ARIA Top 100 Albums and Singles 2012 chart released!
The pop star’s record ‘The Truth About Love’ nabbed the top spot, selling more than five times platinum last year – closely followed by One Direction’s ‘Up All Night’ which exceeded triple platinum sales.
Guy Sebastian did his country proud yet again, with his track ‘Battle Scars’ nabbing a spot at number three. Along with Birdy, the singer is the only other artist in 2012 to contribute both a single and an album to the top 10 lists.
Other Aussies to make their mark on music in 2012 include Justice Crew, whose smash hit ‘Boom Boom’ came in at number seven on the singles chart, Karise Eden for her number six placing on the album chart with ‘My Journey,’ and Hilltop Hoods’ album ‘Drinking From The Sun,’ which sits at number 13.
