Nothing seems to be slowing down the Black Eyed Peas on the Aussie singles chart this week, while over on the albums chart, it's another week on top for rapper Eminem.
SINGLES : The Black Eyed Peas are atop the Aussie singles chart for another week - and they're there by selling 3647 copies more than the second placed getter Eminem. The BEPs sold 13,648 copies of 'Boom Boom Pow' last week to cement their place on top. The Pussycat Dolls' tour of the country means their Slumdog Millionaire inspired hit 'Jai Ho' climbs ever so slightly back towards the top spot - up to No.3 this week, while further down the top ten, Rob Thomas debuts with 'Her Diamonds' - it sells 6576 copies to nab the No.8 position. Miley's 'The Climb' slides slightly, while at No.10, Linkin Park return to the charts with 'New Divide' selling 4930 copies. Sidney Samson's club hit 'Riverside' keeps finding new fans, moving up the charts to No.12 (up 13 places) on the back of 4262 sales and another act making a headway into the top 30 is country starlet Taylor Swift. Her new track 'You Belong With Me' bullets from No.43 to No.21 after 3240 sales last week. Further down the top 50, there are debuts for Dizzee Rascal (No.30), Pussycat Dolls (No.31), Kid Cudi (No.44) and Keri Hilson (No.49), while just outside it, Lady Gaga scores another top 100 debut with 'Paparazzi' coming in at No.73 after 861 sales.
PHYSICAL SINGLES : Physically, it's the Black Eyed Peas stealing the top spot from Eminem here this week, while Cameron Tapp's bushfire fundraising track 'Lest We Forget' comes in at No.5. The Hilltop Hoods 'Chase That Feeling' all the way into the No.14 spot here (up 33 places), with Rob Thomas placing just one position behind at No.15. Down at No.33, the Presets roll in with 'If I Know You' while Bon Iver makes a deposit at No.46 with his 'Blood Bank'.
DIGITAL TRACKS : As with physically, it's all Black Eyed Peas over on the digital charts this week, with the Pussycat Dolls making a charge on the back of their current Aussie tour. It's here Rob Thomas makes his greatest impact on the Aussie charts. His new single 'Her Diamonds' debuting at No.5. Labelmates Linkin Park rocket up 27 places into the No.10 spot with 'New Divide', while Taylor Swift makes her debut a little lower down at No.24. Eminem's second official single from 'Relapse', '3AM' debuts here at No.30, and there's a debut a few places down at No.34 from Canadian soft-rockers Nickelback.
ALBUMS : The numbers might be slightly softer after last week's dizzying highs, but the result is still the same - it's a 'one, two' on the albums chart for Eminem and Green Day. They sold 18,390 and 10,115 copies of their respective albums last week. With the band currently touring the country and the album repackaged, the Pussycat Dolls' 'Doll Domination' races back into the top 10 at No.8 (3407 copies), while The Script aren't too many off the pace at No.9 (3255 copies). Debuts at No.12 for Marilyn Manson (2838 copies) and No.13 for Phoenix (2833 copies) show that had just six more people bought Phoenix's album last week, they'd be in the No.12 spot! Incredible ticket sales for AC/DC's sell-out 2010 concert tour have spurred fans into stores again, with the band moving back up to No.19 with 'Black Ice'. There's a Simon & Garfunkel 'Live On Stage' compilation debuting at No.36 (1098 copies), and superstar Pink now occupies five places out of the top 50 - Nos.3, 17, 31, 37 and 41. Melody Gardot's desperately amazing album 'My One And Only Thrill' debuts at No.88 on the back of sporadic TV advertising (482 copies).
