Ariana Grande Bags Another Chart Double In Australia

Ariana Grande completes another chart double Down Under, as Thank U, Next (Universal) retains top spot on Australia’s albums chart and "7 Rings" enters week five at No. 1 on the national singles survey

After flooding last week’s ARIA Singles Chart with twelve Thank U, Next tracks, Grande lands eight in the current chart frame, including "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored," which holds at No. 2.

Khalid scores his fourth top ten as a lead artist with “Talk” (RCA/Sony), which rises 24-9 in its second week on the tally, and there’s a big leap for “Who Do You Love” (Columbia/Sony), The Chainsmokers’ collaboration with 5 Seconds of Summer which improves 28-18 in its second week.  

  

The week’s highest debut belongs to Cardi B and Bruno Mars, whose “Please Me” (Atlantic/Warner) starts at No. 22. That’s well down on the No. 6 peak for their “Finesse” collab from February 2018. 

With Grande’s Thank U, Next holding onto top spot on the ARIA Albums Chart, it becomes the pop star’s first LP to spent more than a week at the summit.

Queen still place three albums in the top ten, including the Bohemian Rhapsody (Virgin/Universal) soundtrack at No. 2, while Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born (Interscope/Universal) soundtrack dips 2-3. 

Melbourne alternative rock outfit The Cat Empire bow at No. 4 with Stolen Diamonds (Two Shoes/Inertia), their eighth studio album. It’s the band’s sixth top 10 and their first studio release since Rising With The Sun, which hit No. 1 in March 2016.

Also debuting on the chart this week is Florida Georgia Line’s Can't Say I Ain't Country (Big Machine/Universal) at No. 7, the country duo’s second top 10; and Avril Lavigne’s Head Above Water (BMG/Warner) starts at No. 9, the Canadian pop singer’s sixth top 10. Perth outfit Methyl Ethel just miss out on the top 10 with their third album, Triage (Dot Dash/Remote Control), new at No. 11. It’s the follow-up to Everything Is Forgotten, which peaked at No. 16 in March 2017.
