Drake Extends Streak Atop Australia's Singles Chart
Drake is still looking down from above with “God’s Plan” (Republic/Universal), which enters a fourth week atop Australia’s singles chart, while the soundtrack to The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) snags an eighth consecutive week at the crest of the albums survey.
“God’s Plan,” lifted from the Canadian rapper’s Scary Hours EP, extends its chart reign following the release of its official video, which sees Drizzy give away nearly US$ 1 million to Miami residents. Drake’s latest hit is now platinum certified in Australia (70,000 units).
A week after cracking the top ten, Kendrick Lamar& SZA’s “All The Stars” (Interscope/Universal), powers to a new peak, rising 5-2 on the ARIA Singles Chart. It’s Lamar’s second single to hit No. 2 after “Humble.” did so in April 2017. “All The Stars” is one of two K. Dot tracks from Black Panther: The Album to impact the top 10 this week. The other, “Pray For Me,” a collaboration with the Weeknd, rises 12-10. “Pray” is the Canadian artist’s fifth top ten single and Lamar’s third.
The top five is completed by Rudimental’s“These Days” (EastWest/Warner), down 2-3; Bebe Rexha& Florida Georgia Line’s“Meant To Be” (Warner); unchanged at No. 4; and Post Malone’s “I Fall Apart” (Universal), slipping 3-5.
The highest debut this week comes from Khalid& Normani’s “Love Lies” (RCA/Sony), new at No. 29, while seven homegrown tracks impact the top 50, including Delta Goodrem’s latest number, “Think About You” (Sony), new at No. 32.
With The Greatest Showman locking-down top spot on the ARIA Albums Chart, Black Panther: The Album (Interscope/Universal) settles for another week at No. 2. Homegrown pop-rock outfit Ball Park Music (Stop Start/Inertia) collect a fourth top ten with Good Mood, new at No. 5, as New Zealand singer-songwriter Marlon Williams grabs a career-high with his sophomore album, Make Way For Love (Caroline/Universal), new at No. 8.
