Ed Sheeran's 'Perfect' Bags Another Chart Crown Down Under
Ed Sheeran grabs another week at No. 1 on Australia’s singles chart with “Perfect” (Atlantic/Warner) as the soundtrack to The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) rises to the zenith of the national albums survey. The triple-platinum “Perfect” enters a fifth straight week atop the ARIA Singles Chart and collects another Streaming Singles crown. The track was one of four Sheeran songs to crack the top 10 in ARIA’s recently-published year-end singles tally and it's lifted from the English singer’s Divide, the best-selling album of 2017 in Australia. Also on the singles chart this week, Camila Cabello’s “Havana” (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug holds at No. 2, Eminem’s “River” (Interscope/Universal) featuring Sheeran is unchanged at No. 3, Post Malone’s“I Fall Apart” (Universal) improves 5-4 and Marshmellox Khalid’s“Silence” (RCA/Sony) gains 7-5. The highest-ranked homegrown track on the current survey comes from Pnau, whose track “Go Bang” (Universal) improves 19-13, as a pair of new entries impact the top 50: Keala Settle and The Greatest Showman Ensemble's “This Is Me” (it’s at No. 34 via Atlantic/Warner), from the week’s best-selling album, and Camelphat & Elderbrook’s club tune “Cola” (ADA/Warner) at No. 48. Meanwhile, The Greatest Showman leads a top five comprised of albums which have all logged time at the summit: Sheeran’s Divide (Warner),Pink’s Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony), Eminem's Revival (Interscope/Universal) and Taylor Swift’sReputation (Big Machine/Universal), respectively.
