Australian Charts: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper ‘Shallow’ Stays at No 1

For a third week in Australia (and New Zealand) the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper duet “Shallow” has held on to the top spot on the ARIA Singles Chart.

“Shallow” and it’s parent soundtrack ‘A Star is Born’ hold the tops of both the single and album charts for a third week, the last time that a single and its soundtrack held for this long was back in late February of 2015 when ’50 Shades of Grey’ and its lead single “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding held the tops of both charts for three weeks too. Next week will be the ten year anniversary since Lady Gaga’s second and longest running No.1 song “Poker Face” (from 17-Nov, 2008 for 8 weeks), and with a third week at the top for “Shallow” it increases her tally of weeks at No.1 this decade to now four, moving her up to equal 25th on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Singles; 2010’s’ alongside Jason DeRulo (3 No.1, 4 weeks in total), while on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Singles (1940 to 2018) she moves from 74th to now equal 63rd with an overall total of 13 weeks at the summit here, putting her in equal stead with Taylor Swift (5 #1’s), Lionel Richie (3 #1’s) and Doris Day (2 #1’s). And with “Shallow” holding for a third week it’s the longest stay at No.1 for a female singer since Camil Cabello and her “Havana” track logged three weeks at the summit from the 20th of November, 2017.

Ariana Grande surprised everyone last week when she dropped a new track from a forthcoming fifth studio album (although her current album ‘Sweetener’ only came out 12 weeks ago) which is due before Christmas, and the single is also the albums title, coming in at No.2 is “thank u, next” which she sung on Ellen this past week, and the song also enters at No.1 in England and Ireland, plus No.2 in New Zealand this week too. This new entry becomes her ninth Top 10 single in Australia and her fifth Top 3 single, while also her fourth Top 10 single for 2018, plus the song debuts at No.1 on the streaming chart and comes in at No.3 on the digital singles chart.

Ariana’s high entry pushes down former No.1 “Shotgun” for George Ezra one spot to No.3, while Halsey and her latest track “Without Me” rise one spot to a new peak of No.4 and it’s newly certified Gold (●) in sales, while down two spots each are “Happier” for Marshmello with Bastille and Benny Blanco with Khalid and Halsey on “Eastside” to No.5 and No.6 respectively, while on hold at No.7 is last weeks Top 10 entry “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee. Dean Lewis drops two places to No.8 with his long running Top 10 single “Be Alright” (17 weeks within the Top 10) and down one place to No.9 is Loud Luxury and “Body”, while on hold at No.10 are Calvin Harris and Sam Smith with “Promises”, which could go back up next week as Sam started his Australian tour late last week (also he went to the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday too).
