Nine acts achieved their first number-one single in Australia, either as a lead or featured artist: Evermore, Hinder, Jay-Z, Fergie, Sean Kingston, Timbaland, Keri Hilson, The Veronicas and OneRepublic.[2]

Timbaland earned two number-one singles during the year for "The Way I Are" and "Apologize".
