Keith Urban and Drake are the kings of Australia’s charts. Urban, who was raised in the rural Australian town of Caboolture, has notched his third successive No. 1 on the latest ARIA Albums Chart with Ripcord (Capitol/EMI), his ninth studio set. It’s the followup to Fuse, which bowed at the top in September 2013.  

Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool (XL/Inertia) becomes the British alternative rock outfit’s sixth straight studio set to start at No. 2 on the chart. The album, Radiohead’s ninth, was released across multiple digital channels on May 8, but remains absent from the market-leading streaming service Spotify.

Drake's 'Views' Spends Second Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200, Radiohead Debuts at No. 3 

The top five is rounded out by a trio of former chart-toppers: Beyonce’s Lemonade (down 2-3 via Columbia/Sony), Adele’s eight-times platinum 25 (down 3-4 via XL/Inertia), and Drake’s Views (down 1-5 via Republic/Universal).

New albums by Kate Ceberano (Anthology at No. 9 via ABC/Universal), Skepta (Konnichiwa at No .13 via Boy Better Know/Sony), James Blake (The Colour In Everything at No. 16 ) and Travis Collins' Hard Light (at No. 20 via ABC/Universal) make solid starts.

Radiohead's 'A Moon Shaped Pool' Hits No. 1 on U.K. Album Charts

Drake might have dropped from the perch of the albums chart, but his hit "One Dance" feat. Wizkid & Kyla rides the top of the ARIA Singles Chart for a second week. Calvin Harris Feat. Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For” (Columbia/Sony) retains the No. 2 slot while a pair of new singles, Delta Goodrem’s “Dear Life” (Sony) and Justin Timberlake’s “Can't Stop The Feeling” (RCA/Sony), enter the chart at No. 3 and 4, respectively. The Chainsmokers Feat. Daya's"Don't Let Me Down" (Columbia/Sony) holds onto No. 5.
