ARIA Reveals 2012's Top 100 Singles And Albums

The ARIA Charts have listed the top 100 highest selling singles and album of 2012. Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe takes out number one on the singles chart while P!nk’s album The Truth About Love is the top selling LP.

Jepsen beat out Psy’s Gangnam Style and Guy Sebastian’s Battle Scars featuring Lupe Fiasco. Meanwhile Pink surpassed One Direction, Adele and Michael Buble’s Christmas to reign supreme on the albums chart.

Plenty of Australia acts, other than One Direction and Guy Sebastian, shifted an impressive amount of units during 2012. Flume, Angus Stone, Parkway Drive and The Rubens are just a few local artists that made the albums chart.

Strong performing Australian singles came from Matt Corby, Hilltop Hoods and Gotye.
