Pink arrives at the premiere of Disney's 'Alice Through The Looking Glass' at the El Capitan Theatre on May 23, 2016 in Hollywood, Calif. 

Pink and Post Malone lock up another week atop Australia’s charts. 

Beautiful Trauma (RCA/Sony), Pink’s seventh studio set, enters a third week at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. It's already double-platinum certified (140,000 units) in less than a month on sale.

Next up: Ed Sheeran’s five-times platinum juggernaut Divide (Warner), which rises 2-1 in its 35th week on the survey while Melbourne rapper 360 has the highest new entry with Vintage Modern (EMI), which bows at No. 3 for his third top 10 album. Vintage Modern features assists from Seth Sentry, Pez, Gary Clark and others and follows on from Utopia, which peaked at No. 2 in June 2014. 

Former One Direction star Niall Horan sees his solo debut Flicker slip 2-4, while U.S. R&B star Chris Brown’s marathon, 45-track Halloween release Heartbreak On A Full Moon starts at No. 5. Heartbreak is Brown’s eighth studio album and his first top ten since X hit No. 4 in September 2014.

Just missing the top five this week is Kelly Clarkson’s Meaning of Life, which enters at No. 6 for the inaugural American Idol champ’s sixth top 10 entry, while sibling act Hanson gets a jump on the holiday season with Finally It's Christmas, new at No. 7. It’s the American pop trio’s first stint inside the top ten since 3 Car Garage went to No. 3 in May 1998, and their first appearance on the chart since This Time Around reached No. 11 in April 2000.

With Taylor Swift’s Reputation due to arrive this Friday, Swifties apparently can’t wait for their pop fix. Swift’s diamond-certified (500,000 units) 1989 rises 31-21 in its 130th week on the survey.  

It’s an unchanged top 5 on the ARIA Singles Chart, as Post Malone captures a sixth consecutive week at No. 1 with “Rockstar” (Republic/Universal), featuring 21 Savage. The American rapper bags another top 10 as “I Fall Apart” enters the top tier for the first time on a 14-6 spike.

With Malone dominating the tally for another frame, Camila Cabello’s radio-friendly “Havana” (Epic/Sony) featuring Young Thug can’t improve from second place, while Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” (Atlantic/Warner), Khalid’s “Young Dumb & Broke” (RCA/Sony) and Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still” (Atlantic/Warner) round out the top 5.

With a No. 15 debut, Selena Gomez & Marshmello’s collab “Wolves” (Interscope/Universal) snags the week’s highest new entry on the singles survey.  It’s Gomez’s fourth track this year to crack the top 50 (after the Kygo collaboration “It Ain’t Me”; “Bad Liar” and “Fetish”) and the EDM DJ and producer Marshmello’s second (after “Silence” with Khalid).
