Drake, ‘Mamma Mia’ Clinch Australia’s Chart Crowns

Drake’s “In My Feelings” (Republic/Universal) rules the ARIA Singles Chart for a third week as the soundtrack to Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (Polydor/Universal) enters a second week atop Australia’s albums survey. 

“In My Feelings” has been propelled to No. 1 on both sides of the Atlantic thanks to a viral dance sensation that that can be traced back to an Instagram post by funnyman Shiggy.  The track is enjoying a fresh boost following the release late week of its official music video.

With Drizzy holding onto top spot, homegrown singer and songwriter Dean Lewis’ “Be Alright” (Island/Universal) rises 3-2, a new high, as 5 Seconds Of Summer’s hit “Youngblood” (Capitol/EMI) slips 2-3 and Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” (Interscope/Universal) featuring Cardi B holds at No. 4. 

In its third week on the tally, Benny Blanco’s “Eastside” (Interscope/Universal) featuring Halsey and Khalid vaults 12-5 to become the U.S. producer and DJ’s first-ever stint in the top 10.

Meanwhile, DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber & Quavo featuring Chance the Rapper’s “No Brainer” (Universal/Sony) is the week’s highest debutant, opening at No. 6, just over a year the same lineup topped the singles chart with “I’m The One.”

And just two places below, at No. 8, 6ix9ine lands his first entry on the ARIA Singles Chart with “Fefe” (Caroline/Universal) featuring Nicki Minaj & Murda Beatz.

On the ARIA Albums Chart, Mamma Mia holds off Drake’s Scorpion and the Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) soundtrack. As she completes the first week of her national arena tour, Celine Dion’s The Best So Far…2018 Tour Edition (Columbia/Sony) improves 11-4, a new high.

Also this week, Australian country singer Adam Harvey enjoys a top 10 bow with The Nashville Tapes (at No. 9 via Sony), while Sydney producer Golden Features just misses out on the top tier with Sect (Warner), new at No. 11.
