Chalking up a fourth consecutive week at number one on the ARIA Singles Chart is Owl City with their smash hit “Fireflies”, accruing five weeks straight on top of the ARIA Digital Track Chart at the same time. Susan Boyle continues to break chart records in Australia and overseas, with “I Dreamed A Dream” holding at the pinnacle of the ARIA Album Chart for the ninth consecutive week. Boyle this week matches P!nk’s mammoth album “Funhouse”, which held down the No.1 spot for nine weeks running in November/December 2008.

The Black Eyed Peas meanwhile continue to impact the singles chart, with “Rock That Body” up four spots to #8 and “Meet Me Halfway” and “I Gotta Feeling” sitting at #22 and 23 respectively. “Rock That Body” is the fourth single to hit the top 10 from their current album “The E.N.D.”, which spawned three number one singles through 2009. “Memories” from David Guetta (featuring Kid Cudi) jumps seven spots to #17, as Jay Sean’s “Do You Remember?” blasts up a huge eleven spots to #18.

Following country music’s night of nights in Tamworth on Saturday, Golden Guitar winners The McClymonts swoop on the ARIA Album Chart #2 position with their new album “Wrapped Up Good”. Obliterating their previous chart peak of #37 with 2007’s “Chaos & Bright Lights”, “Wrapped Up Good” becomes the first Australian release to hit the top 5 this year.
