Post Malone snags a third No. 1 in Australia as “Sunflower” (Universal), his collaboration with Swae Lee, rises one spot to take the chart title in its 11th week. Meanwhile, Queen are the champions of the national albums survey.  

Malone ruled the ARIA Singles Chart with “Rockstar” (in November 2017) and “Psycho” (May 2018), and this week scores his seventh top 10 on the national survey with “WOW,” which starts at No. 6.   

Also this week, Ava Max’s “Sweet But Psycho” (Atlantic/Warner) continues its ascent as the U.S. artist's hit climbs 3-2, a new peak, while singles by Ariana Grande (“Thank U, Next” up 4-3 via Universal), George Ezra (“Shotgun” up 6-4 via Columbia/Sony) and Halsey (“Without Me” up 7-5 via Capitol/EMI) fill out the top 5.  

Making moves on the ARIA Top 50 Singles Chart is “1999” (EastWest/Warner), the collaboration between British singer and producer Charli XCX and Australian artist Troye Sivan, which vaults 28-18, a new peak, while U.S. alternative rock outfit Imagine Dragons take flight with “Bad Liar” (Interscope/Universal), which bounces 34-23, a new high. 
It’s taken 11 weeks to get there, and now Bohemian Rhapsody (Virgin/Universal), the soundtrack to the Queen biopic of the same name, is on top of ARIA Albums Chart. Bohemian Rhapsody rules a top 5 dominated by soundtracks and retrospective compilations, as Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born (Interscope/Universal) dips 1-2, the Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) lifts 4-3, and a pair of Queen sets, Greatest Hits (Universal) and The Platinum Collection (Universal), complete the top 5.
