TRIPLE J’s annual list of the Hottest 100 songs has sparked a welcome sales boost for some of the country’s biggest acts.
Australian Idol runner-up Matt Corby, whose haunting track ‘Brother’ was voted third in the famous listener poll, enjoyed a meteoric rise up the ARIA singles chart with his newest release ‘Into The Flame’.
The gold-selling song soared into eighth position from 42 in just a week.
Adelaide hip-hoppers Hilltop Hoods achieved similar success thanks to ‘Love It’, a collaboration with pop star Sia, which jumped eight spots on the chart to 11.
The track was ranked 10th in the Australian-dominated Hottest 100.
Sydney band Boy & Bear also faired well, returning to the albums chart in ninth position with their platinum record Moonfire. The ARIA Award-winning group scored a total of three songs in the Triple J vote.
Meanwhile Belgian DJ Laurent Wery’s hit dance track ‘Hey Hey Hey’, featuring Swiftkid, has shot up eight spots to number two on the singles chart, just behind ‘Wild Ones’ by Flo Rida featuring Sia in pole position.
Adele has unsurprisingly held onto the number one spot on the albums front with 21.
The British songstress has yet again fended off Foster The People’s latest record Torches and Resolution by heavy metal band Lamb of God, which debuted at number three. – AAP
