Ariana Grande is the new queen of Australia’s albums chart while Drake retains control of the market’s singles chart for a fourth week. Grande's third album Dangerous Woman (Universal) starts at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart to become the pop singer's second chart-topper Down Under; her sophomore LP My Everything reached the summit in September 2014. 

Grande’s hot start follows her performance of her two most recent singles, the album’s title track and "Into You," at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. "Dangerous Woman" peaked at No. 18 in Australia last month, and “Into You” is new at No. 46 this week.

Drake's 'Views' Still No. 1 on Billboard 200, Ariana Grande and Blake Shelton Debut at Nos. 2 & 3 

Meanwhile, Beyonce’s Lemonade (Columbia/Sony) holds at No. 2, Keith Urban’s Ripcord (Capitol/EMI) drops 1-3, Meghan Trainor’s Thank You (Epic/Sony) slips 3-4 and Adele’s eight-times platinum 25 (XL/Inertia) rises 7-5. Taylor Swift’s diamond certified (500,000 copies) force-of-nature 1989 (Big Machine/Universal) improves 15-6, Prince’s The Very Best Of (Warner) is up 11-7 while Eric Clapton’s I Still Do (Polydor/Universal) starts at No. 10, the guitar legend’s first top 10 since his B.B. King collaboration Riding With The King reached No. 5 in September 2000.

Drake’s “One Dance” has now enjoyed a month at No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The top new entry on this week’s singles survey is Adele’s “Send My Love (To Your New Lover),” which opens at No. 30. It’s the third single lifted from 25 and its top 30 berth follows the debut of its official music video at the BBMAs.
