There was a bit of a challenge for the top spot, but it wouldn't really be the best time to change hands just yet, not when "The Opener" has almost singlehandedly started another dialogue about female representation of festival line ups. So it's two weeks at #1 for Camp Cope, as they fend off BROCKHAMPTON's now outright highest charter "BOOGIE" which rises to #2, pushing Kira Puru back to #3 with "Tension". N*E*R*D & Kendrick Lamar continue their hasty ascent with "Don't Don't Do It!" now at #4, while King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have their first ever top 5 with "Crumbling Castle" at #5. Rising into the top 10 this week we've got two new songs, with Baker Boy's "Marryuna" up 5 places to #7, and Jess Locke's "Violent Turn" up 3 to #8, the first top 10 entry for both of these artists.
January is always a slow time, but by some miracle I do manage to kick things off with a song that actually came out in 2018. It's the first time in the chart for the ever-so-wacky Superorganism, whose new single "Everybody Wants To Be Famous" was rather instant with me, coming in at #30. Next up for something different, here's some Australian metalcore. I may or may not be influenced by their entertaining instagram posts that I've been seeing for reasons, but also Polaris do the job of having a clean vocalist that doesn't sound dreadful and instead rather good. So we've got a super late new entry for "The Remedy" at #35, their first chart entry. Our sole debuting veterans go quite far back, though they don't have many entries to their name, this being only their 4th. They first charted in 2008 though, they're just slow to release new albums. Nonetheless for the first time since 2014, I welcome Augie March back to the chart with their oddly titled "Bootikins" at #38.
If you are in need for a good time, I have just the little ditty for you, as those lovely gents in Brockhampton have scored themselves their first #1 hit with a song called "Boogie", certainly befitting of this tone. Also BREAK NECKS, I'M THE CHIROPRACTOR, COME ON DOWN, YOU KNOW I GOT YA. Nonetheless this is our first new #1 of the year, as it replaces 2017's carry over #1 from Camp Cope who are down to #2. N*E*R*D continue to see new heights with their Kendrick Lamar collaboration "Don't Don't Do It!" which is up to #3, and in fact all their stuff is up this week. Kira Puru's "Tension" slides to #4, while Baker Boy can proudly sit at #5 with "Marryuna". Two big former #1's leave the top 10 this week, and so replacing them, we have yet another BROCKHAMPTON tune, that being "ZIPPER" up to #6 to be their 4th top 10 hit, while Kelsey Bulkin is charting there for the first time with "West Coast Drama" at #10. Nothing But Thieves will be hoping to see "I'm Not Made By Design" climb as it has so far matched "Broken Machine"'s unlucky peak of #11.
Not a busy week for debuts as I have not had new music on my mind, but we do have a few, and one of them actually came out this year. That is the top debut, and it's from MGMT, who actually have "Little Dark Age" dropping out this week so they've replaced it with their 3rd single from their upcoming album, "Hand It Over" at #33. This album hasn't been released but it's already landed as many entries as "Congratulations" did. All up, they now have 12 entries to their name. Next up we have a big 2016 one hit wonder finally shedding that status on this chart, with Wafia getting her first chart entry since the big top 5 hit "Love Somebody". This time she's out on her own for "Only Love" which debuts at #36. And lastly because we can never have enough N*E*R*D around, they have a debut out of order because this one took longer to grow on me, but now they've got 3 entries courtesy of Future collaboration "1000" at #38. This is Future's 2nd entry, after 2015's "Jumpman".
2 weeks at #1 for "BOOGIE" and the top 3 remains static, with Camp Cope at #2, and N*E*R*D at #3. Moving up however is Baker Boy to #4 with "Marryuna", while BROCKHAMPTON get another song in the top 5 with "ZIPPER". Just one mover into the top 10 this week, with Nothing But Thieves finally getting a 2nd top 10 hit in "I'm Not Made By Design" at #9.
Getting slightly better at moving into the new year as we've got 3 new entries that all were released this year. The first of which is a not very long awaited return to the chart for Sarah Blasko just 2 weeks after her previous single last charted. And incidentally, this new one gives her a new chart height yet again, as "A Shot" goes in all the way up at #13. It's her 3rd charting single to date. Now we've got what is surely the longest gap between charting entries, as it has been 9 and a half years since Cog last graced this chart. Largely because they hadn't released anything in that time. Now they're back in all their dodgy facial hair glory, with new track "The Middle" coming in at #23. They previously charted at #1 & #2 with "Say Your Last Goodbye" and "Are You Interested?", so this is their 3rd charting entry to date. Lastly we've got a debutant that probably shouldn't be but I missed the boat before hand. Kali Uchis of course contributed to Tyler, The Creator's wonderful "See You Again" last year, and that song has now been quoted by Bootsy Collins of all people on the intro to her new song "After The Storm", which Tyler incidentally appears on. He's the only chart veteran here, as he picks up his 2nd appearance with this in at #34.
