Post Malone rules the charts this week in Australia, where beerbongs & bentleys (Republic/Universal) debuts at No. 1 on the albums survey and 17 tracks from it impact the singles tally, including the current chart-leader “Psycho.”

Malone’s torrent of tracks in the ARIA Singles Chart Top 50 matches Michael Jackson’s posthumous record set in July 2009, with 13 of those debuting on the new survey, a feat matching Ed Sheeran’s record established in March 2017.

With “Psycho,” the U.S. singer and rapper secures his second No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart after “Rockstar” first hit the top in November 2017. “Rockstar” is at No. 12 this week, behind Malone's “Psycho,” “Better Now” (the week’s highest debut at No. 4) and “Paranoid” (new at No. 10).

On the ARIA Albums Chart, beerbongs holds off homegrown country star Keith Urban’s 10th studio set Graffiti U (Capitol/EMI), which starts at No. 2. Graffiti U is Urban’s seventh top 10 entry on the national albums chart.

A raft of Aussie artists appear in the upper tier of this week’s album chart, including singer and songwriter Missy Higgins, whose Solastalgia (Eleven/EMI) bows at No. 3; alt-country artist Kasey Chambers & The Fireside Disciples's Campfire (Warner) starts at No. 6; and Sydney alternative rock trio DMA's second set For Now (IOU/Warner) begins at No. 7.
