The Voice stars’ music takes a nosedive


THE VOICE winner Judah Kelly has suffered a second week slump on the ARIA charts.

Kelly’s single Count On Me debuted at No. 19 last week — the highest-charting Voice winner’s single in four years.

However this week Count on Me sank to No. 53 with just 3506 sales — it sold 7980 copies in its first week of release.

Voice runner-up Hoseah Partsch fared even worse — his Paper Planes single dropped from No. 35 last week to No. 133, with 1206 copies sold.

Kelly’s debut album is released next Friday.

At this stage Universal have not signed Partsch, beyond releasing Paper Planes, however sources say they are planning to sign third finalist Fasika Ayallew.

The combination of streaming and downloads into the ARIA chart is favouring older releases — Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Justin Bieber has now spent nine weeks at No. 1 and is dominating the streaming chart.

Kelly’s Count on Me is No. 12 on ARIA’s Australian artist streaming chart, but doesn’t feature in the Top 50.

Radio is also slow to embrace Kelly’s single — it was the 82nd most played song last week.
