The ARIA Charts, stylised as the AR1A CHARTS since November 2018, are the main Australian music sales charts, issued weekly by the Australian Recording Industry Association. ARIA Charts_sentence_1

The charts are a record of the highest selling songs and albums in various genres in Australia. ARIA Charts_sentence_2

ARIA became the official Australian music chart in June 1988, succeeding the Kent Music Report which had been Australia's national music sales charts since 1974. ARIA Charts_sentence_3

History ARIA Charts_section_0

The Go-Set charts were Australia's first national singles and albums charts, published from 5 October 1966 until 24 August 1974. ARIA Charts_sentence_4

Succeeding Go-Set, the Kent Music Report began issuing the national top 100 charts in Australia from May 1974. ARIA Charts_sentence_5

The compiler, David Kent, also published Australia's national charts from 1940 to 1974 in a retrospective fashion using state based data. ARIA Charts_sentence_6

In mid 1983, the Australian Recording Industry Association commenced licensing the Kent Music Report chart. ARIA Charts_sentence_7

The first printed national top 50 chart available in record stores, branded the Countdown chart, was dated the week ending 10 July 1983. ARIA Charts_sentence_8

ARIA began compiling its own charts in-house from the chart survey dated 13 June 1988, corresponding with the printed top 50 chart dated week ending 26 June 1988. ARIA Charts_sentence_9

Various artists compilation albums were initially included in the albums chart, as they had been on the Kent Report chart, until 2 July 1989, when a separate Compilations chart was created. ARIA Charts_sentence_10

The ARIA Report, detailing the top 100 singles and albums charts, was first available via subscription in January 1990. ARIA Charts_sentence_11

The printed top 50 chart ceased publication in June 1998, but resumed publication later in the year. ARIA Charts_sentence_12

The printed top 50 chart again ceased publication at the end of 2000. ARIA Charts_sentence_13

Since 17 February 1997, all physical sales data contributing towards the chart has been recorded electronically at point of sale. ARIA Charts_sentence_14

In March 1991, "Do the Bartman" by The Simpsons was the first single to reach #1 in Australia that was not available on 7-inch vinyl, but cassingle only. ARIA Charts_sentence_15

In April 2006, ARIA began publishing the Digital Tracks Chart, counting download sales data from providers such as iTunes and BigPond Music. ARIA Charts_sentence_16

Starting from 9 October 2006, digital sales data was integrated into the singles chart alongside physical sales, although singles were required to have a physical release to be included. ARIA Charts_sentence_17

From 5 November 2007, the eligibility rules were widened so that singles only available digitally could chart, and "Apologize" by Timbaland was the first single to enter the chart purely on digital sales. ARIA Charts_sentence_18

In February 2008, "Don't Stop the Music" by Rihanna became the first single to reach number one on digital sales alone. ARIA Charts_sentence_19

In May 2006, it was announced that the Brazin retailing group, comprising HMV, Sanity and Virgin Megastore outlets, would no longer contribute sales data to the ARIA charts. ARIA Charts_sentence_20

However, after a five-month absence, Brazin reportedly re-commenced contributing sales figures on 26 November 2006. ARIA Charts_sentence_21

On 10 December 2012, ARIA launched the Streaming Tracks Chart, tracking audio streaming data from services such as Spotify, and later Apple Music. ARIA Charts_sentence_22

ARIA introduced streaming data into the singles chart on 24 November 2014, and the albums chart on 15 May 2017. ARIA Charts_sentence_23

In October 2018, ARIA changed the methodology to give greater emphasis to paid subscription streams over ad-supported streams. ARIA Charts_sentence_24

Publication ARIA Charts_section_1

The ARIA Report lists all charts in full and is available via paid e-mail subscription each week. ARIA Charts_sentence_26

Chart shows ARIA Charts_section_2

On 5 February 2006, the ARIA Chart Show was a radio program launched on the Nova network and broadcast throughout Australia, playing the official ARIA top 50 singles. ARIA Charts_sentence_29
