Drake’s “In My Feelings” rules Australia’s singles chart for a fourth successive frame while Travis Scott snags his first leader with Astroworld (Sony), his third studio album.

Astroworld, which this week hits the summit of the Billboard 200 and is the highest charting new release in the U.K. (at No. 3), bows at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, ahead Drake’s Scorpion (holding at No. 2, via Republic/Universal), the soundtracks to Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (down 1-3, via Polydor/Universal) and The Greatest Showman (down 3-4, via Atlantic/Warner), and Celine Dion’s tour edition of The Best So Far... (down 4-5, via Columbia/Sony).

Three of Astroworld’s tracks, “Sicko Mode” (No. 7), “Stargazing” (No. 10) and “Butterfly Effect” (No. 46), impact the singles chart, completing a memorable week for the Houston-born artist.

Newcastle, Australia punk outfit Trophy Eyes equal their peak on the national albums tally with The American Dream (UNFD/Sony), which starts at No. 8. The rockers’ previous album, Chemical Miracle, also reached No .8 on the chart in October 2016.

Also enjoying a top 20 start this week is Stay Dangerous (Def Jam/Universal), YG’s third studio set and second entry in the albums chart. Stay Dangerous easily eclipses the No. 24 peak of Still Brazy, its 2016 predecessor.

With another Australian singles chart crown, Drake has spent 17 weeks at No. 1 this year, ARIA notes.

Drake's latest leads an unchanged top five, completed by Dean Lewis' "Be Alright" (Island/Universal), 5 Seconds Of Summer’s “Youngblood” (Capitol/EMI), Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” (Interscope/Universal) and Benny Blanco’s “Eastside” (Interscope/Universal), respectively.
