Vanessa Amorosi, Michael Buble and P!nk top ARIA Charts on debut this week!

Vanessa Amorosi swoops on top spot on the ARIA Singles Chart this week with her hit “This Is Who I Am”, scoring her first ever No.1 single and at the same time, ending the seven-week chart topping run of David Guetta‘s “Sexy Bitch” (feat. Akon). It’s the first single to hit No.1 on debut since Flo Rida‘s “Right Round” back in February, and only the second to have achieved this feat in the past twenty-two months. “This Is Who I Am” becomes Vanessa’s fifth ARIA top 10 single, surpassing the No.4 peaks achieved by “Shine” in 2000 and “Perfect” in 2008. Vanessa also becomes the first Aussie artist to claim simultaneous No.1’s on the ARIA Physical and Digital Track Charts since “Sweet About Me” from Gabriella Cilmi in June 2008.
