top of the ARIA Singles and Digital Track Charts, placing it on par with Flo Rida’s “Right Round”, The Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” and “Sexy Bitch” from David Guetta as one of the year’s longest running number one singles – one more week at the top will give Ke$ha the longest running No.1 single of 2009.
