The River
Delta Goodrem

Impact Date: September 23

The River is Goodrem’s least Delta-like single to date. Co-written with Dave Hodges (Evanescence), it has a driving swamp-blues feel - musical territory Beyonce also touched on with this year’s Daddy Lessons.

The track has been remixed for single release (“we’ve mixed the choir up so they sound even bigger”) and will also be her next release in the UK and European market.

It follows Enough, a collaboration with rapper Gizzle, as another single that may be seen as unexpected.

“It was actually my mum’s favourite song,” Goodrem said of The River.

“She always wanted it to be a single. I’m really excited about all the creative visuals I’ve been able to do, they’re quite dark. I’m looking at The River like it’s a painting, like it’s a piece of art. I’m enjoying expressing the visuals more than I ever have. The River is quite playful and cheeky.
Goodrem is now throwing herself into intense rehearsals for her arena tour which will showcase this year’s No. 1 album Wings of the Wild.

“There’s new songs in the show but I’d never not play the hits,” Goodrem said.

“The hardest part is trying to fit all the songs into the setlist. It’ll probably be a two hour show, depending on how much I talk! I want to make sure every moment of the show is exciting.
I Love You Always Forever
Betty Who

Betty Who’s career peak #1 single I Love You Always Forever holds fast for a second week in a row while Major Lazer’s former #1, Cold Water ft. Justin Bieber and MO, returns to #2 from #4 after consistent increases in airplay in the last week. DJ Snake’s Let Me Love You ft. Justin Bieber drops to #3 from #2 as a result of this. The Chainsmokers’ Closer ft. Halsey drops to #4 from #3.

After three weeks in the chart, Sia’s The Greatest ft. Kendrick Lamar hits #5 from #9 and is headed straight for #1 if things keep going the way they are. Hailee Steinfeld & Grey’s Starving ft. Zedd hits a new peak of #6 from #7. Replacing them at #7 is Jonas Blue’s Perfect Strangers, which drops from #5.

Usher’s time in the Top 10 could be at risk this week with Crash dropping to #8 from #6. The same can be said for Calum Scott’s Dancing On My Own at #9 from #8. The last change this week is also the only new entry into the top bracket, Ariana Grande’s Side To Side ft. Nicki Minaj. The track which is also predicted to top the ARIA Singles chart tomorrow, hits #10 from #14 on its fourth week in the chart.
