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.
Heading to the altar (again)! Though Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin quietly wed last year, the young couple are gearing up to host a more official ceremony. Bieber, 25, and Baldwin, 22, reconciled their on-and-off relationship in May 2018 before announcing their engagement two months later. They secretly tied the knot in a New York City courthouse that September. The “Sorry” singer and model celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary on September 13. “1 year of being your Mrs.,” Baldwin captioned an Instagram Stories snap of the duo. “It’s easier, because we’ve found a rhythm,” she said of their marriage. “We have more fun together, which is what should happen when you spend more time with someone you love.”
One would assume that the bald fella in the new Pitbull video is, well, Pitbull. But fans of 'Mr Worldwide' are being played all along, as a suited gentleman with a bald head and loafers with no socks ogles a series of gyrating women. As the clip for Pitbull's new single 3 To Tango enters its climactic final act, the suited gent in the seat stands up, and we discover that it was none other than... John Travolta all along. He then joins three ladies to show off his tango skills. It's not all as random as it seems – Travolta and the Miami-born rapper are, for some reason, pals. The Pulp Fiction star said back in February: “A good friend, Armando Perez, Pitbull, he lives his life like this.
It's a good time to be a pop music fan. In a week that's seen new releases from Kelly Clarkson, Zayn Malik and more stars, Sam Smith has released "Too Good at Goodbyes," his first single since the 2015 release of his Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning "Writing's on the Wall," the theme song for the James Bond film Spectre. Written with Jimmy Napes and Stargate, "Too Good at Goodbyes" heralds the return of one of music's most celebrated artists. "This song is about a relationship I was in and it's basically about getting good at getting dumped," Smith, 25, says in a statement. "It's been a long while since I've put any music out and I feel that this first single sets the tone of what is to come."
